App description: A retro-style point and click adventure game in space! Eat some sandwiches and save the galaxy!

Bik follows a young boy who is abducted by aliens while on a camping trip. After joining forces with two friendly alien mercenaries, Bik escapes from his abductors and tries to find his way home.

Along the way, Bik and his newfound friends outsmart hijackers, (eat some brownies), accept a perilous mission to find a missing alien, (make some sandwiches), foil a dastardly plot by an evil corporate empire, (argue with disgruntled robots), and save a planet on the brink of destruction.

A complete story from start to end!

-RETRO: 4 out of 5 stars!
-Super Game D 4.5 out of 5 stars!
-Gamezebo 4 out of 5 stars!
-RPGFan: 80%


"A charming adventure game throwback and well worth a play for fans of the genre."
-Gamezebo

"After all, it's one thing to make a game that looks retro, but it's another to make a game that's good and just happens to follow a classic aesthetic. Lucky for me, Bik is just such a game. "
-RPGFan

"The dialogue is just superb in Bik, which always helps you invest in characters, and the standard is up there with Lucasarts or Sierras early efforts. This is not something I say lightly, having been initiated into the genre through Day of the Tentacle."
-Super Game Droid

"I opened up my inventory, clicked on a bottle of booze, and then clicked on a dog in the scene. 'Clearly Bik is in good hands for this adventure.' was the message displayed. At that early moment I was sure Bik was going to be a pretty good game.
-RETRO

"A good old fashioned wholesome adventure game...featuring lots of murder!"
-Some Guys PC Gaming Adventures

For what it's worth, during the next ~3 days Bik on PC/Mac (DRM free, Desura) and Android is part of a pay what you will ($1 minimum) bundle on Groupees right now. I purchased it yesterday but haven't played Bik yet. Looks like it's worth a double dip on iOS especially with launch discount.

Mikepinto, could you tell us how long an average play through might be? Also, is there any replayability? (I know, an extreme rarity in adventure games)

For the beta testers the range of time was 4hr:30min to 7hr. It really depends on if you read everything plus how quickly you figure out the puzzles.

As for replay value, there is a lot of dialogue and objects to look at that you could easily miss on one playthrough. For instance, looking at your main character at different times and places will produce different reactions.

I look at adventure games more like a movie or book that you can take your time in and explore the environments. I personally watch movies more than once and I also play adventure games more than once despite knowing the outcome.

Hope that answers your question!
