Ratings and Reviews
Art Extremely Well Done
The game itself is the most beautifully crafted I’ve ever played. The art and animation is flawlessly beautiful and sceneries breathtaking. The stories are romantic and somewhat nostalgic. The game requires patience because you are guaranteed to run into dead ends multiple times. Also if you leave the game midway through a chapter, you have to start from the beginning of that chapter and each chapter is long; it takes about 1/2 hour to complete each chapter on the average, so imagine you’re on the last search for an item and you get frustrated because can’t find an item and it’s 3 am and you have school or work at 8. You have to leave the game. Guess what? You have to start over next time. But the 2nd time around isn’t so bad because you already know where the items are (if you remember). Anyway, I did enjoy the game very well. Definitely recommend it.
A premium experience for free
This game is a true gem for point and click adventures, it immerses the player with its atmospheric music, lush graphics and flawless dialogue design,the game is ad free and in game purchases free which is surprisingly refreshing and gives a premium touch to it, the dialogue is well written, the voice acting is realistic and filled with emotions all spoken in native Chinese language which immerses you even more into its Chinese mythos and lore deep storyline, as the game progresses also the relationship between the two main protagonists Yixiu and moyan as they go from one painting to another their bond increases which takes you through a ride of emotions, over all Ink,Mountains and mystery Puts the developer net ease on my good side for all the health business practices shown in this game, I am excited to see other upcoming games from this developer which I hope is another premium quality game that I would recommend.
I do not leave game reviews. Ever. But I thought this one deserved at least that. This was a beautiful, well-thought out game. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I wish it would have been a little bit longer, but I knew from the beginning with how in-depth & all the little details that were put into the background & world, that the game would be a little shorter. I don’t mind. The game was fun & the graphics & all are gorgeous. I speak fluent mandarin Chinese, & I feel that the translations were pretty well done also. I have never played a game quite like this one & I have to say I wish there were more. This is probably one of my most favorite games I’ve played on my phone, it was so interesting & enthralling that I finished the game in a day. I couldn’t stop playing it. I will way last time, this game is beautiful, everything about it. All the characters in it & everything.
