To play or not to play? That's a good question! And the answer is yes! Otherwise, you'll miss the hilarity that ensues when a man from the future accidentally hits Hamlet with his time machine and must set out in his place to rescue Ophelia!

*****************************************
WHAT THE MEDIA IS SAYING ABOUT THE PC VERSION:
GAMEZEBO.com: "Hamlet is certainly a game that marches to the beat of its own drum, and as a result, you'll be chuckling at its humor and creativity."
CLASSIC GAME ROOM.com: "Point-and-click adventuring at its finest. Shakespeare at its weirdest."
GAME CRITICS.com: "Perfectly bizarre in every way. I can't say I've ever seen anything quite like it."
*****************************************

Packed with tricky puzzles, gut-busting humor and unrestrained creativity, Hamlet is a cure for boredom and a work out for your brain. By the time you save Ophelia and defeat the evil King Claudius, you'll feel like you've earned an adventure gaming badge of honor!

There's also iPad version of this game! Check the App Store!

abutova's comments:
Let the mayhem and hilarity begin!
Hamlet is probably the most extraordinary game for iPhone you've seen lately. It's an old school styled quest with highly amusing graphics, great humor, extraordinary story line and really difficult puzzles.
Honesty, Hamlet is not a long game. But try to beat all the levels without Googling the walkthrough (I promise you'll want to do that!), and you'll have lots of fun!

Also available for iPad.

I think anyone who tries the Lite version and doesn't end up buying the full version is crazy. At first I wasn't too sure about the $2.99 pricetag, but s***...I wanna see what happens next! =P

EDIT: Well, a little searching does you good. Looks like this is a port of the PC version from last year. Here's a review from IGN (http://pc.ign.com/articles/108/1082582p1.html). Pretty good. *thumbs up*

Just curious, is Retina Display support planned for an update?

Alawar? Yikes... Another must-buy - dowmloading now...

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Yeah, it didn't work for me either. Searching for it manually in the App Store works though.
