Here is the first exclusive regional game review!
This is a French game that will takes you through one of the most beautiful place in France, Le Mont-Saint-Michel!
I have the chance to know this incredible place after a visit and a night, and believe me, the game is absolutely identical as the real place!
L’Ange et le Démon is a French game produced by Smart Move back in 1992.
Have you played Myst? Well, this is a similar game, played as picture-by-picture, but instead of traveling in a 3D environment, you are walking in a real photographs place, at Le Mont-Saint-Michel isle located in Normandie, the north of France.
You play the role of a person who as to save le Mont-Saint-Michel from an apocalyptic even! The sword of Angel Gabriel has been stolen after an invocation, and you will have to find it to bring it back to its place before the final combat between the Angel and the Demon (the game’s name). With more than 2500 photographs and 250 audio sequences, you will walk through the streets, inside the monastery and visit places not allowed for tourists.
You start arriving to the Mont-Saint-Michel by boat, listening to the demon talking to you, asking to leave right away.
You need to understand French to solve many enigmas, listen some tips and find your way to the top of the monastery.
At the main menu screen you can choose between “Guide” for an explanation of the game, “Générique” to view the credits, “Jouer” to play the game, “Prologue” to re-watch the introduction, “Mot-clef” for passwords, and “Quitter” to leave the game.
You have to find keys and hidden objects on all the 7 levels, always under an mysterious musical ambient that will keeps you on your guard.
The place is empty of visitors (this is one of the most visited French monument), a great way to discover it perfectly!
For the movements, you have to ways. Use the icons on the bottom of the screen to turn left, right, forward, backward and turn back, repeat what you listened using “Bis”, define your location using the map (you are on the red circle), help, and leave the game.
You can also (and it is recommended) to click on the images to choose directions (some are hidden) and take objects.
The game is beautifully created, the music background puts you ready for all situations! The environment is as beautiful as the real place and you will play as you also will discover the Mont-Saint-Michel!
A beautiful game for all who understand French, sadly no multi-language are available…
