Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart


Artifex Mundi have released their first game onto Xbox One and we have to say, we think it is brilliant! 

There has been a long tradition of point and click games when it comes to PC gaming, n fact those who have tried to release this genre of game onto consoles, haven’t always done well.  It is hard to grab people’s attention and keep it on consoles, most of the games and gamers seem to like fast paced action.

ch1This is all changing though and gamers horizons are expanding, right now there seems to be a huge influx of point and click games to consoles.  these games can be incredibly captivating and interesting.

Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart places you in the role of a museum owner and you start off accepting a delivery for your new pirate exhibit, with the help of your daughter.  In no time at all you find yourself on a quest to save said daughter from the clutches of the seemingly evil pirate.

ch2Your journey will take you to Skull Island where puzzles await you along with riddles and the need to find objects to help you solve them.  This hunt will take the form in missing object mini games, or even games of Mahjong.  You will need to brew grog, concoct potions and appease the haunted souls that you encounter along the way, all the while trying your best to find where this dastardly character has whisked your little girl off to! 

Great fun, Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart is the kind of game you can just pick up and play at any time, simple controls allow you to explore the world before you quickly and efficiently.  It wont take you months to finish the game, it will keep you challenged for some time though and keep your grey matter thinking as you try to solve each of the puzzles! 

We loved playing Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart and only wish it was maybe a little longer, although achievements and trophies will allow or some replay value.
