Integrated Strategy Guide
The wicked Scarecrow has invaded Blake’s Mountain and kidnapped innocent children to perform the historical Red Moon Ceremony. Follow the trails, unravel secrets from the Healer’s past and bring back the lost children in League of Light: Wicked Harvest. As mentioned above, the story of missing children and an evil villain has been done countless times – and story wise, Wicked Harvest is not very exciting.
So you might wonder, what has saved this game from being just another mundane, predictable HOPA? The first thing that came to our minds is the game’s epic presentation. League of Light: Wicked Harvest has top-notch graphics and the very best animations in the industry. The characters are smoothly and excellently animated; they are also extremely well drawn and voiced. Most of the locations in Wicked Harvest are relatively dark in terms of lighting, still, we are stunned by each and every scene in the game due to its gorgeous artwork and amazing dimensions. The music is unobtrusive at the same time, really bring some excitement to the game.
The environment in League of Light: Wicked Harvest is obviously Halloween-inspired, especially with the Scarecrow and the pumpkins. The gamplay in League of Light: Wicked Harvest might not be supremely challenging or remarkably innovative, but the gameplay mechanics are very neat and nicely-crafted which makes the gaming experience a very absorbing one. Also, although we are not usually fond of cute helpers, we surprisingly found the baby scarecrow helper included in this game to be very cute. Apart from its standard ability, occasionally, you are also able to pick up tools and objects and equip it with these useful functions. As for the hidden object scenes and puzzles, they are all fun and exquisitely made just like we had expected – but nothing memorable there.
Finally, League of Light: Wicked Harvest is a little weak on the length and the bonus content. The main game took us just about 3.5 hours to complete an the two bonus chapters lasted 65 minutes combined. The other extra content is very thin, more or less the usual gallery items.
