    Short But Oh So Sweet

    This game comes up with few surprises. It is formulaic, using the familiar 3-4 environments where we solve one aspect of the problem, held together by a basic structure. This is also clearly a low budget game; there’s very been spent on the extras, there are no voiceovers whatsoever, and a few simplistic cutscenes.

     But this game is a must have for anyone who prefers more HO than PA. There are heaps of beautifully drawn HOs, clear, not at all cluttered and a pleasure to play. There are only a handful of puzzles, and those easy.

    Oh, and there are collectible ‘story page pieces’, which go together to make jigsaw puzzles that reveal story. Lots of (skippable) story available.

    Arcelia Island may offer little that is new – but its visual appeal, ease of play and soothing environment make it worth the price, for primarily HO fans and for new players

    I recommend this game!
