Review

Good

  • The script is pretty hilarious, lots of funny dialog options.
  • The graphics are quite beautiful, even in the EGA version.

Bad

  • You're unable to choose a lot of the dialog options because the game cuts-short a lot of conversations. The only way to read these options is to keep reloading the game.
  • Like many adventure games, some of the puzzles are particularly difficult to solve and don't make much sense. I can attribute this to trying to pad the length of the game, trying to sell hint books, or laziness from the developers. Either case is annoying.
  • Several parts of the game are just too silly and ruin the experience (but only temporarily).

Ugly

  • Nothing really, this game is pretty solid.
