Adventure, platformer, action and more!
In The City of Lost Children you play one of the children of the underground world, the same world that the movie had produced. Yes, it's a well executed game, with beautiful 3D graphics. It's not surprising, since the game was released on the Play Station first, and it kind of feels that way, with beautiful 3D statics, animations and more. As Miette, the protagonist, you have to steal, at first; you are a stealing child; but then the plot thickens, and you find yourself in a really weird scenario, which I'd rather not spoil. Suffice to say that if you've seen the movie, there are some similar branching stories in the game, but you don't get exactly the same deal, which is why, plot wise, let alone adventure game per se wise, you've going to like this. And so, from the humble stealing gameplay, you slowly move on and get more done, uncover new plot lines and more things, and the game gets thicker and better! So, definitely worth it, so give it a go. A good alternative is Sanitarium, as the dark world of this one somehow shares threads, though in the later the level of weirdness is definitely pumped up a lot more. So give them both a try and have them downloaded and ready to go!
