MedMyst Mission 3: Nemesis at Neuropolis

Calling all science sleuths! A patient appears to have a disease eradicated years ago—how do you treat it? Scholars must research the illness, the possible causes, and find a cure before the disease spreads and wipes out the entire city. Detectives use games, quizzes, and interactives to save the population in the third mission of a seven-part series.
