    Jacob sat in the café, waiting for his wife. Helen had a special gift waiting for her for this anniversary: an amulet Jacob had picked up in an antique shop. But Jacob did not know that his gift contained within it a great power, a power meant to awaken an ancient evil. In a flash, frost giants were unleashed upon the world and kidnapped Helen.

    A perpetual frost has descended upon the city and there appears to be few survivors. Help Jacob find Helen and uncover the dark truth behind the amulet and this otherworldly frost that threatens humanity.

    To set his beloved free and save the planet from the impending disaster, Jacob must overcome his fear and face the cold head on. Help the hero battle this malicious evil by solving puzzles, rescuing survivors, and finding useful items. Can you help thwart the sinister plans of the frost giants?

    Perfect Punchcard Fodder***

    BASED ON DEMO

    IN BRIEF


    This is a nice little no-bells-and-whistles game. There is a story that you can follow, and nice graphics to look at, and gameplay that is straight forward, but with some nice challenges in the HOP scenes. It is also quite a bit creepy.

    The story behind the game is, put simply, a powerful medallion, in the wrong hands, must save the missus and the world. To do this, you must find 17 brave souls from the frozen dead (I’m not sure yet if they’re dead or just frozen).

    The game play is predominately HOPs with a few puzzles, none of them hard or original. The HOPs are nice. All are word lists, visited twice, but they involve a fair bit of interaction and are a bit trickier than the average. You have a notebook which helps to clarify exactly why you’re doing stuff – not always immediately obvious. And a hint that indicates directions and active tasks. There are 2 difficulty levels. I played easy, and found it a little over-helpful. Still needed it for the HOPs though!

    Negative factors are only two for me: no inventory lock, and repetitious music. There really was only a few bars! Surely there must be some freely available music on the net, stuff that has outlived its copy rights?

    Anyway, with music off, this is a perfect sort of game for punchcard credits – there will be someday soon, when it exactly matches your mood, but you wouldn’t want to have spent a lot of money getting it!  Wink

    I recommend this game!

    Or machaca. Just don't call her machaca.

    Thanks for the review. I was kind of on the fence about it since I can't access the forum to read all those brilliant reviews to base my decision on. But you've saved the day, my dear Just.

    That's a darn good game.  It's got some problems but over all it's very well done and attractively made.
