Dark Arcana: The Carnival reviews and comments

Translated by

Another Hidden Object Game, which surprised me. Slowly, I like this Kind (but just because so much P & C and Puzzles are included.) Story is very cool, unfortunately already a bit transparent at the Beginning, and the Characters could also be more lively, yet made awesome! -With the Bonus episode, the whole thing gets another damn good Twist and Completeness. Which was also new to the great Puzzle elements that you get a Monkey (Miles) who helps to solve the Puzzles (for example, in which he brings things where you can't get.) The Setting is great, Game Mechanics slightly stronger than most Hidden Object Or Artifex Mundi games. Absolute Buy recommendation (especially in Bundle for £2.49to and 12 Games:D-for €7.99am I'd wait for a Sale or Bundle, something is a lot)

Foreword: In this brand new Hidden Object and Adventure game, You'll take on the Role of a young Commissioner to clear up the Disappearance of a young Mother on the Grounds of a Circus. Little by little you find out that there is much more to the young Woman's Disappearance than a normal Reinvention. Dark Forces have set themselves the Goal of liberating the ultimate Evil from a parallel Mirror World. Can You Prevent it and save the World? Pro: + mysterious and chilling Places to discover again + lots of Hidden Object Scenes and tricky Mini-games + detailed Graphics + Three different levels of Difficulty, such as Beginners or Experts + Usual many extras that play through after playing through Let Kontra unlock:-short Playing Time of about 5-6 Hours of Conclusion: As usual by Artifex-Mundo, again a Hidden Title that has simply succeeded all round. Neat Puzzles, a good Psycho-Story and detailed Graphics motivate you to play through the Game in one Go.

Having almost tormented myself through Time Myteries, I'd have little Desire for Hidden Object Games. Then have installed this Game for some Time afterwards. And I have to say: It's thrilled! That starts in the Main Screen. Pay Attention to the Horse when it flashes. The Game itself plays in a fairly "creepy Setting." For this purpose, the appropriate Music is played in the Background. If Fairs have always been suspicious, you will get their Money's worth here;-). Dark Arcana plays itself quite catchy. Most of The time you don't have to puzzle about what you could do now. This also applies to the Mini-games. The Achievements are also very easy to reach. Overall, a pretty round Game for In Between. On the Negative side, I would like to point out that the German Translation is bumpy in terms of Multiple Meaning. But That does not lead to Difficulties. In English, however, one enters the "Rectangle" in German. Or in another Case, "Cage" became a "Birdcage." In the Hidden Object Plays themselves, only "Gun" was translated as "pistole," instead of "rifle." Last But not Least, as with other Games, Hidden Object Scenes are often used twice. Here, however, I had to collect (sometimes) some Items again, which I once collected.
