Microïds pays one more time tribute to Jules Verne’s masterpiece with the freemium version of “Jules Verne’s Return to Mysterious Island 2” on iPhone and iPad.
After a first adventure full of surprises, Mina, heroine of the first game of the series, and her monkey sidekick Jep find themselves safe and sound aboard the helicopter that came to save them at the end of “Jules Verne’s Return to Mysterious Island”. They will not be breathing easy for long. Events take a turn for the worse when the helicopter crash lands and sinks to the depths of the ocean.
The player can explore the 3D environments with a 360° view. He can switch roles between the two heroes so that they can find objects that will help them solve riddles. Players can choose whether they take on the role of Mina or Jep, depending on which character will be more helpful for each of the various tasks they will come across during the adventure. This means that a real teamwork aspect develops between the characters as the game progresses.
The role of Mina will put the players’ intellect to the test thanks to her ability to combine objects. As for Jep, he can use his animal charms to interact with the local wildlife in order to get food, and he can also climb trees to get objects that are out of Mina’s reach. This partnership between the two characters will allow players to progress through the game, and to explore it to the maximum in order to contact rescue teams and save the island, mysteriously struck by environmental changes with potentially disastrous consequences.
To help them succeed in this adventure, players have access to an interactive inventory where they can store and combine objects that will be useful for progressing through the game (for example, by combining a stick, a wire and a bottle cap, you can get a fishing rod). The quick inventory enables players to equip themselves with an object and to use it to interact with the surroundings or the people they meet.
An automatic save system makes it easier for players to save their progress in the adventure. For an even greater immersive game experience, players can activate the Compass Look function that reproduces the iPhone or iPad’s movements within the game interface (for example, pointing the device up will allow players to find things concealed in the trees).
“Jules Verne’s Return to Mysterious Island 2” in Freemium version is available from Febuary 6, 2014, on iPhone and iPad in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
