Lost Grimoires has rapidly become one of our favorite new series. We applaud the developers’ efforts to innovate the gameplay and take advantage of the current generation of tablet capabilities. The diversity of minigames, especially how the mazes were more than just picking a corridor; gem match being part of the alchemy, making it more fascinating than just putting stuff in a cauldron, and the range of characters interacting and assisting each other were all things we enjoyed. People who are big fans of the HOPs may be upset because they aren’t as prominent in the game. Our biggest complaint was that the cut sections were choppy, and redownloading didn’t help. The voice acting was mediocre at best. There isn’t a bonus chapter either, but because we bought it at a bargain, we don’t feel cheated. The puzzles were also too easy, so they didn’t annoy us as we worked our way through the entire game. The plot is superior to the first game in the Lost Grimoires series. There were some new games that we’ve never seen previously, which was exciting. We wish there were more objectives to complete during the game instead of merely gathering roses. We also didn’t enjoy how much voice acting there was compared to how much playing there was. Hopefully, the developers will address these difficulties in future updates and add more games to the Lost Grimoires series.
