JohnBL'expresso Empoisonné (The Poison Coffee) is a superb point-and-click mystery game created by Anode & Cathode, the authors of The Museum, The Casino, and other games in this genre.

empoisonne.jpgPaintings and other artwork have been stolen from a museum gallery. All of the evidence points to Damien Bestieu, one of the featured painters. A school teacher solves the mystery, but just as she is about to reveal the thief, Damien hands her a cup of coffee. She takes a sip and falls to the floor unconscious. The coffee was poisoned. The police consider it an open and shut case, but two young school children think differently. Help the children solve the mystery by searching the museum and surrounding grounds for clues that will clear Damien of the crime.

L'expresso Empoisonné is exquisitely designed with an easy point-and-click interface and fetching artwork. The story might be simple, but it's catchy and extremely enjoyable, kind of like an episode of Scooby Doo minus the campy humor. You carry a backpack that holds your inventory along with a clue journal. There are four entries in the journal that point to Damien's guilt. Your overarching goal is to prove each of these points false. You'll also be solving typical point-and-click puzzles to unlock doors, navigate mazes and find necessary items to continue in the game.

A small but enormously enjoyable feature of L'expresso Empoisonné are little mini-games that are integrated into the story. One example is a short bout of whac-a-mole. There's also a small (but oh-so-fun) maze and a short action-arcade sequence involving fish. Each time I hit one of these mini-games it was the perfect time to break the cerebral activity of solving a mystery. And I admit it, they made me grin.

L'expresso Empoisonné was released in French a little over a month ago, but this version has been translated to English. There are some rough patches and a few untranslated bits of text, but nothing that will hamper your understanding or enjoyment of the game.

You'll spend a solid hour on this game and will be glued to the screen the entire time. Puzzles are just difficult enough to keep you entertained but not too tough to discourage you. A very well-balanced title that captured my imagination and admiration right from the start.

Play The Poison Coffee

Update: It appears that Anode & Cathode have taken The Poison Coffee offline and therefore it is no longer available. :(

MadWithMuchHeart,

The strength comes in a potion you get when you finish the fish race in the swamp. To do that, you need the booster - I don't recall where that is. Possibly in the swamp house?

I don't know if it was a bug, or what, but...

It wouldn't let me put the watch on the figure, even after putting the suit, the lights, the glasses and the cap on it. All of the other art pieces were complete, and I had 4 flasks sitting in my inventory.

I had no idea what to do, so I gave up. Up until that, it was a very enjoyable game, though. :)

I don't want to hear any more 'where is....' because here is a walkthrough. Love the site, J.
Froggie

  1. Go left to the manor. Get the cube. Enter the manor, main hall, top-left door. Only one door in the corridor works. Enter, get cube, play the memory game. Get the key. Return to the main hall.

  2. Go into the top middle portal of the main hall. Get the cube. Exit the manor. Go left (or right) to the back.

  3. Get the round red thing in the tree and the cube. Enter the upper right hut. Talk to the ghost, pick any name, play whack-a-mole and get a cube.

  4. Exit the hut and go further back to the lake.

  5. Get cube from under car. Open rear door, get gun. Open trunk, get crowbar.

My mistake!

You use the key

behind the painting

to open the lift.

You use the memory game key to open the labyrinth!

charming! another winner from anode and cathode. the didactic ending was kind of odd and a little silly but kind of endearing. the fish chase was a little bit tedious, but it still gets points for effort.

I used red ring in the museum before using it with cannon (I read from walkthrough that it should have been used with cannon first) and now I can't get it back to use it with cannon, so I can't beat the game without restarting...

my cursor half disapppeared in the forest with the ghost thing, I gave up at that point because my cursor was so slow anyway, it took ages to move anywhere and was so jerky that it took several attempt to get it to where I wanted it.

If it wasn't for the frustration of the cursor I'd be able to sit there and play it for ages.

To get past the fish game you need to

...

speed him up with the right arrow and slow him down with the left arrow as you get to the fireballs. The sharks speed doesn't change, if you can stay about an inch or so away from him you'll be good for the whole game.

the fish game is easy just

go down as through the floor and keep going untill you reach a close to the potion, then you need to get up fast without dieing.

Ok if your looking for the graveyard ghost's ingredients here's a clue.

All that useless garbage you have left over fits in art exibits in the gallery.

Took me a while.
Good game.

The only problem I faced was the disappearing curser .. have to click out the game screen or on another page to get it back !! other than this it was going smooth ..

Here are som hints for the Labyrinth..

Are you sure?

Yes, okay!

1. The little white square is YOU!, use your arrows to move it, and use your mouse to light.

2. Collect all the items from all the rooms!

3. Be careful, you have to fight with some snakes and other monsters!

Enjoy the Labyrinth :)

I've been a regular at Jay Is Games for a while now, and I've played most of the escape-the-room games. Many of them I would not have been able to complete without this comment section, so I thank you.

Now I ask for help. I have completed everything that appears before getting the watch on the above walkthrough, but I can't get it!

Is the ghost supposed to move? I've clicked on the square on the tombstone closest to him, but I see no watch!!!

Help!

As this game has been referenced recently, I think I should point out that the link no longer works on this page. :-)

[Edit: Yep, thanks. A&C have changed their links and didn't bother redirecting the old links to the new pages. Unfortunately, in the case of The Poison Coffee, it appears that A&C has taken this game completely offline. -Jay]

Actually, while the link no longer works, the game is still out there - at a slightly different site.
The site is
http://old.anodeetcathode.net/expresso/

The main site (old.anodeetcathode.net) seems to have all of their games, forums (inc. walkthroughs!) on it for their other games.
