If I had my way, the current batch of HOPA developers would take a look at some of the older games that have very high reviews and then perhaps go back to the basics of these excellent older games. Bring on more. It's the home stretch at school, and this is total war. The HO scenes are good, not too hard, not too easy, and they each have a HO game within the scene which is different and fun. Thanks to Puzzle Labs for their incredible brilliance. But then, it is just the first installment in the series. Really enjoyed this one. And it is a little short. The color scheme makes striking use of cyan, as per the game title. Hope we will have more like it!

I didn't get why all the statues had pointed ears and wings Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Tikatoy from Original story, striking graphics I was drawn in to this game from the beginning cut scene that set the story up. The game is well written with no glitches. There are clever implementation else where, such as when you have to complete a puzzle on your map. The mini-games were innovative, with multi-step jigsaws and logic-type screens to light up with various lanterns. I really enjoy futuristic stories and this game does not disappoint. The game play was great. Took me a minute to realize I had finished it. The scenes are rich with detail. It is not terribly difficult, and the hint system is very useful if you do get stuck. But, I am replaying it again! Add to that the fact that much of the in-game text obviously wasn't written by a native English writer.

It's the home stretch at school, and this is total war. On to the next one! Thanks to Puzzle Labs for their incredible brilliance. The tasks are easy enough but they don't really make a lot of sense. But, I am replaying it Matches and Matrimony: A Pride and Prejudice Tale I just wish when you replay it would jumble up the mini games or change in someway. Hope we will have more like it! The reason I only gave it 3 stars is that it is very short, and the ending is VERY unsatisfying and abrupt. The color scheme makes striking use of cyan, as per the game title. The game play was great. A mixture of HO and puzzles, very much my thing. I had to watch it again before I realized they weren't going to tell you more. Is anyone who they Ciyy to be? Sounds and music are subtle not annoying.

The problem is that as you go through the story the other tasks you have to complete don't really fit in. I like that the scenes are not cluttered, so the frustration level is low when you need to find an object. The mini-games were innovative, with multi-step jigsaws and logic-type screens to light up with various lanterns. Discuss with other players! Hope this continues and that the premium games are not the trend. The puzzles are unique in that there are many interactive areas, with puzzle-within-puzzle challenges. Puzzles were fun to do and got you thinking. It's hard to explain but the game misses the mark in so many ways. The only little problem was the end. Rated 5 out of 5 by Taintedfury from Phenomenon: City of Cyan From the starting this game i was truly impressed as it included a strategy guide which was nice surprise for a SE version. There are clever implementation else where, such as when you have to complete a puzzle on your map. You know who you are, you dirty cutscene skippers. The tasks are easy enough but they don't really make a lot of sense.

Add to that the fact that much of the in-game text obviously wasn't written by a native English writer. The hints are very good and the HO were fun to find. The scenery was colorful and so beautiful, if not always as sharp as today's graphics. The only downfall Phenomenn: the game is the rather abrupt Phneomenon:. Monica, now a magically babelicious redhead, is back in Phenomenon: City of Cyan City after receiving a mysterious note that her mother may still be alive. Monica's voice actor is the worst offender and, you guessed it, she has the vast majority of the lines. I enjoyed it so much I may just play it again for the sheer beauty of it. Is anyone who they claims to be? The Hidden Object scenes were interactive and included a scene-within-the-scene feature. I had to watch it again before I realized they weren't going to tell you Hotel Ever After: Ellas Wish Collectors Edition. Not only are the HOS creative the items are not always in your face easy to find. But then, it is just the first installment in the series.


I had to watch it again before I realized they weren't going to tell you more. I recommend it highly. Otherwise, it was beautifully made, and the HOGs were good, a little more interesting with the addition of built-in extra puzzles in the time function. Wish more like this out there like this one. Unique Rating Phenomenon: City of Cyan Review I'm waist deep in the semester, waist deep in homework, and waist deep in annoying roommates. There does seem to be a lot of travelling for sometimes little pay-off. This is the first game since Enlightenus that interested me enough to read all the sequences, read all the journal entries and really study the whole game. I especially liked a unique puzzle that actively involved the map. Although there is a map, it does not allow travel. The puzzles themselves were a little funky,but at least they tried something different. There was quite a bit of going back and forth but the game map was exceptionally helpful with this. The only downfall in the game is the rather abrupt ending. Phenomenon: City of Cyan is great for all those gamers who couldn't care less about the story and who just want to find stuff.

6 thoughts on “Phenomenon: City of Cyan

  1. I love the blend of fantasy and sci-fi and although I generally prefer the lushly hand-painted style of art, I really thought the crisp visuals fit in well with the setting. The scenes are rich with detail. The problem is that as you go through the story the other tasks you have to complete don't really fit in. Otherwise the game leaves much to be desired.

  2. It's the home stretch at school, and this is total war. Puzzles were fun to do and got you thinking. For those who actually do follow stories and read in-game text, you have better options. The reason I only gave it 3 stars is that it is very short, and the ending is VERY unsatisfying and abrupt. It seems that 20 years ago, Monica's mom, Eve Dipp, gave Monica a fantastic-looking necklace and then proceeded to overreach as all good scientists eventually do, blowing up her secret lair and causing strange things to happen in surrounding Cyan City.

  3. Moral of the story? Hope we will have more like it! Sadly, the game ended like dropping off a cliff.

  4. Great story line, vibrant colors, fabulous puzzle within puzzle. The story's more absurd than most, and the voice acting is ear-bleedingly bad. There was a great variety of fun puzzles, but nothing too difficult.

  5. Does she live on Ranch Dipp? It seems that 20 years ago, Monica's mom, Eve Dipp, gave Monica a fantastic-looking necklace and then proceeded to overreach as all good scientists eventually do, blowing up her secret lair and causing strange things to happen in surrounding Cyan City. I really enjoyed it; I liked the creative puzzles which I mostly was able to solve.

  6. There was a great variety of fun puzzles, but nothing too difficult. Although the ending was abrupt, the developers left it open for sequels. Bring on more.
