    The Last King of Africa definitely has the opportunity to bring adventure to a while new generation of mobile gamers.

    Ultimately, it is a solid, but forgettable, experience that newcomers to the point-and-click genre will enjoy much more than old timers.

    It would have been lovely to see The Last King of Africa (Paradise) showing its full colors for the iPhone, however it'll take a hardcore genre fan to forgive the majority of its flaws in this release.

    Maybe it's for the dilated plot or maybe for the lack of great turns of events in the first hours, but The Last King of Africa doesn't look suitable for being splitted into small episodes. It's an extremely linear and really short game, that greatly disfigures near other point-and-click adventures on the App Store, like Monkey Island 2: Special Edition and Hector: Badge of Carnage.
