Editorial Reviews

Adventure Classic Gaming

There are far too many positive aspects of this game to be listed. In addition to the superb graphics and sounds, the game's humor is abundant and very funny. The game space is quite large and all of the locations are worth visiting beyond what you may need to do with the puzzles. The use of magic, while building on the previous titles, offers even greater opportunity for experimentation with lots of results possible from all sorts of different spells. The puzzles, which are numerous in this game, are all well thought out. Though differing greatly in style and difficulty from its predecessors, these puzzles still require fairly creative solutions that test your common sense. None of them, on the other hand, require huge leaps of logic or other unfair tactics. The game maintains its atmosphere completely throughout. It never loses its tone or strays away from the formula that has worked so well previously for this series. The only negative aspect of this game is the endgame sequence which can be mildly frustrating. There is one glaring (but not game altering) typographical error. The most disappointing part about the game or the series, though, is that there is no sequel!

The graphics, music and sound effects are of the same quality as those seen in Gateway. As you would expect from a beachside setting there is a lot a bare flesh on view but, even in 'Naughty' mode, there is no complete nudity. [...] I felt that this third game was the most difficult in the series so far with a lot of excellent puzzles and a great ending.

I couldn't find an easy way to search for this, so I figured I'd ask the hivemind: What games use graphics and/or sound to enhance the gameplay, similar to City of Secrets and Necrotic Drift?

Games with maps... by Xionix
I started playing Counterfeit Monkey, and I notice a good map is a way for us newbies to get into the game more easy. And I hate to draw so, are any other games that got a in-game map? It can be any genre.
