Like the first game, Bridge to Another World: The Others is a fantasy HOPA game; although the story in this sequel is completely separated from the one in the first game. We were not particularly thrilled by the concept of the plot, as it is pretty similar to the ones we have played before. Despite that, the developer unfolds the otherwise ho-hum storyline in such an interactive and unique way. At times, The Others plays like an interactive storybook, with lots of interesting actions to perform and fascinating characters to interact with.
Still, the majority of the gameplay is fairly straightforward. We had no trouble working our way through the adventure part of the game, the interactive map was rarely used. On the other hand, the hidden object scenes are more complicated – most of the scenes are progressive, all extremely entertaining. The puzzles range from easy to slightly difficult, none of them are exceptionally challenging.
All of these well-executed game components are accompanied by a solid presentation. The graphics are colorful, bright and can be a little cartoonish; at the same time, the locations are undeniably beautiful. In addition, the music is magical and fits the game well, while the voice overs are simply great.
Bridge to Another World: The Others Collector’s Edition featured the standard gallery items, as well as a strategy guide, achievements, well-hidden collectibles and replayable hidden object scenes and puzzles. The bonus chapter has a fair 50 minute length, serves as a continuation to the 4-hour long main game.
