This point and click adventure game was originally released for PC in 1998 and was well received, earning high praise for its characters, story and humor. Taking on the role of Manny Calavera, undead travel agent in the land of the dead, players must complete puzzle and fulfill objectives to help send the souls of the recently departed to the ninth underworld. Some puzzles take the familiar point and click formula of finding objects and using them in the right way while other are carried out through dialogue, with players needing to ask the right questions and prod the correct buttons to discover new information or convince a reluctant NPC help them out. The remastered edition has also received an update to the visuals, providing Manny and co with smooth new textures, and the original control system translates well to the new tap based mechanics. The game retains the original sound track, keeping the atmosphere of the original, and the story remains unchanged, complete with all eccentrics souls and dark humor it was praised for. With a great story, challenging puzzles, and memorable characters Grim Fandango will entertain fans of classic adventures games or anybody looking for a satisfying story with boat load of laughs.
