Story:

I have to say, I’m not really happy with the premise but the moment I enters the MC’s mind, I’m overjoy. This games will made you act as if you’re Hercule Poirot. You’re not just collecting clues and intervewing random people, but you have your own deduction board to create temporary hypothesis. I love how 4Friends made this game as if we’re really involve with story. This is why I dislike cliche’ but can love in the process because in every cliche, everyone has different perspective on how to develop it.

I just little bit disappointed with the choice of ending, because I expected it will give big impact, but not. Even in the bonus chapter, there’s only slight different response. Anyway, for some reason, the way the developer gives two options, questioning the suspect’s action is remind me with Agatha Christie’s Murder On The Orient Express. In other games, the detective seems have no mercy. We know it’s all about revenge, but we sometimes didn’t see it in bigger picture.

Visual Production:

What a sophisticated visual. I love every cutscenes, the way 4Friends delivers the backstory throughout ink and papers which is new to the developers who usually made fantasy games. Seems like they’re use the hand-drawing and painting style for all cutscenes. It’s like fresh air from 4Friends. So different from Living Legends or Immortal Love, even Edge of Reality. I also love how they choose voice actor, especially for the protagonist. It give life into all characters, and doesn’t sound like robots.

Gameplay:

There’s no random puzzle or HOS. Everything is making story move forward. For example, the scene when protagonist interogate snitcher, we play HOS to collect evidence from him. I really like the new concept in this game. You don’t feel like got dragged by, but everything has purpose. Even all clues that we collect has meaning. Each clues we found, would be presented on Evidence Board, then we sorted it. The Evidence Board may not new feature in HOPA, because I already see it on Enigmatis, but this one is more traditional and really fits with 20th century setting.

Conclusion:

4Friends Games definitely brings detective theme in HOPA genre to the new level. If they keep this up, they might be become the best series among other detective game out there.

{GAMES} Save the Forest in Dreampath: Guardian of Forest

It’s time to train with Wizard Regis. Your lessons are cut short when your mentor is accused of trying to murder the King! It’s up to you to find out who’s really behind the attack. With dark magic at work, it won’t be an easy task. Do you have what it takes to save your teacher and the kingdom?!

Dreampath Guardian of the Forest

Start from today’s review, I’m gonna split the review into four section, Story, Visual and Audio Production, Gameplay and Conclusion.

Gameplay:

One thing that I love from Boolat Games is how they take time to craft their HOS and puzzle. They put lots of variation, even the difficulty level of puzzle has all range, from easy to medium. The fact that they only release less than other game developer doesn’t take the quality away. I personally love HOS in this game more than other. They have everything, from simple name list to fragmented pieces. And sometimes it isn’t only one type, but it layered. For example: after you finish the fragment scene, you still need to finish the name list. This is one of factor why Dreampath: Guardian of Forest are highly entertaining.

Visual and Audio Production:

I have to say, the visual in the third game of Dreampath are the most gorgeous one. They really takes time to draw and paint the smallest details. Their color palette is also beautiful. And I love how they put different choice of question in dialog scene. It made the whole interaction feels real.

Story:

Unfortunately, the storyline is the weakest part in Dreampath: Guardian of Forest. The overused and cliche’ plot about a king who got cursed by someone who close to him. It’s family problem, as usual. But the way they present the backstories is made me wanting to explore more about the characters.

Conclusion:

Boolat Games once again succesfully present wonderful, highly entertaining and beautiful games. Seeing how they create Dreampath: Guardian of Forest, we know that takes time longer can make big difference in quality.

{GAMES} Become a Chef in Mary le Chef: Cooking Passion

Working at a huge law firm was exactly what her parents had planned for her – however, it doesn’t make Mary happy at all… Instead, she spends her days dreaming about becoming a chef! Will she have the courage to chase her dreams and follow her heart?

Mary le Chef - Cooking Passion (3)

Another Delicious spin-off! If you following my blog, you’ll know that I once posted about my progress with this game. Honestly, it more slower than I play Dr. Cares. That’s why I’m late post this review.

We already have fashion theme, medical theme, beauty theme, even veteriner. But this time, we’re back to Delicious roots: cooking. Unlike Delicious, Mary le Chef takes cooking theme into a new level.

In Delicious, most of products are pre-made, so we can serve it immediately to customer. But, in Mary le Chef, most of foods are made from scratch! So, imagine you have impatient customer and you still need to cook pasta, then mix the sauce yadda yadda. It more stressful than Delicious.

How To Be Italian By Chef Luigi (Mary le Chef - Cooking Passion)(2)

 

Later I understand it add difficulty level in gameplay. Very recommended for anyone who loves challenge, because this game is super challenging. There’s time you’ll feel easy to achieve 3 stars, but there’s time you’ll need more effort and be strategic to complete the level.

Mary le Chef might feels too similar with its sister, but the storyline are fast-paced and no unnecessary drama. I wish, if they plan to add a sequel, try to put some innovation to make it different than Delicious.
