You are a relic hunter in search of the Cryptode. You begin your search in Rome. While searching you are confronted by the Group, a band of men who are also in search of the Cryptode. You are almost killed in the fight.

You must use weapons, skill, strategy and luck to find the cryptode before the Group does. You can choose between many different transportation methods like taxi, train, car, bus, helicopter, and plane. There is one secret level in the game, see if you can find it.

To make it a little fun, there are also four different endings:

Best/Special Ending - Exceptional Gameplay

Normal Ending, You did not meet the requirements for Best Ending but you found all the combinations for the Cryptode

Lucky Ending - Guessed on the Cryptode combination.

Wrong Guess Ending - Did not unlock the Cryptode and lose the game.

<b>Please PM me your ending!!!</b>

I would have given it an eight if not for the long fight on the mountain and it not being so difficult because I was just guessing on what to do at times. On the other hand, it had a nice use of items, amazing amount of options, and great spelling. It had action, mystery, puzzle solving, and just felt like a cool game.

Excellent job.

7/8

Hmm, you use of the editor is amazing, but the constant mazes are really annoying (try to at least add a little variety, instead of making every room and every passage way the same) and the gun fights definatly need work (why are head shots so useless? Shouldn't their be more tactical options?). A little description would help a lot.
Also the final fight was just stupid, I must have killed like 20 guys before running out of bullets, then helath, and then by trying to use my armour I ended up travelling back in time to an earlier part of the game. You could have just shortened the fight, instead of making an epic battle.
Otherwise a pretty good game

This is an incredible game with a fun storyline that I found reminicent of many of the classic Adventure Games. Aside from a way-too-long final battle, the gameplay was very impressive. The author really took the system to the limit, including a driving-around chapter (with map and a YOU ARE HERE dot) and a Casino. I highly recommend taking the time to play this.

It is a great story, but the shooting in the mountains were very repetitive

"Normal Ending
You pull apart the ends of the Cryptode, revealing the treasure inside. You have been thinking long and hard, spending sleepless, restless nights about what may be within the Cryptode.

As you pull apart the Cryptode, something shiny drops to the ground. You pick it up and open your hand. There lies the biggest, heaviest diamond you have ever seen!

After about an hour of just staring and examing the diamond, you decide to take a small rest before making your descent. You wake up the next day refreshed and ready. You gather your things, making sure the diamond is in one of pockets. You step out of the cave and feel the familiar gust of wind.

Getting back down felt faster than getting up, you think as you enter the airport in Tibet the next day. Two hours later, you are on the airplane heading home.

You step out of the airport gates and enter the main rooms. You are instantly greeted by reporters, tv cameras, relic hunters, and just normal, everyday citizens. They ask you questions relating to your adventure and the Cryptode. After a month of fame and celebrating, you find yourself in your home. Just yesterday you were declared the richest man alive. You didn't even have to sell the diamond! About 10 relic hunters paid you for the Cryptode itself and it totalled over 900 billion dollars!"

Ah, nice. I wonder how i can get to the lucky ending by guessing it right. 8/8
