The Mystery of Woolley Mountain is an average point and click game that loses its spark by the end. A good mix of puzzles is offset by an unengaging plot and characters.

The Mystery of Woolley Mountain might have more of a low-rent aesthetic that's more South Park than Monkey Island, but it all ties back into a homemade feel that really sells its quirkiness and sense of personality.

The Mystery of Woolley Mountain certainly serves up rewarding mental challenges, but they're paired with a constant challenge of another sort: the game's unsophistication in almost every other department. Stilted in its art style and comedic choices, it will test your nerves as much as your brain.

The Mystery of Woolley Mountain doesn't do a very good job at this particular type of game, but it's ultimately up to the player to determine if this title is for them.
