Anna’s Quest is a hand drawn point and click adventure game. You play as Anna on her quest to save her ill grandfather. She gets kidnapped by a wicked witch on her way to the village to buy medicine and she must escape before it is too late for both of them.

The hand drawn art style looks gorgeous!

The game’s hand drawn art style and charming aesthetics work well together to draw you into the world. It definitely is reminiscent of the old school point and click adventure games. All lines of dialogue are voice acted and while serviceable, the performances tended to be on the flat side and the tempo was too slow. It felt like voice acting from a television show aimed at very young children. It felt a bit too slow for me but that is just based off of my personal preference.

The puzzles require you to combine items correctly. There is a sort of loose logic to it but some are farfetched.

The puzzles are relatively simple and work with the silly and outlandish logic of most point and click adventure games. You walk around collecting every item you can and then try to combine items into something you can use to solve the puzzles. There is a sort of loose logic to it all, as always, but some puzzles are quite a stretch of the imagination and require thinking outside the box. Or you can just do what I usually do and try to brute force the solution by trying to combine all the items together and clicking them on everything.

While I found the voice acting to be subpar and too slow, it does have a sort of charm to it.

Overall, Anna’s Quest is a charming point and click adventure. I do feel that the pacing and tone of the dialogue is lacking but that didn’t detract too much from the game for me. The world is cute, the tone wholesome, and the puzzles are solid.
