Alter Ego

24 December 2010
  • Excerpt: Sometimes a game can benefit from being an anachronism in the era of high definition, mega budget titles. The “Adventure Game” genre reaps the most benefit, as its very mechanics eschew advances in graphics and game design from the last decade, settling on pre-rendered backgrounds and intriguing storylines to provide the main draw.

Alter Ego

Adventure Classic Gaming
4 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Alter Ego is an example of a point-and-click adventure game that nearly hits the mark of perfection from beginning to end as a game for novice gamers. The game tells of a murder story à la Jack the Ripper from the perspectives of a duo of very different characters—a petty thief named Timothy Moor and a police detective named Detective Sergeant Briscol. The game takes place in the town of Plymouth in England around the late 1800s.

Expert Review

5 August 2010
  • Summary: As any fan of a good murder mystery will tell you, there's nothing more satisfying than a surprising reveal and a shocking payoff. Unfortunately, there's a disastrous corollary to this tenet: A bad ending insults the reader and renders the plot that came before it hollow and insincere.
  • Pros: A couple of creepy moments
  • Cons: Story goes nowhere, Abysmal ending, Puzzles require no thought, just random clicking, Bare sound design fails to instill tension
