Name: Dangerous Games: Prisoners of Destiny Collector's Edition
Release Date: 03 January 2014
Developer: Blam! Games
This latest HOPA game from Blam! Games is not just 'game', it is a game within game. The plot is certainly very unique, you not just explore a parallel world this time, but a parallel game world in which you need to win to survive. You be collecting Power Cards, each with different ability to help you on your journey as well as Teleport Cards which are needed to move on to the next level. Dangerous Games has this superbly entertaining and amusing plot which always keeps the game feels fresh, in fact, it is extremely captivating as well.
The visuals are professionally done in this game, all of the scenes are beautifully painted with gorgeous colors. Some might think they are too cartoony, but they are still undeniably great-looking. The characters are varied from humans, animals to fantasy creatures; each is provided with good-quality voice and well-designed look. The music is melodic and fun to listen to, they are not distracting in any ways and are not repetitive.
Despite its imaginative story, the gameplay remains pretty simple. It is a little too heavy on Hidden Object scenes we would say, they are nice though, but some variations and maybe a little more focus on the adventure side would be appreciated. The puzzles are not really buzz-worthy but still, they are challenging and fun.
Dangerous Games might be too easy for advanced players as the game is quite linear but the game length is satisfying. The Bonus Chapter is really great with pretty standard length. Achivements, Collectibles and Replayable-Puzzles are included in the Extras section along with the usual Gallery items and a Strategy Guide.
Dangerous Games: Prisoners of Destiny is a fantastic game to start 2014 with, we totally fell in love with the brand new storyline and the whole concept of the game. It is not very challenging, but with gorgeous graphics, lovely concept and solid production - it is splendidly entertaining nonetheless.
