Age_of_Oracles__Tara_s_JourneyAge of Oracles: Tara's Journey - Refreshing Game

 

Age of the Oracles: Tara's Journey is another hidden object game but not another typical hidden object game. The game is developed Jolly Bear Games and published by Big Fish Games.

 

You are to go though a number of chapters full of some new twists.

 

 

 

A girl Tara is being led by the denizens of the tarot deck to complete the task for every champter.

 

Age_of_Oracles__Tara_s_JourneyYou play as Tara who travels to different places with her weir friend - a talking peacock. The instructions of what  to do are received from the tarot cards.

 

Denizens like Empress, the Learned Man, and the Lovers are willing to help you for a certain fee.

 

One of the unusual twists of the game is that you must return a selection of items to the scene.

 

The environment is faded to black and white, which makes spotting the objects - which appear in full color in your inventory - a little tricky. Returning all of the items to their proper places opens a pair of doors. Behind each door is a traditional hidden object level, in which you must locate the items provided on your list.

 

Age_of_Oracles__Tara_s_JourneyThe graphics are done very well with all of the small details. Some of those details might be confusing sometimes because of the size.

 

There are hints for you to use anytime you want. They are rechrged very fast - god for you. Your talking peacock is the one who provides you with them.

 

Once you've cleared both hidden object levels, you'll return to the area where you first met the tarot card character, and here is where Age of Oracles really shines. You must now use the "special items" that you collected in the two hidden object sequences to solve a puzzle.

 

First, you must mouse around the environment to find glowing hotspots, then figure out how to use what's in your inventory to manipulate the area in question.  The puzzles aren't particularly difficult - the game pretty much tells you what you have to do - but they are clever, satisfying, and become gradually more difficult as you progress through the game.  Solve the puzzle, and you're on your way to your next encounter.

 

The game is a failier neither in the form nor in the content.
