    Game is interesting and has beautiful graphics. No glitches and I am almost finished with the game. Transportable map. Varied hidden object scenes. Support was very helpful even when the problem turned out to be with my Internet provider. No complaints, only compliments to Artifex Mundi.

    Another great AM game! However, it's on the shorter side and there isn't a bonus game. Great storyline and puzzles. It all entwined nicely and made sense. I loved how you play 2 players at once. Definitely kept your mind invested in the game during gameplay. Plenty of HO scenes as well. I've taken a star off for no bonus game and the length..

    Loved this game! Beautiful graphics. No time penalties for HOS. No penalties for skipping mini-games. Great story line.

    The artifex mundi games out of all the games i play are the most challenging. That is why these are the best. Just wish they would offer free games or more of them on play pass. I have already played all that are available.

    Another enjoyable game under the Artifex Mundi banner. Short puzzling and no bonus, but interesting adding other characters to interact with and a mixture of puzzles. Well worth the lower price paid than most of their games.

    SPOILER ALERT FOR BEGINNING OF PERSIAN NIGHTS!! I have been playing nothing but Artifex Munda games for about two weeks now (just discovered them) and I have been relatively impressed. I’ve played four so far. This review can stand for all four: Eventide: Slavic Fable, Eventide 2, Queen’s Quest, and Persian Nights. First, the artwork has been uniformly exceptional. Great depth of color, and a positively terrific assortment of incredibly well-defined objects in the hidden object puzzles. Second, for the most part, the stories have been fun. Slavic Fable was unexpectedly wonderful. I usually play puzzle/escape games like the “Room” series. I am playing for the puzzles, not cute stuff. But Slavic Fable had characters that actually interacted with me. Very fun. The other two were fine as well. Persian Nights, however, put me over the line. It has a character that I heal and help. For most of the game, that character accompanies me in what I can only guess is supposed to be my “quest”. But the puzzles seem to mostly rely on me moving a small piece of lumber, or trying to reach a high shelf, or lighting a torch, and my companion literally stands (with his back to me in one completely infuriating sequence!) and does NOTHING. The seriously simple tasks (for which much searching is required for a ridiculously arbitrary scattering of “essential” items), combined with a companion that only occasionally interacts (and then only to say the most pompous things) and the rest of the time is just a golem standing and watching me struggle to find a match or pick up a small piece of wood, well that just got to me. And then I thought about it, and the people with whom I am near, for the most part in these four games, stand five feet away from my character while I plunder the environment for the only things that can beat the baddie, or help me escape the situation. I get what the story seems to require, but I have a problem with completely illogical and, IMHO, bizarre choices that seem to just be “there” as puzzles to fill space because no one came up with something that made sense and moved the story along. I have also noticed in just four games that several puzzles in different games are the same except for the image attached to the interactive behavior of the game. The puzzle seemed, to me, to be pretty much the same. I questioned, also, how I was right at the climactic confrontation at one point, and as the defeating blow was about to fall, I was presented with a lengthy and complex hidden object puzzle. That kind of pacing problem killed the story part of it for me. I found it insulting that more thought didn’t go into these aspects of the game. I mean c’mon guys, why does a character exist that does nothing but exposition, and how is it feasible that the evil dark magician waits quietly while I kick his keister, his eyes spewing violent violet glowing ectoplasm? In a short time, I’ve come to expect more from your company. Great artwork, though. David

    Persian Nights: Sands of Wonders. I have only just started playing the game. I will be back when finished. Once again the game was good. For what some of the games cost you would think that there might be loaded. This was on sale so for what the game had such as puzzles, story, and graphics I could not pay what you were asking so I waited for you to put it on sale.

    Artifex mundi games are the best, I love playing them and really look forward to new ones. The story on this is great, graphics great, gameplay excellent but it feels very short. Such a shame! Good if you can get it on sale.

    Fun storyline but games were a bit too easy.

    I liked this game but it could've been so much better. I just feel AM have lowered their standards, their attention to making every game the best it could possibly be and only 12 mini games - not good at all!! It was also very short. I've got no issue paying for games but I'd advise to get this at a discount because it's simply not at the same standard as previous games so it's not worth full price. I also wasn't a fan of talking to the prince. Shame.... this had such potential.
