Summary

Runaway wasn't Pendulo's first adventure...

The Good

It's a great surprise, a fresh plot, nice comic-style graphics and nice music to add atmosphere. Hollywood Monsters is one of the best games from the Spanish developers Pendulo Studios (they also made Igor: Objective Uikokahonia and more recently Runaway). The main theme is singed by the spanish pop band 'La Unión'. That game will keep you entertained a lot of time, it's kind of hard, maybe some people find that an annoyance but i really found it a real good point, i was sick of bloody easy adventures that you could finish in two days.

The Bad

Well, the spanish voice acting could have been better in my opinion and some of the music sometimes seems out of place. Also the dificulty could be annoying to you, but hey, for me that was a good point, the puzzles were real logic, but i supose people could get frustrated trying to solve some of them.

The Bottom Line

If you like adventure point & click games Hollywood Monsters is a must, it is really similar to that old Lucas Arts adventures (especially for it's dificulty), and well, if you like Igor: Objective Uikokahonia or Runaway (Hollywood Monsters is from the same company) you will have a good time with that game.
