Description: The Toymaker’s Apprentice is a journey into the twisted world of the toymaker’s offspring and his army of evil. Growing up in a small village, the apprentice patiently learned the craft of toymaking from his adopted father. Eventually, the young boy grew an interest in the dark arts, and his subsequent toy-like manifestations grew more and more sinister. One day, the apprentice turned on his father, and unleashed his evil toys on the town, forever casting the town into darkness and enslaving its humble citizens.
Review: It has to be said ‘The Toymaker’s Apprentice’ looks more like a game long turned abandonware that anything any of us should be playing (let alone paying for). It promises this big, grand adventure, but what there is looks utterly terrible and is even worse when it comes to gameplay. This is one of those games that needs loads of work doing to it before anyone could recommend it, but I wouldn’t hold your breath on that update and work happening any time soon.
