Making Of & Bonus Hidden Objects
Similar to the previous Amaranthine games, The Shadow of Torment is a magical and charming game despite its rather gloomy subtitle. The visuals in this game are simply mind-blowing; with gorgeous colors, amazing details, spectacular effects and eye-catching locations. Furthermore, the music is appropriate and voice overs are of high quality.
As engaging as the story is, we could not help but feel a little bored occasionally during the game. The main reason for this is probably the lack of challenge; Amaranthine 3 is a very busy game with a lot of tasks, interactions and mini-puzzles. Still, all of them are straightforward and easy – even the puzzles are fairly easy in spite of their innovativeness. The Hidden Object scenes are also easy, they usually contain jumbo-size objects which make them very easy to complete. Nonetheless, they are creative and highly interactive; those who do not like hunting for objects can also switch to Bubble Popper mode.
The main game of The Shadow of Torment lasted around 3 and a half hour for us and the Bonus Chapter was about an hour. As usual with Eipix games, this game comes with fully-loaded extra content which even contained three hidden object scenes from other Eipix games, how thoughtful is that!
