ABOUT THE GAME:
Your character is Vera; a well educated woman who's fiancé is missing. The wedding is in 2 days! Vera goes on a "Back-to-the-Future" search to find her missing fiancé. Of course, it wouldn't be a game without many obstacles, challenges and surprises. Vera also has some short but entertaining history lessons. Find out if Vera finds her fiancé, Tom in time for the wedding.
This game delivers on every aspect. I generally am not drawn to these types of games. I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall during the development of this game. I could just imagine the "brain-storming" conversations that ensued. Delve into the game and see what I mean!
GENERAL INFORMATIONS AND TIPS:
- You can fast click through the story if you don't want to listen to the story; or you read faster than the story narration. I found the story entertaining and somewhat educational. Stories are generally my least favorite part of a game.
- There are unlimited hints in this game. The hints however do take time to recharge.
- There are no time limits in this game.
- The game is rather lengthy. There are 23 chapters with 1-6 tasks (levels) per chapter. Don't let the number of tasks fool you. A chapter with 1 task can take as long as chapters with multiple tasks.
- The game saves itself at the end of a chapter while traveling through a vortex. If you exit the game before it saves; you'll have to start at the beginning of the chapter you left.
- You can exit to the main menu and return to the beginning of the task you left.
- If an item "sparkles" when your mouse runs over it, it's usually worth investigating.
- Items in the silhouetted task bars are not always in the same position in the scene.
- Many items can't be located until previous items are found.
- Many actions require a previous action.
- Many tasks have multiple scenes. When the hint button is selected in a scene where no more actions are required; the hint button will only show you the direction in which to go to the next scene. It will not give the location of the item in the next scene.
- You can replay a chapter after the completion of the chapter by going to the main menu and making the chapter selection.
- If an item from your inventory has been used and it's still there. Chances are; you'll have to use it again.
ABOUT THE WALK THROUGH:
I've included screenshots with encircled locations and/or descriptions on most levels/tasks. The levels/tasks without screen shots are due to the randomness of the task. The screen shots are usually at the end of each level description/instructions. Some levels have multiple screen shots. ENJOY!!
