The background artwork and character animations are fantastic, and the music is really nice. The humour is also great, and the characters are all very entertaining … I thought that the puzzles flowed really well into each other, rather than just feeling like a list of chores. I enjoyed the dialogue puzzles and the logic puzzles … Overall, a great game with lots of character and plenty of laughs.
I would like to say that it is definitely one of the best adventure titles out there at the moment! The dialogues are really polished with a lot of wit and nice puns… The riddles are logical and solvable also for inexperienced players, while adventure game professionals will still have a lot of fun with the whole scenario. It’s very obvious that this is a game made with a lot of love for the genre, and it’s definitely a game, that cannot be ignored.
If you like comedy games you’re bound to love this. The beautiful high resolution graphics and excellent voice acting help bring the world of Nelly further to life. Nelly’s brash, unconventional pirate especially is done great justice by the added voice acting, with other familiar characters also well represented. The smart writing, greatly improved production values, and great story all come together to make this a game well worth playing.
I’ve just finished the game and I thought it was very funny, daft (in a good way!) and charming; I really enjoyed the characters, humour and locations with an unexpected bonus of Tom Baker as ‘Sebastian’ – excellent!
