They released on PS 3 long ago, but not with many good reviews. it's like 3 stars rating. Its gameplay's varied, its story OK. BTW, it's point-and-click game.

I quite enjoyed it on the 360, though console Point n Clicks are few and far between. The psuedo-steampunk-noirish setting was interesting but the QTEs let it down. Not sure how that will translate to iPad but it could be worth trying out.

Somebody familiar with the original will need to check the game out and provide feedback as to the integrity of this version, because if there is one thing you can count on with Microids, it's that the iOS port of any given adventure game will have had anywhere from a quarter to a third of the puzzles and story hamfistedly yanked out.

Yeah that's my fear too. I haven't played this one yet but I got it and the sequel for PC in a recent game bundle. I've played a couple of Lexis Numrique's games in the past and really liked their style so despite the not-great reviews I think I'd still dig this.

I seem to remember from early playstation days that Microids made very mediocre games and this doesn't seem to have changed! You'd think that over time you would improve your product, but not these people. They've stuck with mediocrity and mean to go on!
