Red Johnson’s Chronicles from Microids is a puzzle and deduction game made in a steampunk-esque city
Here, you play as a role as the titular Johnson as he attempts to unravel the details behind a murder. The game is divided into point-and-click exploration scenes during which allow you to hunt for clues and details, and puzzle scenes you must overcome in order to advance.
The art style is excellent and the visuals are nice, and the game has mostly static, single-screen environments.
You will find a great deal of voice-acting that both adds and detracts from the experience
You will experience the dialogue in hard-boiled and bordering on ‘cheesy’ in many places
The puzzles themselves will include decoding messages, connecting dots with colored lines, picking locks.
Meanwhile, the game will tell you right up front, each puzzle is self-contained.
Along the game, you will need to solve the puzzle within the puzzle itself.
There is no need for you to wonder if you missed some critical scrap of info against a puzzle challenge.
Ont the other words, Red Johnson’s Chronicles is a game entirely on rails in which you will find yourself unable to solve a puzzle, and you will be completely unable to proceed.
This game will allow you to play as Red Johnson, a private detective who is trying to find his place in the corrupted city of Metropolis.
Here, you will be assigned to solve various puzzles in which it is up to you to look for clues, interrogate the witnesses and put the evidence together in order to find the perpetrator.
Also, you must have to use your logic to solve the different enigmas
And, occasionally, you need to use your fists to get the answers.
On the other side, try to the clues and use your logic to complete your investigation successfully
So you need to speak to witnesses and sort out the truth from the lies
In addition, this game is a great puzzler, packed in a sometimes-clever-sometimes-corny package.
It comes with interesting art direction, engaging gameplay, and a forgivably campy
But, you should feel free to answer the call of the crime-ridden streets as this is interesting story of this game.
