    BASED ON COMPLETED GAME

    Somewhat disappointed in this game, it was not at all as interesting as it originally seemed. It didn’t follow through on a dramatic and vivid opening with same calibre game play. Visually, it was unattractive, grainy and dull, although the enigmatic talking blackbird was very well done, I thought.

    The story was nothing new – save significant other, in this case favourite prof, and in the process save the inhabitants of an afflicted island to lift the curse put on it by an evil mage. It’s an ever popular story, and I’m happy to play any of its variants. But this one didn’t seem  to flow. There was rarely any clear way forward, so finding the next task became tiresome.

    One thing I did like was the way the predictions of the future were presented in parchment scrolls showing sketches of it. But they only gave a very broad strokes.

    Another good thing were some of the puzzles. Very absorbing and clever. Take the time to work out the clock one, for example, very satisfying to see the results of your efforts.

    One final potential point in favour of this game for others (alas not for me) who are interested in encoding and deciphering puzzles. There were several of these, and no amount of effort made it possible for me to understand how they aligned the cipher rings or how the alleged clues helped. *Sigh* Have fun those of you who can.

    With all these pluses and minuses it’s hard to decide whether to recommend it or not. This really is a try before you buy game, but ultimately...

    I don't recommend this game!
