Alexia Crow: The Pandora's Box
She's traveled through The Cave of Heroes. She's asked what's The Deal With The Gods. Now Alexia Crow, tourist and reluctant chosen one has to face the most dangerous peril yet: the third game of a trilogy! No, wait... I mean: Pandora's Box! As in the Pandora's Box... the one with the bad history in re: unleashing things? At the very least something of equivalent danger. Chiron wants her to destroy it and it looks to be in that shady office buildinge. Since the outside is secured by all kinds of weird puzzle junk, you know that the inhabitants are up to no good... the "millions of lives are at stake" kind of no good. Alexia Crow: The Pandora's Box is the concluding chapter of QuestTracers' point-and-click adventure saga, where a hero finally discovers her destiny.
Click to interact with your surroundings, though be warned that the cursor won't change except to show you area transitions. If something looks like it could possibly be picked up, then click it and do so, as you'll likely need it later. Drag the items you do find from your inventory at the bottom of the screen to where you'd like to place them. Also please note the button in the lower-left that will remove the 3D warping effect. One has the feeling it'll be seeing a lot of use. The Pandora's Box maintains the positive aspects of the previous installments in the series, while sadly also falling victim to its flaws. First, the good... the art is as rich and detailed as always, even if sneaking around a dimly lit office is inherently less visually interesting than skulking about ancient monuments. The puzzles are generally logical, even if this company is bit heavy on using Conceptis-style grid-puzzles to protect their important files. The big drawback is the game's interface... the rough edges present earlier in the series that are even rougher here, where it can sometimes be a struggle to get the game to let you solve the puzzles you know you have the solution to. For all its technical flaws, however, The Pandora's Box proves a satisfying, if twisty, conclusion to Alexia Crow's story and fans of the series will enjoy seeing how it all turns out.
