    Well Done Sequel
    Sunny Sunny Sunny


    A very good intro to this one. The video of the plane crash is wonderful, the voiceover is good, and the commentary well written.  The live actors did alright. You get a good sense of the game from those opening minutes.

    We arrive at a really really sandy place called Transvaal, looking for Uncle Sam, who is investigating Morgana, a woman we are painfully aware of from our previous adventure (as Sam) in the original Web Of Deceit” game. Nicknamed the Black Widow, Morgana controls an army of robotic deadly venomous spiders. Now a woman who looks suspiciously like her is glimpsed at the scene of a spider-murder. Is it her?

    Well, the first thing I noticed was that there were definitely fewer spiders so far. And many more puzzles. Although I didn’t come across any puzzles I thought were totally new, I did like the way they’d been adapted to the different location. There were fewer HO puzzles, which were interactive lists, with some whacky ideas for interaction. For example, find the knife to cut the pouch that is hanging above the fire, which allows the toy fireman to use his extinguisher on the fire that has engulfed the item you’re actually looking for – the tin knight.

    There was an interactive jump map, with a on/off toggle so you can choose what is flagged, active areas, where you need to go back to later, etc. As well as a directional hint. I particularly liked the different ways the backstory videos were activated within the game. Not just the same method each time. And the back story gives anyone who didn’t play the first game all they need to know.

    Collectible posters, plus the usual gallery items, SG, bonus chapter, and achievements. Fairly standard fare.

    I wasn’t overly impressed with the first “Web Of Deceit” game. Though it was quite enjoyable, it just didn’t wow me. I found myself unable to really get into it. I like what I’ve seen of this sequel much more, and I lost track of time in the demo (always a good sign), but it is still not going to make it to my favourites list. It just doesn’t have pizzazz.

    I recommend this game!
