Genre A Point ' n ' Click Adventure Story We play a Boy whose Mother has suffered a Disease. The Father suspects that it is the Plague that is beating around him. He now instructs us as much as possible to find out as much as possible about this Disease in order to heal our Mother. Gameplay We click from Scene to Scene, collect different Items there and talk to People. Later we get special Glasses, so we can click on Items or People that do not fit in this Period period. In Between, there are various Mini-games such as a type Tetris or different Quiz Questions. You can also skip the Mini-games (it has no Effect on the priority in the Game). The whole thing is aimed more at younger Players and is probably more intended as a Learning Game. Achievements There are a total of 8 Successes. You can get everyone in a Game run. Most are story related and for others we have to solve a certain Mini-game and give the right advice To a Sick Woman. Pro/Contra + Story Simpel but OK + The Mini-games are also very Simple but also OK + Achievements Conclusion A very Simple and kuzes OK Point-n ' Click ADVENTURE

"Playing History-The Plague" is a historic learning adventure for Children. Florence In the middle of the 14th Century. The Plague is rampant in the Country. We are a young Boy, Son of a Barber whose Mother has fallen ill. Our Father is Afraid that she has the Plague. So we are sent to the City to seek Information and talk to Doctors and Clergy to give our Mother the right Treatment. Mechanically, the Game is a simple Point-and-click adventure. We need to talk to People, collect, combine and use items. But everything remains quite simple and rudimentary. Graphically, everything is child-friendly comichaft, though not really very designed. The People look more like simple Dolls and also have hardly any Facial expressions. The (English) voiceover was reasonably successful. The Speakers are at least making a sincere effort to achieve an acceptable Outcome. Through the Game, a Mouse takes us Through that keeps giving us tips and also handing us a special Gimmick: Glasses that, when we wear them, allow us to click on Things that we Don't think fit into the Middle Ages. This little Mini-game, however, has no Effect on the rather short, linear history. However, there are other small Mini-games, such as Applying Leeches to Plague Bulls or a plague glua tiris at the Cemetery. And here lies the essential Problem of the Series, which in the second Part seriously managed to bring a slave tiris that rightly got a lot Of Headwinds. Here, too, one can already see that the Developers meant well, but lack any Sensitivity to the historical Topic and have little to no Idea which Atmosphere would have been the right one. In Addition, there are some historical Inaccuracies, even stupid Mistakes, which long since rebounded Clichés about the Middle Ages. Unfortunately, the Title also turns out to be a Learning Software. As an Adventure, it is above all uninspired and striver-boring. Even Children deserve Better and Smarter. Rating: 4/10 Atmosphere 3/10 Story 5/10 Graphic 6/10 Sound 5/10 Game Mechanics 5/10 Balancing 5/10 Game Pass Conclusion: Well intentioned is far from well done. 5/10 Overall Rating
