The Sea of Lies series has found its way back to the sea in this fourth installment, Tide of Treachery. You have been sent to investigate a series of ship disappearances around the coast of St. Margaret Island. Is it because of the rumored Sea Ripper, or is is something else darker?
Eipix continues to deliver us Hidden Object Adventure games with great stroylines. Although the missing ship concept has surely been done before countless times, Tide of Treachery delivers it in such way that is intriguing and very exciting.
The captivating story alone would not make Tide of Treachery a great game. The game also featured some stunning visuals, detailed and gorgeous artwork and appealing special effects. Furthermore, the soundtracks are also very pleasant – a little bit orchestral, which suits the game well.
On the gameplay side, however, Tide of Treachery might not be as impressive. The game has you perform some tiresome tasks, some are even illogical – there is absolutely nothing new that we have not seen before in the adventure component of the game. The hidden object scenes are not revolutionary either, but at least they are pretty entertaining and smartly-crafted. The puzzles come in a variety of formats, ranging from super easy to somewhat difficult. The majority of them are quite creative and fit in seamlessly with the plot and the theme of the game.
Sea of Lies: Tide of Treachery took us roughly 4 hours to complete the main game, and another hour to finish the bonus chapter. As for the Collector’s Edition content, it lives up to Eipix’s high standard and offers a satisfying range of items.
