  3. In Brief:

    The lost Inca Prophesy is a story led match 3 with elements of a Hidden Object game. You’ll find the match 3 portion of the game a little different from the usual fare in that you can change the game mechanic to use different shaped tiles or use one of three different types of selection such as group, chaining and swapping tiles. Graphics are excellent, the story boards in my opinion break up the game a little too much, but you can quickly pass through those by clicking on them. Overall a reasonable game

    .

    Installation:

    Today’s game downloads to a 31.8MB zip file and unpacks to a read me doc with the terms and conditions and instructions

    The game installs to C:\program files (x86)\Playrix Entertainment\The Lost Inca Prophecy\LostIncaProphecy.exe by default and is 28.3MB in size once unpacked. There are shortcut installed to bother the desktop and the start menu/programs list; their is also an uninstaller unless you’re using programs like Revo. You can select your own installation path if you wish. :)

    I’ve not tested it on all my computers. Most are offline at the moment awaiting various repairs. It works on a Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit and a Win 7 Pro 64 bit and a Vista 32 bit laptop.

    The Game:

    Initial impressions are of a well constructed game with a menu system similar to that of 4 Elements. The main menu gives you access to Options, Scores and a smaller Exit (red buttons), as well as a larger green Play button. The options menu allows you to change the sound effects and music via sliders as well as toggles for full screen/windowed, custom cursor and one for slow PC’s. Using this will reduce the graphic quality a little. That sai, the system requirements list a 800MHz cpu which was common a decade ago, but computers since have moved on to much faster speeds. There’s no mention of what graphic RAM is required, but you will require a minimum of 500MB of RAM. Unless you are running an older operating system such as Win 98 your computer will almost certainly have at least 1GB or more of RAM. There’s no mention of gRAM requirements bt your graphics card needs to be at least Direct X 9.0c compliant. This standard has been around for almost 10 years, so it’s likely most users will have this as standard. The in game music is semi classical and acceptable in my opinion. It’s not too distracting and seems to be on a loop. There appears to be no way of changing the music, so, if you don’t like it you’ll have to turn the games music volume down via the options menu.

    On starting the game for the first time you are introduced to the games story via a story board style presentation. moving through the story board is accomplished via mouse clicks. There doesn’t appear to be any way to avoid having to flick through each page. The game itself is divided into two game modes; a basic hidden Object game and a match 3 game. The game starts with a Hidden Object game, where you have to find four items all of which are broken up into pieces. Most of the items you find are needed to expose other areas of the hidden object puzzle, for example, in the first puzzle you need to find all pieces of the axe, which is then used to clear an area of the puzzle, that exposes further pieces of the objects. Two of the objects cannot be completed until you’ve at least completed the axe. There is a hint button that fills up over a short period. there are no timers and you can click anywhere on the puzzle.

    Once completed further story boards appear then your first match three. This particular match three is interesting in that you can play it using different game geometry’s. there are three buttons that allow you to select whether the tiles are square or hexagonal, or allow the computer to randomly choose for each match three level. also you can play the game in three ways. As a swap tile match three, a chained match three where you first selct a tile then drag your mouse pointer across similar adjacent tiles and thirdly a group match three (the easiest) where you look for groups of similar tiles.

    The aim of the match three puzzle is to remove all the colored tiles from beneath the various tokens. I(f you look to the bottom left of the playing arena you’ll see a feathered serpent with six chambers. If you create six matches in a row that also destroy at least one of the colored tiles the serpent will send out lighning bolts that destroy several tiles randomly across the playing arena. You can also earn power-ups by creating longer chains of matches. There are four different power ups such as the hammer and a linking power up that can be used as any token. Once you’ve cleared the colored tiles a new token appears at the top of the arena. you have to move that token to the bottom of the arena before ending the level.

    Features:

    • The Lost Inca Prophecy has two types of game play. It combines Match 3 games and hidden object games.
    • The game is divided into four chapters. Each chapter contains twenty four Match 3 games and four hidden object games. There is one hidden object game at the beginning of each chapter, two in the middle and one at the end.
    • Hints in the hidden object games are unlimited but you must wait for them to recharge. A magnifying glass will appear over the area you need when you use a hint.
    • There are no timers in this game.
    • If you exit and quit the game in the middle of a level your progress will not be saved. You will be taken to the beginning of the level when you restart the game. You don’t go back to the beginning of the chapter, just the individual game level you are playing.
    • You can read Acua’s entries in her Travel Journal as you move through the game but you cannot turn the pages back and read past entries.
    • In addition to the normal Options for the game set up there is one titled Slow PC. You can check this option box to reduce the level of detail so that you can play the game on slower computers.

    Conclusion:
    Overall I found this match three mildly entertaining. The regular story boards became a little tedious after a while but they were easily dispatched via a mouse click. there should be a way of dismissing them altogether via a button at the beginning of the game, or a skip button each time they appear. The games graphics were nice. Well textured and they gave the game a luxurious feel. HOG gameplay was at its best simple, but still added to the overall feel of the game. The match three was quite unusual in that you could change the mechanics of the game to play whichever way you wished. This aspect adds extra replayability to the game and extends the gameplay life substantially. The overall score I gave to this game for game play, graphics, music, replayability and originality was 7.2

    Score:

    Overall I’d give this game the following score:
    Game play – 7
    Graphics – 7
    Music – 7
    Replayability – 7
    Originality – 8
    Total = 38 out of 50 which equates to 7.2 out of 10

    Request for Help:

    Developers rely on good feedback to improve their games. If you download this game please take some time once you’ve played it a while to leave some constructive feedback either positive or negative. The more constructive feedback we get, the more likely developers are going to give more games away. The giveaway site already has a very good standing with the search engines. Developers want their products out there on the WWW, this site has the potential to do that. The game giveaway project gives away on average between 9 to 17 thousand downloads for each game depending upon what genre and how obscure the game is. That’s a lot of homes these games are being downloaded into and a lot of ‘potential’ cash that’s being lost by the developers. If we get better games because of better feedback, the community are likely to continue to benefit from the generosity of the developers. Satisfied community members are then more likely to visit the home sites of those developers and purchase games that they may not have bothered with before they discovered the developer via the game giveaway site, thus giving the developers more incentives to give away even more decent games.

    Please leave some feedback once you’ve checked the game out. It can be positive or negative, but please explain what your reasons were for the feedback you post. You could also leave suggestions for improving the game, for example, this game could do with more block types for the levels editor, add more power-ups, describing the ones you think would be suitable, add some mini games (which seem all the rage in some arcade games now) or enable the user to be able to change the in game music easily.

    Thank you in advance to all those who take the time to post a constructive comment.

    Regards
