Dark Lore Mysteries: The Hunt for Truth

[Post New]by bfgFlounder on Feb 2, 13 12:29 AM
A violent murder has awoken a small town with a troubled past. A town where evil was part of their history and fear was in their daily lives. They thought that chapter was over with. Investigate the murders and track down the killer before evil engulfs the town in Dark Lore Mysteries: The Hunt for Truth.

Morning, all

I remember beta testing this game. I didn't like it then, and I don't like it now. Crude graphics, junk pile HOS, of which there are many, and awkward gameplay. Map is included, but can't be used to jump.

Didn't have any technical problems though.

I have seen better efforts from this developer (Go gi i) but this one is not too bad. A lot of HO scenes though, a little bit of adventure. Sometimes the HO scenes seemed to be one after another after another! Rather junkpile and quite dark, had to use a hint once or twice which I rarely do. I thought vampire type stories were a thing of the past but apparently not! I am concerned about the length - I played 40 minutes of the demo and according to the walkthrough I am half-way through the game (I am at the castle gates)! I had no technical problems and my demo download was fairly fast (for me), just hesitating because of the length and the fact that the game is really not that challenging, at least so far. Think I will wait for this one to be offered as a DD............only because it is so short! As always, try for yourself, maybe I played faster than normal for me...........

I feel kind of bad for once leading developers that seem to have fallen behind the rest.

None of the screenshots had an HO scene, so I thought this would be a nice little adventure game. Instead it seems to be the opposite. I just can't take too many HO scenes, no buy for me. If it's full of HOs, put up an HO scene for one of the screenshots

Finished the demo in 33 minutes. According to WT that's half the game!!!
The graphics on this game really didn't impress me at all. Some of the HOG scenes were so dark you could barely make out what you were looking at.
I DO love HOGS but this was even a bit much for me. One at every corner....and then some.

I do have a bunch of Gogii games but this dev can do way better!!!!!

DARK lore is right. The screen shots are so dark that I won't even demo this game.

All I had to read was that it was junk pile "hos" laden so it is an automatic no buy for me.

I just now finished the game. I very much enjoyed it. I did not think it was too dark. I am not young anymore and have eye problems. I did not have too many problems finding the items. Sometimes I did have to use a hint. Some objects are blended in with the scene. I like to read everybodies reviews, but always demo a game myself.

Just am not enjoying this game at all. Scenes are too dark and the whole thing seems to be amateurish. Add to that the play is rather jerky and it is a no buy for me.

Hmmmmm.....too many Hidden Objects in a Hidden Object game? Well, to each his own, but that's what I play; H0 games. I like them and so I'll keep buying them. If I want Adventure games, I'll look for that particular genre, but to knock a H0 game for being one is a little strange. Kind of like buying an apple and expecting it to taste like an orange! But like I said, to each his own.

I'm not trying to be contrary but from the description it sounds like it should be an adventure game to me. I guess I missed where it is written that this game is a hidden object game. I don't see that listed anywhere, I must be blind. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Good try? This dev has been around for quite a while. Their early games were terrific -- difficult tasks, HO searches were not junk pile, challenging puzzles, gorgeous artwork. I think they've stopped trying so hard. Sad.

You're not wrong re. the description or the screenshots. But the game's main category is Hidden Object game: Look on the game DL page above the game description -- in this case above the banner. As far as I remember: If you look on the game DL page at the bottom right, the "More...games" lists all (other) categories, where BFG puts a game in. In this case, also Puzzle and Adventure.

It's the first line I look at when coming from the main PC game page, even before the screenshots, for not getting my hopes up too high.

The game is definitely heavily ladened with HO scenes but have played others that had just as much. I didn't find the game overly dark or the objects impossible to find. The background in each room is very detailed which lends itself to an artsy appearance but a bit cluttered as well. I thought the voice overs were very well done and all of the conversing exceptionally well done. Some of the puzzles are unique and fun to solve. All in all not a bad game but may not be for everyone. I have a few coupons itching to be used so I gave this game a try and am enjoying it.

Ok thanks for that clarification. I never noticed that either. LOL.
