App description: Valdo, an ambitious young apprentice working for Leonardo Da Vinci's disciple, Francesco, is least happy when the scholar suddenly dismisses him. However, shortly afterwards, he receives a letter from a mysterious patron, asking him to locate one of the great master's missing codices.

To gain access to Da Vinci's last residence, the Manoir du Cloux near Ambroise, Valdo tells its new inhabitant, a courtesan by the name of Babou de la Bourdaisière, that he is Francesco Melzi's apprentice and that he wishes to examine the inventions that still remain on the estate.
Under this cover, he starts to scour the estate: Babou's bedroom, Leonardo's workshop, the grounds, and dovecot, leaving no stone unturned. In the course of his investigations, he encounters a wide array of intriguing characters: Saturnin, a suspicious looking guardian, as well as the King of France himself.

To complete his mission, he has to solve a series of enigmas set by the great master himself. On the trail of the genious, Valdo is no more aware of the secrets he is about to unveil as the danger lurking in store for him.

Features:
- The first game game about the life of Leonardo Da Vinci giving players the opportunity to penetrate the hidden enigmas of his work.
- A fascinating quest full of risks, new developments and discoveries.
- Intuitive handling and interface.
- Dozens of puzzles and enigmas based on the artist's major work: the Mona Lisa, the flying machine, the Battle of Anghiari, Saint John the Baptist.
- An exclusive partnership with the Clos Lucé, the last residence and now official museum of Da Vinci, a guarante of highly detailed historical respect.
- Graphics of stunning realism and beauty: the Clos Lucé perfectly modelled in 3D.

This does look pretty interesting. Though this genre is not my favorite, I do seem to play a lot of them. However, I don't have enough free space on my iPad now for that file size.

Bought the game. Big file size, liking it though. It has very good production quality runs very smooth and has pretty good textures in-game as perhaps we've become accustomed to with such others as Dracula and Mysterious Island which came before. Better subject matter for me here personally than with those 2 games mentioned. Haven't gotten too far in but looking forward to doing so over the weekend. I won't be able to answer any questions for you lot as I'm finished playing for now but I would say it's a solid purchase at this price point. -Go for it.

Smart pricing

I have been curious about the other games from this developer, but the subject matter here is the best so far in my eyes. Still, that isn't what made me hit the buy button.

I'd like to thank the company for their approach toward early adopter pricing. I didn't hesitate after seeing that this was an introductory price, and I hope more devs take this approach as opposed to the less popular (*cough*EA*cough*) model.

Hi everybody,

We discovered that the AppStore version is only in english even if all the localized files are bundled. An update have been submitted to Apple, and we hope to see it online this week.
We're sorry for this bug, but we have no way to test the AppStore version before the release.
