Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Artifex Mundi brilliance! I absolutely loved this game. I played the regular, non-CE version, and I wish I had purchased the CE version just for a little extra length. The game was fun, and the graphics were stunning. The mini games were just challenging enough, but not hard enough to slow down the flow of the game. I absolutely adored the whole steam punk theme!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant, not-too-hard adventure About 20 minutes into playing this, my husband (from across the room) said: "Wait. Are you playing a casual game where the voice acting DOESN'T suck?" And that's a good summary! This game has GREAT production value. Good scenes, good plot, good acting, good clockwork fun without being over the top in steampunk theming. I didn't find any of the puzzles too terribly challenging, which I do prefer. The plotline was fairly linear, but avoided most of the usual pitfalls. ("I need an elaborate key to unlock this glass case? I HAVE A CROWBAR") I enjoyed playing it! And, against all odds, so did my husband. I enjoyed this a lot. It's not long, and it's not difficult. But it's fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still a wonderful Adventure!!! :) Played the Collector’s Edition of this game and tried this Standard-Edition to find the differences… This game definately has it all!! Graphics and cutscenes are tremendously welldone. Loved all those brilliant animated charakters (some with german accent), it was a lot of fun to listen to their conversations, made me laugh more than once! This Standard-Edition guarantees at least 4 hours gameplay in the 2nd mode!!! 3 modes to choose from, 9 chapters, lockable inventory, direction giving hint, map shows you available action and takes you there. A mechanical raven, Mathew, is your helping friend! Lots of different hidden object scenes: fragments, silhouettes, find and use items, and slightly interactive from list. Even more minigames, most of them wellknown and good to solve, like slider-puzzles, rotate rings to form a pattern, turn all lights red… Extras ONLY available in the Collector’s Edition: 30 different hidden steambugs, lots of achievements, re-playable minigames and hidden object scenes, strategy guide, concept art, music, posters and bonus-chapter with an additional story and one more hour gameplay. Still a high recommendable adventure!!!! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PROBABLY AGAINST THE GRAIN BUT I LOVE IT Very lovely game with lots to do. If you don't like dialogue, you probably won't like it much because you sometimes have to talk to people to find out what needs to be done. Large variety of well-done HOS and fun puzzles, which aren't too complicated. Some people say this is a short game, but if you're like me and prefer to play casual and like to explore in well-crafted environments (i.e., take your time and look at everything), it will be average length. I play to enjoy, not to see how fast I can finish. Game has very good production values and beautifully conceived and very well-executed details. Can't wait for the ending, even though it's probably what I'd expect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Graphic! Great Visibility! Entertaining Game! Overall: Beautiful graphics, enjoyable storyline, shorter game but interesting throughout with entertaining HOG and Mini games.More HOG than Mini games for a change.Visuals are exceptional especially for anyone who might have difficulty seeing small objects.Only a few characters to keep track of and locations and scenes are well developed.Could have done without the baron villain theme, but it worked and wasn’t overdone.Mechanical pet is quiet and not used that often.Build a few components to create needed items and as the pet forecasts a mechanical theme, but nothing too difficult.Rather simple and relaxing game and moves forward without lots of back and forth.Rather abrupt ending but that is the norm in some of these games and at least there was closure. Graphics: Excellent. Sound: Appropriate to task and/or scene. Music: Good, a bit repetitious, but never had to turn down. Hints: Works quickly and takes you where you need to go.Since not a lot of going way back it works fine. Hidden Object Games: Excellent. Visibility is super. Items are large enough to see, but a few well hidden.Varied games manage to keep it interesting. Mini Games: Great graphics, some easy, some time consuming, but overall I managed to get about half done and I’m not a fan, so the more difficult ones will be a good challenge for mini fans. Pet: A mechanical bird that helps with items too high to reach, but he is not annoying nor does he make lots of noise. He is just an added asset and cute.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Short and Easy. While it was a very short game, about 3 hours I guess and very easy, it was still quite enjoyable. I loved all the little gadgets and machines. I would recommend trying it on a non-casual difficulty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Based on Demo I love Steampunk and a great adventure, but I'm not sure if the storyline of this is for me. Don't get me wrong, the visuals are beautiful and express the "steampunk era" nicely, the puzzles were creative and not too challenging, and the characters I had seen so far weren't bad by any means. But the accents made me cringe a bit, and without giving away spoilers, what happens at the very beginning of the game seemed a bit rushed to me, as I felt I hadn't really gotten a feel of the characters much at all. Where the demo ended did seem intriguing, though. I'd recommend this to those who love steampunk and solving out-of-the-box puzzles. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a very good game the hints charge crazy fast...skips a little slower not by much. played casual, low sound. you are helping your mentor dr. ink figure out how to stop the madman from taking over the world. not too hard. hints show you where to go. some fragmented and some HO scenes. sequel...i feel sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clockwork, Ink an Glass The most unusual thing about this game is the "bonus" play, which is the same story from another character's point of view. I enjoyed both games, there was not too much "backing and forthing", and the puzzles and game play test your logic skills. The artwork is great, the Steam Bugs you must collect are fun and easily visible. The overall feeling of this game is retro-Steam Punk, and I highly recommend it as an addition to your collection of all time favorites. Took me about 2.75 hours to play the first time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Short but fun After I played the demo and read the reviews to see if anything was not to my liking in the rest of the game, I finally used a game credit because of the reports of the short game. I was not disappointed in this game although I was a little surprised at the ending. I thought there would be more to it, but it was still good. The game was fun and I loved the characters especially the professor. Matthew was an added feature I also loved. It seems many of the games are now using a helpful creature to do our bidding. As for the challenge the game was pretty easy, although a few of the puzzles where a little tricky but fun. Some were a little different than the norm. I liked story line. The German accent gives the game a feel of reality.
