Anabel, Answer the Call!

Midnight Calling: Anabel is an interesting game, despite its gloomy title. You are Anabel, the deposed princess of the Castle. Your father was captured by the evil Chamberlain. He also imprisoned the friendly family dragon. Your friend, Calum, assists you; you also find an adorable bat who serves as your familiar, fetching high objects. Each scene contains Morphing Objects and other Collectibles. There are multiple mechanical puzzles, as well as Hidden Objects. Nice, colorful scenery adds a bright touch. The Hint and Skip buttons work well, and there is a Transporting Map. There are customizable difficulty buttons on many of the mini games. If it were a bit longer, I would have awarded five stars! The story line and tasks were easy to determine, so no diary was necessary. I still have not completed the Bonus Game, but I anticipate liking it, too. I intend to play this game a second time, just for fun!

Nice game, not fabulous but no real glitches

Fundamentals are pretty solid -- teleporting map, journal, tasks, voice overs, labeled inventory, logic, cutscenes, etc. are all there and there's even a bat helper in the first game and a bird helper in the bonus. Storyline works. And just doesn't rank 5 stars. Here's why:

No back button, and there are too many times if you want to inspect something in the bottom of the third of the scene, you go back a scene. Too many "same as it ever was" solutions and not much's the oil can for rusty lock, diamond ring for cutting glass, etc.

On the upside, it's a nice storyline and there are quite a lot of variations in the minigames and HOPs.

A very healthy 4 stars, and worth the price...but just.

Hi and thanks to all the reviewers. xo

Loving this Game!

I really like this type of game, and this one is very enjoyable! I love the artwork, puzzles and unfolding of the story. I do rely heavily on the hints, (I'm a really old player) but they are clever and well done, and I expect next time I play it, I won't rely on them so much. ..and trust me, I will play it again! 😉
The story unfolds well, with sinister surprises, the puzzles are fun, and I LOVE my little companion - He's got personality! (won't say more, as I don't want to spoil the adventure for other players).
