About This Game

Game’s action takes place in a magical land of Namariel, where magic and science joint together. The game is played from the first person; you will see the world through the eyes of king’s daughter, who was overthrown by the brutal Iron Lord.

We selected Steam Punk as a style of the game, which means that you will find many interesting puzzles, interactions with objects and mechanisms. The player will have to escape from the air prison, find the Great Prophet in magic forest, reveal the secret of the Iron Lord, sneak into his citadel and rid Namariel from cruel tyrant.

We tried to invent something new, for example there is “mind reading device” in the gameplay; by using this item you’ll be able to divine thoughts of characters, who are unable to communicate with you. Also you will have a robot assistant at your disposal, his name is Jim, he will help you in solving quests, and also, from time to time you’ll be able to switch controls of both main character and Jim to walk through levels with his assistance.

Large game world, many magnificent locations and lots of pleasant animation; by the way, animation is what we are especially proud of, because we are a small studio, but we really wanted to do our best in terms of quality, so that you would like it.

In spite of the linear gameplay, at the same time there is a freedom in choosing several quests to resolve, not connected among themselves, we don’t lead you by the hand, giving you rein to choose.

Dozens of brain-teasers, mini-games and innovative solutions, ranging from simple mini-games in two moves to advanced mode mini-games, where help of your assistant may be needed.

I enjoyed this puzzle game, visually very pleasing, some interaction with other people and creatures, the little robot helper was great felt the creators could have used him a little more in the game play, you know build on his personality. The puzzles are fairly easy, there is a strategy guide. A couple of days fun, Im happy, hope this helps

Good point and click adventure game, with puzzles.
Difficulty is well balanced, puzzles are logic and, if you ever go crazy, there is a step-by-step guide to save your ♥♥♥.
Short, as usual.

What a sleeper this game is! Fun, fast paced, LOGICAL, unique puzzles, lots of unusual maze types, well written storyline, and though it is not technically a Hidden Object game (no HO scenes) it plays like one. It has a find and use inventory and is classified as a Hidden Object game by most game companies. I really recommend this game. Plus it is steampunk. How can anyone go wrong with that? (Circa 2013)

Storyline: When the Princess of Namariel was one year old the Kingdom was invaded by the Iron Lord. Her mother while fleeing with her infant daughter gets tripped by the nasty mechnical centipede and the baby flies out the tower window. The infant instead of falling to her death she is snatched out of the air by a fleeing citizen in his balloon airship. Fast forward 17 years, and the Iron Lord has found out where the fleeing citizen, the great inventor Davincino (and yes, that sounds just like DaVinci) has been hiding. Of course the Iron Lord sends his mechanized minions to capture Davincino and our young former princess sets out to rescue her Uncle Davincino. Several plot twists later, she discovers she is the Princess of Namariel, just exactly who the Iron Lord is, and becomes the savior of her Kingdom.

Gameplay: As I have said before this plays just like an Hidden Object game with a find and use inventory, and most game companies classify it as a Hidden Object game. The only thing missing are actual Hidden Object scenes. The gameplay is very logical and is very fast paced. The game does make one tongue in cheek comment about not having a screwdiver so something else must be used. Truly a recognition of HO gamers complaints that if one has a hammer why, oh why can one not just break the window with it instead of having to use convoluted means to open it. Best example of the games mind set on this subject is when needing a three pronged lever, one gets to use a three pronged fork. (Thumbs Up)

There is no map, it is not really needed. The play scope is generally limited to only three or four areas at a time. Since the game logically progresses in a linear fashion, once an area is complete the player can not go back. There are 8 chapters in the main game and a bonus chapter which is an after mass epilogue.

Puzzles: For me, I had great time with these puzzles, many I consider to be classics. Some of these puzzle types (brain teasers, dots, logic) I have not seen in years and are not found in newer games. This game also uses all types of mazes. The aquarium is three phase maze puzzle, though not hard, certainly makes one think.

Overall nothing in this game is difficult to figure out but it does take a bit of thinking to solve the problem or puzzle presented. The in-game achievements are nothing like to ones found in newer games. There are filled-in characters instead of their silhouette making a scene. There is a built in strategy guide, and two game modes, casual and expert. Extras include wallpapers, videos (cut scenes), concept art, music, etc. One last thing the player gets two helpers: a squirrel cat that loves acorns and a flying round robot named Jim. : )

Highly recommend the game. It plays in about 6-7 hours depending on how fast the gamer plays.
One last comment the Steam price is less expensive then other game sites.

6/10. Not without its charms. A big step up from PlayRIX's other bug-riddled game, Fall of the New Age. This one plays like a lesser Artifex Mundi game,without hidden object scenes (there might be one or two). Simplistic adventure point and click scenarios. Fun & entertaining for its short length, as long as you're not looking for anything too challenging.

Short version: 85%
Namariel Legends may look like a hidden object title, but it is actually a short point ‘n’ click adventure with no hidden object scenes. It has a good story, nice visuals, and a decent amount of casual difficulty puzzles.

Long version:
Namariel Legends: Iron Lord looks like a hidden object game, feels like a hidden object game, and plays like a hidden object game. The user interface, the point ‘n’ click elements, the casual puzzles, and the gorgeous hand-drawn graphics all point to a modern hidden object title, except for one thing: it doesn’t have hidden object scenes. Not a single one.

The story is as simple as it can get: an evil overlord takes over the fairy tale/steampunk kingdom, and to save said kingdom and its royal couple, you must destroy the overlord’s power source.
Strangely though, it works. Despite the simple setup, it is an exciting and fast-paced adventure from almost start to finish.
The level design is another strong point. It never hinders you, but gives a fair challenge.

If you expected a hidden object title, you may be disappointed, but otherwise Namariel Legends is a fun game for anyone.

Beautiful art, but really a one-note game.

Namariel Legends is a beautiful game artisticly... at least for the most part. The gorgeous hand-painted backgrounds and items are a delight to look at. The CG bits are clumsily done in every way, but they can be forgiven for just how beautiful all of the rest of the art in the game looks. Adventure game designers take note: THIS is a game to emulate in the graphics department.

Unfortunately there's no real story to this game. Really there are only a half dozen 'story' events and none of them really build character or make the world feel alive. The rest of your time is spent on the most tired of Point-and-click adventure game tropes: Rubbing things on other things. Because the art is so beautiful, this often turns into a pixel hunt for items since nothing stands out visually. It's all beautiful... but that also kinda works against it. Yea, there are a few other puzzles but most of them aren't that interesting and serve to bog down the game rather than move it forward.

That's not to say this is all bad. With one or two exceptions, the puzzles are at least logical. Or... rather... they pretty much tell you what to do by reading the text at the top of the screen. The fact that there's a help button and strategy guide built into the game also prevents you from getting stuck. Likewise all of the really difficult puzzles can just be skipped outright, which I had to do on only two occasions. Because these 'cheat' features keep the game moving forward it can serve a an OK introduction to the genre for those who have never experienced a point-and-click adventure game.

I should also make note about the game's soundtrack. Great music... but often poorly used. There are a few tracks that create a very tense atmosphere including one right at the beginning of the game when the high stakes and hair raising action involve... finding oil for an artificial leg. Yea... not exactly the best time for the "hurry up or people will die" track.

Speaking of, the game also tries its best to make for a couple of tense moments... but because it's a point-and-click adventure there's no real possibility that you're in danger. Once you realize this, all of the 'danger' seems really artificial and almost off-putting. Why lock off half of a screen when realistically the 'dangerous' thing can't hurt you? Gameplay/narative segregation at its finest.

Finally there's the lack of followthrough for one of the mechanics I thought would be most interesting: The mind-reading device you get at the beginning of the game. Yea, for being made such a big deal of you really only need to use it three or four times... and even then could probably get on without it for most of the puzzles. It's like they forgot about it half way through development or added it in last-minute. A real shame.

I feel bad giving this a thumbs down. It's obvious that the artists worked their fingers off creating an amazing looking game. It's really just a shame that the game's designers didn't put the same level of skill into their part of the craft. :(

Very good game set in a steampunk world where a princess must save her kingdom from the Iron Lord and his mechanical army. At the highest difficulty there aren't HO scenes but only minigames and puzzles, so it isn't technically a Hidden Object Game, but an Adventure game. The Premium Edition has also a bonus playable chapter and nice extras, there are achievements but only in-game. Absolutely recommended.

A lovely casual point-and-click adventure (*not* a hidden-object game). It's quite long and there's lots to do, including plenty of simple but satisfying mini-games. It's all quite easy, so make sure to play in advanced mode to at least give it a little bit of a challenge!

The story is dumb, but It's very pretty, and the engaging steampunk world is full of cute critters and robots, and ... terrible voice acting. I guess you can't win it all.

The negative reviews are silly! There are many people who enjoy casual adventure games. If you are such a person, you will love this one.

I'd also like to thank the developer for supporting Linux!

"Namariel Legends: Iron Lord Premium Edition" isn't a Hidden Object Game (HOG), but it feels just like one. It's a casual, point and click adventure game that's got good graphics, pretty good voice acting (better than you'd get in an Artifex Mundi game) and a reasonable story. I played under Linux without trouble and completed the base game in 5 hours. Add another 0.8 hours for the bonus chapter and it's a good, fun game. The puzzles are a bit easy. But, it's still fun. Recommended.

A fun point and click puzzle game, with some terrific steampunk-inspired artwork. The puzzles are not too hard, which I think is a good thing.

Overall, a 6/10 I would say. It is a good pass-the-afternoon point and click. I don't go into these games with a lot of expectations. The mini games are easier then usual. Definitely play the advanced mode. What was disappointing was the story line. It is hard to say why without giving spoilers. All I can say is that you won't feel connected even though you should be. If you like closure, you won't get it here. Lots of holes in the main story line and even the little details. But the steam punk aspect is cool, and most of the acting is tolerable. Get it on sale, for sure.

A steampunk adventure puzzle game, not a HOG, Namariel Legends was an unexpected surprise. I picked it up in bundle never having heard of it, and found a gem. On launching the game, the main menu makes it feel like a standard run of the mill HOG (Hidden Object Game), but when you click play, what you get is a strong point and click adventure with lots and lots of puzzles. The art style was excellent, the puzzles challenging, the story interesting enough to keep you playing, and a nice soundtrack.

The only negatives were that the music was repetitive (can be turned off), the plot was typical and predictable (main character is not what they seem and is prophesied to save the world), and in places the story left me asking questions .... why did they want to blow up their own perfectly good airship when you were trapped on it and had nowhere to go?

Having said that, I thought the game was a lot of fun, the bonus content was large and took almost an hour to complete with as much quality and attention to detail as the main story, it's a nice length, not too long, or too short, of about 3-4 hours of gameplay, maybe more if you aren't familiar with the genre and I don't think adventure game or HOG fans would be disappointed if they bought this. Highly recommended!

I enjoyed it- it has some fun puzzles, some interesting little mini-games. The hint system worked well- gave a tree of clues (i.e. starting at the most obvious hints leading to the most obscure, and you can stop at any time you figure out where it's leading without spoiling the entire puzzle). The story got a little odd at the end, but it was alright- the voice acting was also alright for the most part- all-in-all I'd definately say worth $7.

Puzzles feel too straight-forward on the harder difficulty. Not a bad game, just not something I could easily recommend.

No map, fussy activation points, twitchy mini-games, and bad (jumpy, jittery, non-intuitive) controls on many of the non-twitchy mini-games.

I dont wanna write my own since its already stated in the positive reviews. But I wanna just note that the game is very good for point and click. I just wish it was made in higher resolution.

And the amount of animation in this game is so good, I've seen this no where in other point and click.
