I Just Can't "Whisper" That This "Myth" Is Worth Telling!
I am really enjoying this gem! The pretty graphics are fairly sharp and clear with finely detailed and intricately hand drawn scenes. The artwork is visually appealing; the color scheme is heavily dominated by a rich and vibrant blue/green shade that creates a mysterious, ominous atmosphere. The background noises appropriately elevate a level of suspense with the sounds of murky, swampy water drifting, the chirping of crickets, and the haunting calls of water fowl. You cannot customize your settings; this developer needs to update their standards to meet players' needs. The inventory is labeled, interactive, and puzzle-like; items require assembly. The teleport map will indicate objectives or available actions depending on mode of difficulty; locations are labeled. The HOS are very interactive, multilayered, and consist of various types. The puzzles are creative, varied, and in sequence at times; I love the one where you create your path on the map while avoiding obstacles. You have collectibles; they can be well hidden. No glitches so far; transition between scenes is smooth and quick. Overall, it's a highly interactive game with nice variety; and it's a nice way to spend time.
Technically OK but I never got into it
My rating is closer to 3 1/2 stars, but I'm rounding up because (a) I liked the complex HOPs, (b) the developer went the extra mile with collectibles, and (c) I may be too critical because I personally found the game dull.
The plot never really crystallizes, and the ending to the main game is abrupt. The bonus chapter is very brief, so it doesn't make up for the shortcomings of the storyline.
However, the graphics, cut scenes and soundtrack are well done, and there is a good blend between HOPs and minigames. Most of the HOPs involve multiple steps, and they are a strong positive for the game. Also, the developer provided not only a set of collectibles, but souvenirs that you can gather from designated scenes after you have completed the bonus chapter.
The controls need some work. Difficulty is not configurable. Touch sensitivity for items and movement is erratic.
On the whole, this was a game that I looked forward to finishing, so it's difficult to say that I recommend it. If you can buy it on sale, you may find it worth your time.
Best in this series
I've not been a great fan of Eipix games for a few reasons but I have to admit I'm highly impressed with their last few games. This one turned out to be enlightening, loads of fun! Before it was two different Ravenhurst games that were just awesome! This game started to get heavy on the hos towards the end but they offer an alternative with mahjong. That's my only complaint. Buy it! It's a good one!
