- Inca -

You never really know what to expect from a Coktel vision game other than there's probably a weird story and often some obscure puzzles. The story of Inca is about the ancient Inca empire and a prophecy that one day a man will arise and he will rebuild the empire, in space that is. You play the part of El Dorado, a seemingly golden man who is though to be the man of the prophecy. Apu, one of your ancestors, will guide you in your quest in which you will have to fight, fly through space and solve puzzles to restore the empire.

The game is played from a first person view and the action starts after you leave your home base in space. The planet you are flying towards contains one of the treasures of the Inca, an item that will give you the power over time. You fly in your spacecraft and you must dodge or destroy any debris that is in your way with you lasers. You can speed up with the right mouse button but be carefull of the rocks. Once you reach the planet there is a sequence that comes right out of star wars (ep4) in which you fly through a trench and must race a number of enemy spacecraft. They can be destroyed with a few well placed shots but the aim is to get to the end before them. These enemies look a lot like the old spanish conquistadors complete with the same kind of armor. Once you get to the end the game switches to adventure mode which is much more like previous Coktel games.

The adventure part has you finding items onscreen and manipulating them to do what you want and allowing you to continue. Altough the puzzles can be somewhat obscure with a little experimenting you can usually get a long way and the game is fairly forgiving. The puzzles range from using the right object at the right time to doing some pixelhunting but some are a matter of logic. Unfortunately these sequences also contain a lot of MAZES and while traversing them you will need to fight off your enemies with a handlaser. These fights don't really serve much of a purpose other than slowing you down which is a shame.

Mmm what can you really say about Inca, I know it did quite well as far as sales is concerned and it's certainly an enjoyable game but there are so many annoying bits. The action sequences aren't really that difficult but they can distract you from the adventuring especially when you don't survive and have to do it again. The worst thing are the mazes though and you'll have to make a map or something because every corner and door looks alike. With all these annoyances the game is still quite fun but if you're pure into adventuring I'm not what you'll think of it.

Overal rating: 7/10
