Gibbous: A Cthulhu Adventure
Top Critic Average
A Cthulhu Adventure is a real treat, and one of the most enjoyable games of its genre and textual influence I've played in a long while. It isn't the longest game by any means, but there are many Easter eggs and cool horror references hidden away to find.
A solid first effort from the Romanian outfit, a good narrative just let down by some overly simple puzzling
Gibbous: A Cthulhu Adventure is a classic humorous adventure that parodies numerous mystical stories with a touch of Romanian self-irony. Of course, the authors noticeably fall short of the standards of Monkey Island, but they try very hard to please their gamer. In any case, the cat Kitya is one of the most striking characters, which we shamelessly forgot, summing up last year.

Gibbous skews its Lovecraft origins to comic effect, though it would have benefitted from more testing puzzles and less obvious humour.
It can be an alright introduction to the genre for people who haven’t experienced old school adventure games and don’t want to use walkthroughs. Anyone else will find a title that’s pretty, fluid, and underwhelming.
It isn’t groundbreaking in any way, but did anyone expect it to be? It’s just yet another very good entry into a genre that remains ever popular.
All in all, Gibbous - A Cthulhu Adventure is a game that no self-proclaimed point-and -click fan should overlook, as it will definitely find a place in your gaming library, comedy movie collection, and finally, your heart.
Gibbous - A Cthulhu Adventure is a quality title which offers engaging story, wonderful visual design, and most importantly remains loyal to its source. Obviously some issues and problems are here and there that might hurt the experience a little especially for hardcore adventure fans, but overally I would definitely recommend it.

I haven’t shouted, cheered, or laughed this much at a point and click adventure in a very, very long time.
With a beautiful art style and a great cast of characters, Gibbous – A Cthulhu Adventure could be a modern day point-and-click classic
