The award-winning debut adventure game from the creators of The Whispered World and Deponia now on the iPad. Accompany young Edna and her talking stuffed bunny Harvey on a whacky attempt to escape from her padded cell. Experience a bizarre journey all across the insane asylum and far beyond its brick walls.

At the beginning, young Edna wakes up in the padded cell of an insane asylum with no memory of her past. She doesn’t have the slightest idea how she wound up there, but one thing is for sure, she wants out! After all, she feels perfectly sane – and her talking stuffed bunny Harvey agrees completely. Together, they attempt an escape and, in doing so, meet their extremely bizarre fellow patients – from the man in the bee costume to the pseudo-Siamese twins Hoti and Moti. But Dr. Marcel, head of the asylum, will stop at nothing to keep Edna from escaping. What does he have planned for her? And why was her memory erased? Gradually, Edna regains her memory of the time before her detention in her cell…

Fun little adventure, though some parts seem walkthrough-only

This is a classic adventure game in every respect, very long and well acted with a lot to explore and do, with great art to round it out. The biggest downside is that it's not very fair at all, lots of hair-pulling moments, but it's high quality, and while it does crash from time to time, the autosave always puts you right back where you left off, and I didn't run into any constant problems. It's chock-full of silly lines and sillier achievements, and basically 99% of every possible action is fully voice-acted by the main characters. There's hours of dialogue here! Unfortunately, after a while I started getting tired of Edna & Harvey's extremely dorky jokes, given how much there is to do and how long the game is.

Like I said, you're in for lots of hair-pulling for puzzles that hardly make any sense. There are lots of fun little digs at classic adventure games and tropes, but nearly every other puzzle is a stumper, making this a game that falls squarely into the same tropes.

I still look forward to the next games, because I had fun despite it all.

What a Trip...

What a trip...as we used to say in the '60s. Anyway, this game is one of the very best iPad Point & Click game ports I've played and that's saying a lot. It's one of the finest in almost every way, with one caveat (mentioned at the end of this review), including its story, brilliantly funny dialogue, charming graphics, superb voice acting, and many creative, tough, and wacky problems to solve. This is one of just a few out of hundreds of games where I would award nine out of ten (not five) stars if I could. I won't lavish praise beyond this because, if you believe me, you will want to try it for yourself if you love Point & Click Adventures - You won't regret it!

Okay, the caveat is that you will most likely need to use an online walkthrough at least several times during the game since excellent wackiness doesn't always invite intuitiveness into the picture ;-) The game's lack of a good hint system is why I did not fantasize about giving it ten (instead of nine) stars. Other reviewers have discussed this in detail, so, 'nuff said.

Huge bug- can not get past the first scene anymore.

I have a feeling that the developers updated the game recently to allow easier access to inventory items. Unfortunately, you can not progress past the first chapter - the padded room. It only allows one slash per pad. As a result, you can not exit the room. This is literally the first action of the game beyond the initial prologue. I double checked with a walk through. The inventory appeared different - hence my thoughts that the game has been updated.
I am always hesitant to pay upfront for a game. I always appreciate a developer offering a couple of chapters for free so the player can see if the game suits their taste. I am more than willing to pay for a game that I like. I always jump on board to buy every game that is then released by that developer in the same genre. I will stay away from developers that peddle a flawed product. This was a waste of money. I fear that future products will be the same.
