Hope Lake reviews and comments

Translated by

"Hopefully it won't be bad!" Was my first Thought. And unfortunately, it's bad. It starts with the music going to my Bag. TRÄNSÄCKE, ladies and Gentlemen! The Music repeats itself all the time and when I turn it off in the Options, you don't get anything from the Cutscenes with you. As a result, the Atmosphere is lost. Next comes the Hitbox? Sometimes you have to click On areas pixel exactly so that they are even accepted, If you don't know that, you otherwise err around with the right Object for a long Time, even though you could have used it. Many Items have "alternative Use Tick," but you don't really come up with it if you want to look at the Whole thing logically. (Hit Nails in the Ladder Sprouts with a Flint). This Game also has some Translation errors in the Hidden Object Images. You can't recognize many Items in the Hidden Object Images because there's a Kind of Filter in it, which makes searching very difficult. The Mini-games are very simple in Contrast to the Game itself. Sliding Puzzles or Mini-games where you need to connect Pipes will be shown to you immediately as The right Thing to do if you set them correctly. I play in Expert Mode, by the Way, and still I don't feel like I'm. From the Story this Game is certainly interesting and I will also play it by, but for Purchase I do not recommend this Game.

Positive Points:-beautiful, gloomy mood-the Graphics can convince-From the Very Beginning you have Access to a Fast travel system-the Overview Map of the Locations shows where there is still something to be done-no Useless Items that litter the Inventory- Mini Games can be skipped-in normal Mode you can have a Tip about every Minute where you have to go negative Points next:-lack of Background Music; All things running are just a single Song that quickly annoys-Story unfortunately only rudimentary present. Approaches are quite nice, but more not-quite simply overall-really very many "find the Key to unlocking the Lock Here" Puzzles-The Hidden Object Passages were beautifully designed for my Taste, but simply too often necessary. The whole thing quickly becomes tiresome-the End comes too abruptly-some Situations seem too forced, or illogical. Character has a Ladder with him and still has to repair the Knitting ladder to the Treehouse-the Main character unfortunately remains very flat and shows little Emotion on what happens-Small Cutscenes are inserted Again and again, but those are of Worse quality and quite pixelated. What a pity. Verdict: The Game is certainly not a giant Highligt. In any case, I do not mourn the 2.39,-which I paid afterwards, because the Game is quite nice despite the Shortcomings. In the Sale you can strike calmly but shouldn't expect an Epic. For the almost 4 Hours it took me, I felt quite good entertained. In total, the Game gets 5/10 Points from me
