    This game looks to be a point and click adventure game. Having grown up in the late 80's and early 90's, I miss these style of games so much. I was just wondering if anybody had played this and if it was any good.

    I recently played the Back to the Future game, and while it was fun, it was far too short and watered down. I actually had to turn off the dang hints because it kept offering them to me. Where is the challenge in these games!

    I remember it took YEARS to beat King's Quest 3. I beat the Back to the Future game in about an hour and a half with zero help. This is a genre I truly miss.

    I played the Windows demo version and really enjoyed it. It is a point and click adventure similar to the Monkey Island series and Grim Fandango. I thought the first level was extremely easy though, but seeing as it is the first level of a demo, I'm sure the difficulty increases.

    Try out the free demo on Windows if you can. If not, I'd say go for it. It's not as intricate or confusing as Myst, but brought back fond memories of Guybrush Threepwood for myself :)

    If you don't mind running Windows you should check out Lost Horizon – some interesting puzzles in that one.

    There's a Mac demo on the official site. I was unimpressed - I think I winced throughout. Bad dialogue, some flawed puzzle logic, and no voice acting (which, given how bad the dialogue was, might not be such a horrible omission).

    For $20, you're better off getting a fistful of classic adventure games or waiting for a Telltale sale.
