Bertram Fiddle grows increasingly bored and is waiting for his next adventure to present itself to him. That is when the illusive Geoff the Murderer is revealed to be at large and Fiddle and his Peruvian cyclops sidekick Gavin set out to catch him once and for all. In this Victorian era point and click adventure, there is danger lurking around every corner.

Good

  • Works well in handheld mode with touchscreen controls
  • Hilariously witty dialogue
  • Enthusiastic voice acting that captures each character’s personalities tremendously
  • Fantastic puns and references
  • Subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) sexual inuendo
  • A Peruvian cyclops sidekick that can do the heavy-lifting and ungentlemanly tasks (poor Gavin)
  • Hilarious British humoured names
  • Wacky and comedic Victorian setting
  • Charming animations
  • Colourful aesthetic

Bad

  • Not optimised well for standard controls
  • Lack of options with button controls
  • Action sequences can feel a little awkward
  • Occassional glitches, but nothing game-breaking
  • The puns, despite how great they are, get repetitive quickly
  • Usual point and click frustration that comes with often not knowing what to do next.

Final Score: 85%

Comically genius and nonsensically wacky, The Adventures of Bertram Fiddle Episode 1 is a great way to spend an afternoon. The Sherlock-Victorian setting is perfect for a point and click adventure and the game’s colourful humour guarantees a smile on your face. Now if excuse me while I download episode 2.
