Echoes of the Past: Royal House of Stone
Royal House of Stone
Good one, I loved it, good story line. I hope they bring part two out to follow on with the story and soon. Good graphics and sound.

Rooms are exactly the same as the Citadels of Time game in series.
I played the Citadels of Time first in the series before this one. The rooms and hallways were all exactly the same as that game.
-HOS were easy for the most part
-Puzzles were easy
-boring; concept/storyline was the same/similar as others in series
-the inventory, menu, hint concept was not desirable. I hated it at the top of the screen instead of the bottom.
-Journal was not very helpful
-Did not like the hint concept; you had to find mirrors in order to gain a hint. Use all hints and dont find mirrors, no hints could be used which is the only way you know where to go next (no arrows for directions, but words).
-No map; you had to go back and forth many times between rooms.
-Game really too short.

really hard game for me
i couldn't have gotten through this game without the walkthrough which i relied on almost all the way through the whole game! hints are increased by finding mirrors, but once you use all the hints they only increase by one at a time. they don't take too long though. there is a journal. i played in the only level i saw. the music on low so i didn't really hear it. there is a small click penalty but it doesn't take long. this an adventure as well as a hidden object game. i really didn't enjoy it as much as the others in the series and it is set up to continue so i hope the next one is better.

It was super simple and short. But ok if you didn't pay for it or at least not the full amount.

Too many creepy crawlies
This has the makings of a great game but I am put off by the animated spiders and bugs crawling everywhere. Not enjoyable at all.

Captivating Well Drawn 1st in Orneon Devs Echoes of the Past Series
Orneon Devs came up with a true winner, ahead of it's time game! Decided to play all 4 Echoes of the Past as I purchased them and never had a chance to get into gameplay.
Although some HO scenes were dark as you are exploring a "Middle Ages" castle, objects were appropriate and discernible and one last object would be used to further gameplay.
Storyline really draws you in and, once there, the artwork is breath taking. Forward to next game play "Echoes of the Past - The Castle of Shadows" where it looks, so far, improvements were made on the lighting! Awesome!
Enjoy! -Mama Mia-

Good First Game of the Echoes of the Past Series
This is the first game in the popular Echoes of the Past series, and it does not disappoint, after all, there are already three follow ups. The fairy tale story centers on the kingdom of Orion. You must help the last prince and lift a curse that has befallen this ancient kingdom. The game is fun to play for all, although the storyline will definitely appeal to children. There are beautiful clear graphics and sound effects a good mix of HO and also many puzzles. Both the hidden objects and puzzles are fun to do, ranging mainly from easy to medium difficulty, with the odd harder puzzle thrown in sometimes. I especially liked the puzzles with locks on doors. A definite winner.

Makes The Original Princess Isabelle Pale In Comparison By Far
Everything that the original Princess Isabelle should've been and that's saying something. Play to find out why...

This game was like "a good book", "hard to put down". I enjoyed it enough to want to try all the other Echoes of the Past games...
Did need to use the Blog Walkthrough at times, especially the 1st time in the kitchen, couldn't get the barrel to move out of the way!! However, after reading all the different comments in the forum, especially Margie B's responses to others with the same frustration, was finally able to continue!
Hats off to Margie B, who, once again, saved the day!
Some negatives: no map to navigate, hint was really only helpful in the HOS.
All in all, very enjoyable! Like I wrote earlier, will now try out the other games in the series.

Just the right mix
I really enjoyed this series. The stories were interesting, mini puzzles good and just enough challenge without being frustrating. I've actually played this and the other Echoes of the Past games more than once!
