Dirk Spanner and the Fallen Idol by Nokia Games Publishing brings classic detective gaming onto mobile devices with unique twists and turns around every corner.
Set in the stylish, yet seedy fictional city of New Haven, Dirk Spanner and the Fallen Idol comes to life through its comic book ambiance. Gripping yet funny stories of conflicts, romance and deception with plenty of movie stars, rip-offs, double-crosses, wigs and moustaches make this an entertaining game that will engage novices through to the most experienced game players.
“Dirk Spanner and the Fallen Idol will re-introduce the long forgotten detective game genre for mobile devices,” said Dr Mark Ollila, Director of Technology and Strategy and Head of Games Publishing, Nokia. “With the combination of stunning visuals and enthralling storylines, players cannot help but be spellbound by this game.”
Featuring Dirk as the lead private eye, players are propelled into mysterious adventures, battling an array of femme fatales and gangsters. From solving the mystery of a stolen statue and a brutal murder, to uncovering the case of an accidental penguin-related death, Dirk will not rest until the case is solved.
Players guide Dirk through mysterious assignments using the unique one-button, camera-based controls, giving players an intuitive way of exploring the city of New Haven. A jazzy soundtrack helps set the mood for each stage of the game.
Dirk Spanner and the Fallen Idol is expected to be available in the first half of 2008.
