They've done it again. Bioscopia is the second in a series of science adventures in the Quest for Knowledge series published by Tivola and developed by the talented creators of Physicus. As with its predecessor, Bioscopia is an edutainment title where the production values so far exceed the standard edutainment fare as to make it required playing for anyone who enjoys a good adventure game with challenging puzzles. It is an old-fashioned, slide-show, point-and-click, first-person delight.
This game deserves an A-. It is a flawed gem, quite an achievement considering it's an edutainment title. The people at Tivola have produced another wonderful title. I hope they continue to receive the support to provide us with more quality titles, although they must be running out of sciences to consider…
Well done, but without the edge needed to get an “A”. The game deserves a place on your shelf and the developers deserve your money.
To summarize – this is a good game, and while it probably won’t make your top ten, it still is worth playing for the unique use of educational environments in a game setting. It was fairly short, less than ten hours for an experienced adventure gamer, but there were no boring or repetitious areas. The game was paced very well.
