Sarah receives shocking news from her father. One of the newest members in the Order of the Griffins has turned traitor, murdering one of the Secret Five, the heads of the Order. What’s worse is that very traitor is about to join the Secret Five, and he’s wearing a mask that gives him supernatural abilities. Sarah has to race back through time and search for the one artifact that can subdue the mask: a magical scepter.
We finally doing the real time-travel! With Royal Griffin ship, we jump back to the past and present in order to save father and his friends again. In The Secret Order: Masked Intent, we get lots of HOP and wide variety of puzzle. Sometimes, playing and revisit the same HOP location can be exhausting. But don’t worry, you can switch it to mahjong puzzle. In fact, I was switched to mahjong from start until ending :p
The visual is upgrade from the first game, New Horizon. It more bright, fancy but still looks stiff, especially the character. Good thing they put voice over in game.
If you purchase Collector’s Edition, you’ll get additional adventure in the middle game. Usually we have to complete the whole game before unlocking bonus adventure, but in The Secret Order: Masked Intent, you don’t have to. This additional game act as if they are part of main game.
The Secret Order: Masked Intent’s plot doesn’t feel like continuation of New Horizon, more like standalone. Although it feel separated, Masked Intent is worth to play as we able to see the improvement of the series. It have several flaws, yes, but it shouldn’t stop you to enjoy the fancy visual and fun gameplay of The Secret Order: Masked Intent.
