Montreuil (France), October 3th 2012. French software publisher Anuman Interactive invites gamers on a new journey in search of legendary Mayan relics with “Jennifer Wolf and the Mayan Relics” for PC, Mac and iOS. This interactive adventure game is marketed under the label Microïds - Games for All.
According to the Mayan calendar, 21 December 2012 will usher in great upheaval, as it will mark the end of a great cycle in the history of the universe. While some people believe that the end of the world is nigh, Anuman Interactive remains determined to provide fun and games right to the end. It has announced the release of the hidden objects adventure game “Jennifer Wolf and the Mayan Relics.” Based on an original script the game sends you off on a hunt for Mayan artifacts as you seek to find the vanished fragments of the famous Mayan calendar.
You play the part of Jennifer Wolf who goes to join her father Edgar on an archaeological dig that he is running near Mexico City. When she arrives at the site, Edgar seems to have disappeared. He has, however, left his daughter a 16th century manuscript that tells the story of the Mayans’ last holy calendar which was broken into five pieces and entrusted to guardians for safekeeping. Hoping to find her father safe and sound Jennifer takes up the quest he began and in turn sets off in search of the fragments of the legendary calendar.
You progress through the game in object search phases. Jennifer must, for example, take samples from the dig to carbon date them (Carbon 14 is a method used by archaeologists to estimate the age of the pieces they discover). The game’s phases are supplemented by a range of mini-games like puzzles, sliding blocks, Match 3, and tap-to-shoot, which require you to think logically and show your skills.
The objects you gather during your quest are automatically stored in an interactive inventory that you can then access to resolve situations you encounter in the game. For example, Jennifer must use a small flat brush to gently remove the earth covering a buried skeleton.
As you advance through the story you should pay attention to detail and use the game’s special functionalities. With the parallax, for example, you can view a scene from different angles.
Some objects are hidden off-screen and you see them only when you tilt your iPhone or iPad to one side or the other. With PC and Mac, you can change your viewpoint using your mouse.
The “Clues” feature facilitates your progress. Clues are limited in time and number. To get new ones, you have to watch out for Maya suns hidden in the scenery. They help you gather new clues as the adventure unfolds.
Finally, in the main menu you can access an option called “Extras” where you can replay mini-games and puzzles you have already solved in the course of the adventure.
The game "Jennifer Wolf and the Mayan Relics" has been on sale since October 3th 2012 from the App Store and all main download platforms in French, English, Italian, German and Spanish.
