The Dark Hills of Cherai: The Regal Scepter is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was challenging You have 3 characters, and each one has to find objects, and you have to share these objects with each character, you do this at the Meeting place, and then you use the map to get to the areas you need to be at. I played it twice, because I made a mistake, I wasn't going to, but boy am I glad I did. I needed a pen and paper as well, to remember what had to be shared with who, and where it had to go, but don't let that put you off, it's well worth the effort of carrying on

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Game! This game is great. It's really not that confusing to play as three characters, but its important to keep track of items each needs on paper as you go. There is a wonderful interactive map that is very helpful in remembering what needs to be done where and also in getting you there quickly. It is a nice long game and has interesting puzzles. Lots to do. Not much into storylines and usually keep the sound off during play, so cannot comment on those aspects. If you like adventure style HOs, give this one a try. Many hours (and days) of enjoyable fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting Game The game is so different to most. You play as three different children throughout the game. Each child explores a different area, but there is one common area where they can exchange objects they've found. It is quite inventive. The built in SG is helpful when you get stuck. The graphics are nice, the HOS are well done, the hint button refills quickly (but you with the built in SG, you don't need the hint very often), the interactive map is very helpful and the voice overs are well done. My only complaint about this game is that sometimes when the children meet in the common area they don't all appear on the screen. You have to click the missing child and re-enter the common area. This was a minor annoyance and didn't happen all the time. I recommend this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from an all-around good game!!! i can't comment on the sound...didn't use it. skips and hints charge fast and i had to skip most of the games.....it's a me thing and logic. it is a long game so when you start prepare to be there quite a while. you play as 3 different people and collect items and player #1 may or may not use it but maybe player #2 or #3 may need it. you have to switch items around a lot and you are back and forth between the people a good bit. i really liked it and think if you read this you will be prepared for a long haul. graphics were good and not very cluttered in the HO scenes. there wasn't a whole lot of them. just enough to be interesting. you get items you will need when you finish them and use those items to get more. there is a map and it is interactive but there is a separate one for each player. you can't see the others until you choose that person and then you can. the ending is interesting!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liked this game a lot This game was a real memory challenge because I didn't write anything down. You have three characters to use and you have to swap the inventory around. A shortcut to get the characters together to swap items or characters kept the frustration level down. I think you can jump to places from the map, but I only did that once because traveling was quick. Each place had a name which made it easier to remember. I enjoyed the scenery. Many places to visit and not much HO which is always a plus for me. Some easy puzzles and some more difficult with lots of variety. This game was not too short or too long and I thoroughly enjoyed it. A real pleasure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from COMPLEX SWAPPING AND FUN GAMEPLAY: Unique adventure-HOG game is much more complex than usual. You take turns playing the 3 characters (Tara, Maya and Rahul) as they follow their own path in looking for the Royal Scepter. Each character has their own path of lovely Indian locations to follow (12-16 each) and, as they encounter puzzles which they can’t complete because they lack the necessary objects and as they find certain objects that they can’t themselves use, they must exchange objects to pursue their quests. The switching is done at the Meeting Place. Call areas that require attention sparkle in casual mode. Storyline is cohesive when taking all 3 characters into consideration but some may find it convoluted because you are changing characters so frequently. HOS: Not too crowded; clearly defined objects. PUZZLES: Wide variety of very interesting puzzles; most are unique; difficulty ranges from easy to very challenging. Skippable. OTHER STUFF: What is a lot of fun is the complexity of swapping. You need (1) a terrific memory (2) pen and paper or (3) W/T to keep track of which character needs what to complete their tasks because it isn’t always obvious who needs what. Otherwise, you’ll be playing for days swapping objects, characters and revisiting locations at random. Location graphics are absolutely gorgeous from the palace to the waterfall. Great animation and visual effects. Over 5 ½ hours in casual. Satisfactory Ending BASICS: Casual or advanced modes. Can chose “aspect ratio.” 2 Hint options: mirror (use as often as you want) or the Peacock (when it is full). If you don’t know what to do with an object, place it over the peacock, which will tell you where to use it and which person needs it. GLITCH: One glitch that doesn’t appear to be fixed or reported in the forum, is that 3 or 4 times, I couldn’t back out of the closeup of a scenes (ex: placed a couple urns at the oxmill, but couldn’t get back out of it). Only solution was to close the program and reopen it. Problem solved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deceptively Difficult Great backgrounds and game design with lots and lots of puzzles. The puzzles start out relatively easy but get progressively more difficult. I even gave up and skipped one. I had to skip two others even though (according to the blog walkthru) I did indeed solve them. For some reason the game didn't acknowledge it, so "skip" was necessary. Regardless, I thought the game was great. Having to go to the Meeting Place constantly to exchange tools was a little annoying until I started using the map. The navigation is quite sophisticated, so don't hesitate to click on things. You will enjoy this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is a keeper! i really like this game! it is one i will probably play many times more. did i have to use the walk through? yes. when i knew i had missed something important. for the most part, i felt it was rather straight forward. with a built-in map, it was easy to see where i had areas to complete. some of the mini games caused me problems and slowed me down...a lot! one of them i just skipped while i still had hair. the visuals are really good but don't let that fool you, some objects are easy but some are really challenging! i liked the story line and trying to keep up with 3 characters working independently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Great Game! Loved it! It's even better than it's predecessor.... Again, you play three characters and have to juggle items between them, but the map makes that very easy. Keeps it interesting! Tip: leave characters in the trading chamber when you switch between them - makes it easier to keep track. You can use the map to return that character to its former position if need be. The game is challenging without being frustrating. It's nice and long and gives hours of fun. This is one I'll be playing again for sure. I'm a fan of puzzles that make you think but don't take forever to solve or drive you crazy, so this game is right up my alley. I happen to like being able to get hints for what's next right within the game and this one does that well. If you're not a fan of hints, you can play the more difficult mode -- or just not use the tools provided. Can't wait for more in this series!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Different and challenging The gimmick from the first game is still good. You play three different characters exploring different areas and solving different puzzles, but able to share inventory. Figuring out who has what, and who needs what, is a novel challenge. The game has a lot of beautiful scenes, and nice music. But what I appreciate even more is that the puzzles mostly make sense, given the game's magical premises. There are some trickier puzzles here, but in hindsight I had to concede that they were all fair. The game is in fact fairly challenging, but there's a fairly elaborate set of in-game hint features, plus a map that not only allows instant travel, but also indicates cleared and un-cleared areas. The story was really just an excuse for hunting around for stuff, of course, but the regular chats with the ghostly King of Cherai made it seem more like a real story nonetheless. And while the ending could certainly be seen as disappointingly abrupt, I didn't really mind it. After solving so many puzzles, I was just as happy to just quickly wrap it all up. And there was one thing about the ending that I really liked. There are some instances of the usual ridiculous HOG-logic, where you can't cut something with shears but only with scissors and that sort of thing; but these aren't really painful. And while the English is generally very good, in a few places it appears to be a non-American dialect that may confuse some players ('torch' for 'flashlight', for instance).
