WaxWorks review

Techtite: "You must use the magical exhibits to go back to moments in time where your family had twins (you take the role of the "good" twin, searching for your evil counterpart). These areas are each quite amusing, including the foggy streets of old London (Jack the Ripper, allegedly, was an evil twin), an old mine (weird mutants!), and even ancient Egypt (your ancestors helped build the pyramids? Cool.). You could even complete these four areas in any order! Afterwards, you must use artifacts from each moment in history, and go back in time to when the witch first cursed your family, stopping it from ever happening! While the overall story is a bit of a stretch, it was certainly an inspired concept, and led to a fun experience; almost as fun as Evira II..."
