EnsenaSoft has brought us a somewhat polished, point-and-click sleuthing adventure complete with a lovely soundtrack, boasting multi-lingual translations into Spanish, English, French, German and Italian. Polyglot, indeed.
In which our intrepid investigator reaches into the abyss of memory, and tries to settle once and for all the past that continues to plague him after all these years. What really happened to all of those fellow classmates that disappeared?
Solving the mystery is something that I feel would prove an invigorating provocation to those that fall into a younger demographic than I, and as such I think the sense of accomplishment would be quite satisfying. As of the writing of this review, I am recommending it for a few nieces, late childhood, early teens. Not having any offspring of my own, my expectations might be a little high. The content holds a universal appeal and is applicable to a wide segment.
I am trying to remain as spoiler-free as possible here, and will refrain from elaborating or revealing too much regarding the heart of what lies within the aging orphanage. It didn’t take me too long to complete, hence my suggestion that the game be presented to a younger audience, but it is very well thought out and presented. There was a delight at solution found for even this jaded player. If you are a younger fan of The Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew or similar YA ‘whodunit’ type of mysteries (11-16), this game is worth your time.
Please do keep in mind that my suggestions are simply that, suggestions. Do not let an age recommendation deter you. I still found that the quandaries presented held a challenge that was both lighthearted and pleasant.
