Ice Scream 5 Friends: Mike’s Adventures, the latest arcade horror fantasy game in the Ice Scream series made by the Europe-based Keplerian Studio has been released earlier this month. The new game marks the fifth installment in the long-running Ice-Scream series. Ice Scream 5 Friends: Mike’s Adventures revolves around small puzzle elements that can be solved using the hints available in the surrounding environment. If you are new to this game, we have compiled a guide of essential beginners tips that will come in handy as you progress through Ice Scream 5 Friends: Mike’s Adventures.
The game starts from where it finished in its previous title Ice Scream 4. In the last chapter, Mike freed his friends from their cages and saved them from ending up in the extraction room. But they couldn’t get very far as a twist came in the very last second. Rod showed up and Mike’s friends need to go back hiding in different parts of the huge ice cream factory again. Gamers need to get them all together and defeat Rod once and for all. Players have to explore the new parts of the factory in this chapter, face the Mini-Rods, the ice-cream man and reunite Mike and J.
However, the fifth title did not show other friends of Mike and J as the game ends after reuniting Mike and J only. They will continue to solve the mystery of the ice cream factory in the next installment of the series.
New features in Ice Scream 5 Friends: Mike’s Adventures
Players will again jump into the mission to save their friends as well as to defeat Rod. For the first time in this series, the game lets players switch characters between Mike and J. This helps players to play in different areas, depending on the character. There is a mini version of the main villain Rod introduced named Mini Rod. This new enemy guards the factory to stop players from escaping the factory. He will alert Rod if players get closer to him. So, players need to dodge and distract him by using various in-game items and skills as well.
The game is all about solving puzzles to reunite friends. New mini-games are added and are going to be the most exciting puzzle in the game. Some cut scenes are disclosing the history of Rod and Joseph Sullivan. Besides, if players get stuck in any of the puzzles, they can use a hint window at their disposal that’s full of options to help them solve the puzzles based on their playstyle.
