Chris takes a leap back in time to write his review on Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness.

“Robots having their way with fruit? A hobo scientist who performs experiments on urine? Deadly mimes? These things combined can only mean one thing: Penny Arcade made a video game. The famous web comic, admired by many across the world, has come up with a nice little adventure game with a not so nice price tag of 1600 MS Points. So is it worth it?

First of all, think of yourself as lucky that this is an arcade title and not a retail title. Imagine going into your local retailer and asking for Penny Arcade: On The Rain Slick Precipice of Darkness. The name itself is proof that you are in for a truly absurd ride on a crazy cartoon roller-coaster. When you begin the game, you are able to customise your character to suit your need, decking them out in the wonderful fashions of the 1920s. Now, I must say this. When a game not only includes your character in the gameplay, but also in the comic strip cutscenes; I’m impressed. That most definitely shows that the developers have put a lot of effort into the character creation system. After you’re done playing doll, the game starts proper. You’ll follow your character to his house, which lay decimated at the hands of a giant robot. You then discover Gabe and Tycho, from the comics, as they go around trying to catch this elusive robot. Throughout the story, the humour from the comics is definitely present. However, if you’re not a fan of PA’s brand of humour, you should step away now.”
