Corto Maltese, the secrets of Venice is a graphic adventure 2D with static screens, with a plot midway between the oneiric and the thriller, the player will have to juggle a thousand puzzle, more or less difficult, and logical challenges. Contrary to what the title might suggest, the main character will not be Corto Maltese, cartoon character success of Hugo Pratt, but an anonymous tourist victim of the events, which will find itself involved in a deadly treasure hunt to find six petals of emerald, fragments of a jewel in the allegedly most majestic and magical abilities. The game is divided into two basic aspects: the discovery of some coordinates or codes and the input of these coordinates in Compass. This tool, in response to the coordinate inserted, will provide a riddle or a puzzle logic, depending on the situation. The reward for our efforts will almost always be an object, an indication, a missing piece to continue. There is also the research of some secondary elements, within the various screens that allow you to unlock many interesting articles about the life of Corto Maltese. Despite the repetition of the situations, the game is not boring; riddles are indeed always interesting and very challenging, putting pressure on the most experienced users.
