Darkness and Flame: Missing Memories has a terrific gameplay and an excellent storyline. I love puzzles in HOPA games and even though some puzzles are familiar there are still some surprises in difficulty. Music is soothing until something is either happening or about to happen, then it cuts loose. Darkness and Flame: Missing Memories is a must-have game for me. Not only is the game full of things to do, it is also beautiful and just what I have been looking for after all the dreary, colorless games that wrapped up in the past 3 months.
The remaining extras are always found in CEs such as a bonus game, strategy guide, etc. The remaining extras are the standard fluff but for new gamers the in-game strategy guide is always a benefit. The Hidden Object Scenes are varied, with finding Keywords in a Sentence etc. The graphics are beautiful and, yes, icy but perfect for a cold and rainy day here in my town.
One of the best features of Darkness and Flame: Missing Memories is the superb drawing of characters and scenery. The heart-pounding music and the creepy ambient sounds also help increase the suspense of the game. The Mini Games are very doable, most are of good length and entertaining. The production team did a great job with the sights and sounds.
This game has fairly nice graphics, but could be a bit clearer. All in all I highly recommend this game. You truly do go on a nice little adventure. Darkness and Flame: Missing Memories does not disappoint when it comes to length either. Playing on the easiest mode, we spent over six hours on the main game. It's just nice to have a fun and relaxing game to play. This is one of them.
As always, try the demo first. Oh, and if you just don't like HOPS, you can always switch to a mini game to help complete the scenes. The HOPS are absolutely a delight with items that are well depicted. There is usually a puzzle, sometimes two, to solve. The Mini Games are in abundance.
This is the newest game in the Darkness and Flame series. Darkness and Flame: Missing Memories - the Collector's Edition - comes with all the goodies one expects from one. We get easy to find Collectibles, wallpapers, art images and a bonus chapter. I hope all fellow gamers have a good and very healthy 2017. I really got into the story when the demo ended.
Game development team did a brilliant job getting the player to feel involved with the story and connected to the protagonist.
