[prMac.com] St. Petersburg, Russia - Astar-Nevosoft has announced the release of Laura Jones and the Secret Legacy of Nikola Tesla for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch platforms. This title combines hidden object gameplay with inventory puzzles and mini-games. The story begins when Laura heads to Europe to visit her Grandmother and discovers a letter from the famous 20th century inventor Nikola Tesla. The note provides clues to the whereabouts of several parts that can be used to activate one of Tesla's lost inventions - a machine capable of providing a clean energy alternative to oil.
The adventure in 14 chapters offers a mixture of hidden object searches (from a list, or by silhouette), inventory-based puzzles and mini-games. The challenges always tie in nicely with the story, and are as varied as collecting medical supplies to treat a cut finger, designing a logo for the back of a jacket, and catching the chickens that have escaped from their cages. Certain parts of the screen can be zoomed in on, and occasionally you will also get spot-the-difference puzzles, or have to move objects aside to uncover the item you are seeking.
Mini-games, which can be replayed from the main menu once unlocked, include tangrams, gear and string puzzles, and brainteasers involving arranging symbols and weights in the correct order. Another great aspect of the game is that, even if the plot itself is fictional, it deals with the very real Nikola Tesla, who was a famous inventor.
