Vortex Point 2: Nensha
Something freaky is happening in the town of Vortex Point again, and that means it's time for our favourite motley crew of investigators to solve the case with their usual, er, finesse in the latest point-and-click adventure from Carmel Games, Vortex Point 2: Nensha. There's something fishy going on with a photo booth, to the tune of a mysterious masked figure showing up in photos and people going missing. The police think it's just a prank to get attention, but nobody's laughing, and it's up to you to get to the bottom of things before anyone else comes down with a bad case of the phantom strangles.
When your cursor changes when you mouse over an object, that means you can click to interact and pick it up, and items appear in your inventory at the bottom of the screen. You can click on items and then somewhere on the screen to use them, or click on one item and then another to try to combine them. Your investigations are going to take you all over town, so make sure you follow every lead, no matter how weird or unlikely, and especially if it involves property damage. While Vortex Point 2 has what is actually a pretty intriguing storyline apart from some awkward dialogue, its biggest flaw is that it typically tends to offer little to no direction, and progression tends to come down to being a jerk, breaking things, and experimentation... Sherlock you ain't. But though it's short, it's got a clever story premise I would have liked to have seen expanded on, and hopefully this isn't the last visit we make to Vortex Point.
