Samarost2 is the whimsical story of a gnome-like character who ventures out to rescue his kidnapped dog from a planet of razor-sharp-toothed aliens. This is a real time-waster, so be warned before you start this game. The style and graphical nature of the game brings me back to the Myst and Riven genres, but the overall gameplay is slow and tedious. This is a hunt and point game, where clicking on objects in the scene will unravel a puzzle in order to advance. However, the stunning visuals make this game more than worthwhile. I love the dynamic between the simple vector-illustrated characters and the lush nature-inspired photo environments.
