Thanks everyone for the many kind reviews! We're hard at work on part 2...

After a long time in development, the adventure begins. This was a labor of love. Hand painted backgrounds and characters all scanned and worked up with Flash. Everything should be working alright, but if you notice any major issues please let us know and we will fix them right away. Thank you Tom for the sponsorship! It lets us keep making games like this. Special thanks also to Mike Rudolph for making such excellent music. This is part one of a three part game so stay tuned for more Gretel and Hansel!

Stellar look & feel, gameplay not so polished

This dark little gem was a delightfully macabre romp down memory lane, gleefully resurrecting and defiling my childhood perception of the original story. This re-telling has all the cruelty and shattered innocence you might expect from the brothers Grimm, but this time it's been rendered in lovely, delicate-looking watercolors with a childlike simplicity that's all the more jarring when paired with some of the animations. Visually, it's superb, and conceptually, it's vastly entertaining. It's not only nice to look at, it's underscored with some splendidly dark humor.

Unfortunately, the gameplay itself isn't quite as stunning. In my first playthrough, I somehow ended up with all ten stones before I'd even looked at the squirrel, and just trying to crawl out of the bedroom ended with Hansel bloody and cowering in the corner. Movement is sluggish, you have to stand in very specific places to accomplish most tasks, and convincing Gretel to use her slingshot seems to require an act of Congress.

Having said all that, the sheer amount of effort that's been piled into this game is obvious, and even considering the difficulties involved in just getting around, I can't bring myself to give it a low rating. In all respects but that one, this is a really wonderful game, and I'm definitely looking forward to the other parts of the trilogy.

I must say...

This is an amazingly well thought out game idea. I like the choice of putting Gretel first instead of Hansel, and the whols concept of the art style is amazing. Kudos good sir.
