If you're after a little taste of what The Last Crown: Blackenrock has in store, then Midnight Horror is well worth the tiny asking price. It may be short but it's solid entertainment, with enough of a sinister vibe to pull in new horror-loving fans.
Wadjet Eye has put out yet another classic sci-fi adventure game, packed with entertaining characters, thoughtful and original puzzles and plenty of nostalgic goodness. If you're the least bit interested in point n' click or sci-fi, Technobabylon is well worth a punt - and don't forget to check out earlier titles such as Gemini Rue and Primordia if they passed you by before.
With three episodes still to go, Tales from the Borderlands has plenty of time to inject extra thrills into the story and hopefully introduce some more compelling gameplay elements. All the same, I'm looking forward to getting stuck into episode three, thanks to the compelling characters and hilarious dialogue.
We highly recommend Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition to anyone with the slightest interest in point n' click adventures. Even if you just enjoy a dark supernatural storyline, there's enough here to keep you entertained.
The subject matter of A Golden Wake won't match everyone's tastes, while the lower difficulty will also no doubt disappoint some adventure game enthusiasts, but A Golden Wake kept us entertained from start to finish thanks to some interesting characters, smart scripting and buckets of old school charm.
That said, we thoroughly enjoyed our time with Sherlock Holmes Crimes and Punishments, which is our favourite game starring the drug-addled sleuth so far. From the crisp and detailed graphics to the huge variety in gameplay, this is a solid puzzling adventure that will please anyone after a good yarn.
Sadly there's a kind of crushing inevitability about this second season's climax and we'd be surprised if no one predicts the dramatic finale. We personally thought the pay-off was solidly presented, delivering a tense and emotional sledgehammer to the gut, but we're intrigued to see how the third season pans out given those difficult choices, which lead to one of four different endings (five technically, but two are basically the same).
We really wanted to like Gods Will Be Watching. The concept is brilliant, the scenarios are tense and the story is thought-provoking. But the combination of the random trial-and-error gameplay and the horrible bugs made us want to slit our wrists long before the conclusion.
[T]his is another nail-biting instalment that kept us hooked for its 90-minute play time (we completed it in one go, as with the other episodes in Walking Dead Season Two). We found our allegiances changing throughout, which kept us constantly on our toes, and the cliffhanger ending promises a bloody climax come part five.
