Summary: This is a game which really has much pleasure to offer. The graphics are great and I do love to walk around in that town, the voicing is good, the cutscenes are interesting - and almost all the time i did know what to do next or where to go. You have a map, which shows places of interest (but you cannot jump to them), the hintbutton is a nice gray cat, and it reloads pretty quickly.
Summary: I just finished this splendid game, and throughout playing was totally mesmerized and involved. Yes, a bit tricky navigating, especially since (due to my work schedule) had to play over several days. Therefore, the SG was very helpful to me, in remembering where I was in the game and a helpful hint as to what to do next. I totally enjoyed the mini-games. Yes, heavy on the HO scenes, but they were relevant IMO.
Summary: 3 stars is actually generous for this subpar adventure HOG. Game is beautifully drawn but not fun to play. If you're looking for HO hunts, you've got them here aplenty, but not much more. Inventory becomes overstuffed and cumbersome before you can even use anything. Game gives basically no direction as to where to go next and every opened door seems to reveal 3 more for which keys need to be found.
Summary: I thought this game had a lot going for it really. it's long and absolutely gorgeous. I have to agree with Eldee on this one and say that it's Blue Tea games and they're a buy. They seem to get better with each time out and this one shows a good progression in storyline production. I really liked the addition of the morphing objects and they were harder to find as they didn't always morph first time through, I also liked the abilities..
Summary: I really wish I hadn't bought this. Storyline is uninteresting, graphics decent but overall, a poor game. For fans of the HO games, it's not worth it. I wouldn't recommend buying this unless you can get it at a ridiculously low price.
Summary: Dark Piper is the second game I've played where the Hint feature is a cat. But the gray cat in Dark Piper had none of the charm of the eager little cat in Cats of Ulthar. The gray cat acted like it really didn't give a rat's patoot what you did, turning its back on you and swishing its tail in your face after it deigned to give you a Hint. It wouldn't even sit on the right side of the screen, like a normal Hint feature is supposed to.
Summary: (Bought "on the spot" and played about 45 minutes so far) Well--a Blue Tea game? Step right up and hit the BFG "Buy It" button, as far as I'm concerned! The intro and opening screen (the town below, and the Piper standing on a rooftop, his cape billowing in the wind) mesmerized me. The Options Menu has the necessary stuff--three sound sliders, cursor choice, screen choice (I've read that wide screen works--Yay, for those gamers that need that!), three gameplay modes.
Summary: One of the most boring games ever,I agree with another member who wrote a review,it would be just ok for a new player to these games but not to us veterans Most of the game was taken up by back or forward 4-5-6 times to get one object & back again to use it It was made to appear a long game but if you cut it down to the actual story it would maybe 2 hours tops including the bonus,not worth even SE price so sure not worthy of CE price,the few puzzles have all been played...
Summary: This was not it. I'm sorry. If I would be new onto this kind of games I would probably liked it more. But as a veteran gamer ... :( The theme and the going through have many bits and bobs from other games and I quite had enough of the darkness surrounding the HO games lately. Technically is mostly well put with what would expect from dark-gloomy graphics and reasonable good sounds except from the uninspired buzz like from the HO scenes.
