So the new game is called Marie Antoinette and the American War of Independence.
The educational game sends you time travelling along with Oscar (smarty pants side-kick to the brainy professor) ((if you liked the Professor Layton games this is similar!)) back to 1781. The adventure takes place on water, in American and, of course, all the way to Versailles!
You will meet many famous characters from the past such as Washington, La Fayette, Rochambeau etc., and you will learn a little bit about each, and their roles during the period. The game is full of mini games, riddles and quizzes that you must pass in order to move on to the next adventure. You will need to know a thing or two about the 18th century to pass these, but if you don't know the answers you always get another chance! Some of the activities reminded me of the mini-games in Mario Party, and I have a feeling not only the kids will enjoy this one.
Harvest Moon and Professor Layton & the Diabolical Box. It would be wonderful if the music for Marie Antoinette & the American War of Independence was a little stronger. The video game overall is still very entertaining!
I am working on my game now, and I admit I have yet to reach Versailles but I am well on my way! I think now that the holiday has passed I will be able to sail through. Why am I excited to get to Versailles? You get to "meet Marie-Antoinette in her elegant world at Petit Trianon castle. But be careful! A mysterious secret society is acting in the shadows…" The purpose of the game is to find traitors and save the Queen. Will you be playing?
