Celtic Lore: Sidhe Hills
Now that it is spring all over us, it is time for some exploration and adventure. You should find some of that in the reality, but there is also a great opportunity to do that in the virtual realm in Celtic Lore: Sidhe Hills. This game invites you to the world of fairies and magic, but everything is not that nice and easy about it, because humans are not really wellcome here...
One of the kinds of the hidden object levels is the one where you get the silhouettes instead of words.
In Celtic Lore: Sidhe Hills you go to the magic land not because it is spring and you want some adventure, but because your brother is in trouble. You are the one to find and rescue him from an evil queen.
The game focuses mostly on the hidden object levels. Those are devided into two categories. One of them is a classic one where you are given a list of items to find. But there is one twist to it. The items are scattered across more than one location. You know which ones are not where you are by the color of a word on the list.
Another kind of the hidden object levels is the one where you get the silhouettes instead of words. What makes these levels so challenging is that most of the items are of very general shapes, like tubes or squares.
So that's when hints become very handy since many items are of those shapes. Plus there is no clue as to the size of those items. When you are to use those items, it is hard to figure out sometimes what will it look like in your scene.
There are also different mini-games along the way. Those are the ones that you saw in many other games before, but that doesn't mean they are boring. And even if they are, they are skippable.
The graphics are all beautiful and create a perfect atmosphere of a fairy tale with all the woods, sparkles, creatures etc. Some of the creatures are a bit blurry, but in general the outward appearence of the game is very eye-friendly.
The game has its pros and cons, so the trial version might be a great idea first.
