Darkestville has become a really nice point and click adventure. If you are looking for a funny point and click, you can recommend Darkestville Castle. br>
The negative things:
What was really missing the most for me, then there were dialog... lines when trying it out. If something doesn't work, then the same lines are always used, which takes the desire to try out a bit and the puzzles sometimes have some abstract solutions.
That's a pity, because you should at least shake everything, because there are always items that you wouldn't try to take at first sight.
Story consists of three files and is sufficient as a hanger. I liked the idea of making the supposed evil demon the main character. I liked the graphic style. Hotspot help ensures that nothing is overlooked in an emergency. Humor is a matter of taste anyway. Not huge roar to me, but a lot to smile about. br>
Conclusion: I had my fun with the game. I would recommend it to anyone who wants more point and click food. Because of some riddles I wouldn't recommend it to everyone. Besides, it probably won't stay in my mind like a 'paradigm' for a long time, because the very special ideas and moments are missing here.
