It's strange when I'm diving into the game für hours on my Pixel XL. Never before has an Android game tight me to the tiny screen so much.
Well, but I also played it on the big screen. Yes, it's awesome. Casting the screen via Chromecast to the TV, and using keyboard & mouse on the Pixel. Works like a charm.
But since I'm even playing on the toilet :D (please Ron Gilbert, forgive me... the toilet paper pun was intentional) I enjoy having it on my mobile device, so I can decide big screen or small screen.
It's hard to tell you how awesome this game is. Probably because I immediately felt that Monkey Island feeling, but it's so much more. Even though it feels like 1987 somehow, you definitely experience at all times that this is not a bad try to be retro, but that this is a totally new and fun game. Technically and story-wise.

And here is the magic. I don't know how the great team that programmed this masterpiece made it, but they managed to have a retro-style graphics game without leaving people some kind of disappointed. It's often the case that you know a game from childhood, starting it in an emulator and... well, you'll be some kind of disenchanted. Not here, because like I said is a brand new game, with a retro-style look, but with magical feeling that this is a modern piece of software.
Awesomerino. That's the only word describing it correctly :)

I'll never look at Thimbleweed the same way as before.
