Over dit spel

Uit de kunstwerken en verhalen van de beroemde grafische schrijver Enki Bilal, en de studio gemaakt door de adventure-gamelegende Benoit Sokal komt nu Nikopol: Secrets of the Immortals.

Frankrijk, 2023, het land wordt geregeerd door een dictator die de absolute macht heeft. Een mysterieus schip in de vorm van een piramide is net in de lucht gesignaleerd en heeft woordvoerders gestuurd om met de Franse regering te praten.

Als Nikopol beleef je een spannend avontuur op de zoektocht naar je vader terwijl je een gevaarlijk complot dwarsboomt. Verstrikt in politieke intrige ben je gevangen tussen twee werelden, één van anarchie en één van onsterfelijkheid.

  • Een spannende en mentale uitdaging in een rijk, futuristisch universum geinspireerd door de befaamde schrijver Enki Bilal
  • Als Nikopol moet je sluwheid en logica gebruiken om jezelf te beschermen voor het plan van de Onsterfelijken en om het donkere complot te dwarsbomen
  • Speel met 8 verschillende personen in 6 unieke gebieden, elk gebaseerd op verschillende omgevingen
  • Adembenemende graphics
  • Meeslepende gameplay
  • Traditionele point and click interface

Beautiful graphics, and interesting premise but the game itself is extremely frustrating. The puzzles themselves are pretty simple, but in addition to the old pixel hunt style, the game doesn't enable the hotspots for items or usable scenery until specific times. Then, just to ramp up the frustration, there are timed puzzles, with the same constraints. Suddenly scenery and items become arbitrarily active or inactive, with little time to experiment and search. Feels like a serving of frustration with a side of screw you from the author. Having a walkthrough helps, but it'll just ♥♥♥♥ you off when you see that your solution was correct -- you just weren't doing it the way the designer wanted you to, and at the right time that the designer wanted you to.

Disclaimer: I haven't read the book or watched the movie. This is a review based solely on my game experience.

Short Verdict: A nice, short adventure game with a decent story going on. While it was a fun experience, it's too short and not that awesome to be worth its full price, which is low, by the way--US$ 4.36 (R$ 10,49) on Steam. If you have it already and you wanna play a quick adventure game, by all means, go for it. If you don't have it, I wouldn't spend much money on it. It's good, but nothing special. But don't play it for the story--do it only for the puzzles.

Pros:
  • The story is decent enough for the length of the game
  • Good graphics if you consider when it was released (but nothing special, either)
  • I enjoyed how the first-person view was implemented and how it makes you interact with the environment in this game
  • The timed scenes are really thrilling
  • Most puzzles were nice and set to a decent level of difficulty
  • The world is fairly well-developed and so are the characters

Cons:
  • Way too short--beat it in less than 4 hours
  • The story is a bit all over the place for those don't know anything about Nikopol
  • Some puzzles are frustrating, especially the first timed ones, when you're still getting used to the game
  • There are some illogical things in the game, like a barred door being magically opened minutes later (close to the end of the game)
  • Some plot holes and weird things, like why would a dictator hold elections? Why is everyone doing what they're doing? Nothing makes much sense

Bought on / for: Arctic Bundle by Bundle Stars for an average of US$ 0.36 (R$ 0,89). For this price, yeah, I'd probably buy it as a single game.

The game was... interesting. The story wasn't exactly bad, but i think you need to read the trilogy to fully understand it. I personally haven't and the story didn't make any sense at the start. The game has quite a lot of action for a point & click adventure game. With action i mean that someone might be following you etc. and you need to do bunch of puzzles or move around really quickly so they won't catch you. Puzzles were quite easy and the game was pretty short (Around 4-5 hours, probably a bit longer if you're new to the genre).

This game is based on a graphic novel, or a series of 3 graphic novels that later got compiled into one book called "The Nikopol Trilogy" written and illiustrated by a great French author named Enki Bilal. The art in the novel is what stands out the most and is a very dark, gritty, and , industrial, steam-punk(architectural not the lame club scene), and is set in an alternate dystopian future where religions are now all powerful government parties and the ancient Egyptian gods themselves have returned to earth from space in a hovering pyramid spaceship. Despite being gods, with powers seemingly limited only by the imagination, they are still quite flawed sentient beings, who aregue and bicker and play board games to pass the time. They also require fossil fuels to power their spaceship and are stuck hovering over Paris. That is a basic run down of the story line for all you haters out there who "don't get the story line."
Secondly, there is also a pretty popular Sci-Fi film based on the Nikopol story called "Immortal" that came out in 2004. I remember watching it on the Sci-Fi channel a couple times and you can currently watch the full movie on YouTube. I highly recommend it. The movie was directed by the author of the graphic novel Enki Bilal and is actually quite a ground breaking movie in its own right. It revolutionized the art of mixing computer animation with live action. In this dystopian future there is heavy polution, and many people have become sick and prosthetic artificial body parts are not only required for most people, but it is a huge fad like plastic surgery gone haywire, and has become all the rage. So you see these real actors with computer generated parts and they had to film every scene twice exactly the same way. There are also aliens, who are ironically enough, treated just like illegal aliens and have to go through customs and immigration lol.
OK, so , on to the game. This was the first "point and click adventure" game I've ever really played, so it took some getting used to. The fact that this game is pretty closley based on the book and not the movie kept me pretty interested the whole time as it is stuff that happens to Nikopol inbetween the books. Yes the game is hard as hell and I did need a walkthrough on certain puzzles, but honestly, in a world where half the modern games are designed so that a baboon could beat it on hard, it was a welcomed challenge. If you are used to point and click than you know what to expect. This game actually got me into more point and click adventure games such as Myst and a few others. If you are a fan of the movie Immortal(ad vitam) or the Nikopol Trilogy books than this game will blow your shorts off. If not and you kinda liked the crazy dark sci fi storyline, I highly recommend you check out all three.

First of all, you need to understand; this is addition to novel or movie. So first of all go and read\watch 'em. Only then consider to play this game. Overall? it is a great adventure, not a best out there but decent.
