The Keeper of Antiques: The Revived Book Collector's Edition 4.5 5 55 55
More Promising After The Demo Which Is A Bit Slow Alexandra hasn't heard from Uncle Paul for a few days so she decides to pay him a visit at the Antique Shop. Uncle Paul's nowhere in sight, and you get the feeling something's very wrong. Your instincts serve you right when a thug appears out of nowhere demanding you give him the book you just picked up. After gathering your wits and composure, you do a little snooping around the shop, hoping to find some sort of clue that will shed light upon this dark situation. What you discover is that Paul Anderson's Antique Shop is no ordinary shop, and his antiques are no ordinary antiques. Some of Uncle Paul's antiques are actually very powerful artifacts, so powerful that they require "Keepers" to protect them from those who seek their powers! I don't know about you, but I will be a little leary about visiting antique shops in the future because apparently, nothing ever goes well inside them! This is a new series that seems to have a lot going for it, decent graphics, and flawless mechanics above all else. This Collector's Edition has a ton of extra features, Achievements to earn for each milestone, 33 Morphing Objects, 36 Memories of the Past Jigsaw Puzzle pieces that allow you to assemble the puzzles to learn more of the storyline and use as Wallpapers, and 33 different Hidden Collectibles in 5 different categories, Gramophone records, Galaxy's, Portraits, Horn of Plenty and Cages with Birds, most of which are creatively blended into each scene. Seem's Uncle Paul collects some unusual items, one of which is Spark, a Fire Salamander that will be your sidekick in this adventure and help out by shedding some light to the dark and of course, giving you a "spark" of flame when you need it the most. I really wish that sidekicks would stay in the genre they belong (fantasy themes) when you are playing a game that is trying to remain realistic yet supernatural, it would be nice to have a lighter and a multi purpose tool that I hang onto for the whole game. The Hidden Object Scenes are varied and multi layered with Interactive List finds, finding items that match Keywords in a story, and Silhouetted Shape finds, most of which have interactive puzzles within to make them more entertaining. There are several Zoom Zone HOP's where you find 5 items scattered around the room such as stereo parts, instruments or gears. The Mini Games range from super simple quickies to multi-layered puzzles. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Select pairs of orange symbols on the outside of the picture that comprise the blue symbols shown in the center. 2) Select badges in the correct sequence as demonstrated. 3) Select plates to flip to reveal an image, selecting one affects others, when all sections have been flipped, swap sections to complete the image. 4) Spot the differences between two pictures. 5) Keep the target reticle in the center of the green circle until it reaches the umbrella target. This Collector's Edition has 9 Wallpapers, 11 Concept Art pictures, 3 Screensavers, 4 Music Soundtracks, 12 Achievements, 26 Hidden Object Scenes, 26 Mini Games, 33 Hidden Collectibles, 36 hidden Jigsaw Puzzle pieces, 33 Morphing Objects, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

JUMP INTO A WORLD OF NIGHTMARES TO SAVE YOUR UNCLE At last, in a departure from this developer?s worn out series it has taken a giant leap into this awesome new game The Keeper of Antiquities. I love games from this developer and have always found them to be well-crafted and long, offering great gameplay and, if you choose the CE, lots of extra goodies. The graphics are very much like those in the familiar Witches? Legacy and Fear for Sale series where the artists are terrific at creating dark fantasy worlds. You play the game as Alexandra who?s Uncle Paul has disappeared and you are on a mission to find him. When you arrive at your uncle?s shop you stumble upon a book and find your uncle trapped within its pages. As you work to free your uncle you discover a much deeper and sinister meaning to the mystery and the nightmarish book that soon will trap you and a friend as well. Now you must not only save your uncle but others as well as yourself. Your tools include a terrific, interactive map that not only shows you where you have tasks to accomplish but also where you might have available extra goodies to find. Your other tool is a fire salamander that will help when a little flame is needed. The HOPS include a lot of those familiar windowed mini-HOPS where we must find a specified number of parts scattered around the scene to complete the needed item. The full-blown HOPS are excellent but I did find some items difficult to find as the scenes were a bit dark. A great thing with the HOPS is that they are very puzzle-like and contain mini-games to find some needed items. The mini-games are excellent and some are tricky to complete. I found most of the minis quite enjoyable, but I love solving puzzles so Keeper of Antiquities is perfect for me. The CE version of the game is chock full of extra goodies. There are puzzle pieces to find as well as different sets of collectibles and morphing objects. I had a hard time spotting some of the morps so I am thankful the map lets me know where something might have been missed in a scene. Yes, I love CEs and I admit that I am almost compulsive about finding all of the extra goodies in a game. Along with all of those extras to find we have the usual standard extras such as the bonus game and strategy guide. Keeper of Antiquities is what every developer should look at when it comes to formulating an excellent package that is CE worthy. Congratulations to this development team for stepping outside the box and giving us an exciting new game that will keep us thinking and entertained for hours. A lot of thought and creativity has gone into Keeper of Antiquities and I am enjoying each step as I save others from an eternal nightmare. Of course the game was an instant buy for me and one that I love but please try the demo to see if Keeper of Antiquities is a game you will enjoy. June 9, 2016
WOW and just AWESOME!!!\ Finally! A game that sets a new direction for HOPA's and then some. Different enough to be unique, yet challenging and fun. It keeps you thinking and puzzling at the same time. Great job ! game developers !! I hope we see more of this type of game play in future editions. You have to demo to see if you agree.... A definite buy for me! June 9, 2016
Really Enjoyed I played all the demo and had no problems. I found the story line to be very interesting and flowed very nicely, The graphics we great as well as the voice overs. Music fits the story and the environment it is set in. The HOPs were different not the run of the mill kind. I liked all the different interactions through out the game. There are are collectibles in the form of morphing objects, puzzle pieces and a collectable pieces. Also a good map that transports. I rarely give 5 stars and I felt on my enjoyment, it desreved a 5 star rating. But as always, play it before you buy it and see if the CE is enjoyable to you. June 9, 2016
Bibliophile's Beware! Whomever said "books are our friends" never knew your uncle's antiquarian interest could be lethal. When you arrive at his store, you find he is missing and an intruder in the process of destroying books. When you attempt to stop the intruder you are pulled into a book and into a world where you must not only save yourself, but your uncle as well, or die trying! After watching the demo and only a few minutes of play I just had to add this one to my library. This game will, indeed, be one of the top 10 games of 2016!! June 9, 2016
SECOND BEST GAME OF THE YEAR! IMO Chimeras: Cursed and Forgotten Collector's Edition being the other. Wow! What a great game. This game...has a fantastic story line. The graphics and animations are beautiful. It is a little foggy...but this can depend on individual computers...I'm sure. All of the collectables are somewhat challenging...and the items can be small and a little hard to find. But, this is what makes games more challenging and much more exciting. IMO. This is a Fantastic game. I highly recommend this Winner! Don't pass on this great beauty and one of the best games of the year. I'm very excited to add this game to my library. I'm giving this game my best rating...because it has all the bells and whistles, I look for in a game and much more! Great Job to the Developers! Thank you! Enjoy, Lisa (peace) I rate this game: "DIVINE FINE SWINE" ?These are my acronyms & rating system?for Hogs, I Hogs, frogs & Adventure games: ?DIVINE FINE SWINE? The absolute best of the best! It has everything you want in a game and things you didn?t know you wanted in a game. It is a rare beauty and a must have! Beyond expectations! I really love it! ?FINE SWINE? Great game! Best graphics and story line. All the bells and whistles! The best and greatest of games! I love it! ?PIGLET? Good game. I like these little gems! This game is for true lovers of these types of games. ?PORK BELLY? May be a likable game for some, but not for everyone. ?TROTTERS? Don't run away with this pig?s foot. ?PIG DOWN? Rolling in the mud! Don?t go near it or you'll get soiled. ? ? (o) June 9, 2016
Beautiful and Entertaining! This game is beautiful and entertaining. The story line is a good one. It kept me guessing and wanting more. The art work is wonderful and clever, and it supports the story in a light hearted but yet spooky way. Very cool. There are lots of different puzzles plus morphing objects and other things to look for while playing. A very satisfying game. Definite SE buy for me. June 11, 2016
BUILD YOUR OWN CUSTOMIZED DREAM - HOME TO AN ETERNAL NIGHTMARE WITHIN A BOOK. OVERVIEW: Step out of a dream and into a 5-star nightmare in this game. Enter a book in which the writer customizes your very own nightmare. You, as Alexandra, discover your uncle has disappeared into a book written by a novelist attempting to create the perfect masterpiece of terror. During your search for your uncle, you will meet Joe Milton, whose sister has also disappeared into the same book. Each chapter of this book is devoted to one of the book?s victims and each nightmare is customized especially for him or her. You and Joe will need to find a way to release all the souls trapped in the book before both of you find yourselves are trapped in an eternal nightmare as well. The story is exceptionally creative for a gaming format. The graphics are fairly well-done; however, in some places they seem a little dated. I also felt the pace was decent. The story and activities kept me engaged. There is an equal amount of HOP scenes and puzzles. The HOP scenes are varied in style and difficulty. The mini-games are varied in design; however, most of them are easy. You collect puzzle pieces to play a jigsaw puzzle at the end of the game. Collect five types of keepsakes and morphing objects. Both are not easy to detect. There is a helper, a fire dragon; however, he does nothing except provide la needed flame when needed. He is hardly what I would call a helper HOP SCENES: EXCELLENT! BEST PART OF THIS GAME! SO CREATIVE! This developer has provided some of the most innovative HOP scenes I have seen in quite some time. They are cleverly designed and puzzle-like. Some of the HOP scenes contain mini-puzzles. There are some mini-HOP scenes in which you search for a small number of one items. There are a few multiple-step ones as well. The first HOP scene is unique and well done in which you look for musical instruments for seven musicians. After that, you exchange the musicians so they are properly placed with the correct musical symbol. Awesome! The other HOP scenes include some creative matching scenes, a few mini-HOP scenes in which you locate a small number of one items, a storybook sequence, lists of items, and silhouette items. I would advise other developers to look at the quality and innovation displayed in constructing these scenes. MINI-GAMES: There is a variety in the difficulty and type of puzzles. Most are easy in the demo with the exception on one involving a multiple-step ?slat? puzzle and a maze puzzle which requires some logical thinking. The other puzzles include a couple of assembly puzzles, a Simon Says puzzle, a tangram puzzle, and a manual dexterity puzzle. FAVORITE PUZZLE: There was only one puzzle I enjoyed from the demo. It is a multiple-step ?slat? puzzle. You must turn over slats in correct sequence so that all pieces of a picture puzzle are exposed. After that you must switch the slats to reassemble the picture. It is slightly time consuming. LEVELS: Casual, Normal, Hard, Custom Hints 10 to 35 seconds Skips 10 to 50 seconds EXTRAS: Map is provided as you play the game 12 Achievements Collect 36 puzzles pieces to play a jigsaw puzzle at the end of the game Collect 33 keepsakes ? 7 Gramophone pieces, 7 Galaxy items, 7 Portraits, 6 Horns of plenty, 6 Birds with cage 33 Morphing objects: Strategy guide 9 Wallpapers, 11 Art gallery pictures, 3 Screensavers, Soundtrack HERE ARE THE DETAILS (SPOILERS) FOR THOSE WANT MORE INFORMATION ON THE HOP SCENES AND MINI-PUZZLES HOP SCENES: A.

Locate items and replace them back into the scene in their proper locations. Rating: 2 June 9, 2016
The Keeper of Antiques What can i say.... The Revived Book is more of a revived story line. Not particularly original. But that is my only real grizzle about the game. Great visuals, sound effects, and cut scenes. The story flowed well. There were bonus morphing objects, jigsaw pieces, and collectables to gather along the way. The map showed you if you had missed any. Hidden objects were a slight let-down. No morphing objects, and not very interactive. Puzzles varied in both type and difficulty but nothing very hard. Game was an okay length. Bonus chapter followed on from game and was the same calibre. Recommend this game. June 14, 2016
Outstanding game! From the opening sequence to the very end, I absolutely loved this game. The graphics are excellent, the voiceovers are exactly that (none of that lip-syncing nonsense that very rarely works), I even had the music loud enough to hear! It is full of interactive objects to play with purely for the fun, morphing objects, jigsaw pieces to find, collectibles etc etc. (I may have to play it again because I missed quite a few!) It is a very long game as well compared to others I have played and the bonus game was a good length too. The HOS were different in some respects because you had some items you had to do several things with in order to get what you wanted - like an animal in one scene which morphs three times before vanishing...
