  • Summary: Want to see my Mole? If you're tired of hammering bird brains against the wall, go underground in the tap adventure game, City of Secrets. Requires logic and puzzle solving skills so turn your brain back on and prove you know your head from a Mole in the ground.

    Enter a brilliant high
    definition world of revolution, mystery, and adventure as you pull together the clues and solve puzzles to uncover the sinister plot. The hero's – Rex, the dog, and Mr. Moles - well of course - the mole, can't save Poco Pane without you.

    City of Secrets is a classical point and click adventure game presented with beautiful hand drawn art, layered backgrounds and a 3D character cast, fully spoken throughout.

    Over 1 million games sold. Rex and Mr. Moles have been on adventures across Europe for many years and are making their debut globally on iOS. We love to entertain and are confident that aideMMedia is one palindrome you will instantly love.

    The game can be tougher than your college entrance exam and it isn’t clear yet if you will need help from your friends or some little kid to solve the sinister plot.

    There are several methods in the game to point players in the right direction such as a notebook containing a list of completed and 'to-do' tasks - and a hint system giving a written clue for the next most important task if you really get stuck.

    Better than an IQ test, challenge your friends to see who can solve the sinister plot first. Good luck!

    The story is not that deep, but still the game manages to incorporate a lot of characters and locations. City of Secrets gets my warmest recommendation.

    City of Secrets is a very eye-catching and solid game, but the story and characters are too forgettable for this to become a true adventure classic.

    While not perfect, the game offers a lot to get excited about. Excellent visuals and voice work, and a wonderfully fun story to play through make City of Secrets well worth your time.

    If you can look past the flat humor and bland story, City of Secrets is classic point-and-click adventure fun.

    The characters and world that Aidem Media has created are great, easily on par with some of the more memorable characters of adventure games of old. If this is what we can expect from this company, color me excited to see what they do with a sequel.

    City of Secrets is attractive and welcoming to newcomers, but the plodding story, forgettable characters, weak puzzles, and atrocious voice-acting ensure it's destined to stay a secret.

    Unfortunately, it also features some of the things that remind us why adventure games fell out of the mainstream, with tedious fetch quests, aggravating scenarios and a spirit-crushing trash-sorting mini-game conspiring to gradually strip the joy out of it all.
