The game is loosely based on the works of renowned sci-fi author Jules Verne and tells the the story of Michel Arden, a scientist who is travelling to the moon in giant shell that was shot out of a giant cannon. Arden awakes before he reaches his final destination only to find that his two travel companions have both died in mysterious circumstances. As expected, Arden vows to discover just what happened on the journey - odd enough his only witness to the crime was a ckicken - and along the way discovers the secrets of an ancient Lunar civilization. Now how about that, huh?
The main story is quite interesting and I was really in to it. I really wanted to know what happened and I enjoyed the game quite a bit. And what's the best - the major focus of the game is puzzle solving! And the puzzles are quite hard to solve and unfortunately time consuming as well. Arden, the main charatcer, is forced to rely on his wits to survive, and has to use the items around him to solve the puzzles.
The gameplay was interesting and I enjoyed it almost as much as the story, but the graphics are really bad.
All in all I think the game is pretty neat, puzzle gamers really ought to try it out and the price is far from being expensive.
Point and click adventure inspired by Vernemichalmichal | Aug. 6, 2013 | See all michalmichal's reviews »
I am a fan of adventure games and have read some books by Jules Verne as a kid, so I wanted to check if the Journey to the Center of the Moon was any good. And what I found was that it's a decent point and click adventure game with interesting locations and an alien race of Selenites. In fact interactions with Selenites seem to be the focal point of the game, at least for me. You get to learn about their civilization and culture, learn their language and get to know them better. Although the game is not a faithful representation of Verne's work, it captures the feel of his works and has enough references to please a fan of Verne's books.
