Chimeras: Tune Of Revenge
I've been waiting to play this game for ages! I fell in love with it immediately when I heard the organ grinder's song! It's mesmerizing. Beautiful coloring, excellent voice-overs, interesting story, haunting music. We have a bonus game, puzzles, pets to collect, and a helpful map.

ALL THOSE MONSTERS
LENGTH: Main game about 4 hours 45 minutes.
? Wonderful story of an organ grinder telling a tale of past death and who is now leaving threatening cards to people who soon die. Keeps your interest to the very end. Grinder loves his hurdy-gurdy and very clever rhymes.
? Wide variety of clever puzzles and mini-games with varying degrees of difficulty. Mini-games are fairly easy.
? HOS are somewhat crowded but very detailed, so finding objects is not a problem.
? Terrific combination of graphics and animation, that lend to the overall atmosphere of fear from an organ grinder seeking revenge.
? Your fire phoenix, Terrance, lights up your life and helps you out in hot situations.
? A lot of attention to creating environment details with very good voice overs.
? Hint outside the HOS can be quite specific. Alternatively, the interactive map will tell you what needs to be done in each location if you cursor over it. Or, since the locations are so enticing, you may want to forgo the map altogether.
? Imaginative monsters who are part of each of the 13 cursed cards the grinder creates.
NEITHER GOOD NOR BAD:
? The curse cards are used in the end game, so you have to pay attention to who, what and why the cards cursed so that you can answer the riddles presented.

Either I am making better choices or the games are getting better!! This was great fun. At first, I was not happy with the cards, but I understood at the end, which was interesting. It let me know that I was not paying attention!
Very interesting and different story, The graphics are beautiful; even the beasts are beautiful! There is an interactive map with info on what to do next. ( I play 'hardcore', so that was a little too much info for me.)
HOs were not bad, and the minigames were fun.
I really enjoyed that the storyline was different, not the same old usual. They gave good thought to this game.

What is not to like?
I could not find anything not to like in this game. Fantastic storyline. Outstanding graphics. Good HO's and great mini games. You are the detective. Get to the bottom of the dirtiest plans the human mind can conceive to achieve their most vain desires. Be the judge. This game is a classic in a new age. Even those who are not HOG lovers will enjoy this game. Good singing too of the Edgar Allan Poe's Raven poem :)

Beautiful Graphics, Story, Play
Wonderful HOG, just the right length and challenge.
Pros: Beautiful graphics/voice-overs, HO scenes don't overshadow the game or take too long. Good linear structure -no back and forth, back and forth. Interesting cast of characters and intuitive play. Nice deep story and smooth (although not surprising) ending.
Cons: Music is annoying a bit -- and the opening uses an Edgar Allen Poe poem for a story that should have taken place at least a century before.
Overall, fun, inventive and a great game.

I absolutely loved this game! The storyline was engaging, the atmosphere was beautiful, and the HO scenes were clear and easy to see. Honestly the only problem with this game was that it didn't last long enough! I love love love it! Great job Elephant games! I really recommend this one! Its a great one for all players, beginners, to expert. Start gaming!

This game is one of my favourites.
- The story is great.
- There are 3 game modes.
- There is a really good map, allowing you to jump, so no need to walk. It shows active locations.
- The HOS are clear and not too cluttered.
- The mini-games are on the easy side, but interesting.
In Advanced mode, and without skipping, it took me about 2 hours to complete. But I still highly recommend it!

I have never reviewed a game before but this--this was just beyond anything I've played! I am VERY big on storylines and this was was not only unique but original which is a major bonus (for me personally it keeps me wanting to know more and dare to delve into the story more#. I actually jumped and started shaking at certain parts because they both startled and scared me at the same time. It leaves you with a great anticipation with an 'OMG do I REALLY want to know what's going to happen next?'.
As far as game play goes, the only real issue I had was alot of bouncing around back and forth to find the things needed. I'm not a big puzzle person so not having too many was refreshing and the HO were clear enough for me to see and a lot of fun.'
The graphics were crisp and clear as well as the sound--it fit the story very well #almost TOO well#.
In short, I loved it and wish more had such original stories #there is only one other game I've played here #okay two# that have had such intriguing and interesting plots#.
P.S. -- The absolute cuteness of a little birdie as well as a very handsome NPC also permits me to give it bonus points!
