The Witness – A puzzle game all fans of the genre wanted

Posted by on Oct 25, 2016 in Games |

img-1The mystery genre in gaming is vast, as there are many ways in which developers introduced puzzles into their games. But the last few years were bad for the fans of this genre. Yes, there were dozens upon dozens of puzzle games hitting the market, but the lack of quality was evident.

The puzzles were very simple, and the repetitiveness was evident. To appeal to a wider audience, many developers simplified their puzzles. This almost killed this genre.

The Witness is one of few games that break this trend. The puzzles it brings are interesting and yet frustrating, which is the way puzzles should be.

The Witness –puzzle game for puzzle lovers

The Witness is a challenging game. You should expect confusion, frustration, and mental exhaustion during the play through. You might also consider giving up on it but keep on playing because this game has a lot to offer. The game won’t hold your hand; it will give you hints of its mechanics in subtle ways. This game isn’t made for people who have a weak understanding of puzzles.

The setting of the game is simple; you are on an island in the middle of the sea. The island has different settings, from snow-covered mountains to deserts. While walking around, you will notice panels that contain mazes. Complete those mazes, and you will get clues that will lead you to new puzzles and, in some cases, different doors.

The panels at the beginning are easy, but as you progress the game introduces new elements that become increasingly difficult. Some of those elements will force you to break already determined rules; others will add new mechanics and so on.  The diversity in this game is truly magnificent.


A game that will keep you glued to the screen

The majority of puzzle games have very little content and have around five or six hours of it. That isn’t enough for anyone. The Witness will keep you glued to the screen for more than 25 hours. The overall gameplay isn’t set in the background of the puzzles. As you go through the game, you will realize that puzzles have an effect on the world around you. Some puzzles change the environment around you, while others require certain environmental conditions. Some panels have no puzzles, but they still alter the world around the player.

The world of The Witness is open, and the player (you) can go wherever they want. Every setting has its puzzles and motifs. Once the puzzles in a particular scene become too challenging and impossible to complete, you can go to the other part of the island and learn new rules that will simplify those puzzles.

This open-world style of the game helps you to better understand complicated puzzles. It also gives you the ability to learn the game mechanics at your own pace.

The secret of HOPA games

Posted by on Sep 20, 2016 in Games |

photo-firstIf you have never heard of HOPA – the hidden object puzzle adventure games, then you are missing out.

Standing out from the majority of 3D action games we can see and play today the HOPA genre offers something entirely different.

Here, the accent is on the beautiful 2D graphics, immersive stories and brain puzzles that will keep you nailed to the computer screen for hours.

HOPA games first appeared in 2003. when some people were making a connect-two type mini game and decided to spice it up and add a mystery detective twist to it with some other mini games to make it even more fun.

The result was the first HOPA game – a detective story where the protagonist is trying to solve a case through a series of room escape-like scenes.

Until today this is the overall premise for the genre. You are usually solving a mystery or trying to get to the bottom of a particular enigma. The way you do it is masterfully placed inside of this 2D universe with amazing graphics that looks like a hand painted Renaissance piece.

You will never get a feeling of looking at the 2D plane while you are playing, the levels are usually beautifully put together, and this sort of look is an industry standard.

You advance through the game by moving through continuous scenes representing the interior and exterior of certain locations, usually separated by the narrative chapters.

Inside every scene, there are things you can interact with, pick them up and put them in your inventory in case they are needed later. These interactions are usually creative and force you to think and strategize.

You can pick up a rock to break the glass and pick up the special scissors that can cut that thick metal chord holding the chandelier to get a crystal needed for a laser machine. That kind of stuff.

There are also unique mini-games that make you think and are usually done as a way to break away from the main game story to test your wit and logic. They often help you get a special reward item that you will need in future.

The stories in these games often feature rich characters that you meet and interact with in the game and the games of this genre, if done well, can look like an interactive movie. That is how we come to the best part of the HOPA games – the interactive narrative moment.

HOPAs often present more than plain amusement and offer us a wealth of experience where we can enjoy a great story while being actively involved in its development. We have a feeling of immersion, and the amazing graphics that we mentioned is certainly helping.

Another great thing about HOPA is the future and integration with the VR platform because the first person view is perfect for this kind of technology. We are still waiting for this news.

A beginners guide through Dominations

Posted by on Sep 19, 2016 in Games |

mobile-gamesPlaying games on your mobile phone is one of the things the development of the technology provided us with, and there isn’t a living soul that isn’t thankful for this. How would we spend our free time, wait in lines or ride in the busses without them?

Probably the same we do today, but way more boring. Dominations is one of the games in the spotlight nowadays, maybe it is because of its interesting and unique theme, and maybe because it isn’t boring like most of them.

The thing about this game is that you always have something new to explore, someone new to defeat and something new to learn.

The theme of this game is something similar to traveling trough time, from the ancient times to modern era, learning about history, army, and architecture about one of the seven biggest nations.

Choose the nation and cruise through their history, defeat other players, explore and expand your town and see what happens. If you’re here for the tips on how to improve your game play, here are some Dominations cheats and tricks you could use.

Everything you do will have consequences in the future, so you have to be careful about each and every move. There are three most important aspects of this game – Buildings, Upgrades, and Battles.

Building houses will bring you more workers, more workers will bring your more effective power meaning more upgrading, more building, and more battles, therefore this should be your primary activity.

Organizing the workers the right way also has an influence on your later missions, if you send all of your workers to build houses, you won’t have any left for hunting or upgrading, so you have to keep that in mind too.

Army is one more thing you need to worry about, each soldier will cost you gold which is why you have to use your money carefully, think hard about spending the money, when and what will you buy.

Think strategically about military formations, decide which soldier you can afford and which do you need for better results in battle, spend your money wisely. Raiding is the fastest way to earn resources, and this is why you shouldn’t restrain yourself, spending money on soldiers is an excellent, wise investment.

Aside from all these tips and tricks that you might learn on your own, here are some tips you maybe didn’t know about. Even though raiding is the fastest way to earn resources in the game, there is one easier and quicker way than that, and it’s of external nature.

Players who don’t want to spend real money on additional Dominations resources and who want to progress faster developed the so-called dominations hack generator which offers free resources and cheats.

Using these tools and tricks, you can get as many resources as you need. You can choose among gold, crowns or food and you can even choose the exact amount of the goods you need.

And the best thing about this is that you don’t have to reveal anything about yourself you don’t want to, everything it requires is information about your dominations account.

No Man’s Sky – Latest news and updates

Posted by on Aug 9, 2016 in Games, News & Updates |

The fans of No Man’s Sky received some good and some bad news in the last week.
The developers of the game post their updates and their progress regularly, and that keeps the fans on the edge. If we are to trust the developers, the game is being filled with new features every day. The initial delay of the release from June to August enrages some of the fans, but the news concerning a big update calmed everyone. The update will add many different things to enrich the journey of the player.
no-mans-sky-screen-08-ps4-us-28may15The expectations were brought down by a player who bought an illegal version of the game for more than 1300 dollars. After a while, the player started posting news and the most heart-breaking news for the fans of this big open world game is that he managed to reach the center of the galaxy in 30 hours or so. The most disheartening thing is that he visited different worlds on that journey, which means that this wasn’t a rush to the center, but play through that explored all aspects of the game.

He said that his intention wasn’t solely to reach the galaxy’s center, but to explore all features that the game offers. He stated that he studied many things and that there are some of those that didn’t fulfill his expectations. He also indicated that he didn’t cover all the major events in his play through and that the players have more to find in the galaxy.
no-mans-sky-screenshot-02_1920.0.0Finally, he shared a secret on how he managed to reach the center in a short time frame. He said that a typical trip is a lot longer, but he found help through an overpriced item. Once he found the thing he sold it on the market and invested the money into upgrades that would increase his speed. He was able to acquire this item multiple times through which he gained an incredible amount of resources that shortened his journey to the center.
The item in question is purchased legally, but in this way it breaks the game down. The player said that he hopes for a Day One patch that will nerf this item and fix many bugs that still exist. The developers told the fans to stay away from the videos this player posts, but many didn’t listen.
maxresdefaultThe disappointment flooded the internet as the main features that drew the fans to the game need more tweaking. Many of those fans shared their concerns about the game on different videos and forums. The hype for the game is still there, but its proportions are smaller than before. Some people said that this is good because the game would be a big disappointment if it came to the players that had no knowledge this player shared.
We hope that the game will be more polished when it comes out. The promised to update and possible Day One patch should (we hope) fix many of the issues that are still in the game.
