In Brief:

Dark Strokes: The Legend of the Snow Kingdom is a decent Hidden Object game with excellent mini games. We were given another in this series just over four years ago (15th Oct 17) called Dark Strokes - Sins of the Fathers, which hasn't been repeated since.

Todays game was given away twice previously i.e. on the 11th November 2018 and 27th January 2019.

You can see a few videos of game play HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE & HERE.
Introduction:.

nspired by the timeless tales of the Brothers Grimm, "Dark Strokes: The Legend of the Snow Kingdom" offers an experience rich with magic and wonder.

Guide the hunter as he seeks to save his beloved from a warlock who's kidnapped her and cast an icy spell over a once glorious kingdom, search for and find cleverly hidden clues and objects, and uncover the truth about a tree with leaves of gold that holds a startling secret!

Once you complete the main scenario, your adventure will be far from over, as you'll unlock a bonus episode that delves even deeper into the mystery of the Snow Kingdom, desktop wallpapers, production sketches, character art, a downloadable soundtrack, and more!

The Game:
A mysterious knight shrouded by snow and ice. A castle lost in the skies. A young woman trapped in a crystal ball. And a hunter with nothing more than a bow and arrow who must save her. Sounds like the perfect setup for a dark fantasy fairy tale! Dark Strokes: The Legend of the Snow Kingdom sends you on a journey of mystery, throwing plot twists and mini-games at you faster than you can say “Oh, neat!”.

Dark Strokes is a sprawling adventure filled with action, creative puzzles, interesting inventory items, and plenty of surprises. Most of the obstacles in your path can be solved by locating a few objects in the general vicinity. To pick up those items, you might have to solve a small mini-puzzle. Then you realize the items need to be combined with something else, sending you on a journey further away. Once you get everything you need, piece it together, solve another short mini-game, and the object is yours. It’s sometimes a roundabout process, but it’s absolutely satisfying and always logical. No guessing required, just good old-fashioned detective work.

Dark Strokes uses hidden object scenes sparingly. You’ll encounter several standard list-type sections, each with a handful of interactive items to puzzle over. To make or discover these objects, you’ll usually need to complete a brief mini-game, most of which require minimal interaction and are just fun to watch. There are also a handful of short twists on the HOG layout that pop up from time to time. For example, an early mini-puzzle tasks you with finding items for a locked chest based on their silhouette. These aren’t quite hidden object scenes in full, but they operate in a similar fashion and are great fun to work through.

Have you ever wanted to play a first-person horse riding mini-game? The Legend of the Snow Kingdom has that, believe it or not! This game is filled with creative diversions that go well beyond the usual battery of puzzles in a hidden object adventure. In addition to the riding game, you’ll collect cannons for a model, feed a fat statue, and loads more. When you see these puzzles, they’ll bring a grin to your face, and when you complete them that grin will return.

Dark Strokes is packed with extra things to do and find. Morphing objects are hidden all over the place, and collectible snowflakes pop up in the most unexpected areas. There are even things you can interact with just for fun, such as a basket of fruit you can nibble off of or icicles that fall when you click them. Extras like this don’t impact the game, they just reward you for being thorough, and they’re tons of fun to discover.

The core of Dark Strokes: The Legend of the Snow Kingdom is a straightforward dark fantasy hidden object adventure. What sets it apart from other games is its focus on frequent and unique mini-games along with just-for-fun interactive elements. Dark Strokes is full of surprises, making it one of the more amusing adventure games on the market.

Conclusion:
Originally I'd only played the game for a short while; however, I did find what little of the game I managed to plough through was well made with excellent graphics, decent puzzles, standard Hidden Object Scenes and well-made mini games. I've nothing bad to say about today's game. I’m sure most HOG lovers will enjoy this one. almost a decade old now but it does have most of the more recent HOG innovations. :).

Whiterabbit-uk,



Other Free Games:

Ashampoo-Snap-02-December-2021-02h42m28s-023
Don't forget to check Indie Gala's freebie section HERE, then click on the Showcase header, selecting freebies from the drop down menu; recent additions include North and the full version of Die Young; we were previously given the prologue version, (which is still available free) Recent games such as Distortions, Dino Run DX, Cheap Golf, Kill Em All, Dead Hungry Diner and Contract with the Devil have now been removed. All remaining freebies can be found in the showcase section (around 100 are available). Not all games that go into the showcase remain free, so you should grab them as soon as you can.


Over the Christmas period Epic games are giving away a game every day . A new mystery game will go live at 11am Eastern/4pm UK time each day. The deals are live for 24 hours only, so check the site everyday HERE to see if it's a game you fancy.
I'm going to leave each days game showing so that you can see what was available:
Shenmue 3 usually £24.99 - 16th to 17th December.
Neon Abyss usually £15.99 - 17th to 18th December
Remnant: From the Ashes usually £31.99 - 18th to 19th December
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter usually £15.99 - 19th to 20th December
Loop Hero (£12.49) - 20th to 21st December - this is live at the moment The Lich has thrown the world into a timeless loop and plunged its inhabitants into never ending chaos. Wield an expanding deck of mystical cards to place enemies, buildings, and terrain along each unique expedition loop for the brave hero. Recover and equip powerful loot for each class of hero for their battles and expand the survivors' camp to reinforce each adventure through the loop. Unlock new classes, new cards, and devious guardians on your quest to shatter the endless cycle of despair.
If anyone has TheHunter on Steam; or who got the game via Epic when it was free some weeks ago) and is interested in playing some co-op with me, please leave a message in the thread I posted over in the forums HERE; I'll then contact you via the email you've used for your forum sign in and I'll send you a link to my Discord channel and make some arrangements to play. I've been playing the game regularly since June this year (accruing over 600 hours of game play). I've found playing with friends much more enjoyable. If you are new to the game and are maybe shy online, then I will help you get to grips with the game I've always been quite shy when online and always treat people with respect. I don't swear and conversation is usually just about the game.
The best Indie Bundles sites that have been operating from around 2011 are the Humble Bundle and Indie Gala sites (though the latter isn't as good as it used to be) where you'll sometimes find decent bundles with over 90% off the usual price of the games included in the bundles. The Humble site is in my opinion the best. A more recent addition that is worth checking out are the Fanatical bundles (that used to be called Bundle Stars) that you can find HERE.


Also available free at the moment over on GOG is Cave Story®'s Secret Santa (when I first posted this last week, it wasn't actually available; you will need to revisit the page to claim the game if you tried grabbing it last week).

Press any Button is 100% off at the moment on Steam HERE. Also available for free (always) on Steam is TrackMania Nations Forever, which I implied has some similarities to todays game giveaway. It's actually nothing like Trackmania apart from the zany track layouts.

As part of Ubisofts 35th anniversary, they are now giving away Rayman Origins; grab it HERE gab it while you can. You do need a free uPlay account to get the game. Once added to your uPlay account, it's yours to keep.


p.s. I have a spare Steak key for Siberia 2 and Tomb Raider IV: The Last Revelation (now given away to Jeffrey) which I want to give away. If you are interested, the first person to ask will get a key. Only one key per person. I may post more games for steam later in the day.

I don't understand why this has a less than 50% approval rating. It runs on my Win10 laptop and XP desktop without a problem and seems ok from my brief run through the early stages. I wish those voting it down would tell us why...

Min,

Hi Min, yes I agree. I don't recall any other HOG getting such a low positive thumbs up before. Personally I thought this was a decent HOG and I don't particularly enjoy playing HOG's these days.

Min,

No problems installing or playing the game. As far as HOGs go, this one is very good. Definitely something amiss here with the votes.

Not sure why all the thumbs down on this game, it's great game. It is graphic intense, and it's a large game (717mb) taking about 25 minutes to download on a fairly fast internet wifi connection. But it's well worth it. Beautiful graphics, great game play, nice HOG.
Thank you devs and GGOTD for another great giveaway!

Lady of the Forest,

Yes, it seems odd. I noted the disparity when I posted my images later in the day. I don't recall ever seeing such a negative response to a HOG before. I'm not a lover of HOG's but I did think this one was well constructed and interesting, so am surprised at the low positive votes?

I'm not a huge fan of HOGs, however I really like this one. Not sure where all of the votes came from. I've not seen this many votes cast in a very long time. Seems like a lot of FALSE NEGATIVE votes to me.

Reply   |   Comment by Reynaldo  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Reynaldo,

I agree; seems odd when most HOG's get between 80 to 90% positive votes.

Whiterabbit-uk, maybe they are tired of such games?
