    Never be a prisoner of your past.
    It was just a lesson, not a life sentence.

    I just finished this and am ready to start the Bonus game. I enjoyed this very much. As a CE, it does have the usual SG but the Hint will also work and there is a map that includes a Gold button where there is something to do. Click on the Button and you will immediately be taken to that location so there is no need to remember how you get to some place, just use the Map, the Hint or the SG. There are giant animated statues in this town. Some of them are helpful and others are dangerous. Solve the mystery of how these statues came to life and help a little orphan girl with a secret which will be revealed as you near the end of the game. You will have some smaller statues that will do things for you. I was sometimes unsure what they could do but used a Hint when I got stuck. There is also a side quest to find several of a particular item (I did not find them all).

    The graphics are beautiful and the minis are sometimes unique but not too difficult. I enjoyed it very much.

    Game In Brief
    Sunny Sunny Sunny Sunny Sunny 


    Last count, 262 people had posted their reviews for this game on Big Fish. So there really can’t be anything left to tell you that you haven’t heard before.

    Here are the high points for me about one of my top ten favourites of all time:

    *Exciting and breathtaking videos, full of spectacle, sound and activity.

    *Excellent graphics and sound track. Especially the ‘chimes’ music.

    *Delightful animations of unusual assistants and impressive bad guys.

    *Interesting and different story with hidden complexities.

    *Choose your own ending!

    My only complaints are with a draggy cursor (okay with system one but not as much fun), and an inventory panel that is not lockable.

    Bonus Content Review

    The main game ends satisfactorily. The bonus chapter carries on easily with either ending, and is not at all needed for either. This bonus was disappointing. After such a brilliant game, the chapter has only 1 old location and 4 new ones, 4 new HOPs and 4 new puzzles. It took me only 30 mins to complete, and even allowing that I skipped 2 puzzles, I only did so way after the skip became available. The story was a total nothing.  Achievements did not continue through this chapter.

    I love Elephant’s wallpapers because they are actually designed, not just glorified screen shots. You get the necessary room on either side to have a couple of icons! The concept art is nice too, and you can save it. As well, there are replayable videos and music.

    There are 10 achievements, 5 story related, 5 accomplishments (some of these have levels). There are also collectibles, with their own ‘show case’. These are the 26 miniatures of various characters in this game and from other Elephant games. Excellent fun, each different. (And if you find you’re unable to close a close up, look for one there.)

    Brilliant game, the other bonus content makes up for the offending bonus chapter, I’m thrilled to own this game.

    I Recommend This Game!
