The popularity of first person shooters has somehow pushed other genres into the background. This is the case with point-and click adventures, which, after years of success, seem to have disappeared.
Luckily for all adventure fans, Nikopol: Secrets of the Immortals brings a breath of fresh air to the genre with a mysterious, thrilling adventure set in a futuristic Paris. The game's whole setting has a delightful Blade Runner-like style, with darkly depressing scenarios, strange light effects and a somehow pessimistic atmosphere. The only thing that surprises me is that the game is supposed to take place in 2023, which I think is too early for urban spaceships.
Anachronisms apart, Nikopol: Secrets of the Immortals is a really intriguing adventure in the classic point-and-click style. This means that you'll have to fully explore the environment and try just about any possible combination with interactive objects and your inventory. The game is full of challenging puzzles and riddles that you'll need to solve in order to find your missing father and stop a political conspiracy.
But above all, the most outstanding element in Nikopol: Secrets of the Immortals is its graphics. The game features stunning visuals, so realistic that they make the adventure really immersive and pleasant to play.
If you like classic point-and-click adventures, you're going to love Nikopol: Secrets of the Immortals and its incredible graphics.
