Reflections of Life: Dark Architect 4.2 5 17 17
Fantastic Worlds Many years ago, the Architects and Guardians created many fantastic Worlds. One of the Architects was deeply in love, but the woman he loved fell ill and perished, leaving him bitter and desperate, desperate to resurrect her! This feat bears a heavy price however, the destruction of Gaudium and it's Queen who is the Keeper of the Dark Ruby which is capable of destructing this world. Elemental Monsters have been sent to Gaudium and are creating havoc of epic proportions, as a Guardian, Grace must find the strength to defeat the Dark Architect and his minions before their entire world disappears into nothingness. My favorite feature of the Reflections of Life series is finding the 65 Observers, those one eyed creatures that love to hide in plain sight, but these creatures are only available in the Collector's Edition.(There is a tab on the left of the screen that will let you know when all have been found in the scene, if you haven't found them all, you won't get the chance to go back to some locations when they have been completed.) You will also be equipped with an Architect Lense that will allow you to discover hidden places, but each lense can only be used once. There is a Mini Game associated with the Lense, swapping pie shaped pieces to create an image. Eventually you will receive an Amulet that will help you translate the ancient languages, which also has a Mini Game associated with it where you recreate symbols by dragging several segments until completed. Many of the Plus Sign inventory items also have small puzzles to solve, and your trusty Owl has returned to help you out with items out of reach. There are several smaller Zoom Zone Hidden Object Scenes, and the main HOP's come in several variations. There are interactive List finds, scenes requiring you to replace the items back into the scene, finding items that match the descriptions given, finding multiples of a single item and even an interactive play where you find items within three different play scenes, switching back and forth between acts to find and place items related to the story being told. You can choose to play a Match 3 game instead of most of the HOP's. The Mini Games are in abundance, some of which are very clever. The following are brief descriptions of some of the games you will play during the demo: 1) Set 6 candles straight, clicking on one affects others. 2) Recreate the color and pattern shown using specific colors in a specific order. 3) Swap tiles to create a portrait image. 4) Use a torch to melt the ice in a specific pattern. 5) Fight the Elemental monster using the correct shield, then the sword to attack. 6) Rotate tiles to restore the image. 7) Place broken mirror shards correctly. 8) Swap tokens to match their color coded slots. 9) Rotate and swap flower petals so all flowers are uniform in color. 10) Complete the scene using sliders to control the position, size and rotation of the images. 11) Rotate the rims to make the pieces correspond with the continents. 12) Swap facial features to match the masks shown on each bust. 13) Paint each window segment with the color shown on the center segment. The Collector's Edition has 15 Achievements, 65 hidden Observers, replayable Hidden Object Scenes and Mini Games, Match 3 Games, 8 Music Soundtracks, Movies, 10 Wallpapers, 3 Lucky Gifts, two Bonus Chapters: Liberation and Magic Sight, and a built in Strategy Guide, enjoy!

One again a really good one. My rating is based on completion of SE and fulfillment of all my personal requirements. - Story: continues predecessor Reflection of Live stories. You have to rescue the queen and save the fantastic worlds. Identify a traitor amongst the architects and fight against an evil demon. If you will fail, worlds will be destroyed. - Difficulty can be customized: You can chose map issues, glitter, plus item indicator, penalty, hint and skip recharge time. Unfortunately, you can?t exclude helping texts. Three levels of difficulty are preset. - Graphics: The graphics are great, good, detailed and prospectively drawn. According to the fantastic worlds, the sceneries are fantastic as well. - Animation: is amazing, really great - Music: interesting, a little bit at the ?dramatic side?. Fitting background noises. - Voice-overs: good spoken, matching the characters, perfectly synchronized - Tools: you have an interactive map ? not really necessary, because you have to investigate 3-5 locations. You don?t have to go back. You have an owl, which is fetching otherwise not reachable things for you. And you do have a really helpful amulet. - HO?s: there are different types of HO included. Really good done, sometimes interactive. With silhouettes, riddles and more. - Mini games: There is a broad range of different mini games, some are pretty difficult. - Length: Is decent. I needed nearly 5 hours for completing. That?s fine from my point of view. I recommend this game for sure. It is challenging, has a proper length and highest quality. February 17, 2016
CAN YOU SAVE THE QUEEN AND THE WORLDS Let me begin by saying that I absolutely love the Reflections of Life series. Each game in the series is well-crafted and long (at least for me because I am a gawker and look at everything). The games are beautiful with gorgeous graphics that are stunning. This game is so full of things to look at and to click on just to see what happens. If you enjoy a feast for the eyes then this might be the game and series for you. In Dark Architect, the worlds are under attack and Queen Clio was saved in the nick of time by your uncle as she was about to plummet to her doom. A meeting of the guardians has been called and you, Grace, have been sent to assist Queen Clio and to prevent the destruction of the Worlds by some unknown evil force and its minions. Using your wits, and aided by your trusty owl, you will overcome a multitude of challenges in this incredible game. The game offers four modes of gameplay including the custom mode. As noted above the graphics are terrific and rich in color and clarity. The voiceovers and sound complete the package making this an extremely impressive game. The game has five chapters plus the two bonus chapters that are included in the CE version. My experience with the previous games in the series is that the chapters are long. The strategy guide has fifty-two pages and that is usually an indication of game length. Your tools include an interactive map, your owl companion, and special lenses that you will find as you move forward in the game. Each lens can be used only once and must be activated before use by playing a mini-game but in this case it adds to the fun. The HOPS are very well-designed and puzzle-like. There are many different styles in the mix but if you don?t want to search for items or figure out how to complete the scene, you do have the option of switching to a match-3 game. The mini-games, although not too difficult, are a lot of fun with many of them requiring a lot of thought. By now you are aware that I think this is a wonderful game. Even though I am rather tired of the storyline of some evil bent on destruction, with the gorgeous package in this game it can be overlooked. Of course, the game was an instant buy for me and one that I will replay many times in the future. If you want a beautiful fantasy game with excellent gameplay features, then Reflections of Life Dark Architect might just be the game for you. February 12, 2016
Reflections of Life: Dark Architect Loved this game. It was perfect for a snowy weekend and the graphics, story line and puzzles were perfect. February 15, 2016
Absolutely stunning game! I loved this game! Everything about it was just fun and relaxing but the best part were the graphics especially the middle part of the game. Stunning!! The game has everything a hidden object gamer could love, map, voice overs, custom mode, great story that doesn't get lost during the game play and the stunning graphics. I just wish the game was longer I was so sad when it came to an end. Yes I highly recommend this game. May 12, 2016
One of the best This is one of the best. It was beautiful with no harrowing blood dripping scenes or dirty bathrooms. There was a sense of space. All the games were possible with a bit of effort, and I managed all but one of them. Loved having to find small hidden eyes. The characters were all very acceptable. In short there is absolutely nothing I can criticise. Definitely the sort of game I find mind challenging and relaxing. April 7, 2016
another great game in the series you are trying to get the dark ruby back so the evil queen can't use it. a young man lost his love when she perished and now he is working on a way to bring her back. the evil queen has been left lose by him to bring her back. he causes all kinds of trouble. there is a custom level and an interactive map. i had to skip most of the mini games and the HO scenes weren't just lists but other kinds as well. sequel of course there could be.......

Fun to Play Graphic are Great, Music Good, Good Story, HOPs Great, Music fits the game. Puzzles are just fun some hard others are medium and easy. Enjoyed this game a bunch. Able to get all achievements first play thru. This game is interesting and you want to play all the way to end in one sitting!!! Only problem is the Lucky Gifts I only found 1 and at end of game it was not in the extras. But still great!!!! February 28, 2016
Another winner Love Reflections of Life Games .This is a real gem. Couldn't stop playing. February 23, 2016
GOOD FANTASY GAME REVIEW FROM COMPLETED COLLECTORS EDITION GAME AND EXTRAS This is a game that would be great to play with younger family members, etc. There is: * Voiceovers (with dialogue); * Casual, Advanced, Hardcore and Custom modes; * Tasks board; * Owl to help you reach objects; * Interactive map; * An Amulet to help. The graphics are very colourful and bright. As I went to different worlds, I would stop and stare around. All very beautiful and cute. Sound is good. The music is orchestral and lovely to listen to. The hidden object games are varied - with putting items back, interactive straightforward, silhouette, etc. These are very easy to do and don't take long before you can move on. There are a huge variety of mini-games ranging from very easy to slightly more challenging. Some are matching pairs, playing embroidery tic-tac-toe, playing the harp, etc. I personally found them very easy to do, but if you are doing these with a youngster, then they may need (or may not!) your guidance to finish them. You have an amulet that you will use a lot to decipher letters and to undertake tasks. This will glow when you need to use it. So do you get the CE or SE? In the CE, there are 65 Observers to find, three games - Dark Architect, Liberation and Magic Sight, 15 Achievements (some with bronze, silver and gold) and other extras. All up the game and extras took me about 5 hours to do, playing Hardcore and not skipping or hinting anything. I enjoyed the game and thought it was well presented and the developers took their time to get it right. Definitely recommended. February 12, 2016
