Loved it!

I love all of the 80’s movie references. Those are the movies I grew up on. The game was great, as usual, as ALL games made by Glitch Games are fantastic. The puzzles were good, the artwork was different, but I loved it. And of course, the gameplay was excellent. Much love to Graham, the developer, I sat back in the shadows while beta testing Veritas but I see that you are such a great developer and a hard worker. This was the only game I hadn’t played yet so I got it today, finished in a few hours, and did it in one sitting. I’m a big fan of Glitch Games and I’m just waiting for the next pack to be released in Great Escapes. That’s another fun one. If you are wondering if you should get this game, YES, and while you’re at it, get ALL the Glitch games, they are all one of a kind FUN and worth every penny.

For those with a bit of character.....

While not the first game I played by glitch, it is the game that made me realize what I was “up against,” and placed the developers at the top of my list. The puzzles push. You have to focus and think about what the next goal is, and while is can be frustrating, those that appreciate challenges will not balk at the idea. The puns and puzzles are awesome, giving one an idea of the minds behind the creation. It is a solid use of time!

Not as good to me as the others

Got bored with it about 2/3 thru. The inventory is gigantic with several useless items. Some of the puzzles made literally no sense, and eventually I resorted to hints out of boredom. Rarely needed hints before, so I'm glad this game provided them because I didn't feel as compelled to brainstorm like in other titles. I would rate this as my least favorite of the Glitch games, and seems overall not as well though-out as the others. Still good, though. I am a gen x-er and the puns were fun. Had to turn the sound up at the end because I nearly expected to hear Simple Minds playing in the background.
