Crossworlds: The Flying City
Could be much better...
A good story (traveling through different dimensions),... but ...failed to develop a good game! Could be much more interesting and less tiring,
Only few things to do in each place each time you enter, then you have to keep moving back and forth (sometimes by car - and do the same thing over and over again: put the key, start the car, move the gear stick and accelerate).
Scenes of HOS are repetitive and some things are so tiny... and sometimes even the same color as the background, ...! Impossible to see (like the gnome!).
After half an hour I was with eyes burning with so much effort to see, tired of coming and going to the same places.

I only played the one hour trial.
Storyline interesting - travelling through dimesions to other worlds to find your father.
Graphics good and no annoying background music.
This is really an adventure game with HOS.
The HOS have some very small items that blend with the background and are difficult to find.
However, the HOS is nicely drawn and not cluttered.
There is a lot of back and forth to find objects/items and then use them.
Annoying is the car as you have to repeat: put in the key, start the car, move the gear stick and accelerate.
Hints are available but fills slowly.
Mini-games/puzzles are few and far between (only did on easy fuse puzzle in the whole hour).
This game had the potential to be quite good but was let down by the lack of voice over (they also needed to correct typos in the text), less frustrating HOS and more mini-games/puzzles.
Difficult to tell how long this game is or whether it improved later.
If a game doesn't grab me in an hour its not worth buying and this one didn't.

Could have been better
Based on Demo:
You father escapes in a time warp egg, you goal is to find him.
The graphics are semi good generally.
HOS is junkpile & some items very hard to find, Hint available, but slow to recharge
No VO, mellow music, alot of reading for directional help,
It could have been better with ANY map, interactive maps are even better. Maybe a faster hint recharge or a magnifier.
interesting storyline, and if you need that extra punch, I'd say it's worth DD, just gt you cyber sneakers on & have at it

Hope the Sequel is better
Normally, I like this sort of game, but this was confusing. The characters are interesting and the idea was good, but thank goodness for the walkthrough. Though quirky, I think I got the hang of it....I Hope this is continued and I'll look forward to trying it....

I Loved it!
I really enjoyed Crossworlds. I played it last year and I still remember it as if I played it yesterday. I thought the story was very good and unique, a lot of imagination went into it. My favorite chapter was Robo City, it had a very apocalyptic feel to it and the old car was fun to drive. Although there are HOG scenes, I believe it?s more of an adventure game (which I prefer). I thought the game was challenging in some parts, but I?m not one to rush through games anyway. I didn?t get hooked until the 2nd chapter, so you might stick with the trial for the full hour. If you are looking for something a little different, this might be worth a try.

frustrating NOT fun
muddled through but have to agree with another reviewer, it was confusing and while hidden objects are to be 'hidden' - I did not like how they were practically invisible blending into the background color not really 'hidden' more just plain not able to see. A lot of pointless clicking. Sorry Big Fish you won't get my $2.99 for this one.
