The Big Secret of a Small Town reviews and comments

Translated by

Pointless quests, gruesome explanations, occasionally you don't even know how to go any further and at the end the final pure luck whether you can conclude the game or not. Story was quite ok, at rest the developer should get urgently post-training needs. Not recommended as partly fruitful.

The Big Secret of a Small Town is a puzzle and Adventure game where you have to go by pressing the screen to find things to use and solve the puzzles. One of the things he stands out for is his graphics and his music. The puzzles are quite logical (most), not like other graphic adventures in which you have to break your brains. You Get into the skin of a detective who must help rescue the mayor, who has been kidnapped. As you go Through the story, there are little video scenes behind the puzzles, which show a pretty original story. The game is pretty short, no more than 4 hours, depending on the time you take. Most screens are simple although some things are well hidden. The Game I would recommend especially for the kids, although anyone can enjoy it, but to another type of audience maybe I would recommend looking for other things.

I had interrupted the Game more often in between because I didn't get any further and therefore lost the Desire of the Game. After a long Break I got it back on Tackle and am now (finally) through. It's not the best Point & Click game I'd ever played, but still I wouldn't rate it negatively and neutral doesn't go ... Cons:-The Story is ... "Nice," but really exciting or otherwise captivating, I didn't find her again. -Some Puzzles were too sheer for me, or the Solution was not always so comprehensible to me (those who play such games more often may see it differently)-The Hints for Finding Solutions were usually not helpful at all-in Window mode, the Window was already very small. It was not possible for me to adjust the Size of the Window. Pros: + I really liked the Graphics, the Pictures and Scenes are beautifully drawn with great Attention to Detail. + Overall, I found the Puzzles and Puzzles offered in the Game (despite my negative Criticism, see above) very interesting and entertaining (if I could solve them myself after a reasonable Time) + The Possibility to "skip" some of the puzzle/puzzles I thought it was good. You don't have to use it, but it calms down when there is such a thing. + The Inventory and items in it are nicely clear + The Game control is simple, just as I expect from a classic Point & Click game to conclude: Even if I did not rate the Game negatively, I would recommend it – at the regular Price – not. Anyone who thinks he might be interested in this Game should wait for a Sale.
