If you like your games with an offbeat sense of humour and plenty of personality, Flipping Death comes recommended. Its central game design hook of flipping between life and death makes for an interesting world to navigate and puzzles to solve, and its characters are so oddball and endearing you'll want to hear every conversation in full, not to mention find out how it all ends.

A slight disappointment after the surprise hit of Stick It To The Man, but still one of the best modern day equivalents to LucasArts style comedy and puzzling.

Flipping Death is a quirky and lovingly crafted adventure that doesn't overstay its welcome.

However, it had some pretty big shoes to fill, and it left me slightly wanting. I really hope this isn't the last we see of this universe, and I'd love to eventually get a direct sequel to Ray's adventures from the original, but this serves as a wonderful appetizer in the meantime. If you're looking for some low stakes, goofy fun, you could do far worse.
