Thank you, I appreciate knowing the time frame. I like getting my monies worth when I pay for a game, I like them lasting at least a couple days. I make them take longer and take breaks and play online games in between, but even a 3 hour game, not sure I'd be able to make it last 2 days.

I was just coming to say the same. I felt it was very short for the money spent. It is a good game, but I prefer them longer.

Hi all! As usual, I mostly review on the game and not much on the story, as others do a much better job than I. This addition is set up exactly the same as all the others in this series, as far as game play and such. Very nice animation, with mouth movements and all. Voice overs are well done, and are age, character and setting appropriate. Graphics are well done, very clear and without blurring when moving in or out of cut scenes. Colors are nice and bright without being over powering, even with a bit more orange than usual. Game play was very good, with no problems at all during the demo. The sound FX are really very nice and well done. You mostly hear wind blowing and see the trees and leaves moving in the scenes. SFX are very clear, footsteps, keys unlocking doors, etc. When something is about to happen, the music takes off.

Hops varied, with interactive lists, matching pairs, straight lists and a storybook "fill in the blank" type HOPs. We don't have something different to switch to if we don't care for the HOPs, but these are very nicely done. Puzzles were not difficult, but did have a little challenge to them and some did take me a little time and thought to complete. Hint system is quite helpful and it does transport to longer locations. There is a lot of back tracking, as usual. Didn't even both looking at the jump map.
I did note that some items that we need to pick up in scenes are very small. I found a few quite by accident.

Collectibles are nicely done. We need to find 48 jigsaw pieces, which are fairly large for the most part and easy to see. These can be anywhere. We collect 12 pieces each for 4 puzzles. We also have 26 morphing objects, which all seem to be musical instruments, just different colors and shapes. They are quite large, but be on the lookout for them, as these objects morph quickly. We also have 12 cards. Don't know what they do, but we need to find them. These are quite large, but easily missed, as you don't think about them when picking up something else within the scene.

These games in this series just seem to get better and better. When I beta tested it, I gave it a 4.5 on my beta scale. We seem to have a bit more dialog in this one, which makes for a more fun game. A game has to be exceptional in all aspects to get 5 stars from me. That said, I really got into the story in this one fairly quickly and as usual, the demo left us with a cliffhanger. The game did have enough action and constant movement to keep me interested and I find that I have the need to play this one out and see what is happening and why. I think most all levels of players will find this one interesting, a bit challenging at times and somewhat fun. Yes, I am adding this one to my collection.

As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may not care for this one at all. Thanks for the reviews.

Played the demo and liked it enough to buy the full game but it seems like the demo took me at least 75% through the game. Not yet played the bonus section so can't comment on that!

When Chimeras released their first game of the series, Tune of Revenge, it was an epic game that had an original storyline, and fantastic graphics. The proof is in the BF pudding, and it received rave reviews, averaging 4.7 Stars out of 5! Since then, Chimeras games have been average games with average ratings, The Signs of Prophecy 3.9, Cursed and Forgotten 3.8, Mortal Medicine 3.9. They are likeable games, but not epic games like Tune of Revenge, there's nothing about this game that sets it apart from the others, an easily forgettable game. One thing I've noticed with this series is that the graphics aren't as good as they were in the first and second episodes, but the biggest mistake this series has made, is with the Chimeras themselves. Actually it's with the lack of the Chimeras, Mortal Medicine only mentioned the Chimeras in the entire demo, and Mark of Death is centered around Chimeras Markers! Who cares about a token of death when a flying 3 headed beast could get the job done better, a much more interesting plot don't you think?
Twelve years ago, Thomas was found guilty of murdering two Royal Guards when he stole a Royal Relic. Thomas was executed, and his wife died shortly afterwards after giving birth to their baby. Now, the people involved in the case, are receiving the Chimera Mark of Death token, and one by one are meeting their demise. You're services are requested to solve this suspicious case after the Prosecutor of the case, Victor, received the Marker and perished shortly afterward. The Judge is about to be Judged, when he too receives a Marker, can you find the person responsible in time?
The Hidden Object Scenes aren't really that impressive, but they are varied with Interactive List finds, Uncovering Pairs of items, and i new type that was the most interesting of all of them, Filling in the Blanks by finding objects that fit into the sentence logically.
The Mini Games are plentiful, and easily solved on the first attempt. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo:
1) Use up and down arrows to bend a hairpin to push pins to the red line.
2) Match pulse points dots.
3) Repeat the sequence demonstrated.
4) Untie knots by sliding to end of the rope in correct order.
5) Rotate cylinder segments to create a pattern.
6) Rotate and drag bells along a track to their color coded slots.
7) Rotate disk rings to complete the picture.
8) Swap tiles to create color coded lines that don't cross each other.
9) Swap vertical picture tiles.
10) Shoot 5 targets when the marker is in green zone.
11) Move blocks to clear a path for the gold key block.
12) Flip over two dowels at a time to match identical numbers.
This Collector's Edition has 26 Morphing Objects, 12 Collectible Magic Cards, 48 Hidden Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces to assemble 4 twelve piece Screensavers, 8 Wallpapers 12 Concept Art pictures, 5 Music Soundtracks, a Secret Room, 21 Achievements to earn, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter
