Mr. Bill's Adventureland

  • Excerpt: A few weeks ago I found myself in need of a new adventure game.  I had wasted the entire summer playing a few new games and replaying all of the MYST games.  School had then started, and I hadn’t been able to plunk myself in front of my computer to simply play a game for a while.  My other problem was that I wasn’t too aware of what new games were available.

  • Conclusion: So that's basically it. If you enjoy your puzzle games and like to work your brain on challenges ranging from simple to break-the-desk frustrating, then Safecracker might just be for you. Whilst it doesn't have the depth or the plot characteristics of a Myst of 7th Guest, there is just about enough content within the adventure elements to keep it vaguely interesting; but lets face it, that was never intended to be the focal point.

Safecracker: The Ultimate Puzzle Adventure by gremlin

GameBoomers

  • Excerpt: What is it? Well, to start with, it’s a cool metallic DVD-style box, with a plastic window showing the CD inside, which looks like the dial of a bank safe. Yes, it’s SAFECRACKER: The Ultimate Puzzle Adventure . As adventure game packaging goes, this is one of the best I’ve ever seen. I’ve got to wonder though, if it caused Customs any second thoughts if they X-rayed it, given the recent (as in August 2006) security alerts in UK airports.

  • Excerpt: I remember when I first got a hold of the original Safecracker game back in 1998. At the time it was one of my favorite puzzle games, and my only regret was that it didn't last longer. I had high hopes for Scandinavian developer Daydream Software, and these were fairly well realized when Dreamcatcher helped them put out Traitors Gate about a year and a half later.

  • Conclusion: If you're considering SAFECRACKER: The Ultimate Puzzle Adventure, it's important to be clear about its dominant puzzle focus. While Kheops has given this game its usual stamp of high quality, it's a much different style of game than the studio's other titles, and anyone looking for a more traditional adventure might find their expectations disappointed. If you're an avid puzzle gamer, however, this game is definitely for you.

Safecracker: The Ultimate Puzzle Adventure

Adventure Classic Gaming
6 August 2006
  • Excerpt: Safecracker: The Ultimate Puzzle Adventure is an unpretentious title that aims to satisfy adventure game enthusiasts with an appetite for logic puzzle solving. Originally known simply as Safecracker, this 2006 release is not to be confused with the 1997 release of the same name from Daydream Software which, coincidentally, is also published by DreamCatcher Interactive—the parent label of The Adventure Company that publishes this title.

  • Conclusion: For adventurers who enjoy a game that is heavy in puzzles, Safecracker could be a truly entertaining offering. The initial screenshots released for the game promise a great deal of visual appeal. Players should be able to expect a richly detailed environment they can explore at a casual pace. Going through the large mansion and unlocking all the safes could make for a pleasant experience. Safecracker is currently scheduled for a Fall 2006 release.

Just when you thought it was safe...

GIN
18 June 1998
  • Excerpt: Safecracker is an intriguing collection of puzzles and clue searches, all intertwined together and layered prettier than a Dorothy Hammil haircut. In this first-person solve-em-up, you are left without any intro or other preparation and, in the spirit of games like 'Hacker', you are thrown into the game running (actually, in this case, standing in a phone booth with the phone ringing, but you get the idea).
