I want to mentioned that the visuals for this game is nicely done. The visuals can be adjusted in the option menu.
I want to mentioned that the audio for this game is well done even its simplistic and somewhat repetitive. The audio can be adjusted in the option menu as well.
There are only four difficulty game modes to choose from: Casual, Advanced, Hard and Custom.
There is an option of locking the inventory panel in place to make it stationary.
Task tab panel keep tracks of all game objectives.
There are interactive items in the game. Some of the interactive items do require extra items before they can be interact with. Interactive items are marked with a symbol at the corner.
The interactive map allows the player to fast travel between each location quickly. It also indicates there are tasks that needs to be done at certain locations. But it isn’t automatically given at the start of the game.
Most of the game’s hidden object scenes consists of traditional word lists, shadow items, find “x” amount with some or no interaction.
Most of the game’s puzzles are fairly easy to solve without having the need to skip any of them.
