Developer: Alawar Entertainment/ILving Studio

Love Alchemy starts off with an anticipating story, it sounds promising and of course, interesting. However, as the game develops, we feel like the story is being dragged out for too long - hard to follow and it gets boring after a while.

The gameplay in Love Alchemy is very straightforward, and old-dated some might say. It feels like the game is being dug out from the piles from the early age of HOPA. Everything is super simple, from HOG scenes to puzzles. There is an interactive map, but there no voice overs, no any other features and set this game apart from the others in the genre. The game is focused on the adventure side than the Hidden Object side, puzzles are very few and far between - they are not complex and are not original.

Moreover, despite the fact that there are up to seven portraits to investigate, the time spent inside each portrait is far too short. As a result, the overall game length is around 2 hour short for advanced players and can be slightly longer for slower players.

Nonetheless, Love Alchemy is visually impressive. The graphics are extremely well drawn, colors are nicely painted - even though they are not outstanding, they are beautiful to the eye. The music is okay, fits the game well.

Love Alchemy: A Heart In Winter is not bad as a standalone game, it is just not really memorable or exciting. Apart from the great graphics, the story is cheesy and the gameplay is ordinary.
