About this gameThis is the second part of the Earl Bobby trilogy. You should play "Earl Bobby is looking for his Shoes" first to understand everything. The worlds most famous Scottish Earl continues his quest for the sense of life. And this time he is looking for something even more important than his shoes. This time he is looking for his balls...yes, his balls.
STORY: After Earl Bobby succeeded in finding his shoes, comb, kilt, golf clubs, car and ultimately the way there, he happily reached the Glenfiddich Golf Club to pursue one of his favorite diversions: Playing golf. But soon he recognizes that his destiny to lose important items has followed him: One of his balls gets robbed by a bird. When he tries to search for it, he soon gets involved in a complex plot, in which he has to face the famous golf player Tiger Woody in a tournament. Baron Mucki the millionaire and Lula Hankingfire the young nymphomaniac will surely help him to win the contest. But this isn't enough. He will have to solve lots of weird puzzles to finally find his balls.

What did bother me was the seemingly random appearance of Mucki and the two women. I understand it's funny to make the women pass by at that instant, but it's sort of odd that they appear while you are building a trap you can't even complete without an element from their car.
Also the violence is much less present than in every Tom and Jerry clip, or every Stan and Olli movie...
It's a great game here, and I am looking forward to the sequel.
I want to translate your game in french.

I was able to collect many items, but find no use for any of them, except coins.
The puzzles at the beginning are a bit wrenched and difficult. But when you get into the game it really catches you!
Great choices in music and a lot of surprises.
I never saw such ingenious close-up scenes like in this game. This creates a lot of atmosphere and made me somehow addicted to it. It's like playing an actor in a movie.
It took me about four days to play the game through. The puzzles aren't simple, but always logical and there are lot's of hints, if you pay attention.
The author payed attention at every single detail in the game. The way the main character fits with his colours to the backgrounds is great. Every action is animated individually in a very fluid way.
The funny cartoon like cutscenes made me chuckle lots of times. Really, I recommend this game, it's an absolute must play.
For a start, the few things that marred the first Earl Bobby game has been sorted out. The jerky animation of the character has been totally smoothed out and there's tons more of those brilliant close-up animations thrown in. The golf course on which the game takes place is delightfully designed, with lots of uplifting bright colours. This ensures that Earl Bobby's world is a wonderful place to be immersed in.
There's loads of new characters to interact with, as well as the return of Arnold the Armour, (surely a cult character in the making) and the open conversational style makes interactions great fun. The puzzles are just about right. Provided you listen to everything that is said, the clues are all there to help you through. There's even a rudimentary arcade style driving range simulation and a big showstopping musical number thrown in.
The only thing that felt a bit odd about Earl Bobby is Looking for his Balls was the new levels of innuendo in the game. In sharp contrast with the sweet original Earl Bobby game, at times Earl Bobby is Looking for his Balls feels like a 1970s sex comedy. Still, the title should be warning enough that this is the case and the slightly more risque humour is presented so matter of factly that it retains a certain level of innocence and fits in with the games style.
Earl Bobby is a great player character and I have no doubt we will see him return in more games. The concept and the execution of the Earl Bobby games is so excellent that it is set to become a classic AGs series and surely a future award winner
I think the author has made great progress since my very discouraging (and a bit overreacted) first review of one of his games. I hope you enjoy it!
