Cert: 12+
Platform: DS, Wii, PC
Genre: Mystery

These mystery games are well suited to the DS. You can dip in and out of them on the bus, at the airport or during boring dinner with the in-laws. Secret Files: Tunguska offers a seductive premise not unlike that bit at the start of the X-Files before the music. There was an explosion one hundred years ago in Syberia. Your father, (a renowned scientist) was sent to investigate in the 1940's and something went wrong. Now, in 2009, he has disappeared, and it is up to you to find him.

Like its PC ancestors, this game relies on interacting with the screen to find clues. On the DS the stylus, (and on the Wii the wiimote) they have replaced the traditional point and click mouse interface.

You are quickly immersed into the story of the game, and while the clues are not overly obvious they are mainly based on common sense, so anyone can pick it up and have a go.
If you have finished Professor Layton this is the closet I have to offer at the moment.
