The A-Files is an educational 'learn through play' game. As an alien form of life the player visits planet Earth to learn the English language. The game starts from selecting one of six available human bodies. By exploring six life areas (like shopping, eating out, home works) in London, the player will encounter dozen of tasks. Some of the tasks are introduced as a mini games, such as discovering all pairs of objects, planting flowers in the right place or selling appropriate sports equipment, some other tasks are presented as interactive conversations or tours, not related strictly to the games. For every good answer the player receives the energy points, each bad answer drop the level down. After several bad responses in a row the player must pass a special Earth police anti-alien test. Failure ends in prison.
The A-Files is fully digitized, allows to use a microphone and has a built in encyclopedia of knowledge, translator from English to Scandinavian and lecturer of selected phrases.
