Myths of the World: The Black Sun Collector's Edition
Eipix Entertainment has just released another addition to the Myths of the World series. Myths of the World: The Black Sun Collector's Edition is a good hidden object puzzle adventure game to play if you are the fan of the genre or the series.
Things quickly take a dark turn, and there isn't that much time to figure everything out and fix what can be fixed.
The game's story is not bringing anything new to the table, though. But the same could be said about so many other hidden object puzzle adventure games these days. You are called in into your hometown to investigate the disappearance of the town's commander. Soon after you begin your investigation, your father gets turned into a stone by a strange creature. Looks like things quickly take a dark turn, and there isn't that much time to figure everything out and fix what can be fixed.
The graphics and the audio of the game are great. The outdoor and indoor scenes are filled with different colors and shades. You are going to travel in Europe and get some other culture experience, like yodeling in the Alps. The music, sounds, and voice-overs are done very well.
The game features four modes of difficulty: Animal Tracker, Beast Hunter, Monster Expert, and Adventure Seeker. Hints can be adjusted from 10-120 seconds, and skips - 10-400 seconds. You have a map and a strategy guide to help you proceed through the game.
The hidden object scenes are very well thought through. You get a good variety of them. The same can be said about the puzzles. They also vary in their challenge levels. 13 hidden object scenes and 23 puzzles are available for replay. Potions are going to be part of the adventure again. You get a weird helper "hummer", that comes in handy throughout the game. You get to collect 39 lizards and earn 29 achievements. You get all kinds media extras, like concept art, videos, wallpaper, and a souvenir room.
If you are a fan of the series, you are going to love. If you are looking for something genuinely innovative, not so much.
