App description: - Last King of Africa - Episode 1: Madargane

Benot Sokal's masterpiece finally adapted for the iPhone.

A great, mysterious adventure filled with twists and turns that will lead you to the heart of the wonderful imaginary country of Maurania. Exciting riddles will make you progress in an extraordinary story with a captivating storyline.

After her plane crashes, a young woman called Ann Smith wakes up in the hospital of Madargane, a city located North of the African country of Maurania.

Who is she? What did she come to do here? Why do all those who meet her speak fearfully of king Rodon, dictator and absolute maser of Maurania? And what is the true role of the black leopard that is strangely connected to Ann?

mmmh, while this looks really interesting,
anyone noticed that there are only beautiful women and only fat, bloated, ugly guys as NPCs?

...a city located North of the African country of Maurania...
So it's in a different country then?
A city north of a country must be a city in another country...

(Please note, these are all my own opinions. Don't get all over my ass and lambast me for having an opinion different to yours, mmmkay?)

The pc version of this game is called Paradise. The name was changed to Last King of Africa when it was released for Nintendo.

I can hardly wait for it to reach the US store, but am disappointed that it will be episodic . I prefer purchasing the entire game in one go.

I played it through on the pc and really enjoyed it. It's a classic adventure game with clever puzzles and the graphics are typical Sokal (i.e. beautiful). If you google Paradise game, you can get an idea of what it's about.

I wonder if this means that Syberia is not far behind
