ND strikes again

After being frustrated at another ND game I gave this one a try and am pleased to say it did not disappoint!

Forgotten Books: The Enchanted Crown Collector's Edition
 – 

Funny

A nice easy relaxing game. I recommend it but try and buy it in the sales - will be all the sweeter! Rabbit annoying at times though and you will guess the storyline by chapter 3 but it won't spoil things.

Riddles of Fate: Into Oblivion Collector's Edition
 – 

Looks like a new series...

This is a good game with a small twist at the end which leads you to believe it will return...

Phantasmat Collector's Edition
 – 

Curious

A good game with good puzzles. Not too easy either and definately creepy in places. Strange woman reminds me of a character in a movie called "Spirited Away" but that's not a bad thing...

Dark Tales - Edgar Allan Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher Collector's Edition
 – 

Good

Good puzzle game but it does take liberties with Poe's story as do most 'historical' games but if you ignore that, it's fun

Letters From Nowhere 2

Didn't grip

A cryptic puzzle game that never held me. Reasonable game but not my style

The Secret Order: Ancient Times Collector's Edition
 – 

Try it

Ok this is a good game but you won't get the story unless you have played previous games of this group. Otherwise if not, it's a good HO puzzle with a fairy story around it.

Nancy Drew: Tomb of the Lost Queen
 – 

Love this story

Great story, great game just one quibble. No map so you have to retrace steps and boy, did I get lost in tunnels 1,2 and 3

Nancy Drew: Sea of Darkness

Great

Not my most favourite but it ranks high. The animation is definately an improvement on the older ones

Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton Hall
 – 

Creepy

If I have to fault this game is it is very dark and sometimes difficult to see fine detail but the story is creepy enough

Mystery Trackers: Raincliff's Phantoms
 – 

Ok

This is a continuation of the previous Raincliff mystery game and like all Mystery Tracker games the graphics are good. Only issue with this game is the story is a little light weight as though they have a story that they have split in two to get more money out of it and stretched it to fit. It has an open end and leaves you a bit unsatisfied but the games and puzzles are good.

Danse Macabre: The Last Adagio
 – 

Dull

I wanted this to be interesting but the puzzles are not challenging and the ghost conversations are brief and dull. Story could be so interesting but it isn't

Enchanted Cavern
 – 

Don't bother

This game is very frustrating. There is scant instruction. The time clock is very vague and there is no help if the time is tight. It's not as if I wanted a hand hold but so many times you get to within ONE square and the time "suddenly" runs out. It isn't a game of skill but of total chance that the squares fall as you need them. I like a challenge but this one is down to pure luck only so save your money unless you like swearing and getting stressed. I have abandoned it. Permenantly

Fear for Sale: Nightmare Cinema
 – 

Lost the plot

Unlike the CE version which seems to have issues in the bonus, this plays ok till the end. I play a lot of HO games but this one left me cold. Sure, graphics are good and the HO games are the same as expected but the plot was shallow and rushed. It just didn't grab me. I just felt like I was walking from room to room aimlessly and some of it was very random. As for the villain, he was too easy to defeat. No challenge. A game for a wet afternoon if you are bored but nothing else.

Otherworld: Shades of Fall
 – 

Better with each game

Played both Summer and Fall and this is the better of the two. You really don't need the CE version to enjoy this story which has a fourth one coming I suspect to conclude it.
