Running with the concept of the “found phone” puzzle sub-genre, Jessika changes some of the more typical details and adds some decently-acted media to the mix, but still adheres to the same general idea. The general goal in these games is for you to rummage through a person’s data, texts, emails, and even media in order to advance your way through different layers of security and additional info that advances the story. Where the game struggles a bit is with the controls in the interface, which do function reasonably well but I wouldn’t consider ideal in all cases either. As is typical with this type of game there will inevitably be lulls where you’re unable to find the next tidbit you need to keep things advancing, often requiring backtracking to comb through things in the hopes you’ll find whatever it was you missed to keep you going. It has its moments, but this isn’t a game style likely for everyone.
