I've been playing Pahelika: Revelations (it's discussed in the GB Casual Games forum here). I haven't consulted a walkthrough this much since RHEM 4. lol

If you're the type of gamer who relishes tough puzzles, even though this is considered a casual game, you should give it a try.

Don't let the purple sparkles lead you to think this game is easy! The purple sparkles are mere purple frosting on the devious layers of puzzle toughness. evil

Pahelika Revelations is a sequel to a previous casual game: Pahelika Secret Legends. You don't need to play Secret Legends in order to enjoy Revelations, though after Revelations, if you're curious about the story, you might want to go back and try Secret Legends to learn more.

Meh, the problem with demos is that they end.

I enjoyed the game. I did get stuck for a bit trying to get into the almirah. During which time
I grabbed over 100 pieces of paper to see if there was some hidden document underneath. There wasn't.

BTW, just to clarify, casual and free are not interchangeable, correct?

Right! Some great free games are real adventures, like the King's Quest and Space Quest remakes from Infamous Adventures and original games from people on the Adventure Game Studio forum.

So what makes it a casual game then? Cause I'm actually in a need for a good, tough puzzle adventure smile

Tomer -- the first game in the series was adventure-lite -- this second game is closer to adventure. It's right at the edge of the genre definition. The environments aren't as large as in (for instance) the RHEM games.

Anyone like Winfrey who makes it through the game -- I'm curious what you think of it.

ok, I just bought it, despite my effort to delay it smile
Will let you know soon what I think.
It's annoying that there's no way to avoid the "taxes" when you buy it! Or was there, and I missed it?

I don't remember offhand. I pay taxes online so much nowadays (New York is very aggressive about it) that it's unremarkable to me.

Well, so far so good, I just arrived to the
Click to reveal..
Sage.


That's the first time I'm really stuck.
Click to reveal..
Can't find the right door, and I hope it ain't gonna be a sequence of right doors I need to pick, cause I can't see how to figure out those strange symbols above them


It also took me a while to find
Click to reveal..
The hidden button in the tower, where all the portals are.


But other than that I don't find the game extremely challenging. I find it harder to locate things on the screen (what I don't consider to be a very big intellectual challenge) And I have to disagree with the comparison to Rhem :-\
1. I don't get any Rhem vibes.
2. I find the puzzles of much lesser quality, generally, and definitely different from the super-logic-based puzzles of Rhem.
3. The whole sparkly thing reminds one it's a casual game... I can't say I like the genre a lot!

However, I am enjoying it... smile

Hi Tomer -- that's great that you're in. The comparison with RHEM 4 is that I've been forced to use a walkthrough frequently, just as I ended up doing in RHEM 4. The gameworld in Pahelika isn't as large. A soft hint for the door puzzle, if you want one:

The developers are based in India.


If anyone else has played both RHEM 4 and Pahelika Revelations, though, I am curious as to how you would compare the puzzles in each game. Is a tough puzzle simply a tough puzzle? How much difference does it make if the parts of the puzzle are spread out through a larger gameworld, rather than close at hand? Should the entire gameworld be part of the puzzle?
