While at first this game is charming and fun, it quickly gets boring. You find yourself at the point where you wish it was finished so you could get to the ending sooner. I love complex puzzles, but the puzzles in the game were not really challenging, as much as they were annoying. This is due to the wierd physics and control issues that are constantly happening. I remember many times where I would input controls and the game would not respond the way it should. I also felt like the mouse control itself was clunky, in the sense that I didn't feel like anything was smooth when moving.
The art work is great in the game, yet gets very repetitive, very quickly. You see the same safe, box, books and atmosphere throughout the whole entire game. The only thing that changes are some of the pictures on the wall and of course the puzzle from room to room.
The music is fantastic, it is one reason I continued to play through the game. The narrator can also be very funny and when you die, clever comments come up.
I got 3/4 of the way through the game and honestly decided to stop playing. Maybe one day I'll get back to it, but I wanted an ending and the game was just rehashing the same things over and over, most of these things being frustrating.
After looking up the ending on YouTube, I feel disappointed in the story of the game as well. The conclusion does not fully wrap up, nor does it make me want more (like a good game should).
So I do not recommend this game, unless you can get it really cheap (like I did) and you want to play a little bit to pass the time, so that you can mess around with the different dimensions.
