What does the world look like when mankind is extinct because it has atomically destroyed itself?
Dead and dead? Boring and gloomy?
Nothing. The animal world then really takes off. Crably cockroaches, ants trimmed for confrontation, tasty... maggots, bloated fish, playful flies and caring spiders. There's a lot of activity on the death strip. The survivors live their own insect lives.
That sounds quite strange, but this characteristic is the special thing about this humorous game. There's no talking. How would that work? We can't understand cockroaches. Still, you know what the story is about. The little cockroach friend of our gracious main character falls and disappears, so what do you have to do? Anything to find him and free him.
You can solve nicely designed puzzles like a good Point'n'Click Game should. Even if you don't know what to do, the player is given various hidden clues for solving these problems. The comic-like graphic style and the funny, varied music are super tuned to the funny, positive mood of the game.
I enjoyed the game a lot and I would play it again anytime. Why don't you give it a try?
