Little Wheel: an atmospheric point and click adventure that’s worth checking out

You gotta love point-and-click flash games. Little Wheel is a polished, story driven casual game that has a lot of character, and can be completed in a single sitting.

The story: once upon a time there was a world full of animated, lively robots, powered by the city’s main power generator.

Everything was good until a bad accident shut the power down, and the city fell into a deep sleep. A chance lightning strike on a random robot (you) 10,000 years later brought him back to life, and he sets out to restore power to the sleeping city.

The verdict: classic point and click gaming in the style of Samorost; this is pretty much what you would expect in terms of gameplay and story. The graphics, sound, and general atmosphere are moreover very pleasant and well done.

    I don’t see the attraction; I think it’s insanely crazy to spend time on this.

    to @me: is art. Is better spend time in this game that spend it in comments about something that you don’t like.

    @ me: you may be right. But I’ve spent my time on worse things than this game ;)

    I really like it! It is more an animated interactive story than a game, just like Samorost. You have to do things to bring the story further, but these puzzles are never too difficult. Yes I would say it is art.
