Critic Reviews for The Dark Prophecy
The Dark Prophecy is a fun little point-and-click adventure. All the puzzles make enough sense, and you can finish the whole thing in under an hour. It teases further parts of the story, and this certainly feels like the first chapter of what will hopefully be a longer tale.
The Dark Prophecy tries to capture some of that magic that old school adventure game had but ultimately falls well short. The visuals and music are actually the best part of this game and while the gameplay is solid it just doesn’t have satisfying puzzles or writing to make it fully worth recommending.
What you have here is a charming love letter to the point-and-click genre. It faithfully replicates the feel and style of those types of games. I, as a veteran of the genre, would have preferred more challenging puzzles, more places to explore, and more NPCs to interact with. As stated above though it’s a great introduction to the genre of games for those who have never played the style before. Overall, it’s a short, but very intricate adventure game with time and effort put into the graphics and sound. It’s bound to keep you entertained for a while as you explore its charming fantasy world. I give The Dark Prophecy the Thumb Culture Silver Award.
