Description

As its predecessor, Nick Chase and the Deadly Diamond is a hidden object game with adventure elements, where the player assumes the role of a private detective in a cartoon world inspired by classic noir novels and films. The cutscenes are presented as comic book panels between each chapter. This time, Nick receives a broken Meso-American tablet by mail, and after assembling the pieces he starts an investigation to find the origin of the artifact.

Most of the time, the objective is to explore an area comprised of a few screens, and collect all the objects required to solve the puzzles present on every location. The inventory tray at the bottom stores all the items, from where they can be dragged and dropped on logical portions of the scenery to perform an action or complete a task. Some places bring up a separate seek-and-find scene cluttered with assorted objects, where the goal is to find and click on all the items listed at the bottom. Some of the collected objects are stored on the inventory to be used later. The hint button is the chamber of Nick's revolver, shooting the exact position of one of the required items. Extra hints can be collected as bullets scattered around the scenery.

Mini-games appear occasionally, where the player has to find the all the differences between two similar images, solve a Tower of Hanoi puzzle with stacked piles of cars, reassemble a scrambled mental picture of a flashback memory, and complete other challenges. They can be optionally skipped after a few minutes.
