Mu Complex Episode 2

I helped Lya escape. It wasn’t an easy thing to do. I had to decipher lost codes, find geographic locations of passwords while breaking into other people’s computers and, the hardest of all: use math!

I helped Lya escape. I am not sure how I feel about it.
Mu Complex: Episode Two is a typing puzzle game. Actually, it’s a hacking game with a bit of programming. It is a game which tests your logic, intelligence and adaptability.

Mu Complex: Episode Two is a sequel to Mu Complex: Episode One, made by Studio Cime, continuing where Episode One stopped. It is absolutely necessary to play both games to understand the story and the game mechanics.

In a marvellous story which takes you back to 1960’s top secret complex, you play a hacker who happened to access a terminal inside the complex. From there, you are guided by a female voice narrative inside the complex. By using simple code you are able to manoeuvre around the complex, read people’s mail (it’s a bit rude, but you are a hacker, remember), find out their stories and dig deeper into the secrets of the complex. However, it’s not as easy as you might think. The computer network is huge and most people have security pass codes on their workspaces. You need to find their passwords by solving riddles, deciphering Morse code, coding a small robot to move to a certain location and even triangulate using Google maps. This is just a part of what Mu Complex: Episode Two has to offer.

It tests your patience, intellect and logic providing a story which will leave you thinking at night and a sense of true accomplishment when you finally manage to solve a puzzle which has been on your mind for days. Needles to say, this isn’t a game for cheaters who use walkthroughs. The overwhelming excitement when a difficult riddle is solved, and only by using your brain is an amazing experience. Sometimes it even leads to high fiving yourself for the rest of the day because you feel like the smartest man in the world.

Mu Complex: Episode Two is an intellectual game for those who seek a new type of challenge which seems to be rather scarce in today’s world: using your brain.
