Elemental adventure game

Classical point-and-click adventure. The story starts pretty good, but it turns into a confusing plot halfway into the game. The interface is good. the visuals are fine for its age. However, the voice acting is horrible and most part of the puzzles are just trial and error. Basically, it is similar to The Longest Journey, only that Secret Files is worse.

A decent adventure game

Although the story starts off pretty good, it turns into a sack of "what's happening" quite soon halfway into the game. Some of the dialogues made me wonder if the developers even looked / listened to it themselves. Worst part about the game must be some of the puzzles, where there's absolutely no hint, just trial and error and the solution is something rather over-the-top. At some point you even have to go back to the very beginning to pick something up that has never been there before. The ending is a bit "meh" as if they ran out of ideas. Another thing that had me groan a few times is the walking speed which cannot be adjusted. The graphics look pretty decent for its time and there's plenty of original stuff in there as well. All in all, it's a very decent point and click game which has the continue-to-play value, but mostly a one-time-experience.

A very good adventure game!

The first Secret Files was a very good point and click adventure. First of all, the plot is very interesting, based on the 1908 explosion of Tunguska, of course. The, graphic is very good: locations are very detailed, with some nice atmospheric effects. You will travel around the world, using two characters (Nina and Max) and solving logical puzzles. To help you on your quest, you can show the hotspot using your spacebar. This version of the game includes the patch released from Animation Arts with the "extended" ending. If you've never played a Secret Files, here's well all begin!

Not bad.

I usually dont play adventure games, but I managed to get my hands on this game and played it for a little while. This point and click follows the guidelines of those classic types of game. The game is not that hard and most puzzles are logical.

I really love the graphics though. You could stay on a single screen and observe it for a long time, just looking at all the details and hearing the sound effects which transports you into the scene.

Good little adventure game. Maybe a bit expansive.
