Good Start to a Long Journey
(spoiler free)There aren't that many puzzle adventure apps in the app store, and that's a shame considering how addicting those kinds of games can be. The legend of crystal valley, doesn't exactly top it as an awesome adventure game, but it is quite an app. The storyline is really interesting to get into however, be prepared to read a lot of dialogue between the many in-game characters.(Seriously, no voiceovers?!) The graphics were a major downgrade from the original computer game, but I did like the first person point and click idea. The puzzles in this game were not too difficult, but also not too easy either. I did NOT experience any crashes in my playthrough like other reviewers. Lastly, this app purchase only includes 1 of four chapters which all comes down to about 4 bucks. (chapters can be purchased within the app) Overall, the game is quite an adventure for those looking into long, time consuming, games.
The game is great and I like the puzzles and all, could do without the frequent crashes but lucky for me I've not lost where I was when the game crashes so I didn't have to start from the beginnging again as some who have posted had to.
The only thing I see "wrong" or disapointing is that without Wi-Fi the remaining chapters are unavailable. I don't have Wi-Fi near me, the closest is over 10 miles away. It would be great to have this game available as an entire game (just like for PC which it is available for a PC) or make the remaining chapters available in the Apps Store.
Needs improvements but a nice game
Overall this is a very nice game. This is like Syberia 1 meets Journey to the Center of the Earth. For $5 I really can't complain too much.
The sound needs fixing. I'm not saying that it is not enjoyable, it needs fixing. It sounds like the speakers are straining eveb at 1/16 volume.
The play control could be better too, like a zoom feature. Certain items are overlooked. Also sometimes you have to go back to get forward (like the game screen gets you turned around)
Graphics are nice and relaxing though.
There is definately a lot of text and reading though.
