Well, Nikopol: Secrets of the Immortals is a short adventure game based on The Carnival of Immortals - or La Foire aux immortels, the first book of Enki Bilal's Nikopol Trilogy, a series of graphics novels that illustrates 2023 Paris as an incredibly dark political dystopia with science fiction elements. Aside Enki Bilal's genius in depicting the surreal and the grotesque in Nikopol series, this game is a heavily watered down version of the first book, from Nikopol Jr.'s perspective.

It's year 2023. After two nuclear wars, countless political confrontations and casual genetic mutations, the world has become disease-ridden and post-apocalyptic. We take the silent, oblivious artist Nikopol Jr.'s perspective as puppeteered elections for the nation of Paris approaches. He is a silent romantic in a degenerate era. With the appearance of an odd spaceship in the form of an Egyptian pyramid on Paris astroport, Alcide Nikopol's life is about to change drastically.

Before continuing with my review, I have to warn you: if you are to only play this game, without reading comics first, I suspect that you would be capable of understanding anything. As a stand-alone game, story presentation is mismatched and rushed. It is more than likely to complete the whole game without understanding anything about the affairs going around. The setting is not well-presented enough to capture the grotesque genius of the series and a great amount of characters, events, explanations are completely skipped in this bland interpretation. So if you've found the concept to your liking and got curious, drop the game and get yourself Nikopol Trilogy to enjoy an A+ quality creepy dystopia.

Okay, now we've established the quality difference between graphic novels and the game, I'll focus on the game. Graphics might be considered beautiful in their own displays, and character animations are quite elegant. I especially liked the character designs for Egyptian characters - Horus and Anubis. Voice acting isn't marvelous, and the subtitles being nonexistent doesn't stand in the favor of the game either though.

Well, when we talk about the gameplay, Nikopol has its list of downsides. Without the usage of a walkthrough, it is possible to miss an item and keep playing only to find that you cannot progress anymore due to the item not being available for you to grab anymore. On that department, I suggest saving a lot - which is another issue, with only 10 save slots given. Also, you are capable of dying in a handful of imaginative ways, considering that you are treated as a terrorist by the government from the start of your game. In that sense, no, this is not your casual point and click adventure. Puzzles are usually interesting and imaginative, and they demand prior attention to the storyline, so you have to keep certain facts at mind before trying to handle a puzzle. With the slightest mistake, you are prone to alarming security and getting shot down. Luckily, game restores your position before being shut down every time.

As an adventure game, Nikopol: Secrets of the Immortals isn't anything unique or even interesting, with its grander equivalents around. As an Enki Bilal interpretation, it could present you a brief smile if you are already familiar with his work. If not, go fetch the comic book. Only after reading the original work, if you could say that you are still curious, yeah, go ahead. Otherwise, the game won't mean anything to you.

I played it through the end, but I can't recommend it for everyone. Nikopol is an point and click adventure with prerendered backgrounds based on the Nikopol story by Enki Bilal. And to be honest that is it greatest plus, so if you've never heard of any of those two then you probably want to skip this game.

+ Nice Artwork, inspired by Enki Bilal
+ References to his works
+ Can be beaten in one evening (might want to consult a guide)

- Some very difficult puzzles
- Timed events that result in your death if you're not quick enough
- Generally not much instructions, more of a trial and error approach
- Though this has not happend to me, players in the forum complained about situations where you run into a dead end, without the game telling you that.
- No movement. You're in a fixed position, where you can rotate 360° and can interact with things and/or travel to the next screen.
- No hotspots, making some things difficult to find (e.g. projector start button)

Two final statements: Go read the comics/graphic novels and consider using a guide to play this game.

Interesting story based on "Immortel (ad vitam)" animation film that came out 2004.

Point and click game in FPS view. Some puzzles makes no sense, like it is hard to spot a piece of rock on the floor, while it is least obvious thing to look for to make progress.

Game is short. It only makes longer if the player stuck at some puzzle for long hours. Luckily there are walkthrough videos on the net. If every puzzle in the head, i doubt the game lasts longer than 1 hour.

Graphics are nice, music is awesome.

Overall, buying it on discount makes worth playing it.

Only 4 short hours of gameplay, but good ones none the less. The storyline is interesting, but very thin. The game takes place in just 4 major set pieces, and if there was just a few more then the story could have some real meat on its bones, but as is everything happens "because." A good sale game, don't buy it for more than $2.50.

Interesting scifi story, reminds Philip K. ♥♥♥♥ works, but sadly the game design has lot's of flaws, there are no hotspots for objects that you can use and sometimes they look like being part of the backround, so you have to do lot's of pixel hunting. There are lot's of timed puzzles and the game let's you continue to play even if you forgot to take or do something important, so that it will lead to dead end later on, so you need to save often, just like in the old Sierra adventure games. Soundtrack is good ambient that fits to the game, it's like Deus Ex's soundtrack.

If it was designed little better I would reccommend this, it's enjoyable if you use little bit walkthrough here and there, but without walkthrough it's just frustrating pixel hunting.
