Review: While John Lazarus – Episode 1: Dead Man’s Origin (no, there is and most probably will be no more episodes) isn’t the best looking game and it isn’t the best storyline, I still found myself enjoying it from start to finish (which was just under 1 hour). It’s the whole surreal environments that kept me going as I wanted (or needed) to know what was around the next corner. At its heart, it is a puzzle room style game, but there are also shooting and running sections to enjoy. I don’t think it is worth the current £7.19 aksing price, but I would be happy to pay a few quid for it, so do wait for a sale before giving it a go.
