1112 Ep.01 is a click and search game by Aghartha Studios. $7.99
If you want my opinion of this game in three words, here it is: I Love It. I absolutely love this game so much, this easily can take up to 10 hours to complete the game. 1112 (as I found out watching the AppVee video is pronounced eleven twelve) is a game similar to I Spy where you must find or complete tasks to find out what the next one it, except it follows a storyline with a great sense of humor. Everything in the game was hand drawn which impresses me alot, doing art my whole way through school I know how hard it is. This is the first or six episodes, with all coming episodes at half price, if they have the same amount of content I can't wait.
As said above every single image seen in the game was made by a hand drawn image. This means that there are about 15-20 fully furnished and highly detailed rooms and areas as well as an intro and ending video. These are superbly done and have had alot of dedication put into them. Only one other game that I have seen has this sort of dedication in it. The game is fully interactive and almost everything has an option or two associated with it. While 95% of the time none of these will be refused by Louis Everett, the main character, no matter how much you want to burn the curtains. I would like to see in future episodes that the interactive part of this game becomes more positive and allows more choices. The controls are easy to use but I would recommend you read everything in the help section before starting the game to get a good grip on how to play.
The sound primarily only sound effects. They are quite good and alot of thought has gone into them. The one thing which disappointed me about this was that there was no Voice Acting. I can understand why as with hundreds of choices it would take up to much space to make. The sound effects in the intro movie especially gives it the dark and spooky feel.
The gameplay is very challenging. While there are no objectives the obvious hints are given from other characters about what to do. Some of the hints about what to do aren't very good and can confuse you. One example of that was when I have to look for a book in the bathroom for a code but it ends up being on the mirror when the tap is turned on. Apart from that what you need to do to complete each part requires alot of testing out every option and in the end when you find it a sense of relief flows over you, giving you confidence to try and find the next thing. There are walkthroughs out on the internet which will help you complete the game, I do not recommend using them as it turns this game into an instant disappointment. The game for me is a big hit as of its challenges and the amount of value you get out of the many hours taking to complete it. After finishing it once I went though using a walkthrough and in 15-30 minutes the game was over.
For me this is an awesome game which will keep me coming back to see what happens to our favorite Louis Everett. For parents who don't want to show their children drug and sexual references and swearing, I would play this game after the kiddies are asleep. Some reviews haven't showed that they enjoyed this game much while I really enjoyed it. I suggest trying the lite version to see if it fits your personality, but for me it is worth every cent. The dedication put into this game is evident.
I would recommend this game if you enjoyed- Yard Sale Hidden Treasure: Sunnyville
