When fugitive magician Lucas MacGuffin bungles a museum robbery, he finds himself:
(a) magically bound to an ancient amulet;
(b) up against a city in full high-tech security lockdown; and
(c) suddenly dealing with the worst body hair problems he's ever had.

As a human, Lucas is agile and cunning. Wolf Lucas would rather smash anything in his way. Only by transforming between the two forms and cleverly utilising both sets of skills will he stand any chance of lifting his curse.

And with the city's most powerful billionaire after his blood, a jaded Private Investigator on his (now-literal) tail and the rent long overdue, he'll need every ounce of ingenuity he manage.Along the way he'll need to befriend a hilarious cast of characters, convince the city its most beloved citizen is a terrifying criminal mastermind, and hardest of all, teach his daughter it isn't funny to fill the fridge with dog food.

From the award-winning indie developers behind Jolly Rover (Australian Game of the Year, 2010 Freeplay Awards), MacGuffin's Curse is a story brimming with humour, personality and heart.

I did try to get into it but something threw me off half way though.. Looking back, it was the design i did not like, gameplay wise it was a fair puzzler though.

Got this in the haloween bundle. Nothing really grab me as far as the gameplay is concerned. The humor is not my cup of tea either.

I can see young people really playing this game. i think I am just too old for it.

Seems to be a bit slower paced as far as the gameplay. Animations are on par, or better then most of the indie stuff out there.
Seems like nicely done artwork, and the sound acting seems OK.

Nothing at all bad that i can see so far. I guess it is just not really my sort of game.
