After playing and enjoying Mystery on Telescope Hill (also by Aircamp), I was looking forward to Secret of Chimera Labs. I wasn’t disappointed. This game was much longer and significantly harder...not that I’m complaining. Like other Aircamp games, the puzzles are more complex than the repetitive slider/combination lock puzzles found in most games in this genre. They’re also organic to the story and the environments, which I always find more interesting. These puzzles can be tricky, and some require walking away and coming back later with fresh eyes, but solving them is always possible without hints, and rewarding as a result.
I appreciate that the game generates a journal for you, since there is a LOT of information required to suss out the clues in these multi-layered puzzles. There is some light math involved, and I sometimes had trouble differentiating between sight variations in color, but that didn’t detract from the fun. Overall, this game isn’t quite on the level of the Room and House of DaVinci games, but it’s a pretty solid entry in the genre, and well worth playing.
A good point and click mystery!
Creative and clever, the settings and puzzles in this game don’t conform to the standard point and click game expectations— Chimera Labs is weird and wonderful and the puzzles are interesting and range from simple to challenging.
I only have two complaints! One, some of the puzzles rely on math skills that were beyond my ability. I would have liked some help for those of us who are not numbers-inclined. Two, the art is great but the font treatments are terrible and look like they crawled out of 2004 Photoshop! They are really jarring in comparison to the well-rendered scenes and take away from the overall quality of the game.
Short, Control’s are rudiment
The graphics are okay but the controls are primitive at best. No panning or moving around in the room. You can touch a doorway to move/jump to the other room, then hit the circle arrow icon to move back to the previous room. I found “the room” and “XON” to be much better games for about the same price (the first 2 parts of the room were cheaper).
The pop up description/comments were soooo annoying. I would touch on objects looking for things to pick up and pop up descriptions would continuously come up covering a frustrating amount of the screen. The pop up comments/descriptions would be things like “ergonomic chair” or “there are lots of books”. The game would seriously be improved by deleting 90% of the comments/descriptions.
