Sexy, but that's all
Fascination is an adult-themed adventure game released in 1991 by Coktel Vision, popular for its educational and action projects. Fascination began with Emmanuelle, another early game by Coktel. The story is about a business man that invented a drug that increases the desire for sex. He was killed, and you get into the possession of the drug sample. You play a girl named Doralice, a flight attendant, that has to avoid being framed for the crime. The graphics are good for that era, the design is well-outlined and contain an appealing background based on nudity, uncensored dialogues and maybe a sex scene. I say maybe because I didn't finish it, or I will let this detail unrevealed in order to get your attention into playing it. The action is based on solving puzzles, and the locations are luxurious: hotels, nightclubs,mansions. In order to solve the puzzles, you have to use your inventory of items. The missions are simple but some of them involve some eccentric ways to complete the tasks, and you wonder about the strange procedures the bad guys have to make. I will give you a hint: whenever you barge into phone numbers, dates, and other numbers, write them down or remember them because they will come in handy in the future missions. The only good thing in this game is its sexiness, but I'm afraid that's all.
