Maestro: Music of Death - A Must-Have-It Game!
There are different genres in the casual games world. But there are also different kinds of games within one genre according to what any game has to offer.
Some games are just to fill in the blank while waiting for something worthy, while others are the ones you are waiting on to enjoy it from start to end. Maestro: Music of Death belongs to the latter ones.
The game doesn't give away the whole story when you know what to expect.
You play as an inspector who is trying to find out what's going on in a town that was closed because of some weird illness. Pretty soon you learn that for some unknown reason people get older and eventually die from the old age. You collect the information piece by piece, and you learn that it has something to do with a little girl playing music...
The game doesn't give away the whole story when you know what to expect. No, here, you are kept interested in what's going on. The whole presentation of the game is just perfect creating such a great atmosphere. It really is quite scarry with the animation and high quality drawings depicting the slightest details.
Not only can you enjoy the images with such details as pores on a woman's face, but also you get the voice acted dialogues. As to the scenes cluttered with stuff, they are not spoilers too. All the clutter is very related and belongs to the places where you find it.
As to the gameplay, Maestro: Music of Death is a typical hidden object/adventure game. Those two main activities are balanced pretty good here. The hiden object levels follow the classic path. You are given a list if items to find with rechargable hint available to you. Some of the items are to be put together, like a burning candle.
The rest of the time you are going to wander around meeting different characters and coming across all kinds of projects. That past of the game is not particularly easy even in the regular mode. But the hints work here as well,showing you where to go if you are lost.
Then there are also a sort of mini-games. But they don't stand up as a separate part of the game, but rather get played unnoticed as part of you wandering and searching.
The game is wonderful and enjoyable to play in its every aspect.
