In Manic Badger you pay a tiny pixie attempting to save his kidnapped love. You must leave the Underground and enter the World of the 'Oomans' to complete your quest.
It's a nice little game with good descriptions and humorous touches making it worth playing. It would probably make a nice introductory game for a younger adventurer.
The puzzles are logical and the vocabulary strong enough to avoid headaches.
A novel change from your run of the mill scenarios.




Parser/Vocabulary (Rating: 6/10)

Simple but effective.

Atmosphere (Rating: 7/10)

Well written and atmospheric descriptions.

Cruelty (Rating: Merciful)

Very merciful. Hard to die and very linear. You can get stuck in the greengrocers, but I think this is a bug.

Puzzles (Rating: 6/10)

Very simple, very logical.

Overall (Rating: 6/10)

A short but enjoyable little game, certainly suitable for younger and beginning adventurers.
