Danse Macabre: Lethal Letters Collector's Edition
If you are a fan of hidden object puzzle adventure games, you probably know that if it is the Danse Macabre series, it is going to be intense! And it very well is in the new release, Danse Macabre: Lethal Letters Collector's Edition.
The story of this game is very interesting and dramatic - perfectly fitting the Valentine's Day week!
You have mystery, you have love, and you have a lot of puzzles here! You are called in as an expert on hypnosis to help the count and his fiancee. The story revolves around Irina, a prima balerina. She's been having strange black outs.
The things she does during those black out are very strange, like shooting her own beloved. As you can guess there is hypnosis involved, which will help you find out who is behind it all and more inmoptantly why.
The story is interesting and the audio-visuals used to deliver it to you are excellent. The graphics are crist and detailed, the characters are realistic. There are little things from Russian culture scattered across the game (even though most of the scenes look quite generic for the genre).
What was supposed to be an easy case turned into a very dangerous race for the truth. The game will keep you on your toes.
It is heavier on the puzzles rather than the hidden object scenes. The puzzles come in different forms and shapes, as well as difficulty levels. The HOP scenes are ususally multi-step ones. There a few mini hidden object scenes. If you get tired of them you can play a match-3 instead.
There are four levels of difficulty including the customizable one. They are presented as Matryoshki, the stacking dolls. The skip and hint are adjustable. There is a map and a strategy guide for your convenience. There are 76 collectibles and 13 achievements. 26 puzzles and 15 HOP scenes are replayable.
It is a fun game with an interesting adventure. You even get to hypnotize people with your watch - how cool is that?!
