Ankh: Heart of Osiris [import] review

  • Good puzzles and story
  • Likeable characters
  • Treading old ground
  • Breaking no new ground
  • Clicking sometimes misses
  • Some not obvious puzzles

Sometimes the puzzles don’t make themselves obvious - a man complaining about a sketch was placated with groovy music. Also clicking on things - important in a point-and-click - seems a little fussy when it comes to using things from your inventory on world items. However, you tend to have all the time in the world, so it’s just an irritant, rather than fatal to the game. Sadly, it just breaks that lovely bubble every so often.

Heart of Osiris won’t convert adventure-haters in the way the polished charms of Sam & Max might, but it’s more than good enough if you’re willing to take off your jaded hat for long enough to combine some crazy crap in your inventories. Oh, and it still rhymes with wank.
