[Games] November Games Summary!

, by 雨夜 [アマヤ]

Disclaimer: This post is purely my own and does not represent the opinions of any parties/companies mentioned.

So here's my summary of games that I've played throughout November. 

It's still school term, so games are of a shorter duration, like hidden object games (HOG). There's enough fun in there to keep you satisfied with breaks from studying (:

I also have my fair share of wrong game choices, so you will see that the time taken is unknown because I gave up on the game halfway xD




On to the games!



Gardenscapes: Mansion Makeover

Played on: HP Games/Wild Tangent 
Time taken to finish game (excluding breaks): ~3 hours 
Comments:
YAY! Sequel to the original Gardenscapes, where you find hidden objects in various places in the house to hold yard sales and revive the debilitating garden, this time you find objects to sell, in order to re-furnish the house!


Sister's Secrecy: Arcanum Bloodlines Premium Edition

Played on: HP Games/Wild Tangent  
Time taken to finish game (excluding breaks): ~3.5 hours 
Comments:
The graphics and musical score were good. The plot has its dubious areas (your sister who is crazy gets hauled off and turns out whatever she says is true?). Some backgrounds are a little dark, so it takes a while to find things. But there's very little word play on the same word, so it makes things a little easier too.


The Chronicles of Emerland Solitaire

Played on: HP Games/Wild Tangent
Time taken to finish game (excluding breaks): Never finished
Comments:
This was so boring. The hidden object segments were pretty easy. The game is easy to understand, but it is super hard to perfect every single level!! I kept having remaining cards and having to repeat levels 4 -5 times just to pass (have < 4 cards remaining). I gave up on the game because it got too repetitive to play in one sitting.



Nancy Drew Dossier: Resorting to Danger

Played on: Big Fish Games
Time taken to finish game (excluding breaks): 2 hours
Comments:
The dossier series are a much shorter, easier to play version of the original Nancy Drew games. The title is the second game in the dossier series, the first being Lights, Camera, Curses. Taking on the mystery storyline, the game play involves less moving around the map, and more hidden object and pairing objects together to achieve targets. They do keep the conversations simple, with no redundant topics. Though I prefer the full games, the dossiers are good enough for an hour or two ((:
