Guard Duty is an ambitious adventure game, inspired by the likes of Discworld and Monkey Island, that doesn't quite reach its goal. Still, if you're looking for a short, funny romp through two distinct worlds the game definitely delivers.

Guard Duty, for me, came out of nowhere, but instantly became a fun, short experience that I tip my cap to.

If you're a big fan of point-and-click adventures, especially those respecting the genre's heyday, you'll find Guard Duty to be a good game. I can't give it as high a recommendation as first thought due to some story aspects and the way they're intertwined, but I liked it enough that I'm hoping for a sequel.

Short decent adventure for old school players. It is not perfect, but good for restful trip.
