Secret Files Tunguska Review

Just recently I finished playing Secret Files Tunguska.  A German point and click adventure game created by Fusionsphere System. This game was originally released in 2006, but wasn't released in English until the October 30th, 2006.  During sometime around 2010 or 2011, I found this game and fell in love with it.  The game focuses on Nina Kalenkov and her father's disappearance from the museum where he is currently employed and the research he was working on.  So let's get started!

Secret Files Tunguska: Nina Kalenkov
“Nina is torn from her day-to-day routine when she discovers that her father has disappeared without a trace. As the police seem reluctant to help her, Nina sets off to look for clues relating to her father's whereabouts. She joins efforts with Max Gruber, a young colleague of her father who impulsively offers to help the attractive young lady. Together, they quickly determine that Nina's father was involved with a research expedition to Siberia in an attempt to reveal the causes of the mysterious Tunguska catastrophe of 1908.

In that mysterious event, a mighty explosion triggered an inferno that decimated the land of Tunguska. Nina and Max soon realize that her father's disappearance is related to the Tunguska event and the search for answers leads Nina and Max to the most remote corners of the world – Berlin, Moscow, Cuba, China, and the Antarctic. Powerful adversaries are also interested in Nina's father's secret. In the end, much more is at stake than just the disappearance of an old man.”

This game is played by two characters; the first one is by Nina Kalenkov, and the second character is Max Gruber from a third person point of view.  I have played both the IOS version (No longer Available) and the PC version of the game.  I loved playing both though I can no longer play the IOS version.

The storyline was so much fun to watch unfold.  I was literally on the edge of my seat hoping that Nina and Max were able to find her father and get a better understanding of the Tunguska case her father was investigating.  There were so many fun locations that went all over Europe.

There was one thing that I didn't care for in the game, and the was the voice actress for Nina.  The voice actress sounded very stiff, somewhat emotionless, and overall just bored.  This really put a damper on the game since you play Nina for a majority of the game and it kind of affect how I view this game.  Other than Nina's voice, I still found the game enjoyable over all.

The game graphics were fantastic for the time this game was released and it was probably what made me want to play more games that had more of a realistic character design and worlds design.  However, compared to game that we see now, they are slightly block and look less realistic.

Thank you everyone for reading.  I had so much fun playing this game and I'm so happy that I was able to play it.  I want to know, what do you think about the game and have you played it before?  I would love to know down in the comment below.  If you want to play the game yourself then you can get your own copy of the game over on Steam.

Until next time,
