Would have been 5 stars but.....
The storyline was great, the graphics were great, the puzzles were great, everything was great except that darn map. It just shows you where you're at and doesn't let you know where your next objectives are. You can hardly see what areas to go to because the pictures are very small and you have to keep jumping around to try to find where to go to next. Many times I have the object that I needed and I knew where I needed to go to use it, but I couldn't find the place because of the map. It should give you your next few objectives so that you have an idea of where to go instead of hopping around in every single scene to try to find the place or the puzzle (that is often hidden off to the side in one of the scenes). This would've been a five star rating from me if not for the unusable teleporting map that didn't give you where you could find objectives to complete. Fix that and it will be an easy 5 star rating from everyone!
Hint button has a bug
As others have pointed out, there is a problem with the hint button working only once. It looks like it is not recharging after a usage. I have to get out of the program, double tap the home button and remove the program and restart it. No need to reboot the machine. The puzzles are good and the plot is good. Over all it is a fun game to play but the hint button issue is an obvious testing mistake.
Mythic Wonders Philosopher’s Stone has the ability to be a great game. I’m looking forward to their next game. It’ll allow me to have more of an idea of the “style” of the programmers.
All in all, I enjoyed the game. But there were a few issues that bothered me enough to give 3* rating, rather than a 4*.
•Some of the HOGs were badly done. Things hidden behind others, or are at the very edge of the screen.
•The Puzzles didn’t always have the best directions
•It was too touchy with the directional arrows. I was thrown out (backwards) of almost all the HOGs/Puzzles at one time or
•No custom controls. Actually, it’s just expert or casual...which is really annoying to me.
•Interactive map (but still needs work.)
•It has a unique storyline twist. I’ve never seen this situation before, and it was interesting to see where the programmers were taking the story.
I enjoyed this enough to be interested in playing the next game they release; hopefully they’ll read reviews & change a few things before releasing it.
