Blood Ties - Keep The Demon Locked
Blood Ties, developed by Shade Tree Games / GO! Games and published by Lifetime
Games, is another hidden object game.
What makes if different is the fact
that it's based on the Blood Ties TV show. So if you are familiar with the
series based on the fantasy books by Tanya Huff and you actually like it you
may find it fun to play the game.
The story behind the game follows the atmosphere of the TV show very
well. You are to find the missing people in order not to let a demon to be set
Meet the cast of the game - Vicki Nelson and Henry Fitzroy. In case you
have no idea who they are, I'll make it clear for you.
Vicky used to work in
police but now she is a private investigator, and Henry Fitzroy is a 450-year-old
vampire, the illegitimate son of King Henry VIII, who is her co-worker in
saving the world from ghosts, demons, zombies etc.
In this game, the case they
are solving deals with the disappearance of several people. All the people
belong to a secret society and each one of them has a fragment of a tablet that
keeps a demon named Astaroth locked. All the pieces are to be put together once
a year for the tablet to keep doing its job. So this fact makes it important to
find all the kidnapped ones.
This hidden object game has no puzzle mini-games between the levels.
It's all about sick-and-find. But often times it seems more than enough.
The game itself is all about seek-and-find process. You won't find any
mini-games interrupting the levels.
It may seem to be boring but it would be
good news for those who hate those puzzle mini-games that you can't even skip
Every level of the game is preceded by the case file on the person
you are trying to find. Then you are to visit several locations in each level.
rules are very typical - click on all the items you have on the list. There's a
hint button that is being recharged when you click on the special icons.
game is quite challenging and you get more of a challenge when several things
on the screen represent a word on the list. So clicking on all of them reveals
the right one. And remember that you get fined for random clicking.
If I got you interested enough to try this game then there's one more
thing I have to tell you. You have to give up the expectations of getting a lot of
Vicki and Henry if you know what I mean. The game lacks a little bit of their
dialogues, for example, which can be important for those who tries the game
because of their love for the TV series. But you can definitely keep the
expectation to play a good challenging hidden object game.
