Tim Schafer, the creator of Monkey Island, is back. With the masterpiece “Broken Age” he shows that patience can pay off. It took more than two years to develop the game. The Point and Click Adventure was financed by the Startup Platform Kickstarter. A great deal of attention was paid to every detail – and it shows. The slightly high price is completely justified.

You have the option to go back and forth between individual game characters. The displayed world is very surreal and hand-drawn. The problem: The game characters are not all located in the same world – which definitely makes things interesting. The dialogs are very funny, the gameplay is original, and the soundtrack creates the perfect atmosphere. All puzzles are challenging, but definitely solvable. Part two is being worked on – unfortunately, it will take some time before it is release.

Conclusion:
“Broken Age“ is one of the best new releases in recent years. Everything is just right: Gameplay, details, graphics, and puzzle. It is an impressive game app that deserves many downloads.

Plus/Minus:
+ Fantastic gameplay
+ Wonderful animations
+ Well-conceived from beginning to end
+ Sequel is already in the works
