Arrrrgggghhhh... I like this game. I like the way it doesn't continually display text that tells the player obvious things like "You picked up the crowbar" (seems there's always a crowbar in point and click games...) There is quite a nice bit of humour in it as well, if you look for it. The graphics and sound effects are quite nice, and the game play is enjoyable if somewhat tricky at times. The hints reveal just enough. All the earmarks of at least a four star game. UNTIL you get to the Atari game! I can't win it and I'm sick of it! That I know of, there is no way to skip it. So, a good game if you love old Atari games... If anyone knows how to get past this point, PLEASE HELP!!!!
Twas a dark and storm night, with no lights or wifi. My trusty tablet was fully charged, so what better night to play a game from beginning to end than this? Tipping Point proved to be a fun way to pass an otherwise boring evening. I was able to complete the game in one sitting over the course of about 5 hours, with copious help from the hint machine. The game's sci-fi storyline is a little goofy but engaging enough to hold my attention and the graphics, while not “widescreen HD“ in quality (it was slightly grainy and in a 4:3 aspect ratio, leaving black bars on either side of my tablet's 10.1" screen) images and animations were pretty and well detailed.
Like most games of this genre, it involves exploring lots of different "scenes" and finding things you can either pick up and use later or otherwise manipulate to create forward progress in the story. Many games like this use subtle highlighting to make finding some objects easier. This one does for some items but not for others, meaning it can frustrating if you're not good at thinking outside conventional norms and looking for things that blend seamlessly into the background art. Luckily the game has a generous help engine, with multiple hints progressing from a gentle nudge to outright puzzle solutions, available in delayed increments. I don't feel embarrassed to say I used this a lot, as some puzzles were just impossible for me to figure out on my own.
Overall, it's a great way to pass an evening (or two). You probably will chuckle at some of the goofy narration and plot lines, especially towards the end, but the imagery, despite not being super-sharp, is still beautiful to look at. And the puzzles range from super simple to fairly complex, which should engage the mind for hours, if for no other reason than to see what the programmers thought of next.
I love puzzle adventures. I don't mind them being hard. If necessary, I'll muddle around until I figure it out. (I loved the Forever Lost series from Glitch Games and am eagerly awaiting the next episode. Ditto The Haunt III) This one had no hidden objects - yay! But I found myself using hint after hint because it just didn't make sense to me. After I used a hint, I often thought that it was a good thing I did because I would never have done what needs to be done otherwise. Maybe it was the fact that the inventory wasn't labeled and I sometimes misunderstood what I had (like the shard of glass). Maybe I'm just losing it. I don't know. But it almost became funny because so much of this game was just not intuitive to me. After I went through an entire hint sequence and still couldn't get the inventory object to do what the hint said it should, no matter where I placed it, I just decided that life is too short to waste on games like this when there are better games to be played.
Impressive graphics and audio put this game in a class by itself! The clues in the game are very subtle and thank heavens for the hints to get you going. Once you use a few you will begin to see the flow of the game and how to play. Pick up items that you find and they will be saved for you on the bottom of the screen.
You work your way through each screen of the game by solving puzzles and finding clues. There are hints that you can use but they are on a timer so you just can't breeze through the game using the hints. The game is an adventure and as you are drawn into it you have to find out how to escape and move through the level you are on to the next one. There is no clock you so can work at your own pace. Thank heavens as I find the puzzles difficult.
I played the game on a 10.1 inch Android tablet and since you are looking for detail clues in the screens I found that the larger screen was a benefit to playing the app. The graphics are spectacular and include animation. The sound effects and music are perfectly done. It is an impressive programming and graphics job done by the creators. I found the puzzle part of the game more difficult than normal. I hate using hints but in this game I have had to use them to move along in the adventure.
Overall I find the game to be fun and challenging. It can be frustrating but that is due to my own incompetence in playing the game. The clues are abstract but they eventually guide you to the right path but they don't just make it real easy. You have to think through every step of the game.
This is a large game at 169 MB in size that will take longer to download. Even though the game is large it nicely installed itself onto my SD card and not into my internal memory. Overall it took about 8 minutes to download and install it. I have a fast WIFI and you just have to be patient. The game is rated "guidance suggested" so is may not be good for younger children though so far I have not seen any issues that I would consider not suitable for children.
The game does open up the WIFI network for use and it can verify your Google play license or Amazon license. The app contains no malware, adware or invasive permissions and it is safe to download. I played the game with the WIFI off and it worked fine.
PS, I loved seeing the Atari 800 in one of the screen's graphics. I still have several in a closet from over 30 years ago and they still work. LOL
Really fun and addictive. People who have given this game bad reviews due to not understanding, this isn't your sort of game. Really takes time to think and work out puzzles, retrace steps and think outside the box. Only downside is it's quite a short game.
Completed in two days and I must say it hasnt been easy. I think I used the hint option 2 or 3 times. Its not like most games 100 floors ect its more intense and you have to use your brain. I was gutted to of completed it to be honest thought there would of been more than 5 chapters. Was great while it lasted it cured my boredom for two evenings whilst other half was on the play station.
