Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart, Collector’s Edition HD (also available for iPhone/iPod touch) takes gamers on a journey to find an undead pirate who has kidnapped a museum owner’s daughter. Players must unravel secrets by finding hidden objects and playing mini-games to make it through all 45 locations.
As players get involved in the story, they soon find out that the undead pirate is entangled in a love story and wishes to resurrect his mistress with the life of the young daughter. Gamers must hunt him down by sailing the haunted seas and scavenging old fortresses.
There are two ways to play Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart. Regular mode has no penalty for tapping on the wrong hidden objects, and it also includes skip and hint buttons that recharge often so players can get help when they need it. Expert mode is for those who like more of a challenge. It features less help and extends the gameplay.
It’s much like most hidden object games. Players must find clues and search through locations in order to collect plot items to add to their inventory. One task leads to another task so there’s always something new and exciting to explore.
What stands out the most about The Cursed Heart is the frightening storyline. It’s great to see a game that engrosses players with its cut scenes. Most players usually tap on the skip button, but they’ll want to sit through the scenes and enjoy the thrilling story. Not only is the storyline interesting, but the graphics are quite detailed.
Unfortunately there are a couple areas where the game could be improved. One is that it needs to be more difficult. Even with the expert mode, there were times were I felt like I’d like more of a challenge. The game should include three modes of play instead of two so that expert doesn’t feel like a medium difficulty level. Secondly, it is a bit pricey. The game costs $6.99 for the iPad and $4.99 for the iPhone. However, it is free to try the game out first and then unlocking it through an in-app purchase for both the iPad and iPhone versions, which is recommendable for those who just aren’t quite sure if they are willing to shell out the extra cash.
Don’t let these points hold you back from experiencing this game, especially if you’re a huge fan of the hidden object genre. There’s plenty of content packed into Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart and the original storyline is sure to draw players in for hours of gameplay. It’s definitely worth adding to your wish list.
