Following his previous two cases, Adam begins to unravel a new mystery. This time, Adam comes to the aid of a painter that is besieged by a ghost. In his investigation, he learns more about the same cult and that it might be somehow connected to his missing sister. Through mortal danger, he reunites the painter with his departed wife but also attains a solid lead about his sister.
For the final case, Adam finds his sister, but also the leader of the cult which took her, leading to a confrontation. He narrowly avoids death and ends up in a strange world that seems to be completely morphed even though it resembles reality. Battling madness, he manages to find his way back to reality where he sees that he is about to get killed by the cultists and their powerful leader. Instead, his sister sacrifices time and Adam avoids danger but ends up trapped in a place outside of this world.
Is just me or the last two episode feels more intense than the previous two?
The storyline in Lady Painter and Zero Hour getting more tense, complex and thrilling. Wolfe’s goal become closer, and each step he takes, he get closer to the darkest side. I love how Mad Head Games write their story by connecting each chapter. It seems different cases, but everytime we complete it, we get a new clue.
Also, I love how Mad Head Games keep HOS in minimum. They focus on puzzle and adventure part, which is very challenging and entertaining. Mad Head Games, like their name, is really mad head. They put more effort into their puzzle since they didn’t work on HOS too much. Crafting puzzle are way more harder, IMO, because you have to think, “ Is this one suits the story?” and “Are we already create this in another game?”
I don’t think I need to say more about their graphic. Their visual is as amazing as their gameplay. We didn’t spent too much time by collecting inventory. It feels like we’re moving really, really fast.
Overall, I love this game. The open ending made me curious, where Adam will go after this? Will he just wait until his time over? Or there’s another adventure wait for him?
