This is a visually striking adventure game. With its Indian twist on the usual HOPA game. It not only delivers on what you’d expect from a game of this genre. But there are also plenty of unique features, making this a very satisfying game to play.
The game play, mainly puzzle-solving as well as hidden object scenes. Are varied and creative with some challenge. And the story is interesting and compelling.
Overall the game play is good and well-done. The story is fresh and a nice change from the usual storylines. But where this game really stands out is with the visuals, sound and amount of game play.
The scenery is vibrant, colorful and detailed. The sound effects and background music are rich and atmospheric. Adding to the drama of the unfolding adventure story. And there is plenty of game play with the collectibles and other Collector’s Edition extras.
