Hidden object games can be an entertaining, challenging way to spend a little gaming time with and the Windows Store has several quality offerings. Tales from Dragon Mountain: The Strix hopes to join the ranks of these quality games and to add to the game's appeal, it is today's myAppFree deal.
Normally priced at $5.99, for the remainder of the day you can pick up Tales from Dragon Mountain free. The game is a universal title and the deal will include the Windows Phone version of the game, which supports low memory devices. I've only spent a short time exploring Tales from Dragon Mountain: The Strix and the game comes across as a well drawn up, formidable hidden object title.
The back story with Tales from Dragon Mountain: The Strix has you following the main character Mina on a trip to her family's estate in the town of Pozoj. Dreams of her grandmother's house haunt Mina and she is determined to search Pozoj for clues as to why she is having these premonitions. Along the way she must face and defeat the evil spirit Strix and save the day.
Some of the key features of Tales from Dragon Mountain: The Strix includes:
- Twenty-one puzzles to solve that span six chapters
- Encounter ten mythical creatures as you search for clues
- Thirty-two unique fantasy locations to explore
Graphics are nicely drawn up and the mechanics of the game do not come across as cumbersome. First impressions of the game are good and we can see why Tales from Dragon Mountain: The Strix is pulling down a 4 Star rating in the Windows Store.
The Windows 8 game normally runs $5.99 but for the remainder of the day, you can pick up Tales from Dragon Mountain: The Strix free through the myAppFree Deal. As an added bonus, as a universal app, the Windows Phone version is also free.
If you like hidden object puzzle games or just are in the hunt to save a few bucks on an entertaining game, Tales from Dragon Mountain is worth a try.
