Today we’ll be taking a look at another really awesome Android game. This is a classic sort of game, a game in which you’re supposed to just examine pictures or certain locations and figure out clues and links between events. In other words, you step into the shoes of a detective. And what better detective to become than one in the time of Sherlock Holmes.
As you may have guessed in the title, this game is about Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde. Now you may wonder, who are those two people and why should I care about them? Well, they two are characters from the book with the same name. It’s probably one of the more famous pieces of British Literature that was referenced countless times in both movies, games or even other books.
What was it about, you may ask? A simple case of multiple personalty disorder, or as you may also call it, multiple personality schizophrenia. What our good Doctor Jekyll was doing was trying to develop some revolutionary potion / concoction that would push humans beyond their limits ( you are aware that a human can only use up to 10% of his brain capacity in exceptional cases and up to 20% of his muscular capacity in the same exceptional cases ). Well, the good doctor managed indeed to create it, but this is where we see why it is immoral and why it goes against the human laws of common sense or decency to experiment on humans. While Jekyll did indeed develop Something, he couldn’t test it on anyone so he tried it on himself, thus bettering all of his abilities, but since nothing good comes without a price, it did have a few serious drawbacks.
What happened was that his mind shattered into two halves. We had Doctor Jekyll, the respected physicist by day, and Mister Hyde, a psychopathic super-powered murderer by night. While rare are the cases in which the two personalities are aware of the existence of one another, the case of Doctor Jekyll was somewhat different, as both personalities knew about the existence of one another and still lived in harmony. Mister Hyde only “helped” Jekyll with his problems, but in an illegal manner. What people managed to tick off Jekyll by day, Hyde would hunt them down and punish them by night.
Well, let’s say you have enough as a general teaser to make you read the book and / or play the game.
