One of the best I've ever seen.

I'm not good at this, Common Sense Media

  • Summary: This is, simply put, an amazing game. Wadjet eye hits all the right notes, the retro style graphics are spot on. It has a story that keeps you guessing until the very end, the puzzles are just the right amount of hard, and all the controls are clearly explained in the first chapter. 6/5 stars.

  • Summary: I didn't expect much from this game and it completely blew me away. I didn't think I could play an old school adventure game and enjoy it as much as I used to enjoy the old Sierra and Lucasarts games I grew up on. Boy was I wrong!

  • Summary: I just don't know if I've played a better game as far as point and click adventures go. Decent puzzles, a good story, and enough options to warrant another playthrough. I will be anxiously anticipating anything Josh puts out in the future.

  • Summary: Gemini Rue takes us back to the golden days of '90's point-and-click adventure games with an interesting science fiction story that could easily make it on the silver screen. Although the graphics and gameplay are reminiscent of titles such as Beneath a Steel Sky, it adds a few gimmicks to the genre...

  • Summary: Just finished my first play through and loved this game, its a solid point and click adventure game that doesn't resort to convoluted solutions and doesn't feel like its forcing you to solve a puzzle the games way. On top of the mechanics though is an excellent story.

  • Summary: WOW. This game did not disappoint. When I first saw the screen shots I was surprised to see the game so pixelated, like the games of old, thinking that a new game with such bad graphics cant be good. But it was only $10 so I got it, and boy was I wrong!

  • Summary: Wow. I have just finished this, short at 6 hours playing time but the it was a page turner. The plot was excellent and had philosophical/metaphysical connotations that left me churning it over for a few minutes during the credits. the game itself was well written with few bugs (if any).

  • Summary: Gemini Rue is one part retro graphics, one part engrossing adventure game, and all fun. I agree with other reviewers who point out the graphics make solving some puzzles challenging, due to the limited number of pixels displayed.

  • Summary: A great noir science fiction point & click adventure in the spirit of best adventures of old from the golden era of adventure games. It sucked me right in, a true gem.

  • Summary: The first videogame I ever played was the Curse of Monkey Island, and I've been playing every sort of game ever since - I'm no stranger to point-n-click adventure games. Gemini Rue was possibly one of the very best point and clicks I've played. Period.
