Review of 'Stifflip & Co.'

Rating:4 User: Alessandro Grussu

A peculiar icon-driven cartoon-styled adventure where you have to lead a pack of wacky characters in a South American country in the '20s in order to stop a mad scientist from making the fundamentals of the British empire - cricket games and the suchlike - collapse.

For non-British players most, if not all, of the humor is sadly unintelligible. Besides, the puzzles can sometimes be very subtle, even thin logically speaking - you sometimes have to resort to the old trial-and-error method, and this can easily lead to frustration.

However, the unusual presentation and the considerable depth of the game - it is split in two pretty long parts - make it a little gem, which should keep any adventure fun really busy.
