Elixir: The League of Immortality review (iOS / Universal)December 7, 2013
10 word description: Murder mystery puzzle adventure. 62 levels. 21 puzzles. 3 modes.
10 word review: Aesthetically pleasant mix of puzzles, hidden objects and item hunting.
You will like this if you enjoy: Point ‘n’ click adventures, hidden object games, casual puzzle games.
The good news: Presentation is very good, with high quality cut-scenes, graphics and interface. Good variety of puzzles; hidden object screens are clear and easy to navigate when zoomed in. Three modes to make the game as easy as you need it to be. Does everything right for genre fans.
The bad news: On the iPhone/iPod screen, accessing the inventory (bottom of the screen) will occasionally open up the Air Play control panel. The game doesn’t really do anything vastly different to make it stand out from other games of this genre.
Arcadelife verdict: In a popular and fairly prolifically populated genre, Elixir doesn’t do much to make its mark as a hugely innovative game, but it is very nice to look at, has plenty of diverse content and is a good, solid example of this type of casual puzzler. Fans of this kind of game will not be disappointed and newcomers to the genre could do a lot worse than trying this out as an introduction.
