Coronation Street: The Mystery of the Missing Hotpot Recipe
"A travesty so great that the mere thought of it is detestable. It ravishes in the pain and suffering of others and will rest at nothing until it has fiendishly sucked all the divine souls of the fortunate. It stands alone with over 2000 years of bafflement and hunger trailing in its wake, as it pleasurably feasts on the souls and the avid inquisitive minds of the undeserved."— Caddicarus
Coronation Street: The Mystery of the Missing Hotpot Recipe is a 2011 video game released in 2011, based on the extremely long-running British soap opera of the same name. Developed and published by British studio Avanquest Software.
Why It Sucks
- Essentially it is a reskin of 1912 Titanic Mystery.
- Poor presentation. Cutscenes are just pictures and text, with no music, voice acting, or animations of any kind.
- Terrible and paper thin plot.
- There are only two occasions in the whole game where music plays: The Main Menu, and whenever you click the Hint button.
- Very low difficulty, with no lives or time limit. The only thing that happens as punishment is losing control of the mouse for a few seconds.
- Some of the objects are placed in dumb locations, making them hard to find. Also, there is a fan in the first level that is practically invisible because it has the same colors as the background.
- The Hint system can be abused since there is no limit to the number of times it can be used, aside from a small cooldown. Since there is no time limit, you can just do nothing until you can use a hint again.
- There is a pipe minigame that is extremely easy. And the second time around, it doesn't change.
