Description

This is an avatar-less Telescape game that provides 360-degree room views with hotspots that reveal more detail. You complete puzzles by clicking on interactive elements to enter information. You also collect and use inventory items, but you don’t have to actively manage them. They appear on the screen when they are useful.

The space you view in Telescape looks like a game you could play in person, but the online puzzles seemed to be altered or completely different from any possible real-life version.

In Warp Core, we are time travelers and need to bring back 4 artifacts. This review covers part 2 out of 4. Each part brings you to a different historical period and part 2 part brought us to medieval times. You can play part 2 without having played part 1.
