When I played "The Detective's Apprentice 1" I enjoyed it very much. When I saw "The Detective's Apprentice 2" in the Blacksmith, I downloaded, expecting something exciting, funny and mysterious... and I found it! In this scenario you have to find El Cid, a fugitive that has escaped from the jail. You have to investigate, and at the end you have to decide if El Cid has escaped by ship, if he´s hidden inside the forest or in the city, depending in the hints you have gathered during the scenario. You will have to find hints, receive tip offs and interrogate the witnesses, etc etc etc.

The map design is really good. It has some tricks, like the shipyard, the stadium, etc etc. I didn´t see any problems with the map, so it has a 5.

The creativity is the best thing of this scenario. There are more hints that in the first part, and it can be really difficult to know where´s El Cid if you haven´t pay attention durint the scenario. Then the cities have got lots of tricks, specially map tricks. The storyline is really original, like in the first part. It deserves a solid 5.

The story and instructions are great, but no perfect. The history, hints message, bmp, etc etc is very good, but the instructions during the game were a little confusing. Sometimes I didn´t know what to do, and I had to load the scenario and re-read the dialogues again. Anyway I hadn´t got too many problems, so it has a 4.

Balance: Destroy the base of the bad guys was too easy. But when the two characters were alone the enemies were hard to kill. Of course the objective of this scenario isn´t the action, is investigate and guess where´s El Cid (you have to think a lot!), so I think the balance is good, but it could be harder. It´s a 4.

The scenario was really funny, and I enjoyed it very much. But it has got some bugs. For example if you don´t accept the treat of the widow, you cannot receive the horses... and without the horses some triggers don´t work. For example an objective was: "Bring James and the other (I don´t remember the name!) to the ruins of the base". I brought them but nothing happened. Finally I got the horses and the trigger worked. And there are 3 or 4 examples like this, but they aren´t very serious, so the playability has a 4.

This scenario is different, and very very funny. If you like Agatha Christie or the police novels, you MUST download "The Detective's Apprentice 2". If you don´t... I recommend donwload it anyway!
