Avatar-default 5 Revitalising the adventure genre
This game combines some excellent puzzles with great writing to produce a fantastic game. With witty one liners and homages to the old school Lucasarts games, it is the perfect game to restart the adventure genre.

Many of the recent adventure game titles I’ve played were stale, boring or just plain ugly. While the visuals in this are not fantastic, they do the job perfectly well and have a style all of their own (which is all you really need). This is one of the few recent adventure games I’ve happily played through and completed myself without giving up halfway through or referring to a walkthrough to get through some tedious pixel hunting.

An absolute gem, I heartily recommend this to any adventure game fans. They’ve now got a sequel (Time Gentlemen, Please!) for $5 which is as good and better. I’ve just bought it and cannot stop playing it.

Avatar-default 5 EPIC (and free!)
This game is magic in its purest form.

It is a fantastic point-and-click and adventure game and plays just like Sam & Max or Monkey Island; in fact, there are references to both of those game series in Ben There, Dan that.

Gameplay: Your typical point and click affair, very interesting puzzles

Graphics: A unique badly drawn style, the game actually makes fun of itself for being so horrendous.

Sound: Good sound effects, but music and voices are nearly non-existent.

Story: A very weird and twisting story, but they cuss and tad too much and use a lot of British-slang.

Overall, for a free game, you get alot!

I highly recommend it!

They also have a $5 sequel available.
