Syberia Review: Probably the Best Adventure Game on Android (Video)
Syberia is a real treat and it was so back in 2002 when it was launched and I was playing it for hours on end on the PC and it’s also a treat now, available on mobile devices. This point and click game has been reviewed by me on the Evolio X8 tablet, as shown in the video below.
This is a game straight from the genius Benoit Sokal, who envisioned the Syberia games and a few more adventures of this kind. This title goes for $5 and it tells the story of Kate Walker, a lawyer from New York who reaches a town in the French Alps and tries to handle the sale of a robot and toy factory. Everything goes wrong and Kate is now involved with tracking down Hans, the rightful heir to the factory and the man who must sign the papers to let it go on sale.
The game is filled with lovable characters, including Oscar, the automaton and of course Hans Voralberg. The point and click action has been turned into tap and interact and you’ll be solving a ton of puzzles in this title, as you progress. There’s also a lot of walking around to do and you’ll reach Eastern Russia and other remote areas.
There’s a strong cyberpunk atmosphere here and the dialogs are top notch, as is the voice acting. There’s a lot of keys, wheels, mechanisms, cogs and notes to take into account when solving these puzzles… The only bad thing I can say about the game is the fact it autosaves, instead of letting you save when you want.
Overall, this is a game that gets a 10 out of 10 from me. You can download it from here.
