In the educational game, the player receives education from the perspective of the secret
agent. The player is cast as a spy and is directed to a European country to investigate
the case. His job is to catch the robbers who have stolen the treasure. The player catches
the robbers by following their trails and cornering them in the specified European district.
Each case is different from the other, and each case spans only three European countries
of the player’s choice. To solve each case, the player has to collect a puzzle item.
The player receives a puzzle item for every correct answer. Moreover, the player must
accomplish each mission within the specified budget and number of days.
In code: Europe, the player meets numerous informers from various cities who share some
information about the country with him. Successively, they shoot a related multiple-choice
question at the player and he needs to answer it correctly to get the puzzle item or clue.
Once, the player completes the puzzle, he gets tested by his boss. If everything goes well
and the player succeeds in the test, his rank gets raised. Also, the difficulty level of
the game subsequently increases with more challenging missions.
