Phenomenon: City of Cyan
Uncovering your past is one of the popular themes of the hidden object puzzle adventure genre games. And it is not necessarily a bad sign. After all it all depends on the presentation, and the tasks you are to perform. Phenomenon: City of Cyan does this job good enough to be a nice time-waister for the fans of the genre.
The audio-visuals are very well done, but you have probably seen something better if you've been into this genre for a while.
You play as Monica who wants to find out some details about her past and, more importantly, about her parents. As a result of some experiment done in her home town, the citizens of that place were all turned into some sort of creatures. That's the secret that she is to find out on her journey. She will also meet both opposition and allies with the supernatural powers among them.
That's the basic story of the game. It is presented through some detailed and clean cutscenes and some nicely done voice over. The music is not bad, but not the one to blow you mind too. The audio-visuals are very well done, but you have probably seen something better if you've been into this genre for a while.
The hidden object scenes make up a great portion of Phenomenon: City of Cyan. They are not too challenging, but quite entertaining as you interact with the scenes. The puzzles are not all familiar. Some of them require you to think and use your logic. That is one of the good things about the game - it actually makes you think.
You are going to have to use the map in the game. It shows you the tasks you are required to complete. Some fo them will take you go back to the locations later. The map is like a special part of the game, where you find some interaction too. But I will let you find that out on your own.
Phenomenon: City of Cyan has everything it takes to entertain you for a few hours even if you have lots of experience with the games of this genre.
