Foxes lair Kyrrelin’s profile

This little Fox hoarded many games. She wants to play all ot them, but her negative point is that she ends up playing the same games over and over again... Yes, Mass Effect, Witcher and Dragon Age, we are talking about you!
Also Steamgifts wins deserves more attention!


Lets do something about it, so even other games get equally played.

Game lists

I have started to mark my done games at the end of 2018. Those before I don't really remember, but thanks to some tracking sites I was able to recover games with achievements, but sadly only them and only on Steam. There is a lot of games without them that I just don't remember when they were played, so the stats are not perfectly accurate.

August / September 2021 report


Just a few games were played during August. That got better in the September. We have decided to revisit our childhood games and played some adventures on GoG. I have also completed the whole campaign for classic ZooTycoon, which is one of my favorite games. It’s sooo brilliant even after all those years. I have always played it casually, this time it was a proper “story mode”. I still hope that one day they will put it on GoG or somewhere. Playtime over the years and so would count some hundreds of hours.

Oh, we also completed Sweet Pool. In English finally, took us 30 hours to find that truest ending. Greatly spent time!

Enough of small talks and now to the actual assassinations! Good luck in a new month and enjoy your games!

Through a phone call you witness an interrogation of a young girl named Hope, called by others 390-H. When she gets transported to the prisoners section you are her only hope for getting out alive. Through the security cameras you can watch the surroundings and safely lead her towards the goal. At your disposal are audio recording, private emails and various items. Through them you learn more about Hope, the mysterious facility Metamorphosis she is locked in and people responsible for it. Can you help her to reach the outside world?

I really liked the fact that you are hidden behind the cameras and our main heroine just follows our lead. She is not completely useless though, as she can defend herself or more likely stealthily attack others in an advance. She can also collect items for us, but all the hacking and checking of stuff is in our hands.
Game is divided into chapters. Each chapter is set into a (sometimes slightly) different environment, in which new sorts of guards or challenges, such as bugs or protected cameras, get introduced. That way you have to adapt your stealth tactic. When she ends up in the hands of the patrolling guards, called Prizraks, they lead her to the nearest holding cell. After they leave the room, you are free to continue. If you die in later chapters you get respawned on the nearest checkpoint, which are pretty often. To be honest I felt pretty safe most of the time, one can even say that the stealth sequences didn't offered much of a challenge.

Whole story is built on a dystopian world, rather similar to George Orwell's piece 1984 in terms of surveillance. The mastermind behind the Metamorphosis, their whole Republique is the Overseer (also the Headmaster) Kenichiro Treglazov. His Manifesto sets the course of everyone's life, thoughts and beliefs. The game offers us insights to his mind through collectable banned books and other clickable items connected to his persona. Opposite to him stands revolutionar Daniel Markus Zager, who fights against Treglazov's utopia. His voice tapes are scattered around, waiting to be collected and listened to. If I think about it, there are not a lot of people. We have there Librarian, caretaker Mireille Prideaux, helpful guard Cooper and the commander of Prizraks and some journalist (no, I don't remember their names). Others get only mentioned in emails, on tapes or in some other forms. Prizraks have names, but are otherwise unimportant.

Gameplay was smooth without any serious problems, just sometimes it was hard to lead Hope in the exact position I wanted. The game is ported to PC as it was developed on phones, but I couldn't even tell. Maybe because I don't play games on my phone? Anyway, I liked the graphics and the voice acting was also pretty good. Was nice to listen to some French. Music… hm, now I am not sure if there was anything particular… but the endings (each chapter had different) offered some nice tracks.

So, I enjoyed it. I liked the idea and maybe got the message… but I am not sure if I really did. The thing is, it's all too vague. When you begin your rescue mission, you are eager to explore and to uncover the secrets of Metamorphosis. And then you sit and listen to all the philosophical, political, metaphorical talks and it just gets too much to comprehend. From all the books they were discussing I have read just a small portion, some were totally unknown for me (I think it all depends on the country you are from and the literature you are taking in the school). Some deep talks about them, their ideas and authors went completely beside me. If you like those kind of books, if you have already read them, if you have enough of insight into the issue, it would surely offer you much more. Also I believe that vast majority of gamers doesn't bother to listen to all of it.
In the end, after all that was said in the game, I don't know what is this Metamorphosis (is it facility? is it city? is it country?), what exactly are the Pre-Cals, what is the Arrival they are all preparing for, why Treglazov did what he did? I know that all of this is inconsistent to you, but I don't want to spoiler you, I just have to let it out… Treglazov has no face, he is always blurred, even on pictures and sculptures. I understand that it's because they didn't want to give him some specific design, as that way we can imagine under him any totalitarian we want. If I count correctly he should be a rather older man, he even seemed so, but his voice actor had younger voice - I would guess around forty, that added a little discomfort to how should I exactly imagine him.
The third and fourth chapter were best for me, things were set to motion and there was some "action". But in the end it evaporated. Into… I don't even know. All in all, I enjoyed it, but I think that the whole potential wasn't achieved.

As a new intern, Allison has to work on each department. Many different challenges await her there. She is going to be confronted with different opinions, she has to learn how to cooperate with her colleagues and the hardest of all, she has to learn how to leave the emotions of her work. All of this in the shadow of growing flu epidemic.

The first installment in the Heart's series. I have no experience with the original game so I can't compare the differences much (during the time I bought and played the sequel it wasn't sold on Steam yet). There was no problem playing it after the sequel, you are at least familiar with all the controls and characters. I found the mini-games varied and fun to do. Also I didn't have a bigger problem to achieve 3 stars on them as with some mini-games in the sequel. Story is not as serious as in the next game, but that's understandable as we are just beginning to know everyone.
I have enjoyed it and can only recommend.

A HOG from SquareEnix! O.O

Japan during the 18th century. One night Irene finds her husband Richard dead. Local police chief evaluated it as a suicide, thanks to the note close to his body. There her husband, an employee of an US Embassy, admits his participation in smuggling precious and valued pieces of Japanese history and that the shame is too much for him to bear any longer. But Irene is convinced that her beloved husband would never do such a thing, so she decides to uncover the culprit of such hideous crime. In her search for truth she will visit many different locations - Embassy, police station, docks, Geisha house etc. As she follows little crumbs left by her husband she can rely on help from Kenzo, Richard's friend, and young detective Fujikawa. With them she will try to clear her husband's name and punish the murderer.

Nice relaxing hidden object game with few short puzzles. There are a lot of hidden object scenes, usually one for each location you visit and they get recycled. There is a huge amount of items in the screens and some of them are really hidden very nicely. You have two forms of hints - first will show you the shape of the item, second will show you the exact location. Only used the shapes, but finding some of the items was pretty hard. Graphic is older with soft colors, hidden object scenes seemed a little bit blurry. There is no voice acting, but the characters are changing their stands and expressions so it's nicely lively. Music is relaxing. To get all the achievements you have to play it twice, but it was enjoyable even for the second run. It's perfect for slow casual playing.

Funny and charming little game about three bearded brothers (I presume) and their adventures on the vast seas!

One day our bearded fishermen find a bottle with a map in it. Each of it anticipates a different thing, but to their surprise it's blank with only their island being marked. They go home to ask about it around the village and they are told that they need to draw in it their own adventures. Adventure it is then! As they once more set sail something happens and what they do after that will shape their future. Many times again!

In each adventure you have three points where you decide how their story will unfold. The skeleton of each storyline (do you even say it in English like this?) is the same with different outcomes. For you to see all of the possibilities you have to revisit them. The parts you have already seen a few times can't be skipped, but they are quite short and our bearded trio even reacts to the fact that they have been there already, so that was a nice aspect. Minimalist art suits the game very well as the great sounds and music, very adorable. Writing is amazing and the game as a whole offers some great laughs.

If the game had some more ending sequences, it would be perfect. Truth is that it can be a little tiresome to go through the similar scene so many times, but we played only a few stories each play session so it wasn't so overwhelming. Otherwise it's a short game that will bring a smile upon your face!

Jane and Mike were enjoying their boat trip when mysterious sign appeared in the sky. In a moment they got washed from their boat in a huge storm. Once Jane wakes up on a small island she realizes that they got separated… What's worse, Mike got kidnapped by some mad man! Could it be the lighthouse keeper? So Jane starts to explore the island which turns out to be some creepy ship graveyard. She has to uncover all mysteries surrounding this forsaken place to save her beloved.

An okay HOG with a lot of backtracking and sometimes unclear things to do. In the bonus chapter we got to play as Mike. Also it reminded me a little of Small Town Terrors Pilgrim's Hook, it had a similar vibe to it.

Good puzzle game about a Seer who opened his eyes in a world that orders them closed. To bring the change to the world the Seer has to come out of the depths and climb up the mountain. There he can let his voice to be heard.

I would describe the game as a Sokoban with sound control system and bit of stealth. There are four chapters, each has a different setting and introduces new enemies and gameplay elements. As your enemies can't see you, you have to lure them out of your way with your voice. But as they lost their sight their hearing became much more sharp. And they are also better runners than you. You also have to stay clear of spikes and firing guns. There is no penalty for getting caught or dying, if you don't aim for the related achievement of course.

The visuals are… strange, but rather suits the game. I liked the music. Voice acting is good, pretty emotional. Difficulty of the levels is constantly rising, although even some of the later ones were easier. Few of them were on the other hand pretty tedious and a pain in the back. The hardest for me would be the 3rd chapter. After completing the game you can play New Game+ in which you revisit the same locations with enemies from higher chapters, with new layout or completely different levels (just few). Here begins the double challenge.

Biggest problem of this game is the broken achievements. Sadly none of the achievements for chapter 3 are working and it seems like it will stay that way. Anyway, I marked it as completed, I am quite sure I would open them as I have opened all other achievements.

Great old adventure game about three goblins on their quest to save the poor king from claws of an evil sorcerer!

Each one of our trio has different skills so you have to figure out the right goblin for the required action - one can carry items, other can smash them and last one can do magic stuff. As they are rather clumsy it's fun to try everything with them and see them busted. Just don't forget about your health, as each wrong action costs you portion of your life. There is no save, so if you die, you get reloaded to the beginning of the current screen with the health you had when you entered the scene. The screens don't take long so it's not a big problem. After successful completion of the screen you get a code which works as a load, so don't forget to write it down.
The sounds were now more comfortable then before, not so ear tearing. X)

It was pretty nostalgic to revisit it again. When I was little and didn't know a word in English it was much harder. ;)

The torments of our dear king never stops! His young son, prince Buffoon, got kidnapped by devilish Amoniak, who overthrew the king of the neighboring kingdom and began his rule of terror. Our two brave heroes, Fingus and Winkle, decide to save the poor child. Their route won't be easy and they have to combine the intelligence of one with the strength of the other.

There is no longer the life bar so you can safely try with the two goblins anything you would like. It's really fun to watch them in miserable situations. XD You have to cooperate well in this game, a few times you have to hit the exact timing in which to perform some actions. Yeah, I got frustrated one or two times…. I hate that cockroach…

The second game in the series offers yet again great humor and puzzles (some beyond imagination). Graphics are nice, colorful. Noises and sounds are still funny. One thing I don't remember were those cutscenes and voiced characters, they were just doing bloop bou bap boo. It's nicely done though and doesn't break your immersion.

July 2021 report


Summer sale is behind us and I have to say that I have probably gone crazy. I just wanted to complete my series… bought a lot of games on Steam and what’s worse I have bought my FIRST EVER Fanatical bundle… never happening again.

With it I have crossed the secret line of 1.000 games in my library. I have once told myself that I will stop buying games if that happens… I am a realist and I know that I won’t be able to do it, but I will try to keep it as low as possible. I am turning down my presence on SG to prevent myself from entering giveaways… when I am there I still enter some though…
Slightly good thing is that I have over 200 completed games. That brings me some happiness… for a little tiny moment before I realize how many games I have…

Enough of small talks and now to the actual assassinations! Good luck in a new month and enjoy your games!


We have apparently decided to complete only games bought in 2019 or 2021. XD

Our heroine is charmed by her recently met suitor so when he invites her to his castle, she happily agrees. She barely knows him? Who cares, their love is powerful and everlasting for sure. Before spending some Christmasy time together the lover boy has to arrange some things, so he allows her to roam through the castle and search for the secrets. Beware though the castle is in renovation so some places could be off-limits. Is it truly because of the renovation or is he keeping some hideous secrets locked there? Well, it appears that letting your next sacrifice to uncover you devilish plans isn't the brightest idea.

The art is pretty. No voice-acting so you have to pay attention during the cutscenes. I liked the premise. Each time different scenery (he locks the souls of the girls in the pictures he draws, you then enter their dimensions and have to save those girls from their torment), but it's rather shallow. There are a lot of them and later you are quickly done with it. If they concentrated properly on two or three it would offer better immersion. It just got rather repetitive - enter, do minigame, do hidden object scene, move to next.
I didn't like the backtracking, the castle is rather big and you can go anywhere, after saving the girls their pictures are turned inactive at least, and search for another hidden object scene or just to find some missing item you have overlooked. There were moments I didn't know what to do and just went through the rooms again and again. I think that it happened two times that some of the items in the hidden object scenes were in Russian - you had to translate or click on everything to find it. Searching for different items than suggested is becoming a standard I think. Luckily no achievements were limiting you. Also there is no proper journal to hint you on what to do next.

Grim Legends 2: Song of the Dark Swan

Very nice adaptation of a classic fairy tales The Wild Swans by Hans Christian Andersen and The Six Swans by the Brothers Grimm. Big celebrations are held in the Eagle kingdom as the young prince was born. Happiness is clouded by the Queen's mysterious illness. King has summoned you to find a cure for her. After your first check up the whole situation turns to worse as the young prince is kidnapped and the Queen accused of practicing the black magic, which is in Eagle kingdom punishable by death! Not everything is as it seems and you have to uncover the truth hidden in the past.

The art is pretty, lively and full of colors. Puzzles were good, clever, and some of them challenging. There weren't many classic hidden object scenes where you search for a particular item by its name, but instead by shapes you collect fragments of the item you need. This time you aren't forced to play it for a second time, because there is no Mahjong or Domino game instead of hidden object scenes.
There are hidden collectibles to be found and extra chapter open after the completion of the main story.

Also, what surprised me was that there are two characters that will die and no, they won't be resurrected at the end. I think it's the first time I am seeing something like this in a HOG.

Looks like a combination of Thief and Assassin's Creed - you are running over rooftops, jumping from highs, lockpicking and stealing valuables. ;)
Sylvia is a member of an old order of monster hunters, although she doesn't remember much as she has lost her memory. While she and her master, Solomon, are investigating the presence of a demon in the city, valuable and dangerous artifact is stolen from their headquarters. Some time after that supernatural powers are awakened in the city of Lichtenheim. It's certain that their artifact is being used for a dark purpose. Will Sylvia manage to save the city and its citizens from being destroyed? And how are these events connected to her memory loss?

Story is fine, I have just wondered that their super dangerous artifact was protected by just two guards and that the order has apparently only 5 people in? XD Nevermind. It has good action and you are always moving forward. Graphics are really good, darker than the second game in the series. Hidden object scenes were good, varied, but getting it done under 20 seconds is really a pain in the back. Puzzles were mostly fun. One little rant though - there are five mirror puzzles that you have to complete in under 2 minutes for an achievement, I have made all but one during my first run. The last mirror is the hardest of them, logically, but it's unfair. If you don't make it you can play the whole game again as the minigame is almost at the end. Even though I was doing it with a guide for the second time I was pretty nervous that I wouldn't make it in time as it's pretty complicated and I would need to play it again. Luckily I got it right. :)

For achievement hunters - you have to finish the tutorial and to play on expert difficulty. On expert you have no tutorial, so you need to make two playthroughs (first easy then expert) or after playing on expert you start a new game under new name and do just the tutorial (if you play first the expert and then start the game again on easy, you won’t get the tutorial). Luckily you don't need to have all of the achievements under the same profile.

Vivien is visiting her father, when he mysteriously disappears into the thin air. In a moment she learns that her family, Ambrose family, is full of magicians, scientists and most importantly time travelers. When searching for clues of father's whereabouts, she finds a mysterious talking crystal ball and seven magic rings, which then teleports her into the Time Museum. Sadly she collides with the abductor and the rings get lost. She has to visit different time epochs and find family rings which will then help her to track her father. Who is the mysterious abductor and what does he want with the Ambrose family? Travel through time and space to find the ultimate answer.

From the first glance you can tell that it's an older game. It reminds me a lot of old point and click adventures, it has a similar vibe as Atlantis (one of my favorite games by the way) for example. Graphics are older, but full of details and colorful. Character animation offers great laughs as their heads are so strangely moving during speaking. Gameplay wise there are a lot of hidden object scenes with a lot of items in them. Also there was usually some flashing light or something like that which made the searching a little harder. Puzzles were good.
Only complaint I have is for the UI design. I am now familiar with the concept that on the left side you have a menu with a diary and on the right side you have a hint. Here it is swapped so I had to control my urge to click it when quitting the game as I would hit the hint and would lose my achievement. ;)

You can't quite compare it to the newer Artifex Mundi games as it's of course older, more rough and maybe even simpler. But I have a weak spot towards those kinds of games and in the end we had a good time with it.

Crazy Plant Shop

7 of 7 achievements

Such a cute little game. You own a plant shop and you need to satisfy your customers and their varied desires, simple as that. But buying flowers to sell them isn't the right way to earn money, so you have to breed them in your own breeding machine. In a simple but charming way you learn the basics of plant genetics and how dominant and recessive genes work. After that you have to carefully manage your orders as your daily energy for breeding is quite limited. There are also upgrades you can buy for your shop, but be careful with your money as you daily need at least 10 coins for your rent. With the right plants you can even join national flower competition!

Your shop is visited by different casts of customers with their own short stories. They are very nicely written and often bring a smile on your face. Every one of them is also voiced and although you can tell it is rather an indie voice acting, it's fitting and pleasant. Graphic design is very soft, calm and suits the game nicely. Plants are nicely varied, their species are very cute and funny. Would love to have some of the Catcuses or Bunnyons at my home! Music is quiet and corresponds with the old feeling of the early 20th century.

You can complete the game rather quickly. We managed to complete it in two runs under 7 hours. All of the achievements are easily obtainable. Crazy Plant Shop is probably targeted at a younger audience as an educational game, but I have found it very enjoyable even in my not targeted age.

First game ended with a promise of a direct continuation, but it was more like a prequel. Also the story was slightly confusing at the beginning as the main villain is a dangerous witch named Vivian. It got me thinking what possibly happened to our previous heroine that instead of saving the world she turned to the dark side… I think that it wasn't the best idea to use such similar names in the series. Vivien in the first and Vivian in the second. Really, where is some creativity?

Ok, confusion aside. Ester was for her whole life orphaned, but her dreams were haunted by mysterious images. One day she learns from a letter that she belongs to a large wealthy family and with that she also inherits an old mansion in London. When she explores the old ruined place she uncovers secrets about the Ambrose family. With the help of a time traveling device she has to find a way to surpass an awakened witch who threatens the whole world.

This time you will visit only two locations through time traveling, but in different years and your acts in the past can bring fruits in the present. I have enjoyed this aspect, though playing on an advanced difficulty proved to be slightly annoying as you spent most of your time searching all the rooms in all of the different years for new hidden object scenes or some overlooked item. Hidden object scenes were yet again full of items and of a higher difficulty. Puzzles were ok, nothing too hard, although I really hate Color Wheel puzzle, which we have to solve two times… yay!

The UI is still swapped and still brings me confusion. If there wasn't so much backtracking and searching for what to do next I would give it a higher mark.

The circle closed. But it won't be Vivien who will save the future world, it will be Ester! What a twist.

After destroying the crystal and with it the dangerous witch Vivian, Ester can live her life in peace. Not for long as this time she needs to lift a horrible spell from poor witch Vivian, save poor Merlin from being an oak for all eternity and stop a devilish scientist from the future from destroying the world. Pretty complicated.

Gameplay remains the same as in the second game. You have to visit a few locations that are going to change in the time. Graphics are fine, pretty varied (cutscenes mediocre yet again). This time the game didn't suffer from the backtracking problem, I didn't feel so lost as before and always had an idea on what to do next. Puzzles were fine, some hidden object scenes were recycled from earlier games though.

All in all, we had fun with this series. It's older and with a few flaws, but still enjoyable. :)

Betty is away in Europe, already some time has passed since her last message and hints about her whereabouts point towards small secluded Norway village. Our hero Edward Charles Harden, greatly worried about her, sets on an adventure to find her. He is not alone on this quest, a young woman, Lissie, is accompanying him. She is energetic, spontaneous and full of advice and comments no one asked for. ;) She is Edwards opposite.
As they arrive at the village, they are welcomed by empty houses and incoming storm. Even though Edward is invited to stay with one local family, he is rather reluctant to enter their house. Falling darkness, starting rain and pushy Lissie force him inside though. There he finds what he's looking for, proof of Bettys presence! Now he need to wait until the morning to properly search for her.
But the new day brings just more questions and no answers. What happened in the village? Where is everyone? Was Betty even here?

Draugen is a mysterious narrative walking simulator. Graphics are strange, a little blurry, suggesting an artistic piece. Walking around and sightseeing is very pretty, reminding me of Someday you'll return. Soundtrack is beautiful, calm and sets a great atmosphere. Voice acting is excellent and I loved to listen to our main duo. Story is… well, linear. You can walk around, take a rest and draw pictures of your surroundings. Certain places trigger conversations, which can shed some light on events that happened in the village, but they are not mandatory for finishing the story.

I liked the game, there was this eerie feeling, uncertainty of what's really going on there. If you have some experience with similar stories you can predict the outcome a little, which wasn't a letdown as it was implemented nicely and still offered some surprises. What was somewhat disappointing is that you are left in the darkness in the end. You know nothing, John Snow… Gah, I just want to know more of what happened, to the villagers, to Edward, to Lissie… everything is just hinted at, you are given a hypothesis and that's it. The end. For me, unsatisfying.

The end promises that Edward and Lissie will be back and I would love to see that as I have rather enjoyed it, but I am sceptical towards it. There is a prequel comic on Steam coming soon, for two years already. Apparently it was available on the consoles, but not on the PC. Shame really as the story has a great potential for longer series.

Simple puzzles with nice Japanese atmosphere.

350 pieces was a little bit painful for the eyes, but it could be from playing on a laptop with a smaller screen.

Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart

Very good hidden object game with "Pirates of the Caribbean" feeling. Puzzles were not ridiculously hard, but a few have even offered a challenge. Hidden object scenes were nice and without any mistakes or troubles. Story is okay, with few little weak spots, but overall enjoyable.

Graphics are nice, colorful and full of life. Only downgrade are cutscenes which are of horrible quality. Another weak point is forced second playthrough when you aim for 100% achievements as you have to complete all hidden object scenes and you also have to complete all substitute mahjong games which you can't obtain during one playthrough.

Half-Life 2

The Walking Dead: Michonne

2.5/5
3.8 hours
21 of 21 achievements

Short excursion into Walking Dead universe with Michonne as the main protagonist. I am not familiar with the comics or the series so I can't compare storyline, characters and other similarities.

I liked Michonne, she is a badass character. Others are of standard cast with cliche personalities, which is getting disappointing, nothing will surprise you and you can very well say how each of them will act. It can be clearly seen because the game is so short, there is not enough time for some deeper development and you can't properly connect to anyone besides Michonne. Storytelling is the same as with other games from Telltale, this time though it feels even weaker as the choices you make are unimportant. Not that I think it's done in any different way with Clementine games, but as they are longer they offer better complexity after all. Also I am not particularly fond of the route the game forces you into, if I could I would choose a completely different way.
I have enjoyed it, but I wouldn't mind if it was a little bit longer and presented a more captivating story (the beginning was good, different setting then in the other two games, but then it's just the same good old song).

Graphics are again in a comic design and truly suit the game. Music is good. As the servers were put down the community choices aren't showing anymore, you have to download a file which the game no longer generates and voila, it works again! Process described on the forum.

Good luck in a new month and enjoy your games!

4.5/5

Different addition to the Heroes of Might and Magic series. This time you have a strategy RPG mixed with puzzles and match 3 battles. And all of it works perfectly. Although the gameplay is in theory still the same = repetitive, it's actually rather addictive and variable as the battles are changing, developing and can get pretty challenging. Diversion to the main story lines are bounty quests, puzzle challenges and artifacts scattered around. Also you can skip random fight encounters if you don't want to waste time with small fishes, but they are good sport to get your units leveled up.

Story will put you in the shoes of five heroes (Anwen, Godric, Fiona, Aidan and Nadia) and their sidekicks as they struggle to save the world from destruction. This way you will play with every faction - elves, humans, undead, demons and wizards; so you can nicely enjoy the diverse tactics the different armies offer.

Story is okay, nothing too surprising. Graphics are very nice, suiting the younger heroes. Fights are fun and quite enjoyable.
Weakest point is the last campaign (wizards), it doesn't offer any bounties or puzzles, it's quite rushed and Nadia is an unappealing heroine. Also, there can be some problems with optimizing, changing the compatibility to Win7 helped. Multiplayer was supposed to get shut down at the 1st June, but it will stay alive… for now at least, bear it in mind if you aim for 100%.

I wouldn't mind seeing some similar addition to the HoMM series again, be it prequel, sequel or with some different heroes.

The Fog: Trap for Moths

1/5
4.0 hours
no achievements

Mother and her daughter are enjoying a road trip together when their car gets sabotaged and they crash (if the mother would drive more carefully and slowly in the rain (!) their car wouldn't end up in the forest...). As mother regains consciousness she realizes that her daughter is gone and mysterious fog is slowly spreading around. Can a mother find her daughter sooner than something horrible happens to her? And what else will she uncover in the fog?

Oh well, a lot of mothers and daughters here…

Mediocre HOG. No voice acting so the cutscenes felt somewhat hollow. Sometimes you search for completely different items in the hidden object scenes. Lots of backtracking. Few times it wasn't clear what to do next. Story is… weak, not very captivating. There is apparently game breaking bug, which we were lucky to miss though. :P

Lost Civilization

2.5/5
3.6 hours
no achievements

Playing this I had terrible Déjà vu. Exactly the same pictures, same lines… I was so sure that I had already played it… and yes, I did. But not this game.

Lost Civilization is a HOG remake of a classic adventure game NiBiRu: Age of Secrets, with a slightly different approach - main characters got swapped and you are playing as a woman. But you will see the same scenes (graphically remade to suit the HOG genre better), characters and lines, even some of the puzzles are the same.
I am not sure if it's because I know the original game, but the story feels rushed and a little inconsistent. Also the voice acting is pretty strange - one line is voiced, the other two not and so on. All in all it wasn't so bad.

During May I managed to beat first Mass Effect and almost got to the end of the second. Letting some of the achievements for my soulmate to obtain in the second run. ;)

I am a big fan of the series, so I am truly enjoying it. First game really deserved the improvement in the textures, also squadmates got rather clever and can manage pretty well without me. Sometimes there is nothing left to shoot at for me. XD
There are few slight mishaps, nothing serious, mostly laughable matters.



Nothing new as I can't be adding more of Mass Effect... I have almost all of the squad now. I tried to take same shots as before so you can compare them to those I took from the orginal games (modded).

April 2021 report


Not that many games played during April. Played Shadow Tactic a lot and that’s basically it.

To keep my game libraries neat and organized I have also made separate tables for Uplay and Origin, feel free to check it out.

You can find all three tables for GoG, Uplay and Origin on my profile with corresponding progress bars. I have also added a Steam progress bar for better comparison. Not sure yet how often it will be actualized.

Enough of small talks and now to the actual assassinations! Good luck in a new month and enjoy your games!

Absolutely amazing game! One of my favorites!

I am not really in the mood to write something more, so I will just say that I love this game. Great story and characters, amazing soundtrack and graphics!!!
My playtime counts for three playthroughs - first one, second to obtain badges, third for hardcore run. Some of the badges were paint to get, but I have enjoyed pushing my limits!

Can’t wait for the new standalone chapter about Aiko! Hope to see one for every character one day.

Cooking Academy Fire and Knives

3/5
18.7 hours
no achievements

It's a compilation of three games in which you continuously master your cooking skills. You have set of restaurants with different recipes, first you learn the process of preparing the food, after you gain enough stars you can take exams - you are not making the whole meal again, just one specific part from the preparation process. Good thing is that even in exams you are still shown how to make the food, so you don't have to completely memorize it.
You can see the progress in the series, be it in graphics or mechanics. Each meal also has a short intro about its history.

We have enjoyed these cooking lessons, mastering some recipes was a true challenge. ;) It was suitable for short playing times when you don't want to think much.

My Jigsaw Adventures - A Lost Story

4/5
11.0 hours
32 of 32 achievements

Next game in My Jigsaw Adventures series with new story that unfolds with each puzzle. As with the first game, the pictures are truly beautiful (you can download them again) and music is very pleasant, creating a nice atmosphere. It's great game to relax after long day.

You can customize the game to your liking with a background picture / color, add a grid, select where your puzzle pieces are stocked, play in challenge mode… You can pick a mosaic, traditional or arrow shape (love this one). In the first game the biggest puzzle had 220 pieces, now you can select a puzzle with 500 and even 1000 pieces. For me it's too much, but luckily no achievement is tied to them, so you are not forced to suffer. ;)

In addition to story mode you will open special puzzles which are smaller but have twists to them. Picture is in black and white, upside down or you have a time limit to solve the puzzle and more.

I have really enjoyed both the standard game and the special puzzles. Will keep my eyes on the series for sure.

No longer on Steam, but you can find it under shorter name: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1096950/Psycho_Train/.

It's an okay hidden object game, sometimes it wasn't very clear on what to do next, but I didn't got stuck for too long. Game is linear with small independent locations. Story follows mother searching for her daughter in twisted space of mad railman. You and your daughter aren't his only victims so you will encounter some of them and help them (somewhat). Have to say that the disturbing feeling was nicely done, some of the graphics were little unsettling.

The ending is vague and I am not sure how exactly it ended.

I have three Assassins games on Steam, but I plan to play them on Uplay. So once I am done with them, I will mark them accordingly in the Steam backlog. Also seems like Uplay doesn’t show any playtime, so I will try to mark it when I will be playing from now on.

February / March 2021 report


Played a lot of different games these two months. Apart from my usual challenges, we picked some already beaten games and completed them. I am happy with the progress on them. Also, skipped next Play or Pay as I have many games selected which pile up, so I want to work on them a little (some got selected twice already). And Mass Effect is coming out in May and I will sink all my time into it and it wouldn’t be fair of me to ask for it to be picked or me ignoring other picks because of it. Here I just hope to come back next quarter, it all depends on how many games I can play.

Played some games on GOG too. Caesar III, Pharaon&Cleopatra and Eschalon. I would like to complete Mass Effect: Andromeda before playing the Legendary Edition in May too.

I have created table of my GOG games and divided them so I can keep better track of how I play them. Feel free to check it here in my separate post.

Enough of small talks and now to the actual assassinations! Good luck in a new month and enjoy your games!

It's simple.

You are on the highest floor of an expensive hotel when the world turns upside down. To have some chance for survival you have to get out. All it requires is to go through 100 floors.

Now the hard side.

Each step costs you 1 hunger point, so you better search other hotel rooms for some food or things that can be turned into food. Beware the ripped ones or you want to get sick? You have nothing else to eat? Hard choice then, eat it and risk losing some health points or slowly starve to death (no food means -1 point of health each step).
What about those monsters in the rooms? Well, you can run away from them… if they let you. What about the monsters blocking your way on the stairs? Hm, is the elevator functioning? If you are lucky, you can go around them, if you are unlucky, you have to fight them. Again, it would be wise to search the rooms for any items that can be used as weapons or turned into weapons in your president suite. Don't get fooled by those weak monsters at the beginning, bring some serious stuff with you to the lower floors.
You got hurt in the fight? Quickly, use medkit, pills, bandages… anything! You have nothing? Oh my… go into your room to sleep then. And pray that your doors are secure enough to protect you from uninvited visitors… they can eat your food, steal your best weapon, destroy random items, cause that you lose more health than you gain….

You are still alive?
Just 10 floors to the main entrance?
Wanna tell me of the horrors you have seen? No.. okay, I understand. Some serious stuff going on here. Okay then, good luck.
Just… just be careful that the RNG God doesn't kick your right between your eyes.

Oh well, who am I fooling around. It will happen. More than once.
Be prepared.


Great game. I have really enjoyed it, although it can be pretty frustrating, especially when you are going for the hardcore run (see my screenshots). But I have never rage quitted and still pushed for more. There are a lot of things that you can uncover. I am still not sure what is the truth here. Also the modes and perks you open offer great replayability!

An excellent game in all of its aspects! It has beautiful graphics, charming soundtrack, great captivating story, well written characters. Great combat that didn't felt too grindy even on expert difficulty.

I have enjoyed every minute of the game! Just one tiny little complaint, sometimes I have found the main heroine a little bit childish and I didn't agree with some of her opinions. But that's all. :)

My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.

~~Gladiator (2000, Ridley Scott)


I love that movie. And I love this game! It has an amazing atmosphere, the ancient Rome is dripping from everything in the game. Great graphics and fitting music helps a lot in this. Intense fights offer great challenge and reward you with awesome executions! It's a joy, believe me.
Story is simple and linear, but that's how it should be. Everything else would distract you from your ultimate goal - your revenge, oh and saving Rome of course. Marius is a great character, true born hero and general. Others are also interesting! Commodus is such a jerk, argh, I hate him in the Colosseum! (That's a good point.)

There are three kinds of collectibles to be found, which offer insight on the characters and history facts. And even though the game is linear, some of those items are hidden pretty well! Good thing is, that you can see missing items, so you can then replay just that part of the story.

Fights are simple. You have a sword, shield and pilum at your disposal. You can also fill your focus meter which then lets you use extra helpful skills. But you have to be vigilant and not rush to the fight as the right timing is the key to your success. Truth is that you will best learn this when doing the Legendary run and fighting the Commodus in the arena. Well, the whole Legendary difficulty requires every bit of your concentration. But it's great fun and I have felt amazing after each won battle!
Checkpoints are great as there are a lot of them, really a lot of them! So you never redo some large segments of the story and you never became frustrated by the loss.

After completing the game through and through, you can then compete in the Colosseum!!! It's a multiplayer part of the game. But! Interesting thing is, there are maps that you can do solo! Yay. So I have opened some of the achievements and I feel pretty proud for some of the runs. Also I am tempted to ask one friend to play it with me, because I really like this game, but I have never played multiplayer with someone… I am a little bit shy. X)

Anyway, it's an amazing game, worth every bit of your money! Can't recommend it enough!

LUXOR: 5th Passage

1/5
14.5 hours

Not my type of game at all.
This time I have played on easy difficulty to not stress myself much with it… didn't work out the way I wanted.
I have noticed that there were somewhat three types of difficulty through the game. First is main, easy difficulty slightly rising up. Second, on people choice stages high rise up in difficulty in comparison to normal stages. And then there was one stage which was extremely slow due to wrong code setting, only that one stage took around 40 minutes to go through… and it repeated. That was really painful. Very very much. You can't even quit, because it will only reset your progress and you have to make the stage from the beginning (Luxor HD remembered where you ended). I have considered changing the difficulty to medium as this bug was only on easy, but I wasn't sure if I would need to play it whole from the start… so I just put up with the ordeal.
Visuals and music are okay, but get quickly repetitive. Different music is only in People choice stages. Some of the bonuses you can use are great (like scorpion), some of them are useless (Spike Ball, pretty much Black Hole etc.). In game achievements are crazy and can't imagine opening them all. Lucky that they are not on Steam.

Replayed this for the few missing achievements and two additional DLCs which added new story, environment, enemies, equipment, dungeoneers and rune system.
Still very funny and enjoyable, even on complete second playthrough.

Small Town Terrors: Livingston

2/5
3.2 hours
no achievements

First game in the series "Small Town Terrors" - young family is passing through Livingston city when they get into car accident. Mother is injured and when she wakes up in the hospital her husband and daughter are nowhere to be seen, also the city is strangely deserted, filled with weird noise and creatures. What’s going on? That’s up to you to find out!

It has somewhat outdated visuals, but at the same time it offers a good atmosphere of a B-rated Zombie movies. Story is told through newspaper articles and messages from the city residents, still it felt a little bit weak in some moments. No voice acting, although sometimes it's actually a better choice. Puzzles and hidden object scenes were okay and I have liked the principle of health limit for progression in the story. The huge backtracking required throughout the game decreases the overall rating. Also there were situations where it wasn't clear on what to do or I was trying to make some action sooner than it was demanded so I got confused. Only ingame achievements.
Game is short, but for a quick evening playtime it's suitable.

Small Town Terrors Pilgrim's Hook Collector's Edition

3/5

no achievements

Second game in the series "Small Town Terrors" - Vera is going back to her birthplace after disturbing call from her twin brother, when she arrives on the island dark secrets begin to uncover. The fate of the island and it's few inhabitants is now in her hands.

Overall improvement to the first game. Better graphics and even voice acting. Story is strange, somewhat interesting, but in the end there are things unanswered. Nice variation of puzzles and hidden object scenes. As you progress through the story the whole area remains open, sometimes you go way back to find items or to solve puzzles. At least map teleports you this time and when playing on easy difficulty you can see where some interaction is required. There are hidden collectibles to be found and after the completion of the main story you can access bonus chapter and also bonus hidden game. Achievements are only in game, but easy to get.

Small Town Terrors: Galdor's Bluff Collector's Edition

4/5
4.1 hours
no achievements

Last game in the series "Small Town Terrors" (my version is no longer on Steam, but apparently it’s getting released again so you can see the store page) - you are invited to the performance of Thurman the Magnificent as he suspects a sabotage will happen. Indeed, his performance turns to a horrible conclusion. Your investigation will be shrouded in magic and illusion, you have to stay vigilant as the truth is hidden right before your eyes.

The Prestige

Nice graphics, music and good voice acting. Varied puzzles and hidden object scenes. Story is really interesting with good twists. Again hidden collectibles to be found, bonus chapter after the end of the main story and solitaire games (you can switch hidden object scenes to it). Achievements are only in game, but they can be easily obtained. Even the one where you have to play one successful game of solitaire (you can do it from the bonus menu, not necessarily instead of the HOG).

I consider it the best game from the trilogy.

Half-Life 2

Voodoo Garden

3/5
15.4 hours
33 of 33 achievements

In this clicker game you take care of a Voodoo garden. You have to fill it with different kinds of trees, bushes and flowers. You will have to guard your crops carefully as hungry little bats will try to steal from you and only you can drive them off. Your garden will be also populated by different kinds of animals - like snakes, lizards, frogs. You need to collect them for resources too. Ceremonial totems will help you to lure more of them to your garden. Your helpers are ghosts from animals that you have to sacrifice first - chicken, rabbit, pig and turtle. They gather the fruit, leaves, nuts etc. for you and also make it grow quicker.

As you collect the ingredients you are automatically creating Voodoo items - potions and dolls. Each level up gives you a different item for your garden or new recipe. You have to set preference for the potions created to make the new better one which also brings more cash. With the money you generate you can then level up every single thing in your garden, that way you will raise the whole efficiency. Higher levels are pretty expensive. Crocodile and skull rising from the water at times offer little help with funds, you have to be quick though as they don't stay there for long.

Graphics are very cute, music fine (even though I think it's only one track). It's a nice game to play when you want to chill out. My biggest complaint is that you have to click for yourself a lot. Your ghosts collect only crops from plants and they are rather slow. You have to catch all of the animals by yourself, as their parts are needed for more expensive Voodoo products. Also they are not collecting when the game is closed, this is done better in Plantera where you raise a certain amount of cash. You have to work hard to gain 30 levels.

911 Operator

3.5/5
22.7 hours
18 of 18 achievements

In 911 you take up a role of an emergency operator, on your shifts you have to solve the incoming calls and deal with any reports showing up on your screen. Sounds easy? You can be sure that it will get pretty hectic.

In story mode you go through different cities which have different main "cases" to them. I really liked that, as it offered a diversion from the same cases. You have at your disposal police, firemen and medic units. Different vehicles require different size of squads, so you have to plan your orders as you can't send one policeman on a bicycle to solve the bank robbery. You can equip your squads with items that raise their stats, each person can have only two of them and some are locked to their specific occupation.

You can play in any city you want (if the system can find its map), so that's nice. But after you play through the story mode, it's all the same - I have played this first and then the "Single city run" and it was pretty long for my taste. Also, I was quite sad that I didn't raise enough funds to buy that helicopter! There were always more important things to acquire. ;)

Respect to all who do this hard work, as I wouldn't be able to do it. There were cases that I have chosen bad advice which then led to worse outcome, even someone's death.

Half-Life 2

Leviathan: The Last Day of the Decade

2/5
14.4 hours
17 of 17 achievements

I am torn apart on this one. There were some interesting moments, but as a whole it doesn't work out much for me. Also, it reminded me a lot of Solstice, another visual novel with similar graphics. For a moment I thought it's from the same creators, but it's not.
Both these experiences just proves that these kind of visual novels aren't up my taste.

The lore of the world is interesting. Graphics are… well, for me it's strange. I like the background pictures more than the sprites, as they are very realistic. Too much for me. Also, same as with Solstice, their mouths are moving and emotions change rapidly as they talk, but it's not voiced. You have to pick what you will follow - grimaces or text first?

There are five main characters you will interact with, each one of them has their own motives and problems, as you progress you get to uncover them. Serious subjects are mentioned, but all are just barely touched and their potential will not be fulfilled. Which is a shame.
Character development doesn't make sense sometimes and one particular moment I have found hard to believe. Consistency of the story also isn't the best one, as some of the choices you make are ignored and later the game interprets completely different one. That's unfair. Don't offer choices if you don't plan to implement them further in the story. End seemed to be rather rushed and maybe even incomplete.
(Also, one of the girls is in game named Darina, on the card is her name Ruth… that confused me a little when I was searching in guide for some answers on this character - when you check videos on youtube you will find both variants).

Whole game consists of five chapters, second and third were best I would say. There is some kind of romance, but you don't have the last word in this, you are just an observer. As an addition to a simple visual novel gameplay you have an adventure element of collecting items and combining them. There are also action parts which work nicely. But even if all of this charmed me, even if you can see all the work behind it (they made a huge work on it, no doubts!), I just have not enjoyed it. The story didn't pull me inside enough.

More games of the same universe were planned, but looks like nothing will come out of it. Which is partly sad, as the lore, story and whole game had some potential.

December 2020 / January 2021 report

So it’s behind us. Have to say that December turned into a productive month, although it didn’t look like it at the beginning. :)
January turned to be a month of completion of the leftovers, but some other games got played too. Also we are now playing Van Helsing in coop and it’s a huge time sink. ;)

We have completed / beaten a lot of games this year (76 total - here you can see some of my stats), but also acquired much more of them… I wanted to hold new games under 100, failed, at least it wasn’t more than in 2019. So this “challenge” still stays.

Maybe I have said that last year, but we are concentrating mostly on Steam games. Partly because it’s my largest and my main library, but also because I participate in many challenges… but it frustrates me as I am not working on my GoG, Origin or Uplay games… seems as if I can’t play games if I am not challenged for them.

Also, after playing visual novel after a long time, I have realized I actually miss them. So we would like to play at least one a month… we will start with those unfinished though. And not all of them are on Steam, so it won’t help my Steam progress (again, concentrating on it), but my game library will be happy… I think.

One last note, you can find my reviews on Steam if you’d like to mark them as helpful. ;)

Enough of small talks and now to the actual assassinations! Good luck in a new month and enjoy your games!

This is simply art. Stunning in all of its aspects.

Beautiful visuals and captivating soundtrack will fill your soul with a lot of emotions, be it sadness, anger, fear or happiness. Instead of words the game uses metaphors and assimilations for its storytelling and it's sufficient. Words would maybe prove as a disturbing element, like this you have to concentrate on the changes in the music, color, your movement… like this you can immerse yourself in the game.

Gameplay wise it reminded me little of Degrees of Separation, you gain new abilities in each of the worlds which are then used to overcome the obstacles. Puzzles are nice, some of them a little challenging. Although the game is linear the world itself is filled with many interactive elements which nicely complement the whole atmosphere. I just love everything about Gris. Can't recommend it enough.


Little Koa is growing up on a small island in the middle of Mara. She is alone now, tending to her island but dreaming about exploring the whole world and becoming a pirate one day! When she finds a strange little creature on the beach her days of loneliness are over. With her new friend, Napopo, she set sails to the vast Mara seas. Koa will then meet different kinds of people with their own dreams, problems or old pains and although she is only a kid, she will do everything in her power to help them.

Summer in Mara is a farming simulator game where you have your own island to take care of. As you progress in the story you will be able to build various structures on it - for example decorations or animal enclosures; cultivate many kinds of vegetables and fruits or plant new species of trees or shrubs. There is a lot you can do in Mara - you can harvest crops, create new items for sale or for manufacturing, go fishing or diving, pick up trash, cook various dishes or you can pat animals. :) I have very much enjoyed developing my island, it's nice to see it grow (not in terms of size).
Exploration is another important part of the game, you can find a lot of new things on your travels (people really throw interesting stuff to the ocean). Also it's a great boost to your income as you can harvest wild crops and then sell it for profit without additional spend.

Story is simple but really nice. It's about growing up, going after your own dreams and trying to be a good person, doing the right things and helping others around you too. Most of the characters are nicely written, although there could have been more varied interaction with them (especially after completing their quests). Quests are of “fetching type” when you do deliveries for them or they send you somewhere. I don’t really mind, as the idea of the game is about Koa helping others… and I usually pick quests and do something different and after I feel like it I deliver it, but I can understand why some of the players are bored by it. Not me though.

I like the graphics, so colorful and cheerful (with a few exceptions) even though there are some shortcomings (rainy day without a rain or so). Soundtrack is very good, characters have their own themes and I visited some of them regularly just to listen to it (like Aquila, Edogan, Fink). I have also liked changing outfits of little Koa, would love to have some of the backpacks! :)

I have truly enjoyed my time in Mara. Yeah, it has some rough edges and you can stump on some bugs (not working achievements were deleted some time ago). Ending was rather rushed and the main villain didn't get proper space, you know the anticipation for meeting up with him is building up and then it's over… truth is I was a little disappointed. City life doesn't change with day cycles (except for important characters), there are still the same people, they stand in the same spots, only animals are moving around… this could have been done in a better way. Also not all of the kickstarter stretch goals were added yet (taking photos, windsurfing, animal breeding…). After getting all you can for your island, completing your fetch quests, there is nothing to do… of course you can still tend to your island, it's very relaxing, but you were already doing it for some time… I think that there is a great potential to still develop the game, add new crops, new animals for your island, new buildings and so on. If not officially then through the mods. For now it seems like the developers are concentrating on different goals in their career, but well, who knows. I still very much recommend this game, it was a very pleasant experience.

Oh, and as you will explore the Mara you can find little crabs with messages from the backers. They are filled with love, hope, happiness… that also add a nice feeling to the game.


This is super amazing chibi game! :D

Old evil is once more threatening the peace of the whole world. Ancient legends speak about a hero rising up from common folk to fight against it. Can all of it be true? Well, only one way to know for sure. Take a hold of your sword, choose your path and begin your adventure!

So, as the name suggests you are playing as a Chibi knight, which is pretty adorable to be honest. You are a cute little ball wrapped up in an armor! As you level up, your armor and sword change their appearance. You can even lock your outfit to your liking - you will level up normally, but won't change the look which is neat but I have enjoyed my progress.
Gameplay wise it's a hack and slash with platformer sequences, I would say. You have basic and special attacks, you can also learn some skills like dash, double jump… Little twist comes with a special attack - when you are Beastmaster you can command beasts, when you become Sorcerer you can select from four spells. Your route is decided after the Prolouge. Game warns you about progressing forward, that you won't be able to come back. So it's best to complete all of the quests in your home village before moving out.
The game is short, it has great pace and you will hardly get stuck. This is great actually as you can't get all of the achievements in one playthrough. Some of them are rather hard (without dying, without some skills…), should the game be longer it would get really frustrating, like this it was great fun! Two routes also offer nice replayability, with different characters, quests, enemies in the middle part of the game. Truth is that the end part is the same but different skills offer different kinds of experience. Some of the fights can be challenging, for a boss fight you have to come up with tactics not just rush them over. Luckily there is no penalty for dying so you can try as many times as you need (except when aiming for the one particular achievement).

The graphics are very cute and the music is good, fitting the game very well. The game was apparently made by father & daughter duo (she even voiced Chibi Knight) and it has a great feeling. It's filled with jokes and references on popular culture, we had some good laughs. If you will take for what it is - cute short funny game, filled with action, you will for sure enjoy it. "Boo ya!"

I love this game!

This is a compilation of three standalone games, as I understand it there were made some changes so it's not completely same as shown in The Final Cut. I have not played these before so I can't really compare with them, but I would say that the third part was a bit lacking. Second part is filled with action, you can't stop for a moment as there is always what to do. And after that it gets somewhat… dry. Overall experience was superb though. ;)

The gameplay is addictive, fast paced and overall super fun. You have many options to set the game to your liking with many skills, perks, gear and even many levels of difficulty settings. Locations are nicely varied and really big. Also there is a lot of hidden stuff to be found, secrets to uncover. The ever present little references to dozens other games and movies make you chuckle every now and then. And there is really a lot of them!!

The mysterious, sometimes creepy atmosphere is greatly built up by perfectly fitting dubbing and a very nice soundtrack. Characters are very likable and the main duo, Lady Katarina and Van Helsing, are just awesome in their interaction, they have great chemistry between them!

We are now playing it in co-op on higher difficulty and it's still the same great fun as before, maybe even better. ;)


This is free otome visual novel which can put many other paid games into its pocket. I was rather surprised by its quality… in art, writing, music… I have truly enjoyed my time with it. After completing the game, we have decided to buy the artbook to show our support to the developers because they made really great work. Also sequel came out recently, which we will grab for sure. ;)

Our known and favorite fairytales are turned into wicked curses that are cast upon those who need to change. Our main heroine, an "Ice Princess", is one of the cursed. In one moment her world turns upside down and she finds herself on the streets in ragged clothes, no one remembering her being the princess. If she wants to go back to the palace, she needs to perform three good deeds. With no inkling how to do that she has to co-operate with others, maybe helping them to break the curse will also help her. First reluctant in the work, she begins to change, her heart melting.

There are five love interests to pursue, one being the true route. None of them is a weak point as all of the guys are interesting and enjoyable (which is rather surprising as usually only two or three are interesting enough for me). I have even liked our main heroine (I usually hate them) and I can understand some of her worries, motives. Story is captivating, pushing you forward, it's really nicely written. There are no typos or mistakes that would break the immersion (at least not that I spotted any).

I have only two rebukes. In one of the routes I would change the good ending, because it wasn't right how they solved it. ;) Other is that one of the support characters didn't get his own route (as was planned), I would love to know more about him.



Half-Life 2

Slime Rancher

5/5
251.8 hours
57 of 57 achievements

So, after 230 hours in, I have decided that it's a time to complete the last few achievements. :)
We have mostly played through the Rush Challenge mode and it was fun to play little bit differently. You don't have time to play around, instead you have to hunt for the plorts to make money! As the saying goes - practice makes perfect, I was able to get the gold medal on my third try. It's a challange and you also need a little bit of luck.

We still play it from time to time as the developers are active and add some new content. It's a great, beautiful game that will make you smile. You can read more in my short review here.

Half-Life 2

Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek

2/5
9.1 hours
11 of 11 achievements

We have not enjoyed this one much, there is a lot of backtracking and the hidden object scenes were sometimes misleading. Puzzles were of the easier sort.
Nice aspect was the detective work, where you collect clues and evidence and from them you build up the case.

Half-Life 2

Enigmatis 2: The Mists of Ravenwood

4/5
8.9 hours
36 of 36 achievements

Straight continuation to the first Enigmatis game. It has very high score on Steam, which I found hard to believe after the first game, but it's rather well deserved.
Visuals are very nice and I liked the story setting more than in the first game, even though there are still some weak points. I liked the puzzles, nothing too hard and some of them were really good! Hidden object scenes were also better, although getting one done under 1 minute proved to be a challenge (and cost me another playthrough).
As a detective, you have to do your work again and gather clues and evidence, which is fun and spice up the gameplay a little.

This game is a lot more interactive than its predecessor, there is a lot you can click on and even two types of collectibles to be found. Mysterious prisoner will share old tale with you and even though it's a part of the story, it's interesting and enjoyable.
Only one thing bothered me. You can skip the hidden object scenes with a Pair-matching mini game. To get all the achievements you have to do at least two whole runs, because you have to do all hidden object scenes and all pair-matching games… I really don't understand why they do that in these kinds of games. There is nothing new for you to see and even if I have enjoyed the story I don't have to see it again right away… but other than that it's a quite enjoyable HOG.

Half-Life 2

Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride

4/5
8.2 hours
24 of 24 achievements

Another nice and enjoyable HOG, although I am bigger fan of the bad guy here than the good ones. :P
It is very colorful and lively. Puzzles and hidden object scenes are good. There were few situations when I got lost and it took me a moment to realize what I am supposed to do exactly, I was probably thinking too much ahead. Also you get a little cute kitty as your helper.

And again, you need to do all hidden object scenes and then domino games instead of it to open all of the achievements…

Half-Life 2

Detention

5/5
5.0 hours
8 of 8 achievements

Story of Detention is set in fictitious Taiwan, currently under martial law. In a secluded high school is issued a typhoon warning, when two students find themselves all alone there, unable to leave. With the storm coming closer the reality begins to change and dreams, nightmares, memories they all get twisted together. The journey to the bottom of the truth will be painful and disturbing.

The atmosphere of the game is very dark, heavy and scary (thanks to Taiwanese/Eastern cultural references). The visuals and music makes it even more unsettling. The story, the conclusion… it's sad, very sad.

Detention is a great point and click adventure where you explore and solve intriguing puzzles. It can be confusing at some moments, but the story just pushes you forwards, you can't hide from the truth.
To see what horrids can happen… to know that some of these horrids happened somewhere in our history… Detention will fill you with many things to think about.

Half-Life 2

Discovery! A Seek & Find Adventure

3/5
3.2 hours
no achievements

Actually quite enjoyable hidden object game, but truth is that we have played it in two so when you are alone it can get a bit overwhelming and tedious after a while.
There in no story per se, you are a contestant in an international find-and-seek game and you have to overcome your rivals in different countries to reach for the main prize. After that you can challenge up previous main winners and become the ultimate world star!

It's basically one hidden object scene after another (in three different search modes) with few mini games between it. Some of the items are almost blending with the background picture making them very hard to find… although you can use a hint without any penalty. Also the graphic was of a little low quality. The music was rather good, catchy.

It was a nice change to story HOGs we played lately, but can't imagine playing only this type all the time.

Half-Life 2

Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island

2.5/5
8.0 hours
no achievements

Sadly this is an example how a good point and click adventure game shouldn't look like.
Story could be even interesting… three different characters - Vooju Priest, fatty pirate cook and pirate lady captain; forced to somewhat work together to save the world from Vooju Witch and an old evil sleeping deep inside a volcano. Game is divided between our heroes - you can switch between them freely when they still have something to do, they can even give advice to each other on how to proceed in a particular situation although I have found this a little bit lacking. You spent half of the time as ghosts with limited skills and possibilities which can be nicely seen on the inventory system - you don't have everything on you, the hero will just note it for future references so you don't go around with large boulder or something like that (remember Simon and his hat? ;) ).

All of this sounds all right, now to the negative points. When you click on items you get description / comment on it from the characters, that's fine, pretty normal in adventures. Sadly you can't skip them. So, when you are thinking what to do next (happens a lot) and you examine the items you can work with you have to listen to all of the lines again. Some of them were rather long and after a while it turns to be annoying. Moving between screens is delayed by black screen each time you go somewhere… not that I can't wait, but it disturbs the immersion of the situation. There are subtitles 'in game', but not during the cutscenes which was a little troublesome as I am not native English speaker and some of the characters speak with strong accents so I had a problem with keeping up with them and again it disturbs the immersion. Graphic is okay, I am just a bigger fan of 2D or pixel graphics I think.
Story seemed to be a little bit rushed and the ending was a rather disappointing one as there wasn't any real conclusion to it. There were plans for sequel which were not realized, only some spin-off.

Some moments of the game are enjoyable, with good jokes and many referrals on popular culture. But the overall experience was sadly rather boring.

During January I have managed to beat two more games - 911 and Ryse. Both of them are very good, but I aim for completion (in Ryse getting all the achievements I can) so I will write my reviews after I am done with them.

Added Koa from Summer in Mara.
