Free Mystery Game App: Empress 2

Empress 2 is a free mystery game for Windows 8. Before we get into the review of the app, let me tell you that the app’s size is pretty large, almost 202 MB. When you run the game, you will be shown a very well made game movie, and it will be played back to you in a full screen format. You can skip this via the Esc. key, which will forward you to the main menu of the game where a new game can be started by clicking the Play button. The gameplay field will now be revealed, and you will be able to collect clues etc. by clicking on them. Clues are littered all across the game field and you can collect them via a simple left click on them. These go to your inventory. Mini puzzles and games are present throughout the game at strategic points, and completing each of these successfully will award you with valuable rewards.

Empress 2 can be obtained for free from the Windows App Store.

When you run the game, you will be shown the game movie as I had already discussed above. The movie has amazing effects and can be skipped at any time via the Esc. button on your keyboard, or simply by clicking on the screen.

The movie has good sound effects and if you are plugged to a sound system, you’ll observe that it actually has surround sound effects. Once the movie has been skipped, you will be presented with main menu of the game. In the main menu, when you click on the Play button, you will be presented with the instructions of playing the game. In the instructions screen, you can click on the Start button to begin the gameplay of the game.

The main features of this app are thus wrapped up. You can also check out the Brightstone Mysteries: Paranormal Hotel and the Mushroom Age games.

The verdict…

Empress 2 is a very well designed game which has gripping background tracks and intense graphics to keep you hooked. My only complaint with the app is that it has a large size and drains a lot of battery while running, but apart from that, the app is phenomenal. I hope the developers optimize it in future updates and hence make it a truly great app in all aspects!

I rate the app a 4.5 out of 5!
