Rite of Passage: Embrace of Ember Lake is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from What's up with the negatives? I, for one, care nothing about morphs or collectibles. To me they add nothing to a game. That's why I waited for the SE version. I found the storyline interesting and the graphics bright, colorful and clear. I purchased it after completing the demo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This game is challenging I love this game. At the beginning of playing this game, I was amazed by its attractive graphics, then the mystery story also made me curious. the level of this game is also challenging but still fun to play. this game is cool. I recommend this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a great HO game it is a game about your brother, jason, leaving you with a girl and told her to move away from ember lake. so you did and when the girl, halsey, turned 16 something strange started happening. you realize that your brother would know what is going on so you and halsey go back to ember lake. there a mysterious agency is looking for you and halsey and jason is keeping himself away from you but communicating by phone. i played on the custom level. there is a good hint system.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I LIKE THE CE VERSION BETTER BUT THAT'S BECAUSE THEY HAVE SCENE MORPHS & HO MORPHS Completed Game approximately 6.0 Hours (including completion of all puzzles & Bonus Chapter 22 Scene Locations +6 CE Bonus Chapter Difficulty Range: Beginner-Intermediate Halsey is just your typical 16-year old girl, except for the fact that she was kidnapped from an experimental laboratory, possesses weird powers, and seems to be the key to the strange crystal growing deep within Ember Lake. Now it seems everyone else knows about her connection to the crystals that are slowly mutating the nearby residents, but why Halsey? Morphing Objects/Collectibles (CE version only) Each of the 27 Scenes, throughout the Main Game and Bonus Chapter, has a Morphing Object and Collectible Crystal. The collectibles are rather large but they both were difficult to find in some of the scenes. There is also a Morphing Object in all of the 15 Hidden Object Scenes, which are definitely not easy to spot! Any missed Hidden Object Scene Morphs can be picked up by replaying the HO's in the extra's menu, which also allows you to better your star or accuracy score. Graphics & Sound: The graphics have room for improvement because MHG changed their graphics a while back and they do tend to be large and cartoonish during close-ups or zoom zones. The graphics remind me a lot of the former Eipix developer where they opted to make the scenes bright and colorful but very plain, you are fooled into thinking they are beautiful scenes because of the beautiful color palette but if you pay attention you'll notice that there are no details, buildings don't have individual bricks, for instance, they are smooth surfaces which makes everything seem huge and cold, instead of giving it a warm and cozy feeling. Hidden Object Scenes: There are 14 Hidden Object Scenes, +3 HOP's in the CE Bonus Chapter as well as 4 smaller Zoom Zone HO's where you are tasked with finding 6-8 objects shown as silhouetted shapes. This is the one area that MHG's shined, the HO scenes had a good variety of styles and the objects are really well-blended into the scenery. None of the objects are obvious to spot, on HO's by every other developer, I'm able to spot the correct objects without even looking at the list, but that never happened with these HO's! There are a lot of different variations such as Silhouetted Shape Finds, Matching Pairs Finds, Interactive & Listed Item Finds, Symbol Finds (MHG loves their symbols!) Swatches Finds, and Spot The Differences, one of which requires spotting a symbol that was an oddball out of each grouping of symbols. Each of the Main HO Scenes has a Morphing Object that can be picked up within the CE Extra's menus as well, but there are no alternative games available in lieu of HOP's. Mini-Games: There are 17 Mini-Games +6 in the CE Bonus Chapter. I really enjoyed them because there were a lot of mechanical type puzzles which are my favorite type. I did deduct a star because you can't replay any of the mini-games! Here are a few of my personal favorites: 1-Connect dots on a phone to combine 2 symbols in a continuous line. x3 2-Click on sections to fill in or stop the flow of the correct colors to paint a mural. 3-Adjust the bandwidth of the yellow wave to match 3 different red waves using vertical & horizontal sliders as well as shape. 4-Place 3 chips onto 3 groups of numbers to equal the sum of 96. 5-Move the mechanical arm using controls to manipulate the switches and following the clues. Bonus Chapter: (CE version only) It's been a few years since the incident at Ember Lake and Halsey is excited about her first class at the University...that is, until she discovers that her biology professor brought back a vacation souvenir from Ember Lake! This is a pretty short Chapter spanning 6 scene locations with just 3 additional Hidden Object Scenes and 3 Mini-Games. There are 3 Hidden Object Scene Morphs, 6 Scene Morphing Objects, and 6 Collectible Crystals. After completing the CE Bonus Chapter, you can access the Ultimate Hidden Object puzzle where you'll open 3 cabinets to access 3 HO scenes. You'll also be able to access the Treasure Hunt game where you return to the 27 scenes to find a single Treasure Hunt object. Collector's Edition Extra's: 12 Wallpapers (not 4!) 7 Concept Art Pictures with a Before/After slider bar, 10 Music Soundtracks, 11 Achievements (6 available in 3 categories) 15 Replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 27 Collectible Crystals, 27 Scene Morphing Objects, 15 HOP Morphing Objects, an Ultimate HO, 27 Treasure Hunt Objects, 4 Main Chapters +Bonus Chapter and a Built-In Strategy Guide.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seems like a good game.....but there's a glitch I haven't finished this game yet. I like it. Nice graphics, interesting storyline, etc. Unfortunately, I had only gotten so far when I ran into a snag. I needed a certain item from my inventory, but was unable to get it. When I pressed the arrows in my inventory to choose an item, it kept scrolling past the item that I needed. I've never seen a game do that before. It won't let me choose that item and I can't move forward in the game without it. I'm going to have to start over. It's a shame because I was enjoying this game :-(

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So So I gave this three stars because the graphics were good (I don't play with sound) and the HOPs were ok but the minigames didn't provide much of a challenge. I've played better games from Mad Head. Personally, I would like to see a higher degree of logic to these games, if that's at all possible, without reducing the fun factor. (e.g. not hiding inventory items in unlikely places). Lately I've been replaying older games from 2013, 2014 and have found them to be far more challenging than more recent ones. Overall, this wasn't a bad game but I wasn't thrilled and will likely not play it again, tho I do like games with a sci-fi element. I won't recommend it but suggest you try the demo for yourself and then decide.
