Sable Maze: Sinister Knowledge Collector's Edition 4.3 5 36 36
"In A World Of Secrets, Literature Is Our Only Truth" Lars McCordan has been missing since 1930! Who is Lars McCordan? Lars McCordan was a collector of fine literature, his library was filled with books from all genres, but rumor has it that Lars had a secret library, a dangerous library! This secret library is said to contain 5 Tomes, and the first Tome of Truth can activate the other four. Lars certainly knew how dangerous these books would be in the hands of the wrong person, so he and other members of The Secret Society Of Tome Keepers, built a separate and hidden library. This is no ordinary library, this library contains literature's finest genre's hidden within a labyrinth maze, a Fantasy section, a Horror section, Adventure and even a Mystery section. No one knows what happened to the creator of the McCordan library, but when the last known McCordan relative passed away, the Lars McCordan estate was purchased by your newest employer, Colin Englund. Mr. Englund has invited you, an accredited literary historian, to witness the unveiling of this magical library. Mr. Englund has been unsuccessful at disarming the vast locks and traps that protect the library that can supposedly come to life within the real world! But of course, that's our job right, one mini game lock at a time! I really enjoyed this game and bought it immediately after the demo ended, and I might add that the game will hold your interest after the demo as well. The graphics are very realistic, at least as realistic as it can be considering the book's characters have just come to life. There are plenty of Collector's Edition extras, Collectible Coins that are used to purchase different storybook characters (and game characters) Morphing Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces, that you can assemble and set as a Screensaver, and of course, Achievements to earn for different milestones. The Hidden Object Scenes are varied, nothing really new or exciting, but they aren't bad either. You can opt to play a Match 3 game if you're not into the hop. There are Interactive List finds, Interactive Progressive Silhouetted Shape finds, and even FROG's, one of my personal favorites. There are also several Zoom Zone's that have Multiple Item finds and each time you "travel" to a new book genre, you must first find several torn picture fragments within the entire scene, and reassemble them together. This is super simple because there are outlines of each piece displayed. The Mini Games are pretty good. I will admit that several of them have a feature that drives my bonkers (moving on one affects others) but for the most part the games aren't too difficult. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Arrange the symbols in the correct order. 2) Spot the difference in three different pictures. 3) Turn over the stones so that all symbols are visible, clicking on one stone may affect others. 4) Place items in the scene correctly. 5) Select the bells until the image on the bells are the same as the image above them, selecting one bell may affect others. 6) Rotate the circles to the correct positions and then select the tiles to position them. 7) Help the horseman reach the castle by finding and using the correct items to overcome obstacles along his path. 8) Pull the chains to the correct heights, pulling one chain may affect others. 9) Rotate the circles to their correct positions. 10) Paint the image according to the clue. Select the areas you want to paint and then select the color at the top. Only adjacent selected areas will be painted. 11) Move the token to the other side, you can only move forward to a highlighted area. This Collector's Edition has 19 Developer Diary pictures, 16 Concept Art pictures, 10 Wallpapers, Morphing Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces to create 6 different Screensavers, 5 Music Soundtracks, Collectible Coins to purchase 8 Character figures, 6 levels of Tome-Maze puzzles, 15 Achievements to earn, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

Mom told me books are our friends... not in this case! First, say hello to Mr. Jenkins. Give that cat a big hug. :) I love everything about this game. The story is awesome and different, no finding a relative. The voices are superb and yes the game is definitely on the spooky side. Story: You get invited to Collin Englund's mansion to find the Tome of Truth. Upon arriving you meet a woman named Valerie Masters. To be honest, she seems like a flight risk waiting to happen. She tells us that Collin is waiting to greet him. After you're on your own to find the Tome. Once you find it, he turns his henchmen on you and tells you you're fired and now Collin can find the rest of the tomes and run the world! Right, our guy won't be letting that happen. Valerie thinks she can capture him all by herself. Yeah right. Well on with the story and the game. Graphics: Absolutely gorgeous. I stopped and looked for a bit. Music: Fits perfectly with the game. Mini Games: They are fun and different. Not frustrating in the least. A very nice variety. H0GS: A nice variety there too. FROGS and other type. Map: Has a red exclamation point to tell you you have a task there and it's a jump map. Hint: Works very well outside the H0GS. All in all again, awesome game! Thank you devs, top notch job. I highly recommend this game! September 8, 2016
Book Lovers rejoice this game is for us! After years of speculation, the McCordan Library has finally been found! Rumor has it that this labyrinthine library was built to house five legendary tomes, but a series of puzzles and traps guards them. You?ve been called in to overcome these tricky obstacles and track down the tomes, but you quickly realize why he hid them in the first place... The power they contain could destroy the entire world if they fall into the wrong hands! Navigate the treacherous maze as books come alive around you in this exciting hidden-object puzzle adventure game! As a true bibliophile I was in my glory surrounded by books and bookshelves filled with books, having great literature come to life while doing puzzles and hidden object scenes was glorious! I Loved it! I found the scenes and graphics delicious! The music and voice overs were great and most of the puzzles were right up my alley, easy to moderate in difficulty. The HOS scenes were fun and very interactive. The flow of the game was wonderful, you kept moving forward and you used up most of your inventory relatively quickly, there was some back and forth but not a whole lot. It was really just so fun and relaxing to play, the time seemed to fly by! I can not wait to go purchase this game, I'm not even going to wait for the SE I must have it now!! I highly recommend this game! September 8, 2016
One of the "Best Ever" games! Beautiful graphics, don't know about sound as I'm deaf, but definitely one of the best games I've found on Bigfish. Excellent amount of puzzles within the game (with objects named and spelled correctly too!) Excellent game for elderly gamers, you don't have to be a gaming fanatic to figure it out and the puzzles aren't so hard that you get frustrated and give up. Very well thought out story line. Great game balance throughout and a definite winner for any player experience level. September 18, 2016
This a gem! It's outstanding in every way. The scenes are clear and full of detail - they are a book lover's dream - a library that I would love to find and live in. The puzzles and tools are LOGICAL - that one thing I look for in every in every game I play. Perhaps the only thing I found a tad difficult was the constantly revolving hint button, but I eventually got used to it. I could go and describe more, but that would spoil it, all I can say is I wish I'd just found it and even now I am delaying playing the bonus chapter so it doesn't end too soon. September 11, 2016
Finally, a game that's entertaining with a decent storyline Almost through with the game and am thoroughly enjoying this for a change. A story without ghouls and princesses, and kidnapped children in crumbling castles or asylums, etc. The game is mixture of hidden object and other puzzles, that I would say are a mixture of difficult and not so much, which makes the game enjoyable and not frustrating. The five tomes are remarkably different scenarios, each one an adventure in itself. The graphics are wonderful and the logic in the games is pretty well laid out, so you don't have to wonder how do I get there from here. Pleasant way to spend an evening or a weekend. September 11, 2016
Boy oh Boy - Can't wait to finish this game!! I really like playing this game. It is a mix of all my favorite HO's and it is an interesting story line. Keeps you busy and thinking and it is fun to play. You have all read the blow by blow details so I will not cover them again, it has been done really well already. This game is one that I will play many times over and enjoy it every time. Hope you try it out and find that you like it too!! Have fun, that is what it is all about. September 8, 2016
Finally!!! Well, finally a game with with great imagination and intelligence. Love this game already and have only played for about 10 minutes. Thank you developers. September 8, 2016
Amazing Game!! I love books and so i love this game. The storyline is very interesting and the graphic beautiful. This is really a amazing game. September 9, 2016
PICK UP A BOOK AND OPEN UP A WHOLE NEW WORLD ? A GAMING MASTERPIECE REVIEW BASED ON THE DEMO PLUS CHAPTER 3 - 6 CHAPTERS PLUS A BONUS CHAPTER OVERVIEW: WOW! WHAT A GREAT GAME! The world of books is coming to life in this 5-star puzzle fest! In a labyrinth of secret passage ways and booby traps, you, as a literary historian, are off to locate some legendary rare books. These tomes have the ability to literally open up new worlds! This entire game is a creatively designed puzzle. I LOVE the story behind the game. Enter a literary labyrinth ? a virtual library with tomes for different styles of literature. The graphics are colorful. The pace is excellent with many activities within the game. There are an equal number of HOP scenes and puzzles in this game; however, the HOP scenes themselves either contain puzzles or are puzzle-like themselves. Such a beautifully created game. So creative ? a gaming masterpiece! Extras include a collection of coins to purchase figurines of characters in the game and jigsaw pieces to create some jigsaw puzzles. Now ? put down that book and stop a madman bent on destroying this world by creating his own with a special quill and paper! Sounds rather like any writer, doesn?t it? Does that place writers into the category of madmen creating their own virtual realities? This game was an automatic purchase for me! HOP SCENES: In the demo they are very creative and include quite a variety of different types of scenes as well. There are sentences with items to be located highlighted in yellow letters. There are also a series of three scenes involving pictures in which you must locate the differences between the pictures. There is a FROG sequence, a list of items to locate, and a silhouette scene. There is an optional Match-3 game to play in lieu of the HOP scenes. PUZZLES: Based on the demo there is quite a variety of puzzles and they vary in difficulty from easy to moderately difficult. As stated, the complete game is a puzzle. There is a logic problem in which you must deduce the order in which 5 symbols must be pressed according to clues given. There are two matching puzzles. In one, you match up bells so that symbols above them match those on the bells; in the second puzzle you create a maze so that tokens are able to take a path to their matching symbol on the sides. There is an easy, storybook maze puzzle involving moving obstacles out of the path of a horseman. There is a paint-by-number puzzle; however, this one is a little tricky and requires some logic to complete it. AFTER THE DEMO: You will enter other literary worlds. The next is the world of horror, my favorite genre. (I bet you thought it was humor ? but you are wrong!) More great puzzles continue in this literary labyrinth. There is a fiendish moving tiles puzzle with tokens which must be moved into their proper locations. Other puzzles include a logic problem, a slider puzzle, and an easy manual dexterity puzzle. I only played one HOP scene and it was an interactive search and replace scene. LEVELS: Casual, Advanced, Hard, Custom Hints and Skips: 1 to 100 seconds EXTRAS: Map is provided as you play the game 15 Achievements ? some with multiple parts Collect coins to purchase 8 figurines Collect puzzle pieces for 6 jigsaw puzzles Strategy guide - 58 pages 16 Concept Art, 10 Wallpapers, Music, 6 Levels of a Tome Maze HERE ARE THE DETAILS (SPOILERS) FOR THOSE WANT MORE INFORMATION ON THE HOP SCENES AND PUZZLES IN SEQUENCE HOP SCENES: Optional Match-3 game A.

Deduce the order of five symbols by a given set of clues. Rating: 3 B. Moving tiles puzzle. Uncover tiles so that all of them are uncovered. Moving one affects the others. Rating: 3 C. Matching puzzle. Ring 5 bells until the image on the bell matches the image above it. Ringing one affects the others. Rating: 2 D. Maze/Matching puzzle. On a circular board, move the outer circle so that the tokens on the inside of the circle are able to amble through a maze to connect with its like image. Rating: 3 E. Maze puzzle. Help a horseman get back to his castle by interacting with the environment to remove obstacles in his path. Rating: 2 F. Weights and balances puzzle. Move 5 chains containing tokens to the same height as their corresponding token on the side of the scene. Moving one token affects the others. Rating: 3 G. Rotating circles puzzle. Rotate three interconnecting circles until images on the circles correspond to a matching groove. Rating: 2 H. Paint-by-number puzzle. Paint a picture by selecting the color from three pots of paint which will then fill in that section. However, you can only paint a section which is next to either the pot of paint or the color. Rather difficult. Rating: 3 AFTER THE DEMO: I. Logic puzzle. Move a token from left-to-right two spaces at a time. You may not backtrack and must exit exactly using two spaces. Rating: 3 J. Slider puzzle. Rotate rings to recreate an image in the center of the circle. Rating: 2 K. Manual dexterity puzzle. Bulls eye! Hit two chains with pots of acid when the chains are in the center of the target. Rating: 2 L. Moving tiles puzzle. Move a whole lot of tokens into their proper location. Rating: 4 September 8, 2016
