Description

In Gooka: The Mystery of Janatris, the main part of the game is a puzzle-solving adventure in third-person 3D perspective. You play as a young and noble Supreme Judge in a medieval fantasy scenario. The plot involves looking for a cure for your poisoned wife and finding your kidnapped son. Of course there is a greater conspiracy aloft and some ancient mysteries to be revealed.

As a RPG element, the character will enhance his attributes and acquire skills during turn-based fights with monsters and other enemies. These fights are tactically challenging and most of them require a well-planned strategy to win.
