Enter the surreal, disturbing, and ridiculous world of the Knobbly Crook in the first chapter of this old-school point and click adventure. O'Sirus the Snip is a simple paper farmer driven to epic adventure by a spooky face with a spookier voice. He will ultimately seek to become a Knobbcrookian royal guard–a Guffaloon. Stories of their heroic battles against the fearsome Bogold empire echo throughout the Crook. Unfortunately, they’re not currently recruiting simple paper farmers. He’s going to have to use every dirty trick in his book to cheat his way to the top and that means YOU will need to understand the key elements of the Knobbly Crook - Rock, Paper, and Scissors. Creatures of stone crush the metallic Knobbcrookians. The Knobbcrookians herd and farm paper animals. Fearsome stone giants fear tiny paper animals.

In the first chapter, The Horse You Sailed In On, O'Sirus finds himself on trial for all the crimes you have not yet committed. Retell his nonsensical story as his journey begins, finding himself a stowaway on a ship that is half horse, half boat, and half whale. Every moment that passes takes you further from your goal--the Knobbly Crook. It's up to you to torment the Drafthorse's unsuspecting crew in an attempt to alter their course.

The Knobbly Crook will be released in several chapters, all of them completely free. No ads, no tricks.

So this is a "must have" for Point ' n ' click fans! The Game is incredibly good for a Free game and you can't go wrong! From the Look of the Game to the Story, the Game is unique. I love the (but relatively special) Humor that the game brings with it and the Way you solve the individual Puzzles, The Game can definitely entertain you in its 2-3 Hours of play. The Work that has been put into the fictional Language here is also enormous, since the Language varies from Character to Character and even like the individually, so-called "Knobbcrookians" with each other Is explained to communicate with each other. I can only recommend any To support the Developer or wine at most their Website for Visits (http://www.gnarledscar.com/)

Graphic Adventure born of a dust between David Cronenberg and Tim Burton (but without Johnny Deep). During The story, we'll handle a weird character, in a weird world, full of weird people, but it's not a hipster pub, careful. The case that everything has a humorous background a bit strange, and this is the first chapter of the game. I Imagine that the following will have to pay, as the "reversion", but at least this is free. The interface is typical graphic adventure of the 90, and the story is not bad. Repeating the above, the first thing you think is that history does not make the slightest sense. It Seems that they have put "strange things" to the Tuntún and that the players do Oh... Total, as it is free, we were not going to complain much, right? Basically It's a hook for you to chop and when you know it, you've already bought the following chapters. Is it Worth it? Well, according to the price they have, like everything. If They are like this first chapter, should be worth 3 ~ 4 euros (i at least, I will not pay more), since the duration is short. The music is fine. I loved it. The scenarios are, above all, curious, although I find them confusing. At first glance, you do not know many times where you can walk and where not, but it is arranged with a few clicks walking around. Well, there's not much more to tell. It's Worth it because it's original and free. Is It Too short? Yes. Up to the right, during the game, there is a counter from 0 to 300, which advances from 10 to 10 each time you do some action that advances the plot. I mean, in this first chapter you only have to do 30 shares in total. I'm "I'm from letters", what do you mean, 30 shares? Yes, 300/10 = 30. 30 shares. Why do you divide by 10? Because the action increases from 10 in... Look, listen to me, it's only 30 shares in this chapter.
