An adventure game similar to DejaVu (one and the same engine). This is a kind of very much improved version of the text adventure game. The text of the messages remains, but nothing is necessary to write yourself. Teams are selected by the cursor, he also selects the direction of movement and he can also poke into objects on the small screen to obtain information on them or in order to take them. This game is a classic fantasy adventure game.
