Dark Dimensions: City of Ash
No splashes for ashes
I truly wanted to like this game. The story seemed unusual, but it was the typical "save us from evil"....only done poorly. I cannot remember if I have played Dark Dimension games before, but if this was an improvement as some have said.....enjoy the demo.
The story line kept going over and over with childish scrawls from Audrey (SUPER VOLUNTEER of the town) to her mother begging her misguided father to stop mining. This was done exactly the same at least three times. It seemed to be a misconnect as if she was a child, but other times a responsible adult???? I still don't know.
The mini games were glitchy....no direction or clues. Some of the wording in the game was as if it were lost in translation.
I finished the game and I cannot even remember how it ended. That should speak volumes. Oh...the lady in the picture above?.....never saw her unless she was a ghost!
Sorry to say this one wasn't for me.

This was an okay game. Short but bright with pretty graphics. It had the standard..no this can't be..demise of the bad guy at the end. Peeve for me was no directions for the mini games at all. I did manage to figure them out after some trial and error but still. You are called to the usual deserted town to figure out what happened and follow notes and a couple of ash ghosts to all the clues. Mix of HO's with some lists and some silhouettes. I liked this one ..it was fine for what it was. A short, pretty looking. rather average game with nice music.

Review based on completed game in casual mode.
Animation/VOS - Okay.
IHOS - Fairly clear. Small to larger objects. Repeated locations. Lists and shapes.
Random Click Penalty - None.
Hint - Moderate charge. Gives clues and directions.
Map - Does transport but I found the hint to be easier.
Puzzles/Mini-Games - Many unique varieties rather than the usual sliders, rings, etc. Fast skip.
Diary - Contains story, photos, clues, etc. Also two short stories from the past.
I could not immerse myself in this game. I began to lose interest about half way through but decided to finish it. To me, it's not game that's a "must have". Great deal of traveling to do.

Played demo and decided to buy the game because of the ad offering 50% all weekend. Never got prompted for coupon code so I ended up paying full price. Installed full game and then played for just over an hour and the game was finished. Feeling totally ripped off. Will not buy another game again until I read the reviews from others. Ruined my day!
