There is really nothing new, The production team did a great job with the sights and sounds. As always, try the demo first. Map: The map tells where the player is and has the special mark when you have something to do there.
Voices are age and character appropriate, with emotion for a change. It seems like all of the serial games are basically the same. Game play was excellent. It's just nice to have a fun and relaxing game to play. This is one of them.
As always, I review mostly on the game play and leave the story to others to review. This game has it all from crisp jewel-toned graphics that are absolutely gorgeous, to interesting interactive HOPS and lots of excellent puzzles. We played Phantasmat: Curse of the Mist on the easiest difficulty mode, rarely skipped any puzzles, and completed the game in around four hours. The graphics weren't all that bad.
As always, try if out for yourself and see what you think. 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. Those looking for an intense challenge won't get it from the game either. In terms of entertainment and relaxation, this game delivers just what you need!
Phantasmat: Curse of the Mist has a terrific gameplay and an excellent storyline. The Hidden Object Scenes are varied, with finding Keywords in a Sentence etc. Read on to find out in my Phantasmat: Curse of the Mist review how I felt playing the game and what's my opinion on it. The graphics are excellent with good voiceovers but it is a bit odd that the lip-syncing seems to be a hit or miss sort of thing.
But if you want an easy, funny game then this game is perfect for you. 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. The Hidden Object Scenes are mostly Interactive List finds, the scenes are beautifully drawn and there are a ton of interactive items.
This is the newest game in the Phantasmat series.
