Nick_Chase__A_Detective_StoryNick Chase: A Detective Story - Perfect Detective Puzzler

Nick Chase: A Detective Story is a very neat puzzle game from GestaltGames and Big Fish Games. The wrapping of the game is very attractive and the puzzles themselves are very tasty for this genre gourmands.

 

 

The main character is one of those detectives that don't have lots of words, friends and warm feelings toward anybody. So, the story gets him to find a manuscript of Leonardo himself.

 

Nick_Chase__A_Detective_StoryThe general look of the game is very polished - everything tells you that you are playing a detective story. The graphics are in a comic book style introducing you to very interesting and charismatic characters.

 

Some of the dialogues are in color while the other ones are a story in a black-and-white comic book. This part looks a lot like the scenes from the "Sin City" movie. The main character - Detective Chase - is so very good.

 

He is one of those detectives that don't have lots of words, friends and warm feelings toward anybody. So, the story gets him to find a manuscript of Leonardo himself.

 

Nick_Chase__A_Detective_StoryThis jobs takes him to different places and different people. For you this means lots of puzzles of all kinds. These include hidden object games, jigsaw puzzles, finding and using some items on the scene to proceed, swapping games, and much more...

 

In each scene you are to find something, most of the times, it's items that are somehow related to the story and can be used somehow in the game. The task for every step is given in the bottom of a picture.

 

Sometimes it's not that obvious what to do next, so some comments of the detective or the descriptions that appear near the object can be a great help. There are also some mini-games like jigsaw or swapping games.

There are also out-of-game mini-games. They are not related to the story at all, but they are fun to play. Both are ricochet-based where you compete against the computer. 

 

The game seems to be so perfect with the combination of the task and story and the audio-visuals and the challenge level.
