The Flash Game You Can’t Afford To Miss! – Ib

I’m not too fond of flash games–many lack the basic necessities that eventually will congeal into a hearty experience, the most prevalent being character development, storyline, and creativity.  Often times my high expectations fall so very short after playing through a level or two, and I, usually, quit barely half-way into the vexing journey. This time I was surprised with a pleasant tale, one magically told of a girl lost within the confines of a fantastical art gallery.

A lass, none other than our protagonist, Ib, graces the gloomy opening screen; however, the mood isn’t so much damper as it is eerie and hauntingly beautiful, due much in part to the background music. This inaugural tune sets the standard for the remainder of the game’s soundtrack indefinitely.

Without revealing too much right off the bat, this young lady stumbles into another, bizarre world via the exhibits on display, only to find herself alone, frightened, and completely helpless to the guile of the creatures and objects around her. Think of it like Night at the Museum, except, well, the wandering sculptures vie for your blood and the odd paintings have a knack for spitting at you. Yes! Just like that!
