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. It is a shame that none of these possibilities are fully explored in Hoodwink, leaving you wanting for more of the game that can truly leverage its full potential. Hoodwink packs a wonderful introduction of its world in its limited narrative.

  • 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

  • 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. The controls are barely functional, the mini-games are pathetically limp and the graphics look like they’ve been smeared with a healthy dose of Vaseline.

  • Conclusion: Hogy mit lehetne még a fentieken kívül elmondani a játékról? Őszintén szólva semmi egyebet, hiszen hiába vannak végre nem számítógéppel, hanem rendes hangszerekkel előadott zenék az alkotás mögött, ha azok inkább az ötvenes éveket, semmint a futurisztikus jövőt juttatják eszünkbe. Bevallom őszintén és férfiasan, hogy nagy reményeket fűztem a Hoodwinkhez, főleg azért, mert imádom a maláj metal zenét, a maláj underground színteret, így gondoltam, hogy játékaik esetében is...
  • Pros: abból sajnos nem sok vanmaláj fejlesztésérdekes zenékkülönleges világ
  • Cons: csúnya küllemborzasztó irányításérthetetlen történet

Hoodwink

Adventure-Treff
24 July 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. Und selbst wenn: Hätte ich nicht diesen Test schreiben müssen, wäre das Spiel spätestens nach einer halben Stunde vom Rechner geflogen.
  • Pros: Musik von Leon Willet, Gute englische Sprachausgabe, Humor, Hässliche, undetaillierte Grafik, Praktisch nicht vorhandene Rätsel, Nervige Minispiele, Lange Laufwege, Ladezeiten, Technische Mängel
