This point and click adventure was actually pretty good. the story was engaging and the action response was pretty good. Not perfect mind you, i had some trouble navigating at times, but still very good.
the writing is very much like the classic noir detective style and the graphic match perfectly with it too. the dark smoky colors and the bleak surroundings of 1934 New York are spot on. The characters are even properly fleshed out and feel like they could have been real people, and not over the top characters of what the 30's were like. The game runs smooth, but can stutter from time to time when moving between screens, but nothing that you can get past easily. would love to play more written by the same team and can't wait to see if they keep making more like this!
