Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death

Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death 2.0

Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death is an exciting puzzle game for Mac.

Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death is a puzzle game that tells the story of a young lady returning to New Orleans to visit her father. She arrives in New Orleans just in time for Mardi Gras and notices something strange at her father's bar: all customers, including her father, are in a state of trance.

Your goal is to find out who is behind this nonsense by solving various puzzles and collecting clues. The app provides you with various types of challenges (shell games - indicate the location of an item by choosing one of three cups, hidden object levels, etc.), many useful hints, and an interactive tutorial at the beginning of the game.

What's more, all important notes are stored within a journal which you can access at any time. This logbook comes in handy whenever you need to remember certain info collected from a previous scene.

Personally, I really liked playing this game as it was able to bring a very interesting storyline and many plot twists. Plus, it let me choose between various difficulty levels and allowed me to create as many player profiles as I needed.

Hence, it's worth buying Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death if you're into jazz music and solving challenging puzzles.
