Tesla's Electric Mist is now also available on the Amazon App Store as well, which means it's available on Android and Kindle Fire now.

Here's the link: Tesla's Electric Mist on Amazon

So, if you've been holding off on joining our contest because you only have Android devices, well now's your chance. Make sure to leave us a review if you get it.

Since I helped beta test I only have an ad-hoc version of the game, which basically means I can't post in iTunes no matter what. The developer was kind enough to allow me to re-post a blurb I posted about the game on a different web site, so here goes:

"While it may be true that a good tester is doing a developer a favor, I also consider it a privilege to be able to test games because it gives me a chance to play them ahead of time. I got the opportunity to help beta test this game, and I was so excited to see it finally come out. Teslaís Electric Mist involves time travelling and an experiment gone wrong (two separate events), the crux of many a good science fiction story. You start off exploring a family home and soon find yourself in Colorado Springs in the late 1800ís. The game contains more than 150 scenes to explore and dozens of puzzles to solve. There is plenty of challenge, but youíll never feel like youíve really gotten stuck anywhere. The graphics are among the best Iíve seen in an iOS adventure game, and thereís enough to do that youíll never get bored. I do wish that more of these adventure games would up the ante on NPC interaction, because thatís one thing I really enjoyed about the heyday of adventure gaming in the late 80ís and early 90ís. Other than that, this is one top notch product."

I would have just posted the link to the post but for some reason I remember reading in the forum rules that wasn't allowed. Anyway, great game, and everyone that likes adventure games should get it


By the way, the developer has seen the original post, so he knows I'm not making this up

Definetly one of the best adventure games out there, and optimized for iPhone 5!

I posted in the other thread earlier, and have now finished the game. It's a fun point-click adventure game. There are objects you pick up along the way to open doors, solve puzzles, etc. Clues are written down automatically in a notebook. The map and hint system, seen via the notebook, are well implemented.

Possible spoiler regarding small glitch: I think I found a glitch at the end, but worked around it. I had the final mist color (I only had one color left (yellow), right coil on, mist showing the right color) but the device wouldn't open. I went back to the other two coils and turned them on/off again and it opened. So, not a big deal.

Overall, a fun game that fans of point-click adventure games should enjoy.

A great point and click game with a lot of great puzzles that really had me working my brain to solve them. I love that there's no "hidden object collect x amounts of whatever" just really smart puzzle and a good story behind it all.

The game has great music, almost hauntingly so, and a lot of great content to keep the you entertained .

So guys, the contest didn't really get enough attention i guess, cause we only seem to have a handful on entries. We were hoping for at least 100 entries, and have extended the contest in hopes of that. But at this point, just to give an update, we are planning on drawing a winner around the first part of next month regardless of how many entries there are at that point. So good luck to all of you.
When we do the drawing, I'll go through and include any reviews that were posted to any of our posts on this site, since some of my posts didn't make it clear enough that you needed to post specifically in this thread. So don't worry if you posted somewhere else on accident, I'll include your entry. We only had one user who did a youtube walk-through video, so he'll be getting an extra 10 entries into the contest. It's not too late for other walk-through videos.. wink, wink.
Thanks for supporting the game, and Happy Holidays to all of you.

Happy New Year! Thank you for a promo code. I really enjoyed the challenge that awaited me. I will leave my review here.

A Gorgeous Touch-Enabled Puzzle Adventure Game.

This mystery solving adventure game will appeal to the geeky gamer. There are lots of puzzles to solve. Some knowledge of science will definitely be helpful. The colorful sceneries presented in 3 different seasons is eye popping on the iPad. The 6 different colored electrical mist (appearing in part 3 of game) is beautifully rendered and really adds to the atmosphere of the game.

There are 3 parts to this adventure. In Part 1, you figure out that you need to go back in time using Tesla's time traveling device. In Part 2, you were told that you got there too late and needed to go back further in time to fix what happened. You have to collect 6 different colored bulbs to activate the time traveling device again. In Part 3, you needed to solve 6 color-coded puzzles in the presence of the corresponding colored electrical mist to save the people of Colorado Springs.

Although the puzzles and hidden objects may be difficult at times, there is a build-in hints section to keep you going in case you get stuck. On top of that, there is a bonus mini game of sorts that you need to collect hidden items that are not needed to complete the game but will show up in the GameCenter Achievements. A must play game if you are inclined toward puzzle adventure games.

The video walkthrough by Appyshka is sped up and compressed. It may be a little hard to follow, especially in parts 2 and 3. I have created a real time walkthrough for the Tesla's Electrical Mist for those who needed more help or just wanted to see how the game look in HD video. Enjoy.

A puzzling thriller game that gets you addicted

My Review:

I always liked thrillers, especially the ones that put you into the action. This game lets you travel through time and save a town from an experiment gone wrong. It was fun and at the same time eerie, to be in a town where no one exists, to look for clues, in the hope of fixing everything, to be a hero, that's everyone's dream. This games satisfies your need to solve the problem. With 3 chapters of detective fun, the game promises to keep you glued to your device, till you can figure out what's going on and how to stop it once and for all.

To sum it up, if you like Sci-Fi and Thrillers and want to be in the action, this game is a must buy!
