The Pit And The Pendulum reviews and comments

Rarely can you find a game that only has negative reviews. And this is also the case when they are fully deserved. I do not remember how I had this game at all-probably it was some coupon with a discount of 99%. A Complete failure, especially considering that I did not know at the time that the games you do not like can be issued a refund. With a very large stretch here you can find a plus in the form of the idea to make a game by Edgar Poe. In fact, that's all. The Graphics are not as bad as anything else, but the stars from the sky are missing. Its level would be satisfactory if the gameplay itself was interesting. But it is not. Apparently, at some point the razslaves realized that the game did not cause a stir, but instead of making it better, they... Added cards. And This is the case when it did not go to the game on the benefits-to put them all, will have to play the game 2-3 times, for one passage all the cards do not fall. Usually I try to highlight the positive side, even if I did not like the game, because I do not want to offend the creator, he tried. But It's really hard here. I sincerely hope that it is just someone's student work, laughter for the sake of poured on the steam. That would explain something. For the first time and, hopefully, for the last time I say: This game should not be bought, even if it is a huge discount. Most free games on the steam are better than this. This is a classic "bottom measurement": I'm not likely to play something as bad.

"The Well and the Pendulum". The Pit And The Pendulum – story about a prisoner who survived the torture and torment of the Inquisition in a Spanish prison. History fully retells the story "Well and the Pendulum." The Storyline tells us about a man who was sentenced to death and imprisoned in a Spanish prison. Waking up, the protagonist notices that it is in the pitch darkness, it is surrounded by four walls, and in the center of the room is a well. On the walls are seen terrible images, and the protagonist with each subsequent minute begins to lose his sanity. The Gameplay resembles a typical Point and Click and that's too loudly said. Several times We will be able to interact with objects, play a mini-game, bypass the dust chamber, look into the well and even throw a pebble to check how bad it is. But basically, throughout the game, you are fed dialogues story-"Well and the Pendulum." This is not bad, because the plot is important, but, heck, the gameplay is not as much as I would like. The Walkthrough depends on your wits, but basically the walkthrough takes about 30 minutes. The team of developers is certainly a talented artist who was perfectly able to describe the main character, location, as well as colorful main menu. I Liked the way the walls of a dusty camera are seen images of all kinds of evil. With The soundtrack is not all so unambiguous, yes monotonous melody conveys the total glow of this tremor, which occurs with the main character, but we are deprived of high-quality sounds in other areas, for example, we do not hear the quality of the rustle, Squeos, groan, and As the protagonist drinks from the jug. The store page has a record of "This product does not support your language. Please read the list of supported languages before purchasing. " This is a mistake – Russian Language, is in the game settings. The Pit And The Pendulum supports many screen resolutions and is also run full screen. According to the results: If you have not read the story-"Well and Pendulum", the plot you can catch. Good level design and character costumes. Very Little Gameplay-One, two and Obchelsya. If you are a fan of interesting stories and quests, you should pay attention to this project. More of our reviews on the curator page of the Special Games Club
