Short But Oh So Sweet

Story: You, your father, and a small crew set off on a dangerous expedition to find a legendary island of magic and wonder. After getting shipwrecked in a storm, you wake up to discover you're alone on an island inhabited by strange creatures and plagued by four deadly curses. You must destroy the curses in order to find your father, and stop the tyrannical witch that is responsible for it all.

Developer: HitPoint Studios
Release Date: Aug 2011?
Extras: Collectibles

This game comes up with few surprises. It is formulaic, using the familiar 3-4 environments where we solve one aspect of the problem, held together by a basic structure. This is also clearly a low budget game; there’s been very little spent on the extras, there are no voiceovers whatsoever, and a few simplistic cutscenes.

But this game is a must have for anyone who prefers more HO over PA. There are heaps of beautifully drawn HOs, clear, not at all cluttered and a pleasure to play. There are only a handful of puzzles, and those easy.

OH, and there are collectible ‘story page pieces’, which go together to make jigsaw puzzles that reveal story. Lots of (skippable) story available.

Arcelia Island may offer little that is new – but its visual appeal, ease of play and soothing environment make it worth the price, for primarily HO fans and for new players.
