Tangle Tower is an exemplary addition to the point-and-click genre, providing superb puzzles and very well written dialogue, backed up by some of the finest voiceover work in recent memory.

But to be honest, these are very minor gripes considering just how much fun we had in the company of Detectives Grimoire and Sally.
