Alasdair Beckett-King AMO Interview

Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet! is a retro point-and-click indie adventure game presented in a classic 2D style. It is a sequel to the freeware adventure game Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy!, which won several awards and received some great reviews from the gaming press upon release. Nelly Cootalot’s creator, Alasdair Beckett-King, recently started a Kickstarter campaign to raise £15,000 to fund the sequel. To celebrate successfully reaching this goal (and hopefully pushing forward to reach some of the exciting stretch goals), AMO is proud to present an exclusive online interview with Alasdair Beckett-King!

GAME REVIEW – The Journey Down: Over The Edge

By Marty Mulrooney

TheJourneyDown

The Journey Down: Over The Edge is a point-and-click adventure game created by Theodor Waern, with music by Simon De Souza. Five years in the making, this isn’t just any freeware Adventure Game Studio project either. Over The Edge has been put together so expertly that one could be forgiven for thinking that it is in fact a long lost LucasArts classic from the glory days of the adventure gaming genre. There is artistry amidst its pixels, beauty within the world portrayed. Welcome to The Journey Down.

GAME REVIEW – Puzzle Bots

By Marty Mulrooney

Puzzlebots 2010-05-12 21-38-20-72

Puzzle Bots is the latest point ‘n’ click game from Wadjet Eye Games, a company I previously came across during my time reviewing the classic Blackwell trilogy of games for Hardydev.com last year. I therefore decided to put myself forward as a beta tester for the studio’s new game Puzzle Bots last month. As soon as I started playing, I was blown away; gameplay and graphics were delightful even in those early beta stages. I knew I would have to review the final build on AMO when it released, which brings me to my review. Puzzle Bots rocks!
