Otherworld: Shades of Fall
MAGICAL WORLD OF FEYS AND CREATURES
A continuing story of Fiona and the Storm Cat saving the world from the evil Shade, who wants a winter wonderland 24/365. Game offers a lot: challenging puzzles, incredible color, beautiful animation, danger and evil vs. beauty and stunning graphics in a magical setting. The graphics and colors are so gorgeous that you just want to touch everything (and you can without penalty) to see what they are or what they do.
HOS are quite different ? no crowded junk piles, no finding a list of objects which you don?t need. They are finding similar worked into an item already in the world (such as finding a number of crowns, fey characters and snowflakes on Shade?s eternal prison i.e., tomb). Flawless gameplay. The story is interesting ? you don?t know where it will take you next. Extremely helpful Magic Storm Cat, who will show you where you should go or what you should do if you are stuck. The Otherworld games are near perfect and this one is no exception.

A good challenge!
I have only just used up my trial hour, and I WILL be buying this game! Even in casual mode, this game is quite challenging and fun. I was surprised by some of the mini-games being quite different, with a twist on the usual, even the HOs. The graphics are very good, and I found it a smooth play. Nice background music, too, without it being annoying (as some can be). You don't waste a lot of time with story sequences, either, and I love that you can control the speed you go through them (I'm a fast reader and tend to get annoyed with slow voiceovers). The story is a little weak, but the game play is so much fun, I don't really care!

This game is amazing. Finally a hidden object game that is different than the hundreds of the HO games that are clones of each other. I should know as I have played hundred of others that are all the same. Thank you to whomever made this unique game.

This was such fun all around and I had a great time. I cannot think of much that could improve on this game other than that I could have played on and on.
This series stays true to it's initial calling and gets more polished as it progresses.
Well done, devs.

Loved this game!
Very interesting game. It kept my interest and the mini games were very different. Many different scenes to interact in and colors and graphics were nice. I wish I had purchased the CC of the game.

The Shade Has Escaped His Perpetual Prison!
For those of you who haven't played Otherworld, a quick breakdown: You purchased an old house and stumbled upon another world full of Fay Creatures some good some evil! You save Fiona from the evil Shade and gain sight into this magical dimension. Now fast forward to present and the Shade has escaped from the prison that the Fay Elders put him in and he has an evil sidekick, the Huntsman, who turns Fiona into stone. You lose your "sight" and have to recharge Fiona's magical locket in order to gain temporary visions. There aren't any real HOS but there are scenes where you find a certain number of Fay creatures, snowflakes crowns and even crystals and the are very interactive. You might have to turn knobs to move a stones position to reveal these creatures or use a pickax to open up crevices. There are mini games such as re-creating a face on a tree by clicking on various item on the tree to change them, but several other items change as well. There are also match pairs of items and puzzles that require you to finish painting a plaque by using the clues that are already there. This is a fairy tale themed adventure with beautiful yet un-realistic creatures with colorful flowers and glowing crystals. I think this version is a better buy unles you want to search for hidden fay dragons so enjoy!
