In Crossworlds: The Flying City, players are submerged in G5's newest world, solving puzzles and mysteries at the same time.
Much like most of G5's games, Crossworlds follows a silmilar path, finding items and figure out mini-game puzzles. Most of the gameplay is straightforward, and it's simple nature is fun for all ages to play.
In Crossworlds, you play as Monika, the daughter of scientist, Professor Dumbdoor (no connection to Harry Potter) who builds a teleporter that blasts him into another world. After Monika finds out that Dumbdoor is stuck in another world, she sets on a quest to local him.
The first world that Monika ends up in is Robo City, the post-apocalyptic robot world, where most of civilization is destroyed. Without giving too much away, it's safe to say you will encounter some pretty comical characters here. Following Robo City is the River World where the player must solve their way around a mysterious circumstance. The third and final world Monika travels to is The Flying City, which is where things get a little tricky as it is the final chapter.
For the most part, Crossworlds is a pretty simple. If you're a fan G5's games or the genre, you know the drill. If there's a locked door, you'll need to locate it. If there's a valve needed to operate a machine; search and retrieve. With that being said, the game does become repetitive, which should be clear as this game's structure isn't that original.
The graphics and visuals look decent enough as there isn't much motion going around in this game. There are times when the background of the levels are pretty eye-catching but that only happens a few times in this game. Nothing that spectacular is going on for Crossworlds in this category. As well, the music score of this game isn't very exciting either. Each of the worlds have their own tunes, and for the most part they are just background music that isn't worth noting.
As Crossworld's is a hidden objective point-and-click game, nothing that flashy or engaging happens. It sticks to traditional gameplay with the occasional neat little surprise. Hardcore fan's of the genre should probably look for something else a little more complex, but everyone else might get a kick out of this short game. When it's all said and done, Crossworlds is just another so-so addition to G5's long catalogue of the same genre specific games, with a few pretty cool surprising along the way.
