In my opinion, seek and enjoy! Many of the scenes have puzzles incorporated as well as some interactivity when it comes to finding many of the items. This game has it all from crisp jewel-toned graphics that are absolutely gorgeous, to interesting interactive HOPS and lots of excellent puzzles. I hope all fellow gamers have a good and very healthy 2017.
I've been playing this game for 2 hours and I still quite a ways to go. The graphics are beautiful and, yes, icy but perfect for a cold and rainy day here in my town. If you prefer the CE version of games the Maze: Nightmare Realm has collectibles, artifacts and morphing objects to be found. It is a perfect game for a lazy day.
Each game in this series has a little different story line and they have all been interesting. Many of the scenes offer Panoramic views, where you can scroll further to the left or right in an attempt to make the player feel like they are actually there. The Mini Games are numerous and entertaining, and most of the puzzles give you the option to play the game in either an Easy of Hard mode which is a feature I really like. Music wise, carries the mood of the game very well.
Those looking for an intense challenge won't get it from the game either. The Hidden Object Scenes are well done, again the devs have done a nice job of keeping the items true to the period of time. The production team did a great job with the sights and sounds. The Mini Games are very doable, most are of good length and entertaining.
I just don't get what's up with the cartoonish graphics. Map: The map tells where the player is and has the special mark when you have something to do there. As always, I review mostly on the game play and leave the story to others to review. Music is soothing until something is either happening or about to happen, then it cuts loose.
Graphics are really nice in this game, though, just like the animations. Music: Fits the game just right. This time it doesn't get outright booming. There is really nothing new, It is certainly on my buy list.
I love puzzles in HOPA games and even though some puzzles are familiar there are still some surprises in difficulty.
