Chronicles of Elementals released as Elementals: The Magic Key (IHOG)

[Post New]by TopazMystique on Oct 9, 09 2:49 AM
For those of you who beta tested Chronicles of Elementals: The Day of Surprises, Playrix has released it as Elementals: The Magic Key. Although they say it's an exclusive and it's one of the first to be developed by other than Playrix, I'm hoping it won't be long before has it since usually gets their games pretty quickly (a week or 2?).

For those of you who didn't beta test, it's a cute game. Great graphics and interesting story. It is definitely on my BUY list. Only thing I really didn't like was the battle board game. I just played to get thru it. Never won after first couple of games but losing didn't stop the game from progressing. Hope they didn't change that in the final version.

Awesome game and hope that adventure/hog fans will at least try it when it gets to !

Hope you like it, Eisteepfirsich. I played the whole game when I beta tested. Very addictive; just couldn't stop. Wanted to find out what was going to happen next!

EDIT: Just in case anyone is wondering, I played for hours and hours when beta testing; not limited to one hour.

Downloaded the demo at Playrix and the game wouldn't run for me. I'll wait to see if gets it and hopefully have a more successful download then if they do. The graphics looked wonderful and the description sounded good. Fingers crossed.

This is really weird. When I beta-tested this game it downloaded and ran without a glitch. Seems Playrix is having problems now that the game is finalized. I also was not able to play the demo. Am in contact with them and hoping to have a resolution soon but I've downloaded 2 additional demos and both had problems. Waiting on a 3rd demo. Hope they get if fixed soon!

I had no trouble with playing the demo. Good game. Found some bits of the demo very not intuitive but the rest was clever and the story was quite interesting.

I really don't like pixel hunting for parts of things and, if I remember correctly, this has some of that.

I had trouble with the demo too. The game kept ending in the first scene. I just deleted it. If I have that much trouble at the beginning of a game, it won't be fun.

site seems ok today phatkat, loaded fine watched the video and downloading game now, at least i THINK i am, lol, slooooow download mine usually superfast, around a minute for this size but this one has been almost 5 mins and only half done

so we'll see, might be getting bad download anyway like some others have gotten

ETA: got it played about 40 mins, not my thing, rest of game is ok but not liking the board game battles, think i've had about 3 of em? if that means one every 10 mins can't be bothered, yep you can skip them, but it that's half the game, why bother? *shrug*

I tried downloading the trial version twice and got a white screen I am on XP perhaps it is only meant for vista I have bought and downloaded a lot of games but never had this trouble before anyone else had the problem
