New York Mysteries: The Lantern of Souls reviews and comments

Anywhere SEXISMUS!! Disgusting!! Constantly descending Images of women, such as Sex Objects, a Piece OF FLEISCH, fully lubricated like Barbie dolls and in unnatural Postures, totally VERBIFIED, totally FAKE, exaggerated and clichéd, pure SEXISMUS. Imisophobic SCHANDE, this Game and the others just as far down to the mafia game are ALL SEXISTISCH. Women are always depicted as a Piece of Meat, reduced to the Body, so disgustingly obedient and DISCRIMINATORY, an un-human Or UNTERMENSCHLICHE consideration of Women, and NOT FRAUEN. Men were NOT SHOWN ONLY MAL SEXUELL, not once reduced to their Bodies, NEVER. Only Women ever. Typical media sexism. Sovias should be banned. And in the Pictures in the Preview you see NOTHING of it and I also paid GELD FOR THIS SEXISTISCHE SCH * * *!! I'm going to make the Games bad everywhere!!!!! Because that must not be something like that, only SEXISTEN regard women in this clichéd Role model as SEXOBJEKT!! Only SCHLAMPEN show up to everyone sexuell-making sexual for everyone. Everywhere, Women are pictured as Sluts, totally RESPEKTLOS. THE SEXISTISCHSTEN SPIELE, THE I SEIT LANGEM FIRTRAGEN MUSSTE. Absolute FRAUENFEINDLICHKEIT. Good People don't support Sexism. Tits, Asses, From Men everywhere? TZ you can NEVER see WHAT SEXUELLES, they only have something below. But this will NOT be MAL DRAUF ON MERKSAM GEMACHT, e.g. Men in skintight Panties, so that you can see the PENISFORM or GRÖßE. no... Only Women are reduced to Sexual at All times. Men are shown in Pants-Women, on the other hand, in HÖSCHEN-PURE SEXISMUS!!! Today in the sick World unfortunately "normal"-social NORMEN, which do not question the Sheep. Sad World!

What happens when the soul lantern is stolen ...:) ... And the Sensenmann can no longer bring the Souls of the Deceased Into the Realm of the Dead? They wander around as The Undead ... Whoever is behind it and why this is so, we have to figure it out as-once again stunningly good-looking – Laura James In New York in The late 1950s as An Investigator of a secret organization. Our Comrades-in-arms Will and Dr. Bishop are of course also part of the ... This is the third Part of the great Series of Five BN games-Prior Knowledge is not required, because each Part contains its own Story! FAKTEN: The Length of the 7-chapter main Game is neat and ends. We play the bonus chapter from Will's Point of View. We can choose from 3 Levels of difficulty – with the first two modifiable. The Tip shows the Direction we should take or opens a Portal. The transport map is very useful here, as the different Locations Are often very far apart! If you Go all "on Foot," this extends the Game a lot! The Map also shows if we have found all The Collectibles. To do this, we have a Journal that records everything Important And a List of Tasks. The WIMMELBILDER are all the same in the Presentation – but very well designed and never boring: We look for Objects in a Room for Outlines and use them again appropriately. This is all done very interactively and with built-in small Mini-games Until we finally get the Item for inventory! The MINISPIEL offer is mostly light and rarely medium in the Solution. The given symbol is compiled from partial Symbols. Keybears are swapped until they are appropriate. Different Picture Frames are swapped until they are in their proper Place. A Number code is found out. 3 different Patterns with Recesses are used to remove all Tiles. One Tile is directed by Arrow to push another, past obstacles to the Finish. A Picture is painted according to Specifications and Much More. EXTRAS: 35 Morphs, 18 Facts Maps of New York, a Collection that includes 8 Statues, 9 silver Apples, 9 Coats of arms and 9 Note keys – can be collected (also retrospectively). In addition, 18 replayable Mini-games, Wallpapers, concept art, Music, videos, 5 Puzzles (swap picture Tiles until an Image is created) and the Solution Book. An all-round successful collector's edition! Great Story, very good Graphics and (even for Beginners) appealing Tasks!
