Return to Mysterious Island “wet my appetite” for Kheops games. I thought it would be hard to beat, but Voyage really is even a better game and longer too, and that is saying A LOT, considering how much I enjoyed Return to Mysterious Island.
This game has a wide assortment of puzzles (inventory, logic, environmental, and some “sort of timed” ones - no fear on the last type, they are easy) and so many different adventurers will enjoy the game, especially because many of the puzzles can be solved in different ways; for example the store can be used to buy items if you hate chemistry puzzles.
Notably, some puzzles put in a new twist I never saw in other adventure games. I won’t spoil it, so I won’t list them.
Great graphics (not surprising since it is Kheops who developed it), superb audio (so many ambient sounds in this game and voice acting is top notch and the music extremely well done and very suitable to the atmosphere). The story is minimal, so for story fanatics, this may not be your cup of tea.
The game also breaks new ground on immersion. When I played the game I felt like I was on the moon and trying to adapt to my surroundings, learning about the environment and culture/language of its inhabitants - creatures and plants alike.
The game is well suitable for all ages in my opinion, and I highly recommend it to everyone.
