Postmortem: One Must Die (Extended Cut) reviews and comments

Translated by

Looks interesting at first Glance, but gets lost in infinite text dialogues. Tension or Motivation does not arise in this way. In addition, it is not visually appealing and the Resolution in Full Screen is a maximum of 1280x720 Pixels. Simply superfluous and not recommended.

A game of about ten minutes at the most. Even though you would do the game several times, it should not occupy you for more than an hour. For its price of €5, it is really not worth the shot. After you've finished it, you'll probably feel like you've played a few minute demo with a level and a few characters rather than a full game. Absolutely no reason to advise him.

You can play this game within 15 seconds. When you read all the Lyrics it takes just under half an hour. I know countless free to play flash games that have far, far more content and are also far more interesting to play. Requiring €5per for this "Game" is almost ne naughty. Mainly because the Manual Of my Washing Machine was free, more long-term entertainment and above all re-readable possession.

' Agent of Death ' is proclaimed in description ... While it sounds exciting, it isn't. It is merely a puzzle Mini-game with pixelated edges on Walls and Floors that simply go into the Black and overall a very small chest-like World, which consists of about 10 Rooms with about as many people. Also Negative is that the Characters are not set to music, only the Salutations. The Game consists mainly of many Texts in the Form of Dialogues and Texts that lie on/own in Dressers or The Like.

I have to say for the Price I expected considerably less from the Game. It's a small World where you move, yes, but it's very nicely filled. You encounter a few but deeply thoughtful Characters that you can get to know and influence. In The End, of course, you can play through the Game in a good 2 Seconds by just randomly killing a Person, but so you certainly have little Fun. Those who, on the other hand, try to have a specific influence can change many things. I have already plunged the small Country into a years-long, bloody civil War, but also a peaceful, bright Future. At the first Few times I also evoked Things without directly looking at how it came about. Then I found that out very interesting. If you are Interested in a small game with very beautiful, well thought-out Characters and beautiful Drawings, where it is a Matter of Influencing, this is the right thing to do. If you are looking for something promotional or a very fast Game, you are not to be discouraged from this Game. I only reinstalled the Game today and played a short Round, it's still Fun!
