Grim Facade:The Artist and the Pretender
I liked the game play; it was lengthy and challenging in parts. The map was somewhat misleading, in that it didn't necessarily tell you which areas needed immediate action, and the hint took you in a sometimes never-ending loop. But the main reason I didn't give this a 5 was because of the ungrammatical, often puzzling language in the instructions. If you're going to use English in the game, have a native speaker review it before you publish.
Another great game
I call the Producer the "Big Bunny", and nearly every game they produce is polished and well made. Sure, no game is perfect, but I had no glitches on my iPad Air, with the most recent iOS downloaded. Good graphics, a more than usual plot, with a little history thrown in. Didn't have to worry about mice, the hint button and map could both be used to solve your troubles. I never had to use the "walk through", although I do not like the "New" Big Fish's policy of having this "off Game", (and I very much dislike the "New" Big Fish policy of forcing a purchase before you get to try it first!!). I don't know what happened when Big Fish was bought out, but I miss the "old" Big Fish! I have always relied on the reviews, but now I Never buy a game any more unless the DT rate it highly. Nevertheless, this game was very good in all aspects, and I highly recommend it. The HO's are mixed, including shadows, words, and place the objects, so you never get bored. I liked that. I agree with another reviewer in another game, I wish Big Fish would let us know Up-Front, who the game producer really is (and I done mean BF). Other new producers deserve a chance, but the older tried-and-true companies have done a good job of keeping their games clean and new, and now that many of the new BF games have no free trial, it means you have to "Buy-and-hope". Well, enjoy, this is a very good game.
Grim Facade - Artist and Pretender - artfully done!
ERS has once again raised the bar. This delightful little masterpiece focuses on Leonardo Da Vinci. A pretender to the throne has taken over Venice and is using Leonardo's own inventions against him to destroy him and everything related to science and art! Discover Da Vinci masterpieces and inventions all through the game as well as facts and stories about the great man. Delightful blend of game, art and history! Labeled inventory, interactive transporting map, custom difficulty, great mini games, custom dialogue that changes the game. The only thing I wish it had was the ability to make or change a profile. I don't like being called player lol. Other than that one minor quirk - fabulous game! Buy and enjoy!
