This Is Not A Review: Nemezis: Mysterious Journey III

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Nemezis: Mysterious Journey III, developed by Detalion Games S.A. and published by Playway S.A. and Detalion Games S.A.
