I started this discussion at Sue's (Texaslady) suggestion. The game is listed in HINTS.
This is the first mention I can remember about this game. Is it an ADVENTURE game or an ACTION game? When was it released?
Love, Betty Lou

BL, if you search the web, there is all kind of info on it. It is an action/adventure keyboard controlled game released in 2002. Just as a quickie, you can read a review HERE. and there is also a walkthrough on Gameboomers that explains alot about the game.

Hi Betty Lou, I played this game a few years ago on a PS2 & would class it as an adventure game. The 'action' element from what I can remember consists of a few 'fights' with the baddies. But it is all turn based, not timed? & more puzzle based than 'action' i.e working out the best methods to knock someone out. You don't have to frantically bash keys to win - you just have to think logically although it may take a few tries! If that doesn't put you off - I found the game an underrated gem & would recommend it unless you are easily offended as there is a 'love scene' near the beginning! smile

I have to say Betty- this game was a really nice surprise for me- and I loathe action, but this was no problem. It played fine for me, enjoyed the story, the character interaction and puzzles. I can't understand why it's not more popular among adventure gamers!

This game was a "buried treasure" for me, as well. It was much more entertaining than I had anticipated it would be. smile wave
