DescriptionLuka und das geheimnisvolle Silberpferd begins with our eponymous hero playing with his gang of 10-year-olds at the local playground when a knight named Sir William is suddenly teleported from his medieval past to this location, quickly hiding behind a tree. He observes Luka helping younger Patti who nearly fell off a tree house when the incident occurred. Impressed by his readiness to help others, the medieval knight makes friends with Luka and talks him into assisting with the visitor's quest which comes down to returning to the past on the back of a mysterious silver horse in order to ascend the throne. Luka then convinces his friends to join him in this adventure and sets out to investigate the nature of the silver horse and how to send Sir William back to the past.
Luka and the mysterious silver horse (translation) is the first game in a series of educational point-and-click adventures published by the crime prevention unit of the German police. The game is aimed at children between 8 to 12 years of age and is specifically designed for teaching the kids violence-free solutions to interpersonal problems. From time to time there are educational scenes embedded within the plot that will guide the player to a violence-free solution. Exemplary, there's evil Sven and his gang sniffing around the neighborhood and causing problems wherever they pass. Or there's some bad vibrations and fighting within Luka's gang, too. All of these educational scenes can be accessed separately from a special menu for teachers to show in the class. There's even a special teacher's version of the game that solely contains these special scenes.
Whatever the problem, Luka will find a way to resolve it with words, not fists. If he finds the "right" solution to a problem, he can get up to six commendations from Sir William. When scoring all six, Sir William will give Luka the accolade. Furthermore, Luka can be played as a boy or a girl. If the player chooses to be a girl, Sir William turns into Princess Katharina, but the adventure and the embedded mini games stay the same.
