Fantastic game, iffy controls

I've had the pc version of the game for some time now but I've never been able to properly play it because it would invariably crash once I finished chapter 2 (although I did manage to get to chapter 3 once) but now I'll hopefully have the chance to play the game in its entirety thanks to dotemu.

Unfortunately a problem that both the original and the port have is that the controls aren't nearly as good as they could be. In the original you would guid max along with your cursor rather than clicking a location and having him walk there. That coupled with his slow walking speed made things very tedious. This port has the same issues PLUS some wonky touch controls. The game is very slow paced so it won't effect your ability to play it but it will occasionally be a bother

A David Lynch inspired video game gem....

Ok, so maybe not directly. But if you enjoyed Lost Highway and Twin Peaks and kept watching despite not always knowing what was going on you’ll love Sanitarium. Actually, that could even be said of Lost as well. Anyway,that kind of sets up the premise that you won’t always understand if it’s reality or a dream world but that makes it pretty fun to play as well. And like the other reviewer said it’s a pretty intense mind-bender. Not gory at all but some great psychological chapters that will keep you interested even as you make some loose connections with what a certain chapter entails. It’s nice to see a classic suspenseful point and click such as this one. Now if they can just port Phantasmagoria so I don’t have to find all my disks to play it again. :)

Loved it but...

... I love adventure POC games but don't have a PC. This game really fun, great story, I absolutely love games with different themes for different levels and how the story tied together. Voice acting was very good. However I was playing on a small iPhone 5s and the 'trigger points' for so many things just got lost in the densely detailed environment. Also, yes please give a basic item tutorial, and consider have a 'description' for each item when clicked on, or maybe update the item menu. And the reaction time between clicking on areas and then getting recognized was really aggravating I almost deleted game.

Thanks for a good game I think for small screens this is not a good choice though.
