Game #49
Hall of Belated Fame Inductee  Amazon: Guardians of Eden    View all Top Dogs in this genre

An underrated "cinematic adventure" by the company famous for Tex Murphy games, Amazon is a fun romp in the style of B-movies in the 50s. As a hapless scientist who willingly brave the Amazon jungles to find your missing brother, you'll find yourself glued to the screen in this frustrating game that manages to be funny despite the intentional campiness. Many pixel-hunting and real-time puzzles sometimes spoil the fun, but the cool Indiana Jones style plot and characters help make up for it somewhat. Overall, a fun and original adventure marred by illogical pixel-hunting puzzles and cliche writing. If you like B-movies, give this one a try. If you're looking for a thoughtful, serious adventure, look elsewhere.
