★★★★☆ - Hodnocení v rámci žánru Hidden object

Kupoval jsem za 2.59 euro a mohu doporučit. Dohrál jsem na nejlehčí obtížnost bez HINTů a přeskakování miniher za 5 a půl hodiny.

Pěkná steampunková hledačka od Artifex Mundi, normálně bych dal i 5 hvězd, ale jelikož jsem u tohoto vývojářského týmu zvyklý na precizně odvedenou práci, musím tentokrát jednu hvězdu ubrat. Grafika, hratelnost, hudba, dialogy, videosekvence, nové nápady, puzzle, bonusy a další, to je vše opět parádní. Bohužel v tom všem jsem dvě vady na kráse našel.

Kromě psaných skrytých objektů, zde občas hledáš i předměty, které jsou pouze zobrazené v dolní HO liště. na tom by nebylo nic špatného, kdyby zobrazení předmětů nebylo tak malinké a neurčité. Člověk tam pak šilhá jak exot a ani neví, co vlastně hledá. Druhým nedostatkem je naklikávání u některých objektů a puzzlů. Občas je potřeba na něco kliknout víckrát, než to hra akceptuje. To samé se děje i u některých puzzle miniher. Je to matoucí a frustrující. Naštěstí takových situací není ve hře příliš, ale jsou tam.

+ Přiměřená rozsáhlost celé hry
+ Nové nápady
+ Rychlé přesouvání pomocí mapy
+ Grafika
+ Příběh
+ Dialogy
+ 3 stupně obtížnosti
+ Minihry
+ Bonusy po dokončení hry
+ Achievementy
+ Sběratelské karty

- Zobrazení některých předmětů (neurčité a matoucí)
- Akceptace správného kliku (někdy je potřeba kliknou vícekrát na předmět, případně na jiné místo předmětu)

If you like the Artifex Mundi style, then you'll probably like Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink. I have to admit, this developer has changed my opinion on hidden object games in general because their titles consistently manage to combine an engaging story with puzzles that are challenging but not taxing or tedious, quality artwork, and music and voice acting that suit the story well. Clockwork Tales delivers, and is probably one of my favorites in this genre.

I really like the Steampunk aesthetic, personally, so I thought it worked nicely into the format of a hidden object game. The bad guys here are militaristic fanatics with suspiciously German-sounding accents, so it's pretty obvious what imagery they were trying to evoke, but (pseudo-)Nazis blend well with the Steampunk style. I was amused by the effort to include a bit of a science/geology theme in some of the puzzles and in the story, and I also appreciated that (like several of the other AM games I have played) the protagonist of the story was female.

Clockwork Tales is not terribly difficult or long, and the game probably lacks much replay value, It's still pretty entertaining and I enjoyed the few hours I spent playing. The achievements can be won in just a few hours of casual gameplay, so if that's your thing, then this is your game. It's also a family-friendly game as most of the puzzles aren't too difficult and the theme isn't very scary.

Simply put, this is the best hidden object game I've ever played. Consuming plot that totally sweeps you in. Moderate challenge even on the easy setting. Complete gold of the point an click genre.

This is another of a multitude of games that has become fairly standard bundle fare. That said, this one was still pretty good. It was on the very easy side as far as point and click adventures go, with only two puzzles that I can think of that really provided any challenge at all. That said, I think this was meant to be a more casual game, and so it succeeds in that regard. It's not a game that anybody is really going to get stumped with. It looked nice. The graphics were pretty and well done for the most part. The voice acting was not notable (neither good nor bad), and the story was decent. The Steampunk setting was pretty cool overall.

Overall, I give this game about 6.5 out of 10. not a must play, but the 4 hours or so it will take you to complete it wont be something you regret either.

A good hidden object adventure game mixed with some good puzzles to solve. There's nothing extremely difficult about this game or its puzzles, it's a casual game through and through. However, the storyline is interesting and is fun to follow. The puzzles are also well embedded to compliment the storyline rather than taking you away from the reality that the story creates. Fun game.

Hidden Object Game/ casual/ relaxing

Unless you're a big fan of HO-games I would only recommend 1 of the many Artifex Mundi-titles. I was in the mood for some steampunk chillness so chose this title (played an hour every couple of days with some hot coco before bedtime)
Anyway Artifex Mundi nailed the casual feeling of a HOG. Mildly challenging puzzles, good atmosphere, nice music and drawings. If i had anything bad to say it would be my dislike for the morphing rubber face technique they applied, just looks goofy and out of place.

A solid HOG game.

Clockwork Tales is another great Artifex Mundi title. This game is great for those who love Clockpunk or Steampunk themed games. The atmosphere and graphical content is pretty incredible for such a short game. Clockwork Tales is one of Artifex's shorter titles, but the gameplay is core. While the story is short, the puzzles tend to be more challenging than many other Artifex Mundi games.

All in all this is a fun game all around, and if you're familiar with the Artifex Mundi engine, then you'll know your way around just fine. Althought it is a short story, the content is rich and the environment is beautiful.

6.5/10 - Recommend to Artifex Mundi lovers, Clockpunk + Steampunk fans, and HOGers.
(On a conservative scale)

A really good HOG game, good artwork and voice acting and a story that grows on you. Artifex Mundi once again prove that they have this style of gameplay mastered. If you are at all interested in this style of game then get this title. If nothing else it might encourage the devs to do second game set in this world. And trust me, we want that.

A straightforward Steampunk puzzler, focusing more on puzzles than on hidden-objects games. While the story is simple, both the voice acting and artwork are top-notch. Unlike other Artifex Mundi games, the story only took about 2½ hrs to complete. Certainly worth buying while on sale if you are looking for a relaxing and modest puzzler.

Picked up Clockwork Tales: Of Glass And Ink during a sale, right after completing Nightmares Of The Dark: Cursed Heart from the same game publisher.
You play a female secret agent investigating the disappearance of a steampunk scientist in a small mountain town. It quickly becomes clear he has stumbled upon a great danger for the entire world.
The main game is a point & click adventure, combined with some sub-games; mostly, which are usually not too difficult to solve. Second there are the hidden object games, where you need to find a list of objects in a single scene.
I still recommend this game as it is still quite entertaining, but this certainly isn't the best game in its genre. The main and bonus story can be completed in 3 hours or even less. Compared to Cursed Heart the story of Clockwork Tales wasn't very captivating either...

Score: 6/10

Pro:
+ nice graphics
+ additional bonus story

Contra:
- really too short

Clockwork Tales: Of Glass And Ink is a an easy point and click adventure with hidden object and logic puzzles. I've personally cleared every puzzle without any assistance on the hardest difficulty level. I'm not trying to brag, but rather I'm the same guy who can hardly solve any puzzles in 7th Guest or 11th Hour. On the flip side, the puzzles aren't too absurd or abstract, so you're never in a position to randomly guess at a solution. As for the voice acting and the animated transitions, they are welcoming to break up the monotony of solving puzzle after puzzle. The overall story though is lacking in material. The game feels like a chunk of a bigger unwritten story. The prequel story only creates more questions than it answers. Overall, I had a great time, even if it was pretty short. If you like creative puzzles without being overwhelmed, give this a shot.

An OK hidden-object game.

The "steampunk" setting is engaging, but far too cliché and underdeveloped. Don't expect much in terms of story or depth in the world.

Still, the gameplay is solid (IF you like the hidden-object genre) and fun.

Hidden Object games do get a lot of flak, and I must admit to being one of their harshest critics. This is primarily because some companies who once made standard point and click adventures have instead jumped ship to these games. Focus Multimedia are an example taking the Art of Murder and Chronicles of Mystery series from point and click to Hidden Object games in their later instalments.

The trouble is that a lot of these games are made on a budget, one that is very tight and they often look it. The gameplay is often usually a few scenes and some random objects in a list. There are exceptions however in this genre and I'm please to say Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink is one of these. DON'T go in expecting a point and click, it is still an HOG but at least it appears to be of decent quality and the game length isn't bad.

I got hold of this in a sale on Steam and it was worth the money.

A very good HOA game, interesting storyline, challenging puzzles with all the steam punk clockworks you could ask for. When I say challenging puzzles I mean challenging enough not to bore me to death without making me run to a guide for everyone. Graphics are well done and atmospheric and the music is complementary and non-intrusive. If you liked this game you should try The Clockwork Man and vice versa.

A really good Artifex Mundi game. However, I noticed that it was a bit shorter than the other ones. I finished it in approx. 4hrs but it it was really fun! Good graphics, story and original puzzles.

I had a blast playing this game. Couldn't drop it until the end. It is both a hidden object and a point and click adventure game with beautiful graphics and storyline. I loved the music and the atmosphere, and I recommend it for all ages.
