Somewhere in Northern Germany is placed Drevis Residence, where small, happy, secluded family lives. Father Alfred is Mad Scientist working in underground laboratory. Pay no heed to screamings and begging for help that sometimes could be heard from lab. You are his 11 year old daughter, Aya Drevis, and you love him very much, so you ignore that. Assistant founded on street, Maria, is very helpful and skilled. And Mom? Mommy (Monika) rests in peace, as she always had weak health.
This happy life comes to end one certain day, or rather night, at anniversary of Mom’s death. Something… happened, and now mansion is infested by zombies, Father and Maria are gone and you are left alone. You must save Father.
This is how Mad Father begins, free mystery/horror/adventure game (now with english translation) in pseudo-topdown view. Being Aya, you explore residence and its dark sercrets that poor girl cannot deny, avert eyes or ignore anymore. On your way you collect gems, have to avoid zombies, meet (and sometimes defeat) strange supernatural beings, solve puzzles and survive curse placed on current and past inhabitants (including Father’s…. guests) of mansion.
Game is not short nor particularly long, perfect for few nights with lamp turned off and speakers up. Riddles aren’t very hard (no illogical idiocy). In fact, some of them are very obvious. You have to go a little further to gather all 21 gems, as many of them require certain tasks to perform or challenging dangerous places. Mad Father have dozen of endings that reveal true nature and goals of all people involved in this nightmare.
Have fun. And remember, beware Dad, when you will finally meet him – as there is very good reason for title of this game. I mean, better than you already know or think…
