Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink
Top Critic Average
Publisher: Artifex Mundi
Genres: Puzzle, Adventure
Clockwork Tales of Glass and Ink will last players around 3 or 4 hours depending on how fast puzzles are figured out or how much abuse the hint system gets. It's best to just get absorbed into the world they created and figure it out as best players can. It's not the best looking game or the most elaborate of titles to keep you occupied for hours, but it's charming and aside from the shorter length the only other issue I had with it was the silly animation for talking. Characters come off looking goofy the way they move, and I found myself laughing out loud when I shouldn't have. That aside, if more hidden objects games are like Clockwork Tales of Glass and Ink, I'd be more inclined to give them a try.
Although the game may feel short, the story doesn't outstay its welcome and players will likely appreciate the shorter amount of time spent listening to the variable quality of the voice acting. Adventure fans shouldn't pass this one up, and even those who don't normally play this type of game should perhaps consider splashing out on an easy and enjoyable completion.
