Thought not perfect, CITY OF SECRETS is a creative and funny portable adventure game. Players alternate between Moles the talking mole and his canine companion Rex as they accidentally fall through the ground and end up in Mole City, where they become caught up in a resistance movement to free the town from the oppressive rule of its secretive mayor. Characters frequently break the fourth wall and poke fun at the genre itself, which adventure game fans should get a kick out of. Gameplay is mostly puzzle-solving using inventory items along with a few reflex-based mini-games, such as tilting the device to sort scrap into the proper recycling bins. City of Secrets boasts a decent length and great audio and visual production values, but the only snag is the text, which contains enough obvious grammatical and spelling gaffes to be noticeable. Overall, City of Secrets is a great adventure game that could have benefited from more thorough proofreading.
