Secrets of Great Queens: Regicide Collector's Edition is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from ~~THIS SEQUEL WAS WORTH PLAYING AS MUCH AS THE FIRST ONE.~~ When Vendel Games came out with the first episode this series, Secrets of Great Queens: Old Tower Collector’s Edition in 2017 I thought they did a great job creating an innovative detective adventure. You play the role of Jane Bennette; personal investigator to Queen Elizabeth whose mission is to provide discrediting proof against allegations that Queen Elizabeth is a witch, since her mother who proceeded her) was tried for being a witch and a group of Witch hunters have given her three days to give up her throne. Witch hunter’s want Elizabeth off the throne to full-fill their insidious agenda, and they’re willing to kill her to accomplish this by burning her at the stake. Jane isn’t alone though, she is aided in her quest by her assistant Captain Louis whom the Queen has also enlisted to help Jane. Together Jane and Captain Louis ultimately secure Queen Elizabeth’s with their skilled efforts. In this follow up sequel the gender roles are reversed. You play detective Alfonso Campanella, head of the Royal Secret Service with your assistant Adrianna. You are tasked once again with the burden of proving Queen Marie De Medici ’s innocence whose been accused of murdering King Henry the 4th. Allegedly Francois Ravaillac murdered King Henry but there is evidence that “a Secret Order” hired Ravaillac and another anonymous co-conspirator to commit this dastardly deed. Can you discover the real truth behind the assassination of King Henry? It’s an engaging detective adventure with enough twists and surprises for enthusiasts of this kind of game that players of every level can easily enjoy. Perhaps a little too easy for Advanced player’s but occasionally even seasoned players desire a game that doesn’t rack your brain with incredibly difficult puzzles and convoluted story themes. This sequel may not appeal to everyone and some may like the first game more so than this one, but for me I really enjoyed the casual gaming aspects of this game. The storyline was also successfully executed and held my interests until the games surprising conclusion. Vendel Games did a decent job and won me over with this next chapter and I wish them continued success with future releases of their series Secrets of Great Queens. Cheers!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great game, terrible music This IS a wonderful game, one of the best i played in a while, very entertaining and interesting storyline. The one thing that makes it real hard for me to go on playing is the extremely boring "music" - you cannot even name it "music" really, someone played the same three tones very slowly again and again on a piano or so - i wish that this developer keeps creating such great games, but please: pay attention to the music accompanying it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from IT'S GOOD TO BE THE KING! Well, most of the time, until you get offed, then IT'S GOOD TO BE THE QUEEN, well... The King of France is Dead! Like most Royal Monarchies, King Henry IV had a price on his head from those that wished to remove him from the Royal Throne through the act of Regicide. As head of The Royal Secret Service, the Queen has asked you to pledge your loyalty and prove her innocence, and that of Lenora's, Her Majesty's Lady-in-Waiting. For Francois Ravaillac, the odds are stacking up against him to uncover the truth, someone has gone through a great deal of trouble to frame Her Majesty, but why? ?? For the first time, I'm disappointed that a game doesn't have a Helper! I was really hoping Captain Louis would return from the first game in this series! He was so funny and so good looking that for me, he was the focal point and the star of the show. As for Regicide, the graphics are amazing and some of the best I've seen in a long time. The characters are flawless, the objects are credible for the time period, the music does exactly what it's supposed to do, immerse you into the game without being aware that it's doing so! We HOPA fans tend to ignore the details, but I tend to stop to smell the roses lately, and Vendel Games has obviously put a great deal of effort into this game. Why only 4 Stars you may ask? I just wasn't as blown away by the storyline as I was in the first game, and because I wish Captain Louis had made a comeback. (and possibly because I played as a male character this time and didn't feel as much of a personal connection?) Each scene in this Collector's Edition version has a Morphing Object that not only morphs at a nice pace but doesn't morph to an object that sticks out like a sore thumb. For every 5 Morphs you find, a Jigsaw Puzzle is unlocked, but they are simplistic, large sized pieces and not that many of them. I would rather only unlock one puzzle that had some options such as having a large number of pieces (24-500 or even more) rotatable pieces and the ability to save it as a wallpaper and to be able to assemble it more than once. When you find the Morph, the icon will turn to a blue gem to remind you that you found it already, a feature I do like. There are also Collectible Royal Objects that unlock Hidden Object Scenes, and there is a pull-down tab at the top of the screen that will have a checkmark once you find the item. The Hidden Object Scenes are plentiful in this long-awaited Secrets of Great Queens edition by Vendel Games. Not only are they in abundance, but they vary with different styles each time and are fairly well done I might add. I'll go one step further to say that Vendel Games has done a fantastic job choosing the locations of the HOP's as well such as finding silhouette shaped symbols hidden within a Knights Armor. Some of the HOP's are back to back or at least have a smaller Zoom Zone HOP before or after. There are Interactive List finds, Silhouetted Shape finds, Interactive-Progressive finds, Spot the Difference finds, Multiples of the same Object finds, and finding silhouetted shapes using a Magnifying Glass. Well done Vendel, and I'm not even a fan of HOP's lately because they never seem to even attempt to actually hide objects nowadays! The Mini-Games are rather odd at times, especially after the demo. They are not bad, but some of them have hard to understand instructions and because some of them are new variations those same puzzles are difficult to solve by just winging it. They aren't all like that so don't freak out, change is a good thing, otherwise it's just another cookie-cutter game, and I enjoyed the change and the challenge. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the game: 1-Swap tiles to create a path from the top left to the bottom right. 2-Remove snakes that aren't blocked by other snakes. 3-Swap tiles along tracks to complete the pattern. 4-Examine the letter and find each symbol shown on the decoder. 5-Recreate the decoded symbols by swapping partial sections. 6-Rotate disc sections to complete the decoded symbol's images. 7-Click when 1, 2 and 3 hands are within the targeted circle at the same time. 8-Complete the image by rotating the main circular image and smaller discs on the edges. 9-Find and select the Crest that's identical to the one in the letter. 10-Select and drag the quill through the correct route. 11-Select the correct symbols in the correct order according to the clue found in the HOP. This Collector's Edition version has 13 Wallpapers, 13 Concept Art Pictures, 9 Music Soundtracks, 16 Achievements to earn, 30 Morphing Objects that unlock a new Jigsaw Puzzle for every 5 Morphs found, 19 Collectible Royal Objects, 5 Main Chapters +Bonus Chapter, enjoy the Royal Adventure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from happy thanks giving to all good game liked the characters enjoyed playing it

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Story was Good but . . . The game was short both main and bonus chapter. I felt robbed. Liked the HO scenes. Frustrated to no end with the challenges of clicking as fast as I can -- why bother just Skip. I know that most people are not neurologically challenged like myself and I don't mind that a game includes a canned challenge but this game too many resulting in a Skip being used. I thought well maybe the use of Skips was the source of the short time length of the game but not true because I tried those challenges until demoralized then took a Skip. For the seasoned player (and not neurologically challenged) those challenges would be a no brainer and their game experience would be "its short in length game". Grumble, grumble!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from WOW....SHORT GAME.....AND SHORTEST BC EVER There is absolutely NOTHING that warrants this to be CE worthy. No replay of HOS and Puzzles. The only collectibles you have are 30 morphs so you can construct 6 jigsaw puzzles....and 12 Royal items....with the rest of the usual CE fluff. Generous. The best aspect of this game is the outstanding graphics that render an incredible atmosphere. The rest of it falls short. Gameplay is not hyperactive which is a plus, but it is rather boring and slow. Because the graphics were so attractive and atmospheric, the pace of the gameplay didn't bother me. There are a fair amount of HOS, but the graphics in them are very inferior to the rest of the game. I was not impressed with them at all. They were bland and dark with faded colors. The quality and artistic effort just isn't there. There are too many annoying mini games, especially in the BC, which is the most appalling, shortest length I have ever witnessed....under 30 minutes. Terrible. I would say the SE is definitely the best choice....with a pcc or a sale. It was a shame and more than a disappointment that such excellent graphics went to waste on a CE (?) that was not fulfilling in any way except for the atmosphere.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was far too short It ended before it had really got underway. I was disappointed and to top it off the Bonus game was nothing other than an afterthought. It could have been a lot better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Devs, your customers are adults; we don't need our hands held. The production is lovely, but the story and gameplay move rather slowly, including numerous conversations, most of which I couldn't skip because the mouse was disabled while characters are speaking. My hand was constantly and firmly held; I wasn't allowed to explore a scene because the mouse was disabled except for the one thing the devs wanted me to examine. The gameplay was so unilinear that it was more of a "click through the story" than an actual game. Because of this, I lost interest within 15 minutes. I did enjoy the few HO scenes I encountered, because they were creatively designed. But the mini-games were much too easy. Since I was bound to follow the dev's playbook, and since the gameplay lacked challenge, this isn't a game for me. I prefer being able to explore each scene in whatever order I choose, and dislike gameplay that doesn't challenge me. YMMV, so try the demo.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Short but not Sweet First let me give kudos to a game story that's based in historical fiction rather than fantasy, ghosts, or serial killers. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy games in those genres but lately it seems those are the only story settings for HOAs. In this case, Regicide is based in historical reality therefore making the steps you take more logical (like KEEPING the dagger you acquire and reusing it, rather than throwing it away after one use and then needing a cutting tool five minutes later - can we stop doing this, developers?!). Visuals and Sound were ok - not overly polished but that aesthetic choice seemed to fit with the game's gray, solemn tone. Plot: Predictable and lacking imagination. It's your run of the mill "someone wants to take over the kingdom and must be stopped" storyline with no characterization or twists. Yet, the voice acting was surprisingly better quality than these games typically have. Finally, my biggest issue of the game: it's short. AND the bonus chapter is even shorter and more boring. It's NOT WORTH THE CE price tag... even on sale. The bonus chapter MIGHT be an extra hour of gameplay if the puzzles take you a while.... and that's probably a stretch. It's criminal they have the nerve to charge an extra $10 for such a short chapter and a few collectibles. Ugh. Love the concept, hate the execution.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Really Disappointed! I was eagerly waiting for the next one in this Great Queens series to come out. This game seemed hastily thrown together, with far too many HOS and contrived plots. The bonus play was even worse, and the puzzles throughout were easily solved by a ten year old. All I can say, is...Meh.
