In Subliminal Realms: The Masterpiece, you play as an artist whose wife and daughter have been kidnapped into your very own painting. Subliminal Realms has you jumping in and out of various painting worlds, interacting with imaginary characters and fantasy creatures – all the while trying to rescue your loved ones from the hands of the villain.
Unlike many of the portal-travelling games, Subliminal Realms: The Masterpiece actually has a really strong storyline. Not only is the storyline interesting, it also featured a big twist which makes the game much more exciting. There is obviously a lot of creativity that went into the development of Subliminal Realms: The Masterpiece. We found the concept of the game to be particularly intriguing; each painting world has different feels from another and the characters in the game are all very amusing to interact with.
Boolat Games has a visual style that we always love. The artwork is simply stunning, the colors are bright and attractive and the graphics look spectacular. Furthermore, we also love the animations in the game, all very smooth and pleasant. The soundtracks sound a little different from the usual soundtracks in typical HOPAs – they come in a variety of styles to fit the mood of each scene.
Subliminal Realms is not overly-challenging, but it is certainly very entertaining. The hidden object scenes are innovative and the objects are not too easy to find. At the same time, the puzzles contain some smart twists and are not impossible to solve. We also have a flying Egyptian dog helper, who can also talk. He is very useful, although we found him to be slightly annoying at times. Apart from the helper, there are also seven Paintbrushes of different colors – they can be used to complete unfinished paintings and unlock new portals, an intelligent idea!
We owned the Collector’s Edition of Subliminal Realms: The Masterpiece and we are impressed by the quality of the game and the quantity of the extras. Subliminal Realms is a fairly lengthly game, as it took us almost 5 hours to finish the main game and another hour for the solid bonus chapter.
