About the Game

Would you like to enter a thrilling Pirates world where danger lurks in every corner?

You are a museum owner pursuing an undead pirate who kidnapped your daughter. You quickly realize that the villain is entangled in a tragic, centuries-old love story, and wants to resurrect his mistress with the girl’s life force. You feel sorry for the pirate, but you have to stop him before it is too late for your daughter…

You will leave the modern museum quickly, and find your way to rundown pirate settings, all of them three centuries old. Since the time of the golden age of piracy, the locations have become neglected, deserted and overgrown with plants. Full moon, bones laying on the ground, and a skull-shaped rock add to the dark atmosphere of the mysterious island.
What tragic events took place on the island before your arrival? What evil powers can make an old, rotting ship sail? Is the horrifying, undead pirate really as evil as he seems?

You will find answers to these questions during your trip through the ghost ship haunting the seas of the Caribbean, the grim Skull Island where pirates’ bones cover the ground, a ruined fortress ridden by cannonballs and catacombs stretching below the island’s surface. Are you strong enough to save your daughter? Will you dare to lift the curse?

All in all, if you love the spooky, mystery subset of hidden object games, you will love The Cursed Heart.

This is a surprisingly nice adventure game, blending 3 genres into one game nicely. Puzzles are plentiful and varied, everything is logical and falls good into darkish atmosphere. A bit on an easy side, though.

Another great adventure game. If you are looking for challenging point and click game, this one is really worth your time. Not too hard to solve but not too easy though.

Nowhere near as good as Artifex Mundi's more recent Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink.

The map is huge, requires a lot of backtracking and the elements of point and click puzzles are scarce and uninteresting. Give this one a pass unless you're a huge fan of HOGs and/or mahjong.

Point and click of hidden items. Funny but short game, i finished it and extra mission in 4 hours. You should try this little gem if you like this kind of game. I like it so i really enjoyed it.

Estamos ante un juego de buscar objetos ocultos y resolver acertijos bastante facilotes, sin embargo el juego engancha y dan ganas de terminarlo de un tirón. No es muy largo, en 4 horas se hace fácil, incluyendo la campaña extra. Si te gusta este tipo de juegos entonces te recomiendo que lo pruebes, seguro que te gusta.

A very good example of the casual adventure game.
Wonderful and detailed artwork, albeit with fuzzy cutscenes and mediocre voice acting.
Great selection of puzzles including 'find the object' (you can bypass this with a minigame of mahjong if you want) that consistently keep you engaged.

A great game to drink and decompress with that makes you feel clever without straining your brain.
