PS4 Review: Irony Curtain: From Matryoshka with Love

Putin up our verdict of this point-and-click outing…

Irony Curtain: From Matryoshka with Love is a satirical point and click inspired by the classic adventure games. It smuggles you out of your comfort zone and throws you into the middle of a Cold War spy intrigue – where there’s an even bigger game being played…

Irony Curtain is a point-and-click game set during the Cold War, it’s very tongue-in-cheek with it’s humour and it actually has a decent story that grips you from the opening scene to the end credits.

The game mechanics follow standard point-and-click games and while it doesn’t innovate or redefine the genre, it is more than good enough to stand alongside other games of the genre. The locations are well detailed, the puzzles are challenging but well thought out and the overall feel of the game is a good one.

The cartoon art style fits well within the story and satire of the Cold War. This maybe an indie game, but it’s clearly been made by people who have played plenty of point-and-click games in the past and the passion of the team shines through.

The Verdict

Irony Curtain: From Matryoshka with Love is a humorous take on the Cold War, it’s point-and-click gameplay may not reinvent the genre, but it’s still well worth pursuing.

Score: 8.0
