Skip Around the World - India

DoraCarmel Games tends to be known for short, happily silly point-and-click adventures, but Skip Around the World - Finland was a surprisingly educational romp through actual real world locations that paid homage to local culture and landmarks while having fun with itself. Skip Around the World - India has now arrived, and a familiar fellow has just landed in the country and is desperate for a taste of some local cuisine from one of the best restaurants in the area. Too bad he ignores the sign out front and winds up getting the owner's samosas eaten... and those samosas were to be presented to the Prime Minister! Skip promises to set things right and save the owner's reputation, and he's off looking to gather all the ingredients to make new ones. If only the markets weren't all closed...

As usual, just click on things and people to interact as you move around the map. Your cursor will typically change whenever it passes over something useable, and don't forget to try combining items in your inventory! Skip literally needs to trot all over the country looking for the ingredients for those precious samosas, and in the process, you'll visit a lot of iconic landmarks and learn a little bit about the country and its culture. Skip seems to know the bare basics, so you'll pick things up through him as you go, as he learns about various Indian foods, spies some famous Bollywood actors and actresses (and helps out a fictional one), and more. Most of the puzzles simply come down to figuring out what somebody needs and bringing it to them, which isn't particularly difficult once you've visited everywhere you can go. Where Skip Around the World - India stands out is in its presentation, as it weaves in tidbits of knowledge throughout the gameplay that highlight pieces of Indian culture and history, while also having some lovely scenery to boot. You'll have to look up a lot of the terms and locations if you want to learn more about them, however, since the game tends to just toss out names and places without much else, and it's still on the short side, and players looking for more involved puzzles might be disappointed. But for a brief, fun, lighthearted visit to another country, Skip Around the World - India is worth a play, and hopefully not the last of Skip's globetrotting adventures we'll see.

Quite frankly a mediocre and ignorant game, perpetuating stereotypes of snake charmers (illegal in India) and wandering cows.

Note that the previous installment was just as chock-full of stereotypes... about Finland. The difference is, it's not considered politically incorrect to propagate stereotypes about Finland.

I got the

Lassi

but don't know where to do from there. The walkthrough won't load for me either.

      Wants:

      This takes some guessing, and a healthy dose of stereotypes

      That type of basket should look familiar.

      It's a snake charmer's basket; the guy needs a snake charmer's pipe.

      How convenient, then, that that's exactly what the tourist lady in New Delhi gave you (it's called a Bansuri).

      Gives:

      Mango

    • Kid
      Wants:

      free tour guide coupon

    Other items: none

  • Mumbai (Bollywood)

    • Gate guard
      Wants:

      clothes for his elephant

      Gives:

      Access to the studio

    • Yash Aagrwal
      Wants (1):

      his favorite drink

      Remember what the game said about lassi back at the restaurant?

      Use the ladle on the glass next to his hammock. (Try not to gag at the thought of where it came from.)

      Gives (1):

      keys to the trailer

      Wants (2):

      Rasgulla

      Kunal (the star-struck kid in Amritsar) must've known exactly what his idol would want.
