Skinny Walkthrough

Skinny is one of the most unique and most entertaining adventure games online. With dark but interesting looking graphics and lots of missions to keep you entertained, there is very little about this game adventure game fans will be able to find fault with. While the basic premise of seeking out missions and trying to complete those missions isn't a terribly uncommon one in the world of online adventure games, this one still stands out from the pack simply because it is so different. There is a decent level of interaction with the other characters in the game but most of the focus in this one is on the actual game itself and not the little extras that come along with it.

The first few missions in Skinny are very straightforward, easy to understand and easy to complete. For more experienced adventure games that's going to seem like a drawback but it really isn't. The simple introduction to the game allows you to really get used to the controls you'll be using and get familiar with what the game is going to be asking of you. Take your time to make the most of those early levels. When things start getting more difficult in later missions you're going to be glad you allowed yourself a little practice time.

The best way to do well in Skinny is to pay careful attention to what people tell you when you interact with them. While not everything you read from everyone will have a significant impact on your mission, some of it will. It's easy to miss important information simply by not paying attention. It's also important that you don't rush through the game. Take your time and enjoy the graphics. Enjoy the sounds and most importantly enjoy the game. If you rush, you will miss something important which will make it hard to complete your missions. As far as difficult adventure games go, this one is among the more relaxing and laid back options out there. Try to remember to appreciate that.

Although Skinny is far more laid back than many of the other adventure games online, it still offers a great challenge which means it can also be a bit frustrating. The thing to remember with this one is that there isn't a single mission in this game that can't be beaten. When you're really struggling with a mission, look at what the mission is asking of you and try to figure out what it is that you're not seeing. There is a solution. It may just take a little creative thinking to find what that solution is. Look at your surroundings carefully. Chances are there is something on the game screen that you're not seeing. Often times, the solution is right in front of you but you're not looking at the problem the right way. If you're absolutely stuck and you've been all over the level looking for a way to complete a mission, walk away from the game for a little while and forget about it. Do something else. When you're ready, come back to the game and give it another shot. Sometimes all it takes is a little distance from the game for you to be able to see the solution.

Overall, Skinny is an excellent adventure game that will keep you coming back for more. Don't give up if you're stuck on a mission. Keep playing until you beat it. It is possible for any player of any skill or experience level to beat this game. Keep going until you get it and don't let frustration win. The ending of the game is definitely worth it. Although things do get harder as you progress, the solution is always there. If you're a fan of adventure games or just fun, engrossing games in general, this is one you absolutely have to play. You'll be glad you took a chance on it.
