Ratings and Reviews
Simply a must-have
Since finally trying Blackthorn Castle last year, I was thoroughly impressed by the lack of glitches, smoothe gameplay with a functional and easy to use User Interface, explorative setting locations, challenging yet not too difficult to beat, quality graphics, realistic style, sound effects and music as well as the adventurous nature of these games. One after the other, I tried each game and delightfully found the same satisfaction in all (current) six.
Then, you released your bountiful update for the Lost Ship, which was originally much too short. Now seeing the pattern of adding similar updates and extra content, in order of original release, I eagerly await more to be released.
If I had to describe these games, in as few words, I would say they are honestly must-haves and instant buys for this genre. If a new game were to be released, I would buy it as soon as I found out about it. Having them all up to now is not enough because they are so satisfying. But there's more.
I discovered an interesting alternative to their replay value. Sure once you play them you might get tired. I liked Blackthorn so much I kept replaying it, but with an unexpected challenge I put to myself. Memory. I've repeatedly played them several times each as a way to stregthen my memory
So, I look forward to each new game/additional content Syntaxity releases. To be honest, you couldn’t release add-on or new game content fast enough.
A standout for efficient gameplay
Having come to this one after getting through a few titles from Glitch games, this one was a breath of fresh air. A nice, bright casual environment with lovely artwork, and so easy to navigate with the fast travel and automatic snapshots of important clues.
While the design certainly isn't what I consider groundbreaking, and I get frustrated sometimes with the random nature of where key inventory items are placed, in the end it's a very satisfying experience that won't stress you out too much (well, except for a few of the mini-games).
A great alternative to the more the darker, more intense adventure titles and I plan to delve into more of Syntaxity's offerings.
Fun game, interesting story, challenging
This was a fun game that was definitely on the longer side. I just could not have completed without the walkthrough that I found online. Some ways to use items were easier to figure out while others, I would never have figured them out. I had to go to the walkthrough. I may have turned to the walkthrough sooner then I should have but there were many that just didn't not make sense. How would I know to use "item A" that I found a while ago on this other thing to get the item this other area is hiding? Lol like green potion, fishes, smoke?!? There needs to be some sort of basic hint of something or some basic guidance on what to do with a given item. Some vague idea to just get in the same area as to where you would possibly use the item, then we can figure it out from there. If we buy the hints then we can get more specificity there. Would still recommend though! Definitely challenging and takes a while to go through!
