Runaway: Twist of Fate delves deep into a menacing adventure with an prevailing degree of humor and a slick presentation that feels like something out of an animated movie. Twist of Fate manages to present a more balanced gameplay experience with players stepping into the shoes of our characters Brian and Gina. A Twist of Fate delivers an entertaining experience despite its wonky dialogue, illogical puzzles and loose connections with the previous releases in the series. If you haven't played the other games, then don't fret, since Twist of Fate does give players a run-down from the last game and recaps everything leading up to Brian's trial.
The puzzles in Twist of Fate entail chatting with other characters and collecting items. There are times when players must have a particular conversation or make a specific discovery before they are able to gather certain items. These puzzles are integrated extremely well with the game's plot points. Gamers are tasked with putting all of the pieces of the puzzle together in order to fulfill the main objective which is to prove that Brian didn't commit the charges he is accused of while clearing his name in the process.
