A game review from a woman’s point of view (5+/5).
MAD HEAD GAMES
What I love the most about Mad Head Games is their capacity to keep a story intriguing until the very end. This is a sci-fi mystery thriller which I truly enjoyed because you never know what’s going to happen next.
As usual, the artwork in this game is truly outstanding. The opening scene was good but the in-game cutscenes are even better. Prepare yourself to be amused with a wild ride…
VOICE OVERS (5/5):
Here too I must say that Mad Head Games work with a team of professionals who do a great job in impersonating the characters.
I went to read the credits because the music is so carefully developed for each scene that only an expert musician is able to do that. Milos Nikolic is his name. As I love music, I couldn’t possibly ignore the fact that each piece in this game is a work of art. Having real musicians creating music specifically for a game is something that other developers should really start doing.
SFX (Sound Effects) (5/5):
Appropriate for each single item in the scene and for the environmental effects.
ARTISTIC ILLUSTRATIONS (5/5):
I was quite impressed by the originality of the work in this game. There are many games with spectacular art nowadays, however, it is really difficult to find something as original and refreshing as in this game.
MINI GAMES (5++/5):
This game is packed with absolutely original minigames. They are not too challenging, just a lot of fun. This is definitely a very strong point for this game.
HIDDEN OBJECT (5/5):
Very few traditional ho scenes in this game so this is very refreshing because I usually get bored when there are too many traditional ho in a game. The other ho scenes are very interactive and a lot of fun. Good job!
I chose to have the tutorial only for “unusual” game play. I particularly enjoy having the possibility to select the level of difficulty and whether I want sparkling areas, hints available or the chance to skip a mini game (which is a crime so never – ever – skip a mini game unless you are desperate)! Everything is user friendly and intuitive so you have your tasks and your map – which you don’t really need because there are very few areas available for each chapter of the game -. Just one note about the journal – why did they use such cheap fonts with no artistic touch for the journal? It looks ugly compared to the rest of the game!-.
In any case, Mad Head Games got me hooked, I’ve already bought another couples of game which I had no planned buying. Life as a vegan nomad minimalist is really hard but with the little budget I have, I managed to squeezed in a few games because they are really worth every penny!
Stay playful and joyful dear players because the biggest game has yet to start…
