Name: Fear for Sale: The 13 Keys Collector's Edition
Release Date: 24 October 2014
Developer: Elefun Games
The storyline is the strongest aspect of The 13 Keys; it is filled with exciting twists, captivating sequences and memorable characters. Yes, The 13 Keys is packed with ghosts, ghouls, the death and spirits - the game is not as spooky as the developers might have hoped it would be. The reason for this might be the quirkiness and humor in the dialogues, which might have drawn out the creepy factor a little bit. Also, we found the collectibles to be slightly distracting; some players might find them fun to search for, but we found them to be completely random, out of place and add no value whatsoever to the gameplay.
Another aspect that Elefun Games has expertly done with The 13 Keys is the presentation. The Fear For Sale series is definitely already known for its stunning graphics; well, the visuals in The 13 Keys are the best yet. The graphics still contain the slim fuzziness as found in every other game from Elefun, but the vibrant colors and beautiful artwork make up for that. In addition, the soundtracks are phenomenal - they are orchestral and pretty epic at times.
Gameplay wise, Fear for Sale: The 13 Keys plays just like any other Hidden Object Adventure game. Expert players will probably find the game a little too light and easy; regardless of that, they might very well enjoy the game's handful amount of well-crafted puzzles and enjoyable hidden object scenes.
We completed the main game in around 3.5 hours, playing on the easiest difficulty setting. The extra features are more limited than we would have liked, despite the fairly decent 50-minute bonus chapter.
Fear for Sale: The 13 Keys is not the perfect game for this Halloween, but it is a game that well worth its price.
