Lose a star for getting stuck. Strategy guide tells me to get cane after deciphering parchment. Not there. No cane, cannot open armory.
Anachronisms make my teeth grind. Ballistics test? Really? And testing to match blood samples. In 1843 there wasn't even a reliable test to determine if a stain was actually blood, never mind whether human or animal. Blood typing didn't come along until turn of the century (so a transfusion could save you and not kill you)--still not ready for CSI.
Oh, well, at least there are no leprechauns or demons or ghosts or angels. Lovin' Arthur, especially because he is a sniffing, digging dog, and not a talking one!
Original review below:
Just started, and already demanding review? You asked for it. So far I've spotted a number of elements from the original story (dog, cipher; opening animation promises several others I won't list [spoilers]), with novel applications. Think I'll buy this one. Deleted Masque without purchase as too cutesy for my taste.
Great SERIES, GREAT GAME!!!!!
This is from another great series. So far this appears even better than the last two and you have better access to the strategy guide. Good puzzles but not so hard you can't beat them.
Thank you big fish and all your helpers.
Snooper-158 ps when you use the pipettes to test the blood it can be a little touchy just squeeze your fingers together, while you hold it over the samples.
Everything was going fine until trying to give the antidote recipe to the fisherman. The game keeps quitting and won't go beyond here. If there are technical issues with certain versions of iPad, we should know about these before purchasing. And there's no way of getting our money back, even though it's THEIR game that doesn't work properly. I will buy no more games for iPad. Most of them, if they work at all, work poorly. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because I liked the game up to the point where it crashed.
