Letters From Nowhere 2 Review: Mystery & Detective Game That’s Actually Pretty Fun (Video)
Letters from Nowhere 2 was actually the first time I came in contact with a title from G5 Entertainment and after some research I figured out that they put out mystery titles in the vein of those from Big Fish Games. You know the kind, those that require you to find objects in a certain big picture, by using a magnifying glass and compare two images, looking for 10 differences. One of these games is Letters From Nowhere 2, that we tested on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.
Made by G5 Entertainment, the game takes up a bit over 200 MB of space and it’s free. However, after playing the game for a while it will require you make some purchases, which I didn’t quite like. The story goes like this: Audrey collected letters helped by the dead postman, hoping they will bring her to Patrick, the missing husband. However, she now reaches a mystery town. Now she finds out that the husband is related to a cursed family and is doomed to die. She must confront evil, visit 30 mysterious locations, that include a witch’s den, an area near the cemetery and a creepy gas station.
There are powers that can aid you in your quest like the thermometer that plays the hot and cold game, being ice cold when you’re far from objects you must find and fiery when you’re near. There’s also a camera that reveals hidden objects. You collect points by finding the objects listed on the screen and these points buy you the option to use the magnifying glass to figure out where the objects are and they also buy you the thermometer and other items. There are various mini game included, like those that involve combining objects, fitting them into tight spaces or spotting differences between pictures.
We give the game an 8 out of 10 and you can download it from here.
