Great point and click adventure!

  • Summary: This is a great point and click adventure. I never played the original title back in 96 and I am glad they decided to port it on to the ds. Great story with deadly clowns and other interesting characters. Some of the puzzles are a bit dumb but overall they fit well into the game.

  • Summary: I picked up this game after reading all of its positive reviews and about how it is considered a classic in the genre. Apparently it's a port of a PC game of the same name, but I only got into adventure gaming on the DS so I haven't played the original.

  • Summary: The game has a great story, interesting characters, and sometimes challenging puzzles--although, the game allows you to request extra hints. Some of the reviews I read about the game raved about the use of the creative use of the dual screen for cut-scene animations; however, this is not a reason to...

  • Excerpt: I have always been a fan of point and click games, so when I heard that one of my favorites was going to be made for the DS, I knew I had to have it. Broken Sword is a great murder mystery game that has been made for many platforms in the past with the most popular being on the PC.
  • Pros: addictive
  • Cons: long blurb

  • Summary: I haven't played this one much yet as I'm busy with another one but I expect to enjoy it just the same as the others I have, puzzle type games are the ones I like it helps keep this granny's brain active.

Whilst most game development companies chose the less risky "fancy graphics and franchises" route it was glad to see that some stayed behind to create more witty games for puzzle lovers the world...
