It is another Grumpy Cat Monday (following Grumpy Red Queen Saturday) and on the leftover menu we have a delightful adventure SE game. I found this old school game delightful. This is definitely more of an adventure game than a HOP game. It has very realistic graphics with written dialogue as well as voiceovers. This well worth a coupon and a must have for me. Here is a breakdown of the game: LEVELS: 3 – Casual (with glints and sparkles) , Challenging (no glints and sparkles), Extreme (no hints). MAP: There is a map which is decent for an SE game. Yeah! INVENTORY: You collect most of the inventory by searching for it within the scenes of the game. It is not interactive but most of the SE’s do not provide interactive inventory items. PUZZLES: The puzzles are fairly easy and a variation of those we have had in the past – the ones I encountered were electrical in nature. HOP SCENES: Standard theme- based junk piles. Slightly interactive without the variation of CE games. You are penalized with a smoky screen if you click too many times. EXTRA GOODIES – AWARDS – 18. You must find 30 beetles, and rare plants. You also get awards for solving HOP scenes without help, solving mini puzzles without hints etc. BONES – Used in the game when needed. Light- Ground-Air-Water-Life to maneuver you in the gamne. They are “helpers” in a sense, the difference being they are not “thrown in” to be cute and adorable. They are a reasonable part of and are an intrinsic part of the game . GRAPHICS: Well done – Very realistic character portrayals. More realistic than most of the SE games. They are sharp and clear on my computerSUNNYGLOW - BIGFISHGAMES KEY CONTRIBUTOR
I wasn’t expecting much from this game, but I found it to be a really fun game. The story line is a usual one, Father disappears, Daughter goes looking & finds Father. That’s nothing new, but this story took quite a turn that I wasn’t expecting. There are 3 levels of challenge. I liked the fact that you can make the re-charge time the length you want it to be. I hate having to wait 10 minutes for it. The level of challenge is very good. There is an interactive map that tells you where you are, & what tasks you have to do in the current areas. That really helped, because there is a lot of jumping back and forth between scenes. There are also a collectibles in this SE (scarabs#. When you see the collectible, click on it first thing, you will not have a chance to go back & pick it up; so be on the lookout for them. I never found this game to be tedious or boring. I wanted to keep playing to see what was next! Now here’s my one gripe: The heroine in out story #the daughter) comes to this cursed island in a suit & heels! What?! That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen in one of these games – especially since she goes into a river, has to navigate through halls, weird doors, sand & lava. Wow… What were they thinking? So if that’s my only gripe about this game, I’d say that this stands up as a really good & fun game. So ignore the fact that you’re all dressed up, & enjoy this one.RADARSWEET - BIGFISHGAMES KEY CONTRIBUTOR
Such a fun little game!! It’s just challenging enough to test you, without being a pain. Reminds me of a mini-Myst, Riven or Siberia.PASHTA - GAMEHOUSE PLAYER
