Rated 5 out of 5 by from A WIN all the way around! While I've seen the Steam Punk theme used in a good number of games, none have got it down quite so well as this one. The graphics are fantastic as well as the voice acting. The HO aspects of the game are (at least for the trial I played) fairly easy though not overly simplistic The story-line as well, is engaging and very different from the norm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long live steampunk Incredible game for those tired of fairy tales and horrifying stories. Every game element holds the highest mark. A lot of effort was put to bring out this masterpiece. Start playing to prove it for yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous game If you're sick of demented werewolves and bloody corpses and love beautiful graphics, daring adventure and an interesting storyline then this is the game for you. So excited to find an adventure/HO game that isn't dark and depressing but instead offers good, old-fashioned baddies and an immersive world full of wonder. I love the setting in what seems to be a Bavarian village, with German townsfolk in traditional garb and accents to boot. I enjoyed the mini-games as well, some of which I hadn't encountered before. The HO scenes were delightful too, and there were was a good balance between the two. The only minus (and this is a small one) was that the ending seemed rather abrupt and hurried, almost as if the developers ran out of time/money and had to cut it short. Still, this is only a minor bug and certainly doesn't detract from the game itself, which more than makes up for it. I hope to see more games like this on BF!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely delightful game! Long enough to pique my interest! Even though Clockwork Tales: Of Glass & Ink CE was not a very long game, it was long enough for me to enjoy it including the bonus game. The five-star is well-deserved! Great artwork, cutscenes, VOS, puzzles, HOS, music, you name it. And the storyline is about a scientist, Professor Ambrose Ink, who calls upon his protege, Evangeline Glass, to save him and the town of Hochwald from earthquakes brought on by egomaniacal Gerhard Barber. The bonus game gives you a prequel of how Professor Ink was captured. Anyway, I thought I was an expert but now I realize I'm not. Some of the puzzles, in my opinion, were tricky and I didn't get them all this time. So there you have it. I highly recommend this game. Great job Artifex Mundi!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refreshing and different, even though one could wish for more The games graphics and sound are superb. Storyline is pleasant, at least it doesnt start in a naive or dull way some of the games do. System is very solid, riddles are not too difficult even on expert level. Game could be bit longer and one could expect a collectors edition to have more than just collectible steambugs. However, one has to say that the bugs themselves and their descriptions are amazing and very well prepared, connected to where they can be found in the game. I would very much like to see a longer, more challenging continuation of this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I should have waited a day for this 1/2 price sale but I couldn't LOL Others have described the game play very well and I usually just play the demo and then wait for a half price sale. This one I was enjoying it so much that I bought it anyway! Then, of course, it came on sale for 1/2 price today! Of the list on sale I have them all except the 3 TD & TM games :( Anyway, I am enjoying the game - not too difficult but not easy either. A great way to spend a Sunday. Try it you might like it and with the 1/2 price sale well worth the cost :) Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game Just finished the demo & immediately bought the game. Although I was dissappointed that the demo ended long before my "free" hour was up. I play a good number of games, but still consider myself a casual player. I often get frustrated by the difficulty of the puzzles & HOGs. For me in this game both had the perfect level of challenge. I loved the graphics, music & story-line-even though I am not really sure what steam punk is ;-).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't listen to the negs, try it yourself! I was a little surprised by the negative reviews for this game, it seemed promising. I decided to try the demo. I loved every minute of the demo, and since purchasing, have continued to find this game to be a great gem! Fans of the genre need to try it out, nuff said.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really really really liked this game..... The storyline is a bit confusing at first. You are a detective and you have been called upon by your mentor, Dr. Mentor, to the town of Hochwald that is being slowly and then inevitably completely ruined by a HUGE tremor caused by a big bad (really big - like half the size of the empire state building) mechanical robot. But, each time a tremor hits, all Dr. Ink says isi " this is bad and getting worse". No kidding doc! There are soldiers everywhere - baddies and the huge, big, bad mechanical robot rams his fist through the wall and kidnaps Dr. Ink, grabbing him and putting him in a cage where he is carried on the robot's back up to a castle beyond the town in the mountains. And then a zeppelin appears so, of course, you go around town finding pieces of the soldier's outfit so you can disguise yourself and get on said zeppelin. Why walk when you can fly - seriously, that's what she said - lol. There are cute things so - yes. There is an amazingly cute gold mechanical bird that was Dr. Ink's companion but gets destroyed in the last quake - but you put him together and he becomes your companion/hint. His name is Matthew (love it - my son's name). The people in town seem to being nice and helpful. Now, on to the other things I deem not quite so important but take notes on just for you: If you click on the "extras" icon you can actually find the achievements room - you have a boatload (ok - 25) of achievements you can get and they seem to form an image of a woman. Well, not seem, they do. You also have to - well, you don't have to but you can - collect 30 mechanical bugs (11 in Hochwald, 8 elsewhere, and 11 someplace else) - you're actually told where you can find them - not specifically - but like in town, etc. And they are not difficult to find because they are bugs, mechanical and not small. I found like 5 before the FT ended (which only took me 35 mins.). There is also a bonus game called "Ink's story", along with all the wallpapers, soundtracks, etc., etc. The HOGs that I can remember playing were interactive, the mini games easy. I did not have to use the strategy guide at all. Matthew - sorry, the hint button - magically recharged liked immediately and he boinked his little gold beak on it to let you know it was ready - awwww - sorry I am all for the cuteness this week. All in all for those of you who like all the bells and whistles that come with a CE and this seems to have quite a few (surprised that you could actually see the achievement room and know how many achievements you get and where you can find the collectible bugs). Unfortunately, for me, I'm on a limited income and already begging family members to help me buy 3 CEs I desperately want so I will prob have to wait for the SE to come out and hope I haven't blown all my free codes on games that I already want as well. OH, and if you hate bugs of any kind this game is not for you - mechanical and otherwise this game will not be for you! This game was awesome and I am so sorry it ended - ARGH! I want this game!!!!!!! Glam-ma says high 5 and just get it - well, try the free trial first but I'll bet you WILL buy it afterwards.
