by BLAM GAMES; BIGFISH GAMES

INTRIGUING, MACABRE!

Story:  Save two worlds in Revived Legends: Road of the Kings! What started out as a normal day takes a turn for the fantastic when you drive into a strange fog bank. Inside, you learn that the fog is slowly blending our world with a magical realm. Soon both worlds will be destroyed, and you are the only one who can still save them! Now you must embark on a journey down the legendary Road of the Kings to confront the villain and his terrible fog. Explore enchanting locations, meet fantastic creatures, and solve perplexing puzzles as you become the hero of two worlds in this beautiful Hidden Object adventure! (BigFish Sales Blurb)

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.

Map:  Interactive.

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.

About judsartwork

I write reviews of Adventure and Hidden Object games that are Crime, Fantasy, SciFi, Renovation, Travel, Quest and/or Mystery by genre. I have a Masters in Writing (2006) and have been writing novels, both crime and fantasy for many years; plus Haiku, verse, and prose both fictional and literary. I am also an artist of modern, Acrylic, textural and hard edge work, underwater, fantasy, expressionist, and Cosmos paintings. I use mixed media (Acrylic, Watercolour, Pastels) in textural Monoprints, finding surprises to expose within each work. Having both an analytical and creative mind has meant that I have strong powers of observation, and the persistence required to follow computer problems through till I solve them. Of course I am not always successful, but am willing to ask for a little help in order to then unlock the main problem myself. My Troubleshooting Blog, 'Problems and Solutions', was the result of my tenacity.
