“Mystery Stories: Berlin Nights” develops in Berlin, as its name indicates. The story begins at Berlin’s International Airport where an investigation group arrives to investigate a peculiar mystery. Apparently, during World War 2 a super special power generator was created which could satisfy world energy needs by its own. Now, this group of investigators has to find out where its parts are in order to be able to reassemble it.
Beyond the story, the game is a game which could be categorized into the “seek & find” category. The story gives a frame for the game to develop, that’s all. Once you are playing the game what you have to do is to find certain items in different messy scenes. The game will provide a list and some hints in case you get stuck.
In the map you’ll be able to see all the places you’ll have to visit during your investigation. During some stages of the investigation you’ll have to solve puzzles in more than one location. On the left you can see how many hidden objects you need to find altogether throughout in all locations in order to successfully complete the stage.
