Deadly Voltage: Rise of the Invincible
REVIEW OF COMPLETED GAME
I have read so much negativity about this game and I cannot understand any of it. These Devs have given us a super, solid 6 hour SE iHOPA that is just the bee's knees. I have not had this much fun with a game in a month of Sundays.
Gorgeous wide screen graphics with so much detail and so many locations, it's awesome. One of the best story lines in ages. An electromagnetic entity has come through a portal from another dimension and contaminated our world and is trying to take it over altogether. This is the Golden Boy and he is just magnificent. You are the messenger, hired to deliver a package to the town hotel, where you are roped into helping the person responsible for causing all the trouble with this portal he opened. You are directed to open the package and don the futuristic contents, which enable you to deal with electrifcity. This Golden Boy has brought fairy robots with him, which are so beautifully designed they are amazing. They interact with you throughout the game and are always seen flitting around. There are robots dotted around various locations. They ran amok at some point and have since been disabled, but you still get to use them for codes and items you need. If you do not get how good a story that is, then I have not done it justice. It's brilliant.
There are many iHOS, its true, but they are so well done, clear and quick and easy that I did not mind them at all. The puzzles are hard for the most part and although a small percentage defeated me, they are still fun. Backtracking is minimal and you never have to go back very far. Even if you did, the mechanics and navigation are so smooth and instant, it is a pleasure to roam around.
The music is piano jazz and whilst I am not a fan of jazz, I applaud anything that is not a funeral dirge. It lends style and atmosphere to the game. I wish more Devs would consider changing their music from the usual dismal orchestrals. There is no map but it's unnecessary with this game. There is a journal for all your clues and codes and information on the progress of the game. There are no voice overs but I ceased to notice that very early on, I got so caught up by the game play.
This is a really fun, creative, immersive game that is wonderfully designed and created, with everything one could wish for in a game, incorporated with flair and imagination, that gripped me straight off and held me all the way through.
From the ending I think there will be a sequel and if there is, I will be over the moon. Thanks Devs. Make more. Lots. Just like this one. Loved it.
If you can get this one with a pcc, it really will indeed, be your lucky day. I would have paid CE prices for it, it's that good. It starts off normally, just like any other game. Then it's uphill all the way. I played the whole thing with just one thought on my mind, "Wow, this is faaantastic!".
Recommend it? Heck, YES. It's a slam dunk!.

Really an excellent game
This is a great game. Screens, music, sounds and playability are all excellent. Hidden object screens are fun and challenging. Puzzles are hard. Storyline is fairly easy to follow, and the "hint" button is there to lead you where you need to go. I was drawn into this game and had a ball playing it.

A nice game with many things to do!
I liked this game because of the really good graphics, the length of it - about 4 hours - and all of the HOS - real junk piles...! The map allows to jump to a location, which is good, since there are many of them! The mini-games are on the easy side, but interesting.
All in all, well worth the money!

Unique HO !
I for one, really like this game. Alawar always has games like no one else. The drawings are so precise, there's no way you can't tell what everything is. The HO's are a little tough, but if you bear with it, you can find them. I didn't really like the music, but I could get used to it. If I was grading this game, I would give it an A+ !!

Really enjoyed this game!
I don't know why this game hasn't gotten better reviews. The graphics are very crisp and clear, there's a journal in the form of a computer, and there's a jump map which is one of the most important things in a game for me when you have to revisit previous locations. There are no voice overs but the dialogue is well written so not a big deal. Interactive HOS which were fairly challenging at times as some things are well hidden. The storyline is something different from the recent norm and kept me interested. I purchased after the demo and glad I did because I thoroughly enjoyed the entire game.

You Have To Play
This is a game worth playing, It has so many twist and turns

I loved it. You deliver a package to a small town and get involved in trying to rid the town of a deadly entity who is sucking the electrical energy out of the town.
No VOS, text only
Journal (computer screen emails)
HOS interactive and very clear
Good puzzles, short skip
The only character, the professor, was a little goofy, but it didnt affect the overall game
Lots of fun
4.25 hours casual

Not many special effects, but still good entertainer!
A man will deliver a package to a hotel. On the road hits a robot. The whole city is electrified and a strange man controls the electricity. Find out what's happening!
The game is well designed and crisp despite being night.
Does not provide the "special effects" or the amusement of others, as collectible, VO, new mini games and great interactivity, but it is a game with many HOS and lots to do, so it keeps the interest.
It has many interactive HOS and some known and easy mini games.
Music would be good if it were not so repetitive. Ends tiring.
Has much comes and goes but the locations are not far away.
Well, I had fun despite being a game "old fashioned" compared to games released nowadays. Fulfills its role.

Robots, Nostalgia . . . Fun
What can I say. I like this game. It is full of hidden object scenes. While the objects are not difficult to find, you will have at least two objects that will require interaction which can be challenging.
The setting seems to be in the past. The story is about robots who seem to have taken over the town.
There are mini-games (not difficult), hints fill up quickly, and there is a map, though it does not allow you to jump to areas requiring action. In fact, the map is really useless. There is also a lot of moving back and forth from scene to scene which some might not like.
I played 40 minutes and will most likely purchase the game. I'm all for hidden object games and this one is full of it.
I believe this is a game that some will like and some will not. I recommend that you give it a try and decide for yourself.
