The Little Acre is a phenomenal game: both the music and the animation style are gorgeous. Very reminiscent of Revolution Software's old point-and-click adventures, but with a noticeable Irish slant. Being Irish myself, I thoroughly enjoyed the effort put into the visuals and sound. Gameplay-wise, this is standard adventure game fare, with the puzzles all having logical solutions (a good thing!) that can reasonably resolved without too much head-scratching.
Short but brilliant. Best of all, it dodges the dull dead doggy dilemma. This is a game that's willing to be serious and humorous one after another and even simultaneously, and it works quite well! The story, of a father looking for his own father when his daughter follows him to somewhere neither should be, had plenty of work put into it! Of course, if you seek challenge, best look elsewhere. The only "puzzle" I needed help with all game was when I went in a window and failed to realize that I had to leave through another window without doing a single thing. Looking forward to future projects by the same developers!
The Little Acre is couple hours long, simple point and click game. I wish that they had fleshed out the world and the relationships with the characters a bit, and it all has kind of an abrupt ending with a bad guy who's motivation of being a bad guy and what real threat he actually poses aren't really established, but for a cheap game, that you can spend a relaxing evening with, it was perfect for me. Puzzles aren't hard at all, and it's all very straightforward. Voice acting is far from perfect but I really liked it anyway. Lily was easily the best part about the game, this little girl who finds adventure wherever she can and doesn't shy away from danger, very simple child character but it fits here with her charm. I wanted a bit more story and it really is just couple hours long, but it also didn't really need more, good way to spend an evening, maybe play with your kid.
Lindo juego, me gusto mucho la historia, lo recomiendo para pasar el rato 7/10 aunque no es tan largo, pero a los gamers que les gusta juegos de historia se los recomiendo
