About This Game

The fate of the magical world is in your hands – free it from evil!

There is a new threat looming over Nearwood: all of a sudden, winter has come down upon the land. The once green and lush landscape is now locked in ice and covered with snow, driving away the gnomes from a quiet village on the outskirts of the kingdom. Fey the Advisor again calls upon Jane for help, and together they inch their way towards the source of the cold – which turns out to be more than a mere fluke of weather. An ancient evil has awakened to take hold of Nearwood: the powerful Killiman is back for revenge after thousands of years spent in captivity between the two worlds.

As Jane and Fey explore new locations, they help the villagers survive the freeze, while once again saving Nearwood from the clutches of impending doom!

If you are looking for a true hidden object game keep looking. Yes there are hidden objects to find but you are finding shapes not really items. And what hidden object puzzles there are, are few and far between. (sorry for the cliche). On the postive side what H.O,s there are, are fair. They use no tricks like turning off the lights or giving you a time clock. And the object are usually well placed and not obscured. I played on HO game where the object was 75% covered by anohter object.

However, this is a beautiful game to look at and play. The music is good. The voice acting is better than normal and they have some nice NON-hidden object puzzles thrown into the game. In particular the last puzzle in the bonus game has, believe it or not, a boss fight. Of the puzzle variety. The main game's story is okay as long as you don't ponder its ramifications.

Bottom line, a great game to play between or during your hardcore games.

Adventure/Hidden Object game.

+ The art looks really good
* The story is pretty standard HOG stuff
* The HO scenes are not the standard "here's a lit of items to find" but instead you're looking for pieces of one item. I'd prefer the former but whatever.
- Artifex probably spoiled me, but the quick travel having to recharge after each use was frustrating. But hey, at least it does have a quick travel.

This is a fairly pretty casual adventure game; normally I'd call it a Hidden Object game, but actually the number of actual hidden object puzzles is fairly low; instead there's a wide variety of other small puzzles, tied together with a fairly simple story. The artwork is very nice for this style of game, and some of the puzzles are surprisingly complex: I had to actually skip one because I couldn't figure it out, which is a very rare occurrence. And there was another, where you rotate a collection of stars in 3D to create a constellation, which was more luck than skill. But aside from that, it's a pretty good casual point-and-click adventure game.

While I do recomend this game, I would suggets you get it under a sale.

Its feature some nice landscapes and its pretty and relaxing, but the story seems disjointed, especially the bonus.

The character are just empty and lack depth and backstory.
