In Dark City: London you play as the detective. Called in to the solve the mystery of the cursed clock tower! The developers have done well to evoke the atmosphere of a classic grimy Victorian detective story. Reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes and Edgar Allan Poe. Especially with the depictions of the locations. And the variety of characters – including the voice-acting, which for the most part, is done well.
The plot and game play are also nicely combined. Which quickly draws you into this unfolding dark and eerie mystery.
The game play has plenty of variety. Though possibly a bit on the easy side. However there is plenty to do. Including multi-layered hidden object games. With mini-games and puzzles within HO games.
Once you’ve collected the evidence at each stage. You’re presented with a deduction board. Where you can put your sleuthing skills to the test. By arranging the clues you’ve collected into the proper order to deduce important facts that will help you solve the case. (Similar to the recent ABC Murders game.)
Overall, this is a well-designed detective game. Though, not always very challenging. There’s enough to enjoy in the varied game play and compelling story. To make this a fun Victorian mystery adventure.
This game is one of my Best Hidden Object Games of 2017 for PC and Mac!
