France, 15th Century...

Michel de Nostradamus, Europe's most famous prophet, receives a strange letter from his old friend, Gregory, begging him to come see him as fast as he can. Once he arrives, Nostradamus discovers that a spell has been cast over his friend's home by evil spirits.

After performing an alchemistic ritual to free the home from the evil spell, Nostradamus has a vision that four horsemen will come to wreak havoc on Earth. Wars, famine, plagues and many other catastrophes will be the fruits of these Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Willing to do whatever it takes to prevent this apocalyptic vision from coming true, Nostradamus wages a desperate battle against the forces of evil!

Nostradamus: The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse is rated 1.5 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from CALLING ALL EXPERTS - CHALLENGING ADVENTURE GAME with 1600 x 900 resolution adjustability Deeply relaxing, excellent artwork and music - THANKS! Immerse yourself in nature and different seasons. This game falls firming within the category of CHALLENGING, ADVENTURE game. YOU MUST SCAN ENTIRE SCENES with your cursor. This is NOT for beginners. You should expect some form of challenge if you play this. The puzzles aren't that difficult. IF this style of game is what you're looking for, you'll have tons of fun; if not, you won't. By the way, there are some HOPS in this too. The puzzles are easy to medium. Although the format to use items from the inventory is click-and-drag, this is more than made up for by the BEAUTIFUL 1600 x 900 scenes. You'll explore a dark, wooded, foreboding forest, barren and dry (make sure you set computer brightness to max here!!), but will soon move onto lush woodland with pools and water, lush, delicate blooms and carpets of moss. Beautiful detail on 1600 x 900 resolution! Mountains, volcanic activity and battlefield with sunset behind the monastry follow (got stuck on this bit Ch 5!). ***"Black bar tips" though, cannot be disabled (occur as comments made by Nostradamus). ***Does not descend into horror. When you've played umpteenth games, you start to crave not to be led, so you can go off exploring on your own! So I'm very grateful for a game like this one! (3D motion often makes me nauseous, and I can't play them for long), but this type I CAN! GRAPHICS - Adjustable to 1600 x 900. Although the first chapter does start off dark,, the remaining chapters are NOT dark. I think if you are lucky enough to have any kind of gaming computer with extra brightness, you will be ok. HOPS: SKIPPABLE! Wordlist and silhouettes, occur as more than 1 wordlist at a time. First 4 chapters contained 9 HOPS. PUZZLES: All skippable. Occur pretty frequently. Are pretty easy, but enjoyable. SOUNDS – ONLY 1 adjustment for everything MAP: NO MAP, but game is separated by chapter. NAVIGATIONS (especially for Newbies to adventure): **** Hover your mouse around the edges to see which direction you can move in, sometimes it's up, down or sideways. But the movement is smooth and static not as in a 3D game (3D games usually make me nauseous after a short while; I'm so glad there are games like this one!!!!). **** Look for changes in your cursor to indicate somethings to be done! ****Double-click the speech to hasten it along. DIFFICULTY SETTINGS – 3 AND INTERCHANGEABLE HINT: Guides and leads. On "Difficult" You'll get 4 chances to take you to where you want to go, before it recharges again. INVENTORY – NOT lockable. Double clicking on it is necessary to open up a further "plus-items" combiner (it'll make sense when you do it). CHARACTERS: Minimal interaction. NO VOICEOVER, NO LIP MOVEMENTS. You read. Nostradamus is your companion in that he will appear head and shoulders, in the lower left when you click on something to tell you what it is. Yeah, a bit excessive, but hey, no game is perfect. Double-clicking the speech will force the dialogue it to move on. ************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** SPOILER ALERT for the ELUSIVE CONVEX MIRROR--see below********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** ELUSIVE CONVEX MIRROR***********************************************If you have trouble finding the convex mirror. Hint- it is BEHIND the 2-drawer cabinet. You have to keep clicking, swing your mouse around, and the whole thing swings around. ( Note to the developers- Thanks for this wonderful game! Next time can we lure and remove any creatures instead of bludgeoning them? Well at least it was done comically and not in a realistic way, and only done on one occasion; at least up until Ch 5 anyway, at which point I got stuck! )

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ignore the reviews, play the game! I have played most of the games on Big Fish. I rarely review, unless something is exceptional, or unusual, and in danger of being overlooked. In this case, the game is good, perhaps not exceptional, but certainly not deserving of the poor reviews. I played the game in it's entirety and found it most entertaining. There is no walkthrough that I found, nor do the hints provide exact clues, so it can be challenging. Overall, a good game and a wonderful usage of a "free game" code.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does Not Deserve Such Negative Reviews! I played the entire demo and enjoyed every minute of it! Yes, the game had dark scenes...it was night, the house was dark, lit only by sparse candles and the darkness, IMO, depicted the storyline's shroud of evil. Why does every game have to be shining under a huge spotlight? And why jump to unfair conclusions, because a couple of things just aren't appealing? I don't feel it is fair, even if my opinion of this game puts me alone or in the minority. So, I found the game enjoyable. I had no problem with any part of it. As soon as Nostradamus arrived at Gregory's house there was plenty to do. The game mechanics were very different and took some getting use to and slowed me down, but getting past that it proved to be entertaining. I was mixing a potion in the alchemist lab in Gregory's house when my demo ended. So my info will not be lengthy. Nostradamus comes to his friend's aid, to help free his home from an evil spell. Once he arrives there are many areas to search, tasks to perform and ingredients to mix for potions. An apocalyptic vision is becoming more vivid and the reality of it is getting too close for comfort. This requires much work to be done to defeat the forces of evil. If not, there is a very grim future at hand. There are some interesting things that the items in the inventory are used for along the way, some start at the game's beginning. Not spectacular, just interesting. I loved the HOGs, they were quite challenging, but skippable. I loved that you can zoom in on them using your mouse wheel and it really helped for spotting some of the smaller items. The scenes were kind of dark but they posed no problem for me and I only used the hint once. The puzzles were really good, I had several of them. They were skippable, too. They were different and not too difficult. At the end of one of the HOPs, all the items for the potion were brought up from the inventory and its function was described. I liked that feature...makes it easier to mix the ingredients properly. Have never seen that in any other game. The inventory items were quite small. Using them was a little tricky, much different than other games. Can't explain, how stuff works in the game, it will just require patience and really should not be a hindering factor. Also the inventory is always hidden out of sight, to view it just tap the top of its frame. I thought the graphics were very good. They were not extremely small to me and nothing was grainy or foggy or out of focus or anything like that on my computer. I felt the colors were appropriate for the time represented in the story. The 2 characters in the demo looked good. There is a volume control in the options setting for those who want to get rid of the music which one reviewer claimed could not be turned off. I just turned it way down and used my external speaker if I needed to hear dialogue clearly. But there was SO LITTLE of it, you would not miss a thing if you turned volume completely off. I think I recall written dialogue all through the demo anyway. So, my overall thoughts on this game are....it isn't a top ten, there's no over the top plot, no attractive characters. But the demo showed me good puzzles and HOGs, it was an interesting storyline which I think may develop into a pretty good game. I will purchase with today's BOGO sale and hopefully enjoy my choice. Sometimes I think we just have to take a chance. And, honestly, some of my choices have been real duds! But it is just a game after all and speaking for myself, I'll get over any bad choice I make. God Bless....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I do like it. Based on Demo. I agree with others on this review. It is old and yes there are a couple (in the demo) hidden objects that you have to complete 3 times before you get the prize which is a little frustrating. However on the plus side. There are no bright shiny colors with cute animals or assistants. Like the old game you have to find your way around and figure most out for yourself. The hints are limited (I played the second option-not the easiest or hardest) so you have to make sure you really need hints. I would like this game better if it was upgraded to more current but I still like most of the old school games because they are more challenging and not as cutesy and fluffy which it seems they have become. I will still consider purchasing this game just because it does present a challenge. I did not rate sound because I do not use my speakers for games.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ummmmm, I don't get it! Usually I try my fair share of hidden games and they do flow along, but this one I don't know...Okay its dark most mysteries are, I can deal with that, but it is so labor intensive just to get through a couple of mini-games and then I got frustrated with the game. It grabbed me at first with the title...Yeahhhh Nostradamus and the apocalypse rolled into one, but alas poor horsemen I knew them naught!!! I guess if you can get through 30 mins of the game your doing well, but as for my taste it was bittersweet. Nope not my cup of tea.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from There are options, but it's still bad. I found out there are options to lower the volume, and zoom in to see the graphics if you read the tutorials offered.(to zoom, you MUST have a mouse with a scroll wheel to zoom)...HOWEVER...the graphics are truly dark and terrible. I wonder if this is the developers first game? It is very rudimentary. I even put 4 'bars' on the "Level of Challenge indicater because it is a headscratcher to figure out what you're supposed to do or look for. (hint? practically nothing in all the darkness of the screen) I would not recommend even playing the trial. Use your own judgement.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Oh dear, where's my flashlight and magnifying glass? Ah, look. The graphics are terrific, kudos to the artist. Even the storyline has some merit. For me, it's all downhill after that. It's an old game, completely out-dated design, and I'm okay with that. Problem is, I can't play it. Everything that must be found is virtually invisible. So invisible, in fact, that the devs put tiny points of light where pickups are available. You don't even know what you've a acquired until the pop-up tells you, and if the item is brighter than a piece of charcoal, you have to rely on the caption to tell you what you have in inventory. And as long as we're talking about inventory, if there is more than one item to be picked up to make a package, say - 6 candles - there's no information to tell you how many you're looking for. Sorry guys, this could have been a great game, but I can't recommend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can't turn off the music??? I'm not playing a game that forces me to listen to the music. I saw I had no control over the music volume and quit without playing at all. Looked like it might be a good game too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from For dummies Really awful. Don't know why I didn't read the reviews before downloading. It's an extremely limited game. I played 10 minutes and it was enough for me to understand my mistake of choice. Fortunately, there are so many other good games from other companies that I'll quickly forget this one.
