Born under the rare 13th zodiac sign, Ophiuchus, Amy had no idea she was destined to save a magical world. Having already trapped children of the other 12 zodiac signs, the Dark Lord now has his sights on conquering our world as well. Amy must gather her courage to free the children’s souls and finally bring the Dark Lord’s tyranny to an end. (BigFish Games sales blurb)
This is another great game that I bought immediately. The Opening Graphics and those of the Main Menu are brilliant. The Options are more basic, and there is a Relaxed Mode of play, but the Graphics are outstanding, fabulous, imaginative, colourful and glorious. Even in the underwater scenes the graphics remain gorgeous – none of the fading out of colour usually used for those scenes.
You are assisted – sort of – by an Owl called Strix. I thought he would be more involved, as other assistants are in other fantasy games, but he is a small help. Besides, I managed on my own anyway. The Hidden Objects are a little less clear, but not bad, and some of them are very well hidden indeed. This game is really cool, intricate, clever – the extra Zodiac sign is interesting – and addictive.
I highly recommend this game.
