Masquerade: The Baubles of Doom is an action-adventure set in the fantasy world of The Realm, centered around a battle for the mythical Druid Orbs, the most powerful pair of balls in all the land. For it was said that whomever possessed the Orbs, possessed the power to rule all. From foreign shores came the Clowns, an army of morose maniacs determined to find the Orbs. And so began the Great Clown Invasion. Join Jaxx, the wise-cracking jester, and his beautiful enigmatic partner in crime, Comedia. Armed with a map that reveals the secret location of the Orbs, Jaxx and Comedia soon find themselves on the run from the Clown Army. With Comedia captured, you must guide Jaxx to rescue her AND stop the map from falling into the hands of those diabolical, evil, merciless, despicable, Clowns!

Masquerade: The Baubles of Doom Critic Reviews

Although it may be undeniably pretty, Masquerade: The Baubles of Doom suffers from a number of glaring flaws that prevent it from being a worthwhile experience. A clunky combat system, misdirected humour, and stale repetitive gameplay are just a few things that will likely diminish any amount of enjoyment that you may be able to draw from this sadly mediocre effort.

Masquerade: The Baubles of Doom can be funny at times and has some nostalgic charm to it, but underneath those attributes is a game that is dated, repetitive and frustrating.

[Masquerade: The Baubles of Doom] never takes itself seriously, smashes the fourth wall, and even the potty jokes are funny

Masquerade: The Baubles of Doom doesn't particularly succeed at anything it puts its hand to. It isn't funny, with its generically off-colour humour and a bad sense of comedic timing. It's not particularly responsive, with stiff controls and awkward level design. It's repetitive, tedious, frustrating, and completely lacking in the elements that make for a good action game, or for a good comedy game. Between its crushing lack of self-awareness and bland gameplay, it's one circus that's even unfit for the sideshow.
