The third installment in the classic point ‘n’ click adventure game series that was launched in 2006. In Secret Files 3: The Archimedes Code, we assume the role of the well-known pair of protagonists, Nina Kalenko and Max Gruber (optionally, two other characters, as well), yet again. This time around, the heroes try to solve the mystery of the Pi. During their adventure not only do they visit various corners of our planet but also a post-apocalyptic world and even travel back in time to the ancient Alexandria and renaissance Florentia. Traditionally, our tasks involve exploring locations, gathering and using items, talking to non-player characters, and solving various kinds of puzzles that include numerous arcade logic mini-games. Contrary to its predecessors, Secret Files 3 forces us to make mutually exclusive choices that lead to one of four alternative conclusions of the story.
