Customer Reviews
Death Under Tuscan Skies: A Dana Knightstone Novel is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb In Just About Every Way!!! I really loved this game! The storyline is quite original, creative, and interesting. The graphics are wonderful, and the music just right. There is no map. There is also not much voice-acting. In fact, the only voice you will hear is that of the narrator, and that too only between the chapters. So you do have to do a bit of reading - both for the dialog and the journal. But, for those gamers who don't like to do too much reading in a game, the good news is that both the dialog and the journal entries are quite short and to-the-point. The game also has an excellent Hint system. You can use it in the Hidden Object Puzzles (HOPs) as well as for the game itself. In fact, unlike many games where you are told only that there is nothing to do in this area, the Hints in this game will tell you exactly what you need to do and where, even if you are not at that particular location. What's more, you can use the Hints even in most puzzles! Thus, you don't have to skip the whole puzzle, and can still solve it, using the Hints as needed. Speaking of puzzles now, there are not many HOPs in this game. The ones you do get are all pretty easy and fun. But most of the puzzles are not HOPs; and there are MANY of these. Perhaps too many... In fact, you will often have to solve two (and in one case at least, even three!) puzzles, back to back, before you get the object(s) you need to proceed further in the game. But most of these puzzles are really quite creative and interesting, and I hope you would enjoy them as much as I did. The only possible exception is what I call the Monster puzzle in Chapter 5. It is actually a kind of puzzle found in many other games, and it definitely has nothing to do with monsters! I call it a Monster puzzle only because it takes 40 moves to solve, is rather convoluted, and is therefore likely to be too challenging for most gamers. What's more, you cannot use the Hint in this puzzle at all. So it might be best for most gamers to just Skip this puzzle altogether, unless they are going for the achievements for not skipping puzzles. And, yes, that's right. Even though this is a Standard Edition game, it does have a whole slew of achievements. In fact, if there is any downside of the game for me, it is these achievements. That is one of the reasons I don't like most Collector's Editions these days - because of their silly achievements. And this is not even a Collector's Edition! And, yes, most of this game's achievements are easy enough to get, either because they involve not skipping a certain number of puzzles or because you get them automatically as you proceed in the game. But then, there is a whole bunch of achievements that actually require you to *rush* through the game! Specifically, the game consists of six chapters, and there is an achievement related to each, requiring you to finish that chapter in less than an hour. So that's six achievements right there. Then, there is a seventh achievement that requires you to finish the entire game in less than six hours. And if you miss any of the achievements - the above that I call "speed" achievements OR the other, more regular achievements - then you would miss that final achievement that requires you to get ALL the achievements in the game. And probably the worst part is that, unlike many other games, you cannot replay this game to get the achievements you missed the first time, keeping the ones you already got, because replaying the game requires you to create a whole new profile. In other words, you would have to get ALL the achievements, all over again... To be quite honest, I really think it was quite - well, stupid - of the developers to add especially these "speed" achievements. As I mentioned, this *is* actually a very interesting game, with lots of wonderful puzzles. The last thing you would want to do is *rush* through it. So it might be best to ignore the achievements and just enjoy the game. But, if you are like me, and you simply cannot ignore those achievements, then here is what I would advise you to do. Play the game the first time without any regard to especially those "speed" achievements. In other words, just enjoy the game! But do take good notes. There is also an excellent Big Fish walkthrough that might be helpful especially in solving that Monster puzzle. [Note: I actually made a different kind of diagram, but the Big Fish model seems pretty good too.] After finishing the first time, create a new profile (as instructed) to play again. As you might have noticed from past experience, a game tends to go pretty fast the second time around anyway; and the notes you took the first time should help you go even faster and get those "speed" achievements. Well, that's all I can think of right now. Hope my review and tips were helpful, and that you will all enjoy this game as much as I did! Happy Gaming! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love waits This is my 2nd DK adventure, and it is excellent. The game is long on puzzles, with few junk pile HOPs. The graphics are excellent and take place in Tuscany Italy, so really pretty. Storyline is easy to follow and actually coherent. It is a long game, with 6 chapters, and achievements (although the SE version does not have any prizes for the achievements), but still a nice added touch. On to my next DK adventure. Well done, Boomzap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mystery at the heart of an Italian vacation! Completed SE: Another great game in the Dana Knightstone series. While on vacation Dana discovers that her vacation is going to be filled with mystery when a ghost of a young woman appears to her. As Dana follows the clues she visits beautiful sites in the Tuscany region, solves a variety of puzzles, and unravels the mystery of who the ghostly woman is. In the end Dana helps Eva and Giovanni and finds their story the next chapter in her writing campaign. I highly recommend all the games is in the series. And check out other great games made by Boomzap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Visiting ghosts again So this game is second in the series (the first being Death at Fairing Point), however you do not have to play it before this one. You have traveled to Italy to give a lecture on literature and you are visited by a ghost named Eva who died years earlier. It is up to you to solve the mystery and help her reunite with her lost lover. Just like the first one, the visuals and audio are great and the HO scenes aren't overly difficult. Although you typically only get achievements in CE, it was nice having the little achievements that you're able to get in the SE. Only wish there was a map to help guide you, at times it was difficult to determine what to do next as something in a location could be added after you have visited there and one would have no idea it's there. Overall great game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Knightstone So this is the game that got me addicted to the series. The graphics ere so nice and the story line was really good. I thought the mini games were clever and the HOs were good. I think I liked this one so much, because the Dana plot was new to me. In her other games it seems to be a repeat of the same old stuff, which I do not like. But this one had different settings, which I loved and offered the player a chance to do stealth things which I liked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT GAME TO PLAY Terrific adventure game that is a pleasure to play because of its flawless gameplay. Has lots of innovate and clever puzzles with varying degrees of difficulty and they are fun to do. Graphics are very good and make great use of color palettes to enhance the environments. Similar gameplay to the other Dana Knightstone games - not too easy and not too difficult.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful casual game Visuallly this is a delight. You are there in Tuscany, seeing the sights, and what pretty sights they are. The storyline moves smoothly about and the minigames while interestting can be solved easily, and you do not have a feeling of spending too much time on them when you could be admiring the sights. They REALLY know how to do HOS. They are beautiful to look at - and quite often germane to the story. A perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dana Knightstone sequel Another great Dana Knightstone game. I'm a big fan of Boomzap games. The graphics and sound are as always excellent. Artwork is beautiful. The story is romantic and captivating. Both HOS and puzzles are fun and not too difficult. More games like this one please!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Puzzle, a Book and a Mental Journey Combined! This game gave me an amazing experience both in technical and storyline aspects. My main comments are: 1) it had a great storyline which created the magic sense of a film or even a book as with all the games of these series 2) although it gave attention to the story it did not lack interesting games and puzzles. It was a fantastic combination of story and game play but in addition it present a great sense of involvement to the story for the gamer.
