SPLIT PERSONALITY It's Princess Lerione's 21st Birthday and her world is about to change forever. Lerione's mother, Queen Alura, has just given her an amulet for her coming of age present, and in the blink of an eye, her entire world changes. The princess has just entered the Shadow World, and soon discovers her mother's past is now her future! An evil villain captured Alura during her coming of age, and a brave prince went to the past to alter the course of events, which prevented Alura from becoming a witch. Now the princess must face many challenges in a world filled with dark magic, she must choose her own path using Light Magic, or Dark Magic, either decision will leave an everlasting imprint on her soul! The Shadow World is a world of magic, so naturally, Princess Lerione receives a Magic Ball to rid the world of unfriendly Shadow World dwellers. Each time it's used you'll have to choose whether to use Light magic which rids the dwellers without harm, or Dark magic which rids them for good (but in a bad way I suppose) The Royal Wizard let's you borrow his feline counterpart, Sebastian who helps you out by retrieving items only a talking cat can get to. Many of the inventory items have plus signs indicating further action is required before the item can be used, and many of those actions are small puzzles to solve. There are 26 Morphing Objects to discover and 11 Collectible Figurines with bios, throughout your adventure. The graphics are fantastic, and there's all kinds of creatures and things that go bump in the night, nothing really scary, but it's a nice change of pace. The Hidden Object Puzzles are pretty creative, for example, one HOP has an organ playing skeleton that has you repeating color coded sequences on the organ keys, then throws out pictures of items to find in several stages, between stages you will find his accessories and place them appropriately. There are also interactive list finds with muzzles to solve, silhouetted shape finds, story item finds and even a HOP using a magic revealing lens that shows invisible items. The Mini Games are just plain ole fun, and in abundance. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Navigate your boat using arrows to avoid obstacles. 2) Tap planks to form stairs, clicking on one plank affects others. 3) Swap tiles to form a complete image for three different images. 4) Change the position of the rabbit on the right to match the rabbit on the left. 5) Carve a bucket out of a pumpkin by dragging the knife along the lines. 6) Put the flowers on the wreath correctly. 7) Hang the beads above the bed according to the clues shown. This Collector's Edition has 26 Morphing Objects, 11 Collectible Figurines, 8 Music Soundtracks, 8 Wallpapers, 7 Concept Art pictures, VG Team pictures, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

BEYOND THE SHADOWS IS AMAZING You play the game as Princess Lerione who has just reached that magical 21st birthday. As a special gift her mother, Queen Alura, gives her a special amulet with the admonishment to never take it off. Your carriage is soon stopped by a young boy who pleads for your help but as soon as you leave the carriage you realize that things have definitely changed and you are whisked away to the Shadow World ? a kingdom that is the exact opposite of all you know and love in your own kingdom. Will you be able to navigate through the perils in your path and return to your home and those you love? The graphics are gorgeous and the Shadow World is created to perfection. I love the characters that I encountered in the game. The voiceovers are terrific and Sebastian is awesome with his drawn out voice that conveys just the right touch of imperiousness. There is a custom mode included in the game options where hints and mini-game skips can be set in a range of 15 ? 275 seconds. There is an interactive, transporter type map to help you navigate the game and, oh yes, you do have a rascally old feline helper. You also acquire a magic ball that will help you deal with any evil characters who you meet in the Shadow World. The HOPS are some of the best I have seen in HOPA games and they are very creative. I loved a HOP scene with an old skeleton that had me laughing out loud. The team that created this game is so talented and imaginative that I love it. There are many HOPS in the game and the ones I played were very interactive. IMHO, this game has some of the best HOPS I have seen in ages. The mini-games are terrific as well although some are very easy. The CE version of the game includes collectibles, morphing objects, achievements, bonus chapter, Strategy Guide, music, wallpapers, concept art, Shadow World Dwellers, and pictures of the development team (something I love because I enjoy seeing the creative genius behind a game). Love Chronicles has never been one of my favorite series but Beyond the Shadows seems to be a bit improved from the others. The game is creative and it is not always glaringly apparent what needs to be done and where to move forward in the game. As often as I play these games, I did find that I had to use the hint button more than once because I couldn?t figure out where to go next. It is easy to miss little details that will help you through your adventure so be sure to pay attention to everything. Another think I enjoy about the game is that it is one of choices. At first glance I didn?t think I would like this game but looks can be deceiving and as I jumped into the story, I enjoyed it quite a bit more than I thought I would. Beyond the Shadows is a magical game and one that I heartily recommend that you try. Give it a chance because the game, although a bit slow at first, does pick up the pace. We all have different tastes when it comes to HOPA games so please try the demo to see if this is a game you will enjoy. April 9, 2016
Love It!!! Just started this game and what a hoot and a half!! Love the characters, especially the cat and the graphics are good! The HOS are really some of the best with some fun little surprises thrown in. (dancing and singing skeletons, anyone!) and I'm having a hard time stopping playing the game. Enjoy!!! April 9, 2016
This is the 5th Love Chronicle...and I can't remember any of the earlier chapters When I saw the title of Love Chronicles my initial thought is this would be a "romance novel " sort of game. Was I ever wrong!! Beyond the Shadows is a marvelous fantasy game. I must admit I am often a total sucker for the fantasy genre. I own all of the Awakenings, all of the Dark Parables and most of the rest that fall into the realm of pure fantasy. This Love Chronicle has me over the moon, it's that good. A princess named Lerione is given an amulet on her 21st birthday by her mother, the Queen Alura. Lerione is told that she must don the amulet and never to remove it. Lerione is then encouraged by an elf-like being to help remove some muck and weeds from a water source that is crippling his village. Turns out the elf is is an evil henchman of a Shadow World queen and Lerione is brought into that world. She then meets some old man with branches growing out of his head!! He becomes convinced Lerione is the key to defeating the shadow world evil and restoring order to their realm. We are given a cat helper ( Sebastian ). Most of the game assistants are lame. This kitty is super cool in an arrogant cat-like manner. He gets soaked to the skin, dirtied by soot and still remains quite aloof as all cats manage to do. As the game progresses, and I have yet only completed the demo, we realize something dire will occur to Lerione at the demo end. What got me hooked with this fine offering from Vendel Games is the outstanding drawing, the life like characters, and most importantly some of the best hidden object segments and puzzles to come down the pike in a very long time. The initial HO scene is a long one with lots of interactivity and a good deal of challenge to successfully complete it. This turns out to be a harbinger of stellar things to come. I know there are some morphs to change but I only did one in the demo. If there are collectibles, I'm unaware because I got so wrapped up in the game to even think about them. Got to end this and buy the game. At year's end Beyond the Shadows may very well be a contender for game of the year. FANTASTIC!! April 9, 2016
WOWZER!! Best game award for sure. Graphics - fabulous; Game play - INCREDIBLE. Surprises everywhere, ingenuity in every corner, and talk about creativity... Love Chronicles: Beyond the Shadows has it all. I always buy games by this developer, usually without even playing the demo or watching the trailer. The teams are that good. April 9, 2016
GOTTA HAVE THIS GAME Just finished the try me for this game and I LOVE THIS GAME. This is part of a series and the story line is a great continuation. I have played hundreds of HO games (that's all I play) and this one is a WINNER. It has great sound effects and voices. Visually it is stunning it is so well drawn. Lots to do and you have to think about it to figure out what to do next. The hint button is great and you can travel using it. The HO's are really good and inter-active. This is a game you will love. It will give you a challenge and you will have a ton of fun playing. Of course, I am going to say, do the try me first and see if you don't agree. I am going to go now and purchase this game. Can't wait. Enjoy! April 9, 2016
DOUBLE TROUBLE Have not reviewed for a very long time but really loved this game and will get this one. Haven't bought a game for a long time either. But since I had a lot of fun with this one I will be getting it. The Visuals and Sound quality were outstanding and I liked the Storyline with this one. I recommend this game for players that like this type of game. April 9, 2016
Love Chronicles 5 delivers an exceptional Fantasy Adventure! Vendel developers have created another excellent edition to this popular series, it may be their best in the series so far. It?s Love Chronicles 5: Beyond the Shadows Collector?s Edition and in it you will play as Queen Alura?s daughter, Princess Lerione! Just as before, Princess Lerione is kidnapped. This time she is pulled into the Shadow World. But now Princess Lerione has just had her 21st birthday and can take care of herself! With the powerful magical artifact given to her by her Mother and mentor, and the guidance of the wise wizard Lucio, Lerione can find a way home by herself! But darkness is tempting her. Princess Lerione drawn into the shadow world receives an offer to determine the fate of two worlds, using her artifact for good or for evil. This is the best feature of the game, for you can eliminate your adversary by dispersing Light Magic or Dark Magic, the choice is yours. With it, you will determine the ultimate fate of the worlds of Light and Shadow! Will you stand with the forces or light, or fall prey to the darkness lurking within, as your mother once did? Fans will find out in this spine-tingling hidden object puzzle adventure! I thought the graphics and the voice overs, and the sound/SFX merits at 4/5 rating but the story is also very compelling. Beginners and Expert players can enjoy this continuing saga. I hope Vendel continues producing this series with quality effects and engaging storylines.... April 11, 2016
The Snotty Little Game Snotty little game with its snotty little critter's who throw things at you. lol. Runner up for game of the award. They put some thought into this one. At first I thought oh a creepy game in fairy land, but then some of the things that went on and had a chuckle or two or three. HO's were different in some aspects and I liked it. Critter action. My helper has to be the laziest in the world and clumsy too. Like all the character. Nice play on the bones. Good jump map and some morphing objects. There were some parts of the game I felt miss placed but the game was so entertaining with some charm to it that I did not mind the slight bumpiness of game play. Must go on the To Buy List.

HAPPY 21ST BIRTHDAY! CELEBRATE WITH AN ALL EXPENSE-PAID SURPRISE TRIP TO THE SHADOW KINGDOM 5 CHAPTERS PLUS A BONUS CHAPTER OVERVIEW: Happy 21st Birthday! Instead of going out for a night on the town with friends, you, as Princess Lerione, will be celebrating it on a long-prophesized trip to the Shadow World! What secrets has your mother been hiding from you? After receiving an amulet from your mother, you are whisked away to find out hidden secrets about your mother and fulfill your role an ancient prophecy. I LOVE this game even with the ?helper? cat, Sebastian. I hate helper games; however, Sebastian is actually a very cool cat ? a chubby little hellion with a big smile and a big attitude to match. Like most cats, he just sleeps and purrs at the corner of your screen if you click on him. He is only used three times in the demo and for some of the demo he ?leaves? (probably to get away from you). The game is very creative. The graphics are colorful and the characters have a cartoon-like appearance. To add to the flavor of the game, this game is seasoned with a few humorous moments. I loved the humorous ?Dancing with the Skeletons,? sequence with skeletons singing about unrequited love and dancing for you. So funny! There are more puzzles than HOP scenes and all of the puzzles I played in the demo are easy. However, both are innovative in design. The inventory is puzzle-like. You receive a magic crystal ball giving you magical abilities which you can use on the evil characters in the Shadow World. You also have two options in using your crystal ball ? one for light (good) magic and the other for dark (evil) magic. The consequences for the characters differs as to whether you use light or dark magic. Using dark magic produces some rather hilarious results on some of the characters. I would opt for dark magic to see some funny results! HOP SCENES: They are creatively designed and require quite a bit of interaction within the scenes. Some of the scenes also include puzzles. They are slightly longer than most HOP scenes, requiring a series of actions within the scenes. They include lists of items, and silhouette. However, in one HOP scene there is a matching puzzle. MINI-GAMES: They are numerous, easy, but well-crafted. They include a maze puzzle, switch puzzles, a sequence puzzle, a Simon Says puzzles, a matching puzzle, and a manual dexterity puzzle. In one of the puzzles you play, you play it after you finish a HOP scene in which you collect items used in the puzzle. LEVELS: 4 settings including customized (No names given to them) Hints and Skips ? 15 to 275 seconds EXTRAS: Map is provided as you play the game You receive a ball of energy which gives you the option to use either light or dark magic with differing outcomes! Animal helper ? Sebastian the Cat ? a chubby little fur ball with an attitude! Collect 9 figurines 26 Morphing objects: Once collected - receive 9 cards about denizens of the Shadow World Strategy guide - 33 pages 8 Musical selections, 8 Wallpapers, Art HERE ARE THE DETAILS (SPOILERS) FOR THOSE WANT MORE INFORMATION ON THE HOP SCENES AND MINI-GAMES: HOP SCENES: A.
