The Final Battle for Symbian S60 3rd Edition Review

Final Battle map of the game “You play the game through a pointer, which lets you click on items, places and people to examine or interact with them. There’s also an inventory permanently displayed on the right of the screen, which lets you choose or combine particular objects. You can leave your current location by clicking on one of the exit signs, which will either take you to an adjacent location or back onto the main game map. Once you’re on the map you can go to a particular place by clicking on it.Puzzles are a mixture of straightforward logic and relentless exploration, with the occasional mad, twisted solution thrown in for good measure. Did you know that the best way to pick oily flowers is to stick a wooden wedge in some cow dung, and then stick the dirty wedge in the flower bed? The game’s own responses and dialogue with other characters has a good knowing humour to it, which is quite amazing when you consider the game is being simultaneously released in English, French, German, Greek, Italian and Russian. We only reviewed the English version, hopefully the other languages are just as good (presumably the Greek one is excellent as CrazySoft are from Greece). Pay attention to the game responses and dialogue, there are many clues hidden away in there.” Read more about this wonderful game here:
