Relics of Fate: A Penny Macey Mystery
A must for all those hidden object fans
I thought this game was very interesting with many hidden object scenes. All good with this game.

What a stinker. What one word best describes this game; garbage or trash? For story line I rate it an F, for graphics a D-, for cut scenes about a D, and for puzzles a C because while most of them were boring, trite, rote copies of other puzzles, at least two were intellectual puzzles. The cut scenes resembled the Sunday comics. Fun? This game forgot fun entirely. The HOS were mixed with a couple of them being very good and a couple of them requiring 200 to 300 clicks in the dark corners to find items that were entirely invisible before and after being ?found?. I?d say give them a C- for HOS because at least some of them passed my test. This game had nothing to recommend it. It might be best for a newbie who could ignore the foibles.

Unable to play due to the game going blinky blinky :(

Great little game
I really enjoyed playing as Penny Macey, visiting different crime scenes and sites to rescue my dear dad! I liked the HOS's and the puzzles, and just found this a lot of fun. Plenty of game time, and plenty of interest.

light HOG for novices
Light mildly challenging HOG with crisp graphics and sunny weather. No rain and thunder like most HOGs. Story line OK. I recommend this game for younger players or those who just started playing HOGs. Not too violent other than break ins.
About the plot (no spoilers), Some of the characters are mildly dim. Like in a pro shop where you can (Oh I need to distract him while I snoop) you do things that in normal situations would not been able to. Kinda made me chuckle thinking what would happen if I would have done the same in the real world.
All in all a light game. Mini puzzles can be challenging on a level of 1 to 10 I give it a 5.
HOS challenge a 4 .
Graphics a 7. Crisp not too dark and no clutter (which is a plus )
I did not come across clicking penalty either.

Started well then went astray
This game started like a usual detective game, hunting for clues of hidden relics in local surburban locations and finding them in drawers, bank vaults, bookcases and other feasible positions then went off on a tangent to underground caverns and catacombs with stone doors, walls and other not so feasible locations. The story begins after a local P.I. while investigating lost or stolen relics, meets with foul play and his daughter must continue where he left off to find these relics before they fall into the wrong hands and find and release her father. The cut scenes and introductiion were comic book stile but was still bearable but the music was a bit monotonous. The graphics were mainly clear, bright and precise but some scenes tended to be a bit darkish which made some of the hidden objects almost impossible to discern in the gloom. Others were quite reasonable to find with some effort. The puzzles were challenging and took a fair bit of figuring out which made them even more difficilt with no clues or help to let you know what had to be done. I feel this could have been a better game if the ending was not so "out of place"
