Dark Dimensions: City of Fog

Reviewed by Cherie Jung

(March, 2013)

A beautiful bride-to-be dies the night before her wedding. An unwanted admirer has been stalking her and threatening her life. Is he the one responsible for her death? And what of the mysterious fog that enveloped the town and still obscures it to this very day? It's up to the player to unravel these mysteries.

I got off to a very slow start. In the beginning the areas available for investigation seem quite limited. I missed finding several important clues because I was moving too fast. After I settled down and re-explored the area, things began to open up.

The hidden object scenes were fairly easy — although I missed a couple of them initially because I was in a hurry to get somewhere else; entirely my own fault — and the puzzles were challenging but for the most part, fun.

A big plus, at least for me, was that when all had been done in a particular area for the time being and it was time to move on to another location, the game indicates that you are "done here for now." It also reminds you, if you wander into the scene again before there is anything new to do there.

The final solution seemed a bit abrupt and too easy, but that's in comparison to how much I struggled trying to work through the rest of the game. As I mentioned, I kept missing important clues by going too fast (and playing too late at night, in such long stretches). I think more experienced gamers won't make the mistakes I did and they will find the game less frustrating than I found it but still challenging.

The full version game is 296.30 MB. (The trial version is 223.39 MB.) The list price is $9.99. I paid $6.99 with an online discout.
