Alchemy Mysteries: Prague Legends - Review

Name: Alchemy Mysteries: Prague Legends
Release Date: 08 September 2012
Developer: JetDogs Studios


 For iPhone and iPod Touch
 HD for iPad

Alchemy Mysteries's main theme is set in Prague, Prague is a beautiful city and the graphics kinda show it. The graphics are strange, scenes look a little weird but they also look nice in their own ways. Unfortunately, they're sometimes very blurry and this is bad in Hidden Object scenes because it makes objects hard to find. Talk about the HOG scenes, they're not cluttered and based on the standard list-type, however, in many scenes you have to use items in your inventory to perform interactions in the scene, we found this kind of fun but can cause a little confusion as well. Music is okay, nothing outstanding. Puzzles are also pretty average, most of them are all that we're very familiar of. For the story, it's not purely new but it has some little twists and turns which make it more interesting. Alchemy Mysteries has quite a lot of major flaws, the navigation is extremely frustrating. Most of the scenes involve side-scrolling, right and left, right and left. Luckily, the developers offer us a 'smooth scrolling' option which we advice you to turn it off because it can very well make you dizzy and can cause some serious sea-sick! It's also very confusing because there're quite a lot of tasks to do in each scene and you often get lost and can't remember where is the scene you wanted to go, there is a map in the game but the interface is pretty bad, it doesn't help much after all. The game is also lack of excitement, it's a very slow-paced one and some might lost their interest very quickly. Despite all the flaws, we actually really like the character's movement and the cut-scenes which are very smooth. Alchemy Mysteries is a strange game, it's surely different from other HOGs in the market but maybe, not in a good way...
