Lucia and her brother Ulf lived and worked in a pub after their parents disappeared and their guardian died. However, Ulf’s life changed radically when he turned 18. He turned revealed to be a werewolf, and he was kidnapped by a witch and taken to an undisclosed place that same night. Lucia is willing to put her life on the line to save her brother, who has always looked after her. He would have done the same for her, she is certain. For the first time in her life, adventures await her in exotic areas full of unknown hazards, after many years of isolation from the outside world. To return Ulf, you must overcome numerous challenges, meet new allies and opponents, and seek out unexpected solutions in Legendary Tales: Stolen Life.
We stumbled upon Legendary Tales: Stolen Life while continuing our new obsession with Hidden Object games, and we are very pleased we did. This has been a surprisingly enjoyable HO game, and we are grateful that we were able to complete it. You take on the role of Lucia, a young woman who runs a modest pub with her brother Ulf. A gang of thugs leads by a witch storm your tavern in search of your brother, who turns out to be a werewolf. They subdue him and drag him away. It’s Lucia’s job to track them down and save her brother!
The presentation of this Legendary Tales: Stolen Life was our initial impression. In comparison to other HO games we’ve played, the cut sequences looked fantastic. It won’t blow your mind, but it will immerse you in the story and the scene. There are collectibles to be found, as well as lore pages to help you acquire a better understanding of the worldbuilding, which we loved. Another thing we enjoyed about this HO game was how it felt like a point-and-click adventure. Unlike earlier games in which all of the objects and tools you find are only helpful on one screen, this one requires you to carry objects through many sections. You may have to hold an object for a long period before you can use it, and some items have several uses. It was greatly appreciated, and the puzzle-solving components were very enjoyable.
In terms of puzzles, the Legendary Tales: Stolen Life game had a lot of them. Of course, we had to skip a tiny portion since we were trapped or were simply annoyed by them. However, we can confidently state that this is the first HO game in which we have never been stumped by a task. All of the directions were quite obvious, but some of them baffled us because we had been working on them for so long, or they were puzzles that we knew how to do but didn’t want to. Thankfully, the skip option is available to enable you to skip over them without interfering with the plot.
The issue we ran into in Legendary Tales: Stolen Life is the same one we run across in other HO games: it’s often difficult to identify which things are interactable and which aren’t. Although we didn’t see this issue too much in this game, it is still present. We’ve all been lost and don’t know where to go, and thankfully the game offers a strategy guidance button to get you back on course. Even though we only needed it once in Legendary Tales: Stolen Life, having it on hand was still beneficial.
