The point-and-click room escape game Ambivalence is a member of a crowded genre. Fortunately it's just different enough to be worth your time. Instead of walking around a room turning over objects and poking your nose in every corner, your only goal is to unlock a very secure-looking door that sits right in front of you. The fun twist is that you play from both sides of the door, switching views with the click of a button. Items you find on one side do not transfer to the other, creating a unique collaboration-style atmosphere where you are your own partner.
Use the mouse to click items/areas you want to examine or use. The "About Item" button lets you examine and interact with objects in your inventory, while the "Change Side" option flips you to the other end of the door. The puzzles in Ambivalence are fairly straightforward, although there will be a few times you'll be scratching your head. You'll also have to keep an eye out for hard-to-see items and hatches, and a few times you'll just have to get lucky and click the right pixel.
Despite its minor shortcomings, Ambivalence is a satisfying and engaging entry to the point-and-click family of games.
