Scarab Tales reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Interrodent Friendly beetle maze Puzzle game in Orient look. Story Scarab Tales has no Story and it doesn't need to. In each Level, you have to transport one or more Bugs from a Starting Point to The destination Point. If the Beetles reach the Finish, you have reached the Level. If you Want the maximum Score, you can only give a limited Number of "Commands" to reach the Goal. Scope There is a short Tutorial and 100 Levels. Scarab Tales also has a level editor that the Scarab Tales Players have (currently) built another 500 Levels with. If you want to solve Scarab Tales with maximum Score, it takes about 10 Hours to do so. Achievement Collectors will have to expect significantly more Playing Time. So Gameplay On every Playing field, Bugs have to run from A to B. The Player can only give two Commands at a time: Start or Stop. But if you can only say Start and Stop, where's the Problem? The Problem is that the Crabblers would never find their Way to the Destination if you didn't block the Path through other Bugs or Obstacles in such a way that they reach their Destination after all. First of all, all the Bugs always make the Same thing: They are just running out. Then they Meet a moving Obstacle at some point, push it in front of them. If they Encounter an immovable Obstacle, then the Bugs suddenly differ in their Reaction: Green Bugs always do right-hand Turns and red Bugs always do Left-hand Turns, unless the Path is also blocked, then the Bugs try the other one Direction out. Golden Beetles do what they want. The Game principle is very simple and the Costlexity of the Labyrinths is also limited. Scarab Tales is well suited for puzzle beginners. However, If you always want to reach the maximum Score, you can also look forward to one or the other really challenging Level. Graphic and Design The Design is consistently Egyptian and makes a warm and sympathetic Impression. The Music is somewhat repetitive but good to bear. Criticism In one of the four Level Areas, golden Beetles occur more And more, the Direction of movement of which is no longer specified. They just do what they want. I wouldn't have needed that Puzzle element. For my Taste, many of these Levels have lost Puddle appeal. Too bad actually, because all the other Elements of this Game I like very much. Scarab Tales looks and plays like a Mobile game. No Wonder, because the Czech Company Playito also only has mobile Games in the Program. Mobile phone Versions are significantly cheaper than the Steam Version and sometimes even for nothing (if the download offer I found was legal). There are no Steam cards for Scarab Tales, so there is no Badge, no Smiley And no Profile Background. Most Players, however, are unlikely to care. Verdict Scarab Tales hasn't reinvented the Wheel, but puts tried-and-tested Ideas in The spotlight. The Game is entry-level friendly, looks appealing, works flawlessly, offers ample content and is ridiculously cheap in the Sale (under €1s'. Nice Knob game for in between, Thumbs up.
