Dark Dimensions: Somber Song 4.1 5 16 16
The Sound Of Smoke Seven children perished in a music school fire last year, and the Dark Dimensions fog has the town in panic mode once again. All the signs are pointing to foul play, is the music teacher responsible, or perhaps that innocent young man who perished after saving his friend Lydia, perhaps he isn't so innocent! You will need to find a way to break past the black fog and break into this now abandoned (or is it?) school of music and find the truth and save Lydia before it's too late! This is a top notch hidden object game with several gadgets to tinker with and lot's of inventory items to recover. All the bells and whistles of the CE have vanished in this SE but it doesn't matter, the game has enough backbone to stand alone. The hidden object games are interactive progressive list finds. You find the first item listed in white such as an oven mitt. Then you use the oven mitt on the oven door to pull out a loaf of bread, you use the bread crumbs to feed the bird and so forth. The only complaint I have is the fact that the HOS double up on the scenes. Even though they are different interactions, it's still boring to do a second game there soon after you just finished a game there. The mini games seem fairly easy, although some require more patients than others. For instance the first mini game required you to turn tiles with different colored wires to connect the circuits from top to bottom. This is very easy to figure out. Then you need to open the gate by clicking on several circular paths to make different shapes move along these paths until they get to the matching shaped slot. This one's certainly doable, just a little more time consuming. If you love the creepy genres and the ability to talk to the dearly departed, then you're going to love this game, enjoy!

AWESOME Special effects (especially the swirling mist), music (suspenseful where appropriate) and sound effects are awesome and fit the storyline in the correct place. Color palettes and graphics are terrific. Well developed storyline. Map has active objectives noted. Good balance of HOS to puzzles. Progressive interactive HOS are moderately crowded and objects are detailed sufficiently to find objects. You have to use each object found on another item to progress through the HOS. Puzzles are relatively easy to figure out for an experienced player, but may take a little thinking (okay, maybe a lot) for the novice. Outstanding production values and easy game flow. Nonlinear and a lot of fun to play. April 11, 2014
Great Fun, Great Challenge, Great Story! BASED ON COMPLETED STANDARD EDITION GAME I absolutely loved this game when I trialled the CE, so of course, when the SE came out, I had to buy it immediately! My opinion remains the same after completion: This is the best Dark Dimensions game (and the best from Daily Magic) ever! The story is great in my opinion. It was strong all the way through. It started off wonderfully and brought you right in to the action from the get-go. The opening cutscene got me in to the game, and if a story does that, you can tell it's going to be a good one. This one certainly was! The story was great and exciting all the way up to the end of the demo. It ended on a great note, so of course, I had to continue. Most stories tend to decline slightly after the demo, but this one kept going at the pace it had set earlier in the game. It had its fair share of twists and turns and was really enjoyable overall. I must express my absolute LOVE for the ending! It really surprised me, but it was wonderful! I was so happy at how it panned out. No wonder they say everyone loves a happy ending! The ending is also 100% conclusive, so there's no need for the bonus chapter. If I had to criticise one thing about the story, it would be that some parts of it were really confusing. For example, until halfway through the story, I wasn't sure if Lydia was good or evil. I was also confused as to who was related to who in some parts of the game. Overall, it was an excellent story. I loved it from beginning to end. I have to commend the developers on their gameplay. It's so good! This developer is known for jazzing up their HOS and they have done so again with this one. They've actually made the HOS a bit difficult for a change! The HOS were fun, VERY challenging (I had to use the hint multiple times) and just all-around awesome. The HOS all come in the one form- a very interactive HOS. Every item needs to be used on something to get another item. This continues on until you get your last item- the one to go in your inventory. I absolutely loved these. But, truth be told, I did begin to tire of the HOS a little past halfway through the game. There are A LOT of HOS in the game. That being said, I was still happy. There are not many puzzles in this game, which may please HOS lovers. There are definitely more HOS than puzzles. The puzzles were fun to attempt, and were a mix of hard and easy. I had to skip a few, but others I could solve. This proved to me that this developer catered for puzzle players of all skill levels. I commend them on this. The ratio of HOS:puzzles is a bit off; there are a lot more HOS than puzzles in this game, which may not sit well with those who like puzzles. Other than the jazzed up HOS, this is your normal HOPA with no animal helpers or any other fancy new features. I found this to be nice. However, I don't think I'll recommend this to beginners, seeing as the HOS have been changed a bit and the game itself is actually quite challenging. I must mention that the diary, which was a brilliant feature in the last DD game (City of Ash) was missing in this one. This was a bit sad for me as I often rely on the diary to remember key elements of the story. I hope this developer learns from their mistake and includes a diary in their next game. It may not seem important, but it actually is! The graphics were great. They were drawn with a lot of detail and with some great colours. The art is wonderful, as are the character designs. Every scene is clear and drawn well. The voice-overs are standard. I have no issue. FEATURES 3 modes of difficulty: Casual, Advanced and Hard. Differences are the usual (hint/skip charge, sparkles, etc.). Hint/Skip- Both recharge at a reasonable speed for the difficulty I selected. Hint is helpful outside HOS. Map- The map is interactive and is quite helpful. It lets you know where your active tasks are. I used it quite often. Re-watch cutscenes- Cutscenes can be re-watched. They are accessible by clicking on the map. WHAT DO I MISS OUT ON IF I BUY THE SE? Bonus Chapter- not needed. Game ends 100% conclusively. Strategy Guide- helpful for puzzles. I did have to use the walkthrough a couple of times in the game. Collectible music sheet scraps (30- 3 scraps x 10 sheets)- Once all are collected, Match-3 levels are unlocked. Flashbacks- available after collecting all three scraps for one page. Can be viewed outside of the game. Wallpaper Music Developer Diary- pictures of developers making the game Concept Art WHICH IS THE BETTER BUY? I bought the SE and I was quite happy with it. There wasn't anything in the CE that prompted me to buy. The bonus chapter is not needed and you can access a walkthrough for free online. I'd definitely say the SE is the better buy. Overall, I can find very little to fault about this game. The only major problem for me was the exclusion of the diary and the confusing parts of the storyline. As I said in the CE review, this is the best game by the developer and really is a step up from previous games. So I see no other alternative than to give this game 5 stars. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'd advise you to be careful if you're a beginner- the game was quite challenging. I reckon the rest of you will love this! ON THE GAME LENGTH I don't time my gameplay, but I estimate this to be 3- 3 hours on Casual mode. April 30, 2014
Lots of Interactive Hidden Object Scenes I really liked this game a lot. A lot of folks have not really liked the story, well, aren't all of these alike? They are all slightly occultish, some dark spirit trying to steal children, family, etc, a tragedy, and some sort of detective trying to solve the problem? It's nice when a game breaks that mold, but that's not the case here. So what did I like about it? Nice clean gameplay, great graphics, and I love interactive hidden object scenes. There are a lot of these. You know, where you find one object, and then use that to find another, until you find the final object. Also, you could change the difficulty midgame which I often do to escape clicking penalties. The graphics were wonderfully clear and quite beautiful, and this game made you "jump" a little - not too much, I don't like being scared out of my skin - so it was just the right amount of fun. Puzzles were mostly easy difficulty, with just a few harder. What I didn't like - there were three difficulties, and if you wanted to map to give you any info, you had to choose the easiest. Easiest left those game ruining sparkles all over everything. I don't mind the HOGs being marked by sparkles, but to have everything marked out ruins the game. But all in all, I liked this better than many other games out lately, many of which people have raved about. It had a very good length also. I always appreciate a good length, gives a good value. It did have a somewhat abrupt ending - left me confused as to what actually was going on but if you are looking to these games for a good well written story you are looking in the wrong place anyway. They are mostly all repetitious, somewhat silly with over the top occult overtones but everyone here knows that. This one's about a mother whose child's been stolen by a demonic presence - and I probably could have put that in my last five reviews! Really enjoyed playing this, though. April 16, 2014
Creepy Christmastime game This game is FREAKY! It gives a creepy vibe to the holiday season. Dark smoke going around possessing toys, statues, and other inanimate objects. I mean, come on, that is a perfect combo of cool and scary. I LOVE THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! June 6, 2014
Wishing I had shelled out for the CE version I enjoyed these unusual HO scenes, to get one item you use another item and each is dependent on another, cool beans. I only wish BF had a plan for buying into the CE version after completing the SE. April 30, 2014
Great continuation of the Dark Dimensions series! I'm one of those players who loves a great plot, and Somber Song did not disappoint. The visuals and graphics were fantastic as well, and made you feel like you were truly immersed in the game. I was totally hooked early, and stayed up way too late to finish the story! April 18, 2014
great game !!!! I really enjoyed this game. Lots of fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! April 11, 2014
rewarding a great game **********would girve more stars but they only do up to 5. :) April 11, 2014
Somber Is Not The Same Old Song Setting: After a recent tragedy, a fire at a music school where several children were killed, a young girl who was the lone survivor comes running to you to help her escape the dark cloud pursuing her. What stands out in this game is the hidden object scenes. They are cleverly done in a manner where you progressively find one object and perform an action in order to reveal another. While we have seen these before, the ones in this game are particularly well done - you actually must think to complete them. The same cannot be said for the puzzles which are far easier and require little thought. The drawing is nicely done depicting a not-so-small town in the winter season. And it takes place in modern times (the fire is said to have occurred in 2011). Nevertheless, the artists could not resist drawing some ancient looking keys (sigh). However, the keys do turn without an extra click, so that is a plus. Another nice touch is (semi-spoiler alert): a cat you find under your car early in the game, you later see on a bulletin board posted as a Lost Kitty, named "Mr. Snuggles". Cute. I hate to nitpick (or do I?), but during the demo, the teacher's name is spelled both as "Mayer" and "Mayers" in various places. A little quality control please. The CE version has collectible sheets of music, or rather fragments of sheets. These require several clicks to collect, which becomes a little annoying after the first few. They are not really hidden either so not much of a challenge to find. I found the demo interesting to play all the way to the end, mostly due to the hidden object scenes, although I hope the rest of the game is not just following around after a black cloud of smoke. That was starting to get old. Definitely a game that can get you "fired up." April 11, 2014
