PC Game Review: Tiger's Eye: The Sacrifice

Tiger's Eye: The Sacrifice

Author:  Marjorie M. Liu

Company:  Passionfruit Games

Released:  April 12, 2012

Series:  2nd in Tiger's Eye series of games; 1st Tiger's Eye: Curse of the Riddle Box

Recommendation:  Oh yes!!  Do you enjoy mind challenging games?  And PNR books?  This is a wonderful game for you!  Even if you don't read books.

Review:
Oh this was a wonderful mind challenging game that also links to the PNR book world.  First, no, you don't have to read the books to play the game.  I haven't *shame on me* I do want to though, after playing these games.  The game easily walks you through the stages with clips of the characters and what you are to do to get to the next phase, so no pre-reading needed.

To start the game, you get to pick the Option of Difficulty; Casual which is with sparkles over areas of interest (which I used) or Advanced which is with out the sparkles and the tutorial is turned off.  Maybe now that I've played the game once and know what I'm to do ahead of time, I could play with the Advanced level to take the challenge up a step for me.
Backstage of the Theater
It is nice to see the clips and scene shots as we go through the game.  To see what it is we are working for.  We find ourselves in Dela's home, the theater, the morgue, and many other places around Dela's home town.  And even trying to save her friend!
To Save Kit
There are different types of mystical puzzles with in this whole process to challenge you.  I will say it is amazing the way ones mind works.  I found a few challenges to be particularly hard for me, and I started to get frustrated.  This however is my personality, I don't like it when I can't get something right quickly.  But I sat back looked at the screen, and did the hand palm thing as I saw exactly what I was missing.  Yeap.  That is what I LOVE about these games.  They really made me think, the whole purpose, as I don't like when I can breeze through games without batting an eyelash.  This game had me working, and I loved it for it.
Magi Ritual Room
There are games with hidden items, connect the pieces to create parts and paths, find parts then complete the puzzles inside.  Puzzles inside puzzles.  You have to do one stage of finding the "pieces" that will then open up another puzzle to solve.  You are not limited to just the one screen you are on either.  Some pieces could be back on another screen.  You have to go find them.

But there are clues!  You can earn extra clues to help you get to the parts you can't find because they are hidden so well.  I did get stumped a few times, and used the journal to track what I was to do, as I had a few puzzles going at one time, and the hints button to get to where I needed to be, when I was off on another screen.

As a whole this game took me a little over 5 hours to complete.  I even got caught up in playing it over the weekend, and lost track of time.  So easy to do.

If you are interested in purchasing either, or both, of the portions of the game ~ Tigers Eye: Curse of the Riddle Box, or Tigers Eye: The Sacrifice, you can find them at PassionfruitGames.com
