November 24, 2009: Dekovir Entertainment has announced the release of Hidden Magic, a game that combines Hidden Object tasks and magic battles. The player needs to find necessary ingredients to cast spells and defeat the enemies. The battles alternate with puzzles and more relaxed hidden object tasks, which add new spells to the player’s magic book. Besides the unique gameplay, Hidden Magic is remarkable for good graphics, which makes the search process quite challenging, and for special effects of magic battles.
Actually, Hidden Magic is a combination of several game genres: hidden objects, adventure, strategy, puzzle, arcade and action. The plot of the game is the following: two magicians lived happily together on the edge of the woods, but one dreadful night a troop of goblins kidnapped one of them. The player chooses whether to play as the sorcerer or the sorceress and starts on a journey to rescue the kidnapped spouse. The only clue is the scattered map fragments left by the goblins, and the only weapon is magic (the hero takes magic ingredients, the cauldron, and the book of spells).
On the way to the castle of a Demon the player has to fight various enemies. In the course of a battle it is possible to cast spells using the cauldron and numerous ingredients arranged on the shelves. Below the shelves there are the lists of required items (e.g. Meteor Shower: grasshopper, black spider, gold nugget…9 items left), and the player must pick the necessary ones.
Sometimes the battles alternate with vague visions of magical places – a certain picture shows through the thick fog and breaks into pieces. The player should work out the puzzle to get to that place and complete a hidden object task to add more powerful spells to the book.
As for the graphics, all the sceneries and items are depicted in detail and thus contribute to the reality of the game. But the special effects certainly deserve special mention: each spell is shown with unique visual and sound effects. The perfect examples of special effects are the sparks of Thunderbolt, the flame of Fireball or the disastrous Meteor Shower.
