Voiceless, but interesting
From the opening artwork, I expected colorful, lovely scenes. The scenes are beautifully drawn, but muted by their palette of only grays and browns. Even the rainbow puzzles are muted, as if they had been erased. Also, you can read speeches by the characters, but there are no voice overs. How sad! Good vocalizations would have added a welcome dimension to the puzzles. Most of the HOs needed repeated or excessive tapping. The screen was not sensitive to touch. Also, many puzzles, such as the one in which you use a twig to brush beetles onto a piece of bark, required that the piece, like the twig, be in a very specific place on the screen or it would not work. Good thing I read that you could not go back once you cross the wooden bridge, so I was careful to complete all tasks before crossing. I am a few chapters in, and so far the tasks are fairly easy. I definitely prefer some of the games from Elephant or ERS. I would like a movable map. However, the Hint button is nicely specific, like Dig the keys from the flowerpots. The Skip button is also great when you are stuck. I have only referred to the Strategy Guide one time, so it must be relatively easy. However, I think it is worth the sale price to tide me over until something more exciting comes around.
Nice and different
I have been stuck in bed from being sick and needed to find a way to make time past quickly. After reading the positive reviews, I felt compelled to download Love Chronicles especially since I enjoyed the first one. At first I thought I would be annoyed that there were no voices, but that quickly changed from the decent graphics and music. It was also a nice change of pace to have a fantasy theme over the usual spookier BFG themes. The images were darker during hidden object scenes and I found myself using the hint buttons a few times. Also, I couldn't figure out what some of the objects were. There was no teleport map but that was not needed. The games were fun and not overly difficult but not too easy either. I found myself anxious to get to the games where you build these interesting contraptions.
Addiction Rating: 8 out of 10 stars for story line, music, graphics, and unique games.
Downside: After the game was over and I started the bonus level, the game did not save when I exited out and I could not get back into the bonus level unless I got through the ENTIRE main game again. GRRRR!
Would have given 5 stars except.....
I really liked this game. The graphics were sharp and clear. The gameplay was excellent, with a perfect mix of searching main scenes, HO scenes, and mini games.
I would have given it 5 stars except I ran across a (repeatable) bug. It was in the greenhouse cabinet. There are 4 items you must get from that cabinet. Unfortunately, if you take the faucet handle before getting the other 3, the cabinet closed and you could not get into it again. And you could not recover. You have to start over--which I did--twice, before I figured this out.
That made me paranoid the whole rest of the game, which did play flawlessly, btw. Every time I got stuck, I wondered whether the game had shut me out again, due to some bug. But it didn't. No problems occurred at all after the initial one. And the bonus chapter was awesome as well.
