Most of the HOP's offer a small interactive puzzle to solve. One of the reason's I liked this game better than the last, is that there are a ton of Mini Games, most of which are super easy. For the experienced player, this game doesn't hold much of a challenge. Some of the cutscenes were clear and the colors crisp.
One of the best features of Dark Romance: Winter Lily is the superb drawing of characters and scenery. Graphics are really nice in this game, though, just like the animations. The Collector's Edition is also quite rewarding, it includes a strategy guide, wallpapers, concept art, a screensaver, soundtracks, achievements, collectibles, morphing objects, and a secret room. The HOPS are excellent and varied with some being different than those normally seen.
The graphics are beautifully hand drawn which the production team has become famous for in all of their games. Music: Fits the game just right. This time it doesn't get outright booming. I just don't get what's up with the cartoonish graphics. Music wise, carries the mood of the game very well.
It seems like all of the serial games are basically the same. The storyline does a nice job also. I am playing these games to relax and for their entertainment value so I don't want to be stressed to much with puzzles I can't solve. As always, I review mostly on the game play and leave the story to others to review.
The graphics are sharp, the cutscenes are top-notch, and the fancy visual effects are sophisticated. The game flowed quite well and is very easy to follow. It is certainly on my buy list. Also, developers are now offering a custom mode of gameplay and this one will allow you to set your hint and skip times to your preference.
In terms of entertainment and relaxation, this game delivers just what you need! I've been a fan of the Dark Romance: Winter Lily series and really enjoyed the games in the series. As always, try the demo first. Most of the time, the game is pretty predictable.
But if you want an easy, funny game then this game is perfect for you.
