Death Under Tuscan Skies: A Dana Knightstone Novel is another hidden object adventure game about the young author who finds stories for her novels everywhere she goes. The game is good enough to not be a waste of time, but it's not like it will take your breath away. If you played any of the game series games before, you know who Dana Knightstone is. But even if you don't, it will not be a problem to follow the story. This time she is hoping to get a vacation after all the work on the previous book. But in stead of enjoying her stay at another place as a guest speaker, she begins to get more and more clues about a story of two people. Once she gets involved into this ghostly business, she is not going to get out of it unless everything is settled.
The much desired release of Absolutist has finally come out! Green Moon is calling for you to complete an amazing and fine mission and make the eternal dream of humanity come true. Green Moon was supposed to remind the players what a classic quest game tastes like, giving them the chance to exercise their brains. Saying without exaggeration, the developers really managed to make a go of it. If an original quest presupposes wandering around a decent number of locations trying to find or obtain a certain item, here you go!
Lost Souls: Enchanted Paintings is another release into the hidden object/adventure genre. The game would then fall into the category of the more light games of this genre, rather than the creepy ones with many horror scenes. The story of the game begins with a mom and her son being delivered and strange package. When they unpack it it turns out to be a painting. They have no idea who sent it, but the son wants it to hang in his room. That same night he is being kidnapped by the very painting. The mom is desparate to find her son. Police and FBI were not very helpful, but a fortune teller provides a way for her to try and resque him. So that's when her journey begins. The journey will spread over several paintings. Each of the paintinf is like a different world, where you are to fix whatever demage was caused by the evil wizzard.
Here is another game in the hidden object/adventure genre about some paranormal, supernatural activity. Paranormal Crime Investigations: Brotherhood of the Crescent Snake's story is bloody and creepy, and the game is challenging and beautiful. There is a lot to enjoy as long as you don't mind all the darknes of the story. You play as a detective that is very skillful in the area of paranormal cases. A number of murders have happened in a city and the police is stuck. So you are the one to deal with it. You start by arriving to a crime scene and investigating the body and the area. Soon you realize that there is a local cult involved into that. Then you know that they are going to summon their kind of god, and you are not to let that happen too. The game has three kinds of activities to offer. First off, you will play many hidden object levels. The items are not spread that carefully across the scenes, but they are not randomly cluttered either. Someitmes the required items are hidden way too well. Tere is a rechargable hintsystem for those cases.
The didn't seem too interesting or catchy from the first look. But as it aften happens, the first look may be misleading. Dreams of a Geisha is a very complex match-three pazzle, that will keep even the hardcore fans of the genre entertained. The game does lack a long unrolling story to cover the whole game. But it doesn't ruin the whole thing. You are basically challenged to help geishas be remembered in our modern world as their form of entertaining has slowly moved back. That is done by opening access to four seasonal temples. That's pretty much the whole story of the game. But the story isn't the key element of a good match-three game, right?
The title of the game didn't seem too attractive to me at first, but the game itself turned out to be quite beautiful in different ways - in how it looks and in the story it tells. I wonder what would Freud would say if you saw games like Echoes of Sorrow. I'm pretty sure that he would have been amazed with how one's wonderings within their mind and memories were brought to a more casual level. The game starts with you running away from a shadowy figure following you. But then you fall and the next thing you know is you are locked within your own mind. That may be not the worst thing that could have happened, but you still need to get back to the reality.
Shades of Death: Royal Blood. The title of this game speaks for itself. Right from the start you understand that everything in the storyline of the game will comprise death, blood, murder and mysteries. If you like dismal games with lots of locations and hidden objectsy, if you are fond of ghosts, ancient castles and knights, there are no lingering doubts that you will get everything that you would expect from this one.
If the game has a story it makes it interesting even when the game follows one of the ordinary scenarios. The storyline has no twist but it is well developed. You get an unexpected telephone call with grievous news about your father's death. It is calling your sister named Violet. She asks you to come to their family castle and help her to put their father's business in order. Since now you assume a role of her sister and help her to uncover the secret of their father's
Today is the day when a new game in the PuppetShow series is released. PuppetShow: Lost Town is the new sequel. The game is full of everything that you would expect from it having played the previous releases. One of the brightest features, of course, is how the toys are made to be the horrifying part of the game. Everyone who played at least one of the series games or at least read the title of it knows that toys and dolls and clowns are the ones who actually run the whole game. This one is no exception. The game starts with a story of a festival that takes place in a town where new caves have been discovered. As you follow a lady with her daughter into one of the caves, you become a witness of kidnapping. Some mechanic puppet, that looks a lot like a robot by the way, jumped out of the shadow, grabbed the girl and ran away.
