Hector fun but overpriced.

The games really funny but really short. Too bad I didn't inform myself better before I bought it, I just really liked the writing. Paying 9$/9€(lol) for an Iphone Port with a couple of bugs whereby the original costs 3$ is just a bit disturbing. Also apparently the sound quality is broken compared to the iphone version (I thought its still acceptable, since pure voice even still sounds OK @ 128kbits). Yeah, so you might want to consider not buying it.

Edit: I also just realized that you can get it for 10$ from the TT store with an EU Ip.

The price hike for the PC version does seem a bit lame. Guess I'll have to wait until it goes on sale.

Is it, like, the parts in the QL and then talking down the hostage and that's it?

That price-hike does seem rather extortionate.

Well the Hostage neogtiation is pretty long, so there is some more gameplay. I guess it's all in all about 3 hours.

Agreed, very fun but a bit pricey. I bought the iPod/Phone version for £2.39, which I thought was acceptable, but the price on Steam (which is where I first saw it) is too much for two-or-thereabouts hours of play.

They had to remake the whole game using the same art assets in Telltale's engine, and then they had to put in all the new hints and stuff. $10 is a little steep for 2 hours, but you know, it's a really funny and fun game.

@Garris: The first is still my favorite but the second is pretty good as well. It's also longer than the first. Third is a little disappointing.

Not too pricey in my opinion.
