Adventure Gamers

The Reticule

I really enjoyed this game. It had a great story. The plot was funny and it was very original. When you use a theme like zombie apocalypse, there are a lot of things that are overused, but this game added some new and original twists. The gameplay was a solid point and click, and I only found one instance where I got stuck and had to get help. Things worked in a logical manner and it seemed like all the text for each item was unque to each item. I look forward to more games like this! \m/(>_<)\m/
