Phantasmat: Reign of Shadows Collector's Edition 4.3 5 29 29
PHINALLY! BIG PHISH PHEATURES ANOTHER PHANTASTIC PHANTASMAT (I'm doing my happy dance can you tell?) Valerie and her PHATHER were never very close, nonetheless, your sister needs to be informed that he has passed away. Tracking her down hasn't been easy, especially during a blizzard. It seems that Val has been working PHOR Doctor Edward Corvine at his private compound in the Oregon mountains, but something seems PHISHY about this whole research scenario. The compound itself was once a booming hotel known as the Arcadia, and was built by the good doctor's PHATHER Christopher. Who knows what happened to Dr. Corvine as a child growing up in this huge hotel, whatever it was, it inspired him to dedicate his life researching all the things that go bump in the darkness! Your sister and her colleague Jordan seems unusually nervous, could it be because of the sinister shadows you thought you saw? Are you being used as a guinea pig in their research, an experiment? Should you stand your ground and PHIGHT or should you take PHLIGHT? It's no secret that the original Phantasmat is my all time PHAVORITE game, and today's release of Reign of Shadows has had me doing my happy dance PHOR sure! The number one reason I love this series is because of the creative storylines. The PHACT is, no other game has ever duplicated the plot from the first Phantasmat, and every time I play a new game in this series I'm constantly trying to PHIGURE out if I'm alive or dead, and what twist the plot will take, because they always do, and I love it! This Collector's Edition has the usual Achievements to earn as well as collectible Diary Pages disguised as Morphing Objects. There is also a Morphing Object within the Hidden Object Scenes. The graphics are amazingly well done and the detail is incredible. There are actually 9 different music tracks that seem to align perfectly with the pace and theme of each location. The Hidden Object Scenes are also very well done and offer several varieties. There are the tried and true Interactive List PHINDS, Keywords to PHIND the associated item during a story, Morphing Object PHINDS, and even Progressive Silhouetted Shape PHINDS where you PHIND the first item that matches the silhouetted shape and then use that item back into the scene interactively to expose the next item and so PHORTH. There is an alternative Match 3 game available if you're not into HOP's. The Mini games present a very nice challenge without being too PHRUSTRATING. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Place the gears into the correct slots based on color by moving mechanisms' elements to guide them. 2) Move cash register buttons to correct the equations shown. 3) Move the silver PHUSE into the correct position by selecting a PHUSE to move it, and small lights to restrict it's movement. 4) Arrange the square tiles to create a path for the ball to travel from point A to point B. 5) Move the receptionist through the sliding room sections to get to the double door exit. 6) A Super Puzzle or multi layered puzzle requiring you to configure lights and wires. This Collector's Edition has 12 Achievements to earn, 19 replayable Puzzles, replayable Match 3 games, 13 replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 4 Collectible Character pictures, 8 Wallpapers, 4 Concept Art pictures, 9 Music Soundtracks, 13 Videos, 21 Morphing Diary Pages, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy my PHELLOW PHRIENDS!

Dark, Darker, and Darkest Your father Dominic Grant has recently died and you must notify your estranged sister Valerie. Val is employed by the eccentric Dr. Edward Corvine at the remote Arcadia Resort doing something.. er, mysterious. Upon arrival, your eyes seem to be seeing strange things in the shadows. But what could go wrong, right? What is immediately apparent is that, unlike other recent releases in this series, in every sense this game is true to its Phantasmat DNA. The atmosphere is creepy, the characters are quirky, and the story is just "edgy" enough to make you want to believe it is really happening. The scenes are dark and show a lot of contrast while using a fairly broad color palette. The voice acting is about as good as can be expected - it is difficult for actors to sound quirky without going too far and sounding silly. In my opinion they were successful, at least in the demo period. The game play was good as well. The first puzzle (there are 19) was a little disappointing, but a later puzzle which required moving a figure through a multi-level maze was much better. However, it might have been better later in the game because it takes a good deal of time to solve. HOPs are mostly good too (there are 13), but in one silhouette-style HOP the list was far too small to identify what you are looking for. Play can be fully customized: glitter, sparkles as well as the plus item indicator can be turned off. CE Extras - besides the bonus game and strategy guide there are 21 morphing objects (with indicator) which become diary pages, 12 achievements, souvenir room, match-3 game, and the usual other pseudo extra stuff. If you like creepy games, I recommend you get this one. Also, if you are a newer player, don't miss the original Phantasmat - and be sure to play them both in a very well lit room. October 6, 2016
Loved the Mini-games I'm giving this 5 stars for the mini-games alone. They were challenging and fun. It took me awhile to beat some of them but worth the effort! The graphics were great, as usual for this game series. I wasn't all that thrilled with the storyline but it was ok. Like I said, the mini-games made up for it. I very much enjoyed the Souvenir Room which when added to the strategy guide made this worth the C.E. purchase for me. In the souvenir room you go back and revisit scenes to find the souvenirs. Some of them are cleverly hidden. Then you play a logic puzzle, which are my favorite! Revisiting the scenes was interesting for me because it took me 4 days to finish the game. So when the early game scenes popped up I was like, "Oh, yea! I remember this scene!" The main game was long, however, the bonus chapter was kind of short. It was interesting and the mini-games were mostly harder than they were in the main game. The game was a lot of fun and I'm very happy I bought it and played it all the way through. October 13, 2016
WHAT IS LURKING IN THE SHADOWS AT ARCADIA RESORT? Well I guess since it is October I should expect a plethora of creepy games set in decaying hotels or in this case a remote resort. Although I am a bit tired of this trend, I must say that Phantasmat: Reign of Shadows is a surprising game that is much better than several of the past games in the series. Although the gameplay is fairly much the same, the puzzles are excellent and they are what make the game much better, at least for me. The developer has shown a tremendous amount of creativity that is sure to please many gamers who seem to be tired of the same old thing. In Reign of Shadows you play the game as Ava who is on a trip to notify your sister of your father?s passing. Valerie has been estranged from dad and when she left she asked you not to look for her. With the help of a private detective you manage to track her down to a private resort located in a remote mountain area in Oregon. The Arcadia Resort, now owned by Dr. Edwin Corvine, was once renowned as a spa for the ?rich and famous.? After a slippery start when you first arrive at resort, you realize that it has definitely seen better days. When you finally you manage enter the compound your journey through darkness and the machinations of Dr. Corvine begin. Will you be able to save Valerie, or is it already too late? The graphics are at times dreary but with surprisingly colorful scenes (mostly the HOPS) thrown in to keep the game from drowning in gloom. Most of the voiceovers are quite good along with a sound package that adds to the ?creepy? nature of the game. There is a custom mode of gameplay for those of you who like to fiddle with hint and skip times. An interactive map that helps you move quickly from one place to another is found early in the game. The HOP scenes are fairly standard but there are some new bits of creativity thrown into the mix. Where I think the game becomes a notch above is with the puzzles that are terrific. Some of the puzzles are challenging and include a gear-type puzzle that I love. There is an alternate match 3 game offered if you don?t want to search for items in the scene. It?s been quite some time since I have seen this puzzle pop up in HOPA games and it is an old favorite. The puzzle is one where we must move gears to the appropriate place based on their color and at first the mechanics seemed a bit touchy but once you figure out how it works all is good. There is also a ?rooms? type puzzle that is quite tricky and took me a while to figure out (finally with some help from the SG ? lol). The CE version of the game includes 21 morphing objects to find and this time they are scattered in scenes in the game. Some of them are very difficult to find and I know I have missed some of them because I just couldn?t spot them. Even though the CE package doesn?t have all of the collectibles we normally find in game from this developer, I would recommend it because of the extra help provided by the strategy guide. If you are new to the genre of HOPA games then the CE is probably your best bet. Even though I wasn?t expecting too much from this new Phantasmat game it turned out to be a pleasant surprise and is much, much better than I thought. I am immensely enjoying the puzzles and even the HOP scenes. The storyline is intriguing and if you are familiar with other games in the series, there is a bit of a surprising twist. That being said, I am wondering if that will be the case with Reign of Shadows or if the game will veer away from the series? signature this time around. Because I wasn?t too sure about the game when I began playing, I urge to play the demo because it might just change any preconceived idea about the game. If you try it, I hope you enjoy it along with me. October 6, 2016
OUT OF A DREAM AND INTO YOUR WORLD OVERVIEW: Welcome to the Arcadia Hotel! What shadows are lurking behind the scenes? Experience your worst nightmare come-to-life in this 5-star game. This game is a vast improvement for EIPIX. To me, the story is well-written with a better storyline than those from the last few games in this series. The dark graphics along with the blizzard scenes in a remote, isolated area, provide a creepy ambiance to the game. There are more puzzles than HOP scenes in the game. Both show much needed innovation and creativity. There are quite a few morphing objects in this game. You collect diary pages which are morphing objects. There are also morphing objects in some of the HOP scenes. You can replay the HOP scenes, the puzzles, and the Match-3 game. To me this is a decent, but not outstanding game. I will purchase it as an SE or perhaps at a sale price. HOP SCENES: The HOP scenes are standard fare which include the usual lists of items, silhouette scenes and storybook scenes. However, EIPIX has provided some new creative touches in some of these scenes. In the demo there is one silhouette scene in which you must not only locate the items but use them to interact with the scene. My favorite HOP scene is a multiple-step one in which you first search for morphing objects followed by rebus clues which must be solved to locate more items. You also have the option to play a Match-3 game instead. PUZZLES: They vary in difficulty and variety. I found the puzzles more challenging and better designed than in recent games. There is a mathematical puzzle in which you create equations to open a cash register. There are two maze puzzles which are nicely done. There is a multiple-step puzzle which consists of a physics puzzle and a connection puzzle. The physics puzzle requires you to move clamps at the correct angle to have wires go through all the lights on a board without touching each other. The connection puzzle then has you connect wires to the bulbs so that each bulb has an exact number of wires emanating from it as written on the bulb?s face. There is a new puzzle in this game which I have not seen in a HOP game before. It is based on the mobile game, ?100 Doors and Ladders.? In a building with many rooms, you work to reach a specified exit. To accomplish this, you must move throughout the building by moving rooms, climbing ladders, entering rooms, searching for keys within that room, and then entering doors to exit to other rooms. You interact with the rooms until you reach the desired exit. However, in some of the rooms you will literally hit a brick wall. There is one puzzle which I had difficulty in solving because the directions are poorly written. It is a gear puzzle in which you must click on either the front or back part of the gear to move it. I discovered it by trial and error. EIPIX should have made this clearer in the directions. STORY: With your father?s Last Will and Testament in hand, you, as Ada, are off to see your sister to settle his estate. Unfortunately, your sister is not too happy to see you and you discover she is part of a dream research project taking place at the hotel. Stuck in this hotel during a blizzard with the creepy head of this project, Dr. Corvine, along with Nurse Bolton (Nurse Ratchet in disguise) and a cast of shadowy figures, try to escape this nightmare with your sister in tow. LEVELS: Easy, Medium, Hard, Custom Hints: 10 to 120 seconds Skips: 10 to 400 seconds EXTRAS: Map is provided as you play the game 12 Achievements Collect 21 Morphing Diary Pages Replay 19 Puzzles, 13 HOP scenes and the Match Game 8 Wallpapers, 4 Concept Art, 13 Videos, Music, Souvenir Room HERE ARE THE DETAILS (SPOILERS) FOR THOSE WANT MORE INFORMATION ON THE HOP SCENES AND PUZZLES IN SEQUENCE HOP SCENES: You can opt to play a Match-3 game instead. A. List of items to locate. As you locate items, find 3 tumblers for a lock. Very interactive. B. Storybook sequence. Locate items in sentences highlighted in BOLD letters. C. Silhouette items. Locate items and then interact with the scene by using them. D. Multiple step. (1) Morphing objects. (2) Rebus clues to locate objects PUZZLES: Puzzle Rating: (1) Extremely easy 2) Easy (3) A little difficult or time consuming (4) Moderately difficult (5) Difficult A. Gear puzzle. Move gears into their proper locations by color. Rating: 2/3. I found the directions for this puzzle not explained adequately. You need to push either the front or back of the colored gear to have it move in that direction. This was omitted in the directions. B. Mathematical puzzle. Create equations to open a cash register. Rating: 2 C. Maze puzzle. Move a fuse into the center of the maze. Rating: 3 D. Maze puzzle. Create a path for a ball to move through a maze. Rating: 2 E. 100 Doors and Ladders puzzle. This is a puzzle based upon a popular mobile game. Move from room-to-room to reach an exit by moving rooms, climbing ladders, entering doors, and looking in rooms for keys to open doors. 2X. Rating: 3-4 F. Multiple step puzzle. (1) Physics puzzle. On a circuit board move 9 clamps to move wires so they go through 8 green lights without wires touching each other. (2) Connection puzzle. Connect light bulbs with wires. Each bulb has a number on it and that is the amount of wires which connect with it. Rating: 3 October 6, 2016
Great Halloween Game! Phantasmat recovers after a weak previous entry. This one is dark, spooky, and it's a game the player's character survives more than prevails in. Some themes so old they'd be cliche if they weren't so well done. LOTS of game play for a change, even the Bonus game. Pros: Madness and mayhem and a monster. Very atmospheric, both music and art, which some might find a little dark but it's appropriate here. Not much in the way of gaiety and lightness in this one. Plot a bit weak when it comes to an interesting villain but solid overall. Puzzles a mix of old and new - loved the magnet puzzle! Useful map. Cons: Had to use that useful map because the task sequence was sometimes not only not obvious, but impossible to guess. No matter, it worked. Quite a bit of back-and-forth, but never too far. Music got a little repetitive at the end. Maybe a few too many sudden cut scenes that broke up the rhythm of the game. Not much negative to say, really. Notes: A terrific Halloween game, Asylums, ruined mansions, decrepit graveyards, ghosts, monsters, and mad doctors, oh, my! October 18, 2016
Best entry since the original... Definitely the best in the series since the original and a huge improvement over the mediocre last entry. Spooky, good graphics, good story, nice "creep" level, and fun/original HOP's and puzzles. If you liked the series and were hoping they could revive it after the last few misses, you'll be glad you played this one. October 16, 2016
Five Stars not enough.. Game of the Year! GENIUS! PURE GENIUS! I haven?t even started the bonus game yet but it doesn?t matter.. this is my pick for Game of the Year! I don?t usually purchase games from this developer because of the tired, overdone HOs and lack of creativity in finding and use of inventory items and never needing to use the map. NONE of this applies to this game! It was challenge at it?s best for me. What a great mix of HOs (using the flashlight was my favorite). There was a lot of challenge in remembering where to go and what to use from my inventory. (and yes, I HAD to use the map ? finally) Puzzles always confuse me but I could do some and many I skipped. One of the BEST things about this game was that there was no amulet or gimmick to have to use, the real monster was a calm speaking, deranged scientist who goaded me through the game. (voice acting AMAZING !!) The only downside was the strategy guide because I needed it but it wasn?t very useful in several cases. (thank goodness for this forum). I never replay the HOs in the extras but this one I think I will. Five stars just isn?t enough?? October 9, 2016
OUTSTANDING ADDITION TO THE SERIES, TRUE EIPIX FORM Wow, this game was well designed with the hidden objects fan in mind. I love this series, it always scares me to death and I get so involved I forget the time. Speaking of time, I took my time with the demo to experience all the quality this game offers, with 16 minutes to spare. The opening credits are spectacular and grabbed me instantly; and the details (right down to the bugs on the wall) are very well done. Of course, as with all Eipix games, the music selection compliments the storyline and gave me that sense of urgency that I look for in a good game. Even the HOPs were unique to the storyline and it all tied together as a whole, as it should be, in my opinion. The facts are presented, but left to the imagination, when you get a letter to get to your estranged sister who is at a scary, creepy resort in the Oregon mountains. I still don't know why they can't just leave, but the creepy guy in this one says he studies 'the dark.' I did not feel the need to pick this apart, technically, as I was so engrossed in the game, it just didn't matter to me. This is a must buy for me, I have to find out how this all works out, and who lives and who dies. Thanks, Mia October 6, 2016
CREEEEEPY CREEEEPY ARCADIA!!! Exceeded my expectations!!! Great storyline, had so much fun with Valerie and Doctor Edward Corvine, well played! If you are anything like me, and love scary creepy, exciting HOPA adventures, you'll enjoy this one! Thumbs up October 8, 2016
