No, wait! Dragons, come back! We didn’t mean it! Without you, any excitement inherent in this Russian roleplayer’s narrative is dispelled! Too late, they’re gone. And so is any real engagement with A Farewell to Dragons.
The concept of an opera-singing vampire, desperate to be a star on the Paris stage, is fantastic adventure game fodder, both for its originality and for the many puzzle-design possibilities in the traditional vampire weaknesses. Every room is a thing of beauty; a glorious mix of Tim Burton and Monkey Island that doesn’t need advanced technology to impress. The music is excellent.
Jump off a tall building while opening your mouth as wide as possible, and you’re likely to emit a sound that closely resembles the name of indie developer Dejobaan Games’ latest effort. How cleverly fitting, since that’s exactly what Aaaaa! is all about. This out of control base jumping simulation wins far more than the award for being one of the longest and weirdest-named games around.
Tintin is a Belgian boy who somehow manages to be a journalist without ever writing a word, who knocks out grown men twice his size with a single fling of his fist, and who lives in a world where the only woman is a jolly opera singer who exists only to make us laugh. In short, his life plays out like a little boy's dream – or at least the type of boy who juggles ambitions of winning the science fair with fantasies of clobbering the local bully. The good news is that it's not a disagreeable dream, and while it suffers from excessively easy gameplay and forced variety, The Adventures of Tintin is a bit more rewarding than its movie franchise origins might suggest...
Forget what you’ve seen on CSI. When it comes to solving a murder case, all that you really need is the ability to locate five peaches in a cluttered bedroom. In this mystery-themed puzzler it’s not powers of deduction that’ll help you play the role of Poirot, but I-Spy skills and 20/20 vision.
Making an online game these days is tough, as there are few interesting settings left to force into the bizarre mold that is the MMO. Luckily for us, there’s a chauvinistic lore-trove waiting in the wings: Robert E. Howard’s Hyboria - the world of shirtless sword-swinger Conan the Cimmerian - which has now become the most brutal MMO in existence.
