A great, entertaining adventure game.

As point and click adventure games go, it's a great game - wacky characters, the puzzles and story make sense, and there's just enough humour to make you smile every now and then. But you really should play The Book of Unwritten Tales first - although this is a prequel, the characters on their own don't explain enough about the world or who they are, meaning you'l miss out on a lot of the experience. Good length with no bugs or crashes - a great way to spend a weekend.

A very good prequel

If you loved Book of Unwritten Tales, you MUST buy this game. In this prequel you play as Captain Nate and...the Critter, of course, searching to avoid the terrible Ma'Zaz. During your quest, you will experiment pretty much the same gameplay of the first episode: dialogue and tons of logical puzzles. Yes, the puzzles are not to easy or too hard to think about, but you can raise the difficult bard by selecting the hard difficulty. Yes, there are two difficult levels, and on the second some helps are taken away and some puzzles are hard to solve. But why the price of 20€ (16 thanks to GMG promotion)? Easy: because this isn't a data disk, but a brand new chapter of Book of Unwritten Tales saga. To beat the game, in fact, you will need around ten hours on hard, pretty much the same time I used to achieve the first game. If you loved the first games, you'll buy this. Ah, I almost forgot: parodies. A lot of parodies.I found one of Portal from Valve but, of course, there are a high number of this hidden through the dialogues.
