Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death Collector's Edition
Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death is a hidden object puzzle adventure game where you'll have to scour the streets of New Orleans for a mysterious man right when the town is in the middle of the Mardi Gras carnival.
The night of Mardi Gras, when strange things happen
The events begin to unfold at the Jazz Pepper Club, located on 76 Chestnut Street, a world famous establishment where famous musicians from all over the world have sing and have been appreciated by a select audience.
You will take on the role of a young woman, who's father is the owner of the world-famous Jazz Pepper Club. Back in New Orleans you're glad to see that you've landed just in the middle of the Mardi Gras celebration.
You enter the club and a man dressed in a white suit storms out. When you inspect the place you see that everyone has been petrified, including your father. In his hand is a note, warning him about the arrival of a certain Frankie, a dangerous person.
You must now put together all the pieces of the puzzle and try to find a way to save everyone in the bar, including your own father while stopping the evil Frankie from causing more harm.
As you begin to investigate, you find out that things are not what they seems and this mystery is filled with dangers and even undead. Seek out the protection of a voodoo witch in order to put an end to the killing spree.
The hidden object scenes are beautifully drawn and objects can also be found in normal scenes so keep your eyes open. Puzzle will sometimes require an additional item or two so revisiting locations is always a good idea.
There are four different difficulty levels you can choose from, but you can also customize it depending your puzzle solving skill level. There is amp that will help you get around more easily around the city. In order to activate a location you must first find a reference in the game and search the street on the ma. A taxi cab driver will take you there in an instant.
Relax while solving
Being a Collector's Editions, means the game has some extra perks from the regular version. This includes a bonus chapter where you can learn more about the villain's past. A strategy guide is also included if you feel you've run out of clues.
The game's music is made out of different jazz songs. They're beautifully integrated with the game and will be able to transport to the New Orleans of the 30's.
I found the game to be rather simple and didn't feel the need of using the hint button. The atmosphere is great and you'll be able to learn some interesting facts about music, jazz and New Orleans.
