Vermillion Watch: Moorgate Accord Collector's Edition
Well, here's to a new hidden object puzzel adventure game series. It comes from one of the acknowledged game developers, Eipix Entertainment. Vermillion Watch: Moorgate Accord Collector's Edition is a wonderfull HOPA game set in London a couple of centuries ago.
Your uncle was part of this special group protecting England. Now you take on this task.
It seems that the terrible reaper from a while back has set the stage for all kinds of dark stories about London. Vermillion Watch: Moorgate Accord Collector's Edition suggest you yet another story but with a pitch of something supernatural.
Your meeting with your uncle and his friend was abruptly ended by an enormous creature that came seemingly out of nowhere. But it doesn't take you very long to figure out that there has been a breach in the deal between good and evil; there is someone turning people into these monster-like creatures to terrorize London; and there is a lot of your uncle's research to be finished.
Your uncle was part of this special group protecting England. Now you take on this task. It seems that the story of this game is full of all kinds of details and characters to explore. The bonus chapter puts you after Irene Adler and her "minions" (who are not small at all - don't be mislead by the word).
The game's scene's are mostly in dark brown colors (isn't it typical for London stories like that?). But they are very detailed and nicely done and create a great atmosphere with the voice overs and soundeffects. Many of the audio-visuals, like soundtracks, posters, screensavers are for the download as extras.
The game features four modes of difficulty, one of which is Custom. You can adjust hints (10-120 seconds) and skips (10-400 seconds), too. You get a map and a strategy guide to assist you.
Apart from all the inventory that you need to find and put toger and use, you also need to pay attention to morphing objects in the hidden object scenes and, of course, to all 44 collectibles scattered around. The hidden object scenes and the puzzle look quite "fresh" for someone who's been in the genre for quite a while. You get to replay both.
It is an interesting new game to explore and meet new characters who will be coming back in the next releases.
