Spirits of Mystery: Chains of Promise is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from really enjoyed this game. there is a custom level and an intearctive map. great hint system. varied HO scenes. you are called to attend the wedding of a fellow princess. she had been promised to isla for his healing her when she was young. the king, her father, is adamant that she marry because he gave his word to isla when he cured her. her father doesn't believe her that he intends to kill him once they are married. he just wants the kingdom. he will do anything to get it. you have to help your friend out of this mess. sequel...i feel sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Break These Chains! When Princess Adele became deathly ill, her father pleaded with Isa to do whatever it takes to make her well. The evil sorcerer agreed to heal the Princess if the King would give his daughter's hand in marriage and his blessings to Isa. Left with no choice, His Majesty gives Isa a "King's Promise" little does the King know, that Isa has big plans for the Kingdom of the Black Unicorn, evil plans! Princess Adele has sent for her best friend (a.k.a. Princess You) hoping that you can save her from her evil suitor, and save the Kingdom of the Black Unicorn, before it's too late! Your dear sweet Nanny's mother was from The Black Unicorn Kingdom, where gargoyles hide and protect the Kingdom's best kept secrets. Before you leave on your journey, Nanny gives you her mother's special mirror which will expose the secrets hidden behind the gargoyle symbols throughout the kingdom. To charge this magical mirror you must find all 6 hidden gargoyle symbols floating in the air, and then use the mirror on the gargoyle symbol to reveal secret codes and hidden compartments. There are complex inventory items that require further interaction before using some of the items, such as combining that item with another inventory item, or repairing the item so it can be used. The Collector's Edition offers Achievements to earn and 24 hidden collectible Stamps or wax seals, that will unlock the Bonus Chapter once they have all been found. The Hidden Object Scenes are Interactive list finds, as well as finding items in pairs. The only complain I have is that the scenes are repeated which I think is very boring. Because the graphics are hand drawn, the Hidden Object Puzzles are very cartoonish looking and some of the items aren't very realistic (but it is a fantasy themed game after all) The Mini Games are decent, but nothing really new such as moving gems into 4 different slots by selecting each gem's directional arrows and using other gems as bumpers. There are a lot of smaller puzzles requiring you to select buttons and symbols to push in a specific order, and even a Crossbow and Arrow interactive game where you line up the crosshairs on the flying gargoyle to hit him 3 times. One of my favorite games was jumping Unicorns over each other on several different shelves until only one remains, and, you can jump up a shelf, down a shelf, to the right or left and even diagonally. The Collector's Edition has 9 Wallpapers, 9 Concept Art pictures, 4 Screensavers, 24 Collectible Stamps, Music, 14 Achievements, replayable Hidden Object Puzzles and Mini Games, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Adventure, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CAN YOU FIND OUT WHO IS PULLING ISA'S CHAINS In Chains of Promise the latest game in the Spirits of Mystery series we encounter some familiar faces among them the ever present nanny and the evil wizard Isa. As our tale begins Isa is back to his conniving ways as promises a grieving king that he will save the king’s dying daughter if the king will grant him any wish. Fast forward many years and the now grown daughter, Princess Adele, is betrothed to marry none other than the court advisor Isa. You have received an invitation to Adele’s wedding and must now journey to the Black Unicorn kingdom to attend but while traveling you read a note from Adele begging you to prevent the marriage. And thus our tale of intrigue begins. This game comes to us from one of my favorite development teams that always include awesome and beautiful hand drawn artwork in its games. The thing I have noticed about this game and with others in the series is that many of the characters are recycled from previous games but if you haven’t played the other games in the series then you won’t notice the familiarity. In Chains of Promise the developer offers us four modes of gameplay: Casual, Advanced, Hard and Custom. If you select the custom mode you can set your hints to recharge virtually as quickly as you like with a range from 5 to 200 seconds and the same range applies to skipping puzzles. The sound track if very good and I happen to love the signature theme music from the Bunny Team that is present in all of their games. As always the voice-overs are excellent and we once again have lip-synced characters. Unfortunately the tools include what is becoming another of this team’s signature pieces, a mirror that when filled with power is used to reveal that which is hidden. I don’t know when the message will get through that many of us dislike these types of items or gimmicks included in our games. The other useful tool is our transporter type integrated map that is found at the beginning of the game. The HOPS are vintage and do require some interaction. At least during the demo I didn’t find any of the progressive type where we must find one thing and then use it to find another and so on. Those happen to be my least favorite so I am quite happy with what I have encountered thus far in the game. I will say that most of the puzzles were easy but one of them seemed a bit trickier than usual and perhaps it was only because I was rushing a bit and didn’t want to think about the puzzle too long. In my experience the puzzles that the Bunny Team includes in its games become progressively more difficult as we move further along so I know that there will be some challenge ahead. As is the case with many other BFG members, I have been playing HOPA games for years and I first acquired this love of the genre and cut my teeth on games from the Bunny Team. I have found most of their games to be very enjoyable and wrapped in a package that presents everything I look for in a game. I have to admit that as seasoned as I am in finding my way around in HOPA games, Chains of Promise was a bit of a challenge because it was not always apparent what I needed to do next to move forward. For many the game will be considered very easy but I happen to love the level of challenge that is just right for the way I like to play. I play HOPA games to relax and unwind so I don’t enjoy playing a game that I might find frustrating. Chains of Promise is just right for me and given the package of beautiful graphics, relaxing music, fun gameplay, great storyline, and wonderful puzzles and HOPs, it is everything I want in a game. Who knows, maybe this time we will finally get rid of Isa – lol. Although the game was an instant buy for me, as always, I recommend that you try the demo to see if it is a game you will enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Amazing Edition to this Fantastic Series!!! This was an insta-buy for me. Your objective is to defeat sorcerer Isa and the evil force standing behind him in Spirits of Mystery 5: Chains of Promise CE or SE Edition. Isa decided to take power over the kingdom of the Black Unicorn by marrying its princess Adele and killing her father afterwards. Firstly he put a curse on her and when her father asks someone for help the curse is removed in exchange of a promise to arrange their marriage. And now, when the marriage is tomorrow, he’s preparing something devious to kill the king right after it! Adele is your BEST FRIEND so you have no choice but to face Isa and his dark master! This installment is an awesome adventure. I thought the graphics, puzzles, hos, and voice overs were spot on! Incredible game play for anyone and everyone! I loved it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun game - what you'd expect from the Spirits of Mystery Series Just finished this - enjoyed it: the HOAs were well done, the graphics are good and the music was enjoyable. I do have to say this game has the WORST voice-overs I have ever experienced in ANY game... so just don't let that bother you...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Straight-ahead fun game with some nice variations and beautiful graphics I will leave the detailed inventorying to others who have done a great job, and just add a few comments. ERS games are among my favorites, and I have played several, including a couple in this series. I played the SE version of Chains of Promise. I was very happy with it. It delivered a few hours of pleasant gaming. Not too hard, not too short or super long either. I generally play casual/moderate/custom (no twinkles on HOPs). I am not looking for a headache by challenging myself, just an entertaining escape. The story being new or believable is secondary to me, since none of them, including this one, are really, I just like it to flow and end nicely. I dislike abrupt or truncated endings as many games seem to have (whats up with that?). This game is a traditional fairytale theme and ends OK, though as usual somewhat abruptly. The design and visuals are superb, though a little dark overall, (as with many games for some reason). For me the visuals are a major component of my enjoyment. The villain cracked me up, he is such the epitome of a ridiculously villainous rogue with his exaggerated chin and smirk. Smatterings of LoTR elements (elvish stuff) and as someone else mentioned, the gargoyle prominent in the titles and bumpers is not a big feature in the game, only appearing once, as I recall. One complaint: the voice overs sound like they are simulated computer-generated monotone making me wonder why? non-english origin? economics? It would kind of take me aback each time someone spoke, and was a bit off-putting and distracting, but not enough that it ruins the game for me. Music is pleasant, classical, repetitive refrain I recognize from another game. I almost always find the music too repetitive or oppressive and turn it very low or off. The game flows fairly nicely although I did use the pointers on the map frequently. Without I would have been bumbling a lot more. Some of the plays were less than intuitive and I had to use hints, which I rarely do. I never needed to resort to the walkthrough. Enjoyed the mini-games, and HOPs, which although they are the standard fare, were creatively varied enough throughout so as not to be disappointingly repetitive, nor were they too hard or too easy. Maybe a little on the easy side for those who prefer more challenge. I didn't really like the 'Unicorn Figurine' mini-game and skipped it. However, I did really enjoy the 'Isa vs the Dragon' mini-game, kind of like checkers on steroids. I would go back and replay it if I could. Took me a few tries to get it but it was a fun challenge learning the trick to winning. Smooth play except a couple minor glitches and a sticky 'torn map' puzzle (pieces hard to rotate). I don't know if the CE offers much more to commend it, but for me this was a satisfying buy as an SE, definitely one I'd hop on with a credit or discount. This is the kind of game I would come back to just for some relaxing fun and leaves me receptive for another from the series and or developers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This SE sort of played out like a CE but better! There was a long lag in between scenes and some minor quirks here n' there in the SE version I just completed. But once I persevered, the game flowed seemingly well. I agree with one of the reviewers that oftentimes I find SE's are somewhat better than CE's although the devs are catching on and I'm seeing improvements in CE versions these days. With CE's there are collectibles, morphing objects, etc. but I don't need wallpaper, or to download music from their soundtrack, although I have done so if a certain piece sounded pretty good. This game and the storyline was pretty good. I really liked the variety of HOS the devs offered; sometimes the same scenes were used for them but I liked it nonetheless. I enjoyed making the potions plus the arrows of light task, which was pretty cool. The only thing that didn't follow suit was that some tasks were out of sequence as far as places were concerned, for e.g., mind you, you're locked up in prison but the item that's needed, among others, is literally outside and I was able to retrieve the item from the outside to free myself. Go figure! However, the voiceovers were great; the music was good; the artwork was rather cartoonish but very good, and the mini-games were wonderful. I'm giving this game a 4-star and I recommend the SE version for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good game for a free game play This game was okay. I used one of my game credits to get it, so that may influence my review. If I had actually paid for it I may have given it a 3 star rating. The graphics were decent. VOs were a little stiff. HOs and mini games were pretty simplistic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Game, Good Play Experience I like games where the solutions to puzzles make sense. It makes it easy to figure out what you need and therefore what you need to look for. The storyline is fine - not terribly engaging but not boring either. The graphics are good and the game runs well. Overall a good way to stay entertained for a bit!
