Name: Punished Talents: Stolen Awards Collector's Edition
Release Date: 6 March 2016
Developer: Blam! Games

It has been a while since the last project from Blam! Games, and it seems like the developer has lost its charm a little bit. The strongest aspect of Punished Talents: Stolen Awards is undoubtedly its visuals. The graphics are sharp and well-colored, with elegant artwork and realistic shades and tones. The animations can be a little static at time, but this is only a minor issue. What is more concerning are the background soundtracks. Punished Talents: Stolen Awards is a pretty loud game, that is, there is music playing in the background at every point in the game. On top of that, we found the background music to be incredibly repetitive and distracting – we ended up turning the volume all the way down.

From reading the plot alone, we know that we are in for another cliché Hidden Object Adventure game. The concept of being trapped inside a mansion with a serial murderer on the loose is definitely not unique, although we must admit that it is still exciting enough to hold our attention for the most part of the game. Nonetheless, Punished Talents: Stolen Awards is a very predictable game. The adventure part feels like it was made only for beginners, the hidden object scenes are flat-out standard and the puzzles seriously lack challenge.

The Collector’s Edition’s bonus features, which cannot be viewed until you finish the game, are wallpapers, concept art, a strategy guide, cutscenes, achievements, collectibles and replayable mini-games. The bonus chapter is fairly solid and is about an hour long, this adds up to the total length of around four and a half hours.

Apart from the stellar visuals, there is basically nothing else worth praising in Punished Talents: Stolen Awards. The game is a well-made game for beginners since its uninspiring and simple gameplay will probably turn more advanced players off.
