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.
