Hamlet: The Video Game

In addition to the review of Rooms mentioned below, I also posted a review of another puzzle game at PopMatters today. Hamlet is a far superior puzzler, albeit a much briefer one.

Also, while I am critical of Rooms's narrative elements and the game makes me question the need for plots to exist in games of this sort at all, Hamlet with its radical departure from adapting the story of Hamlet to the puzzle genre generates a marvellously surreal tale alongside its often fun and challenging puzzles.
