Amaranthine Voyage: The Orb of Purity Collectors Edition

From Eipix Entertainment, the studio that created Danse Macabre and Phantasmat, invites you to explore a new world in the next Amaranthine Voyage! Professor Samantha Bennett has made a huge breakthrough in her harmonium research, but is shocked when a man from another world falls through her new portal. The man calls himself Kraixx and appears to be ill, pleading with Prof. Bennett to save his world. Since you're the leading expert on harmonium, Prof. Bennett calls you in, hoping you can save this strange man's life and uncover the mysteries of the dark harmonium threatening to swallow Kraixx's world. Search this new world for clues, but beware the Watchers, a cold-hearted group whose goal is to arrest anyone with magical abilities, including Kraixx. You'll have to decide who to trust in this new world where anything is possible.

Overall, this was repetitive and marginal for me. The graphics, simply drawn and not very well I might add. I assume the low ratings come from people who have tried a lot of Eipix's stuff, but don't be deceived by them: this game has bright, interesting scenery, a unique storyline for the most part even if it does dovetail into the usual 'rescuing people from a mysterious evil' style of tale , and a fusion of fantasy and sci fi elements. You might just love it. As expected, Eipix delivers some excellent visuals. Now you must protect Kraixx, travel to that world and finish work of your new friend, protecting that world from the wrath of dark harmonium! In this series:. I would almost buy the game just to see what it has for an ending, as though we couldn't guess. Who among them is the villain? I really don't know what has happened to this developer, but the quality has gone downhill for a while now. Follow Kraixx back to his world and help him overturn the Watchers and restore the balance in this new game in the Amaranthine Voyage series - The Orb of Purity. Date published: Rated 2 out of 5 by coffeyfan77 from A Less Than Fantastic Voyage I have to say I was majorly disappointed with this entry in the Amaranthine series. The adventure portion of the game should be a no-brainer for all of those who are familiar with HOPAs from Eipix — it involves a lot of running back and forth as well as a handful of same-old tasks. Depends upon how much you like it.

Date published: Luckily, the art team is here to save this game rolling down the hill. You can select from a choice of four modes of gameplay: Easy, Medium, Hard, and Custom. I'm having fun and it seems a good way to while away a rainy afternoon. You'll zip through portals and meet lots of people who end up standing there helplessly while you do absolutely everything, and while the consequences of failure are presented as very great indeed, I can't say you ever feel like anything going on is really that important.

The graphics, simply drawn and not very well I might add. Though I have not played much more than the demo, I write to recommend whether to by the CE or the SE because that's what I want to know when both are out. This game has all the CE bells and whistles, so if you really like the game, the CE might be worth it. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by skullfun from Amaranthine Voyage 5: Get the balance Right! And things get less intelligible from there, unfortunately. If you want something bright and fantastical but not too hard, you could do a lot worse than spending an afternoon on this game. We also have an interactive transporter type map that is located on the right side of the user interface area.

Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by skullfun from Amaranthine Voyage 5: Get the balance Right! Now, I approach their games just like anyother developer. I would almost buy the game just to see what it has for an ending, as though we couldn't guess. Unfortunately, this one was not fun for me and I couldn't wait to have the demo end. I'm having fun and it seems a good way to while away a rainy afternoon. Unfortunately, the animations were not done as good this time around. Every time you use the Gauntlet you will play a small mini game of either matching the identical symbols or drag ropes across every star point. There were many moments in the game that we felt confused by plot-points that are disconnected, illogical and even somewhat contradictory. Most of the Hidden Object Puzzles are silhouetted shape finds, or multiple finds, but there's also an extremely interactive and progressive scene where you fidget with all kinds of gadgets, and another where you are tasked with finding symbols or glyphs written on the walls on 3 sections, which was somewhat challenging and a nice change of pace. The bonus game in the CE version is connected to the main story which I like. You cannot have light without the dark, there cannot be good if there isn't evil, you cannot destroy until you create! Follow Kraixx back to his world and help him overturn the Watchers and restore the balance in this new game in the Amaranthine Voyage series - The Orb of Purity. One had nothing that you had to figure out, you just placed shapes in obvious places. You'll zip through portals and meet lots of people who end up standing there helplessly while you do absolutely everything, and while the consequences of failure are presented as very great indeed, I can't say you ever feel like anything going on is really that important. I love any game has a sci-fi theme and this one is right up my alley more so than the recent Amaranthine Voyage games.

  1. The Collector's Edition also has several Achievements to earn, and many of the inventory items have plus signs indicating some type of interaction is necessary before using the item. Total waste of money Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by Alenee from A solid fantasy game This was the first Eipix game that I played and to be honest it was the reason why I became interested in trying other games from them, too. Only you can restore balance between energies granting the planet Medea a second chance and save Earth too. Who among them is the villain?

  2. One big source of irritation for me was using the gauntlet you acquire early on to bring in crystal power by playing the same two minigames over and over again.

There were many moments in the game that we felt confused by plot-points that are disconnected, illogical and even somewhat contradictory. Kraixx has crossed through a portal to seek our help to save his world from doom caused by dark Harmonium energy that has gone awry.

  4. Overall, this was repetitive and marginal for me. You play a professor who assists her colleague when a stranger from another dimension arrives at the school. Had it been on graphics only, I wouldn't have given it that high, but the sound, especially the voice over scenes were excellent. The HOPs include a variety of types with some requiring that we find so many of a certain item where others are the type where we find items based on silhouette. We also have an interactive transporter type map that is located on the right side of the user interface area.

  5. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you will encounter: 1 Assemble the CCPP logo by dragging different tetris shapes into the individual letters.

You'll zip through portals and meet lots of people who end up standing there helplessly while you do absolutely everything, and while the consequences of failure are presented as very great indeed, I can't say you ever feel like anything going on is really that important.

  6. Follow Kraixx back to his world and help him overturn the Watchers and restore the balance in this new game in the Amaranthine Voyage series - The Orb of Purity. After formulating a cure for Kriaxx we receive a special gauntlet from him that will absorb both light and dark energy but, of course, we must play a mini-game in order to charge the gauntlet prior to use so it is basically another time filling gimmick. You can select from a choice of four modes of gameplay: Easy, Medium, Hard, and Custom. You soon discovered that there are mysterious dark harmonium forces lurking in the parallel world, and now that they have slowly leaked into our world — you need to stop them before it is too late.

I use to buy without even trying the demo. Unfortunately, this one was not fun for me and I couldn't wait to have the demo end. Hidden object scenes are prevalent but nothing fancy, and each area features three to four screens where you collect everything you need quickly and then have to blow through about four puzzles in a row to move on.

  8. The storyline is quite good and I really want to help Kraixx put his world in order. Of course with this being a game from my favorite game developer, I know that I am getting top quality in graphics and sound. I have another of this series and while it has been a while since I've played it, I do not recall having one mini game after the other and that is what this seems to have at least in the demo. One had nothing that you had to figure out, you just placed shapes in obvious places. If you choose the custom mode you can set the hint recharge time in a range from 10 to seconds and puzzle skips from 10 to seconds.

  9. We also have an interactive transporter type map that is located on the right side of the user interface area. The hidden object scenes are better, all of them are very interactive and they come in a nice variety of formats. After formulating a cure for Kriaxx we receive a special gauntlet from him that will absorb both light and dark energy but, of course, we must play a mini-game in order to charge the gauntlet prior to use so it is basically another time filling gimmick.

  10. I would almost buy the game just to see what it has for an ending, as though we couldn't guess. I'm not a mini game person and that just spoiled it for me. If I like the mini-games I am not as bored by these gimmicks but in some games they are rather a nuisance to complete when I need to get on with saving someone or something — lol.

  11. If you want something bright and fantastical but not too hard, you could do a lot worse than spending an afternoon on this game. Only for series completists. If you choose the custom mode you can set the hint recharge time in a range from 10 to seconds and puzzle skips from 10 to seconds.
