Dream Chronicles: The Book of Air - New Beginning
Dream Chronicles: The Book of Air is the fourth game in the Dream Chronicles series and the first one in a new trilogy of games from PlayFirst.
It is time for the new generation to take up their place in the story.
Talking about the new generation I mean Lyra, Faye's half-fairy daughter.
Lyra is 18 year old now, and she got into trouble. The game starts with her disappearing and reappearing in anther place, a town of Wish to be specific.
Her grandfather is the only one who is able to help her sending some notes. But it seams to her that the only way for her to escape that other dimension and get back is to find someone known as Clockmaster.
The game is not different from all of the other of the series. It offers a mixture of point-and-click with seek-and-find levels. Lyra is also able to use certain spells helpful to the game, that are represented by different jewels scattered around. Those include translating the fairy language, illuminating dark
areas, and even calling down thunder and rain from the sky.
You are to travel to several different location that can be traveled to by airship once you
discover the correct coordinates for a location and find colored stones
to use as fuel.
The hint system in this game is what makes it different from its predecessors. You'll no longer find yourself stuck trying to
find items thanks to a recharging magnifying glass that can be used to
reveal an object's location. You can even use it to find dream jewels.
There are also two modes: Casual and Challenge. In
casual mode, the mini-game puzzles are slightly less challenging, and
you can skip them after a certain amount of time has passed.
The graphics remain as perfect as it is always with the series games.
