Hamlet or the Last Game without MMORPG Features, Shaders and Product Placement

Hamlet or the Last Game without MMORPG Features, Shaders and Product Placement is available on Steam for $4.99.

Poor Hamlet, his woman, Ophelia gets kidnapped, and then he gets crushed to death by a time machine. Now you (the person in the time machine) must save her, or time will be messed up! Hamlet or the Last Game without MMORPG Features, Shaders and Product Placement (I'm just going to call it HOTLGWMFSAPP now) has a pretty entertaining story and I even laughed at points.

HOTLGWMFSAPP is a point-and-click adventure game that is as simple as they come. There's no items to collect for your inventory, and no walking around to different points of a map over and over. You're in one room and you have to figure out the puzzle in that room, and then you move on to the next room. I enjoyed the simplicity of this game, and it was actually nice not having to worry about an inventory.

The puzzles in HOTLGWMFSAPP vary from good to just plain boring. I don't want to spoil anything, but there was a puzzle where you had to click one thing 50 times to complete the level. Some of the puzzles just seemed like, without the hint that you can unlock if you wait long enough, I would still be clicking randomly for hours. Though that's not every puzzle; most of the puzzles in HOTLGWMFSAPP are pretty fun to figure out. I especially liked the boss fight puzzles in this game, which required you to defeat an enemy by clicking things in the right order... you know, like a puzzle?

HOTLGWMFSAPP is a fine game that didn't give me any problems controlling. That would be sad if it controlled terribly, since it's a point-and-click game. The music was something I enjoyed in HOTLGWMFSAPP as well, and helped with getting through some of the longer puzzles. The graphics are also fun to look at, and I enjoyed the story-comics shown after each of the 5 acts. It will take you around 1.5 to 2 hours to beat HOTLGWMFSAPP.

Final Say: Yes, HOTLGWMFSAPP is short, but remember it's only $5. This game is really only for the fans of point-and-click adventure games. It has good music, graphics, and controls, but it's not for everyone. It's not the greatest point-and-click adventure game, but it's not the worst. If you're only somewhat into these types of games, then just pass on it. This game is only for the point-and-click adventure game lovers out there!
