Mysteries of Neverville: The Runestone of Light

The runestone of light that has protected the town of Neverville for thousands of years is missing. With nothing to protect the town, an evil fog has surrounded the people inside. You are the daughter of Cygnus Rastlin, the greatest guardian of Neverville and must return to the town to stop the evil from spreading. Find out who is lurking in the fog! Is it the notorious necromancer Grimhall, who was once captured and buried inside a stone chamber by Cugnus Rastlin himself? Who is behind the disappearance of the runestone? Will you be able to save the innocent people of Neverville from their grim fate by restoring the runestone to its rightful place?

It is an old theme with a new twist. Music is fine, voice overs are pretty good, the main character's voice is a little over done, and she looks kind of ridiculous in a pose from some girly magazine. Just when you get to the point of fighting the big boss and think things are finally going to happen, the game abruptly ends! The hidden object areas are still decent enough despite being a bit too simple to be overly challenging, but the exploration of Neverville and finding uses for your inventory proves to be the more mentally stimulating side of the game and the one with the better variation of difficulty. There is a hint that is a real hint — and if it will take you away from your current location, it will teleport you. The puzzles were not that hard. HOS are very, very crowded in spots, requiring patience to find everything. The characters are very lifelike, although there are no lip movements, and there are a lot of dialog boxes to read. It's a good game, Really! The intro is well done. This replaces the totally absent journal and map. It's simplistic, no morphing objects, collections, or awards. Rated 5 out of 5 by pennmom36 from People Say There Is An Evil Presence Lurking In The Fog The runestone of life has disappeared from the tower, and with the runestone missing there is nothing to protect the people of Neverville from the evil northern fog! The graphics need work.

This replaces the totally absent journal and map. I will not be playing this game again, I wish they would redo it and make it longer, I would try it again if they did. The simple ones are almost too basic to really be considered as true gameplay, but some of the ones that take a bit of time and figuring out are a decent addition to the game. Some items are very small, but they are all pretty doable, you can just skip after a while if you get fed up or use a hint. The hidden object areas are still decent enough despite being a bit too simple to be overly challenging, but the exploration of Neverville and finding uses for your inventory proves to be the more mentally stimulating side of the game and the one with the better variation of difficulty. Music is fine, voice overs are pretty good, the main character's voice is a little over done, and she looks kind of ridiculous in a pose from some girly magazine. Making progress on your quest to save Neverville actually involves more problem solving than hidden object searches surprisingly enough, and this ends up being for the better despite many of these being easy in the same way the object hunts are. A few of the h. The story is fairly traditional in it being about stopping an evil warlock and not much else, with only a few cast members like a fortune teller and your uncle Arthur entering the picture, but full voice acting makes it a bit more interesting while a hilariously abrupt conclusion kind of undermines that extra level of effort that went into the story-telling. I loved the wolf spirit. Date published: Rated 3 out of 5 by dhoneykids3 from Short and Sweet After reading good things about this game I decided to try it. That's it!

But the story is interesting and gameplay was very good and occasionally quite challenging. This is mostly an adventure game with a lot of mini games and puzzles. You still have hint, if you want. The mini game I liked the best was swapping gnomes of different colors so that no two gnomes with the same color are sitting on the same path. Sometimes I felt like I played portions of the game before - but it may be recycled scenes which didn't bother me much since they were so pretty. It looks too easy from the get go but believe me it is not. Okay, I added the dinner bit. There are many more puzzles than HOPs, they are everywhere. This isn't an over the top game with all the bells and whistles, but it is a really entertaining game with lots of puzzles to keep you busy, enjoy! There is a lot of back and forth, but the hint jumps help out there. The protector of the town has gone missing at the same time as the runestone though, so you play as his daughter Valerie coming to investigate and set things right. No penalties, but it does take a little while to recharge. Despite the fact that the story is nothing really new, it is a fun game with a good level of challenge. Some would barely qualify as them like putting ingredients in a mixing bowl in the right order while others are more clearly puzzles like mixing around gnomes so no two of the same color are connected, and as such, how you judge them likely depends more on your parameters. Music is fine, voice overs are pretty good, the main character's voice is a little over done, and she looks kind of ridiculous in a pose from some girly magazine.
