I've been a fan of the Scarlett Mysteries: Cursed Child series and really enjoyed the games in the series. First of all, the landscapes and sceneries in this installment is mesmerizing; filled with exotic locations and interestingly-designed themes. All in all I highly recommend this game. You truly do go on a nice little adventure. Scarlett Mysteries: Cursed Child does not disappoint when it comes to length either. Playing on the easiest mode, we spent over six hours on the main game.
Not only are there a lot of puzzles but some are different and some are challenging. If you are new to HOPA games and not sure about puzzles, then there is a skip button available. I always love the Egyptian themed graphics, and the storyline that goes with it. I love puzzles in HOPA games and even though some puzzles are familiar there are still some surprises in difficulty.
Voices are age and character appropriate, with emotion for a change. The graphics are beautifully hand drawn which the production team has become famous for in all of their games. Most of the HOP's offer a small interactive puzzle to solve. Game development team did a brilliant job getting the player to feel involved with the story and connected to the protagonist.
It's just nice to have a fun and relaxing game to play. This is one of them. Most of the time, the game is pretty predictable. There is usually a puzzle, sometimes two, to solve. The Mini Games are in abundance. As always, try if out for yourself and see what you think.
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. The graphics are beautiful and, yes, icy but perfect for a cold and rainy day here in my town. There was never a moment of boredom playing the game. This Collector's Edition has 15 Morphing Objects within the HOP's, 9 Concept Art pictures, p Dev pictures, 9 Wallpapers, 11 Music Soundtracks, 14 Videos, a Souvenir Room, 18 Achievements to earn, 15 replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 20 replayable Mini Games, Collectible Characters, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Adventure, enjoy!
The CE version of the game is rather light on extra content although there are morphing objects and some fairly "in your face" collectibles to find. The storyline does a nice job also. Music is soothing until something is either happening or about to happen, then it cuts loose. Graphics: They are absolutely gorgeous. The animals are totally adorable. And I just like looking at the scenery.
Many of the scenes have puzzles incorporated as well as some interactivity when it comes to finding many of the items.
