The Mystery of Woolley Mountain is a point and click adventure game that was funded successfully on Kickstarter. Not all games reach their targets, so this tells you a lot about the team and their vision. I am a big fan of this genre of game, and so I was intrigued to play it. What mystery lies in wait on Woolley Mountain? Read on for my Rapid Review.

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 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.

Once these issues have been corrected, Woolley Mountain will be a fun, if short, experience worth playing just for some quick laughs. As frustrating as the title can be, it is shining example of how to do comedy in video games without ever being offensive. If puns and light-hearted silliness are your style, then you will adore what The Mystery of Woolley Mountain has to offer.
