On a quest to retrieve the golden suit (marioland mode) HH powers up from clever strategic play on the Tetris puzzle.
14 January 2012
Summary: On the holy grail to find and retrieve the 8-9 pieces of a magical golden suit (marioland adventure mode), HenryH renews his strength and boosts his powers to do so from some quick and clever strategic play on the colour puzzle. Two games in one. Very "ye olde" English all the way. The dialogue is garbled on purpose (supposed to be funny) which I've found rather annoying. HH's conversation with a young apprentice prompts and gives instruction on the gameplay.
Summary: Neither the puzzle elements nor the platforming elements are very compelling on their own, and that's really the fatal flaw of this game. It's two mediocre games stapled together. The whole IS greater than the sum of the parts, but somehow I was expecting more from this mashup than was delivered. A worthy attempt that may yield a great sequel, but this one is a renter.
Summary: I ended up getting this game for free from a friend and was ecstatic about it. From the start the top screen mario-style action was consistently challenging enough to remain fun. The bottom screen bejewled-style game play was never overly challenging, but clever and fun in the way that it effected the top-screen play. After getting to the third or fourth level though I found myself completely unable to beat the level boss.
Summary: It is a good, fun game and I was so excited to find one! But after only days of playing, i got stuck! The game got too hard too fast. the lady at the game store i bought it at told me an 8 year old girl brought it in used. she said if the girl could play it, i probally could as an adult. but when i looked in the menu, her game was in there at only 12% complete. I got that far in just a few hours! the game would be perfect if it stayed simple and fun!
Summary: I'm a lifelong gamer who particularly enjoys puzzle and adventure games. I've played, loved, and posted reviews for many DS puzzle games. When I saw the ad for this game, I literally rushed right out and bought it. Maybe it's just a question of too-high expectations, but I really wanted to enjoy this game, and I was very disappointed by it. Hybrid games that combine multiple genres are all the rage now, undoubtedly boosted by the popularity of Puzzle Quest.
Summary: This game I found frustrating because it gets stupidly difficult too soon. You can't really use the stylus either, so my R.S.I. has returned that I acquired in the '80's playing mario games! I keep going back to it though, but I have outgrown platform games I think. Mistake on my part because I thought it was going to be like tetris attack that I loved on the snes. I didn't realize there was a major platform element to it.
Summary: i enjoy playing this game, it can get frustratiing sometimes when you die and have to redo the whole level again. Otherwise i like the game, im 20 and i find some bits hards so im unsure how a child will find some bits of the game to handle. the dialog is very entertainig to listen to, it can drag on abit though when they are talking. i'm looking forward to finishing the game as soon as i can get poast one bit that i keep constanlty getting stuck on!
Summary: I ordered this game after thoroughly enjoying Professor Layton. I really liked the idea of a puzzle game with a platform game thrown in for good measure. That's basically what you're getting but the platform game is just too difficult for me! If it wasn't for a game-wizard friend I would be stuck on the third level. Having said that, the puzzle zone is good and the early parts of the game itself were really enjoyable.
