Mysteries of Neverville: The Runestone of Light is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Different Let's start off by saying I loved the story line. It is an old theme with a new twist. I like the twist. It looks too easy from the get go but believe me it is not. Some puzzles start off as easy but they get harder. The graphics need work. There is no denying that. It's a good game, Really!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from People Say There Is An Evil Presence Lurking In The Fog The runestone of life has disappeared from the tower, and with the runestone missing there is nothing to protect the people of Neverville from the evil northern fog! Valerie and Roland are the Guardians of Neverville, sworn to protect the citizens of the town and she is searching for her father Cygnus Rastlin, hoping that he will have a solution to finding the runestone, but he seems to be missing as well. To make matters worse, Grimhall, a necromancer with a bad reputation and evil intentions has found a way to escape his stone chamber prison. This isn't a bad little game, the graphics are simple, but sharp and well defined. The characters are very lifelike, although there are no lip movements, and there are a lot of dialog boxes to read. This is mostly an adventure game with a lot of mini games and puzzles. None of the mini games are hard, in fact most are puzzles that can be done quickly such as moving metal plates of different sizes and directions to expose the keyhole in the middle of the board similar to a game of blocks. There are games where you need to turn over cards two at a time trying to match two similar cards such as a feather quill and an ink bottle. The mini game I liked the best was swapping gnomes of different colors so that no two gnomes with the same color are sitting on the same path. There is a good amount of Hidden Object Scenes, the scenes are well lit and the objects are easily identifiable. and they are list finds. This isn't an over the top game with all the bells and whistles, but it is a really entertaining game with lots of puzzles to keep you busy, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OFFERS SOME UNIQUENESS AND MAYBE SOME RECYCLING Seems there are a lot of dangerous fogs out there lately. But the story is interesting and gameplay was very good and occasionally quite challenging. HOS are very, very crowded in spots, requiring patience to find everything. But I've never seen this before, you can actually skip HOS after a while. Some puzzles are quite challenging and a little different (ex: a slider puzzle, where each piece can be moved up and down as well as sideways, which oddly made them more difficult). Graphics are beautiful. Sometimes I felt like I played portions of the game before - but it may be recycled scenes which didn't bother me much since they were so pretty. Lovely game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beware Cowboy Builders when creating a stone tomb for your local evil necromancer! Yep, you've guessed it, he's escaped again and is going about his nefarious deeds with the help of wolf spirits and a traitorous local. But, do not fear, a guardian has arrived in her bodycon armour and will no doubt save the day! Despite the fact that the story is nothing really new, it is a fun game with a good level of challenge. HOSs were all simple lists and are revisited at least once. Some items are very small, but they are all pretty doable, you can just skip after a while if you get fed up or use a hint. I liked the puzzles, variations on familiar formats, but not as straightforward as you may at first think. Three modes of play can ramp up the challenge further (Normal/Hard/Detective) In the descriptions of each level it mentions "achievement items" and I got a bit excited, but I haven't come across anything out of the ordinary and it may only mean 'pick-ups'. No map or journal so be prepared to track back if you have been given a clue and maybe have a notebook to hand. The hint does allow you to jump to the required location so, if you know where you want to go, you can use it as a jump map. No penalties, but it does take a little while to recharge. My only complaint was the interaction with other characters. The voices were good, the graphics realistic but I like to read the narrative and, if they speak slowly, click to continue. Now it may just be my poor old eyes but the writing looked very blurry to me and gave me a headache! :-(( That aside, it is a perfectly nice game. Ideal for a sale day or a game coupon. I will be buying tomorrow and getting my punch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent PCC Purchase – Standalone SE! BASED ON DEMO IN BRIEF A great look to this excellent standalone Standard Edition game. The graphics are clear and clean, with art that is quite lovely to look at without getting too whimsical. I could have asked for a character who looked less like an adolescent’s dream date, though, and that sort of thing normally just washes straight over me. The intro is well done. I loved the wolf spirit. And the rocking of the train. The voices are all good. Well acted, if a little drawn out occasionally. The music is forgettable (which means, can’t remember anything at all!), and the sounds likewise failed to make any specific impression, other than that the gloomy atmosphere ‘felt’ right to all senses. This is a fairly dark game, but I don’t think it is too hard to see, and I wouldn’t exactly call it creepy. But it is certainly not a comfortable place to be for a “Guardian of Neverville.” That’s us, by the way. Valerie, daughter of Cygnus Rastlin, protector and guardian of the town, currently MIA after following an evil necromancer into an equally evil fog. We must find Dad, the stolen Runestone of Light that is the town’s protection, defeat the necromancer, and the thief who took the Runestone, deal with the betrayal of someone close, and all before dinner! Okay, I added the dinner bit. But you can see you have a lot on your plate! The gameplay is nice. There are many more puzzles than HOPs, they are everywhere. Mostly they are slightly different tangents on known games, but I had a lot of trouble finishing more than one. The HOPs are standard word lists, no interaction, but, here’s one for the puzzlers – you can skip it in the same way as any other puzzle. You still have hint, if you want. The HOP scenes are visited twice. There is a hint that is a real hint – and if it will take you away from your current location, it will teleport you. This replaces the totally absent journal and map. There are 3 levels of difficulty. There is no inventory lock, and I missed having one. COMBINED IMPACT Great game. Perfect for a punchcard credit, or I’d even pay real $$ for this one. Nicely put together and fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from To short I enjoyed the game, and the hint button is really good, it's like an interactive map, it takes you to where you need to be. I'm disappointed the game was way to short. You have to defeat the necromancer and find the runes, and the guy you thought was on your side, isn't, and then you start to find the runes, you have to keep slaying a wolf with potions, and you have to find the ingredients for these potions, I do recommend the game, even though it's to short

Rated 3 out of 5 by from get your eyelasses the HO scenes are kind of crowded and the items are very often hard to find. i don't very often use hints in these scenes but i had to in this game. the objects were very well hid and small in some cases. i played on the easiest level and the hints took a while to recharge. the skips did, as well. i think i noticed this because there is not map or diary. these are other cons as far as i am concerned. it is not a bad game but i got tired of trying to figure out where to go all the time and waiting on hints. yeah, i am a wuss, but i play for enjoyment, not challenge. a little thinking is ok but i just want to sit down and play, not think so much. the mini games were very far out of my league.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Short and Sweet After reading good things about this game I decided to try it. I have to say it is disappointing. The storyline is a girl (you) help to rid the town of an evil being who controls people. It's simplistic, no morphing objects, collections, or awards. There are only a few places to travel to, no map, but the hint button will not only tell you what to do, it will transport you there if you wish. The colors are good, but graphics are a little grainy. I think if there was more time put into making this game it could have been a very good game. A few of the h.o.'s have incorrect grammar, example; calling an artichoke a cabbage. Music is fine, voice overs are pretty good, the main character's voice is a little over done, and she looks kind of ridiculous in a pose from some girly magazine. There are several kinds of puzzles, easy to do, not frustrating; matching pictures, shooting gallery, deciphering symbols. There is a lot of back and forth, but the hint jumps help out there. Just when you get to the point of fighting the big boss and think things are finally going to happen, the game abruptly ends! That's it! "The End" appears and that's all! I will not be playing this game again, I wish they would redo it and make it longer, I would try it again if they did. But until then, no thanks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointingly Short This game had potential, but ended rather abruptly. Other games of similar price contained more content.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I WISH I LOOKED LIKE VALERIE! Not a bad game which I played in an afternoon. You have Normal, Hard and Detective modes of play. I played on Detective throughout the game. The graphics are very good. I had no trouble finding items in the HOS and locating all the clues. I didn't really notice the music. The hidden object games were standard and pretty easy to play. I didn't spend that much time of them. There were no teeny tiny or blurry undecipherable objects to find. The mini-games I quite enjoyed. I've seen them all before. A couple of puzzles peaked my interest when they were harder than they looked. Nice surprise. All up I think the game took me about three and half hours. A nice afternoon spent (raining and cold - middle of winter - blah). Overall, I recommend this game. I think its worth playing.
