Runaway, a World adventure
The adventure is made up of 6 main chapters. Players can explore more than 100 different places in all four corners of the globe: Alaska, Hawaii, underwater or in the sky, in the heart of the jungle or on board a huge yacht. There are tons of different colourful places, marvellous backdrops for an unforgettable adventure. Pendulo Studios has concocted a large number of tasty puzzles and scintillating enigmas of advancing difficulty levels for players to solve. But Pendulo Studios has also taken time to ensure that nobody will get stuck for too long in certain game passages; difficulty levels in comparison with the first episode remain the same. All players have to do is open their eyes and ears for clues that emerge throughout and deploy the basic level of nous required for all adventure games.
"Uh oh! Gina's got herself into a terribly sticky situation. Some guy has flipped her out of a hydroplane 3000 feet above Mala, a miniscule island with a lake containing a myriad of secrets about the mysterious past of our planet and maybe even our future.
Weird as it may appear, to reach the lake, the player must take on the world's most powerful army as well as lemurs, pirates and polar bears and, last but not least, beings gifted with extraordinary intelligence.
The craziest part of the whole tale is that the evil miscreant who has upended Gina into the unknown is a man called Brian: Brian Basco!"
This is the enigmatic description of the game provided by the game's own authors who have preferred not to give too much away before the game is released, so as not to ruin the pleasure of discovery. For there are surprises, wild new developments and astounding revelations in store for you in this great new adventure game that will appear in January 2006!
