I don’t usually play point and click adventures but when I saw the artwork for Nordlicht I had to give it a go. It sounds like a lot of games I’ve fallen in love with over the years. Guess I just appreciate good art? Anyway, this little game has a good story to accompany the art and the mechanics are easy enough to make this game child-friendly.
I point, I click, Repeat
As mentioned, Nordlicht is a point and click game where you figure out how to do things by exploring and dragging items either onto each other to craft or onto the scene to use. The gameplay is easy, though you might get a little stumped if you don’t think outside the box or try to do something in the wrong order/spot.
There are three parts to the story with what I’d call a little mini-game between where you have to sail the ship and keep it from getting destroyed by lightning, waves, or icebergs. Each of the three acts builds on the story of a Father and Daughter (and guinea pig) journey to visit mom. Several times in the story are little easter egg phrases that you may or may not notice. Plus there are lots of little nordic tidbits thrown in.
Did I enjoy my playthrough?
You’re darn tootin! I’m glad I picked Nordlicht up to review, despite it not being my favorite genre. I enjoyed seeing all the little cinematics and the art during the actual gameplay was beautiful. I would definitely play another one in this same style! Pick it up on Steam for a steal at only $5!
