Meet the Crew
The five time travelling scientists known collectively as the Helmholtz Resonators are an odd bunch. They can each play the bass, guitar, drums and keyboards, conduct science, and travel through time, yet they are each prone to personality flaws. Let me explain:
Taking the title of Head Chorister, Garland assumes command of top-line vocals most of the time with some notable exceptions. This maybe because he likes to be his own biggest critic, only to then give himself glowing reviews. Garland is a stickler for tidiness, in fact, his motto is “PUT THAT BACK WHERE IT BELONGS!”.
The most mysterious and adventurous Resonator. Plays just about any musical instrument and understands any scientific advice. Take charge of capturing the audio signal generated by the group to whichever format is prevalent to the era in which they find themselves.
No one has every been able to pin down exactly what Carlton does. Obsesses over finding a link between science and mysticism but only ever seems to be proving a link between alcohol and bad decisions. Plays guitar, synthesizers and supplies baritone vocals. Prefers to do anything but actual, tangible work, proclaims he was born with a rare disease called ‘Cannotbearseditus’.
If Frithel could change every choice to include the suffix ‘or science?’ he would always choose the latter. This man is obsessed with science – he lives, breathes, digests and inserts science. He carasses, high fives and smooches science, he… okay you get the picture. Also plays Drums, loves the Bee Gees and spoken word poetry… in a sciencey kind of way.
Auto is short for Automaton, and is the groups robotic aid and protector. Over time he has developed a fondness for Carlton, due to the time that Mr. Breezy has invested in playing with Auto. From darts, to movies, to arcade machines and to the definite chagrin of the other chaps, as this reduces the time that Auto could be tidying, computing and generally busying himself around the ship in a non-creepy android going-to-kill-all-humans way.
Chladni is in charge of sub 400hz vibrations and is a celebrated player of the Low Frequency Guitar. His motto is “Nimble of finger – nimble of mind!”. Plus, he can’t keep his mind off the ladies and sees himself as some sort of lothario, of which his motto is also “Nimble of finger – nimble of
“I can tell you that The Mystery of Woolley Mountain is delightful, will get you laughing, challenging with its puzzles, and chock-full of quality. If you’re looking for a point-and-click to really take your time and enjoy, no doubt The Mystery of Woolley Mountain is going to be an adventure for you!”
4/5 – Entertainment Focus
“If you fancy time travelling in a top hat or thwarting evildoers with style, wit and only the occasional pratfall, you would do well to board the Crystal Submarine and set sail for Woolley Mountain.”
3.5/5 – Adventure Gamers
“The Mystery of Woolley Mountain is an Indie gem of a game and one that I’m glad I spent the time to complete. It’s a game that makes you appreciate the time, love and dedication that goes into making a computer game.”
4/5 – Rapid Reviewsmind!”.
Why This Game Stands Out
Fun and mystery is around every corner. If you are a big time fan of old school point and click games this is for you. Also it is family friendly so invite the kids!
