Name: Whispered Secrets: Into the Wind Collector's Edition
Release Date: 05 October 2014
Developer: GrandMa Studios
Whispered Secrets: Into the Wind is the third game in the Whispered Secrets franchise, and it is certainly the best one yet! The storyline in Whispered Secrets: Into the Wind although not extremely unique, it is fairly interesting. As the game progressed, we were drawn more and more into the story - despite it not having any shocking twists or especially exciting moments, the story in this game is being told in an arguably captivating way.
Graphics wise, Whispered Secrets: Into the Wind is a winner. The artwork in Whispered Secrets: Into the Wind resembles those in many of ERS-G's games, which is considerably a positive thing. Most of the scenes in this game are extremely well draw and painted, sharply beautiful with a pleasant lightning. In addition, the soundtracks and sound effects are very effective at keeping things thrilling; and the voice overs are also very nice.
Whispered Secrets: Into the Wind is modest in terms of gameplay and creativity. The gameplay is mostly quiet easy and straightforward; however, there is a number of relatively odd tasks as well. The hidden object scenes are entertaining and can be switched between Match-3 mode, but again, nothing innovative here either. The puzzles and mini-games are not supremely difficult, and they are mostly the basic ones.
Nonetheless, there are three features in Into the Wind that we appreciate. The first one is the Red Panda Helper, we are not usually fond of cutesy animal helpers. Still, we feel like the Red Panda Helper in this game is particularly well drawn and animated; plus, we do not have to decorate its house or dress it up with fancy clothes. Secondly, as usual with games from this developer, there are tons of Collectibles to spot. In this game, there are 168 flames to collect, multiple at each location. The last feature is the magic mirror in which you can use it to communicate directly with the Huntress, even though it plays a minor role, it is definitely a nice addition.
The Collector's Edition is not heavily loaded with features, all of them are the usual gallery extras. The Bonus Chapter took us 45 minutes to complete, and the main game took us just under 4 hours.
Whispered Secrets: Into the Wind is a delightful game with awesome graphics, but it is surely not an exhilarating one. It achieves in providing a couple hours of pure entertainment, or else it is nothing very remarkable.
