Demon Archive: The Adventure of Derek is rated 2.1 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent "Old School" Game This is an interesting and challenging game to play Upon starting the game, you will be asked the Screen size that you want to use. (You can change your screen size any time that you start the game). It only takes a few seconds to make the selection and you are ready to play. One suggestion I have is to be sure to "turn off" the Windowed mode. That way you will just have black surrounding your playing screen. No the game screen does not completely fill out my Monitor, but once you get involved with the game, you won't even notice the smaller screen. There is music -- many of the CEs that I have played lately are "silent". Some of the Puzzle Instructions are not clear -- you have to do trial/error or you can "skip" the puzzle. This may be called an "Old School" game and not be "State of the Art" (by today's standards), but is is a good game with an interesting story and variety of scenes. There is a HINT button in the game that will point to things that need to be done within the scene, but it will not tell you where to go next. The HINT also works in the HOP scenes. No there isn't a Map to indicate places of interest/actions--it is a "figure it out for yourself" type of game. This is a very good game to play and well worth a free game credit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoy! The first chapter is not hard to go through, and when I go on the next chapter, the puzzles become difficult, diverse and the story is out of my expectation! I like the setting with different themes and when I go through different scenes each by each, I had some fun to find out more clues and do enjoy it. So I recommend this game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Atmosphere! Settled into gameplay that turned out surprisingly good. Count Anthony has disappeared and there's a mystery to be solved. So far, so good. Colors are rich and vibrant. Music has a somber tone appropriate to story line. Not our usual razzle dazzle game which is okay with me as it is easy on the eyes. Items have to be dragged onto the scenes rather than a simple click. There are a few details "off" such as English accents with the characters and location in France, but no biggie. Gamers who are open to diversity and cherish a more simplistic approach, yet, still maintaining great artwork, music, puzzles, story line will appreciate. Enjoy! -Mama Mia-

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like this game This is a pleasant little game with no bells or whistles (which sometimes get in the way of enjoyment of the game). Items do have to be dragged from inventory to where they go and sometimes words are misspelled but neither detract from enjoyment of the game. It's nice just to play the game and not have to look for collected or morphing items and not have to achieve anything.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fresh detective game You can find many detective games in BFG but this one is fresh one made by a new team. I thought graphics are ok but some events and mini-games are impressive. Someone who wants to play different detective story could try this. I liked some symbol puzzles, characters plus hogs and had fun in them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sometimes different is better This is a classic case of read the reviews then try it for yourself. The reviews on this were SOooo bad that I tried it, just to see how bad it really was. And I was so entertained that I paid the 2.99 to finish it. Yeah it's old school, lo-tech, and really really easy hidden object scenes. And the language problem in translation is HYSTERICAL! So instead of being annoyed, I found it a nice break from well done same old storyline games. Its good to laugh so much, and some of the bad translations were so good I kept reading them over again! Some scenes are so bad you wonder....They did this on purpose, right? They KNEW this is funny, right? Very sorry game, but for me, very entertaining.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Very Average Game ... Graphics OK & Sound About Passable ... This Is One Of Those Games That Should Really Shine, But Sadly Lacks A Lot Of Detail, Finishing Touches & Quality Control ... It Does Require You To Think, And That Did Help To Make It Playable ... Only Just ... Worth A Voucher ... Try Before You Buy ...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from old fashioned, but interesting 10 years ago, the game would have been great. But without animated persons, without map, without any incdications according possible places, directions and/or actions, it is not state of the art. Nevertheless, it was challenging and took some couple of hours to play through.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a bad game -- for around 2010 The best of today's hidden object/adventure games are years beyond this one. Either the game itself is old or the software engine on which it is based is old and limited. Only 2 difficulty levels Can't turn off the click penalty in the HO scenes Can't click out of a zoom-in, must use "back" button Hint can't direct you to a different scene/room where there is something you can do now, but can only tell you what needs doing in the current scene/room, even if you don't have the items required to accomplish that task. Very long pauses in some scene changes without even a "loading" bar. I'm spoiled. I like the way the current games work and allow me to choose my options. This one would have been OK about 5 years back, but now? Not so much.
