If you are fan of mysteries and love to solve them, there’s a new game out there that you have to download. It’s called Coastal Hill: Seek Mystery and it’s loaded with a ton of games and challenges that you have to work your way through in order to solve a mystery. Backing up a bit, the background to the game is that the town you used to live in has now been taken over by dark forces determined to destroy it. You have returned and now have the challenge of figuring out what has happened so you can stop it.
Designed with amazing graphics and sound effects, Coastal Hill is kind of a digital getaway of sorts, where you become the main character who travels back to their hometown. You get to choose your character and you even get to dress them up the way you want, which adds to the immersive nature of the game. Once you’ve created your character you can start playing. The app allows you to move about the town to see the devastation, while you go in search of clues and hints that will help you make sense of it all. Along the way, you will come across some of the inhabitants, who will have challenges for you to complete.
Every so often you will see some creatures that you need to fend off, so some brute force will be necessary at times, but most of the game will center around collections of hidden objects and Match 3 mysteries. There is no set path or order in which to play, you set your own course and play at your own pace. As you play the story will unfold, letting you in further and allowing you to get a deeper understanding of what the issues are and possible where to go next to find your next clue.
Coastal Hill is loaded with over 1000 quests and 35 locations with plethora of objects that are creatively hidden from sight. Crystals are the main in-game currency. Gathering collectibles gives you energy and tokens. The energy and weapons are what get drained when you get killed, so you definitely want to make sure you kill the monsters before they get to you, which can take some time and practice. You may find yourself making some in-app purchases for crystals before you get the hang of it.
There are up to 7 different types of game modes to choose from, which makes the experience all the more enjoyable and suited to you. The best part of this game is that you don’t need to be hooked up to the internet to play, which makes it completely mobile.
Currently you can hookup with Facebook friends through the app, but it would be nice to extend that further to any player.
If you are looking for an unforgettable adventure from the comfort of your couch, install Coastal Hill and become a hero!
