|A provincial Russian town has been shaken in disbelief: their prized, rare, striped elephant, Baldakhin, disappeared from the zoo in the dead of night. The main suspect is its notorious former owner, Karbofoss.|
Here is a new free to download detective themed puzzle game for Windows Phone. You can start the adventure for free and then unlock the full game for a small fee.
The Pilot Brothers, or originally Kolobki Brothers, originated in the Soviet Union in the mid 80s. They were the cartoon heroes always getting into trouble while solving crimes. Later on they even got to host a show as virtual hosts.
Pilot Brothers is a weird point and click puzzle adventure. Weird in the sense that there is no focus on dialogues or written clues whatsoever. Compared to other popular games of the era, and genre such as Day of the Tentacle, The Secret of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion this is truly peculiar. Not even the interface bears any connection to any language, as everything is based on images and icons.
There is a lot of language going on in the game nevertheless, but that is body language from the Pilot Brothers, characters and animals. This is fairly universal, and as it is quite exaggerated it becomes both funny, and quite easy to follow. Other than that the brothers grunt, chirp and chatter about without actually making any intelligent conversation.
