Story/ Gameplay

Willy Morgan and the Curse of Bone Town is a point-and-click adventure that has you looking for clues and solving puzzles as you try to figure out what lead to your dad’s disappearance 10 years ago. The dialogue is witty and some of these puzzles really do your head in! As you explore Bone Town you’ll meet a lot of characters, but is there really someone you can trust?

As you come across various objects you’ll get pieces of information, perhaps even a clue. I would have liked something like a notebook to keep track of all the clues you’ve uncovered, instead of just running around and not remembering what piece of information belongs where.

Sound, Graphics and Performance

The game features voice acting, and it really brings the characters to life while adding depth to the story. The graphics are an interesting style, mixing cutscenes that almost look like 3D clay models with a simpler 3D look. I’ve been playing the game in handheld mode and didn’t notice any problems performance wise.

Difficulty

It took me a while to figure out how all the clues that you gather actually fit together. I ended up just running around trying to collect as much stuff I could and try to figure out the puzzles afterwards. The puzzles themselves are sometimes pretty wack, but I enjoyed figuring them out.

Conclusion

This was a fun point-and-click game with interesting puzzles and fun characters. Having said that: a way to keep track of all the clues you’ve uncovered would be a welcome addition. This game will keep you entertained while you try to crack the puzzles.

Verdict

An interesting adventure that’ll keep you entertained trying to crack all the puzzles.

7/10
