Ferris Mueller's Day Off

GrinnypOne of your mules has taken a sick day, but instead of staying home and recovering from whatever vague illness he claims to have, he simply wanders around town, getting into lots of adventures while leaving you in the lurch. If this sounds suspiciously like the plot of a rather well-known 80s movie it is, but it is also the basis of Glitch Games' marvelous new comedic mobile adventure, Ferris Mueller's Day Off!

Ferris Mueller's Day OffInstead of resembling Matthew Broderick, Ferris is... well, he's a mule. A green mule. And he's missing. Rather than share in Ferris' adventures, you play the suave, handsome Mr. Rooney as he attempts to track down Ferris. The game takes advantage of mobile touch screen interfaces as you tap and swipe your way through the cartoony scenery, all while seeing how many gags, puns, and old movie references you can spot. Oh, and solve a few puzzles as well.

Glitch Games, the creators of the fabulous Forever Lost series of adventures, keeps their wonderful interface from those games with the suitcase which holds all of your inventory items and the incredibly handy in-game camera. That camera can take pictures of the scenery, with the photos then available in an "album" for you to peruse or scribble on, taking the place of a traditional notebook in which to register clues.

With Ferris Mueller's Day Off Glitch Games proves that they can do more than dark, brooding, psychological horror games. The crudely drawn, bright pastel backgrounds are a lovely backdrop for the cascade of frolics, japes, and larks which infest every corner of the adventure. The puzzles are multi-layered, wicked fun, and your enjoyment will increase depending upon your tolerance for puns. Take a sick day and enjoy the adventure! Niiiiiccccccceeeee.

Hello,

Please correct text "Ferris Mueller's Day Off HD" to "Ferris Mueller's Day Off SD" on other of the Google Play links. Now text for both versions is "HD" although other refers to the SD version.

Nice review of the great game, I bought it the same day it was released.
