Have you ever wanted to play a fictional exterminator with a small wallaby purple bear sidekick whose fights are relied upon to save a town from anthropomorphic bed bugs? Of course you have! Wait, are you sure because The Ballads of Reemus: When the Bed Bites would be perfect for you. Playing as the beer jut toting exterminator, Reemus, you must solve all the world’s infestation problems. Using those ever popular point and click mechanics you’re out to save the medieval town from destruction.The game is based on the web game/series, The Several Journeys of Reemus, which is a throwback to the old LucasArts adventure games of the 1990s. Developed by the original series’ designers and animation, The Ballads of Reemus is filled with all sorts of crazy predicaments and puzzles that need similar tactics to the rubber chicken with the pulley in the middle (made famous by the older adventure games).Technically, The Ballads of Reemus isn’t going to crush your PC, but it is filled with a slew of different environments to puzzle through so there’s no loss in variation to keep your eyes occupied. Let me be frank, these puzzles will keep you guessing.
