But when past, present and the uncertain future collide…your more logical nature may turn superstitious.

Nostradamus is a point & click adventure where you (or at least your brother) are recruited to investigate a curse that is unfolding based on a quatrain written by Nostradamus himself. Nostradamus, your father, is in his late years now: old, weak, and frail. Since your brother is away, and because of the time period a woman does not seem fit to handle the task, your father sees it best to disguise you as your brother to help the queen's mother solve the mystery of people close to her dying as she is now in fear of her own life.

Being a Microids game, the gameplay is quite good with a lot of similarities to Syberia and Return to Mysterious Island. It involves a lot of detective work with very engaging puzzles. The game also provides a good foundation of early astrology and chemistry. Highly enjoyable.

Nostadamus: The Last Prophecy is an unusual, impressive and engaging game with a strong storyline and fun puzzle elements througout!

I love the historical fiction it's based off and the point-and-click genre is one of my favourites; so anyone who's into either is going to love this game.

There is a lot of logic involved and the game reminds me of Myst in many regards. Highly recommended!

Recently, I've been on a point-and-click spree. While most games disappointed, Nostradamus: The Last Prophecy actually won me over, and over, and over again.

What is so good about this game?
First of all, it's the graphics - they are old, sure. But they are accordingly old. It's not like you're supposedly playing a game set in 2044 while it looks like it's actually 1999. Then, you have an immersive OST and a lovely background music choice in most locations.

The puzzles are something that I would like to compliment extensively. You have puzzles that are actually involved in the story line. This, you won't see often even in puzzle-based quests. They are different; you cannot solve two in the same way or even with the same type of analogy. You have different types of puzzles: from reflectory to balancing to runes. On top of this, they really do seem important.

Something else I love about it is that they never really killed the good old guy, although many characters did meet their end.

I particularly enjoyed the cross-dressing part. A nice twist on the old gender definitions. And yet, even this was realised through puzzles. You need to arrange voice manneurisms in order to achieve complete consistency.

If anyone is wondering if they want to try this game, I wholeheartedly recommend it to them. If you think the puzzles are too hard, it just means you need more experience - they are one of the most pleasurable parts of point-and-click adventure games.

This game is very relaxing and fun. The puzzles are great, and easy to get into for all ages. I highly recommend this game for anyone that is looking for something simple and challenging at the same time. If you like to think, this game will do just that!

5¢ Review
Pro:
Weird
Good Concept
OK artwork

Con:
No cards / achieves
Buggy
Overpriced
Not fun
Virtually no settings, graphics or otherwise

Overall:
5/10 -1 buggy -1 price = 3/10

For me this is a great concept game, but it just isn’t fun. It’s too P&C for an adventure game, it’s too hidden object for a P&C game & it’s just not that fun. Any game you have to keep going back to the walkthrough over and over again just to get to the next part is more work than fun.

If this is your game, grab it on sale or in a bundle. Otherwise just go grab a fun game on steam.
