"What Makes You Tick?" is a traditional point'n'click adventure game created with Lassie engine. It was developed over one and a half years and finally released in May 2007.
eMTe : Too short and easy for my highly sophisticated and unreachable by developers tastes. Storyline makes sense, music together with perfectly matching and detailed graphics creates atmosphere, but game lacks meat and bones - length and puzzles. The latter are purely inventory-based, so it's only matter of time to figure out what to do. Dialogue text is too small imho. Ive found some plot illogicalities and one bug, but very strange - it helps with navigation.
I feel that story drives this game. It isnt easy enough to be called a clickfest, but offers too little to be called very good.
Sounds fair imo.
Chroelle : A some what short but good point and click adventure with lots of suttle humor, and lots of good animations. The traveller is a person which should not be ignored to talk to but afterwards he should be ignored...
Pater Alf : The game is quite good, with great graphics and clever puzzles.
Played it some time ago and can't remember why I didn't open a thread about it (most probably I just forgot). I think the only thing that annoyed me, was that there is no fullscreen mode.
eMTe : Nice adventure game with stylish graphics made with - surprise - not AGS, but Lassie engine.
