Tony Tough 2: A Rake’s Progress
Although this game has a “2” in the title, the time frame of the story
actually makes it a prequel to the first game, Tony Tough and the Night of
The year is 1953 and you play the 13-year old Tony Tough in his hometown
Washington, New Mexico were he has to solve his first case. It all begins when
someone breaks into the house of Florence Cook. The burglar didn’t find what
he was looking for and was arrested later, but the old lady couldn’t handle
the stress and died. Later the police set the burglar loose again. Then
Florence’s niece Cornelia (who works as a maid at his parents’ house)
disappears – and with her a few valuable artifacts she just inherited from
Florence. So Tony steps into the scene and finally decides to solve the case
with the help of his dog Pantagruel and his loyal friend Seymour.
As in every point ‘n click adventure, you move Tony through still environments
filled with items and characters you can pick up or interact with. In order to
solve the many riddles on your way to solving the whole case, you need to find
many items and sometimes combine them on your journey. You talk in a multiple-
choice manner with other inhabitants of Washington to get information on what
to do next.
The game also doesn’t really take you by the hand. The riddles themselves
aren’t always straight forward and need some serious thinking. Once you’ve
solved the first few riddles, you’re free to roam the town, talk to the
various characters and complete tasks along the way which don’t seem to help
you on your case at first. But as you play on, the pieces of the puzzle begin
to fall into place until you’ve solved Tony Tough’s very first case.
The story of Tony Tough 2 follows a day in the life of Tony Tough as he investigates alien landings and ancient Indian cultures in his hometown of Washington, New Mexico during the early 1950s.
