Webgame Wednesday: Little Wheel
Most point-and-click adventures are dull affairs, rewarding blind poking more than anything. But Little Wheel is something altogether different. First of all, the story is an interesting one. You play a robot who must reactivate his mechanical brethren after centuries of deep sleep. Second of all, the shadow-puppet animation is fluid and quite gorgeous. Finally, the game itself is a great deal of fun, feeling far more interactive and action-packed than most games of this type. The whole thing won't take you ten minutes to solve, but its a satisfying little sci-fi journey.
