Note : Please take these game reviews with a good chunk of salt. They are about my personal experience with a game ; yours might be very different.
Also, I have a professional interest in figuring out what works in a game and what doesn't. I know from experience how hard they are to make !

Nice, old-school point&click game with a 'Mateusz Skutnik' vibe.
The game that is sold on Steam is actually a remake of the web game (from way back). The port is well done, and the game itself generally has a good difficulty level. I only got stuck twice :

Through Abandoned 1 - A cube.

1) I couldn't figure out what to do with the cube (but it's logical - just observe the cube and the handles, and try touching the cube and see what happens), and

Through Abandoned 1 - A door knob.

2) I also needed a hint for the object retrieved from the white rooms ... because I didn't recognize what it was.

Some more art from the game :

Through Abandoned 1 - Dragons. Through Abandoned 1 - Choice. Through Abandoned 1 - Pipes. Through Abandoned 1 - Underground train.

In summary : "Through abandoned" is a nice little point&click game from the 'golden era' of web games. Definitely worth a try !
