What a journey! Well quite "literally". Around the World! In 80 days - or less. And sometimes even more, but we shall not dwell on that too long. At this point I can't even say how many times I did travel all around the world, but… it's been a lot! And since some Achievements exclude each other… well, even a few more restarts without going to the end, bc why would I, right? Oh, unless I need different items on the market or different prizes. Bc both change every time you play the game. No, not quite. It doesn't change if you only restart. You have to reach London - doesn't rly matter if you make it in time or if not. You just have to get there. So once that is done, you get different things to work with. Honestly? Buying wine in Paris and getting the most out of it in Vienna, was always the best thing for me. Everything else at the start wasn't that much in my favour, but whatever.
Funnily enough I had trouble killing Monsieur Fogg off. I had him a couple of times on 0 health, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's dead. Sometimes you're just stuck with him being on 0 until you give in and get him a doctor. In the end I made him freeze to death, there was no other way - sry, Monsieur Fogg, I would have rather given you a death somewhere warm and pretty.
I never managed to see all places - sad truth. But I've seen a lot. I also learned, that while one might travel the whole world, one doesn't automatically see everything. And least of all a closer look. We had a tight schedule, no idling around! Still one can fall in love in a couple of days and get to be with that love in the end. Which is pretty. I didn't figure out how to make Monsieur Fogg fall in love with Passepartout though. Shame.
By the end I… was… maybe a little annoyed by the game. It might have taken me forever to figure out the rext speed is adjustable. Sadly the time not. Well not rly. You can speed things up in a town, but while traveling… not so much.
Recommendation: Yes, also you can totally finish this in…. a couple of hours? Not much rly, can't say how much exactly though.
