Name: Royal Detective: Legend Of The Golem Collector's Edition
Release Date: 5 February 2016
Developer: Elephant Games

Big and scary creatures are terrorizing the town! How many times have we come across this type of stroyline in the HOPA genre? Normally, it is acceptable if the developer added some fun twist to the plot to keep things fresh and interesting. Unfortunately, that is not the case with Legend Of The Golem - the storyline is dry and boring, and the mundane backstory definitely doesn't help.

Still, Legend Of The Golem impresses when it comes to the production. The visuals are up to the standard expected from Elephant Games; vibrant graphics, lifelike animations and terrific special effects. Audio wise, the soundtracks are pleasant most of the time, but there are times when they can get overly-dramatic. The voice-overs are decent and are appropriate for each character.

Legend Of The Golem does not really offer anything groundbreaking, The game focuses on the adventure part, which is pretty straightforward and predictable. However, the hidden object scenes and the puzzles are more challenging. The hidden object scenes come in a variety of formats, some of which are very creative. The puzzles are not exactly unique, but they contain some smart twists and the level of difficulty is just right for our tastes. Moreover, the game comes with a little Golem helper - we found him to be annoying at times.

We finished the main game of Royal Detective: Legend Of The Golem in around four hours, which is the standard length for HOPA games. The bonus chapter, which comes with the Collector's Edition, added another hour to the total. Other extras include wallpapers, screensavers, soundtracks, achievements, collectibles, a strategy guide, replayable hidden object scenes and replayable puzzles.

Overall, despite the dull storyline and the uninspiring gameplay, Royal Detective: Legend Of The Golem is actually quite an enjoyable game. It surely didn't do anything revolutionary, but it didn't do anything criminally wrong either.
