Believe it or not I was actually looking forward to playing So Blonde more than most adventure titles in 2008. Playing as an adorable and gorgeous blonde, with a slightly ditzy yet happy-go-lucky attitude. She's stranded on a forgotten island where the inhabitants are stuck and time has stopped, with an overbearing ruler controlling them. So it's up to Sunny Blonde (yes, that's really her name) to save them all. Nice 2.5D visuals and art style in somewhat of a throwback to the Monkey Island series. The graphics aren't fantastic, but art is what the game as about I guess. Okay puzzles, good story. So Blonde's only major flaw is having to go back-and-forth over the same areas more times than you can count, especially with some poor hotspots at times and the characters reluctance to respond to double-clicks to make her run. A bit more humour would have been nice. But overall it's decent.
