  • Summary: Last King of Africa invites you on a fantastic journey deep into an imaginary Africa where you play the role of young Ann Smith, daughter of the last king of Maurania. Ann is on her way to assist her dying father on his deathbed when her plane crashes near a city held by a rebel faction, on the north side of the country. Ann lives through this terrible accident and wakes up with amnesia in a prince’s palace. That is how her extraordinary journey begins. The numerous puzzles and mind-teasers throughout the game have been completely reworked and now offer an original and intuitive gameplay that takes advantage of the Nintendo DS functions. The use of the stylus, microphone and your own logic are of capital importance in solving the puzzles and mind-teasers. [Focus Home Interactive] Collapse

  1. A fine adventure with a cracking plot and some imaginative puzzles, only let down by some interface inconsistencies.
  2. Has more about it than many point-and-clicks, but it may prove frustrating.
  3. A nice approach to DS development, but the whole thing was slightly doomed to failure by the hardware. [Dec 2008, p.72]
  4. Despite its flaws, the last King of Africa turned out to be a very entertaining game for people with a soft spot for this type of genre. Too bad that the game has too many flaws to attract new gamers. The puzzles are original, without ever getting frustrating.
  5. Last King of Africa is a remake of the adventure game with the same name released for the PC in 2006. Given that Benoît Sokal, responsible for classic adventure games such as Syberia and Syberia 2, is a member of the development team this game is a big disappointment. It's a decent adventure game but it lacks that certain something that makes the experience memorable.
