Solid point and click adventure
Just like the other Syntaxity games, this one provides a few hours of hunting, searching, and puzzle solving. Nothing annoyingly tricky here puzzle-wise, but enough to scratch that puzzle solving itch. I like that the Syntaxity games make an effort to have the game tell a story, even if they are a tad silly. I also really appreciate that the games don’t revolve around darkness, psychological scariness, blood, and gloom as seems to be the trend with some in this genre. This is just me, but I prefer to solve puzzles without the lurking threat of zombies, mutants, monsters, and evil cabals (which is why I’m such a fan of the House of DaVinci games).
Longer and more complex than the original Blackthorn Castle (which I also liked), if you enjoyed others in this series, you’ll get your money’s worth on this one. The Enchanted Worlds and Rescue the Enchanter are my other faves from Syntaxity.
As with all of their games, this one does offer hints, but you shouldn’t need them, if you’re patient. This game, like all the others, also offers an ability to zip around the expansive map (over 100 different locations in this one), if you want to spend an extra $.99 for that feature (I don’t particularly mind tromping back and forth, since a second, third, or fourth look at a location often reveals something I missed the first time).
Good addition to the lineup.
Really, really enjoyed it!
I loved getting immersed into the scenes, stretching my thinking, and the overall game play. I only found one puzzle that the logic still escapes me, but the rest just required sometimes thinking beyond the obvious. Although I didn’t use any hints, I did think it was a little cheap to charge for them, especially when purchasing the game. Looking forward to the next adventure!
Enjoy these...HOWEVER...BUYER BEWARE!
I like to play these but the puzzles are the same from one game to the next. Once you’ve played one, you’ve played them all.
I wish that the company wasn’t so greedy to stick it to the loyal buyers who have bought their games for many years, and helped them stay in business.
After paying the $4 for the game, you must then pay an additional $1 for an extra feature (which should be included as part of the game)....once you move, it comes to a scene and notifies you that you’ve unlocked a scene used for “Fast Travel”....but then to get to use “Fast Travel” (allowing you to jump to sections of the paths, where you can skip having to constantly be tapping the same screens to go back & forth after you’ve found an item you need -but need it on the far opposite side of the landscape map),you’ve got to pay up the extra $1.....! C’mon guys! So ridiculous!
I understand charging a $1 for unlocking “Hints”....many companies do that. But the feature of Fast Travel -if you’re going to put it up as a feature, it SHOULD NOT be an additional cost. If you want to just flat out charge $5 for you game, then do that.
