European Mystery: Scent of Desire reviewed by LynxMinx

Well, BigFish, one of the best ever! You will notice that I did not even deduct a star for the RATS! ME!! They were confined to one location and I dealt with them calmly! I should not be telling you this or they will be in every game! But seriously gamers, this is worth every cent! Beautiful graphics, great story, lengthy with a long bonus chapter, labeled inventory, teleporting map, helpful journal,strategy guide, lots of fun puzzles. The puzzles were not the same old ones in every story either! Also novel about this game was that you got to practice alchemy, which is the art of mixology for the intent of magic and wizardry! Lots of fun! I can't wait for the sequel!
Also the gameplay was smooth! This game must have seriously been evaluated and thoroughly tested because it wasn't glitchy and a pleasure to play! The only negative was that in going from certain location the load time was not immediate, and that was really no big deal. So, BigFish, I guess you really read our comments and take them seriously, because you gave us everything we wanted in a game (except the rats). I wasn't familiar with the game developer, as I am used to ERS and Blue Tea and Elephant games, but they are superior in the quality of their games! Please can you tell them we want the sequel tomorrow? Just joking, but you know what I mean. Thanks for a great and thoroughly enjoyable game experience!


While I enjoyed much of this game, I often found it impossible to locate some items in the "find hidden objects" portion of this activity. They either had no resemblance to the requested item or were in darkened areas or very tiny & impossible to discern w/out using the "hint" icon. Also, for items hidden, it was either merely a guess that located the item, ie, a machete hidden under a pile of whatever, or again using the hint icon. As for going from one location to another, often even using the hint icon was of little use, it often sent me back to the same location repeatedly. I would then need to resort to going to map but it did take me a bit to figure that due to my assumption the " hint" would direct me correctly, even if IT were to go to map. The overall was, kinda fun, but could have used a good bit of polish prior to release.
On the flip, I have seen much, much worse than this game. And I trust it will only get better from here, so I won't give up on you yet! If I could give you a 3.5 I would have.

Weird But In A Good Way...?

Spoiler Alert: Who would think up a storyline of a madman stealing the scents of women and a mentor to make one very special "scent" for a very special someone...but who?

Story aside, and it is quite interesting, the game is substantial, intriguing and fun. The puzzles are just enough to use but not overly tax your brain cells - something good for a "get away game."
And, for the price?! Can't beat this game with a stick, lickety split!

BLAM Great Job! Great Game, that I'm still playing by the way, and I look forward to the next one...maybe even a sequel...?! Big Fish - Thumbs Up As Usual!

Oh, and not to be forgotten:
Thumbs Up on the Interactive Map that ACTUALLY Takes you to the place AND Especially Love the Video Replay! More games should follow the lead on both, the video replay even moreso! Love it! Love It!
