Bigfoot, the Abominable Snowman, the Loch Ness Monster - cryptozoologists are trying to track these creatures down and research them. One also appears in the legends of the Ashanti people in Ghana. These tell of human-like creatures that lurk in the trees at night and take their victims off to their caves to suck their blood: the Asanbosam. Right after journalist Sam Peters has escaped from a volcanic eruption on an Indonesian island caused by terrorists, her boss sends her to Africa. Soon enough, strange things start happening at Bosumtwi, a mysterious crater lake. Could the Asanbosam really exist? Sam Peters is searching for the answers in this thrilling tale of the Secret Files series.

Original and creative puzzles
An offshoot in the Secret Files series with a minor character from part two, Puritas Cordis, getting her own little adventure in the jungles of Africa. While being very short compared to the rest of the games in the series, this one is actually the first one that's on par with the original - that is, perfectly acceptable, albeit not especially great adventure on a budget. Sam Peters is a better protagonist than Nina Kalenkov, even though she does still blurt out wildly inappropriate stuff every once in a while and definitely has a bit of a snooty attitude. Anyhow, the story is more in line with Animation Arts' best effort, Lost Horizon: A traditional Indiana Jones -style romp that deals with uncovering existing mysteries of the world instead of inventing new ones or trying to provide a modern angle on things. The graphics have improved a bit, the voice acting is perfectly serviceable and the puzzle design is actually quite nice. I never got desperately stuck, so I guess this is one of the easier entries in the series. You can definitely see the budget trappings of the game though - Almost no other characters besides Sam, exposition done mostly with static comic book -style panels and text, pretty lukewarm ending etc. etc. Still, I'd say this is not a waste considering the price, and will aggravate the player much less than some of the other Secret Files entries.
