Bik, A 2D Point & Click Adventure In Space

Bik is quite an interesting looking point & click adventure, and it's available for Linux. We check it out and let you know how it plays.

The graphics are pretty retro and remind me of the type of adventure games you used to get on Amiga and would probably fit right in.

I have to say I've not been a big fan of point & click adventure games since my early gaming days of playing games like Hook on the Amiga, and since then nothing in the genre has really pulled me in, but I am taking a look at Bik with a fresh mind.

It's a bit of an odd game to say the least with an odd setting, but it seems to play out quite nicely. I chuckled to myself right from the start when you can interact with a moving space sock. There's also a little Star Wars reference included in the early game which was well placed, so it takes inspiration from things I already love.

I accidentally killed myself and my engineer friend by venting oxygen trying to put out a fire, so that was a rather amusing fail that I should have seen coming! I later realised I had an oxygen mask I could use, but that didn't stop my friend from dying and so I failed again. I feel like this game is full of lots of little times where I will fail miserably at simple tasks.

It's an okay game, but it just feels a little lacking in most areas especially the animation and graphics department it just feels overly simplistic.

You can pick up a DRM free copy from their website here using the Humble Store widget. For $3.99 it's worth it for those of you wanting a little retro point & click adventure to kill some time with little puzzles, but for me it was a little lacking with such simple animations and graphics.

Also they need help getting onto Steam, so if you do like the look of it vote here. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Ah, the days of gaming on an Amiga; the last time I had FUN with a computer until I finally got smart and installed Ubuntu 8.04. Suddenly, using a computer was FUN again.

No, at the time, there weren't too many games. There was Neverwinter Nights, for which I was grateful. I discovered Crossover and wine, and was able to play GOG.com games. Then the Humble Bundles started. Then STEAM, the best thing to happen to our OS since, well, it was developed.

Actually, Bik looks more like a C=64 game than an Amiga one; Amiga game developers tried pretty hard to take advantage of the system's graphics capabilities, and were mostly successful.
