Only one word can describe this game: Perfect

I am always a sucker for 3D puzzle adventures like The Room, The House Of Da Vinci, Returner 77, and Alleys. This is another Amazing game that I think is in the same level of them. The graphics are amazing, sure the lighting effects are scaled down but this is iOS hardware so you can’t really complain. The puzzles are quite challenging but at the same time they are fun to solve, even though I looked up a walkthrough a few times. The indoors of the castle is really detailed. All the rooms and hallways are fun to explore because of that. I also like the idea of collecting stuff like tokens, photos, toys, etc. Even though I don’t care about them much, It’s always rewarding to find them. Achievements are also a nice surprise! I always like when games like this have achievements. So in general I have 0 complaints. I haven’t finished the game yet, which is good because I will be sad when it’s over.

Very mixed reviews on this game

Pros: it's a beautifully produced game with a good story and exquisite graphics in a nice 3D environment.... navigation works well.... there are lots of puzzles, superb attention to detail, and it's long. Cons: clues and puzzles are vague and everything is so spread out that the environment became a hindrance, and there's no map. So if, like me, you're not someone with a photographic memory for where everything is, you can spend lots of time just trying to find rooms that you've been in and want to return to. It's lovely that there are a lot of rooms but after a while it just became annoying. Some rooms only have one thing in them. I got so tired of going all over the place trying to remember where something was. I also agree with the reviewer who mentioned how there are numerous puzzles that require much work and end up only getting you an achievement... doing nothing to advance you in the game. Personally, I don't really care about achievements and each time this happened it was disappointing. I thought I'd had a breakthrough... but no. I could go on, but suffice it to say that the frustration level has surpassed the pleasure level. I'm exhausted and It's not fun anymore. Not sure if I even want to try to finish. This game, while beautiful in many ways, has worn me down.

Too Hard, Not Intuitive, Tedious

The title says it all. Too much work, and too much tedious trial and error when solving puzzles, even if you know how they are to be solved. Not always clear when you solved something (missing feedback at times), leading to lots of running back and forth to check. No in-game clues, so have to depend on walkthroughs if stuck. Items do not disappear when picked up, so lots of wasted time picking up things you have seen before. Clues and such stay in inventory even after they are used and no longer relevant, creating bothersome clutter to pick through when reviewing clues. Requires advanced math and physics skills in some sense. Beautiful graphics, but long-winded narratives to read through, making the game a real slog. On some levels, just orienting yourself to move where you want to go can be a challenge. Often did not know which way I was facing, and spent many boring minutes just trying to get to a place I was before. I just wanted the game to be over at the end… having invested the time. As I write, I have only a few steps, and almost want to stop even then, because it is so tedious.
