Inso is right. I am not at all used to the episodic release.
And given some time to think about it, it's not all that bad. After all, like some of you stated, if I spent 4 hours on this, it adds up to be a total of 20 hours of playtime for ~35 bucks.
But it still feels.. Well, I'm not sure how to put it.. It just feels wrong to release episode by episode this way. From a business perspective it might be both good and bad to get a feel for how the community responds before dwelling deeper into the story. Yet I can't help but feeling somewhat tricked.
Once again, this definetly has something to do with how I am used to live my life. I personally hate waiting, especially for something that I have already paid for. But then again, the per-episode-price isn't that high either.. And I did get a free episode (of Sam & Max no less) of another game. That helped.
Since I posted this thread I have played through the game 3 times, and I even considered to make a walkthrough movie and publish it on Youtube. The game is entertaining enough, aside from the flaws I stated in the OP.
I thank you all for your interest in the game and my oppinion, as well as the clearly mature audience that beats down Trolls™ with ease.
Have a good one!
