for only $ 13.99 USD!Hello there. Today we are reviewing newest (as always) exclusive Big Fish game - Drawn: Trail of Shadows Collector's Edition. This is already third part of Drawn™ game series. First and second games was named as Drawn™: The Painted Tower and Drawn™: The Dark Flight. But us usual it's better to see once than hear a hundred times. So let's watch gameplay video.
Interesting and unusual. One of the strangest things - Drawn 3: Trail of Shadows is pure Adventure game, it doesn't including Hidden Object elements and contains only a few kinds of puzzles. Wonderful adventures in the painted worlds is all that you've got in this game.
In Drawn 3: Trail of Shadows game your goal is to save the painted worlds, created by the genius boy, that you were exploring in the first and second parts of the game. For those of you, who missed previous Drawn games, I will shortly tell about their story.
In Drawn®: The Painted Tower ™ happened your first visit into the world of Drawn. You were exploring the Painted Tower trying to solve challenging puzzles on your way to find and save the girl named Iris before it's too late. She was trapped on the top edge of this magical tower.
Every tower's floor was locked by the curse, so it wasn't easy to overwhelm all obstacles on your way to Iris. Moreover, on every floor you were entering the completely different world, each of them were really impressive.Your time was limited - mysterious darkness was approaching the tower, trying to consume it. Game was beautiful and unusual, a real break-through for Adventure games of that time (September 2009).
A year later, in September 2010 second Drawn game was released. The game name is Drawn®: Dark Flight ™. It continues the story of the painted worlds, with the same visuals and atmosphere. After escaping the painted tower in the finale of the first game Iris's troubles didn't ends. A princess was pursued by evil king and your task was to stop him and to save the princes. You were overcoming various obstacles to break through to princess.
Exploring the Kingdom of Stonebriar was really exciting. Your archenemy, as in the first part, were the shadows that prowl its streets of the kingdom and threatening to consume it completely. You were bringing the light to the shadows, destroying them. Just like in the first game, you were meeting various characters, some of them were your friends, others tried to stop you.
To restore light and peace in the kingdom and bring a future queen back to a people your main objective was to solve the mysteries of the three beacons. Game was even more interesting then the first one - not the single tower but the whole kingdom laid before you. And now, one more year later, third Drawn game - Drawn 3: Trail of Shadows was released.
Graphically Drawn 3: Trail of Shadows is even better than previous parts. This third part opening the gate of unknown for us: we will know more about the creation of this painted world. His creator - a genius boy, that painted the whole world and bring it to life with his art magic. We will know more about the mysterious darkness, that was the threat to the Drawn world. Trail of Shadows is the prequel of the first and second games. Now you are acting many years before the events of The Painted Tower and Dark Flight.
Shadows are scattering all paintings and destroying them, trying to stop the boy, that created Drawn 3: Trail of Shadows world, from his godlike achievement. So you must find those shadows on the paintings and destroy them to save a boy with the power to create painted worlds. It won't be easy, byt if you fails - whole Kingdom of Stonebriar will be destroyed and the events of The Painted Tower and The Dark Flight won't happen. Ever.
Drawn 3: Trail of Shadows game is unusual and, if I may say, very kind. You are traveling through the beautiful kingdom, exploring it and relishing. Storyline is interesting, gameplay isn't boring too. Collector's edition of Drawn: Trail of Shadows includes bout two hours of bonus gameplay, additional artwork (very nice pictures) and screensavers. It isn't much, but as far the Usual edition of the game isn't available, we have no choice, aren't we?
What I may say in the end? There is two category of people: first likes those creative games, second - no. I belong to the first category and love this beautiful piece of art. So if you liked what you saw in the video and screenshots of Drawn 3: Trail of Shadows Collector's Edition - play it, and you won't regret it. Good luck!
