Hoodwink

Adventure Classic Gaming
13 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Hoodwink is a prelude to what is possibly an amazing adventure game. It is a charming, albeit simple, puzzler that offers an intriguing future world rife with characters, stories, and possibilities.

  • Conclusion: Hoodwink is true to its title, since it’s barely a game. The closest thing to a game in it are the agonising ‘mini-games’ based around specific types and quantities of clicking through an interface that actively disregards mouse use .

  • Summary: I was threatening a game. I was no longer sitting; instead, I was standing and pointing at my monitor accusingly. I sat back down, feeling just the right amount of embarrassment for shouting at an adventure game when nobody is around to see. Hoodwink is an appropriately named adventure game.

Hoodwink may look pretty, but beneath its lustrous sheen is a short, frustrating, illogical mess that ends before it has a chance to get going.

  • Summary: UK REVIEW--It's important not to make assumptions. Take point-and-click adventure Hoodwink, for instance. Its lovely art style invites you into the game with open arms. There's a real, immediate charm to its world, which is populated by some thoroughly appealing characters and environments.
  • Pros: Stylish visuals make for a sophisticated-looking world, Voice acting is charming
  • Cons: Illogical puzzles, Awkward level design and movement, More like a demo than a full game, Poor implementation of hints and objectives, Very limited game world

  • Conclusion: When Michael finally approaches Francesca, something goes horribly wrong, forcing him to escape from a shady, masked government official and get himself to a medical doctor. Unfortunately, the game ends quite suddenly and unexpectedly in the middle of your quest.

Hoodwink Review

Gamezebo
11 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Someone took this game out of the oven before it was done, which is a shame because it had potential. Hoodwink is a point and click adventure that tells the story of a professional thief — or, as he calls himself, an acquisitions expert — who steals a diamond ring in order to propose to his bride to...
  • Pros: Good animation. Pretty graphics. Solid voice acting. Decent story.
  • Cons: Glitchy. Lack of save system. Lack of sound effects. Annoying minigames. Feels rushed and unpolished.

GAME REVIEW – Hoodwink (PC)

Alternative Magazine Online
24 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Adventure gamers will desperately want to like Hoodwink – the story, setting and characters certainly have potential – but as a game, it unfortunately only succeeds at crashing and burning.

Adventure-Treff
7 November 2012
  • Summary: "Nach The Second Guest ist Hoodwink das zweite Spiel dieses Jahr, bei dem ich wahrscheinlich nie die Auflösung der Geschichte erleben darf – nach dem, was mir in dieser Episode geboten wurde, kann ich mir nicht vorstellen, dass da noch ein weiterer Teil erscheinen wird.
  • Pros: Musik von Leon Willet, Gute englische Sprachausgabe, Humor, Hässliche, undetaillierte Grafik, Praktisch nicht vorhandene Rätsel, Nervige Minispiele, Lange Laufwege, Ladezeiten, Technische Mängel

3 November 2012
  • Excerpt: A sors úgy hozta, hogy e hónapban két kalandjátékot is tesztelhettem. Az egyik pixelgrafikával, remek sztorival, átgondolt mechanizmussal lopta be magát a szívembe (ez volt a ), a másikról mindennek ellenkezőjét mondhatom el: a látvány korszerű, más azonban...
  • Pros: Stílusos grafika és cyberpunk világ film noire beütéssel, kellemes háttérzenével, sőt még pár poénon is lehet nevetni.
  • Cons: A kihívást csak az elbaltázott mechanizmus, a hosszú töltögetés és a rossz irányítás jelenti, no meg pár idegesítő minijáték.
