“A machine ponders its loneliness. It scans the radio spectrum for an answer to its question.”

Antenna is a short puzzle game by LWNA. You move a little robot around and re-activate the antennae which dot the landscape.

The puzzles are simple and the keys used to solve each one are displayed with the puzzle. Note, some of the puzzles are sound-based so you must have the sound turned up and you’ll have to be able to tell if one pitch is higher or lower than another. You won’t need perfect pitch, but if you’re totally tone deaf you may have problems.

The game is nice and relaxing – there’s no pressure and you can take your time.

It’s short; I completed it within half an hour, but it is free.

The only difficulty I had was actually starting the game. It comes up with a dark landscape and there’s a small white box with the letter X in it. “Great,” I thought, “an image failed to load.”  And I couldn’t do anything. The mouse did nothing. The arrow keys did nothing. The WASD keys did nothing. Comments on Steam showed other people having the same problem.

It took me awhile, but I finally figured out that the small white box was telling me to press the “X” key on the keyboard  Look at the screenshots and you’ll see how the game tells you what keys to use in each puzzle. Hey, I may be slow but at least I’m not too swift.

Once I figured that out, the game went smoothly and it was a delightful experience. I hope LWNA comes out with another game.

I have been playing adventure games since 1979 when I played "Adventure" on the DEC PDP minicomputer at work. The first adventure game I ever purchased was "Zork 1" for CP/M. I can remember the introduction of the IBM PC. I remember the invention of the microcomputer (actually, it was discovered rather than invented). I remember the invention of the minicomputer. Yes, I am an old fart. I have written 80 reviews and articles for JustAdventure starting with my review of "Bioscopia" in February of 2004. I currently own more adventure games than I will ever be able to play, let alone review. And I want more!
