Your Brother-In-Law Has Gone Mad! Good news, you have been invited to a resurrection! Bad news, it's your sister! Your brother-in-law is a self taught alchemist who wants to bring his beautiful wife back to life, and wreak havoc on the people who ran him out of his childhood town after a horrible accident claimed her life. The collectors edition has hidden coins and zoo animals, and you can upgrade the panel and bring your animals to life. The hidden object scenes are slightly interactive list finds as well as putting inventory items back into their logical positions in the scene. You have the option to switch to a jigsaw puzzle instead of the hidden object scene. There are lots of mini games such as pulling levers on the right and left side of the bridge until all boards are flat and showing a picture, You will keep a dossier of the different characters you come across and when Emmett accidentally leaves behind his alchemist crucible, you will use it to transform and change certain items as you try to stop Emmett from doing the unthinkable! Enjoy! February 23, 2014
A GREAT GAME! I bought this game after playing just 5 minutes. Good puzzles. HOS are the same but some are all together different than just finding them. Great hint button that tells you where to go next. A most enjoyable game. February 23, 2014
The Lost Hope takes you to the end of your rope.... Wow! This marathon HOPA was a total surprise. It took several hours to complete all the tasks before finally freeing Emmett from the evil green spirit he's possessed with. I am usually not a fan of teleportation maps, but this game almost requires one. There are tons of puzzles, ho's, inventory and travel. Lots of characters to interact with too. My only challenge with the game was that my cursor was a bit sluggish, but maybe I was just impatient. Overall this is a great adventure for the price. February 28, 2014
One of the best SE ever! There are plenty of reviews about the story line, game play, etc., so all I'm going to say is that this was BY FAR the longest standard edition game I've ever played. I usually finish the most difficult games in less than 2 hours and I played this one over a series of days. Definitely value for your money! The game is interesting and well done so the game doesn't seem too long. A super buy in my book. Happy gaming! March 20, 2014
Loved this game The first thing I noticed was the lovely scenes we were going to be involved in. So colourful and intricate. The map moves you around so you don't get lost. There was many places to visit, but all easy to travel to. The HOGs were good and very different as, not only did you have to find objects, but later on you would have to replace them, not where you found them, but where they belonged. The characters were nice. 'our misunderstood Hero' and his little sister who was a very dear little character. I found this game different from so many mainly I think because of the surroundings. The story line was easy to follow, but held my attention. All in all I found it exceptionally good March 8, 2014
Great snow day game! I played this on a snow and was really impressed. It's fun, graphics are good, and I like the different levels of challenge that are true to nature. A lot of the games say 'hardcore' level but are still easy. I like to play the expert level and enjoy the challenge. Great game Bigfish! I definitely recommend this game. February 27, 2014
Real Fun I have played this game without even a break. It is fun and almost as long as a CE. February 26, 2014
STRAIGHTFORWARD GAMEPLAY Lots to do in this adventure. Good balance of HOS and puzzles, but it is mainly an adventure game, so don't expect a ton of HOS or puzzles. Voice overs are very, very good. HOS are list-based and mildly crowded, but very detailed. Puzzles can be substituted for the HOS (like picture puzzles). Mini-game puzzles are widely varied and relatively easy to figure out. You can customize the difficulty or choose one of the 3 preset difficulty levels. Well-developed story. Gameplay is straightforward and the developers put a lot of thought into how the game should progress. Graphics look hand-drawn. Nice game. March 16, 2014
sorry about the sound quality because is so loud and scary but love it March 13, 2014
Hope Floats! First, in terms of value, this is a timely production: for a while now, the only option for The Lost Hope was the Collector?s Edition. It is not a great value proposition. This SE, conversely, is. FUN FACTOR: It's middle of the road. After playing superior games like Stray Souls, Nevertales, Portal of Evil: Stolen Runes, and my longtime favorite, Angelica Weaver: Catch Me When You Can, it's clear this game doesn't occupy the same rarified space. Three stars only, not five. Visual/Sound Quality: The sights and sounds are good. I think the "set design" is adequate. Items are well drawn. Background music is also good, albeit a bit repetitive. The Voice actors are good. While the location of the game is not finally indicated, beyond being in the mountains somewhere, it seems it's in the British Empire for British accents abound. LEVEL OF CHALLENGE: There are two types of HOGs totaling 20 scenes. First, there is the traditional ?list pick? with each having a couple of interactive items. If you opt out of this you can play a JIGSAW puzzle game. Bonus Fun Factor points for this: I was so thrilled with the opportunity I eschewed a couple HOGs to play the jigsaws. The second HOG format requires placing an item in its environment (for instance, putting Skull and Crossbones on a bottle of poison). As an alternative to playing this form of HOG you may choose a Match 3 instead. The HOGs, both types, are of average difficulty. The assortment keeps it interesting. While the HOGs are not junk piles they don't have signs saying "I'm an ACORN" either. The Mini-games are familiar and also total 20 (there are a couple which are not "officially" listed as games but the only thing that keeps them from being a mini-game is that they aren't referred to as such by the developers in the course of play. Call them what you will, they are mini-games. They are fun and in some cases a little more challenging than others of the same type you?ve seen elsewhere. What challenge there is results from the intricacy of the details. Directions are straightforward (not to be taken for granted these days). STORYLINE: You've received a letter from your Brother in-law asking you to visit the town of Reagan where your sister lived and died. Anxious to find out why and how, you visit Emmett. Something is going on in this town and the easy answer that your brother in law is to blame for the strange happenings and several deaths is just a little too easy. So you go to investigate. TO CE or NOT TO SE... ...That is the question. You must decide whether you'll invest in the Collectors Edition or stick to the SE. For your ready reference, the CE includes: A. A Bonus Chapter B. The "Who Cares Assortment" of Wall Papers, Concept Art, and Music C. Re-playable HOGs and puzzles D. Three Collectibles: a) Mythic Creature Statues which you bring to life (transform) with b)Crystals; And, lastly, c) coins which you use to upgrade the scenery. E. 18 unremarkable achievements. The CE "bling," as my friend Just The Facts refers to it, does not warrant the asking price which is more than twice the SE. Stick with the best value proposition on this good, not great, game.
