An adventure mystery on a space station
The sequel to Murder in Venice
takes you from the confines of a brick and mortar city into space, on a space station where a crime has happened. Thus, you have to use your entire arsenal of deductive, exploration and Sherlock Holmes wits to find out how to solve the mystery. The space station is a really cool place and there are lots of places to explore. Yep, it's not a game about realism and space, so don't expect to be flowing around, but, instead, you will mostly focus on your mouse and keyboard mostly controlled adventuring. The game is very easy to interact with, which is why it feels so great. Plus, the VGA graphics make it so that you have no issues running about and understating what it is that you are looking at. Yep, it's still a sidescroller kind of game 90 percent of the time, but that won't keep you away from having fun. The game will remind you of Police Quest
, as it surely plays like a Police Quest in space, and, for all intents and purposes feels like a great adventure. You can use lots of gadgets and instruments which aids to the atmosphere, and even if the writing and plot is not the best it could have been, you're still going to have a great time.
