This Collector's Edition has 9 Achievements to earn, 14 VG Team pictures, 11 Music Soundtracks, 6 Wallpapers, 12 Concept Art pictures, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy! Many of the scenes have puzzles incorporated as well as some interactivity when it comes to finding many of the items. If you are new to HOPA games and not sure about puzzles, then there is a skip button available. I actually don't mind easy puzzles, as long as they are fun.
Sable Maze: Nightmare Shadows Collector's Edition has a terrific gameplay and an excellent storyline. The hidden object scenes and the puzzles are also quite standard. The Mini Games are very doable, most are of good length and entertaining. The graphics are beautifully hand drawn which the production team has become famous for in all of their games.
All in all I highly recommend this game. You truly do go on a nice little adventure. This Collector's Edition has 10 Wallpapers, 10 Concept Art pictures, 9 Avatars, 6 Screensavers, 16 replayable Mini Games, 4 Music Soundtracks, 22 replayable Hidden Object Scenes, a built in Strategy Guide, a Bonus Chapter. 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. I'm really liking what I'm seeing from this new game.
Mini Games: A nice variety here too. The one challenging one to me was driving the airship. Game development team did a brilliant job getting the player to feel involved with the story and connected to the protagonist. 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. Some of the cutscenes were clear and the colors crisp.
Graphics: They are absolutely gorgeous. The animals are totally adorable. And I just like looking at the scenery. Music is soothing until something is either happening or about to happen, then it cuts loose. 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.
Most of the time, the game is pretty predictable. The Strategy Guide, of course, tells you where they are. It is certainly on my buy list. 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.
Sable Maze: Nightmare Shadows Collector's Edition - 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.
