MacGuffin’s Curse Reviews

Based on 3 critics – Overal Score: 83 / 100


GameInfo: – Help Lucas MacGuffin (magician turned thief turned werewolf) sneak and smash his way through this fiendishly addictive comedy-puzzle-adventure for PC and Mac. Winner of the Freeplay Award for Best Game Writing! With hilarious dialogue, charming hand-drawn art and huge replay value, it’s perfect for seasoned adventurers and casual gamers alike.

When fugitive magician Lucas MacGuffin bungles a museum robbery, he finds himself:

magically bound to an ancient amulet;
up against a city in full high-tech security lockdown; and
suddenly dealing with the worst body hair problems he’s ever had.

As a human, Lucas is agile and cunning. Wolf Lucas would rather smash anything in his way. Only by transforming between the two forms and cleverly utilising both sets of skills will he stand any chance of lifting his curse.

And with the city’s most powerful billionaire after his blood, a jaded Private Investigator on his (now-literal) tail and the rent long overdue, he’ll need every ounce of ingenuity he manage.

Along the way he’ll need to befriend a hilarious cast of characters, convince the city its most beloved citizen is a terrifying criminal mastermind, and hardest of all, teach his daughter it isn’t funny to fill the fridge with dog food.

From the award-winning indie developers behind Jolly Rover (Australian Game of the Year, 2010 Freeplay Awards), MacGuffin’s Curse is a story brimming with humour, personality and heart.

IGM It was supposed to be a simple heist, but it landed Lucas MacGuffin into an adventure filled with mysterious women, an angry ex-cop and a tail. MacGuffin’s Curse is a light-hearted puzzle game which features over 100 side quests and just as many “individually sealed rooms” that you will have to lead MacGuffin through. Read Full Review 80/100
BoG A game by Brawesome where not only you get to do puzzles, but also experience some cool characters and some good writing. It’s a fun little game, but after a game like Jolly Rover, this isn’t something as special as it should be. Read Full Review 75/100
