Hi there. Well this game is pretty basic, way too simple, the characters are as engaging as a pebble on the road, the only challenge here is to find all the “eyes of horus”.
You play as Iris Birdwood a paranormal detective, who as such, can access anybody’s house and any supersecret project they had been working on.
The writing and design feel amateurish at best, they do try to bring new features but that isn’t enough to make the product shine. Multitool is a good but unexplored idea, there are just a few hidden objects scenes that are at least mechanically different from one another. The voice acting is hideous, especially for the main character, which is a shame.

If you are looking for a good HOG with decent plot and development, this is not it. If you are looking for a simple HOG to pass time it could be worth trying.

I enjoyed this, good action packed shooter with hell beings as allies and enemies, many secrets per level, cheese lines, easter eggs and giantic bosses.

Ghost pirates of Vooju Island

Fun characters, good story, graphics are dated obviously but stll good. Unlike other games from the genere you get to play with 3 characters that can, and have to, interact between them via menu to solve certain puzzles, each one of them have their missions in different places that help to solve the main conflict. Interactable elements are well blended in the scenaries; there are a lot of silly fun jokes in dialogs.


Gabriel Knight: Sins of the fathers

This is the 20 years aniversary edition.
The game tells the events that occur during the investigation of the main character to write a book based on a series of murders that are occurring in New Orleans, the “voodo murders” Poor Gabriel tormented in nigthmares, broken & running into a dangerous path that will make him to learn about his own past and the dark secrets from New Orleans underworld.
Excellent game, the plot is very good and engaging whit lovable characters, although predictable it doesn’t diminish the quality of the product. If you like point and click adventures this one is highly recommended; this version contain a graphic novel, but don’t read it until you have completed the game at least one time (reaching day 6 is the minimum progression recomended). You (Gabriel) can die several times in the game, like in the Black mirror games, so be cautious.


Twisted lands trilogy

This ones have some original puzzles, it’s the classic HOG gameplay and i have to tell this the first game does an excellent job setting a dark atmosphere and a thrilling feel, but it all falls apart; at first the plot engage you but it fails to deliver, the writing seems amateurish-weak and the quick, short, poorly animated cutscenes didn’t help.
What i liked is that the games had me walking around with a lot of tools in the inventory (why i would left behind a very useful screwdriver or a hammer after one use, looking at you Artifex Mundy). Nonetheless as a whole the experience feels unsatisfactory.
I’m still have to play the last one of the trilogy but my expectations are very low as i have read that is the franchise’s worst game.

Silence is an experience and you have to live it, as the previous entry “The Whispered World” it’s beatiful, the plot and writing are amazing; i felt in love immediatly with the game and it’s characters.

Three games, three experiences; they can leave you nothing but questions or maybe in sadness… or self realization. These games are short and beautiful.

Surprisingly good, nice variety of minigames, good twist in the hidden object model by the end, short and cheerful songs go along very well whit the game in general and the highest difficulty has a time limit to solve every scene, an excellent adition to the mix.

This one didn’t aged well, i had good expectations after the little cameos from Samantha in Angelica Weaver: Catch me when you can, but using irreal sizes for many objects ruins the experience, there is also a lot of nonsese happening there even for a HOG; the only mistery this characters can’t solve in 3 seconds, conecting ridicoluos clues, is the whereabouts of Sam’s father.
Hope to find some improvement in the next Samantha game and waiting to enjoy the other one of Robinson Crusoe that i have.

This have some interesting story, near the end a cool surprise :) and a “boss fight” but the ending was dissapointing for me.
Good minigames and puzzles, but very easy.

Pixel Puzzles 2: Anime Completed

There is a button to dismiss the fairy :D
Good to kill some time, some puzzles have odd shapes that would never work in real life but is ok, also its random rotation is a very nice touch.
The bad thing is that the pieces gets fixed into its position on the board rather than snap between each other.

Dreamscapes: The Sandman Beaten

I think this is better than the secuel, i’m gonna say again the beholders were a totally wasted opportunity.
The game has a beautiful art, it is more like an adventure as it doesn’t have a scene with a list of objects to find, it have puzzles and objects to solve such puzzles hidden in the scenery itself.

Happy Gaming!

Dreamscapes: Nightmare’s Heir - Premium Edition Beaten

I liked it, very short, good story; i have to give it points for some original minigames, although easy ones. 2 things were really bad.

  1. The abrupt and lazy ending in both cases, main story and extra.
  2. If you start a second running you have to unlock all the achievemments again!

In my opinion the game could be more interesting if some of the beholders (hidden creepy eyes) in a scene prevent you to perfom progressing actions or have an actual relevance, not just for the sake of been there.

Almos finishing the game i got stuck, because i locked the inventory and can’t interact in a little spot behind it, lost a lot of time there.
