    Somewhat Childish

    BASED ON COMPLETED GAME


    I have now tried 3 times to get into this game and it just doesn’t work. At first, I thought it would be pretty cool. It has COLLECTIBLES & ACHIEVEMENTS. And the GRAPHICS aren’t too too bad – they are bright, and the items are big, so even though the graphics overall are FUZZY, at least on my large monitor, I could overlook that.

    Admittedly, I usually enjoy music in a game, but here the MUSIC is seriously ANNOYING, and I had to turn it down. But that’s not enough to reject a game.

    And I prefer games that are  HOS HEAVY, so the ALMOST TOTAL LACK of PUZZLES was not a deterrent.

    I think I finally put my finger on the problem when I realised  that it read like a children’s book, even though the story is not necessarily a children’s one. It’s not overly ‘cute’ and there are no fairies, big bad wolves or blind mice in it. But I did make it to the end of the game this time, and it was very CLEARLY AIMED AT CHILDREN.

    Also, there are a lot of black bar comments in this one, and they were of the ‘well done you’ve found the treasure!’ and ‘oh! What will she find next?’ kind. And the story instalments are each small and simple. And often, repeated.
    The gameplay would have been okay for a HO game that was light on puzzles, but the adventure component was maddening. There was almost no way to guess which would be the right place to go next.

    And after you have been to a location, got the UNHELPFUL ‘there is nothing to do here’ HINT response, and moved on, the next time you go there, there’s the item you need lying on the ground. On the other hand, the inventory bar would get so filled up sometimes, that that might have been worse. Very annoying.

    A lot of random clicking was the only way to get through the game – and of course there was a penalty for that! (Ok, that’s only in the HOS)

    The thing is, all these things wouldn’t have fazed the average kid at all. So if that was their target audience, they’ve actually done a good job.

    And so it is to them that I say...  

    I recommend this game!
