Appeal Factor For fans of the genre, this game hits all of the right notes. The distraught man must make his way through the city, find his loved ones, and get to the bottom of the attacks. Hidden object scenes have a good deal of interactivity to add to the fun. A single sparkle will help identify areas and objects that require further examination or to picked up and added to the inventory. I was honestly hooked to the story. You can opt to play in Casual mode with a one-minute recharging for the Hint feature and sparkles identifying interactive areas or the Expert mode which does away with the sparkles indicator and doubles the recharge delay. A good example is one level where you need to roll a window up on a car in order to get the heart drawn on it. Casual mode has sparkles that show areas of interactivity and when hidden object scenes are available. Loved everything about it, the length is what I would expect from a CE - it's perfect! Animation is not to be found among characters, which is a shame, though understandable. Hints are unlimited, but you may need to wait for the button to recharge. Can anyone help? You could try playing on expert mode, but all that does is reduce your hints and make you spend more time clicking random objects.

In hidden object scenes, the screen freezes momentarily if you click randomly too many times. Dark Strokes hits all of the usual notes while offering the same easy to play mechanics that casual players love. The same can be said for the rest of the game. This special Collector's Edition has bonus content and strategy guide that will not be in the standard version of the game when it is released.. I will be buying this as soon as I have cash in hand!!! Items stay in the Inventory until no longer needed. Look at the Journal often. The graphics are gorgeous and completely detailedsimply over the top. The puzzles are interesting and very well done including one or two I've never seen before. Oh yeah. When objects interact with each other, there is an appropriate sound. Faceless men, hidden objects, a Forbidden City, kidnapped victims and a train wreck are just some of the elements of a new game from Alawar.

Dark Strokes Sins of the Fathers - Part 1 Walkthrough

There are plenty of items and plenty of sounds. Located on the left side of the inventory are your journal and the main menu option. Your games are awesome - amazing graphics, long games, etc. You can also listen to any song or watch any cut scene at will. Some items require a trick to find though. I have never played a game like this one, and there is no other as far as a comparison. Hidden object games are pretty darn addicting to begin with, but a great story will take it to the next level. In hidden object scenes, the screen freezes momentarily if you click randomly too many times. This special Collector's Edition has bonus content and strategy guide that will not be in the standard version of the game when it is released.. Beautiful graphics, great story line and length is well worth the CE cost. It does nothing to distinguish itself from the pack, even if it is enjoyable stuff. Hidden object scenes have a good deal of interactivity to add to the fun.

  1. Hidden object games are pretty darn addicting to begin with, but a great story will take it to the next level. Oh yeah. The city is a pretty neat place.

  2. The church looks fantastic. This is pretty much what I expect from this kind of game. When I came back to actually play it, I played through the whole thing in one sitting, bonus chapter included.

  3. The graphics are gorgeous and completely detailedsimply over the top. Taking a full-screen approach, a cluttered scene will be presented with a list of objects to be found arranged across the bottom of the screen. A successful completion of a puzzle rewards you with a piece of vital equipment or entry to a location.

  4. Dark Strokes hits all of the usual notes while offering the same easy to play mechanics that casual players love. I approve of this. Definitely not the same old, same old cookie-cutter affair here, rather, a great deal of time, thought, and care went into this one.

  5. This is pretty much what I expect from this kind of game. There are some more complicated examples as well. I went back into the strategies menu and the crowbar I used for the drain should not have been spent until after the first-aid box and stairs. Items to find are listed across the bottom of the screen. It does nothing to distinguish itself from the pack, even if it is enjoyable stuff.

  6. It does exactly what it needs to. This is one case where the ease of gameplay came in handy. It seems to me like a crowbar would be a great way to open just about anything, but there was one particularly nasty box that refused to be opened.

  7. The bonus chapter included with the CE is actually a bonus chapter for once instead of the real ending. The story line was gripping and held until even after the bonus play. Thank you, "Kathey" for your review. The graphics are gorgeous and completely detailedsimply over the top. Balance There are two difficulty settings.

  8. The only puzzles I found difficult where the slide puzzles. Thanks, Mikhail. Some can be added to your inventory, and others require you to interact with them in some way. The game is simple to learn, not too hard to master, and therefore hard to put down.

  9. The game is lengthy as evidenced by the strategy guide which has 14 chapters and 4 bonus chapters for a total of pages. It seems to me like a crowbar would be a great way to open just about anything, but there was one particularly nasty box that refused to be opened. The story line was gripping and held until even after the bonus play.
