Elephant Games brings you Chimeras: Cherished Serpent – an exciting new entry in the Chimeras series!

Eleven mysterious deaths have plagued Serpent Hill in one month, so it’s no wonder the citizens live in constant fear. In every case, the only witnesses are the victims themselves, so the new sheriff, Amber, has no leads. What’s more, people can’t shake the sense that someone is always watching them. Now it’s up to you to dig into the case and see what turns up. What a way to start a vacation! Can you help Amber finish what her dearly-departed brother started and find out what’s really going on in Serpent Hill? You’ll need your puzzle-solving skills and a sharp mind to find the truth in this hair-raising Hidden-Object Puzzle Adventure!

Chimeras: Cherished Serpent Collector's Edition is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Evil Doll The Chimeras series is my favor series. I find the storylines very interesting, What I thought the game was all about, I find it to be something different in the end. This game kept me interested to the very end. I enjoyed the whole game. Can not understand why others gave it a low rating. I enjoyed the whole game, the story and really enjoy collecting the collectable card and puzzles. I do not want to say much. since others have given what this game was about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vacation Mystery and Suspense I Loved this game. It was entertaining and I didn't get bored at all. It had a few times that something appeared suddenly and I found that delightful. I liked all the hops. I can't get enough of the morphs. The secret room has 61 morphs, the gameplay has 26 morphs. I enjoyed the little jigsaws. Enjoyed some of the mini-games as well. The achievements are nicely done. I achieved all the awards except not skipping all the mini-games. The achievements have nice things that materialize. It's not a stupid scroll.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great Chimera Game! Not sure why the negative reviews--as a long time Chimera player (Chimera games are my favorite) this game is fun with the hidden puzzle pieces and morphing objects unique to this series. I literally clapped when I saw this new game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice one I don't really know the older games of this series because I didn't care much at the time, but I enjoy this one very much! I like the purple shades. The woman character who is envolved in the plot. Elephant games surely have style, from time to time (I enjoyed other series very much as Grim tales and Haunted Hotel are my favorite!)...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am stuck in my house and just want a little diversion. For all of you nay sayers I get what you are saying but for what seems like forever I have been "self isolating" at home and looking for just a little escape. Is it the best game ever? No. Is it the most challenging game ever? No. But for a couple of hours I go on a little fantasy journey and forget all the the reality of life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another nice entry in the series I found this game a very pleasant way to pass several hours. I have always enjoyed this series and this game is no exception. One thing I would mention is that important parts of the story are relayed through the notes you find in the game and if you don't read these notes, you might find yourself a bit confused as to the overall storyline. I never skip over notes in games, but please know that in this game they are not just filler. I enjoyed the game and I do recommend it. Happy gaming. :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A TALE OF TWO "HISSING" COUSINS - BASILISK AND COCKATRICE REVIEW BASED UPON THE ENTIRE GAME 3 Chapters Plus a Bonus Chapter – Strategy Guide: 35 pages (My time: 5 Hours) When your sister receives an invitation to visit Serpent Hill, she sends you in her place. As an expert in cryptozoology you jump at the chance visit areas which have chimeric creatures. Upon arrival, you learn from the sheriff, Amber, that people are dying from some unknown cause. Is it a curse as townspeople believe? Help the sheriff locate the cause of these unfortunate deaths while learning about the connection between a basilisk and these untimely deaths. This is a short game. It has all the quality elements of an Elephant game, but it is only four (4) chapters long (with the bonus chapter). Personally, I would rather have a short quality game than one which has boring activities and a slow pace. I found the story excellent in the main game; however, I was not as impressed with the one in the bonus chapter. The pace in the main game is excellent with plenty of activities including creatively designed mini-games and HOP scenes. The collectibles are morphing objects and postcards. There is a morphing object in every scene. Also collect picture fragments to play four (4) jigsaw puzzles at the end of the game. I found most easy to locate. At the end of the game I was missing one picture fragment, which is very frustrating because I cannot complete one jigsaw puzzle without replaying the entire game. I wish Elephant would allow the player to return to the scenes to find any missing jigsaw pieces to complete the puzzles. There is also a secret room at the end of the game in which to search for more items hidden within the scenes of the game. You are timed in this activity MECHANICS: • Four (4) levels of play including a customized version. • 22 achievements. • Collect 48 picture fragments to play 4 jigsaw puzzles at the end of the game • Collect 26 morphing objects and 12 cards • 12 wallpapers along with concept art, music, and video sequences • Replay 17 HOP scenes and 13 mini-games • Secret room. Return to the game scenes to locate a specific number of items within a specific time. There are nineteen (19) HOP scenes with eight (8) mini-HOP games with searches for either six (6) items or matching six pairs. Most of the scenes are either lists of items or silhouette. However, they are creatively designed and interactive. Many of the scenes involved maneuvering objects within the scene to locate the items. There are some matching scenes plus my favorite – pattern scenes which require the player to locate items based on either their pattern or a small segment of the item. There are only seventeen (17) min-games and all can be replayed. They are well-designed and some have several parts to them, each once increasing in difficulty. For me, this is a wonderful way to provide games so that most of the puzzles can be played in an easier mode and still provide challenge to those looking for it. Also, if a puzzle is too difficult, they player can skip the harder levels and replay them, spending more time in solving them. Kudos Elephant! I do wish more developers would offer this option. One of the puzzles has six (6) levels and the final three (3) puzzles I found difficult. BONUS CHAPTER: Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner! Well that is what you might say after you finish this chapter concerning a big clucking bird, a cockatrice. Sheriff Amber has asked for your help when people are turning to stone as the result of this foul fowl. Battle this bird to return the town to normal. I did not care for this chapter. I found the story ridiculous and found the pace slow. It is HOP heavy and puzzle lite. There are seven (7) HOP scenes with three (3) mini-Hop scenes, each with six items to locate. There are five (5) mini-games. The puzzles in the chapter are ridiculously easy and to me, it seems as if this chapter was produced hastily without thought to the quality of the content. SPOILERS: HERE ARE SOME OF THE MIN-GAMES AFTER THE DEMO: A. Connection puzzle. Connect the dots and plot a path through a forest according to given clues B. Connection puzzle Connect all lights throughout a grid by turning the beams of light to the correct direction. 3X C. Picture puzzle. Rotate and place hexagonal pieces into a honeycomb grid to recreate an image of a basilisk D. Maze puzzle. Move two tokens at the same time from the bottom to the top simultaneously. When there are blockers in the path, the tokens must pass over them at the same time. BONUS CHAPTER: E. Assembly puzzle. Rotate pieces to restore a bird F. Switch Picture puzzle. Rotate and switch circular pieces to restore a picture G. Connection puzzle. On a shield connect symbols so that all squares are visited once

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Yawn... Hello friends! As usual, I mostly review on the game and not much on the story, as others do a much better job than I. Graphics are well done, very clear and without blurring when moving in or out of cut scenes. Game play was very nice, with no problems during the demo. Colors are very bright for the most part, without being over powering. However, we do have a lot of purple background, with some brassy colors as well. Animation is well done, with smooth movements, even though the body sways in close ups. Voice overs are well done, and are age, character and setting appropriate, but very few and very far between. Music is monotonous. The SFX are minimal. This game was way too quiet. HOGs are varied, with interactive lists, silhouettes, pairs and place items. Didn't see something different to switch to if we don't care for the HOGs. They are fairly clear, and items are not difficult to find. Puzzles were painfully simple. Hint system is quite helpful and it does transport to longer locations. Not a lot of back tracking, but some. The map is very bland and boring, but it does jump you to locations, and it shows areas you may have missed a collectible. Collectibles not bad, and about the only place that had any challenge. We need to find 48 jigsaw pieces, which are fairly large, but quite difficult to find. They blended well into the background. We use these to complete 4 jigsaw puzzles. We also have 26 morphing figurines. These morph fairly quickly, but I found them much easier to spot. They are fairly large. We also have 12 photos to find. They are easy to overlook when you are looking for other things in a scene. This game was just too quiet, had no real challenge and no action or suspense. This was not the usual Elephant game and was extremely disappointing. It is very slow moving, but I kept on playing, just to see if it would pick up as the game progresses. It did not. Definitely could have used a lot more character interaction. This series had started on with a bang, but has been on a down hill slide ever since. I felt this one was geared more toward the beginner, or someone who just wants a no brainer kind of game. I have a number of those, but this one just didn't have anything that made me want to buy it. I will recommend it for beginners, but not for the seasoned gamer. No buy for me. Gave this one a 3.0 on my scale. As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may find this one to be exactly what you are looking for. Play on!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Much of the Same Although I did enjoy the graphics in this game the challenge was so easy and predictable! Some of the puzzles were really weird too far too long and laborious. I have all the Chimera games, and in the past enjoyed them. but I'm not sure at all if I will buy this one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from WOULDN'T IT BE NICE IF EVERYONE HAD ACCESS TO THE GAMES ON THE SAME DAY :) Completed Game approximately 4.5 hours (including completion of all mini-games & CE Bonus Chapter) 18 Main Game Scene Locations +8 Bonus Chapter Difficulty Range: Beginner What a long, drawn-out, boring story that makes no sense! Halfway through the story, I was still at a loss as to what the story was actually about. I arrive in a small town for reasons unbeknownst to me, I'm not in the least bit phased that a young man in his physical prime, just met his demise two feet in front of me upon my arrival because he was literally scared to death. Apparently, I don't actually know why I'm in town either because I've just assumed the position of Deputy Sheriff by the Sheriff's sister Amber whose now the acting Sheriff because her brother, the Sheriff, also died from getting the bejeebers scared out of him as well. (and I might add that she doesn't seem to be phased by the fact that her brother just died either, much less at the expense of such weird, extenuating circumstances) Are you just as confused as I am now too? Fast-forward a few scenes later and you'll start having a few hallucinations about giant Basilisks, no wait, that's just a doll, wait, what? who lets their kid play with a Basilisk doll? ??Morphing Objects/Collectibles: (CE version only)? There are 26 Morphing Chimeras one per scene, that is actually nicely blended into the scenery, not impossible to spot, but it doesn't slap you in the face either!. Each scene also has either a Scenery OR Zoom-Zone Jigsaw Puzzle Piece (sometimes both) that allows you to assemble Four 12-piece Jigsaw Puzzles. Some of the scenes also have Collectible Basalists Cards with descriptions. My two biggest complaints with Elephant Games is that they never have a Collectibles Indicator Option that tells you if the Collectibles/Morphs have been found in that scene, and they never give you an option to return to the scene to search for any missed Morph or Collectible! ?Hidden Object Scenes? There are only 11 Hidden Object Scenes +7 in the CE Bonus Chapter, + 6 Zoom-Zone HO's. These were some of the least creative, unimaginative, most boring un-Hidden Object Scenes I've ever seen in a HOPA to date! They are located in boring locations (I'm fairly certain most of them were located inside of a chest of some sort) the objects tiny, and at times are difficult to tell what they actually are. Most of the scenes are dark and void of color. Most of the scenes were Interactive List's, but there were a couple of Matching Pair Finds, a Silhouetted Shape Find, a Swatch Find, a Fragment Find, and a couple of Multiples of the Same Object Finds. There wasn't much of a variety, there wasn't any color whatsoever...in fact, one of the scenes required finding objects by sifting through the charred remains after a fire...I kid you not! ?Mini-Games? There are 13 Mini-Games +6 in the CE Bonus Chapter. Many of the games were original or newer games, and way more creative than the HOP's were! Here are some of my personal favorites: 1-Use directional arrows to guide 2 stars to their matching slots (use the stars as bumpers to stop them from moving) 2-Rotate fragment sections into place. 4-Place 3 light spheres so their rays cover the entire grid (x6) 5-Rotate parts to guide the electricity to all the batteries simultaneously. 6-Select directional arrows to move tokens simultaneously thru the maze to electrical barriers & bypass all locks at the same time. ?Bonus Chapter (Collector's Edition version only)? SAY CHEESE, There's a new Sherrif and deputy in town folks! Sherrif Amber has deputized you once again when fowl-play is running a-muck at the county Fun Fair at Serpent Creek in this equally boring chapter that takes place over 8 scenes. Everyone is in a frozen comatose state but honestly, the atmosphere is just as stale as the main game and they both move at a snails' pace leaving a trail of sticky oozy slime behind for the next Elephant games' task (to remove an object from the goo of course) There are 6 mini-games and 8 hidden object scenes and you will complete the final 3 Collectible Basalists Cards, 8 Morphing Chimeras, and 12 Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces which allows you to complete the final 12-piece Jigsaw Puzzle. After completing the Bonus Chapter, you can access the Secret Room where you return to the scene locations to find Objects in a Timed Mode. ?Collector's Edition Extra's? 12 Wallpapers, 12 Concept Art Pictures, 5 Music Soundtracks, 23 Achievements, 13 Replayable Mini-Games,17 Hidden Object Scenes 12 Collectible Basalists Cards (with descriptions) 26 Morphing Chimeras, 48 Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces (Four 12 piece Jigsaw Puzzles) Secret Room (Timed HO Objects) 3 Main Chapters +Bonus Chapter and a Built-In Strategy Guide.
