U-ROPA - A rather claustrophobic PC point and click adventure
I don't know about you, but when I find a free point and click adventure game to play that sounds like it could be rather creepy, I'm all for putting everything aside and downloading as soon as possible. So when I heard of the PC game' U-ROPA ' developed by Peder, in which your character SiegFried is trapped after a attack in an undersea vehicle deep down in the depths, I was just a little bit excited.
As soon as the game begins your character tells his little story and everything after that goes completely wrong, whatever has happened has caused destruction and traps you beneath a pile of debris. Now usually in an adventure game, it will tell you if you are doing something wrong, but in this one you are more than likely to die over and over again, until you get it right. Pretty much a Kings Quest and Space Quest experience.
Another thing that appealed to my sense of adventuring was the polished pixelated detail and the sound effects, such as the warning alarm alerting you that something has gone dangerously wrong. But there was a downside to this game, at least in my view. I can't stand code puzzles, and this game there are two of them pretty much as soon as you start the game. Maybe it was late and the answer was right in front of me, but alas I gave up without even leaving the room. Now I don't know about you but these types of puzzles should not be right at the start. It should be a learning experience and then to pull you into the story.
But hey, that's the only thing I didn't like and it wont stop me from trying again tomorrow, but if you want to download it and give me the code, go ahead, I wont stop you, it's a free for all! :)
