Reversion, or to be precise the first episode of Reversion, is a freeware point-and-click adventure from Argentina. Now, as one of the best horror adventures I've ever played, Scratches, was of the same origin, I wasn't surprised to discover that Reversion is a very interesting game indeed.
What, on the other hand, was actually surprising for a freeware offering was the fact that Reversion sports beautiful, high-resolution 2D graphics that, though slightly lacking in the animation department, are a (detailed) joy to behold. Add a full (and fully subtitled in English) Spanish voice-over, a sleek interface, hundreds of things to click on, relatively taxing yet logical puzzles, splashes of delightfully odd humor and a particularly engaging plot and, well, you have a game fans of the genre simply can't afford to miss.
Mind you, Reversion isn't without its translation problems and that font the devs have chosen is pretty tiring, but don't let these minor niggles stop you from enjoying a point-and-clicker set in post-apocalyptic Buenos Aires.
