Would you like to enter a thrilling Pirates world where danger lurks in every corner?
You are a museum owner pursuing an undead pirate who kidnapped your daughter. You quickly realize that the villain is entangled in a tragic, centuries-old love story, and wants to resurrect his mistress with the girl’s life force. You feel sorry for the pirate, but you have to stop him before it is too late for your daughter…
You will leave the modern museum quickly, and find your way to rundown pirate settings, all of them three centuries old. Since the time of the golden age of piracy, the locations have become neglected, deserted and overgrown with plants. Full moon, bones laying on the ground, and a skull-shaped rock add to the dark atmosphere of the mysterious island.
What tragic events took place on the island before your arrival? What evil powers can make an old, rotting ship sail? Is the horrifying, undead pirate really as evil as he seems?
You will find answers to these questions during your trip through the ghost ship haunting the seas of the Caribbean, the grim Skull Island where pirates’ bones cover the ground, a ruined fortress ridden by cannonballs and catacombs stretching below the island’s surface. Are you strong enough to save your daughter? Will you dare to lift the curse?

Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart reviews and comments

Translated by

Of all The Artifex Mundi Games, this is probably the one with the most mistranslated Words. How to find a Pik Ace When you're actually looking for a Pick Axe? Or Brush and Brush? Triangle and Triangle? Sextant and Compass? Whistle and Cigarette? I could go on like this forever ... From time to time, as in the other Parts, this is concealed, but here it accumulates enormously!

Product received for free "Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart" was my Entry Into the Genre of Hidden Object Games (HOG). Above all, the hand-drawn scenes, environments and individual Areas, crammed with details, Have afforded me with their little Puzzles, Hidden Obmands or smaller Tasks. The Whole thing is accompanied by quiet and beautiful subdued Music and individual Cutscenes, which (here) are definitely in need of getting used to. One should realize, however, that one was not dealing with a tripple A, but a (then) niche title and an Indie studio, even if Artifex Mundi has developed considerably and the Name for Quality of the Games in this Genre Is. So it is not surprising that I quickly acquired the two Sequels of the Series As well as numerous other Titles of the House Artifex Mundi, as I was aware of the Quality and the Fun And attention to Detail that is evident in the individual Scenes of the Games. Convinced, simply convinced. Anyone looking for a game in Between, simply something completely different or quiet, I can fully recommend this Game or Games from Artifex Mundi.

Should I recommend this Game? Who may like Hidden Object Games AND Error tolerant, who will also find what You are looking for by thinking Or simply Trying with Hidden Object images despite blatant Mistranslations (Compasses = Stinging circle, Landing bridge = Boiler, pipe = cigarette tip, Triangle = Triangular Lineal, etc.) At least I wouldn't advise that to buy this Game in the Supersoner offer. In my opinion, such gross False Translations are not worth the Normal Price. In some Cases, the Pictures and Scenes are really beautifully done. I find the "Story" a bit questionable, but you just have to hide the Questionability. What is more Disturbing is that if you don't stick to the well-thought-out path 100ig, you get some "oblique tips" (very free, something like "you have to find x," but you have found x long ago and in the Inventory), others can do this better. Also that you can't "teleport" yourself by Card somewhere else is sometimes slightly annoying, sometimes you have to walk back and forth all the Time, but that's limited, the Game environment is not that extensive. I recommend the Game to Fans if it's in The Supersoner offer. "Thumbs up," because at least the Attempt was made to transfer it reasonably well into German.
