Tales of Terror: Art of Horror Collector's Edition
Another Tales of Terror game has been released recently! Tales of Terror: Art of Horror Collector’s Edition is a wonderful addition to the series. You set on an intriguing adventure in search for you long-lost brother.
As you try to figure things out in this weird place you encounter other prisoners of the estate and how things work here so that you could escape from it.
You play as a reporter who suddenly receives an anonymous note about her younger brother who has gone missing a long time ago. Intrigued by this message, you go all the way to an estate where he is supposed to have been living this whole time. There doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with the estate when you first arrive at it. A nice older lady is receiving you there. She offers a cup of tea for the tired traveler. And this is where you make your first mistake because the next thing you know – you wake up as a prisoner of the estate.
As you try to figure things out in this weird place you encounter other prisoners of the estate and how things work here so that you could escape from it. But you don’t want to escape from it alone, you want to help anyone you can and most importantly find your brother and take him with you. There is going to be a lot of unexpected turns in this dramatic story.
The game’s audio-visual presentation is decent, but not particularly astonishing. Some of the details seem anachronistic for the whole game set in the mid-1930s. But if you are not too picky you will probably not even notice it.
The game’s gameplay, in general, is not very strong. The hidden object scenes are rather simple and easy, more suitable for the less skilled players, maybe kids (as long as you are okay with some death and blood parts of the story). You are revisiting some of them. The mini games are the same. They will be an easy slow-paced way to kill some time.
While the game is not super challenging, you still get to collect all the collectibles and the morphing objects. There are also achievements to make things harder for you. As a CE the game offers a lot of the usual media extras: concept art, music, wallpaper.
The game is definitely going to find its audience. Check it out for yourself to see if you are one of them!
