I play video games and review them.

Worlds Apart: The Descent Beta Test

When your stepfather falls ill, it’s up to you to travel to the mystical world of Terra. Can you find a cure for him and uncover this world’s secrets?

Before we get to the review, I need to make an announcement. From now on, I’ll only be posting once a week and on Wednesdays. I recently started writing and I want to spend more time on that. Right now, I’m only working on fanfiction but I’m confident that, eventually, I’ll move up to original work.

From what I saw of the plot, it definitely looks intriguing. The game play is your typical hidden object. You go from place to place collecting items for your inventory. Some items require you to participate in a hidden object scene in order for you to collect them. You need to use these items in order to advance throughout the story. If you’re stuck, use a hint.

This game is intriguing but not really addictive. I might buy the full version.

Off the Record: Linden Shades (Bigfishgames.com)

When a mysterious figure haunts the Linden Shades orphanage, the police immediately shut the place down and send the children to foster homes. As a reporter, your job is to investigate the former site of the orphanage. Can you discover what’s going on and help reopen Linden Shades?

Playing the beta test made me want to check out the entire series. I have to say, I love the plot in this game. You never know what’s going to happen. I also like how everything’s wrapped up and the ending of this game will shock you. If you want more of the story, buy the collector’s edition.

The game play is your typical hidden object. You go from scene to scene collecting items for your inventory. You have to use what you collect in order to advance throughout the game. If you’re stuck, use a hint. The one thing that separates this game from other hidden objects is that you also collect tapes to discover more about the mystery of the story.

This game is addictive and intriguing. I give it 8 out of 10; one of the best hidden objects I’ve ever played.
