Showing 1-10 of 48
Runaway is a great adventure game, rivalling even the best of the genre.
27 March 2010
Excerpt: The classic point 'n' click adventure genre has recently seen a resurgence of interest with the release of the Tales of Monkey Island series, the Sam and Max episodic series and the special edition re-releases of the original Monkey Island titles.
Summary: I couldn't stop playing this game! It really is one of the most immersive adventure game experiences I've had (better even than most Lucasarts products!). You really want to find out what happens and the twist at the end is quite shocking, the rug is really pulled from under the player's feet.
Summary: Runaway is a varied, fun, cartoonish adventure game that will take you through several very different environments. It may be a little confusing at times, and you will find yourself picking up items that could be described as trash for no apparent reasons, until you finally understand why; or not.
Summary: Since the days of Zork and Broken Sword I've been looking for an engrossing, satisfying point and click, and haven't got close. This brought me one step nearer. Some of the puzzles are a tad easy, and so they compensate by doing silly things like not letting you examine an item on the first look...
Excerpt: Runaway a Road Adventure starts of with Brian getting ready to move home and get prepared for university. In the run up to this there are little problems which end up as big problems unless you can solves them. There are clues scattered all over the place and in the most unlikely of places.
Conclusion: Difficult to write a review about this game...the story is very nice and the graphics and sounds too, but the main downside is that the interface is not as good as the rest, so you can miss something just because this stupid pointer was developed in this way.
Summary: This game is reminiscent of the Monkey Island series by Lucas Arts which is not a bad thing at all. The animation is great and the characters have tons of personality. Game play is pretty fun, I got a little drifty due to lack of challenge. The problem solving is not based on reality logic.
Summary: If you like an unrushed adventure games and time to watch short movies--this is the game. The graphics are fairly good and does have some humor at tmes. Good game support which I feel is important.
