The game is set on Twinsun, a planet stabilized between two suns. The planet is divided into two hemispheres by a huge mountain range running along its equator. Both the two hemispheres and the mountain range can be visited, which gives the game a variety of landscapes, including desert and snow. The different locations are divided into small active scenes.
The game has a total of 120 scenes to visit, and you are given very much freedom to do this. These scenes are viewed from a three dimensional isometric perspective. The characters in the game are mainly based on toys and animals. Four different species live on Twinsun: the Quetches, the Spheros, the Rabbibunnies and the Grobos. Quetches are humanoids with a pony tail right on top of their heads and Spheros have sphere like bodies. Rabbibunnies are rabbits walking on two legs and Grobos look like elephants. Characters of these species are spread all over the game. You need to talk and interact with them to receive hints or help on your quest.
Twinsun has been under the dictatorship of Dr FunFrock, who dominates the planet with his powers of cloning, mutation and teleportation. FunFrock has forbidden the people to speak of an ancient legend along with the name of a goddess, Sendell. Twinsen, the hero of the game, is having prophetical dreams and has been taken to the asylum of Citadel Island, where the game starts. From this point onwards Twinsen revolts against FunFrock to save his girlfriend Zoé and to eventually save the world.
Little Big Adventure can firmly take his place with the rest of the classic games because it is, quite frankly, brilliant. The graphics, animation and sound are all extremely well done. The gameplay pulls you in from the word go and manages to keep the frustration factor low by not being too unfair. However, the size and difficulty of the game, coupled with its great playability, will keep you playing for weeks.
The award winning adventure. Join Twinsen, the hero prophet, on a surreal adventure through fantastical worlds to discover the Legend. Meet strange beings, solves cryptic clues and defeat mean bad guys as you guide Twinsen to his destiny. A game so captivating it will become your world.
