Date: 18 Jan 2013, tested on HTC One
Dark Arcana: The Carnival - it is a very interesting quest for Android, combining a large set of mini-puzzles, tasks and scenes with the search items. In this game we go in search of a missing young woman, who has not returned from a visit to one of the attractions at the ongoing fair.
Engaged in developing a game studio G5 Entertainment, is already immediately suggests that this is a very high quality in terms of graphics and plot product. Behind the studio more than a dozen interesting quests, review some of them you can read on our site, for example, from the Deep Nightmares and Letters from Nowhere 2 .
GameplayThe game's plot revolves around a young detective (female), who will go in search of the missing woman. Investigation lead detectives to the discovery of the other world and the legend of the mystical mirror connecting our worlds.
The game has a very high-quality graphics with lots of inserts 3D-animation. In addition, the whole environment of the game like a living: doors creaking, water overflows, etc. All these elements create a mystical and sometimes very scary atmosphere.
If you approach the Dark Arcana: The Carnival as a game, then we have another very high quality quest, which is equally linked logic puzzles, mini puzzles and scenes with the search items. All this is carried smoothly through the story, and none of the elements of the game does not have time to get bored.
Examples of puzzles can be seen in the screenshots, it makes little sense to describe. One can only say that the complexity of the game balanced, and there are few moments where you can get stuck for a long time, but easy game to name just will not work. In impassable situations you can always use a hint, which will point to the object.

- Excellent localization of game;
- About 50 different locations;
- 18 hidden object scenes and 28 mini-puzzles;

Summary. Dark Arcana: Secret of the Fair - is atmospheric and interesting game for Android, which will appeal to fans of classic quests, and those who like to look for items. The only thing that we are somewhat disappointed, it's the presence of advertising, even after we bought the full version of the game (advertising is not in the game, and in the menu).
