Usual Kheops fare

Nostradamus: The Last Prophecy was developed by Kheops Studio among others, and it's the usual Kheops fare. If you've already played some of their previous games, you'll know what to expect here. i.e. light on story, but excellent puzzles.

If you're looking strong story telling and vibrant characters, you won't find it here. The story is little more than a vehicle for the puzzles, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

The puzzles are where the game shines. Like many of Kheops' previous games, there is a huge focus on being able to combine and deconstruct items to solve puzzles, and on alternate solutions. There are also various interesting apparatus in Nostradmus' workshop for you to figure out and use. The Madeline/Cesar gameplay element doesn't really add much to the game though, it's little more than a toggle needing to be switched back and forth to progress.

Overall it's a great puzzler with a weak story. If you love your puzzles, I highly recommend it!
