A non-sequel to the original Safecracker (though somewhat similar in style), this puzzlefest has a pretty simple premise: you’ve been hired by a wealthy family to break through all of the safes in the eccentric patriarch’s mansion and get to his last will and testament.

 

Play simply involves moving through the mansion and deciphering some fascinating locking mechanisms.  Other than an incredibly annoying slider puzzle, the safes are generally unique and entertaining to crack.  The final safe is an original, fun nut to crack.

There is some background information to learn as you explore; the billionaire has left notes and letters scattered about that give some faint insight into the personalities of the potential heirs.  Other than that, this is a pretty basic game that shouldn’t take the average puzzle enthusiast more than an afternoon or two to complete.  Those looking for more adventure should stay away, but those who just want to get down to the puzzles will probably enjoy Safecracker.
