An other-worldly black-and-white adventure game about life, death and being sarcastic.
Congratulations. You're a ghoul whose just won a fish. Now comes the question - what to do with it? It's alive. When you spend your time in an after-life amusement park, things can get a bit tricky when you try to figure out what "alive" is.
That's the premise behind this adventure game and it just gets stranger. From demon/angel relationships, to a soul in a lamppost, a three-headed invisible monster and the meaning of life, you'll explore this bizarre land and hopefully take care of that fish named Spooks.
The good things about this game are: Sarcasm, humour, the swirly additions to the graphics (apparently made in MS Paint) and the girl as a hero. The negative things are: Its enjoyable length is hampered by sometimes awkward tasks and leaps of logic (the clues can be quite cryptic at times). Other than having to click again in the same location, or close to it, for a result, the game is very enjoyable.
Like I said, it's not excessively long - its just the right length to be puzzling, but satisfying in telling its story. The story is very visual and can be quite enjoyable. Recommended for adventure fans with a bit of a twisted sense of humour.
Spooks its a classic adventure game with a very peculiar atmosphere. Maybe we have played tons of games like this, but the story its so intriguing and misterious that makes the experience very enjoyable. Maybe its a bit depressing, but probably thats the point of the "tale".
The only bad points that I found are the length -its short, very short...but, like other adventures, it depends on your solving-puzzles abilities- and the somewhat arbitrary pixel-hunting of some of the puzzles. But those are minimal errors...the whole picture shines like a "lamp-spirit" ;)
