Our Thoughts...

This is an indie game for the Nintendo Switch which can be downloaded from the eshop on your switch. But it was originally available on iPad back in 2012.

You start off the game in a dark room with a box in the centre and a spotlight in one corner throwing light onto the box.

There is very little music to set the scene so it is hard to see where the game is going, there is a hint button in the top right of the screen which gives you guidance on what needs to be done next.

You move in to look at the top of the box and open a letter which has been left there by its creator a Victorian scientist describing something they have hidden. You follow in his footsteps throughout the episodes and find letters from him hidden within the box.

You look around all of the box looking for anything out of the ordinary or any markings that might lead to hidden compartments or new areas appearing from the box.

You collect equipment, keys etc and there are puzzles to complete throughout the levels. The challenge increases as you move through the game and you use a special lens to look for anything that can not be seen with the naked eye.

Every time you think you have discovered the secret hidden within the box something else opens or there is another challenge to overcome.

In conclusion, we have found the game to be enjoyable and challenging in equal measure and that it is well thought of and put together. But we felt that it was a little short are there are only 4 episodes which make up the game.
