Houdini’s Castle http://hiddenobject.co/houdinis-castle-review/ http://hiddenobject.co/houdinis-castle-review/#comments Mon, 01 Oct 2012 06:39:51 +0000 admin http://www.hiddenobject.co/?p=2687 The Great Unknown: Houdini’s Castle Review:

Here comes a game that is off beat, engaging and entertaining. It is a simple game with everything that you need for a complete gaming experience. Those people who have gotten tired of really long games that have annoyingly difficult hidden object scenes and equally frustrating mini games; must give this game a try for a change. The game is clean, nicely designed and suitable for all kinds of players. It’s like a fairyland story where the fairy is trying to save the lover from the hands of the evil. You get to play the fairy and do all the heroic acts to save the lover.

It’s a game that will take you an adventure trip to a lost island, and you will encounter many hurdles and challenges on your quest for the answers to your questions. Throughout your journey, the hidden objects, association games and mini games will keep you busy and occupied. The game gives you ample control over the settings. The animation is amazing, and the look of the game is very inviting. All in all, it is a game that has an average difficulty, a great storyline, excellent sound and visual effects, and above all a great fun factor. Let us have a look at all the important factors of the game one by one.

Fun Factor and Storyline

On a scale of 5, The Great Unknown: Houdini’s Castle gets a perfect 5 for the fun factor. The storyline is engaging and interesting; therefore, we can give it a 5 star rating as well. Those of you who have been a part of Harry Houdini’s adventures before can look for a totally different storyline. This game is not about Harry Houdini’s odyssey, his life, adventures and death. In this game, the air plane that Houdini and his lover are travelling in crashes, and thus the story begins to unfold. Imagine a creepy deserted island and a plane crash that lands you up there; although not quite a novel idea, but certainly a winner in terms of appeal. The adventures that ensue thereafter make the plot interesting and gripping. You get to play Ms. Houdini in the game, and it’s needless to mention that you will be doing all kinds of heroic acts to fight the evil intentions of a character called Whitehead. This person Whitehead happens to be the adopted son of Harry Houdini and has taken his father hostage. This marks the starting point of the story and the adventures that follow all revolve around this.

Click images to enlarge

  

There are many twists and turns in the story that keep the interest alive. A turn comes when you get to know Whitehead better and what has made him do all this. The story goes like this. Whitehead has been trying it hard for decades to get in touch with the spirit of Houdini. He did so because he wanted to know the secrets of Chinese torture cell. Whitehead’s lover was lost long ago while trying to do the trick. To get her back, Whitehead was trying to contact the spirit. Then you begin your adventurous journey where you interact with Whitehead and try to overcome his traps. The story that follows is thrilling, and you get to do a lot of things.

At the start of The Great Unknown: Houdini’s Castle, you are introduced to the hidden object mechanics. There is a list of hidden objects, and you are supposed to look for each of them. Each hidden object scene has some amount of interactivity in it. Almost every hidden object scene has to be completed twice. The second time you are introduced to an item association game. This is one of the most interesting parts of the game, and it actually puts your intelligence quotient to test. You are no longer supposed to look for items directly on the list, but you have to build associations between objects and look for associated objects. An ordinary association game involves association between a violin and a violin bow; there are some other associations that are tough to figure out. It may take you some mindful thinking to complete the tougher mind association games, and you may find yourself stuck up in some of the games. In such situations, the strategy guides comes to your rescue.

Unlike most other hidden object games, this game has no maps or navigation guides. So, if you get lost or miss out on certain hidden objects, or get stuck up with a puzzle, then you will have to fend for yourself. On the whole, the fun factor of the game is high, and there are fewer movements of frustration and boredom.

Visual and Sound Quality

The graphics and the animation of the game are a perfect 5. The visuals are beautiful and play a prominent role in keeping the interest of the player alive. The graphics are really pleasing, and animation quality is astounding. The colours are bright and vibrant. The sounds and voiceovers of the game are simply superb. The game options give you the freedom to change the settings of music, sounds and voiceover. You get custom cursor, widescreen and full screen options. On the whole, we can say the art work and audio are excellent and add to the quality of the game.

Level of Challenge

For the level of difficulty, we can give The Great Unknown: Houdini’s Castle a score of 4. The hidden object scenes and puzzles are difficult, but not frustrating. The only things that can put you off in terms of difficulty are the association games. Some are really hard to figure out and at that time you may have to seek the help of the hint button. The fact that there are no maps or navigation guides makes things tough at times. You may have to backtrack sometimes to locate the hidden objects or puzzles that you may have missed out on. The puzzles are pretty much standard like jigsaws and tile rotation puzzles. The game can be played to two difficulty levels: easy and difficult. The game is shorter than most hidden object games.

This is the Original Big Fish Games Description::

Your honeymoon is cut short when your plane crashes on an uncharted island in The Great Unknown: Houdini’s Castle. You awake to discover a madman has kidnapped your husband. To get him back, you’ll have to use all your wits to pass his sinister tests and solve the mysteries of Houdini’s castle. Along the way, you’ll uncover Houdini’s secret past and learn about the brilliant apprentice who changed his life. Can you expose Houdini’s greatest trick to save your husband and escape the island?

The Blacksmith’s Daughter http://hiddenobject.co/the-blacksmiths-daughter-review/ http://hiddenobject.co/the-blacksmiths-daughter-review/#comments Sat, 22 Sep 2012 18:55:32 +0000 admin http://www.hiddenobject.co/?p=2438 The lovers of Margrave series, who have been a part of Edwina’s adventures in the previous two games, would not be disappointed in the third one as well. This game also contains its fair share of adventure, puzzles, hidden objects and above all, a whole lot of fun. The collector’s version of this game was released a few days ago which saw many enthusiasts lining up for a purchase. The game was an instant hit as soon as beta testing started. The game has everything that can keep you glued on to your computer screens for hours at a stretch, except for the time when you would like to jump in your seats after having unrevealed a hidden object. The storyline is engaging and enthralling the gameplay will keep you completely engrossed, and the graphics are in vibrant colours that please your eyes. All in all, the game is a winner.


Gameplay

  • Margrave: The Blacksmith’s Daughter takes you on to an adventure trip to the city of Cyclops. The story of the game is set in the 18th century when the god of pagans was the single eyed, Oban. The era thus depicted is intriguing and interesting. What is even more intriguing is the town of Cyclops itself. This town emerges only after 300 years, so if lost once, it can be found only after a wait of 300 years. This is the baseline of this story. This time around when the town emerges Edwina’s boyfriend Tom gets kidnapped by one of the citizens of this long lost town. Edwina Margrave sets out on a journey to the city of Cyclops in search of her boy friend who has been kidnapped. She has no clue about who might have done it, and she is left with little time to find out her boy friend because if she loses time, then the town will be lost for another 300 hundred years.

 

  • This sets the theme for Margrave: The Blacksmith’s Daughter. The quest for the answers of who might be the kidnapper and why would he do that is the subject of the game. Edwina’s rescue mission to the city of Cyclops becomes more of an adventure when the fascinating civilisation of Cyclops unfolds in front of her, and she is encountered with puzzles, mysteries, maps and hidden objects. Her attempt to rescue her boyfriend turns into a mission to save the mysterious town of Cyclops. The twists and turns in the storyline hold the attention of the player all throughout the game. The game can be played in two modes, expert and casual. The best part of the game is that it is interactive in nature, the moment you push the start button, the realistic voices of the characters keep you engaged in the game. Even if you feel lost at some point in time in the game, the characters can give you hints on what to do next, this makes the game quite attractive.

 

  • If you are not interested in getting hints from your Cyclops friends, then you can certainly bank upon the strategy guide for hints. The strategy guide is quite elaborate, and strategies are well illustrated. On your way through the game, you will be encountered with many puzzles and mini games. Also, unlike other games, you can easily skip the puzzles but this is certainly not recommended because the puzzles are quite interesting. They are not difficult and keep the interest alive in the game. They are like little surprises, which Edwina encounters on her journey.
  • One such surprise is her encounter with the statues that emerge all of a sudden from nowhere and then Edwina has to solve the mystery to resume her journey. The mini games are equally interesting and must be tried. There is a map, which shows the entire town of Cyclops; this map is interactive too. It can be used to mark your path through the town and you can see what all you have been doing and what all places you have passed through. For this, map can be changed to the discover mode. The characters also add a tinge of humour to the game by way of their dialogues. On the whole, game is captivating and is capable of keeping you hooked on the screens for a long time.

Hidden Objects

For any game, the hidden objects are the most prominent and interesting feature. The Margrave: The Blacksmith’s Daughter too offers you the thrill of finding the hidden objects. The hidden objects in this game are well hidden, but at the same time, they are not impossible to locate. The hidden objects are fairly well camouflaged into the graphics of the game that makes you put some effort in order to locate them.

The hidden object scenes in the game are static and well disguised, with only a small part of the object peeking out of the surface. So, they are not invisible, but cleverly hidden. The camouflage of the hidden objects is compensated by the fact that there is no penalty on clicks. So, if you are unable to locate a hidden object, you can simply keep clicking around to trace a hidden object. This makes the search easy and less frustrating.

Graphics

The moment you start the game, you will be welcomed by the pleasant graphics of the Margrave: The Blacksmith’s Daughter. The graphics are excellent, and the characters look absolutely real. The animations in the game are impressive, and the graphics are accentuated by the background sounds. Brown, yellow, red, gold, and green are dominating colours in the graphics and create an ambience that is a reflection of 18th century.

Some people might find the colours a little dull, but only because the colours are not too bright, the graphics look pleasant, and you can sit in front of the screen for hours without troubling your eyes. The graphics are pleasantly inviting and recreate the ambience of an 18th century town in an excellent way.

This is the Original Big Fish Games Description::

Embark on a thrilling rescue mission in Margrave: The Blacksmith’s Daughter! The town of the Cyclops appears for a single day once every three hundred years, on an island lost to cartographers. On this Day of Alignment, the town rises and sets with the midsummer sun. As the Margrave saga nears its devastating conclusion, Edwina Margrave embarks on a rescue mission into the town. Her only chance of escape is to return life to the arcane machines, and hope to the sole survivor of an ancient war, in Margrave: The Blacksmith’s Daughter. Prepare yourself for the adventure of a lifetime: the legacy of an entire civilization depends upon your cunning and compassion.

This is a special Collector’s Edition release full of exclusive extras you won’t find in the standard version. As a bonus, Collector’s Edition purchases count toward three stamps on your Monthly Game Club Punch Card!

The Great Ring http://hiddenobject.co/the-great-ring/ http://hiddenobject.co/the-great-ring/#comments Sat, 08 Sep 2012 09:28:33 +0000 admin http://www.hiddenobject.co/?p=2240 Don’t worry, Mystic Legacy’s famed, mysterious element and the thrilling pace are intact in “Mystic Legacy: The Great Ring”, but you will sure to find a new level of excitement and sophistication in almost all the characters in the game, and precisely this thing raises the story way above the norms. The premise is pretty straightforward; your peaceful vacation will turn into a nightmare in this game and that’s all. However, this simple one line story has the potential to keep you at the edge of your seat in almost all parts of the game. The amazing thing about “Mystic Legacy: The Great Ring” is that, the more absurd and unbelievable the game becomes, the greater we feel closer to the characters in the game.

The Great Ring Gameplay

Much of the credit of The Great Ring goes to its creators who have developed the whole scenario as believable as possible. The story starts with you as the protagonist who feels suspicious about his friend Mark and follows him away from the group only to find him at a secluded Romanian castle. Here is the place where all the adventure begins. The game is full of twists and turns, and that may be the reason behind its unparalleled addictiveness. Once the story starts unfolding, you will find that your friend Mark was bitten by the blood sucking vampires. However, the real twist only comes when you find that the vampires actually drink only the fake blood. This brings back the focus again to Mark.

“The Great Ring” is basically a hidden object adventure game. The best thing about this game is that when you turn on the game, you will immediately be transported to the virtual world that seems so believable. The game can be played in two modes; easy one and hard one, but you have to face penalties only in the harder one.

Graphics

In fact, this is the best thing about “Mystic Legacy: The Great Ring”; though it’s a hidden object adventure game, you will find the extremely detailed graphics in this game. You will find the varied terrains and impressive lighting effects in almost every aspect of the game. The developers have actually taken the challenge to make the characters as close to reality as possible by including certain graphical elements such as incredibly detailed shadows, awesome weather effects, and change in lighting according to the situations in the game, etc. All the static elements such as the castles and the pathways are not as bland as seen in some of the other games recently. You will find that everything that you see in this game has a purpose; everything is part of the mystery called The Great Ring.

Hidden object parts of the game

  • The game lets you play the game in two modes, and there is even the choice to make your own customised cursor. The behaviour of the hidden objects depends on the mode of play; for instance, in easy mode when you bring your cursor over the listed words, you will be shown a profile of the hidden object. In easy mode, there are even hint-buttons available, and the objects are fairly easy to find. You can press the hint button, but it will take around 30 seconds for refilling. You will also be provided a diary to keep track of your achievements. Moreover, there are puzzles that you can skip or refill in easy mode.
  • The thing that makes this amazing game stands out from the crowd and perfect for women is its brilliant humour, which is unusual to find in any vampire game. This humorous element keeps things interesting and fun- to-pay in “Mystic Legacy: The Great Ring”.

Vacation Quest: Australia http://hiddenobject.co/vacation-quest-australia/ http://hiddenobject.co/vacation-quest-australia/#comments Fri, 24 Aug 2012 07:10:19 +0000 admin http://www.hiddenobject.co/?p=2209 vacation-quest-australia screenshotVacation Quest: Australia is a game that you should play if you have nothing to do but relax. In total the game only has 24 hidden object scenes, making it one of the more basic games in the genre. This game would be perfect if you wanted to relax and enjoy the beautiful, fake, scenes of Australia. The plot line is empty and the objective of the game doesn’t hold any full meaning. But like most of our articles, we at hiddenobject.co have to decide, is this buy or die?

You play the game of Vacation Quest: Australia from day to day, where each day is composed of an extremely linear 2-3 scene. Even better, scenes repeat themselves after the 5th day. The primary objective is to collect items, while the purpose for this is not exactly clear. The items in these secondary trips back are different, but the scenes obviously become easier as you spend more time in them. There isn’t a whole lot of puzzles or game within the game, but like most “escape the room games”, there are a lot of combinations needed for items in order to progress in this hidden object game.

Hidden ObjectQuest Games You Will Love:

Fierce Tales: The Dog’s Heart

Fierce Tales: The Dog’s Heart

Hidden object games usually take on an intimidating solo-track campaign that leaves you running around an abandoned house fleeing from a monster.

The citizens of Houndspoint have always loved and trusted their canine companions, but a recent wave of coordinated attacks by a pack of strange dogs has thrown the snowy mountain town into a state of fear….

 

Echoes of the Past: Royal House of Stone

Echoes of the Past: Royal House of Stone

The story of Echoes of The Past: Royal House of Stone quite interesting. You visit a old creep castle, and when you look at some paintings of some

 

In addition, many text clues come as phrases, rather than the names of the items themselves. The clues are short and simple, usually extremely explicit to the item that is in the room (some are a little more complicated, but with some basic knowledge you can navigate through this game with ease). But like most hidden object games, there is a hint system. Why is this important? It has an offer for unlimited hints, to make this easy game easier.


An interesting feature of this game is that it offers 2,400 hidden objects in all. What is unfortunate about this? Mostly all of the objects you find are the same things, making the 2,400 objects more like 400 objects (impressive, but still a bit misleading). It would have been better if there were more diversity in the objects, but we cannot always have what we want.

You could probably assume this game’s fate by just skimming this article. But we are going to have to throw a curve ball due to the uniqueness that this game offers. While it is one of a kind game because it is so streamline, it does not offer what most people think about in a hidden object game. We recommend downloading a free trial at bigfishgames, and deciding from there.

So, Buy or Die seems a little more like Try in this case.

The Theatre of Shadows: As You Wish http://hiddenobject.co/the-theatre-of-shadows-as-you-wish/ http://hiddenobject.co/the-theatre-of-shadows-as-you-wish/#comments Tue, 21 Aug 2012 04:20:15 +0000 admin http://www.hiddenobject.co/?p=2135 Your job in The Theatre of Shadows: As You Wish, is to hunt down the locations where evil ensues, and you must destroy it at the source. Your objectives eventually lead you to an interesting place, the Theatre of Shadows. This is a dark and mysterious place where evil “spawn” in an attempt to spread throughout the world. While the Theatre of Shadows does not appear to be a threat to you, the dark ambience of the theatre cannot be missed, and it comes to light that there is a lot to discover. After meeting the theatre owner, your suspicions of dastardly deeds is affirmed and you begin one of the most frightening journey of your life.

The game’s graphics are pretty good, but the cut scenes can be “out of focus” at times, we do not know if this is ambience or a mistake, but it was off-putting. The voice acting is not the greatest either, though that of the puppets’ is quite well done and truly bone chilling. The game plays well as well as performs will on most systems, which means that so far there is not many complaints.

The mini-games in The Theatre of Shadows: As You Wish are unique and challenging, sometimes it is quite confusing what the objective is, but once it is figured out everything seems to be moderate in difficulty. That being said, the game is tricky without being too complicated. Hardcore players will appreciate this game for its hidden object scenes puzzles for the aforementioned reasons.

Summer SuperSports http://hiddenobject.co/summer-supersports/ http://hiddenobject.co/summer-supersports/#comments Sat, 18 Aug 2012 20:03:31 +0000 admin http://www.hiddenobject.co/?p=2124 Summer Supersports takes a twist on the conventional hidden object game by embracing the opportunities of multiple puzzles and mini-games. Being situated in an entertainment centre for the majority part of the game (other venues include a baseball field and airport), the games are endless and the puzzles too. However, the game does not lose track of the Hidden Object background it was based on, which is not something that can be said for dedicated HOGs. It is quite obvious that this game is a buy, no way it should be taken lightly.

First off, the game is appropriate for any age player. The venues offer fun and excitement designed to be enjoyable for anyone, an entire family can enjoy this game. As well, the scenes are fabulous in their design, making hidden object gaming that much better. You would think that designing a packed baseball stadium would be tedious and shortcuts would be taken, well it seem the developers have taken their time and really pieced together the scenes as they would be in real life, which we can all commend them on.



Now down to the mini-games and puzzles. Many of the scenes are “Waldo” scenes, meaning you have to find hidden object around the scene in order to progress or get an achievement of some sort. These scenes exist at the airport, the baseball field, and even just on the street! Making this game playable and enjoyable in every scene. The developers have been creative with there design so that every aspect of the game can be played as a puzzle or mini-game. For instance at the airport you can piece together a map of the world using puzzle pieces before progressing to your flight. The entire game take place in London, England (after your flight), and the game features a bevy of athletic sports, which makes it reminiscent of the Summer Olympics (coincidence? Perhaps not!).

This title keeps throwing curveballs, because a game with this much entertainment, you would cost a lot of money. While it used to boast a $9.99 buy price, it no longer has that. Instead, it is now priced at $2.99 at bigfish.com! (Link at the bottom of the page). This is a true bargain and will continue to be until you have played this game dry, it is one of those kinds of games.

 

Overall this game has a few very good highlights. The abundance of mini-games really helps the game’s quality overall, and while it can get repetitive, if you pass through them quickly it should be no problem at all. The puzzles are also very fun, while many are quite simple, still quite fun and entertaining. There is no way anyone could consider this an ultimate die, overall the game would be as fun as Grim Tales, or Redemption Cemetery, if it was not for the lack of story line that this game has. Besides that this game is both fun and the replay value is high, perfect for any beginner or expert hidden object gamer.
