Modern Tales: Age Of Invention reviews and comments

I Could say that this time the Artifex did center, but this time something like this can wait. Why? The game crashes in the final and I do not know how to fix

Beautifully drawn Hidden Object Game, exciting Story, well-done Game so overall. Only my Character's Spokeswoman comes a little ... Well, let's say ... "Low-emotion" over.

Simple animated, but still a great Atmosphere is created, which with beautiful Music takes the player's/Into another Era. The Story seems a little jagged together, but is gripping and makes for a Chuckle here and there. There can be no Talk of Difficulty of Puzzles as an Adult, you're through in a matter Of hours. For Children 10 and older, however, it is highly recommended. It is shot a little, but there is no forced Violence or Deaths.

No Idea why here most Negative Tuning, that Game has become good and has tied me up to the end the only thing You can fault that there are some small Translation errors e.g. means bucket spoon or Crosshairs is a Wheel but in the Game you come despite the Misunderstanding quickly about what is meant, so that's why the Game is no worse. Even the Graphics and the whole Atmosphere in the Game was great. The different Places were nicely drawn, think by Hand, looked like this anyway, but I like it. The last Section in the Snow reminded me a bit of the Setting of Enigmatis 3. The Mini-games are unfortunately the same again as in almost every Artifex Game the only thing I didn't know is where you had to put the Locomotives together properly, not very hard but sometimes something else. Habs played on Expert, unfortunately I have probably forgotten to collect 2 Atomic signs somewhere, will play through it again in the Quick Pass because I would like to have all The achievements. I would also buy the Game outside the Sale, even if it would cost £9.99. If it played in Beta at That time, I Recommend it further because it is good and has a nice Game atmosphere. Does it all fit together:)
