Tap-Repeatedly/Four Fat Chicks ( ) (100%)

While the gameplay mechanics are hardly unique and the QuickTime clips as grainy as ever, the richly grimy background visuals and the haunting soundtrack create a compelling, albeit unlikely, venue for a quest. Toss in the highly articulated roach animation (the antennae can be turned on or off in the game preferences) and Bad Mojo remains, for those willing to face it, an unforgettable experience.

Bad Mojo est un jeu exceptionnel, dans la mesure oĂč il surprend son joueur Ă  chaque seconde. Impossible de s’ennuyer alors que l’on erre parmi ces objets du quotidien transformĂ©s en piĂšges infernaux, notre cuticule comme seule protection. En ressort un plaisir inĂ©galĂ© amalgamĂ© Ă  une tension de tous les instants, ne rendant le jeu que plus dĂ©licieux encore. Bref, si vous attendiez cette phrase, sachez qu’elle a ici tout son sens : contrairement aux attentes, Bad Mojo est tout sauf un titre qui vous donnera le cafard

Making a cockroach crawl through a decrepit San Francisco waterfront hotel may not sound like your idea of fun, but Bad Mojo is first-rate entertainment that will delight thinking game players and David Lynch fans everywhere.

MacGamer's Ledge, The (Mac Ledge) (9 out of 10) (90%)

If you have both the nerve and the stomach for it, you will find in Bad Mojo a weird, disconcerting, and thrillingly original gaming experience, with superb graphics and production values unmatched by most other adventure games. While so many bigger companies are content to churn out knock-offs of best-selling games, Pulse Entertainment clearly puts a premium on creativity and originality. I doubt this game will ever become a bestseller, but it is sure to gain a faithful following.

Macworld (8.8 out of 10) (88%)

The animation, adopted from the work of genuinely serious artificial-life scientists, is amazing, and the puzzles are all appropriately cockroachish. Ultimately, though, it's the point of view that gets to you, the experience of seeing the world from a six-legged, ground-level perspective. When you finish Bad Mojo, I guarantee that the next time you see a roach, you won't be so quick to stomp.

Just Adventure (B) (75%)

Bad Mojo is a unique game and a nice change of pace to the "standard" adventure template. It puts you in a very strange scenario, one you won't see in many other releases. Some will find it disturbing, some will find it intriguing, and I'm guessing that almost all will find it just plain different. Because of this, I think you'll discover the initial addiction factor to be very high. Despite the fact that it is rather short, and not very difficult, I think the ride is fun, and Bad Mojo will provide some solid entertainment. This title won't necessarily be one you put in your trophy case, but it definitely will be a game you will remember.

Mac Game Gate ( ) (60%)

To sum things up, Bad Mojo is an average game. It is an all round good game, except longevity is a real big problem. But I think for the price of $30 (plus you get two free posters worth $17 apiece) you should take a look at it.

Some of the puzzles in Bad Mojo can stump you. But to help you hang in there, a first-rate tips book has just been released. Experienced puzzle-solving games players, however, should have no problem solving the mystery that is Mojo, and Mac users everywhere are sure to delight in this imaginative, well-developed title.
