Customer Reviews
The Keeper of Antiques: The Revived Book is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable : ) I enjoyed this game, the graphics, story-line and hidden object scenes were just fine and the music was really soothing :) The only thing that sort of ruined ( for me that is ) was the constant "Loading" between scenes. I understand that not all developers have the newest software and try to take that into account . All in all, if you can get past the constant "Loading" part You may really enjoy this game, I did !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nothing New in the Antique Shop Isn't it wonderful to travel through books or stories? Every reader can confirm it. But this antique tome is a nasty book of nightmares - and it ate already uncle Paul! It also magically reproduces and generates other books within the book. We (as niece Alexandra) slip thus in and out of our own and other people's nightmares, we travel trough time and space to find the core of evil. Of course one could ask whether it's a good idea to create the enemy in form of a book, nowadays, whilst dyslexia spreads in our schools like the flu. But as it turns out, the evil book, “the abyss of your worst nightmares”, is in fact ----- SPOILER ----- more a purple toy monster that bares rows of pointy teeth ... which are so long that they would puncture the monster's own lips if it'd ever try to close its mouth. Funny, not in the least threatening. I wonder whether this game was planned as a dark, uncanny game, but in course of making developed more into a fantasy light adventure. It appears a bit undecided yet. Not scary enough to be eerie, but not much humor either. It could well tolerate a bit more of it. Like the doll which jumps from a pendulum clock like a cuckoo, but squeaks like Mickey Mouse. Or Marquis de Laplace, especially in his dissolved state in the bonus chapter. Often I had the feeling that the game is just unintentionally funny. like the ghostly footprints of naked feet on the floor - whilst we distinctly hear the clack clack of heels. This is the first game of a new series. Now, what's new in Keeper of Antiques? We have for the first time a proper cast list for the voice actors! Thank you for this improvement, Elefun. Now we only need the ability to stop this list from scrolling too quickly past ... in order to read the names. Otherwise I didn't find many novelties. Since Alexandra speaks with the voice of Emma Roberts, the game at first reminds of a Fear for Sale edition. Later we dive into fantasy worlds à la Witches Legacy with entertaining, varied HOPs, for example silhouettes, interactive lists, stories with highlighted words. Nothing new, just the solid quality-play which we are accustomed to from this dev. But to be fair, there never will be a demand for new things in an antique shop ;) However, I was slightly disappointed that also puzzles and mini games are the same easy-peasy, fool-proof stuff which Elefun provides from time immemorial. This would have been the opportunity to revise the difficulty level and finally create puzzles for grown ups. If there is something new to discover, then most likely in the music. We may download astonishing 27 tracks, that's over one hour music! Although eleven are borrowed from recent WL and FFS games. Of the 16 new compositions, a few have a tendency to Ambient and Minimal. An interesting development; I've never heard Minimal in the highly symphonic Big Fish world before. The background sound is brilliant as always, a plurality of inventive noises, from the sharp snap of a guillotine to the shriek of an iron grate or the sloshing sound of ink drops. Did you know that the whole game contains over 1600 different SFX sounds? The hint-giving fairy in my inventory bewildered me a bit. There is in the whole game no fairy. Would a magnifier not have been more appropriate? An antique dealer has all the time to decipher small engravings or check ancient paintings. Confusing is also that uncle Paul and Arthur Bradley, the author of the nightmare book, look very similar with their shaved heads. It's quite easy to mistake the one for the other. I mean, why not give Arthur a hairdo from 19th century? Sideburns, whiskers? He does look too modern anyway. But what bothered me most is the poison which we must apply on the snappy plants. Yes, I know, these are fantasy plants. But it gives the completely wrong idea. One simply doesn't use herbicides, not whilst the whole world tries to rescue the last bees from Monsanto and glyphosate. Elefun always restrained of using biocides in games. I hope they won't start a new fashion now. “From now on, you are the Keeper of Artifacts,” says uncle Paul when he presents Alexandra with the key of the antique shop. I wonder how the girl will occupy the powerful but tricky position of a “Keeper”. What winks nervously when I look into the mirror is a slightly dreamy, sheepish plain Jane. Seemingly not quite made of the sterner stuff of adventurous heroines. But probably her looks deceive; we'll see :) CE or SE? For the soundtrack I would clearly say CE. Many tunes are inaudible or shortened in the game. For the story … hm. The main game has a proper ending. If you want to know what you miss with the Standard Edition, read my review of the CE.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ALEXANDRA OFF TO RESCUE UNCLE PAUL REVIEW FROM COMPLETED GAME and BONUS Well, I think this game is great for beginners, but for seasoned players its a bit too easy. There is: * Voiceovers (with dialogue); * Casual, Normal, Hard and Custom modes; * Interactive map; * Spark to help you. The graphics are good - colourful, yet sharp and crisp. It is easy to find everything you need. Sound is good and the music is orchestral. The hidden object games are highly interactive straightforward and find one item to use to find another item, etc. These are very easy to do and each one only takes a couple of minutes to do. Alternatively, if you can play Mahjoing if you don't feel like doing too many HOPs. The are a huge range of mini-games to play which I've seen all before. These are all very easy to do, with some only taking seconds to complete. However, if you are in the mood for relaxing and don't feel like a challenge, then these are perfect. So, do you get the CE or SE? In the CE you have to find 36 puzzle pieces, 33 morphing objects collect 7 gramophones, galaxies, portraits, horns and cages with birds. A finger comes over them (even in Hard and Custom modes), so there is no chance of missing them. However, if you do, just look in the interactive map and it will show you that there is still something to find in a particular scene. The CE game and bonus took me about 4 hours. Overall, as I say, if you just want to chill out and relax, or want to play a game without too much effort in between the bigger more demanding games that we play, then this is the game for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting Hidden Object Game I agree with the other reviews except that I found the "loading" between scenes extremely tedious. It impairs the flow of the game and near the end extreme boredom was setting in. As far as graphics/sound the quality is very good; story line is interesting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Guess My Uncle Will Remained Lost This is posted after playing the demo. This was not a fun game for me whatsoever. It is beyond the supernatural stuff we've been stuck with for the longest time, only this one, it is as much a fairy tale as it is .. I don't know what to call it. The graphics were well done and the sound was excellent. Music went along with the action in the story and was not bad at all. Colors were okay and the scenes were crisp and clean. There were a few new twists on old games, so nothing really new in this one. The hidden objects ran from lists to completing pictures from words in a story. The mini games were not very hard, because I completed most of them. As a helper, you have a salamander who lights areas and of course burns things out of your way. Just an added gimmick with little value. The map was helpful. It transported and showed where there were things to do. The story was, as Big Fish explains, getting your uncle out of an enchanted book. So tiring and predictable. I don't like to write negative reviews, because I realize someone on the other end put hours and hours in developing these games, but this one fell short even beyond my worse expectations. Again, it is time to get away from this supernatural theme the developers seem to have been stuck in for so long.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What a waste of $$ I purchased this without demo because of the rave reviews and what a mistake that was. Game was not a smooth flowing game, in fact changes between scenes, etc were very very slow thus making the game quite tedious. By trying to make the puzzles and HOS creative they were just as slow and tedious...I got to the point I just exited out and dumped the game. Colors were dark and off. I really can't say very much was good about this game. Not sure where all the great reviews were from. I've never had a game move so slowly both in storyline and mechanics.
