Initailly thought this would be a Burton-esque steampunk P&C adventure but despite the grand music, it turned out that The Clockwork Man actually is mostly a hidden object game with the occasional puzzle. Unfortunately the setting of the adventure, New Coventry, is much like its real-world equivalent and full of people with messy, run-down houses so the hidden object bits are frequent and rather tedious. However, unlike the world in the game, attractive women don't tend to run around enthusing about how much they like to clear places up.
Backgrounds were well drawn, though the designers elected to do the trick found on a zillion visual novels and show interactions between characters by sweeping them in from the sides. It's kinda cheap looking. Music was good, though didn't loop well and tended to be a bit jarring when it did. Story was overblown, though on the plus side the annoying little R2D2 thing ended up dead.
The game takes about 2-3 hours to complete. At about £2 an hour (that's about $10,000 for those in the colonies), it may not seem like wonderful value. Artifex Mundi tend to do this sort of thing better.
