Summary

Swiping the mysterious Chronoberry Pie changed everything for our beloved Winterbottom... one bite made him more than an ordinary pie-grabbing humbug. That first taste changed him into something quite extraordinary, granting him the ability to break the rules of time. With these newfound time recording tricks up his cufflink, and with the help of his time clones, Winterbottom can now snatch pies with the greatest of ease. But on his journey to devour every pie, Winterbottom must mind the signs... the perils of being unstuck in time. Join Winterbottom on his award winning debut Misadventures as he chases pie through over 75 unique puzzles.

Which isn't to say that Winterbottom is not a fun game. It is fun, and challenging, but don't expect an artsy, black and white version of Super Mario Bros. It's not a fun-filled romp through a fantastic world - it's a test to divide the clever from the slow. Have fun, but all the same, buyer beware!

The entire quest will probably take most gamers between three and four hours to complete, which could be an issue for some people. If you’re one of them, I encourage you to stop whining. The greatness of a game isn’t decided by length. The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom impresses with its puzzle design, offbeat humor, and sheer style. Hopefully P.B. has more hijinks in his future, because I already miss the ol’ buttwit.

Sadly, these striking visuals only serve to exacerbate Winterbottom’s one true issue: some incredibly bland level design. For the most part, the game limits the majority of its puzzles to tiny static screens, which (accompanied by the monochromatic look) erodes the player’s willingness to continue. Puzzle fans will finish the 3-4 hour quest for sweets hungry for more, but others may lose their appetite before the final course arrives.
