It’s time for another hidden object mystery review, and I’m hoping that those of you who took time to look into Shaolin Mystery enjoyed it as much as I did. Today’s review gives us a look into a place many readers of contemporary romance have been familiar with for decades, the story from a Harlequin Presents book. My mother still reads these, and as far as I can recall she was reading them back in the 80s, as well. I’m more of a manga reader, but shojo manga has much in common with such books. In this hidden object game, we meet Allie, a reporter for a news magazine, and her photographer, Shaun, as they are sent on an assignment to cover a big birthday bash for Prince Stephani. The Kingdom of Adamas is a small nation on the Mediterranean Sea, and details of the setting can be seen clearly in the artist style in the games, even in the puzzle mini-games. As with many books and hidden object games, we get some adventure, bad guys, mystery, romance and fun times along the way. In this game, we even get to chase a jewel thief. I’m not sure when the original book was published, but this game makes me want to track it down at my local used book store in Chipley. I really enjoyed it, and would like to see more games like this come from such familiar sources.

In a nice change of pace from the regular puzzle games, I’m taking you into a hidden object mystery from the 18th Century filled with dark magick, logic puzzles, hidden objects, and vampiric spells. Damon has become a vampire through the machinations of a dark queen of the night, and on a hunt, he spots a tasty morsel of a meal that turns out to be the one person who can lift his curse. I really enjoyed helping Victoria in breaking the spells that held her dark prince and the turn in a surprise ending that looks like it could spawn a sequel, which I hope it does. Like the current trend in vampire fiction, Love and Death: Bitten has a romantic twist, but with its historical Olde World setting, it is very different than what we see on the big screen, and even the little screen these days. So come where horror and romance mix in a fun way, and you’ll want to keep playing along with Love and Death: Bitten as much as I did.
