Inspired by the classic Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland, and especially the imaginative graphic novel Coraline, our journey with Violett begins with this young caged by an evil being from another world, who for no reason has our protagonist trapped in a strange parallel universe of fantasy to the real world. Our mission? Obviously, escape the clutches of the villain of the moment to reach the exit that brings us together with our parents. And a little more, really, because this adventure loses little time developing the argument, to focus entirely on puzzle solving and exploration.
Which it is not bad considering the good level which have most of their puzzle, quite brainy and challenging a rule. However, in many cases, the degree of difficulty is also given by the confusing of these tests, which almost never fail entirely clear what to do and when we met the challenge in question, causing the early stages of the adventure would be unduly tortuous even for a fan of the genre.But this hurdle, and assuming largely a bases Violett is to test, test and test any action by strange enough, soon begin to enjoy this adventure, who knows how to surprise with game scenarios as imaginative and original as tricky to design challenges.
- Imaginative and original design of the game world and its inhabitants.
- Great freedom of action. We can explore several areas in the order you want.
- His argument is underdeveloped area. Too superficial.
