Nostradamus: The Last Prophecy

This app is wisely woven in a story. The last prophecy is supposed to take place between March 27 and March 31 in 1566. Nostradamus died on July 2 1566, so this app seems apt for the name ‘The Last Prophecy.’

The game begins with Queen Catherine de Medici making a visit to Nostradamus to help break a curse on the royal family after a number of unsolved murders. It was Nostradamus who predicted this curse. But when the Queen visits him, he is already an old man confined to his bed. He entrusts his eldest daughter Madeleine to solve this mystery for him. And thus begins the first phase of cross dressing of the game because as a woman Madeleine is not permitted to do the investigation. The game takes place in the duration of 5 days. It takes you through all the adventure and puzzles Madeleine goes through.
