Comments for Overworld: Spring of Shadows CE

[Post New]by DragonLadyOz on Jan 22, 12 1:40 AM
Hi there,
Well I have checked the few reviews posted so far for this game and, without in any way insulting the respective reviewers, I am still no better off than I was when Mudrock posted his prediction for this game.
I have also attempted a few searches for more info myself - but was lead to mostly "no-go" sites.
Someone out there must have more info to help us along.
It looks OK by me, but I am an avid fan of newer devs and usually don't have the patience to wait for the SE version of a game - or the monthly limit to DL both the CE Trial and/or the CE version of a game.
The difference between the two versions here is comparatively low, so I suspect that the SG is enabled for the Trial version.
So.....?
Cheers

Hm, almost 2 hours since this game was offered as TGT and very few posts.
If it was bad there would have been losts of "stuff" about this, so I am assuming it is at least worthy and interesting.
Cheers

Good morning or rather good evening to you, DLO.

Well, I better copy my "comments" from the "Reviews" thread into this one, in case one of the mods is on the war path and will delete them. LOL

Hi Grannyq...

No worries. I happen to like easy. LOL If it gets too hard, I get frustrated and stressed, and it becomes like a lot of hard work for me. I just like walking through a game easily and just admiring the graphics and gameplay, while doing tasks here and there.

Just a quick note - there actually IS a map - you just get it after the survey section. It does not allow you to go to specific scenes, but to very different locations, each of which have a number of different scenes. I would say more, but I don't want to spoil it any more than that.

And thank you!


Hi there!

Thanks for popping in. So there is a map?! I don't know where the survey section is, but I will keep my eyes peeled for it. Just bought the game! Just love what I have played so far.

ETA: Thanks for letting me know that the map shows up after the trial version.

Hm Valdy,
I am sorry to say that I still have no more useful information after your two posts here than I did after reading your earlier review.
(House of 1000 Doors??)
I am not having a senior moment.
Cheers

DLO: my suggestion is that you try it yourself and form your own independent opinion.

Hi there jkuci,
Of course this is good advice for all of us here - and I not only adhere to this premise myself, but also advise others to do the same when I have recommended a game in the past.
I was hoping that others would actually have something to comment upon in regard to "anything" about the full game to enlighten all of us rather than post a review based on a trial. Especially in light of the fact that there was very little to be gleaned elsewhere.
Cheers

Just a thought:
It's been a while since we had 2 great CEs in the same week----but this one and Thursday's game are both excellent, completely CE-worthy offerings. Way to go, devs and BF!

IMO yes it is and I bought it after 35 minutes because it is more adventure and not just junkpile hog after junkpile hog .

Don't forget you like adventures too Ozzie but if you buy it on my say so and don't like it you can't do anything to me because we are oceans apart so I know I am quite safe recommending it .

Those 2 comments in this thread weren't so much for you, but those who I copied my response to.

Did you read the many positive reviews in the "Reviews" thread? And did you play the trial version? That should make up your mind whether you like the game or not.
Also, do you like Boomzap games to begin with?

This is not a HOG, but more of an Adventure/Puzzle game.

Hope this helps.

Well, I'm a absolute fan of this developer and in this game they are debuting a new play mode - hardcore - one with NO hints!!!

They are both great games----I shudder to think how costly this could get if they did this twice every week! LOL

LOL It would be nice if these fantastic CEs would be distributed more evenly. Say one a week?

It will be hard resisting the temptation to buy this game as a CE. I may give up the effort. I didn't finish the first chapter before my 60 minutes were up, so it looks like a good long game. I love this developer and the only problem I've had so far is searching for (Possible spoiler) SPIDERS! Ick. Anyway, the colors are lovely, the music soft and nice for the background. No voices, but I didn't mind that. Oh...what to do...what to do.

I can't believe I didn't even notice this----another positive.
And this dev has jumped to the top of my favorite dev list along with Blue Tea.
Want to guess which one fell out?

I agree that it's probably a very lengthy game----the SG shows over 160 pages including the bonus game. But then I'm a VERY slow player.

One per week would be great, or maybe two (for $9.99 maybe----like that'll happen)LOL
