Vampire Saga - Welcome To Hell Lock
Vampire Saga - Welcome To Hell Lock is another hidden object/adventure game with a Twighliht-driven story and many items to find and use. The game promisses to be all creepy and bloody, but it really isn't, and the gameplay assignments that you get are not that challenging all together.
The general challenge level is very low. One of the things that contributes to this is the feature of glowing.
The small image next to the game's name looks quite bloody, but the game is reality won't make you shiver that much. There might be one really impressive horror-wise moment in the game, and that's about it.
The game takes you into an abandoned town, where you are to explore the streets and many other locations in order to find your way out of there. There isn't much of the story told behind the gameplay. You travel to new (or old) locations using the pictures in the photo album. That makes it easier to know where to go next or where there's a hidden object scene for you, but it also turns the game into a collection of hidden object scenes, rather than a story gradually unfolding before you.
Those hidden object scenes are many in this game, and make up the majority of the gameplay, but, unfortunatelly, they are do not have that much to offer. The general challenge level is very low. One of the things that contributes to this is the feature of glowing.
The objects' names on the list at the bottom of the screen start glowing green as you aproach an item it stands for. So with such help you can find all the items by just moving your cursor around the screen. I bet you could find all of them without ireading the list at all. Plus the items are pretty much the same through the whole game. And when you need to go back to a location where you once were, the items remain in their same places.
The mini-games in between the hidden object scenes are not that challenging too. And sometimes, they become too boring as a result. That's when the skip button comes in handy. The graphics are a bit blurry for a game that focusses mainly on the hidden object levels. But they are still pretty decent.
As you can see the game kind of fails in almost every way. The more experienced players will notice that right away, while the new to the genre may still be able to enjoy it.
