Penny Black is a text based adventure game where players get to take on the role of the sassy Penny Black character. The story is delivered through lines of text and players have a number of different choices to make that will influence the progress of the game and ultimately how successful they are.
Get Ready For an Adventure
Because there are no graphics in Penny Black, it allows players to focus all of their attention on the storyline. There are plenty of surprises in store and the actual opportunity to influence the direction that the storyline takes. The strong retro feel of the game is rather appealing, at least at first, although some gamers are likely to feel that this gets old rather quickly. However, with several different endings to discover there is the chance to keep on coming back for more.
Going Back to the Start
People who have a love for retro games and do not require slick and stylish graphics are sure to have fun playing Penny Black. However, the fact that the entire game can be completed in as little as half an hour is a bit of a letdown, while the game’s playability factor is rather limited.
