EXCELLENT MAP This is another game that takes you back and forth too much. The only saving grace was the interactive map, which showed where actions needed to be done and allowed you to jump to that location through the map. But opening the map every minute or so in order to get to the next active location was very irritating. Good storyline. There was no bonus chapter. The "extras" included 6 hidden object scenes and 6 minigames to replay, but the hidden object scenes repeated the things that had already been found during the game. I was expecting to be able to "find" all the objects in all the scenes, but that didn't happen. In the 6 scenes, one of them was new, but still that wasn't much of a bonus. I won many achievements during the game and the achievements were part of a stained glass scene, which I thought was new and different and neat. Highlighting different parts of the glass told you what achievement it represented. I expected to see the various parts of the glass light up when I won an achievement, so that at the end the whole scene would be lighten up if I won some or all of the achievements. Didn't happen; none of the glass lighted up at all. Disappointing. The achievements were pretty attainable, not like ones that expect you to never skip a puzzle or never use a hint during the game. I enjoyed the game and the storyline kept me interested. June 22, 2014
Review of Completed Game... I love steam punk type games and this is definitely in that category. The title confused me a bit going into the game but Glass is a woman who is looking for Dr. Ink who got captured and since Ms. Glass adores him, she goes to look for him and learns she needs to defeat a guy bent on destroying the world with a special machine that creates a series of Earthquakes in a place where there usually aren't any! The game is by Artifex Mundi and for them I felt like this is very sloppily done. Words are spelled wrong. Freund for Friend but my friend said in Poland they do say that sometimes as these developers are polish but there were other things like Forgein instead of Foreign and engineneer instead of engineer. Those are tiny things but to pay double for a game and have it have basic spelling errors isn't too great especially when this developer is usually so detailed and put together. This game felt almost sloppy or rushed. There are interactive hidden object scenes and a good amount of puzzles. I found that the puzzles were all pretty doable but there were none that were original in any way. The game has exceptional voice overs though. The woman Ms. Glass has an accent and I found it to be very well done unlike most games that try to do accents. There are about 38 bugs to collect from Dr. Ink's collection. They are mechanical ones like in Fantastic Creations-House of Brass. In fact this game was very much like House of Brass just better done. The main games ends satisfactorily and there is really no need for the bonus chapter. The main game only took me 2 hours and 45 minutes at most and the bonus game which is the prologue to the story showing how Dr. Ink got himself into trouble in the first place was very short as well. Artifex Mundi releases a lot of games that are just standard editions and Im kind of unsure why they felt the need to make this one a collector's edition based on how short everything was. There are achievements as well but I found the achievement room to be confusing. It was stained glass areas and it was hard to tell if I had gotten the achievement or not since the colors didn't really change after. I really rate this game around a 3.5 but I think it is worth rounding up because what this game lacks, it makes up for in the story, characters and the overall fun I had playing the game. I liked finding the mechanical bugs and I liked using my brain to figure out where to use items. I will say there are some interesting ways to use the items in this game. A kite for electricity among other things. Always kept me guessing. The inventory button locks (big issue for me when it doesn't). Puzzles can be reset if you mess up. The strategy guide is done well and you can zoom into the pictures if you need more help. Also, there is a jump map but since you don't really go back and forth throughout locations, you don't really need a jump map. IF you are getting the bugs, you cannot go back after some parts so make sure you get them all. There is one in every location, even if you can't find it, its there! SG gives you a detailed account of where they are. I recommend this game as a CE if its on sale otherwise I don't think its worth the money as its very short. It took me 3.5 hours counting the bonus game if that. The bonus game is a lot of hidden object scenes and busy work so its not needed in terms of closure. For the standard edition, I probably would have rated it differently. I definitely recommend the standard though as what this game lacks in other areas, it makes up with the fun of it all. I liked playing this game and although it is short, its a game I would play again. December 13, 2013
Try it, then decide! I actually liked this game. Graphics and game play are nice. Voice overs are appropriate for the time and setting and what they say makes sense for a change. Jump map is quite helpful, since you return to areas multiple times. I like talking to the characters for more info and hints. It makes the game more realistic and interesting. HOGs are either silhouettes or "find the part," which can get boring, but it is a nice change, and you have to put things together in order to find the next item. Games are not as easy as you think, although some are. You need to take a little time and think before you move. The only extas I see is the collection of different bugs. They are crafty little devils and move in and behind objects, so pay attention. Not sure what happens when you get them all. Nice SG with clear pictures and instructions. Hint system is quite helpful as well and fills fairly quickly. I finished the first chapter with 22 min to spare. There are a lot of chapters in this one, so it looks to be a fairly long game. I like this game. It is not all that challenging, but it is different and it kept my interest during the demo. I think interacting with the characters did it for me. Going to take advantage of the special today and get this one. Even though I keep saying I'm trying not to buy CE games, I keep doing it. Difference is, now I wait for a special and save a few bucks. As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may not care for this one at all. Thanks for the reviews. August 10, 2013
Could be better I found this to be a great, but towards the end it got real dull. The game had such potential. The music was very well done. Voice over was fine. The mini games were very enjoyable and wished there were more. I did not miss doing the HOS, instead one needed to find picture objects. The map is used and one can jump to the next place. There definitely seemed to be lacking something in the bonus game. It left me scratching my head. August 10, 2013
Fun Game Ok I had read some really negative reviews and there were only two at the time and I have to disagree, this game was entertaining, long enough for me and challenging enough to hold my interest. I had no glitches or faded out graphics, it was bright and clear the whole time. The story was good, although I have played much more challenging games some of the mini games kept me thinking. Overall this is a fun and interesting game for just about any level of player. I give it a thumbs up! August 11, 2013
Very Nice Game Full Demo which was only 30 min. pros: cinamatics were very well done; mouths move when talking nice 2nd installment to the Fantastic Creations: House of Brass i knew something was familiar with that lil picture taking bug! (lol) nice vo's graphics crisp and clear hos are interactive map is interactive achievements cons: continuity of the vo's do not coinside throughout ex. the barmaid has a german type accent but other characters not the other characters i came across only 30 min for demo for some it is a bit wordy (dialogue) -personal thoughts- i liked it idk if it worth being a CE or not and i really do not like being cut short on demo time :/ but game play is nice and i personally really liked this game :) and as far as i could tell nice script for the dialogue. August 10, 2013
good game! I really enjoyed the hour I played. It really has everything - the storyline is very interesting and the puzzles are great. Love it. September 26, 2013
A Nice Enjoyable Game ... Good Graphics, Sound, Effects, Voice & Video Bits ... A Very Enjoyable Game With A Nice Feel Of Being In A Futuristic World Of The Past Powered By Steam ... My Only Real Gripe Is Game Length; And The Bonus Chapter Is Probably The Shortest I Have Seen In A Game For A While ... The Bonus Chapter Is A Prequel, And It Would Be Nice If CE Versions Could Let You Play Prequels Before The Main Game ... Buy It When You See It Going For About SE Price ... That's All It Is Worth For The Extra Content Or Wait For The SE ... August 13, 2013
Clockwork Tales:Of Glass and Ink I liked this game, but I do not believe that it is worth the "collector's edition" tag. The is short and does not require a lot of work to solve the puzzles. I do recommend this game, but when the "non collector's edition" is ready, RJohn August 11, 2013
