Depending on your sense of humour, you will either find Adventure Game hilariously funny, or completely hate it. Adventure Game and its inhabitants know they are in a game, and don’t just break the fourth wall, but completely smash it to bits!

I played this with my fifteen year-old daughter, and we were both in stitches laughing at the game poking fun at the genre and itself.

Adventure Game is an action-RPG type game, where you have to solve puzzles and kill lots of birds which have caused the local residents some bother.

When asked if you know what you have to do in the game, this is your characters response.

The controls leave a little to be desired, but the game still makes for an entertaining hour or so, especially if you want to have an idea of what Final Fantasy would be like if it was made with a British sense of humour.
