Customer Reviews
Rite of Passage: Embrace of Ember Lake Collector's Edition is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from At the Lake. I like this game. Not the best game as it was a little slow. The reason I went back and forth on giving it a 4 star or 5. As can be seen I gave it a 5 since I did enjoy playing the main game. the bonus game was slow and short but the other bonus parts were good for once as to many new games don't have any. The game was similar to other Hidden Object you search for items while you go through the game which always surprises me when others complain about searching for items It is a Hidden Object plain and simple so don't get the game if you don't like doing this. I did skipped puzzles since I could not figure out the answers.Some I could not see what was going on but others might not have that problem. To me it was not spooky at all or suspenseful but a good steady game. The actor's didn't seem computerized. But the daughters voice is familiar and good job of acting in my thoughts. I don't give to many low star scores because I try the game first and if I don't like it I don't bother playing it. I also don't like grading a game that I don't finish since it is not fair . There might be a game I stop playing after a short play trial and it turned out to be good game I just didn't give it a chance so that is the reason to not rate a game I don't finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Me I couldn't wait to buy this, this morning. I was having so much fun I played till I was done. For one, I loved looking for the collectible and morph in every scene. Not too easy and not to hard. They have the hops I Love with morphs! When I collected everything they gave me a Treasure hunt with 27 items. Then they gave me the Ultimate HO found in three drawers which I can replay. I liked most of the puzzles. I can replay 15 hops, the achievements are do-able. 27 collectible crystals, 27 morphs during game play, another 15 morphs in the hops, 27 Treasure hunt and the Ultimate Ho. 12 wallpapers, 7 concept art and 10 music. 4 chapters+bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rite of Passage: Embrace of Ember Lake Collector's Edition I enjoy playing games through this developer because they do large sized games with a lot of detail to see rather than small sized games. I enjoy playing games in this series

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HAPPY SWEET SIXTEEN HALSEY! FIND THE “KEY” TO THE POWER OF YOUR INNER SELF REVIEW BASED UPON THE ENTIRE GAME 4 Chapters Plus a Bonus Chapter – Strategy Guide: 37 pages (My Time: 5 Hours) STORY: Sixteen years ago, your brother found a baby girl along the shores of Ember Lake. He brought her to you to raise. Naming her Halsey, you reared her as your own child and shielded her from the events of that night. Now, her sweet sixteen birthday will be anything but sweet when strange powers awaken within her. Strange events are occurring at this lake and they are connected to Halsey. When she is kidnapped by government agents, you are off to visit your brother to uncover the secrets he has kept hidden from you all these years concerning her. Now you must save her and discover the mystery behind her connection to this lake. OPINION: Welcome back Mad Head Games! Congratulations to this developer on another fantastic sci-fi thriller – one which displays all the quality elements we love about their games! I have been waiting to play this game and was not disappointed. It is a short game, (probably a little too short), but, it has the same quality elements as most of their other games. The gaming script is well-written. The game is a sci-fi delight with the themes, “it came from outer space” combined with that of “the creature from the black lagoon.” The pace is excellent with a variety of activities to keep a player engaged in the game. The graphics are cartoonish and well-reflect the sci-fi theme of the game. The collectibles are crystals and morphing objects. I found most easy to locate within the scenes. There are indicators on the inventory bar indicating if there are collectibles within the scene. There are morphing objects in the HOP scenes as well. However, I found locating the morphing objects in the HOP scenes a trifle more difficult. At the end of the game, return to the scenes and search for one treasure in each scene of the game. I found these ridiculously easy to locate – they practically jump out of the scene. I do believe these should have been little better hidden so that finding them is more challenging. Upon the completion of the game, there is super-duper ultimate HOP scene available to play. You search for items behind the doors of three cabinets. MECHANICS: • Five (5) levels of play including a customized version. • 11 achievements, most with 3 parts. • Collect 28 collectibles (crystals) and 42 morphing objects. • Collect 27 treasures at the end of the game by each scene. • 4 wallpapers along with concept art, music, and video sequences • Replay 15 HOP scenes. • Ultimate HOP scene. Silhouette. Search for items in 3 scenes by opening 3 cabinet doors. BONUS GAME. Feed me Seymour! It is a sequel. It is the Little Lab of Horrors as you play Halsey, all grown up and a college student. She is horrified when her friend Marc introduces her to a biology professor who brought back a crystal from Ember Lake while on vacation. Now he is feeding it with catastrophic results. When the crystal disappears, a shocked and horrified Halsey, is off to retrieve it before it causes more destruction. This is a short chapter. I played the entire chapter in less than a half hour. The game itself if excellent, but I do feel the chapter is a little too short for a collector’s edition. There are only three HOP scenes and three mini-games. The story is excellent, reminiscent of “The Little Shop of Horrors;” however, it could be a little longer. HOP SCENES: There are fifteen (15) HOP scenes in the game, all of which can be replayed at the end of the game. They vary in style with standard lists of items, silhouettes, matching, and pattern scenes in which items must be found based on a small piece of that time. Each scene has a morphing item within it. MINI-GAMES: There are eighteen (18) mini-games, none of which can be replayed. They are varied in style and difficulty. I found some extremely easy and others a little more challenging. I feel it is a nice mix of genres and difficulty levels. However, I do wish this developer would provide some of the puzzles to be replayed. I do not want to replay the entire game to replay a puzzle. Personally, I would rather replay a puzzle than a HOP scene. SPOILERS: HERE ARE SOME OF THE MINI-GAMES AFTER THE DEMO: A. Sequence puzzle. Push buttons to turn on all fans on a grid. The buttons must be clicked in the proper sequence. 3X – each scene increases in difficulty. B. Switch puzzle. Switch tokens on each of 3 rings so that tokens match up with the design on each ring. C. Picture puzzle. Place pieces of a picture into position to reveal a picture. D. Mathematical puzzle. Place tokens on a roulette board so that the numbers on which 3 tokens are placed equal to 95. E. Sequence puzzle. Repeat a sequence of directional arrows on a grid. BONUS CHAPTER: F. Lock puzzle. Enter a give code of symbols into a circular grid using a dial to point to them, moving the dial 3, 5, or 7 spaces clockwise. G. Sequence puzzle. Open 5 doors on a computer screen by pressing on them in the proper sequence. Pressing on one set of doors affects the others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting Game Premise, Average Execution I was super into the demo, and bought the full game as soon as I had reached the end of the trial. Final Thoughts: -The story held my attention, even with some pretty gaping plot holes. -The HO scenes are actually a little more challenging than you might think, but it a positive way. -Mini games are unique enough, I suppose. Nothing groundbreaking. -It was short. Even while I was multi-tasking, I finished in under 2.5 hours. -I was left feeling like I missed something. The demo had me so excited, then the second half of the game was just kind meh. Overall a solid, if not spectacular effort from Mad Head.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong story, solid achievement How refreshing to play a game with a strong and original storyline. No villains, no monsters and all tasks are relevant. There has been time in developing this game rather than rushing it through production with cookie cutter activities. And I love morphs and collectibles, especially when they are hard to find!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too Short I paid too much money for this short game. I liked this game but it was too short for the money. Geez.. this sucks,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fun game to while away some time I downloaded the demo on Game Club release day, and I did so even though the game had an average 3-star rating. I decided to give this game a chance because pennmom36 gave it four stars, and she and I share similar tastes in hidden-object adventure games. I'm glad I did, because the demo was fun enough that I went ahead and bought the full game. I found it easy to play--the puzzles were just challenging enough to be fun without being brain-breakers, which is what I like in a casual game--and I like the storyline as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from give it a chance So a few of you really detested this game but I found it really fun. I ended up buying it because I liked the story line. I really liked the act that I could go back at the end to find morphs and such. Just at least give it a chance and see what you think.
