SummaryDon't bother. Unless ...
The GoodThis game's has two redeeming features .. the graphics and the soundtrack (background music). The voice acting is good in parts and very uninspired in others but better than average overall.
The idea of viewing the world through the eyes of a senile old woman is certainly novel and will present an experience that you probably haven't gotten from another adventure game.
The BadThe gameplay itself is very bad .. unless, of course, you don't mind having to have a walkthrough available at many points throughout the game. You probably will not get far without one. Therein lies the problem. The puzzles in the game (mostly inventory based) are so obscure and un-intuitive that they won't even make sense to you after you have been given the solution. Another serious drawback to this game is that there are critical sequences that can only be surpassed by exact timing of mouse clicks when absolutely no clues exist as to the nature or reason for those sequences. Arrrrgh! To be honest, this is one of those games that leave you with little satisfaction upon completion. It may leave you with a sense of relief that the frustration is finally over, however.
