Game Review

Little Big Adventure is an adventure game developed by Adeline Software and published by Electronic Arts in Europe. It was released by Activision under a different name in North America and Asia.

The North American release is called Relentless: Twinsen’s Adventure. Whatever you call it, the game is the same. It has received multiple ports and remasters for several platforms up to 2014. It also received a sequel in 1997 called Little Big Adventure 2 or Twinsen’s Odyssey.

Playing as Twinsen, whose world has now become a totalitarian nightmare, you find yourself in prison due to your clairvoyant dreams. Now, Twinsen must make a jailbreak and follow his prophetic dreams to save his world.

Little Big Adventure is an adventure game at its core. It uses the tried and true method of speaking with folks and finding objects to help you progress. However, it also has action and even stealth elements to it. Twinsen himself has four different ways to approach the environment: Normal mode is for primary exploration, collection, and dialogue with non-enemies; Athletic mode is for when Twinsen needs to run fast or leap; Stealth mode is for, well, stealth, and allows Twinsen to sneak past enemies; lastly, Aggressive mode is for fighting. Twinsen can use his hand-to-hand skills to punch and kick enemies into oblivion. Though many locations in the game require certain events to have occurred to access them, the game is primarily non-linear, and you can explore all you want.

Little Big Adventure was a smashing success, selling Over 500,000 copies by 1999. It is an adventure game that breaks from the norm to put you into a strange new world and keeps the dystopian future lighter than you would expect. It’s worth a play.
