    A 2nd Look Confirms It, Solid SE

    I was a little outvoted on my review of the CE of this game. The consensus seems to be that it is lovely, well drawn, good story. Definitely CE material. I am still not convinced. I think it is GOOD as a SE, and falls short of the mark as a CE.

    I like the STORY, like everyone else, and the best thing about this game is the way that it is TOLD. A romantic tragedy, with overtones of MYSTERY & INTRIGUE, and we’ve got those ever-favourites, PIRATES. Cartoon-style movies give us back story, and we have a sad ghost who leads us onwards in her quest.

    The GRAPHICS still show up as DARK on my computer, even INSIDE the castle. From the SG, I see that the STYLE (not a favourite of mine) remains the same throughout. Even the lighter HOS are MONOCHROMATIC. So to my mind, I don’t consider this a ‘pretty’ game.

    What makes this game INTERESTING (as an SE) is some NEW IDEAS in the HO SCENES. They are your usual (not very) INTERACTIVE LIST, but in one scene, finding the items on the list entails opening cabinet doors, which in turn opens others, so your items are constantly being REVEALED then HIDDEN. Cool. Later in the game, there is also an HOS where you must find the items in SEQUENTIAL ORDER.

    I found the PUZZLES quite EASY, and the ADVENTURE quite STRAIGHTFORWARD. For help there is an INTERACTIVE JUMP MAP and HELPFUL HINT. It really is not a challenging game – which is not a criticism, I like relaxing games.

    There is another NEW IDEA I like in this game. You must COLLECT COINS in order to open TREASURE CHESTS in which you find ITEMS you need to progress in the game. A little extra fun.

    So. A GOOD GAME, as a SE, without the CE price tag.

    I Recommend This Game!
