In a futuristic "light cyberpunk" world where animals have replaced humans, privileged citizens live under a protective dome from the ambient air pollution while others struggle to make a living on the outside. Brok, a private detective and former boxer, lives with Graff, the son of his deceased wife. Although he could never elucidate her accident, recent events may shed some light on an even more tragic outcome... one that may be linked to their own existence. Will they be able to withstand the threats of this corrupted world and face their own destiny...?


The puzzles are set at just about the right level

Brok the InvestiGator is a point and click adventure game that also mixes in beat 'em up and RPG elements.

For me, one of the elements that makes for an enjoyable game in this genre, other than the puzzle element, is production values. A solid collection of competent vocal acting always helps me to invest in the characters. Brok delivers on this front, with each character having an impressive vocal actor delivering the lines. This helps greatly, especially as a lot of the dialogue is humorous, and getting the right tone and delivery is important in making sure the jokes don't fall flat.


Brok the InvestiGator is a pretty solid offering that doesn't disappoint

The puzzles are set at just about the right level, with them being just difficult enough to get you thinking, but not so hard as to have you switching off in frustration. The beat 'em up elements add another level to the game. However, the fights can be skipped but you'll need to use your brawn in order to solve some puzzles. The more enemies you fight (and this includes in the training arena) the more experience points you earn, the stronger you will become - helping you to defeat the tougher enemies.

For fans of classic point and click adventures Brok the InvestiGator is a pretty solid offering that doesn't disappoint.
