This Game Can't SERIOUSLY be by Elephant, Can It?
While waiting for new titles from Elephant, I decided that I would try this one. This was nowhere near the standard we?re used to, and I was very disappointed.
To be honest, the opening was one of the worst I?ve seen, especially the first part. I mean, it was a guy opening a book- WOW! SO EXCITING! Some of the characters are just ridiculous- a talking magpie with glasses (with a science degree too!). From then on, the story isn?t interesting at all. Rubbing salt in to the wounds, the demo is a laughable 25 minutes, which doesn?t give us any time to actually get in to the story. I?d tell you what happens in the demo, but there?s nothing to tell.
The graphics, however, are what is to be expected of Elephant. They are wonderfully clear, very realistic and the artwork was beautifully done. The character design is great too. It?s sad to think that the graphics were better than the story.
The HOS were good. They were standard of Elephant Games. They were fairly easy and included interactive objects. Not much of a challenge there. I can?t fault Elephant on this though, as this is pretty much what you?d expect from all games.
I only encountered one puzzle during my demo and to my surprise; I was able to solve it. Granted that it did take some time, but nonetheless, I persevered. Congrats to the developers on that one.
- Diary to keep track of events
- Taskbar of some sorts. Showed you what your next task was.
- There is an interactive map that saves a lot of time that would?ve otherwise been spent back tracking.
- 3 modes to play- I played Casual.
- Hint and skip recharge fast on Casual mode, and the hint is very helpful outside the HOS.
- At the end of the demo, you acquired a ?Book of Fire.? The title is pretty self-explanatory, with its main use to melt ice to get to the next scene.
- The talking raven also acted as a carrier. As stated before, this character did get annoying very quickly.
So, overall, this game barely scrapes in with a two star rating. I absolutely hated this story, and I can say that with no bias, as I am an Elephant fan. Sorry Elephant, this game hasn?t won me.

This is one of the Worst Demos I have Played...Certainly don't want the game
I guess the Review title says it all....I played the standard version demo, and didn't even want to spend ANY MONEY on that....there was nothing FUN in this game...it has you jumping all over the place, so who can even figure out what the point of the story was....I won' t play this game even if it was free!!!! The Demo told me that...Good luck for you folks that liked it....Not ME

??? What ??? Brain Strain!
It may just be me being really stupid, but I found this game so difficult, I didn't even get through the trial. I was at a total loss as to where to go, or what I was supposed to achieve. I am so glad I decided to play the trial, before throwing my money away on this ball of confusion. I play game to relax, not to give me a headache, which is what I got, trying to figure this one out.
