Hoodwink Review

 

This feels like one pricey demo rather than a fully baked game.

The cool art direction and quirky sci-fi world get squandered on some truly uninspired adventure gaming drudgery. The best part about a game shouldn't be the fact that it's over quickly. With an hour or so of dull, confusing point-and-click frustration...

From the minute Hoodwink sauntered into my review queue, I knew she was trouble. Stylish cell-shaded graphics wrapped around a noir plot set in the future, she was like the lovechild of Tex Murphy and Tex Avery. She seemed too good to be true. She was...

Sometimes the smallest things can bring you down. Usually it’s a piece of lead between the eyes. This time, it’s a clunky interface and characters who don’t know when to stop talking. The optimist in me says I got lucky. The pessimist says I’d rather...

Hoodwink may look pretty, but beneath its lustrous sheen is a short, frustrating, illogical mess that ends before it has a chance to get going.

Stylish visuals make for a sophisticated-looking world ; Voice acting is charming

Illogical puzzles ; Awkward level design and movement ; More like a demo than a full game ; Poor implementation of hints and objectives ; Very limited game world

A point and click adventure set in a dystopian future, assume the role of Michael: thief, tinkerer and all-round wise guy.
