  • Not a Nancy Drew game

    This is not a Nancy Drew game. From what I can gather, it was released by another company called The Young Socratics. The website describes the game this way: "Odyssey is a science puzzle adventure game focused on scientific reasoning and argumentation in astronomy and mechanics from the ancient Greeks to Newton."

    Playing this game forces you to read a book on these subjects. I would say that 80% of the game is reading pages. If you like to read science textbooks, this is the game for you.

    I finished the game and, I have to admit, I learned some things. (Being a college educated adult, I already knew some of this stuff.) It's not my favorite kind of game, but it is useful for getting kids interested in science. I would say it's geared toward at least high school. Young kids would have trouble with it.
