Tyrant Ceville might have been overthrown by the citizens of Faeryanis but he’s still a selfish, sadistic, short, sleazy bastard and no one can take that away from him. Where other adventure game heroes go out of their way to become the people’s champion and save the realm, he will do whatever it takes to make people miserable and put his boot back on their collective neck. They messed with the wrong despot and now they’re gonna pay. But before Ceville gets his revenge, he has to deal with the usurper, Basillius (who seems to be doing a better job at being evil than our anti-hero did). Vengence won’t come easy, though, since the only “army” Ceville can muster against him consists of a feeble girl and a pompous paladin.
Ceville is an witty and colorful 3d adventure game that sports a classic, intuitive point-and-click interface that will make the fans of the genre feel right at home. While the interface feels familiar, this title brings new life to adventure gaming with unique puzzles where you must control all three characters simultaneously to advance your half-pint "hero" on his quest to be the baddest despot in the land. Guide your characters through many puzzle-packed locations and prepare for tons of wicked, twisted humor along the way. Find out why people call this game a big step towards a revival of adventure games!

If you really love point and click adventure games, chances are you've played some games that are worse than this, and others which are much, much better.
The writing isn't great. Most of the comedy consists of pop culture references of one kind or another. The voice acting is decent, but nothing to write home about.
The puzzles are decent; they run the usual gamut from easyread more to unintuitive, but there aren't any that stick out in my mind as being especially clever or interesting.
The visuals are... also okay. Ceville's fairy-tale esque style has everyone looking like a caricature of whatever they're supposed to be. Sometimes it's interesting, but most of the time you'll probably be taking it for granted.
I'm given to understand that this game is better in German. If, unlike me, you speak German, perhaps that makes this game worth a try. For the rest of us, I suggest you shop around more for a good place to drop ten dollars.

I went into this adventure game with high hopes, but came away disappointed. The characters are unique and voice acted very well, but the story is dull and has a horrible ending. However, this game is meant to be a comedy more than tell a great story. While there were a few scenes that made me chuckle, for the most part it only partially succeeds in this area. There are so manyread more other great adventure games out there, it's really hard to recommend this unless you've played them all and are desperate for something else in the genre to pass your time.

A comedy adventure game with it's fair share of bugs and complete lack of laughs.
This review will be very short, very little to say about this bad game. As a point and click adventure the game is lacking in any kind of challenge, you might celebrate the lack of obscure puzzles but this game gives no challenge at all. As a comedy it is completely devoid of any humour.
So whatread more redeeming factors does the game have? Truthfully finding anything is a challenge. The graphics aren't bad and have a nice style but nothing amazing. The sound is quite passable as well.
Nothing much else to say about this exceptionally average game. You can get so much better on this site, so don't waste your money on this. Even the free games on this site are better.
