Only If game review, hard first-person puzzle game

The Indy game Only If is a creative first-person adventure puzzle game that won’t take a lot of your time. The puzzles in his game are very difficult and can be very annoying if you can’t find the solution. If you can reach it to the end the game is really surprising and will probably blow your mind. With any luck you can finish the game in 2 or 3 hours.

Story
In this strange game you play character Anthony Clyde, Anthony has been partying with his companion Sam. When Anthony wakes up in the morning he find himself in an unfamiliar bed with no memory of the previous night’s events. He cannot escape from the house, but there is a radio in the room. On the radio is a angry man called Vinny and Anthony finds out that Sam is missing. Anthony can only find Sam and escape from the weird and mysterious place if he listens to Vinny and do what he says.

The puzzles
There are different kind of puzzles in the game. You need to listen very carefully to Vinny on the radio and scan the environment. There are lots of riddles and strange clues, Vinny wil tell some of them on the radio but most are hidden in the environment. A innovative part of this game is when you type something random, you get a surprising reaction. This game is not for sweatcakes, you will probably fail and die a lot in this game. Not to mention you get really confused by the puzzles.

Voices and swearing
The voice acting is great in this game, especially the voice from Vinny. Vinny sounds like a angry men with a accent. However there is a lot of swearing in the game and some people can get offensive by that. I think that the swearing is very important in this game, it wouldn’t be the same without. The swearing is also important for some riddles and clues.

Environment
When you play true the game you encounter two different environments. The first part you will see some nice decorated rooms and a park. The second part is really different, its darker and there are floating objects. The first part looks more interesting and appealing then the second part.

Conclusion
Its an interesting and fun game to experience, but it is not perfect. I have never played a game like this before and my mind kinda blowed away by the ending. The puzzles are very hard to solve and they can be a real challenge. I must confess that i just used some help sometime. I was really getting frustrated by some of the puzzles that i could not solve. It took me 2 hours to complete the game. When you play this game the story and the puzzles can be a little bit different then what you see in other games. The game does not have any replay value. The game is free to play, so I recommend everyone to give it a try.
