Weird Park 1: Broken Tune – Review
In Weird Park 1, the gameplay is simple, not too difficult or unique. However, the story is interesting enough to a get a spooky thrill from playing this game. Especially with the clown ghost and the weird little jester that both keep taunting you and following you through the game.
You will find that you have to replay most HO scenes at least twice to collect key items. And as there is no fast-travel map, some backtracking is required.
But on the plus side, if you like a quirky spooky atmospheric game. And you don’t like fairies or fantasy HO games.
Then you should check out Alawar’s Weird Park: Broken Tune. For its fun yet creepy atmosphere! With the bright visuals, twisty storyline, weird characters and sinister music. Which come together well to create a light-hearted spooky mystery-solving adventure game.
