Paris, July 17, 2014,

"Red Johnson’s Chronicles", the punchy adventure game is back to investigate on iOS tablets. An update will transform it into aUniversal version (iPhone/iPad) in a near future. Android version is currently in development and will be available soon.

After leaving its mark on consoles (PS3 and XBOX 360) and PC, Red Johnson, the smoldering-looking investigator, is determined to bring some justice on iOS and Android too.

Microïds, the publisher specializing in adventure gaming, takes the player in the city streets of corrupt Metropolis. As the private detective Red Johnson, the player will have to help out the police, far too permissive to him, in order to solve the last murder case near the Drownedmen’s Bridge.

The player will have to use his sense of observation and logic to distinguish between the true and the false, by searching every single dark corner of the crime scene, by questioning the witnesses and by getting out of every tricky and sometimes lethal situation he will come across.

During the whole adventure, the player shall collect various objects that he will then have to use wisely in the scenery or when facing the different protagonists of the story in order to progress in his quest for truth.

Many puzzles, including several brand new ones since the PC and console versions, punctuate Red’s progress in his investigation. Recreate an Identikit and repair the camera are some of the original sequences required to progress in the adventure.

The entire interface has been redesigned to adapt to the touch screens and the iOS devices. In this brand new edition, the Red Johnson experience has never been this natural!
" Red Johnson’s Chronicles"  is an adventure game published by Microïds and available since July 17, 2014 on Pad in English, French, Italian, Spanish and German. It will be transformed into Universal version (iPhone/iPad) soon and be released shortly on Android.
