Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink (Full)
By: Artifex Mundi
Rating: All Ages
Price: $4.99

Dr. Ambrose Ink and his clockwork falcon, Matthew, are attempting to uncover the source for a series of catastrophic earthquakes and their search leads them to Hochwald Castle, the home of the Barber family. As Agent Evangeline Glass, you arrive to assist him in his research to discover he’s vanished!

So this is basically a puzzle game with an adventure storyline. It’s a steampunk themed adventure with gorgeous graphics and it’s relatively straightforward in terms of gameplay. Examples of puzzles include repairing the clockwork falcon and navigating through a dirigible without being caught.

I believe this was a game I obtained in a free promo on Amazon’s Kindle Store and at last check, it was $4.99. As a free game, it was a fun couple of hours’ playing. Would I pay $4.99 for it? That’s a harder question. It’s cheaper than a movie ticket and for the amount of work, the artists/creators deserve some form of payment. With me, a lot depends on playability. I think I’d be more likely to play this again if there were multiple endings possible (and I don’t recall that there are).

If you do enjoy puzzle games — and I certainly do — I’d recommend giving this a shot!
