Unique Adventure Game

Heartland Deluxe Review
Review by Sara
Heartland Deluxe strikes more fear into the hearts of its players than just about any other casual adventure game. Expect to be a bit frightened by this mystery game.
The plot of the game does a marvelous job at keeping the paranormal intrigue going by revealing very little with each new component unlocked, including a series of cryptic tapes with muffled recordings of test subject and tester. Spooky flashes of vague figures and an overwhelming headache slowly push you towards your ultimate fate, the only tragedy is just how soon that fate approaches.
Shorter Than Average
There are only a limited number of tasks you must complete that lead to the finale which is reached rather abruptly, not to mention a cliffhanger presumably in anticipation of another installment of Heartland.
Fun If You Like Being Scared
This aside, this game is a pleasure to play. The graphics are lovely and complement the mysterious mood of the game rather well. Random noises, music, and visual cuts are used to inspire fear in the player – a task at which is fully succeeded without being cheesy or lame. Scrolling follows cursor movement which is a nice break from the typical adventure game which does not feature such elaborate multi-dimensional graphics.
Conclusion - A Free Game With a Great Theme
Aside from the length, which is admittedly a major detractor from the overall appeal, this game is recommended to all audiences as it is superbly well done and appropriately priced.
