Trails and Traces: The Tomb of Thomas Tew from Ratalaika Games and Because Because Games is a point and click adventure on PlayStation 4. You’ll be playing as one James Labbett, a detective of sorts. Your adventure begins when someone starts to shout at you while you’re walking down the street. It seems that they find themselves stuck on the roof of a building and can’t get the door open to get back inside. On top of this, there are some very filthy pigeons around him that are up top no good! This section will act as the game’s tutorial, showing you some of the gameplay basics and the type of puzzles you’re going to find during your journey.
For this point and click adventure, you’ll use the left analog stick to move a cursor around the screen, pressing the X button to open up the Actions Menu. Said Actions Menu will allow you to interact with things, investigate something, or talk to other characters. When you talk to someone, there will be different dialogue options for you to explore. You can press the Circle button to open up your inventory so that you can review the items you’ve collected. These items can either be used to interact with the location you’re currently exploring or combined with other items.
After the starting tutorial, you’ll quickly be hired to try and solve a missing person case. As expected, things are not as easy and clear as they initially seem, and a string of events will end up leading detective James Labbett to cross paths with some people who are looking for the lost treasure of one pirate by the name of Thomas Tew, hence the game’s name. Will you be able to solve the mystery and find what everyone seems to be searching for?
Trails and Traces: The Tomb of Thomas Tew has a short trophy for you to work on. The list is split into eleven Gold trophies and a single Silver trophy, and the trophies are going to pop as you progress through the game. There are no missable trophies in this one, so once you get into the final story sequence, you’ll be a couple of minutes away from seeing a new Platinum trophy pop.
Trails and Traces: The Tomb of Thomas Tew is an old-school inspired point and click adventure that has some puzzles that will remind you of those obscure puzzles from classics in the genre that require a chain of actions that wouldn’t make sense under any other circumstance. The voice acting is a bit out there, and the art style makes everything pop, but not in a good way. Trails and Traces: The Tomb of Thomas Tew is a budget point and click adventure game out on PlayStation 4 with a $4.99 price.
This Trails and Traces: The Tomb of Thomas Tew review is based on a PlayStation 4 code provided by Ratalaika Games.
