Mind Snares opened up showing a normal day of a simple woman, but things turned serious quickly as an evil laughter followed you into the darkness and you ended up tied to a hospital bed. After that intense cutscene, you discovered that you are trapped inside your own mind and you have to fight your fears, travel through 4 portals, get the artifacts and find your way to the final door! The story is somewhat original in this game, and it is very interesting too, although it gets a little pale as the game progresses.
The graphics and music in Mind Snares are epic, basically what we would expect from a Collector’s Edition game so that is surely a plus for a Standard Edition game like this. The artwork is superb, bright and colorful while the spooks are there at the same time. The voice overs are awesome, especially the one who voiced the main character.
Mind Snares is not a terribly challenging game, the gameplay is nothing we did not expect, fairly typical for a HOPA game. The Hidden Object scenes are nicely made, most of the items are easy on the eye, but there are a couple that is more well blended into the background. We feel that the puzzles are a little disconnected to the story of the game, they are easy and nothing innovative – despite that, they are entertaining.
