The Adventures of Tintin was a very famous comic series launched in 1960s. On the basis of the comic series, Steven Spielberg directed the big budget animated film, also one of the top charted, “The Adventures of Tintin: Secrets of Unicorn” in 2011. Upon the release of the film on October 23, 2011, Ubisoft developed a game for PC,Sony PS3, Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox 360.The game is really fantastic with simple control system and multiple gameplay styles. The graphic level of the game is very eye-soothing and refreshing. Players can experience the exact flavor of Tintin adventure series – as in the books and in the movie. The perfect Blend of third person and puzzle solving gameplay reminds the history of computer games.

Secrets of the Unicorn


The game’s story-line is based on the movie plot. Tintin sets out for a quest along with his loyal dog Snowy to know the secret of legendary triple mast, double-decked, with 50 cannons, ship “Unicorn” and the fate of its captain Francis de Haddock. On his journey, he meets Captain Haddock, descendent of Francis De Haddock and captain of the ship Karaboudjan. The game story take us in different places in Brussels, France, and North Africa.

Players would, by default, given the option to play the lead character Tintin. However, players can also play the game as Francis in flashback mode of the story.



  • The game represents the exact story line of the film.
  • Solo game mode with Tintin and Snowy and Co-Op mode with both Tintin and Haddock is available.
  • In solo game Captain Haddock is unlockable in the final battle.
  • The dog, Snowy, has the ability to follow scents, bark, dig, and jump in the game.
  • High quality game environment and lighting makes playing the game a pleasure.
  • An immense environmental detail consists of underwater caves, desert canyons, cliffs, rumbling tempests etc.
  • The character details are fantastic just like the movie.


  • The game is a quite a platformer with multiple game-plays consisting of huge action and puzzle solving.
  • The controls of the game are very easy. Players can do different things by pressing a single button.
  • Third person over the shoulder game-play is included in certain missions.
  • Missions of diving and shooting side-cars and airplanes are also available.

Playable Characters

  • Tintin
  • Snowy
  • Captain Haddock
  • Sir Francis Haddock


  • Allan
  • Red Reckham


  • The game’s puzzle solving and discovering gameplay style makes me remember the early developments of Prince of Persia 1 and 2.
  • The game offers huge pick-ups .
  • The game story also took me to flash back scenes of Unicorn where the gamer had to take control of Francis de Haddock.
  • The swordplay style of Francis is very thrilling. We can block attacks by pressing up, down, left and right arrows and attack by the movement of mouse.
  • The enemies can be defeated by hand to hand combat and also by using environmental objects.
  • The shooting down sequences while driving an airplane is a good content in the game.

However, there are some elements which could have made the game more attractive, if included.

  • In the movie, the main antagonist is Shakarinedescendent of Red Reckham who seeks out revenge from Capt. Haddock for his ancestor’s defeat. But in the game, the main antagonist is Allan. I think, introduction of Shakarine would have given the game a new dimension and story line would have more depth.
  • The ending of the solo game mode is very simple. There may be some elements that could give hint for bigger adventures in future just like the movie.
  • Capt. Haddock should have been a playable character in solo game mode, instead of being unlocked in final mission with his unique ability to navigate direction, break objects in bare hand etc.
  • Snowy should have possessed the ability to bite alongside barking and ability to participate in active combat with Tintin in the game.
  • The complete development of the game in third person over the shoulder mode would have made the game more attractive.
  • Ubisoft should consider developing sequels of The Adventures of Tintin with a new game-play, introduction of new characters like Johnson and Ronson brothers, Proffessor Calculus etc. and off course with original storyline or from the story of its comic origin.
