Dark Heritage: Guardians of Hope
A Real Gem
I really enjoyed this one. The artwork is outstanding. The Hidden Object Scenes were fun and easy to get through. Puzzles were challenging but do-able. The length is excellent. Hints refill quickly in easy mode and Skips are fairly fast, too.
Everything just works. I didn't want it to end.
I hope we'll get more from these developers.

Really decent HOAG, not perfect
I thought this was a pretty good HOAG. The level of challenge wasn't too challenging for me, but it still made me think. I always play in advanced/expert mode, so you can get an idea of the level of game play. An intermediate player would probably really enjoy it. HOS were good, some items hidden pretty well! There wasn't too much back and forth with items to use, but I actually like wild goose hunts. Storyline.....was okay. Graphics were good!

You are asked by your college professor to save an island. No easy task. Live actors were great but the VOs did not match the mouth movements of the actors. A minor detail to me. Still enjoyable just the same. There was an equal amount of HOS and puzzles, plus other items you pick up along the way in each scene outside the HOS. The hint button refills quickly and also acts as a guide from scene to scene. There is a lot of travelling to do in this game. Many places to search so make sure you have a good pair of shoes. The HOS were the norm, some objects easier to find than others. Ditto on the puzzles, some easier than others. I did skip a few. An interesting adventure.

The graphics are super good. It was a challenge but a little strange in content.

I really enjoyed this game. I didn't think I would at first. I'm not crazy about "human characters" (as someone else also said) but I found all of it fun.

Good Game, Good Story
I love a bit of adventure and especially a good story backing up a hidden object game. Just what you get here.

Long and Fun
I really enjoyed this game and give it a 4.5 for sure. A bit old style but it had good puzzles which were not too hard, great HOS with NO tiny objects, a hint button that led you where you needed to go, an interesting story with an unexpected twist, and a satisfactory ending. It had varied locations and good graphics. All told, it was a solid game altgether, and I think most will enjoy it.

COMPELLING AND CHALLENGING
Compelling story about the Philosopher's Stone. Gameplay is rather challenging as you don't just walk into scenes where you will find what you need at the moment. Lots of things to do. Interesting how it seems that you end up going in circles whenever you go through the mountains, no matter which direction you take. The graphics are great, the locations artistically done, the voice overs and cutscenes very nice. Your journal has extra information no evident from just the gameplay. Don't know how I missed this gem. I like that you aren't led by the nose to know what you have to do next. Hint recharges rapidly. I'd rate it a 4 1/2 stars if I could.

Picked this up on today's Daily Deal and am pleasantly surprised. Intriguing style. Would look for more titles from this developer: World Loom. Blended 3d and 2D well. Location off north UK different from usual. Am pleased with purchase and having fun with it.
