'Zerzura' is a traditional point and click adventure. On seeing its logo you might suspect it to be a hidden object game. But is a point and click adventure with a reasonable plot and length of playtime.
The game is based around two young men around 20 years old in Spain during the time of the Inquisition. One of them fancies himself as a competitior to Leonardo Da Vinci. Lots of the puzzles are centered around him inventing things. His brother is early on sought out by the Inquisition and the rest of the game is centered around the younger brother finding him and then discovering why he was so persecuted.
The game mechanics are very much old adventure game style. You can talk with people to advance the plot, use objects together to create new devices and use things in your inventory with objects in the environment to help your character.
The graphics are really quite pretty.
Useful highlighting of hot spots.
The soundtrack is nothing exceptional but decent.
The voice acting for the English version is really very good.
The plot is engaging until just before the end. The ending itself is a bit dull.
The main character thinks he's some kind of genius of invention but the puzzle solutions involve some bad, bad ideas. People that understand Physics and Engineering need to prepare themselves for covering their eyes and forgiving the writers.
The main character needs an injection of personality.
The main character develops a disturbing case of Stockholm syndrome which makes a small chunk of the game just feel weird.
In summary: The game's main flaws are the about main character but he isn't too annoying to stop the game being worth buying. It's an above mediocre point and click with good production but occasionally mad puzzle design.
