The final game in the House of Da Vinci trilogy has landed on the App Store, bringing the acclaimed and visually spectacular series of puzzle games to a close.
In case you need bringing up to speed, the House of Da Vinci games are story-driven puzzlers that see you solving tricky environmental brainteasers across renaissance Italy.
You play as Giacomo, Leonardo Da Vinci’s chronically overworked apprentice. Your goal is to manipulate mechanical gadgets and mind-twisting inventions in order to solve puzzles that can span entire rooms.
If you’ve played any of the Room games, you get the general idea.
Except The House of Da Vinci brings a whole new twist to the format in the form of the Oculus Perpetua, a contraption that lets you reach into the past and make changes that affect your surroundings in the present.
The Room is 3D. The House of Da Vinci is 4D.
Story-wise, The House of Da Vinci 3 picks up where its predecessor left off, with Giacomo in dire straits and Leonardo AWOL.
You’ll need to work your way through a succession of puzzles set in a variety of gorgeously rendered locations. As you progress you’ll uncover more and more about Leonardo’s revolutionary time machine and the shadowy Ordo lustitialis sect.
It’s business as usual, then, but more so. Developer Blue Brain Games has pulled out all the stops for this grand finale. The team has polished up the visuals, refined the controls to make them more intuitive than ever, and even used motion capture to make the cut-scenes pop.
The House of Da Vinci 2 is one of the most successful games ever developed in Central Europe. Plus, it’s one of the most acclaimed titles on the App Store period, with an average user rating of 4.8.
You can expect the same for The House of Da Vinci 3 when the reviews start rolling in.
