Pahelika is a highly professional and beautiful game, but it could use a little more player freedom. One cannot even decide in which order to face the challenges! As it stands, it's something you can only really play once. Hopefully the sequel (I'm sure there is one planned!) will provide the player with an element of choice over what they do and where they go.

Despite its downfalls, Pahelika is still a solid puzzle adventure which many will be sure to buy and enjoy. $19.99 is too steep a price to pay for a 3-hour game in my opinion, so be sure to play the demo before deciding to buy it. Who knows? You may just get hooked yourself.

If you're a fan of adventure games, but not of their tendency to be punishingly difficult, definitely give Pahelika a try. It's no pushover, but the concessions it makes to ensuring you have everything you need to succeed make it a more welcoming adventure experience.

Die Schwierigkeit besteht eher darin, seltsam aussehende Objekte, die im Inventar keinerlei Objektbezeichnung erhalten, an den richtigen Stellen einzusetzen. Die Grafik der im Comic-Stil gehaltenen "Zwischensequenzen" ist auch nicht das Gelbe vom Ei, denn die Schrift ist so unscharf, dass man genauer hinsehen muss, um sie lesen zu können. Zudem laufen am Ende der Kapitel immer wieder dieselben Bilder ab. Die Hintergrundmusik ist das Beste an diesem Spiel. Sie ist geheimnisvoll und passt perfekt zum Abenteuer. Auch die Stimme des englischsprachigen Erzählers wurde gut gewählt. Eine Fortsetzung ist bereits angekündigt. Ich würde gerne wissen, wie es mit dem geheimnisvollen magischen Buch weitergeht, denn im Grunde ist "Pahelika" kein schlechtes Spiel. Es ist lediglich nicht ausgereift und benötigt grafisch und vom Gameplay her einige Aufbesserungen und Feinschliff.

Falling well short of its intended challenge of the ages, Pahelika comes off more as a limited puzzle-based diversion for an afternoon.
