Once again, the Sable Maze series takes us on a dark fantasy adventure in this latest sequel. As the title suggests, Sable Maze: Twelve Fears includes twelve different fears in the game’s storyline. On one hand, it is actually a pretty creative theme that we have not seen before in any other HOPAs. On the other hand, we found the story to be a little bit messy and the fears to be somewhat random. Basically, there is no logic whatsoever behind this game; things do not happen for a reason, a pure fantasy game.
As if to accompany the irrational storyline, the gameplay in Sable Maze: Twelve Fears is just as silly. We went around the scenes, back and forth, to collect random tokens and complete odd tasks. This does not mean that Twelve Fears is not entertaining though, as it still offers lots to do in each scene and some fun challenges. The hidden object scenes are highly interactive and are all very fun, although not unique in any way. However, the puzzles are less noteworthy. While there are tons of puzzles and mini-games throughout the game, most of them are fairly easy and not very original.
Despite all of the above, the production of Sable Maze: Twelve Fears is absolutely fantastic! The artwork is amazingly beautiful, vividly colorful and just a treat for the eyes in general. The graphics quality is top-notch, and all the scenes look spectacular on our monitor. We have nothing against the soundtracks, they play pleasantly in the background and suit the theme nicely. As for the voice-overs, we would say they are above-average.
It took us roughly 4 and a half hours to complete our journey through all the madness, odd fears and weird landscapes. Unfortunately, the bonus chapter is somewhat disappointing; short and unexciting. Other features in the Collector’s Edition are listed below.
