Categories: Adventure, Flash, Free, Games, Online, Point'n'click, Walkthrough   17 comments - April 28, 2012

After almost three years of wait, Covert Front Episode 4: the Spark of Life is live!

Covert Front is a Point’n’Click “spy” series created by Mateusz Skutnik that takes place “in 1904, but in a different reality-line, where the First World War has already begun due to earlier technical revolution that took place in the mid 19th century.

In Covert Front, you are an agent code-named Kara and your mission is to investigate the disappearance of General Karl von Toten.”

Sadly, the series ends with this last installment!

Have fun!

Covert FrontCovert Front 2Covert Front Episode 2: Station on the Horizon is live!

Covert Front is a Point’n’Click “spy” series created by Mateusz Skutnik that takes place “in 1904, but in a different reality-line, where the First World War has already begun due to earlier technical revolution that took place in the mid 19th century.

In Covert Front, you are an agent code-named Kara and your mission is to investigate the disappearance of General Karl von Toten.

The game is divided into four equal parts, all being chapters of the same story.”

In this second episode, “Kara is up to her neck in hot water. Having infiltrated Karl von Toten’s mansion and made off with key intelligence, she must now escape with her life and let her superiors know of her shocking finds.”

No need to say that this second chapter is again a great realization that will delight all Covert Front fans!

Have fun!

Covert Front – Episode 1

Categories: Flash, Free, Games, Online, Point'n'click, Video walkthrough, Walkthrough   44 comments - July 18, 2007

Covert FrontCovert Front - Episode 1Here is the alert I just found in my email box today, from Mateusz Skutnik, the creator of the Submachine series:

“In Covert Front you are a top secret agent code-named Kara in an alternate history version of World War I. Assigned to infiltrate the mansion of a notorious scientist, Karl von Toten, you must discover the incredible secrets that lie within and escape with your life.

But first, you must figure out how to get through the front door! Covert Front is a point-and-click adventure game that will transport you to the center of an espionage-filled world.”

All Quiet on the Covert Front is a short and not really difficult game, but the story line and the unique atmosphere bring it to a new level. Covert Front might become a very successful series if the next episodes are as good as this one!

Have fun!

In this third episode, “our top secret agent Kara finds herself in a train station in Zurich with new orders – to apprehend the mysterious scientist Karl von Toten. But who is that watching her from across the station? Kara will have to use all of her cunning to bring in the rogue scientist and avoid meeting a grim end herself.”

I’m sure Cover Front fans won’t miss this one!

Iron Works

Categories: Arcade, Flash, Free, Games, Online   1 comment - March 17, 2008

Iron WorksIron WorksIron Works is a nice Bust-A-Move clone developed by Mateusz Skutnik, the creator of Submachine and Covert Front series.

The object of the game is to clear each level by using the iron ball launcher. Shoot the colored balls to link 3 or more of the same color and make them disappear from the board.

Iron Works is a very fun game to play, even if it is not as good as Frozen Bubble.

That being said, if you are a fan of this type of game, Iron Works is definitely worth a try!

Have fun!

Daymare Town

Categories: Adventure, Flash, Free, Games, Online, Point'n'click, Walkthrough   52 comments - July 25, 2007

Daymare TownDaymare TownJust a week after the release of Covert Front, Mateusz Skutnik made a new announcement today in his newsletter:

“it’s been a week since release of Covert Front. It’s time to spice things up. You’ve played Submachine, You’ve played Covert Front, now it’s time for something completely new and unforeseen: Daymare Town.

Sketchy outline-only drawings give stranger look to the gameplay and create a bit of minimal atmosphere. Add creepy sounds and twisted story and you get the picture.

DMT is the hardest puzzle game I made so far. It’s really nasty, so be warned. It’s for advanced Point’n’Click gamers. There is no cliffhanger at the end, but just try to get to that end.”

You’ve been forewarned (Oh, and the TAB key is your friend in this one…).

Have fun!
