That’s it! I conquered Curse of Enchantia! I slayed the beast! Victory! Free at last!
I have mixed feelings about it. One part of me is very proud to have done this without a walkthrough (even if the temptation was very strong a few times) and the other part is astonished by the vacuity of the whole thing. I think my soul has died a little by playing this game to completion. Good thing it was for the blog, if it helps at least one person to stay away from this game in the future, maybe my sacrifice wasn’t for nothing.
But for now, let’s all go back in the enchanted land of Enchantia one last time in order to help Brad get rid of the evil sorceress once and for all! Yay!
|Don’t worry, Brad. It’ll all be over real soon.|
|Black Mamba was a wuss.|
|Why my tombstone is actually on the grave next to mine is anyone’s guess. Maybe it was another Brad.|
|What a warm welcome! In my arms!|
|The land of Enchantia is full of clumsy runners.|
|Worst vampire ever.|
Two more steps and Bob is there again. This time, he is nice enough to let me take all my time in order to pick up the garlic bread and the crucifix lying on the ground.
|New theory : Bob just likes getting hurt and he leaves these kinds of items purposefully on the ground.|
|I expect the next encounter to be solved with a 1-ton acme weight.|
|50 shades of vampire.|
|Good thing there is no damsel in distress in this game. My killer breath could have been a problem later.|
|He is not even trying anything now. He’s just waiting for me to attack him with something.|
|I am the great Jacinto. Take that!|
|Come on, buddy, you’re not even trying.|
|Don’t worry. This hurts you more than it hurts me.|
|Come on, Bob, don’t take it like that, we were having fun.|
|My guess : a few puzzles had to be cut due to budget or time restrictions. Well I won’t complain. This game has wasted enough of my time already.|
|I certainly hope this security system didn’t cost them too much...|
|Once you realise the monstrous door looks like it wears a small red hat, the whole thing feels more festive than intimidating.|
|The only interactive item in this room. Seems like a waste.|
|Well funny except for Brad who is now completely toothless.|
|I think the book in question is “Adventure game programming for dummies”|
|Hey you look eerily like your sister in the ice cave, don’t you?|
|‘Tis but a flesh wound|
|Who you gonna call?|
|Here, cool off.|
|Magic can’t do anything against a good electric appliance.|
|Now that the witch is done for, I can quietly turn super-saiyan.|
|Oh, and Shadow of the Beast wants its font back.|
|I’m not sure the lads gave enough criticism.|
So now, all I have left to do is crush the game with all the might of the PISSED system (which probably never wore its name more accordingly), but in the meantime I have a few questions, I don’t know if anyone can answer but I need to ask them anyway.
- Why did I finish the game with 92% completion? Maybe I missed a fantastic optional area with exceptional puzzles? Yeah, probably not.
- What were the use of the silver plate, the pen and the piece of meat?
- Why didn’t I do anything in the village inn? Seems like a lot of work for an area with absolutely no purpose.
- Why am I still asking questions about this game while all I want to do is drink my sorrows away and go play an actual good adventure game?
Session time : 1 hour
Final total time : 9 hours 30 minutes (way too long)
Items that never found a purpose : Piece of meat, match, silver plate, pen
Final score : 441
Percentage complete : 92% (why???)
