Queen's Quest 2: Stories of Forgotten Past 4.4 5 10 10
One Of The Best Fantasy Themed Games Of The Year I've played a lot of different characters in a lot of different games. I've been a female detective, I've been a male detective, I've been a mother, I've been a father, I've been a sister, I've been a brother, I've been a witch, I've been an Aunt, I've been a Princess, I've been a Queen (I don't think I've been a King??) I've even been a vampire before! This however, is the first time I've been a bird, a hamster and a snail, yep, for about 5 minutes I joined the slug kingdom! There's a perfectly good explanation for all the shapeshifting I do, it's because I'm a Alchemist with the unique ability to transform into just about anything. Not only can I shapeshift, but I can whip up some pretty unusual recipes with just a few plants and berries, and they always seem to be at my disposal just when I need them the most! This certainly is an unusual game to say the least. Even though I'm sarcastically describing this game's plot and features, I had fun playing yet another game where the King calls upon my services. (at least I'm not a Princess, but now I think I want to be a King) and I immediately bought the Collector's Edition. No Alchemist would be credible without a portable Alchemist Box, so naturally I have a space age (you'll see what I mean) state of the art Alchemist Box that allows me to whip up a ton of shapeshifting potions. The icons to the left of the inventory bar will show you as either human or animal just in case you forget that you just drank a huge bottle of the potion you just got done whipping up. I just hope none of them wear off too soon, I'll really get myself into a pickle then! In the Collector's Edition version, each scene has a collectible Jigsaw Puzzle piece to find, (which I think may become available as a Screensaver, but most of the CE extras don't become available until the main game is complete, and I still have one chapter remaining) and some of the scenes have collectible Figurines to find which also give you brief descriptions about them, such as Trolls and Fairies and other mythical forest creatures. The Hidden Object Scenes are pretty decent, and every HOP was different. Just in the demo alone, there were several styles offered. There are Interactive list finds, Morphs, Multiple of the same objects, Multiples of sharp objects, Fragmented Object finds, Symbol finds, Progressive Interactive Silhouetted Shape finds, Outlined Drawing finds and even an interactive soup recipe with Silhouetted Shape finds. You can opt to play a Matching Pair game where you flip over tokens that aren't blocked by other tokens to find matching pairs, if no pairs are available you can click the arrows to rearrange the tokens. The Mini Games are fairly easy, but once again, they were fun to solve. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo as well as a few notable games after the demo: 1) Follow instructions to set the temperature and all the conditions before pouring the ingredients of 3 different recipes. 2) Reach the castle, when the arrow stops moving click to open up a problem to solve: A-use directional arrows in a specific order to maintain balance. B-find the right path through mountains by clicking on the mountain that stands out from the others. C-find pairs of identical birds. D-repeat the sequence of clouds lit up by thunder and lightning. 3) Place stained glass fragments correctly to form a picture. 4) Click on the thorny vines in a specific order and drag them to the bottom of the screen to remove them. 5) Ring the bells in the order depicted on the beam above them, using the cypher clue sheet to discover which bell corresponds to which musical note. 6) Compare the DNA of the two samples by choosing a microbe from one sample, then switching to the other sample and choosing it's matching microbe for a total of 3 matching microbe samples. 7) Solve the puzzle by combining the puzzle pieces in the right order, clicking will rotate each puzzle fragment. 8) Find an exit through the tunnels by interacting with each scene to open up the gates. Each gate has a specific symbol so you will have to figure out which symbols to follow using a clue shown. The Collector's Edition has 8 Wallpapers, 6 Concept Art pictures, 5 Music Soundtracks, replayable Hidden Object games, replayable Mini Games, 15 Collectible Character Figurines, 34 Collectible Jigsaw Puzzle pieces, 15 Achievements to earn, Fairytale Character Bios, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter. I've got a weird craving for some bird seed, gotta go, enjoy! October 19, 2016
I've Always Wanted To Be A Hamster (for only a short while) BASED ON 30 MINS OF PLAYING THE DEMO: Here's what I like about the game so far: 1. The colors and graphics are very distinct. Each scene is picture perfect with everything crisp, clear, and concise. 2. The cutscene at the beginning of the game piques your interest (the wolf chasing the young girl). 3. An interactive map that is provided for you at the beginning of the game. 4. You're an alchemist (or you can pretend you're a witch putting together a spell, as this is almost the Halloween season) who has to put together potions in order to accomplish certain feats. These potions give you the ability to fly and to shape-shift into various animals. 5. Interesting HOS and fun mini-games. As always, please check out the demo, as you might find that you like this game just as much as I did. Enjoy :) I highly recommend this game. October 19, 2016
A GREAT AND GORGEOUS FANTASY GAME WITH AN EXCELLENT STORYLINE What a wonderful surprise and a refreshing change after the recent dark and rather morbid games that have been released! Queen?s Quest 2 Stories of the Forgotten Past is a beautifully crafted fantasy game that is so well-designed that you feel like you?ve stepped into the story. I love everything about this game and for me it is an instant addition to my gaming library. In Queen?s Quest 2 you play the game as an alchemist who has shapeshifting abilities. Recently you concocted a potion that will allow humans to fly ? an awesome discovery that adds to your shape-shifting abilities. As the game begins you are called to the castle for a meeting with the king. Wolf, who was the King?s head of security and friend, has been killed and the King wants you to investigate the murder to find out who is responsible. Of course, the King?s general doesn?t feel you are a capable detective and he lets the King know it so, as a test, the King requests that you find and repair a malfunctioning portal. Once that little task is done your adventure begins. The graphics are gorgeous and full of beautiful color even though there are some darker scenes included as well. The characters are all realistic with excellent voiceovers and a dialogue that makes sense. There are many fantasy characters as well and I happened to love the talking cauldron early in the game whose antics had me laughing. Your tools include an alchemy kit where you can prepare various potions using ingredients that are found as you move through the game. There is also an interactive map that does change at times depending upon who you might be since your view of the realm may change from time to time. The HOP scenes are interactive and some have a bit of a twist. Some of the items are well-hidden and I did have to use the hint button a couple of times. For the most part, the HOPS were excellent with gorgeous graphics. Most of the puzzles seemed easy but they were still a lot of fun. If you read my reviews you know that I enjoy puzzles in a game but I don?t always need super challenging puzzles as sometimes it is just nice to play a game with puzzles that are a bit more relaxing. As I mentioned earlier I love this game. I think for right now I have had my fill of creepy games and have been waiting for something that is colorful and entertaining. Queen?s Quest 2 Stories of the Forgotten Past fills the bill and is like a breath of fresh air (particularly when I am soaring among the clouds ? lol). Another nice thing about the game is that although it is a fantasy game there is no evil menace that wants to take over the world but that doesn't mean there still isn't a lot of court intrigue. I love the fairy tale storyline that incorporates different tales that I read as a child. Although this game might not be one that everyone will like, I think there are many gamers out there who will enjoy this game. As always, I recommend that you try the demo first to see if Queen?s Quest Stories of the Forgotten Past is a game you will enjoy. October 19, 2016
If you like fantasy and potions, you'll love this This game looks simple, and it is SOMEWHAT, but it's also a good story with a strong female lead. She can make potions that do all sorts of things to her physical appearance. It's a good 'whodunnit'. The music was airy, the graphics were excellent and the nature sounds were so soothing. I hope you play this game!! October 19, 2016
Spectacular Graphics, Great Minigames This is my favorite purchase this year (during a sale no less!). The graphics are REALLY great, storyline and progress through the game is appropriate without requiring the map all the time to figure out where to go. Different minigames and even morphing objects in the HOS! October 26, 2016
4 stars for breaking the mold in storytelling and gameplay REVIEW BASED ON completed demo I CURRENTLY OWN 508 computer games. PROLOGUE I love when a new dev comes along and shakes things up. Lately, the casual game world has been in a rut, with game after game falling into the same simplistic and boring formula: underdeveloped storyline, too easy HO scenes, throwaway puzzles we?ve seen a thousand times before, and ?adventure mode? that consists mostly of finding shaped ?keys.? This game not only breaks the mold, it also tells the mold-maker in no uncertain terms that his services are no longer required?buh-bye. ONCE UPON A TIME ????? The King needs your alchemical expertise to solve the dastardly murder of his trusted friend and Captain of the Guard who, like you, is a shapeshifter, although he seems to manage it without complicated potions. So you pack up your handy portable potions kit?Professor Snape would be so proud!?and head to the palace. Once there, you use the royal portal to travel to the scene of the crime?where you uncover clues that intimate that a complex plot is afoot, a conspiracy that threatens the very kingdom itself. Note: While I generally detest games that mix fairy tales together, this game has taught me that it can be done cleverly and without detracting from the originals. PLAY THE GAME ???? In adventure mode, travel the kingdom searching for and analyzing clues using your portable potions kit (PPK). Your PPK will also enable you to change your own shape, eliminating the need for an adorable animal helper, thank the Universe. You?ll also be filling your inventory with potion ingredients and other items to advance your quest. (LoC: medium. FF: medium to high.) HO scenes are quite varied both in presentation and in level of challenge. For the most part, each scene has at least two presentations simultaneously. For example, the first scene was an interactive list where one interaction was a morphing object. Another scene was an interactive find and use. There was a straight list where each item found revealed part of a puzzle lock. Other included silhouette list, multiple named objects, multiples that fit a description?I?m fairly sure that I didn?t encounter the same type twice during the demo. (LoC: medium. FF: medium.) You can play some type of matching game instead, which I forgot to check out. While there weren?t a lot of puzzles during the demo, most were enjoyable. ? Repeating puzzle: Collect the necessary ingredients, then follow the recipe to make a potion. I won?t describe the types of potions, as that would be too much of a spoiler. (LoC: low to medium. FF: medium.) ? Repeating puzzle: Solve a circular jigsaw puzzle with rotating pieces to activate the portal. (LoC: low. FF: low.) ? Multi-step puzzle: While flying to the palace, work through obstacles on your plotted course. First, determine a path through crosswinds by clicking arrows in the correct order. Next, travel through the mountains by choosing the odd mountain out each time. Then, pass the flock of birds by pairing them off. Finally, get through the thunderstorm by repeating the lightning strikes. (LoC: low to medium. FF: medium.) ? Use your PPK to prepare two blood slides, then compare them under the microscope to find three matching microbes. (LoC: medium. FF: medium.) ? Following the instructions, gather necessary ingredients, then use the medic?s kit to prepare a healing poultice for the tower guard. (LoC: low to medium. FF: medium.) SIGHTSEEING ????? The scenery consists of charmingly hand-painted vignettes of fairy tale forests, medieval castles, woodland cottages, and the like, complete with anthropomorphic wildlife that are startlingly human in their mannerisms. The color palette beautifully reflects the mood of each scene without being either overly bright and neon or overly dark and depressing. Items in close up are clearly recognizable despite being somewhat stylized, in keeping with the game?s theme. NPCs are realistically drawn and move and lip synch in a lifelike manner. And animation is smooth. SOUNDBOARD ???? The music is varied and appropriate to the storyline. As the game begins, the first piece I heard was reminiscent of a movie soundtrack, majestically symphonic. Further on, there was a more lighthearted, playful instrumental. Environmental sounds are ok, and game sounds strike that perfect balance between notifying you of an accomplishment and jarring you from immersion. Voiceovers are professional and spot on, in my opinion. The King?s voice is deep and commanding, while his sergeant-at-arms speaks in an ingratiatingly sniveling voice that made me suspect him. The guard at the scene of the crime has a rich, full voice that made me immediately trust him. The little girl is actually voiced by a child. And the woodland hamster has a sort of neurotic British accent that reminds me of the White Rabbit. Truly, the voiceovers are brilliant. TOOLBOX & MECHANICS ????? Inventory locks open and includes plus items, as well as an icon indicating the shape you?re currently in (if you?re not human). Map indicates available actions and transports. I failed to look at the journal?sorry. There?s no helper, as I said. You have your PPK, which is used frequently and is not a gimmick. Navigation is intuitive and hotspots are adequate in size and placement. Four difficulty levels including custom, where you can set timed options down to the second?including hint recharge, sparkles, HO penalty?opt out of map markers, choose full/special/no tutorial, etc. BUGS & BOTHERS No technical difficulties, lags, or annoyances with Mac OS 10.11.6. While there were some translation errors, none affected gameplay, so I see no reason to subtract stars. EPILOGUE - Overall Rating: (23 total ?) 5 = 4.6 ? (rounded to ????) It?s a YES from me! And I?m off to demo the first episode in this series, which I apparently decided not to do based on reviews that said it was HO-heavy. Hopefully, I have another pleasant surprise in store for the day. Happy gaming, fishies! RECOMMENDED BY THIS DEV (???? or above, based on my rating at game?s release) New dev, so I have no recommendations from them. Sadness. However, I will offer some of my favorite fairy tale and fantasy games. Happiness! (Note: These are in no particular order, but I gave them all five stars when they were released. Please compare your system?s specs to the game?s requirements, as some of these are older games.) from the Awakening series: The Dreamless Castle, Moonfell Wood from the Chimeras series: Tune of Revenge CE from the Christmas Stories series: The Nutcracker from the Dark Parables series: The Red Riding Hood Sisters CE, The Swan Princess and the Dire Tree CE from the Dark Ream series: Queen of Flames CE, Princess of Ice CE, Lord of the Winds CE from the Drawn series: The Painted Tower, Trail of Shadows, Dark Flight CE from the Margrave series: The Curse of the Severed Heart CE, The Blacksmith?s Daughter CE from the Nevertales series: The Beauty Within CE, Shattered Image CE, Hidden Doorway CE from the Nightmare Realm series: Nightmare Realm, In the End CE from the Reflections of Life series: Equilibrium CE from the Rite of Passage series: Child of the Forest CE One-Offs: The Beast of Lycan Isle CE, Epistory: Typing Chronicles, Namariel Legends: Iron Lord, Unfinished Tales: Illicit Love CE October 19, 2016
Really enjoyed my time playing this game! If you are looking for a challenge with a whimsical edge, look no further than Queen's Quest 2: Stories of Forgotten Past! From puzzles to potions this game has everything you need to immerse yourself into a fantastic world of fantasy & adventure. I personally love to find things and mix up potions, I also enjoyed being turned into a bird,a slug lol, a hamster etc. My favorite part are the hidden object scenes and this game did not disappoint. There are a variation of interactive Hops, Frogs, silhouettes, puzzle pieces, match and find various objects. If you don't like the HOPs, you can switch to a match 2 game. The mini games were fun and relatively easy to moderate in difficulty, nothing we haven't seen before but still fun. This is the first game in a long while that I just did not want to stop playing and I never once found myself bored or confused. Great fun, with gorgeous graphics and nice music. Definitely worth buying! I highly recommend! October 19, 2016
LOOK MA ... I CAN FLY REVIEW FROM COMPLETED GAME AND BONUS This is a lovely game to play with younger family members which would keep them entertained on those cold winter days. There is: * Casual, Advanced, Expert and Custom modes of play; * Voiceovers (with dialogue); * Objectives book; * Interactive map; * Potion making kit. The graphics are stunning - very colourful and crystal clear. It was lovely roaming around the scenes, never knowing what to expect. Sound is good and the music is orchestral. There are a huge variety of hidden object games to play - interactive straightforward, silhouette and fragmented. There are morphing objects in the HOPs as well. You will also find a certain amount of the same object - like crystals and sharp objects to break up the HOPs. These are all very easy to do because everything is clear to see and to grab the item you need. The mini-games are fun to do - very easy and you don't need a lot of thought to do them. Younger family members will easily be able to do them as well. You will be making quite a lot of potions and you will be finding all the items you need as you go through the game. I think there are about four to make in the main game and one to make in the bonus. These are not hard to do. Each time you make a potion, you will use it straight away. So do you get the CE or SE? In the CE there are 15 Achievements, finding 15 figures and 34 puzzle pieces (main game only) and the usual other extras. The 34 puzzle pieces to find have a good challenge. A hand DOES NOT come over them and some are hard to find. The 15 figurines are easy to see and you can grab them as you go. All up the game and bonus took me about 5 hours or so, not skipping or hinting anything. I enjoyed it, even if it was a bit young for me. Its relaxing and I could take breaks to do other things and go back to it, and know exactly where I was. Overall, a terrific game and definitely worth having a look at. Happy playing fishies.

I NEVER KNEW ALCHEMY COULD BE SO MUCH FUN! If you are into fantasy and magic this game has it all. Mixing potions, talking animals, you name it, it's got everything. The colors are vibrant and the graphics are very well done. It is an easy flowing game, so there is no real sense of urgency, that I prefer. I also thought the music was just too lyrical for a murder plus fantasy game, it didn't set the right tone for me. However, there is no shortage of things to do and the satisfaction of completing one quest after another makes the structure very good. You don't have to wait until 30 minutes later to complete something, you just keep going. I recommend the game to those that love fantasy. It's just not my cup of tea. Thanks, Mia. October 19, 2016
More a game for the kids. Since I only played the demo & won't be buying, I gave this game 3 stars across the board for fairness' sake, & called it a day. While the premise of this game - that of being an alchemist who shape-shifts - was quite appealing to me, there was too much about it I found off-putting to want to play beyond the demo. Fantasy is my preferred genre, but this particular game was just too cutesy for me; as examples, mixing a potion in a chatty, animated potion pot, & having dealings w/ the "pretender to the throne" of the snails. Those are things my 8-yr.-old granddaughter would probably get a real kick out of, but for me, it was just a bit much. Some of the graphics are too "cartoony" for me as well, not in the sense of being poorly drawn, but of being more what I'd expect to see in a children's story book. And then there's the "magic mushroom"...ie, the hint button, which is a largish mushroom that bounces up about every 3 seconds or so, just as though it has the hiccups. This game might be fine choice if you have young'uns to play it w/, & I do give the devs credit for coming up w/ something new, at least to me...just wish it had been done a bit differently.
