Name: Manor Memoirs Collector's Edition
Release Date: 24 August 2014
Scarlett is a successful writer; even so, she has lost the inspiration for her new writing. She decided to move into a new manor in the hope to seek ideas and inspirations; unfortunately, the place appears run down and requires some help. Help Scarlett organize a garage sale, earn money and decorate the manor. The only thing we found different in this game compared to other Playrix’s games is the ‘Manor’ instead of a farm, an aquarium or a garden. Nonetheless, it is not like we have not fixed up a house before in Gardenscapes: Mansion Makeover.
Per Playrix’s standards, the visuals and audio in Manor Memoirs are as great as ever. The graphics are very clean and colorful while the music is lively and relaxing; definitely the perfect game to sit down and enjoy with your family. There are voice overs in the cutscenes; however, the game mostly develops through silent dialogues.
The main idea of the game is to earn as much money from playing the hidden object scenes, one after another and choose decorations for your house. Occasionally, there are special tasks which usually prompt up slightly more creative hidden object scenes or simple puzzles.
Usually Playrix’s games are very long, not to mention that those were released as Standard Editions on Big Fish Games. As a Collector’s Edition, Manor Memoirs disappoints. The length of the game is much shorter compared to others of its kind; the bonuses are also not that worthy, considering a bunch of pointless hidden object scenes and other gallery items.
All in all, Manor Memoirs is just another endless objects-finding game that is far too similar to the ones released before.
