A mysterious atmosphere almost becomes a ubiquitous keynote for hidden object puzzle adventure games. In the newly released Echoes of the Past: The Citadels of Time HD by Big Fish Games, this is no exception.
Echoes of the Past takes you into the ancient medieval castle of the royal family in Orion cursed by an avenging witch. The witch disturbed the time flow and locked all in eternity by breaking the grand clock and hiding pieces obscurely in the castle. To save the royal family and return home, you need to find all scattered pieces, fix the shattered eras and lift the curse.
To fulfill the mission, you will explore the multiple rooms of the castle, gathering the various clues and tools. Each scene has several glittering areas you can look into and will enter different puzzles. Pick up a scepter that may opens a secret room when you place it on the right location, search for tools that can disable the alarm of the glass shield, or spot a clock piece in a water bucket deep down in a well – how can you roll it up?
As you play, you will also enter a hidden object scene from time to time, which offers you the chance to collect useful objects key to solve some puzzles. The hidden object game plays conventionally in the laundry list style. What spice the search hunt up are the red-color items. Instead of finding them directly on the scene, you have to take an extra step to get them. Take the herbal powder for example. You need to find the herbal plants first and then place and pound them down in the mortar to get the powder. And looking for fangs? You need to tap the wolf head hung on the wall to open its mouth and get them.
Echoes of the Past: The Citadels of Time HD also prepares tons of simple mini-puzzles in the middle of the object search such as connecting the pipe and restoring a fresco. By completing mini-games you can get further clues or items or unlock new playable areas. During the journey, you may find yourself clueless at times. When you do, you can turn to your magical mirror for hints.
Echoes of the Past offers a free trial version for hours of fun. But you need to purchase the full version to continue the journey. [DOWNLOAD]
