Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of The Legend of Crystal Valley from Sandlot Games. The adventure game puts players in the role of Eve, a young woman who must unravel the mystery of her estranged father's disappearance while exploring the fantasy world of Crystal Valley.

Here's an excerpt from the review:

Crystal Valley is loaded with sounds both ambient and from a melodious musical soundtrack. In some areas special short melodies or sound effects can be heard. These sounds help define the surreal atmosphere this game creates. I truly enjoyed the background music and feel it enhanced the experience of the game world. The melodies or effects are short and continually repeat while in that zone, which in a couple of cases, I found very annoying. Annoying enough that I actually brought the volume to zero when interacting in these areas. Luckily this happened only a couple of times. In complete contrast to those areas I couldnít stand, there were some where the melody was so appealing that I returned to it just to listen again!

Puzzles are challenging without being daunting. Generally the components needed to solve a puzzle can be found in the zone that you are currently in. If you didnít manage to pick up some necessary item there is a way to get back to do it. Some examples of puzzle actions include interacting with an object in the environment using an item from the inventory, pressing a sequence of buttons, using switches or dials to open or unlock a door or some other item, or finding the pieces necessary to build a map, diagram or suit of armor. Objects can be hidden pretty well or might not be available until after you help someone.
