After you press “play”, you’ll be prompted to choose one from the 4 different difficulty modes, namely casual, advanced, hard and custom settings. Different settings have a different set of features enabled or disabled. For instance, in casual mode, you’ll see sparkles on active areas as well as areas with hidden object puzzles; there is no wrong selection penalty; black-bar tips are enabled and the skip and hint recharge time is reduced. For custom settings, you can adjust the settings to one that you think is suitable to enough to give you a challenge and yet is not too difficult that you’ll be overly frustrated by it. If you choose hard mode and eventually find it a tad bit too hard, you can easily change the difficulty setting during the game to a much easier mode as well!
To play, you’ll need to know a few of indicators in this game. For instance, when you notice that your cursor is changed into a magnifying glass, this means that you can talk to someone or examine an area. The magnifying glass can appear in the world as well as in hidden object scenes. A hand will appear when you can interact with the world or take an item to use. If the hand appears during a hidden object scene, then you can drag and drop the item to the item that you think it can interact with, while if the hand appears while outside of a scene, the item you picked up will be stored in your inventory instead!
You can also obtain usable items by playing the hidden object scenes provided. In each scene, there are quite a lot of items for you to find and after you’ve found them all, one particular task-related item from the list will be stored in your inventory for your use. Every time you revisit a scene (at most twice), the items you’ll need to find are different though the scene is the same, making each playthrough interesting. You can also decide to skip the hidden object scene by playing 1 out of the 4 mini-games available, but well, Queen’s Tales: Sins of the Past is after all a hidden object game in essence, so it’s best to just play through the scenes!
If you have any problems with finding an item, you can easily click on the “hint” button on your right and it will help you to identify one random item on your list. However, this hint is also available outside of hidden object scenes and when you press the “hint” button in that condition, it will help you find areas where interactions are available instead! In addition, you’ll also obtain a phoenix pet earlier on in your adventure, while you are tricked by the Elven King. Use your phoenix pet to destroy dark magical areas on each new location you visit in order to uncover an important area in the location.
The items you’ve collected in your inventory can then be taken out to use on various other interactive items in the world. Your cursor will changed a gears-like form to indicate that you must use an item from your inventory in order to interact with the item in question. Using which item for the interaction can be a real brain-cracker in some other game, but in Queen’s Tales: Sins of the Past, this is rather easy to figure out, granted that you may need some help from time to time. They can also be used to interact with other items in the inventory to craft a complete item before you can use them.
There’s also a task list that records what you need to do during your adventure. Most of the time, you’ll need to travel between locations to complete your tasks. To travel, you can move by selecting areas when the navigation cursor appears. You can also teleport by using portals after you’ve obtained the map from the Elven King’s lair.
The most interesting aspect in Queen’s Tales: Sins of the Past is its mini-games and extras! The game offers plenty of mini-games, such as completing embroidery with different colored threads, match 2 of the same symbols with the one indicated by the game, mini-mahjong game, and many more! If you encountered any trouble, there’s a “skip” button that can help you to auto-solve the mini-game. However, in order to use that button, you’ll have to wait for it to recharge first!
There are also extras that you can enjoy once you’ve completed the prerequisite of the game. For instance, by collecting tarot cards while you’re exploring the world in-game, you can then use them for fortune-telling in the extras section after you’ve completed the card collection. So, you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled while playing the game. Furthermore, after you’ve completed your collections, you can even play match-3 games with them. Awesome, right?
Let’s not forget about achievements as well! In Queen’s Tales: Sins of the Past, you can obtain achievement for solving mini-games, hidden object scenes and puzzles and etc. They are not too hard to acquire and you should already have most of them by the time you’ve finished the game!
