    I loved “Calavera: Day Of The Dead”, did you? If the answer is yes, you are sure to like this one. It has that same offbeat style, and Central American locales and theme, done as only ERS can do. If, however, you are a great fan of the first “Twilight Phenomena”, you may not be so excited about finding HO scenes in this one. But they’re colourful and varied, with the option to play an interesting and challenging mini-game instead, and well-integrated into the game’s world.

    The other puzzles are also varied and enjoyable, and I didn’t find any of them either too difficult or too easy, there is a nice mix. The adventure gameplay can be a bit odd at times, but there is a directional hint, and an interactive jump map, plus the journal. We also have an assistant (yes, he’s cute, and funny, and in the CE version, you can dress him up in costumes). He is not helpful, though, unless you feed him!

    The game also has many options for you to customise the difficulty level regarding sparkles, black bar help, hint and skip.

    The game starts with a character breathlessly telling us of the trouble she has found herself in – which turns out to be becoming an willing part of an experiment using the DNA of animals in humans. For once, we arrive at the scene without having crash landed something, with a simple page of paper outside the front of the house our friend is, presumably, in. Our arrival is a bit daunting anyway though, as the occupant of the house shoots a tranquiliser dart at us!

    I am still of two minds about whether the CE or SE is the better game. I guess in the end it comes down to how much you enjoy the bells and whistles of achievements and collectibles and dressing up the raccoon.

    I recommend this game!
