Abandonia Reloaded
The game itself isn't too long and that was disappointing to see as the mystery is not really that long of one, it's a decent length, though, and it really does not take away from the game. Other than that point the game is very well done all around, you can tell a lot of effort made into developing it so it's nice to see that the developers took their time on this. I highly recommend you to check out Nick Bounty: A Case of the Crabs and play this excellent mystery.

Skvělou atmosféru vytváří černobílé zpracování, tak typické pro postarší detektivky. Musím ovšem pochválit nadabování postav. Každá hláška vašeho hrdiny, ale i okolních lidí, je namluvena a ačkoliv to není zrovna kvalitní, už samotná přítomnost dabingu vyzdvihuje hodnocení o několik bodů výše. Na co čekáte? Detektivky nepadají z nebe jen tak a propásnout tuhle parádičku, to je snad hřích! (pět otčenášů a dvoudenní půst by měl zabrat a odčinit vaše provinění. :o)

Hrej!
Všechno se odehrává v ani ne desítce lokací, děj je vyprávěn s řadou filmových reminiscencí a kvalitním provedením. Hratelnost je nicméně trochu uměle natahována ne zrovna logickými úkony, které musí hráč provést, aby se posunul dále v příběhu. Case of the Crabs boduje díky stylově černobílé grafice, jež budí komiksový dojem, povedl se i hudební doprovod.

A sequel would be most welcome if a bit more time was put in to making those final touches – for an independent developer, I really did enjoy this game (considering it takes no more than an hour or so to play), but was slightly disappointed at some aspects, and wondered if the developer was hurrying to meet a deadline instead of taking his time and going through each step. As wonderful a gaming experience as this was, I’d have enjoyed it better had things been cleaned up a little – if he had played through the game by himself, he probably would have realized some of the little quirks therein. Overall, this was still a wonderful effort and I’m sure that many mystery fans will look into this game as I did.
