IMG Reviews The Wolf Among Us - Episode 1: Faith
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Telltale Games' The Wolf Among Us. Based on Bill Willingham's award-winning comic book series FABLES and licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, The Wolf Among Us features a cast of fairy tale characters struggling to survive in the dangerous Fabletown.

Here's an excerpt:

Each time you have a chance to talk with a character, a series of dialogue choices pop up, with a shrinking bar showing you how much time you have to make your decision. These decisions allow you to, in essence, be naughty or nice or subtle variations in between in dealing with different characters, and often how you deal with them will affect how they deal with you. As you make your choices and influence other characters' feelings about you, their reactions will sometimes pop up in the upper left of your screen ("He'll remember that" for example), letting you know that your actions will have consequences later on.

This gives an otherwise short game (or episode in this case) some replay value as you may want to test some of your interactions to see if you can change how things play out. And while your actions do have real consequences, there is a storyline that will play out in its larger outline regardless of how you work your way through the story. The fact that I did go back several times to test out different scenarios, however, is sign of how engaged I was in the story. I was actually interested in seeing if I could change certain outcomes, which is a sign that the game designers succeeded in their goals of creating an interesting story with characters worth getting to know.

Control Command Escape Reviews Cook, Serve, Delicious!
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Control Command Escape has posted a new review of Cook, Serve, Delicious! from Vertigo Gaming. The strategic restaurant sim puts players in control of an old restaurant and challenges them to bring it back to five star status by skillful completion of tasks within a short time frame.

To describe it as frantic would be doing it a disservice, given how often that word is used in the context of iOS games. During the lunch-time rush, you値l have to take orders, prepare and cook the meals, and serve them. And then prepare and cook the food whilst taking more orders. And then serve the food whilst cooking more food and taking more orders. You will get the orders wrong. You値l neglect to take orders from impatient and short-tempered customers. You値l forget to actually serve the food you somehow managed to cook. Quickly, you値l learn to adopt more of a triage approach, to just try and not screw up too badly, rather than aiming to get everything perfect. Oh, and if that wasn稚 enough, you値l need to need to wash dishes, empty trash, and clean toilets. Whilst all of this is going on. This is a game that actually made me loudly curse that I needed to wash my hands after cleaning the toilet.
