Technically OK but I never got into it

My rating is closer to 3 1/2 stars, but I'm rounding up because (a) I liked the complex HOPs, (b) the developer went the extra mile with collectibles, and (c) I may be too critical because I personally found the game dull.

The plot never really crystallizes, and the ending to the main game is abrupt. The bonus chapter is very brief, so it doesn't make up for the shortcomings of the storyline.

However, the graphics, cut scenes and soundtrack are well done, and there is a good blend between HOPs and minigames. Most of the HOPs involve multiple steps, and they are a strong positive for the game. Also, the developer provided not only a set of collectibles, but souvenirs that you can gather from designated scenes after you have completed the bonus chapter.

The controls need some work. Difficulty is not configurable. Touch sensitivity for items and movement is erratic.

On the whole, this was a game that I looked forward to finishing, so it's difficult to say that I recommend it. If you can buy it on sale, you may find it worth your time.

I Just Can't "Whisper" That This "Myth" Is Worth Telling!

I am really enjoying this gem! The pretty graphics are fairly sharp and clear with finely detailed and intricately hand drawn scenes. The artwork is visually appealing; the color scheme is heavily dominated by a rich and vibrant blue/green shade that creates a mysterious, ominous atmosphere. The background noises appropriately elevate a level of suspense with the sounds of murky, swampy water drifting, the chirping of crickets, and the haunting calls of water fowl. You cannot customize your settings; this developer needs to update their standards to meet players' needs. The inventory is labeled, interactive, and puzzle-like; items require assembly. The teleport map will indicate objectives or available actions depending on mode of difficulty; locations are labeled. The HOS are very interactive, multilayered, and consist of various types. The puzzles are creative, varied, and in sequence at times; I love the one where you create your path on the map while avoiding obstacles. You have collectibles; they can be well hidden. No glitches so far; transition between scenes is smooth and quick. Overall, it's a highly interactive game with nice variety; and it's a nice way to spend time.

Great game play, but story is not very convincing

I have enjoyed all of the of the Myths of the World Series. Mostly because the stories were as compelling as the game play. But this game's plot was confusing and only seemed to string together the hidden object and other puzzles. Cmon, the story is what makes it myth worthy. You can do better than this.
