Off The Record: Liberty Stone

You thought you’d found a plum assignment covering a beauty pageant in paradise. But then the famous Liberty Stone - which was to be worn by the pageant winner - goes missing. And you’re one of the suspects! The saga of the savvy journalist continues in Eipix’s latest game in the Off the Record series! Uncover the clues about rival families who both lay claim to the highly prized stone. Play fresh, innovative puzzles in this intriguing hidden-object puzzle adventure game.

Puzzles were rather easy and I never got hung up on what to do next, so not challenging enough in the most difficult mode. Although the puzzles are not difficult, they are still quite fun and very entertaining. I played on Easy for a relaxing game and actually found myself enjoying many of the HO scenes, with their "builds" -- not the usual find-the-tiny-object exercise found in most HO games. Had a couple of tough mini games but unique. The game grabbed me from the start. My favorite game required you to spin a roulette wheel to receive your numbers, then you had to place exactly four chips on each number whose sum totaled the number shown. Excellent teleporting Hint button, different types of HOPs, cohesive storyline, beautiful graphics. The objectives on the left side of the screen were annoying. One of the tools that I personally appreciate and use the most is the interactive transporter-type map that this development team includes in its games. The HO scenes were varied and there were morphing objects to find in these, but I enjoyed them and did not find them tedious, as I did with Danse Macabre. There was no journal although we keep asking EIPIX for one but the story wasn't too hard to follow and objectives were regularly updated. While I still do not understand the need for the dialog boxes, the voice overs were well done.

Good Game. The fourth installment of the Off the Record series is the best yet. Submit Thank you for writing a review! As is the case with many of you, I play a lot of HOPA games and look forward to the puzzles, and it seems like some of the puzzles in this game are a bit different than usual.

  1. I love the feisty little monkeys that are playing in the various game scenes and lights that I can click that turn on and off again. The only real downside to the game is in the HO scenes. Highly recommended. The small amount of background information in the tapes could have been covered in notes, as other info was. LOL There is an interactive map which does show places where you have something to do and will transport you to any location on the map.

  2. The game ran smoothly and I can't wait for another installment! The owner of the resort, Carlos Sterling, is allowing the winner of the pageant to wear the Liberty Stone, which is not sitting well with Tyrell Walker who claims to be the true owner of the stone.

They are always helpful at providing a nudge in the right direction just in case I may have forgotten where I might need to use an item that I am lugging around in my inventory. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by biscuitsmama from The Liberty Stone is a Real Gem In an exciting new game in the Off the Record series you are off to the Caribbean to cover a beauty pageant where the winner gets the biggest prize of all — a chance to wear the famed Liberty Stone, a gorgeous, mammoth-sized ruby. Some of the HOS are just regular list finds, my favorite was a progressive silhouette game where you find fruit to mix, and play a minigame where you cut the fruit when a meter is in the green zone, and then add that mixture to a shaker bottle and shake the shaker as fast as you can.

  5. I particularly enjoy the Caribbean sounds that set the ambience for the game and bring back memories of some special vacations I had in those wonderful islands. Seriously, I did not leave my seat until it was finished.

  6. The objectives on the left side of the screen were annoying. Gameplay, graphics and everything else was totally alright with me. You need to work against time to solve the case and restore your good name.

It would be good for beginner to intermediate. If you consider yourself an expert, I'd suggest you get the Collector's Edition. When you are talking to some of the characters, you get to choose responses in three different categories, Sharp, Straight or Bluff.

  8. All so gorgeous. Although the puzzles are not difficult, they are still quite fun and very entertaining. Once again, you will find several audio cassettes throughout the game to play in your cassette recorder, there is an icon to the left of the inventory bar for quick access to the recorder. The special effects were good and the music went along with the action at the time and was not irritating. I did play more than my usual of them, but I just don't have the desire to over work what brain I have left

  9. I do believe you will find it an acceptable game for all ages. When you are talking to some of the characters, you get to choose responses in three different categories, Sharp, Straight or Bluff. Some games have a 5 - 15 second refresh feature. Minor quibbles: The game could have used a journal, for players who want to limit their use of hints and the map. While I still do not understand the need for the dialog boxes, the voice overs were well done.

  10. I particularly enjoy the Caribbean sounds that set the ambience for the game and bring back memories of some special vacations I had in those wonderful islands. Because there aren't enough time management and strategy games available IMHO , I rarely play hidden object games. The Collector's Edition has available Achievements to earn, 12 Collectible Alphabets and 43 hidden Seahorses to collect. The variety and quality of HO scenes and mini-games is excellent.

  12. Another Great Game! The small amount of background information in the tapes could have been covered in notes, as other info was. Inventory was labeled and interactive, with complex items to assemble.
