Desktop: Map/ Menu/ Notes/ Raccoon on the Left; Inventory in Centre; Hint/ Strategy Guide/ Dragon on the Right. Options: Basic.
Play Modes: Casual; Advanced; Hardcore; Interactive Map – the map can be turned off in Play Modes if you would rather not have it. Personally, I would suggest you leave it on and only access it if you want to.
HOGs: Interactive; interesting; with fairly clear and colourful Graphics.
Puzzles: Okay, but rather annoying – I couldn’t finish the Water Puzzle; and really disliked the Dragging Electricity to Dragon Puzzle. I do not like it when these games require dexterity – if I wanted to play one of those games I would download Action & Arcade games! By including this requirement into HOGs discrimination against the less able occurs.
Collections: Amulet Shards; and Hidden Bells/Symbols.
Graphics: Colourful, imaginative, fantasy settings.
Game-play: The usual Point & Click, Back & Forth, Seek and Find kind, with Items to collect to unlock a multitude of gates, doors, chests, locks, caskets, etc, and to repair other Items to use to progress your game. The story is interesting, and drives the play forward.
Player Participation: Good – interactive games usually provide a fair amount of PP.
Satisfaction Factor: Not a bad game, but I didn’t purchase it. The annoying Puzzles put me off after a while.
Frustration Factors: Obviously the Puzzles.
Extras: Music; Mini Games; Concept Art; Wallpapers; Video; Bonus Chapter; Bestiary; Strategy Guide.
Bonus Game: No info – I only played the free trial game – and none given on the Main Menu.
Give this game a try by all means.
