A Walk in the Dark

Strategy Informer
13 December 2013
  • Conclusion: A Walk in the Dark may pull from its predecessors’ example, but at no point does it attempt to rip them off. For less than a fiver, it’s a bargain, if for nothing else but to experience the bizarre feeling of absolute frustration and absolute relaxation in tandem, courtesy of well-structured, taxing level design and Cody Cook’s beautiful soundtrack.

The Dark Eye: Memoria

Destructoid
18 September 2013
  • Summary: Daedalic Entertainment, prolific crafter of many a point-and-click adventure, has returned to the world of Aventuria, continuing the yarn spun in last year's Chains of Satinav , a gorgeous, but slightly uneven game with that didn't quite live up to its potential. So we're in sequel territory, but don't fret if you've not played Chains of Satinav as this second outing, Memoria , can stand on its own, and when it references its predecessor it does so without demanding much...

  • Conclusion: Never-quite-stellar puzzling fare punctured by erratic physics and makework. The scenery is nice, though.

  • Conclusion: In the end, Dark is an incredibly hard game to judge. While it may be rough around the edges, Dark is the kind of game that has heart. Yes, the animations, voice-acting and checkpoints could all use a massive overhaul but I found myself enjoying its brand of stealth. I would love to see the good folks at RealmForge try their hand at a smaller game, but what they’ve built is a fun homage to older stealth games.

Expert Review

Original-Gamer
10 July 2013
  • Conclusion: Before the release of the critically acclaimed Portal, puzzle games had more or less stagnated. The brilliant ideas of puzzle/adventure games from the past had disappeared completely and been replaced with mindless shooter after mindless shooter. It wasn’t until the release of Portal that game developers realized they could make unique puzzle games that still appeal to modern gamers.

Magrunner: Dark Pulse

IGN
25 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Magrunner isn’t as exciting as some of the games to borrow from Portal’s song sheet, like the weird and wonderful Antichamber. It’s one of the stronger puzzle games, though, with a clever new mechanic and design that’s both interesting and adept at luring you into exploring its subtleties.
  • Pros: Flexible puzzle mechanic, Real challenges
  • Cons: Boring storyline, Underbaked horror, Needs more Portal Gun

  • Summary: Portal meets Cthulhu in Magrunner: Dark Pulse.

Secrets of the Dark: Mystery of the Ancestral Estate

Gamezebo
26 March 2013
  • Summary: Travel to a Mediterranean island to help an heiress haunted by the deeds of her ancestors.
  • Pros: Tight design (post-intro). Cool transformation effects. Sparse but surprisingly challenging hidden object sequences.
  • Cons: Narrative chock-full of cliches. Awkward intro. Lackluster bonus chapter and extras.
