The first Unlock! game I played was Squeek & Sausage, and that game's characters return in this sequel, which has some joking references back to the original but which works perfectly well even if you haven't played that one. It has the same bold cartoon style of artwork, which is also reflected in the style of the puzzles.
The core of the Unlock! game system is the way it has red and blue object cards, and you can combine one of each by adding the card numbers to find the number of the card to...
A Noside Story was funny, playful, and chaotic. In this installment of Unlock!, anything could happen. This made the story interesting, but the gameplay confounding. While anything seemed plausible, each puzzle ultimately resolved to a specific, if outlandish, solution. There was a lot to love in this game, but it was entirely too frustrating.
Evil Dr. Noside is back to terrorize the town in this quirky follow up to the fun and engaging Squeak and Sausage from Unlock!
A good solid game that will give beginners a good, solid intro to the series and an enjoyable game for those more experienced.

This is a fun game in the Unlock! series, however I can see it infuriating some players. It has some crazy logic at play throughout the game. If you've not played any Unlock! games before I would recommend starting with some of their earlier games such as The Forumla.
