Summary

A Bit Sleepy

The Good

As with all Pendulo's games, voice acting and dialogue are pretty good, as is the storyline.

The Bad

The game is very sleepy. I was shocked to see the release date; it seems like a much, much, much older game than Runaway. Part of the problem is that internal dialogue (i.e. thinking to oneself) is now visual only. You don't hear peoples' internal dialogue. So it's a game where you'll hear a lot of music and some dialogue, which gives it a sleepy characteristic.

There's some pixel hunting involved, which kind of blows.

The Bottom Line

Not nearly as enjoyable or playable as Pendulo's other titles. It feels incomplete / rushed; hard to believe it's a 2012 release. Definitely not a polished game.
