About the Game

The Spiritual. The Supernatural. The Skeptical. All are touched upon in Nostradamus: The Last Prophecy. The player is immortalized as a profiler of sorts in this treasure hunt game - a brilliantly vivid historical rendition of the acclaimed quatrains of Nostradamus.

The adventure begins in the South of France as Salon-de-Provence, and its Royal Family fall prey to unfathomable terrors. You play as Madeleine de Nostradame, the daughter of the famous astrologer, author and apothecary as she hunts down an assassin who uses astrology to disguise his crimes as fearsome prophecies. But when past, present and the uncertain future collide…your more logical nature may turn superstitious.

Here is another "old" game that I was very happy to be able to play after so long. I didn't remember most of it anyway.

What I truly love about this game is that most of the puzzles are very logical (and rather simple), unlike the new tendency of adventure games, which are usually based on gathering a lot random items without apparent reason, which you will have to combine (I positively hate pixel hunting), and where you don't always understand what you are supposed to do or, more important, why. In this game, everything you do has a purpose in the story. Futhermore, some of your choices have an impact on your progress (and score).

I liked the story and the artwork so much, that I didn't care that the quality of the graphics was not the last of the last. Oh, and I found a little bug that made me have to restart the game (the importance of saving).

Now, the truth is that it is a short game and the only interest of playing it again would be to try to get a higher score. But I am a sucker for this exact kind of game, so I loved it (and replayed it!).

Recommended with reservations - this is a decent game, but it didn't capture me, mainly because I'm not into astronomy and the pace is slow since I got stuck a lot.

I've only played the first day, so far, no hidden objects. There's a bit of recipe mashing, collecting ingredients and such, but for the most part, it is point & click.

The graphics are 1024x768, and that looks decent enough (remember, TV and DVD have had worse resolution for decades). The graphic art is actually well done, I've seen a lot cheaper (and the orginal Myst never looked as good). That said, it is still a game where you stop at fixed positions, and then you can rotate the view and interact with the surroundings, or move to another position.

The game gets full marks for the atmosphere and the storyline so far; for the actual puzzling, there are too few hints, which had me needlessly stumped because I couldn't figure out what the game wanted me to do.

From all the forum posts AND the problems I have with this game...
if you buy it, buy it as cheap as possible because you have like a 50/50 chance of it working properly.

The gameplay is awesome though, just what I like about point and seek puzzle games!
It reminds me of old classics like Monkey Island and The Dig from LucasArts but...

The bugs in this game are not worth the aggrevation!
I DO NOT Recommend this game.

Motion sickness.... Warning if you're the type of person that gets motions sick over games that where you move your 'eyes'/ view with your mouse this is not the game for you! I'm not sure if it's just the way this game was designed but the way the game moves when you move your mouse is very nausiating. If you can get passed the nauseating part of this games movement it might be fun to play. I wish I could give this to my sister because I just can't play it without getting physically sick! If I'd know this game was set up like you're looking through the main characters eyes I woud not have bought it!

If you are a mac user, don't buy it! There is a bug in the very beginning of the game, where is impossible to exit the dialog with Nostradamus when you show him the coloring cream.
