Note: The third installment in the mini adventure series has just been announced. Check the news feed for details.

Anaksha finally arrives to pick up her new cellphone but soon finds herself tangled up with something very dark and sinister stirring in Santa Lina.

This little graphic adventure game is actually the second major release in the Anaksha series and contains an achievements system as well as a treasure hunt for hidden virgo symbols (there are 60 of them hidden all over the map). There's also 15 NG medals to collect.

Fans of the old Sierra Online games will appreciate the visual feel of the updated engine which was inspired by Sierra's AGI.

There are over 850 possible solutions for this game. Certain puzzles and events change slightly each time you play.

Average play time is roughly over 2 hours (using a solution).
I haven't written a walkthrough yet for this game but if you want to write one then knock yourself out.

If you're stuck try the Anaksha forums (http://www.anaksha.com/f orum/). There's already lots of hints and tips on there.

PS: There seems to be an issue with unlocking the NG medals. I've heard reports of it happening in other games so I can only assume it's an issue with Newgrounds and not the game itself.

the amount of thought put into this game is immense; the soundtracks are great and the spriteworks on the background is wonderful, almost every tile has a comment and use. The atmosphere is simply amazing and it gives a very classic sierra vibe. The beginning is wonderful and was a great opener for a modern detective fiction. I thought I'll be in for some touching story telling with great characters.

And then fifty fetch quests hit me in the face.

I wish the gameplay were a little engaging, I'm not a huge fan of designer logic fetch quests. Hell, I had to read a guide to figure out that I can only use a very specific corner of a bar window to blunt a nail instead of the random street dumpster or wall.

You mentioned that there are hundreds of solution and the path is not always linear, but I don't think I ever got to it. I'm still going to vote high for the amount of polish and atmosphere put into this game. I'm a little concerned that you fell in love with your game before the players had a chance to, you might want to... casual-ize it a bit on future releases.

i really like it. but i'm stuck on the part with the toliet and the women needs her chain back and i need to get to room 8 and i got the hand santizer and the other various items like can liner but still can't figure out why she won't put her hands in the potty or why i can't combine those items to create a device to reach into the potty and grab the object. a walkthrough or advice would be helpful right now.

very nice game, good graphisms, sound and story, balanced challenge, excellent work on dialogues and characters, the whole is quite creative. On the downside (some spoilers ahead), I think it could be improved on the coherence level. Some item exchanges are a bit far-fetched (a chili candy for a telescope ?) but that's ok, some situations are incoherent, like why can't I use my new kickass phone and have to use the phone at the X movie theater when calling for flowers. If I can have a temporary pass to the club by the internet, why can't I use my super cell phone to go online ? A girl also mentions looking for a dating site, I expected to use the phone to check that. Lol, I'm a bit focusing on the phone, but it's 25,000$ damn ! and the guy tells you all the cool functions, I expected to use them :p and I was then disappointed to use it only once for unlocking a door if I remember well. Anyway, the whole game is pretty cool and I enjoyed playing it ! keep going :)


ArifRocks responds:

Remember what Cody said. The phone is brand new and will take a while picking up a live satellite signal for the first time. So until it does, it's pretty much useless as a communications device. If you liked the phone, go play Anaksha Dark Angel. You get to see it close up and even use some of it's functions.

Really fun and addicting. The music makes it even better.
