Dawn of Hope: Skyline Adventure Collector's Edition 4.3 5 42 42
WHOSE FINGER IS ON THESE NUCLEAR CODES? The world is different now. For hundreds of years, humans have lived beside elves in a post apocalyptic world, a world that is dying. Both human and elven worlds know of the Prophecy that has been foretold by their ancestors, a glimmer of hope, another chance for survival. Legends say that a Champion from the human world will enter the Forbidden Zone to retrieve the Nucleus that will heal the world. Humankind and elves have shared the same ill fates, but will the Nucleus heal the fractured world that mankind destroyed? Is the Nucleus responsible for the ill fates of this post apocalyptic generation? Is the world ready for the Dawn of Hope? MAD HEAD games has done it again! It seem that this dev has been doing some thinking outside the box again, like 24/7 thinking, like professional thinking, their thinking is thinking. What I think I'm trying to get across, is that once again Mad Head has presented us with another game that has an original storyline, one that is fresh and holds your attention. Lately it seems that the demo of most games are difficult to get through because they simply don't hold your attention, and there's no cliff hangers at the end of the demo to make you want to download the rest of the game. Not so with Dawn of Hope, which admittedly has a couple of slow parts in the demo, but the demo ends so well that it would be difficult NOT to download the game to see what happens! You don't get a fuzzy sidekick, and you certainly don't get a fancy electronic tablet or smartphone because in this world, electronics are worthless, unless they can be repurposed for survival. (can you imagine a world without BF games?) You do eventually get a makeshift tool that takes 2 common items and combines them to make a useful tool such as your grappling hook, after playing a Mini Game of course. In this collector's Edition, most of the scenes have a hidden Elven Fairy to collect, a handful of Achievements to earn, and a Morphing Object within the HOP's. The Hidden Object Scenes are a wee bit disappointing, because usually this dev incorporates unusual themes within unusual scene locations. Most of the HOP's are interactive list finds but there are variations such as Spot the Difference, finding recipe items, finding items with a beam of light and finding items that match a black and white photo. There are also a few Zoom Zone scenes, and most HOP's have a Morphing Object. The Mini Games are fairly easy for the most part. Below are brief descriptions of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Each time you use your grappling hook, you will play a few interactive mini games where you throw the hook at targets specified, or stop the targets when they are in the green zone of the meter. 2) Place ropes in the correct order using the existing pattern as a guide. 3) Match 3 variation game removing all runes by swapping runes strategically so no rune remains on the board. 4) Blocks variation where you select and move obstacles to clear a path for the trolley. 5) Select radio knobs to arrange notes according to the picture shown. 6) Move the doors and rotate or slide tiles to complete the images. This Collector's Edition has 16 Wallpapers, 10 Music Soundtracks, 14 Achievements, 18 Hidden Object scenes, a Collectible Hunt game, replayable Rune Games, Jigsaw Puzzles, a Character Gallery, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy the game before the world stops spinning!

It's been a long wait for this gem Many months ago I was asked to beta test and survey Dawn of Hope. It generally doesn't take as long as this game did to become available. However, as the old saying goes: "Good things come to those who wait" In a few words I gave a glowing review in my survey. The many months it took to release Skyline Adventure has not diminished my enthusiasm for it. Our heroine must find a lasting cure for a disease that has nearly killed her father. To do so she must travel between the human and elven worlds to make dad whole again., She is assisted by an elven mechanic and is apparently thwarted by a human wearing a gas mask called the Wanderer. Somehow I feel the Wanderer is one of the good guys. There is a device called the nucleus that if properly used can rid both worlds of disease for all time. The elven queen convinces the daughter that if she can unravel the secrets within the nucleus, all will be well. At the demo's end it becomes somewhat clearer that the queens intent for the nucleus is geared only to the world of elves. Graphically Dawn of Hope is one of the best drawn game in a very long time as so many items and also the characters seem lifelike. The player gets to use a magical grappling hook to evade the Wanderer and get closer to where the nucleus is housed. A portion of the hidden object segments are very clever as well as being interactive and the puzzles ( although seen in prior games ) do offer some challenge. For those who enjoy finding collections Skyline has them. The look and feel of the game makes it a sure fire buy for me and I wholeheartedly endorse Dawn of Hope. November 5, 2016
Dawn of Hope: One dev is writing original storylines and creating innovative gameplay...Madhead has another winner! REVIEW BASED ON completed demo (Mac OS 10.11.6) and I?m purchasing this one as soon as I find a second game for the two-for-one sale HOW I RATE GAMES My collection includes 511 computer games. To me, a successful game has a well-developed and entertaining storyline, logical and challenging gameplay, intuitive game mechanics, a variety of music and environmental sounds, and professional graphics regardless of style. If it?s a CE, the extra offerings should justify the doubled price. ONCE UPON A TIME ????? In a stark, post-apocalyptic world, the human race scavenges a meager existence from the tops of crumbling skyscrapers overgrown with mutant, carnivorous plants. The depths are know as The Forbidden Zone, as they are unpopulated and rife with danger. Lana and her father live in a small, cooperative village that has managed to wring a modicum of civilization from the chaos. Lana has been searching for a cure for her father?s illness, which he caught on a trip to The Forbidden Zone in an attempt to retrieve the Nucleus, an artifact the Elves claim has the power to save the world. Now, it?s up to Lana to take his place, for only those in her family can access the Nucleus. But will the Nucleus be the savior of mankind?or its doom? Now THIS is creative storytelling. It?s an utterly unique setting and completely original plot that borrows nothing from prior games, popular movies, or novels. The exposition is well-developed and nicely paced, and the gaming elements are perfectly integrated. PLAY THE GAME ????? Once again, Madhead has raised the bar by offering unique methods of gameplay that break from the tedious formula most games follow. Since the game world exists at the tops of skyscrapers, you often have to puzzle through how to get from one to the other. Your grappling hook will help, especially because you can upgrade it with a magical crafting table (and a successful game of Match-3). But you?ll also be building ladders and bridges, and repairing various mechanisms to cross from one building to another, as well as exploring abandoned building for items you can use. HO scenes are generally complex, involving zoomed areas, built-in puzzles, and interactive objects. A variety of list types is offered as well, and each scene includes a morphing object. Puzzles range from quick and easy to complex and more difficult. ? To use the magical crafting table, play Match-3 until you?ve eliminated all tokens (easy to medium, requires strategy). ? Slide variously-sized rectangles around on the grid to make a path between Lana and the window (easy). ? With the Wanderer chasing you, find a path across the rooftops, stopping at certain points to move obstacles and solve puzzles (multi-step, medium, and lots of fun). ? To access the Nucleus, first solve a nine-piece slider puzzle to complete the image, then solve a rotating pieces puzzle (easy). NUTS & BOLTS ????? The interface is both functional and beautiful and includes icons for all the usual suspects, plus your grappling hook. The map is fully interactive and a work of art in and of itself. There is no helper, and the grappling hook is not gimmicky since it?s integrated into both the storyline and the gameplay. Four difficulty levels, including custom. Separate volumes for music, effects, and voices. The game cursor is well-designed with changes for zoom, take, interact, and move clearly visible. Navigation is intuitive and hotspots are adequate. SOUNDBOARD ????? I loved the soundtrack, and thought it matched perfectly with the storyline. As is typical for Madhead, the music had lots of variety and dynamics. Voiceovers were spot on and professional. Ambients sound was done well, and game sounds were good. SIGHTSEEING ????? If you?ve watched the show ?Life After People,? then you know that Madhead did a great job portraying a post-apocalyptic city. I swear, I actually got vertigo a couple of times. The palette, textures, and treatment of light were all awesome, as was the depth of field. Don?t look down. NPCs were drawn and articulated well, and animation was smooth. Items up close had lovely details. OOH! PIECE OF CANDY ???? Save Lana?s village from danger in the bonus chapter. Find the collectible fairy in each scene, and the morphing object in each HO. Earn performance achievements and use the SG. Replay HO scenes and Match-3 (but still no puzzles! C?mon, Madhead?I hate to keep taking a star away from you for this!). Dev?s portfolio includes soundtracks and wallpapers. END OF LINE Overall Rating: 29 total ? 6 categories = 4.83 ? (rounded to ?????) This time, I?m rounding UP. Why? Because Madhead took the time to give us an original story and innovative gameplay instead of just churning out another formulaic game. Better pay attention, devs?while you were resting on your laurels, Madhead climbed to the top of the pack. And they?re keeping the #1 spot by constantly innovating. I?m happy to recommend this one. RECOMMENDED BY THIS DEV These are games I rated ???? or above at the time of their release. Some may be older, so please compare your system specs with the game?s requirements before downloading?enjoy! ? Beyond: Light Advent ? Cadenza: Music Betrayal & Death, Havana Nights ?

The Wait is Over I too was privileged to Beta Test this game. I have been waiting for it ever since. Lana is a survivor, a human in a decaying world left from some horrible apocalypse that decimated the human race and left us living in the ruins beside the remnants of the Elvin race. Below where I live with my father, in a school bus on top of a tower of sorts, lies the Forbidden Zone, an area of ruins, poisonous gases, and dangerous situations. Father went to the Forbidden Zone to find something called a Nucleus, an artifact that the elves claim will heal all disease. When Father came back, he was deathly ill. Lana's only hope of saving him is to venture down into the Forbidden Zone herself and try to find the Nucleus. Good stuff: The artwork is amazing, truly a vision of a possible future when mankind has failed to coexist with each other, nature, or our own creations. HOPs are varied and game elements well done. You will have a Rune board that helps with your climbing equipment and has its own special puzzle to complete each time you can upgrade your tools. You will need all the help you can get as you have to climb and rappel from one ruined sky scraper to the next, fighting past man-eating plants and imaginatively placed remnants of the old times, as well as someone who wants to stop you. The story and characterizations were well done and the end of the Demo will make you want to come back quickly as nothing is certain in this ruined future. Bad stuff: It took forever for the Devs to get this game to market, but the beauty and realism of the world they created is breath-taking. Best: Two for one sale. Play the demo by all means. We all know that there are different tastes. I just want to get back to my game! November 6, 2016
CAN YOU FIND THE ARTIFACT AND HEAL THE DEVASTAION IN A DYING POST-APOCALYPTIC WORLD? From a developer who is now emerging as one of the most creative and innovative producers of casual games comes Dawn of Hope Skyline Adventure, an exciting sci-fi/fantasy blend that is sure to please gamers who have been clamoring for something different. At least for me this game represents the best of both genres so I knew it would be an instant purchase. In the opening cutscene the elven queen tells her people that since the time elves have started living along side of humans they have shared the same ill fates. The world is dying but there is hope: a prophecy that a champion from the world of humans will enter the forbidden zone and bring the queen a special artifact that will allow the queen to heal both worlds. The queen had hoped that Lana?s father was their long-awaited champion but he failed and the queen now asks you to take up the quest and succeed where he did not. You will play the game as Lana who is now trying desperately to save her dying father who returned from the ?forbidden zone? in the lower world, after failing to find the artifact. Those who remain in the world now live ?above? ? in the trees and higher plateaus far from the destruction that once took place below. Will you be able to succeed in finding the artifact and save both your father? Face seemingly unsurmountable obstacles as you take up the quest to find the Nucleus and play through this wonderful new HOPA game. Something I love about this game is that the artists have been able to create awesome graphics that depict the decaying ?forbidden zone? without every scene being totally drenched in tones of gray, brown, and black. Although the world below is dreary, there is still some brilliant color in the scenes as well. The voices are wonderful and with the overall sound package make the game see realistic. I was so immersed in the game that when the demo ended I knew that I had to keep going. The game tools include an interactive map but you also receive a magic rune table from your father?s friend Coop. This special cube will help you create or repair items by combining parts of other items after you play a mini-game to clear the runes from the top of the cube. A gimmick, of course, but I rather like this one. The HOPS were well-designed and very interactive. Lately, I have become a bit bored with some HOPS that seem to require a bit too much interaction but I actually enjoyed these as they are very creative. The mini-games were not difficult but maybe that is because I happen to enjoy the ones found in the demo. As we all know, the puzzles inevitably become more challenging as the game progresses but at least you can hit the skip button if you don?t want to solve them. If you enjoy the CE version of games, this one includes the following extras: there are 32 collectible fairies and 18 morphing objects to be found, and also 14 achievements to earn. The standard extras include the bonus game, strategy guide, 16 gorgeous wallpapers, soundtrack, and a Rune Game. Recently we have seen several excellent games from this developer and now I find myself eagerly waiting for their next release. Dawn of Hope Skyline Adventure shows that fantasy and sci-fi fit nicely to create a new type of game that I happen to love. The storyline is excellent and the gameplay moved smoothly through the storyline to present a game that I find very entertaining. Since the game was an instant buy for me, I need to post this review and get back to playing. As always, please try the demo to see if you will enjoy this game as well. November 5, 2016
Outstanding game Mad Head has done it again with this game. This is exactly what I love about these devs. Fantastic graphics and colors, draw you in storyline and unbelievable imagination. I love how you have to zip line through the areas, somewhat getting stressed out because you are being followed at the same time, ha. This reminds me a bit of Avatar. You have the future world in shambles but living in a story with elves. Great combination. Map, collectibles and morphs. Mini games are just what I like and the Hops are fun to play. You need to play a little match 3 game when combining certain items. So much fun. This is a definite buy for me. I have so been waiting for a different game that keeps my interest and draws me in, this one does!! November 5, 2016
INCREDIBLE POST APOCALYPTIC GAME THAT LEAVES YOU WANTING This is a must-have for me. My favorite scenario, yet; post-apocalypse combined with past and future events, all surrounding what you think is some artifact that turns out to be something else. I'm fascinated with this storyline and cannot wait to go through it all. The game technicals are very well done, right down to how the HOPs and mini-games compliment the storyline. You feel like you're there! At least, I did. The visuals are fantastic and the music builds at just the right time to make me want more. This game is for all levels of expertise, just take your time and enjoy how your mind relates. Thanks BFG, this is a winner! Mia November 5, 2016
A FANTASTIC POST-APOCALYPTIC ADVENTUE COMES TO BIG FISH!!! Mad Head has created some great games this year, but this one is REALLY unique. You play Lana, who must continue the task her father first attempted. And save the village of Promise from danger! You must also save father and retrieve the Nucleus from the Forbidden Zone. Using mostly just your wits and climbing skills. Your grappling hook and rope maybe basic, but it?s your most useful tool. As you?ll need to find the quickest way through the ruins of the Old World. Be on the lookout for items that you can use or repurpose as tools and other useful items. With puzzles, mini-games and interactive hidden object scenes throughout. Play in 4 difficulty modes: Easy, Medium, Hard, Custom. A fast-travel map is available. And also indicates where locations and objectives are available. There?s a rechargeable hints system. And a rechargeable puzzle skip button. The time to recharge depends on the difficulty mode you?re playing in. A magic Rune table is another handy tool you have. With a runic match 3 mini-game, use it to combine items to make them into tools. With Collector?s Edition extras. Including a bonus chapter, collectibles, morphing items, achievements and a strategy guide. Skyline Adventure uses gorgeous artwork to set the scene. Brilliantly depicting remnants of both the elven world and the human world that have been left behind. With ruins of a city and it?s skyscrapers overrun with trees and foliage. And interspersed with Elven artifacts. There are plenty of puzzles and mini-games. With a good variety of challenge and type for both. There also some (but not many) interactive HOP scenes, which for the most part are relatively simple. The game play overall is not too challenging. However, where this game really excels is in the smooth and intuitive mechanics of the game play. As you journey through this unusual world. The game play makes the most of this intriguing elven and human combination. And gives this game a unique and refreshing feel. Explore the dangerous forbidden zone in this classic hidden object adventure to save the world of elves from destruction. Find hidden items from word lists or silhouettes and solve the trickiest puzzles to find the answer. Unlock a bonus chapter after completing the epic story mode. I would love to see this become an on going series in the Mad Head franchise. Thank you Big Fish! xoxo November 15, 2016
DAWN HOPE - Loved this game immediately It took less than 3 minutes of test play to convince me that this a great game. I'm really impressed because I usually play at least 20 minutes before deciding to buy a game. The music, the story line, graphics ....everything about this one says it's going to be an enjoyable experience. November 5, 2016
ZIPLINE THROUGH DANGER IN A POST-APOCALYPTIC WORLD! 6 CHAPTERS PLUS A BONUS CHAPTER ? REVIEW BASED ON THE DEMO OVERVIEW: Zip-line your way through the Forbidden Kingdom in this 5-star sci-fi thriller. I LOVE this game and it was an automatic purchase for me. This is another beautifully crafted game by Mad Head. You, as Lana, are a resident of a post -apocalyptic world seemingly destroyed by nuclear warfare. Your world is now dying. However, a prophecy indicates that a champion will arise to return the nucleus from the Forbidden Kingdom and heal the world. You may be that champion. You are being aided by elves in a world in which humans and elves live together in former skyscrapers far above the ground. As you enter the Forbidden Zone, you are stalked and threatened by a man called the Wanderer. Are you the prophesized savior? Can you save your dying father? The gaming script is excellent. The graphics well portray a post-apocalyptic word. The game somewhat reminds me of the movie ?Planet of the Apes,? with the elves replacing the apes. You will not encounter any apes; however, you will be ?monkeying? around swinging high above the ground. The pace is fast-paced ? keeping you flying from building-to-building, and maneuvering through debris. There are morphing objects and fairies to collect. HOP SCENES: In the demo, there are more HOP scenes than puzzles. I feel the HOP scenes are well-created and interactive. They are either lists of items to locate or silhouette. PUZZLES: Your ?helper? in this game is a grappling hook. There is a puzzle associated with using this grappling hook as you zip-line from building-to-building. You play a Match-3 game which increases in difficulty as you proceed in the game. You must remove all the gems on the board; however, this will take some logic on your part. It seems Mad Head is into picture restoration. You restore pictures three times in the demo by differing techniques which include switching tiles, sliding tiles, and rotating tiles. Another puzzle is a slightly difficult matching puzzle in which you use dials to replicate the placement of musical notes on a radio. There is a maze puzzle in which you must remove obstacles so a teacart can fly out a window. LEVELS: Easy, Medium, Hard, and Custom Hints and Skips: 15 to 90 seconds EXTRAS: Map is given to you at the start of the game Grappling hook to swing you through the area. 14 Achievements Collect 32 fairies 18 Morphing objects Replay 18 HOP scenes, Jigsaw puzzle, and Rune game Strategy guide - 47 pages 16 Wallpapers, Soundtrack, Character Gallery HERE ARE THE DETAILS (SPOILERS) FOR THOSE WANT MORE INFORMATION ON THE HOP SCENES AND MINI-PUZZLES HOP SCENES: 3 Silhouette, 2 Lists of items, and 1 Spot-the- differences. The scenes are creatively designed and interactive. PUZZLES: Puzzle Rating: (1) Extremely easy (2) Easy (3) A little difficult or time consuming (4) Moderately difficult (5) Difficult REPEATED PUZZLE THROUGHOUT: Match-3 Game. When using the grappling hook, you play a Match 3 game in which you must maneuver the runes so that none remain. Increases in difficulty. A. Switch puzzle. Switch segments of a picture to recreate the picture. Rating: 1 B. Maze puzzle. Remove obstacles to move a teacart to a window. Rating: 2 C. Matching: On a radio, rotate dials to place note so they match up with a picture. Rating: 2 D. Rotating tiles puzzle. Rotate tiles to create a picture. Rating: 1 E. Sliding tiles puzzle. Slide puzzle pieces into place to create an image. Rating: 2 November 5, 2016
