The boxart reminds me of scooby doo.
this show is pretty old, i didn't know it was even being aired anymore... used to watch this in the early 00's
Never heard of the cartoon.
"In this adventure and exploration game, the player has to send horrible monsters back to their own dimension and solve paranormal circumstances with Martin, Diana and Java. The game is based on the popular Martin Mystery cartoon, produced by Marathon Media, in which Martin, Diana and Java investigate paranormal occurences in mysterious worlds full of strange creatures."
Apparently its a top down adventure title.
I'd prefer to see
he'd love for us to play it, but he thinks it'd blow our minds
adventure games are the way to go on the DS but some just dont show enough effort
Is it any good? I have to embarrassingly admit that I kinda like the series, haha!
Is that a David Bowie quote??
It's a well known italian comic created by Alfredo Castelli, edited by Bonelli Editore... its original name is Martin Mystère and it (was) is quite good... dunno anything about this game...
This is a horrible ripoff of one of our (italian) best comic strips, Martin Mystére.
The names are the same, but the art... The boxart looks nothing like the actual characters, and if (and boy I never wanted to be wrong as badly as I do now) if this is an official readaptation of the comic book, then... Godawful work. If this is not related, where are lawsuits when we need 'em?
Tried it.....game seems kinda weak. You move around solely using the touchscreen, collecting clues and encountering traps (and I'd guess monsters at some point). The characters move around too slowly and get stuck on every little thing you bump into. Things that you must interact with have a little sparkle on them, so no real searching is required, just going from room to room looking for the sparkles. Graphics are nothing special....merely functional. Sound seems to consist mostly of morning cartoon spooky music......not really all that spooky.
Like many of these types of games, certain characters are required to do certain tasks. A simple drop down menu allows you to select the characters, save and access the inventory.
This might be interesting for some people, but it just seems boring and too tediously slow moving to hold my interest. Not too mention the forced touchscreen controls annoy me. It could have used the D-pad and buttons just as easily, but NOOOOOO, freakin' touchscreen everything. GAH!
Sort of reminds me of the Harry Potter games.....without the magic or as good of graphics. Bleh.
This mini-review is only based on the first 10 of 14 rooms of the first mission (I couldn't tolerate playing it any further), so there a slight possibility that it might get better, but I doubt it. it looks more like a game for young kids than anything any REAL gamer would care about.
Martyn Mistere, Nathan Never, Dylan Dog, Mister NO....
Dylan Dog is a great comic book, I agree Too bad we can`t get a decent game out of it.
I don't think is a good idea turning something into a videogame... I say go for an original concept

it is related.
I immediately thought the same thing! With the purple and the monster in the background.
I could never get into the cartoon when it aired on US channels. I dont know, I couldn't sit through more than 5 minutes of the show...I thought it was some sort of Scooby Doo type show but I cant be sure--I think that his monsters were real.
