We just got the first Froyo handset with full Flash 10.1 support and I know a lot of you are asking themselves if you really need Flash on a mobile Plattform for gaming.
That’s why I looked around for a halfway decent Flash game to show you in these early stages of the Flash open beta. What I have found was a total surprise to me and after playing the first of four available games, I claim The Several Journeys of Reemus is the best point and click adventure you can find on any Android device ( …that doesn’t run Android 1.6 or lower, of course nothing can touch the classic Lucasarts adventures, but they aren’t available until Scumm gets ported to 2.0 and I’m sure after playing them for decades you want something new, if it’s good).
Reemus, the insect terminator has a problem, his glorious deeds are always overshadowed by his big brother, that’s why he and his purple bear sidekick Liam go out on glorious adventures with the goal to write an epic ballad about their journey. The game is your typical point and click adventure, where you click everywhere to find out what you can interact with. The game reminds me a lot of the charme of the old Gobliiins games and of course at the game with legendary title: Woodruff and the Schnibble of Azimuth. The difficulty is not all that hard in the beginning, compared to the atrocities the other mentioned games had back in their days, the solutions are funny and engaging and when you see for example a tongue and a frozen pole, you just know what you have to do. ^^
To demonstrate the gameplay and to show the world how great full-fledged Flash gaming on a mobile really is, we do a walkthrough of the first 2 screens of 4 in the Prologue game. Don’t watch if you want a spoiler-free gameplay experience, but I doubt I show too much with 4 complete games already available and a fifth in the pipeline.
There are two different endings and several ways to get to them in the Prologue. If you already have Flash 10.1 on your phone and love adventures (who doesn’t?), you owe it to yourself to check them out.
