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

    Totally & Utterly Forgettable

    I have just completed this game and for the life of me I can’t think what appealed to me enough to buy it. I am even having trouble remembering what it’s about right now. Its biggest impact is in the opening moments – loved that. Unfortunately that was the best part of the game.

    The story (I think) was typical  - lame brother gets in over his head with some seriously evil dude trying to rule the world with magic. And of course you’re the only one who can stop him, there’s some magic artefact you have to find, etc. All totally predictable.

    There was one thing that I liked but I don’t want to do a spoiler.

    But, interesting things with mirrors. Oh, and no black side bars – dark red corpuscles instead. Does that rate as an improvement?
    What I can tell you is that there were a fair number of HOs,  and all the puzzles were familiar ones. Except the colourful skulls door lock (free screenshot on this page), which was a lot of fun as well as something new.  There was no map and no colourful extras. Just a straight forward B grade low budget HOPA.

    The voiceovers weren’t particularly well synced with the live actor scenes, but I don’t understand why other reviewers get worked up about that. I just ignore their mouths. The music and ambient sounds didn’t register on me at all. The graphics were much the same mediocre – at no point actually bad – performance.

    I’m straining my brain, but I really can’t imagine who this game might best appeal to . Nothing suggests itself. And even though it is far from the worst game I’ve seen, I wouldn’t even recommend it as a Daily Deal.

    I don't recommend this game!
