Vampire Saga Pandora's Box
Another hidden object adventure game arrives on the PC (not that
we're complaining) which has the
gamer hunting for clues in order to solve the mystery of the ghost
Probably one of the better hidden object adventure game stories,
Vampire Saga Pandora’s Box is an interesting premise as the
story is being retold by Tyler Ward, the grandson of Matthew Ward who is
the main protagonist of this tale.
It begins with Matthew Ward finding
himself stranded in a port and in order to get home, he sneaks himself
onto the ship called Pandora. Although he successfully makes it aboard
the Pandora, when he wakes, he soon finds himself to be the only person on the
ship and to compound the situation, he is surrounded by strange dark
visions. Your goal is simple, help Matthew Ward get off this mysterious
ship before he ends up as one of the victims.
With elements of horror and even Lovecraft, Vampire Saga Pandora's box
is a fun adventure game that even has a few scares along the way and
shocks as gamers embark on a very left out of centre hidden object
a tried and true premise, Vampire Saga Pandora’s Box is a classic point
and click adventure game that has the player attempting to find certain
objects in the gaming environment to assist with our character's dilemma.
Once you find an item, it goes into
your inventory that can be used on
the current screen that you are investigating or for a clue later on.
Thankfully the interface is quite self explanatory and if you should get
stuck in the game, there is a hint system that can assist you to move
The hint system reminds of those puzzle games like Bejewelled which
flash around the next gem or for this game, the object but thankfully its
quite subtle and not too in your face. You still need to be vigilant
when you use them and if you use the hint system too much, you'll need to
wait for it to be recharged but this is not really an issue. As
this is a casual game, the difficulty of the title is probably around
midrange but with the hint system, it allows for less experienced gamers
to enjoy the title.
the game does shine is through the story which gets more intricate and
really draws you into this interactive world. To compliment the story
and give the player a break, there are some cutscenes to help you
progress and of course the almost painted like graphics which only adds
to the atmosphere. The musical score of Vampire Saga Pandora’s Box
perfectly suits the premise, especially in relation to the mystery and
the suspense of the story.
end of the day, what better way to unwind then sitting back and playing
Vampire Saga Pandora’s Box which although is quite relaxing, gives you a
good balance between challenges and suspense.
conclusion Vampire Saga Pandora's Box, it goes beyond most hidden object
games, thanks to the story which is very well written and contains enough twists and turns
to pay homage to mystery horror novels. The only downside which is the common theme of
these games is that you’ll finish this game in under ten hours, more if
you’re a veteran. Of course, the replay value is also gone but hey...
for the price, you really can't complain.
