- Ecoquest 2 - lost secret of the rain forest -

Altough Sierra did make several educational titles the one that I remember most was ecoquest, a game in which you played a young boy named Adam who had a great undersea adventure and saved an underwater city. This time Adam is heading towards the rain forest with his father when his father's things are stolen. Adam is left behind while his father takes care of things but he quickly finds himself on another adventure, this time to save the rainforest.

The game starts at a town but soon you'll be deep in the rain forest. Your dad gave you a new toy called an ecocorder which records facts about the rainforest if you use it on the object. This will not only give you usefull information about the real rainforest but also gives you points to total your score. The story revolves around a tree who is the spirit of the rainforest but he is old and the young tree that was supposed to replace him was felled by an explosion. The tree has chosen you to help him save the rainforest by removing the badguys and restoring the tree sapling.

Given the name of the game and it's predecessor you have to do good things for the environment like cleaning up litter that people have left lying around which will give you points as well. You should also try and gather as much facts with your ecocorder as well and almost each screen has a number of facts you can collect, which makes the game very suitable for children as you can learn a lot while playing the game. The game uses the same interface as other Sierra adventures so the point and click interface is easy to use and the graphics and music are of very high quality.

Altough the subject matter might not appeal to some people the game was intended for kids and to provide some information about the rain forest. I liked the first game and this one is no different. The difficulty level isn't very high and you won't get stuck very often since most of the time you the puzzles are all in a small area. If you're looking for a challenging adventure game this is definately not it however it is a fun adventure game that you can play through on a rainy day or something similar.

Overal rating: 8/10
