Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death Collector's Edition 4.8 5 206 206
Compelling, Clever and Utterly Engrossing This is a cool game. This may be one of the best HOP/Adventure Games I've played in years. The art is gorgeous. Using New Orleans as a setting lets the developers play with characters and especially music in a way that is fresh and entertaining, and, to me, miles ahead of many other developers. Nothing about the game is so hard you can't figure it out without a hint. The objects aren't so small you need a microscope to see them (when you've got an 11" screen, that matters). The voice acting is excellent. I like their character interaction method, and the ability to make choices in the questions you ask (and the answers you receive). This one's really, really worth it. Nice job, Mad Head Games! November 17, 2014
NEW ORLEANS JAZZ TWENTIES TO FIFTIES GOLDEN ERA AMAZING GAME!! If you have a love for Jazz..a love for New Orleans... a love for any of these Decades in America.. twenties thirties or forties... You are likely to Love this game if you love all three you are likely to Really Love it.. What i look for in a Game and this Game has it ALL.. 1)Creative and Interesting STORY that draws me in and keeps me Engaged 2)Fantasy Atmosphere that makes me feel i am IN THE GAME... 3)NO HOS..i Loathe HOS in my Adventure Games.. However if the other elements are there i will be forgiving and IF this game..the HOS are made bearable and even Enjoyable because they are different and interesting and dont make me feel like my Adventure is being continuously interrupted with something i hate and find Irrelevant to the gameplay..... then i am Very Pleased...and this game does just that.. 4)Beautiful Graphics Created by Sincere Talent 5)Beautiful Music that sets the Tone and prevents me from being able to escape the game world even with distractions from my RL environment... 6)and if i am lucky..a game that lingers within my that i think about daily for weeks to that i randomly think about even years later.. one that i have to play again at least once a year because i Miss It...i want to experience it again.... 7)Story has elements that personally interest me.. in this case...American History from the golden era of Jazz.. which i guess ended in the thirties but lingered a bit into the forties and fifties... competing with big band to stay on top as pop and then rock n roll were making their way into the hearts of the youth my mums swiss french family is from New Orleans... my grandaddy spent over half his life in living in the heart of New Orleans...a Big Time City Boy.. i remember trips to New Orleans as a child while i know the Reality of New Orleans.. there is also the fantasy side when one is on holiday there it is Impossible to Recreate it.. Even Disney cannot recreate it without being IN New Orleans.. However the Developers have done a Fabulous Job of creating that feeling within the confines of what is possible The Musical Offerings in this game have a lot to do with it.. This is a game where i can tell a lot of Care Creativity.. Talent Imagination and Great Thought went into this project.. I can see the Developers wanted the Gamer to have a fulfilling experience and they SUCCEEDED... Games are like novels.. you cant whip them out in order to make a buck... you have to actually CREATE Something a bit Magical... and this is what Mad Head has done... And..What a CREATIVE Game it is.. A RADIO STATION ON A STEAMBOAT?! WOW ..BRILLIANT!! Mark Twain would LOVE IT!! Louis Armstrong played on the Mark Twain steamboat at Disneyland in 1962 Disneyland After Dark.. this was such a Brilliant and Creative Idea to present the radio station this way.. also Creative are the HOS... Made tolerable and even fun.. also RELEVANT to game play.. you wont have loads of inventory as many casual games which is another pet peeve of mine.. LOADS of Inventory and you having to run around Everywhere back and forth.. everytime i play a game like that i feel CHEATED.. as if they are simply trying to add Length to the game and the length is not QUALITY its simply me having to go back and forth all the while praying the game will END SOON..(a few popular developers come to mind) i want an ADVENTURE when i pay my hard earned money for some Entertainment.. is that too much to ask??? imo in a True Old School Adventure game .. the inventory is to be used pretty much immediately and this game fits the bill... I own all the Mad Head Games but this is the first time i have actually played one i have now made a note i am going to play the rest of them ASAP... Based on this game i have to say AAA+++ Developers!!! i know some ppl..esp Americans are having hard times atm its all good.. buy the SE or watch daily for BF CE sales... the Bonus Game is a lot of fun and the walkthru is convenient but if all you can afford is the SE buy it without hesitation later on you maybe can afford the CE.. the Bonus Game isnt needed in this case... However Majority of gamers will get More out of this experience than what they pay for in this CE... its Very Good and Many will Replay it ..I KNOW i WILL!! AND..if you are super into New Orleans aswell as Ghosts... i also Recommend Deadtime Stories... October 1, 2014
Fantastic Game ! This had quite a bit of unique games and hidden object scenes. Storyline is great and its a long game !! definitely worth buying June 11, 2014
Wonderful game This was such a wonderful game. The music was sooooo was as if I was ushered back to the Jazz Age. The story line was good but the puzzles and the way the hidden objects were done was very refreshing. I enjoyed playing....THANK YOU!!!! June 7, 2014
WOW! More Games Like This!! This is a terrific game!! And I am so excited by this game - it has everything - wonderful story line, excellent characters who speak in the appropriate tone and accent! And even the music was good. Just terrific! I could not put this game down and hours just whizzed by, it was so good!! I would like more games like this please!! Thank you. May 28, 2014
Wow!! I've been playing HO games for what seems like forever now... this one went above and beyond even the newest iteration of the genre. Wonderful music and setting, inventive puzzles, and a whole new take on the Hidden Object portions of the game. Extremely high quality game. I can't imagine anyone not loving it! May 26, 2014
It's a mad, mad, mad, Mad Head Game winner of the decade! I bought the CE version of this fantastic game and I'm a couple of hours in to it already, and though I don't like giving reviews on a game I haven't completed, I must encourage you, no, I must insist that you buy this game! It's extremely unique in every way. A one of a kind game! I got this gem at a discounted price via Big Fish and let me tell you, it's even worth the full price. If I could rate this game a 10, I would. It's that good. This game is at the top of my list of favorites to be sure. New Orleans, Mardi Gras, jazz, outstanding graphics, unique HOS and gameplay, you name it, it's got it all. So far, all the musicians and songstress have rocked the house! I'm sure I'm in for more of a treat as I listen and play on. Love the VOS, the actors are awesome! You are in for the ride of your lives; speaking of which, you've got your own, personal taxi driver to take you to the various locations. Really cool beans! Love, love, love this game! It is now my favorite! No holds barred! You bet I recommend it. It's such a sheer pleasure to be playing an intelligently written, great sounding game, that's different for a change, such as Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death CE version. Please, please, we need to see more games like this. Incidentally, make sure you read the credits! May 24, 2014
Great game Really excellent! It's nice to see a game with some originality. And this one has plenty. I hope this will get others doing the same. Definitely something that could use a sequel, no? May 23, 2014
bravo! I don't give games 5 stars.....only three so far. This was awesome! BUT, the bonus chapter had nothing to do with the original story. So, I would skip the CE and definitely buy the SE. 2014 May 22, 2014
Best HOG in a loooong time! I don't leave many reviews, but I had to for this game! I loved it! The story, the HO scenes (variety!), morphing objects well done and not a distraction, graphics, music and puzzles... all great. Nice achievements, again not a distraction but fun to get and makes you want to replay to get them all. I highly recommend this game. May 21, 2014
