After their brilliant Nightmares from the Deep: The Siren?s Call, here comes Artifex Mundi?s next highlight? This game definately has it all!! Graphics and cutscenes are tremendously welldone. Loved all those charakters with their german accent, it was a lot of fun to listen to their conversations, made me laugh more than once! 3 modes to choose from, 9 chapters plus bonus-chapter, lockable inventory, strategy guide doesn?t follow your progress, direction giving hint, map shows you available action and takes you there. A mechanical raven, Mathew, is your helping friend! Lots of different hidden object scenes: fragments, silhouettes, find and use items, and slightly interactive from list. Even more minigames, most of them wellknown and good to solve, like slider-puzzles, rotate rings to form a pattern, turn all lights red? Extras: 30 different hidden steambugs, lots of achievements, re-playable minigames and hidden object scenes, concept art, music, posters and bonus-chapter. Truly high recommended!!!! :)

I liked it! I love HG Well-sian art; Victorian gizmos and mechanical things, so I got a big kick out of the art and the story. I only played the demo, so I cannot say how long this game is, but I figure it's a good buy with the reduced prices going on this weekend for CEs. The voices are well done, the HOs are fun and slightly different, in that you do not seem to complete everything in the scene, so you will be going back to the same set. There are bugs to collect and achievements. The HOs and mini games will be accessible in the extras, as well as a bonus chapter. I thought the graphics were beautiful and the story interesting...can't wait to get back to it and catch that nasty worm thing! Well done.

Don't listen to the negs, try it yourself!

I was a little surprised by the negative reviews for this game, it seemed promising. I decided to try the demo. I loved every minute of the demo, and since purchasing, have continued to find this game to be a great gem! Fans of the genre need to try it out, nuff said.

Finally something a little different

Nice story, no castles or monsters-little tired of those. Mix of hidden object, fragmented object and puzzles. Level of challenge was about perfect for me. I think I skipped 1 puzzle and didn't use any hints. I played on the medium level since I like the hidden object scenes indicated. It was quite fun and entertaining. I got a chuckle when I clicked on the little girl with the cat in the Inn and she sang "Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur" from the Big Bang Theory. I like games that have little extras to find-mechanical bugs in this one. Voice acting was very professional for the most part, everything ran smoothly, graphics were very good and clear. Quality game, in my opinion.

Gorgeous game

If you're sick of demented werewolves and bloody corpses and love beautiful graphics, daring adventure and an interesting storyline then this is the game for you. So excited to find an adventure/HO game that isn't dark and depressing but instead offers good, old-fashioned baddies and an immersive world full of wonder. I love the setting in what seems to be a Bavarian village, with German townsfolk in traditional garb and accents to boot. I enjoyed the mini-games as well, some of which I hadn't encountered before. The HO scenes were delightful too, and there were was a good balance between the two. The only minus (and this is a small one) was that the ending seemed rather abrupt and hurried, almost as if the developers ran out of time/money and had to cut it short. Still, this is only a minor bug and certainly doesn't detract from the game itself, which more than makes up for it. I hope to see more games like this on BF!

Great game

Just finished the demo & immediately bought the game. Although I was dissappointed that the demo ended long before my "free" hour was up. I play a good number of games, but still consider myself a casual player. I often get frustrated by the difficulty of the puzzles & HOGs. For me in this game both had the perfect level of challenge. I loved the graphics, music & story-line-even though I am not really sure what steam punk is ;-).

I am loving it

It is hard to believe the other reviewer has played the same game as I am playing. This is a great game - I have been playing for 3 hours now - and according to the guide am about half way through, The protagonist is a foreign agent meeting her guardian in an 19th century German steam punk village. Her guardian is then kidnaped by this engineer who is causing earthquakes, building robots and planning bad things. With the help of your guardian's robot bird, you are out to save the day. There are beautiful landscapes to get through, interesting villagers to interact with and mechanical marvels to assemble. There are all types of HOP, fragmented and interactive, as well as list, The map is interactive and allows for jumps. You have achievements to earn and robot bugs to collect. I am having a delightful time, and thus highly recommend this game.

I really really really liked this game.....

The storyline is a bit confusing at first. You are a detective and you have been called upon by your mentor, Dr. Mentor, to the town of Hochwald that is being slowly and then inevitably completely ruined by a HUGE tremor caused by a big bad (really big - like half the size of the empire state building) mechanical robot. But, each time a tremor hits, all Dr. Ink says isi " this is bad and getting worse". No kidding doc! There are soldiers everywhere - baddies and the huge, big, bad mechanical robot rams his fist through the wall and kidnaps Dr. Ink, grabbing him and putting him in a cage where he is carried on the robot's back up to a castle beyond the town in the mountains. And then a zeppelin appears so, of course, you go around town finding pieces of the soldier's outfit so you can disguise yourself and get on said zeppelin. Why walk when you can fly - seriously, that's what she said - lol. There are cute things so - yes. There is an amazingly cute gold mechanical bird that was Dr. Ink's companion but gets destroyed in the last quake - but you put him together and he becomes your companion/hint. His name is Matthew (love it - my son's name). The people in town seem to being nice and helpful. Now, on to the other things I deem not quite so important but take notes on just for you: If you click on the "extras" icon you can actually find the achievements room - you have a boatload (ok - 25) of achievements you can get and they seem to form an image of a woman. Well, not seem, they do. You also have to - well, you don't have to but you can - collect 30 mechanical bugs (11 in Hochwald, 8 elsewhere, and 11 someplace else) - you're actually told where you can find them - not specifically - but like in town, etc. And they are not difficult to find because they are bugs, mechanical and not small. I found like 5 before the FT ended (which only took me 35 mins.). There is also a bonus game called "Ink's story", along with all the wallpapers, soundtracks, etc., etc. The HOGs that

I should have waited a day for this 1/2 price sale but I couldn't LOL

Others have described the game play very well and I usually just play the demo and then wait for a half price sale. This one I was enjoying it so much that I bought it anyway! Then, of course, it came on sale for 1/2 price today! Of the list on sale I have them all except the 3 TD & TM games :( Anyway, I am enjoying the game - not too difficult but not easy either. A great way to spend a Sunday. Try it you might like it and with the 1/2 price sale well worth the cost :) Enjoy!

Agree with KushkaW. Very lovely game with lots to do. If you don't like dialogue, you probably won't like it much because you sometimes have to talk to people to find out what needs to be done. Variety types of HOS and puzzles, which aren't too complicated. Like KushkaW, this would be much longer game for me than the 2 1/2 hours someone said the game was. I like to play casual and take in the well-crafted environments. I play to enjoy, not to see how fast I can finish. Game has very good production values and beautifully conceived and executed details. Can't wait for the ending, even though it's probably what I'd expect.
