"And I want to be a pir... a gold digger!"

Fester Mudd: Episode I is a point-and-click adventure inspired by the classic of this genre

NOTE: This is just a limited-free version. Players can't leave the town unless they upgrade to the full version.

Look at the screenshots up there. Did you feel it? If you felt like butterflies in the stomach means that you played one (or all) of the classic point-and-click adventure games such a Monkey Island, Indiana Jones: The fate of Atlantis, Loom or The Day of the Tentacle. Legendary games that kept forever the spirit of that times.

However, thanks to Replay Games Inc. we can enjoy again - this time in our mobile devices - an old-school adventure, one of those that combines challenging puzzles, hours of hilarious dialogues and retro pixelated graphics.

Fester Mudd isn't about becoming a pirate or discovering the mysteries of Atlantis Island. It is set in the Far West, actually, on the gold-digging times. Actually, the story starts when Mudd receives a letter from his brother in which he's told his brother found gold and he needs Mudd's help to collect all of it. From that moment, he's got involved on an adventure that will bring him through old saloons, stables, desert, canyons and mines; with dozens of characters and items to collect and combine.

Point and click isn't the most comfortable way to control characters on a mobile platform though, specially if the screen isn't too large. However, keeping this control system enables Fester Mudd keeping the essence of the classics. Same can be said about graphics: pixelated retro graphics with that typical adventure scenery makes all the difference.

In brief, if you are passionate of retro adventures, you shouldn't miss this one: graphics, control system, humor and lots of references to the classics.

Developer's original description available here
Set in Wild West, FESTER MUDD: CURSE OF THE GOLD is a three-part comic saga of exploration, reunion, and redemption...and a love letter to the classic adventure games of the 90s!

Roused from a life of sloth to reunite with his long-lost brother in search of unimaginable riches, reluctant hero Fester Mudd somehow manages to be intrepid but cowardly, ambitious yet lazy, dimwitted but brilliant.

In Episode 1, Fester hits the trail to join his brother, Bud, in the downtrodden town of Loamsmouth. But when Bud is found to have mysteriously vanished, Fester realizes that the journey will be far longer and more treacherous than he bargained for...and he must enlist the aid of an experienced gunslinger to help him make his way through Indian territory to track down both his missing brother and the gold that awaits them both!

But gunslingers don't come cheap...and Fester must find a way to convince him to join him on the perilous quest.

This Episode sees Fester exploring Loamsmouth and surrounding territories. Along the way, he'll meet and deal with an assortment of Old West roughnecks, flim-flammers, and other larger-than-life characters...and give adventure game fans a huge blast from the past!

★ Lush graphics and vivid sound effects that bring the Old West to life!
★ Classic adventuring interface allowing for sophisticated interactions!
★ Branching dialogues!
★ Dozens of classic inventory-style puzzles!
★ Overhead map for quick travel between regions!
★ An original soundtrack that perfectly evokes the era of Old West and Old School Adventure Games!
★ Cliffhanger ending that teases the next game in the series!
★ Countless jokes, gags, and tips-of-the-hat to the golden-age adventures of Sierra and LucasArts!

    Probably the closest game I've found in terms of play and humour to Monkey Island. My only criticism is that even once you buy the full game it's too short. Looking forward to the next installment all the same though!

    Loved this game. I haven't had a problem with it crashing like people have said. Free version is just a trial but $3 is not bad at all for this game. I rarely pay for games but I think this is worth it if you like old style point and click style- this is the best I have found.

    I liked the old school feel and the funny & witty dialogues and character comments. However, the game kept crashing every time I tried to leave town, and sometimes right after I opened the app. Thanks to Crissy Simic's review, I learned that it happens when Wi-Fi/mobile data is off, because we'll need to pay to play the entire episode. This makes me think that the app description's misleading & th

    The reason some people THINK this game crashes when walking to the plains is because their mobile data must be off. If your mobile data is on you will see the reason that the game stops there is because you need to purchase the game to play on beyond that point.
