JohnBNow here's something you don't see every day: an adventure/hidden object game that tries to tell a story. A real story. And succeeds. Not only does Elixir of Immortality know how to weave an intriguing plot, it knows how to do it with pictures, setting, and presentation instead of loads of words. You won't find blocks of text or terrible voice acting in this game. All that's to be had is a delicious tale of intrigue, a lot of fantastic mini-games, and scenery so packed with so much mystery you'll want to wade in and start messing around with things yourself.

Elixir of ImmortalityIt all starts with a cloaked figure, a "hired hand", and a cliff. Forced to drink the elixir of immortality, the poor lad downs it and is immediately shot, proving his potion to be a failure. Now, you, the detective, are the new hired hand, and as the game begins, you're thrown in a dripping cellar with no light as the doors are sealed shut. Will you be the next to meet your fate on the cliff?

So, let's get out of here, shall we? You think you saw a lantern in the boat, so move the cursor to the sparkling location and click it to enter a hidden object scene. Elixir of Immortality makes great use of sub-zones within scenes, allowing you to peer deeper into portions of the environment, filling out the world and providing lots of additional puzzles to complete. The game comes with what could possibly the best feature of any hidden object game: a magnifying glass that will show you all the clickable hotspots on the screen. Calling that "useful" is like calling pizza "kinda tasty".

You'll spend most of your time moving back and forth between areas looking for puzzles to solve and hidden object scenes to search through. These sections are more adventure-centric and encourage you to experiment with inventory items (found during the hidden object portions) to open doors, crank gears, move blocks of stone, and more. Elixir of Immortality is very creative with inventory item usage, and this part comes forward as the central mechanic in the game, leaving the object finding and mini-games as secondary bonuses.

Elixir of ImmortalityAnalysis: Elixir of Immortality is a story-driven adventure at heart, not a hidden object game. The meat of the experience comes from soaking in the thick layers of intrigue, rolling around in mystery like it's your job. And it kinda is, seeing as how you're a detective and all. Not only are you curious as to what's going on in this strange castle, you're pretty darn motivated to uncover the truth, because if you don't, you'll find out how un-immortal you are.

As far as the gameplay goes, I was immensely pleased to see the focus shifted away from object finding to inventory and mini-game puzzles. Sure, finding a pair of pliers in a messy scene is fun, but doing something purposeful with said pliers is even cooler. And when you do put them to use and an awesome mini-game about shifting bits of a key to match the tumblers in a lock appears, it's a little slice of sunshine and lollipops in the dim world that is Elixir of Immortality.

What is possibly the game's only downside is length. Four hours is an average completion time, give or take a bit. While the game doesn't seem short by any means (the length feels about right), I'd rather have a four hour game of well-integrated awesome than a seven hour game of "meh". Vogat Interactive, the same folks who created Reincarnations: Awakening, knows how to avoid the latter.

Elixir of Immortality puts on a fantastic show. From the wonderful scenery art to the suspenseful tale of mad science and cloaked figures, it's one of those rare games that takes hold of your curiosity and pulls you along until you're staring at the end credits.

Totally and completely stuck trying to get into the castle. The Botanist gave me half of her heart medallion, I have a mask from the statue, and a loaded gun with a silver bullet. No matter where I go, nothing is working to give me the gears in order to raise the bridge to the castle, this is getting quite frustrating. I'm hoping that by posting this I'll sort it out within minutes of playing again, we'll see.

if you're trying to get into the castle there's something on the screen to the front door that you're missing... just keep hovering around the screen and you'll find it.

I've just played the demo of this game and want to buy it (mac version) BUT something weird happens with the sound. It just stops after about 10-15 minutes of play. If you quit and start up again, it comes back. Any ideas how to fix this?

[Please contact Big Fish Customer Support about this. They will be able to help you work through the issue:

You have to go to the physicist to get the other 1/2 of the heart, but you'll need to do a couple of tasks before you get that piece, which involve the gun with the loaded bullet. The piece, by the way, is hanging on the right wall of the physicist's wall.

As far as the mask is concerned, unfortunately you'll need the gears first. Above the door (once you find the gears and the bridge appears) is a face...that's where the mask will go.

Ok everybody, here is how to get into the Castle.

You get the winding key from the owner in a mail tube at the Alchemists. Go to the Castle Entrance and use it on the right mechanism so the statue will turn around. Pick up the mask face and click on the secret panel to get the gears.

Click on the secret panel in the left statue and place the gears. Use the winding key on the left mechanism and the statue will turn his back and the bridge will complete.

Click on the stone face above the door and enter the 2 symbols from the right mechanism. Put the mask on the face and the door will open.

I missed whatever the guest was trying to tell about the physicist because you have to actually get into the Castle to find him so somebody tell me what that question was all about and I'll deal with it.

Meanwhile, if you get in trouble before the W/T is published, ask here or try clicking on the magnifying glass in the lower right corner to see where the hot spots are that you need to check.

Also, check the Diary to see what tasks need to be completed.

@ Jazz

I just got to the part where the physicist asks you to do something. The question is

actually an order. He wants you to make him soup. He should have given you the elevator key for the kitchen. Go back to the main hall 1st, though, & then then the storage to get the vetetables you need.

Check your Diary for the code to make sure you are using the correct number because it is random and I backed out of the locker scene one time and the number changed so had the same prob.

In order to find the gears that you need to raise the bridge to the castle you need to go to the statue from the right side.

I'm stuck. Where is the other part of the medallion?

Score: 0 (0 votes) Vote up Vote down Report this comment Reply

The Medallion Pieces!

You get the first piece by completing the mini game to unlock the box from the skeleton.

The second piece is in the hand of the Mourning Statue at the Park Entrance. Give her the rose you acquired when you placed the bell on the delivery system in the Tunnel of the Grotto. Place it in her open hand and she will open the hand with the Medallion Piece.

I am stuck at the bells leading to the Master's chamber. I've tried every combination including the ones suggested by BFG and Gamezebo (LOL). Also have a problem logging in. Have to log in as "player." Any assistance?

TKDLadyV, you can have any profile but as long as "player" works and you've gotten that far in the game, I'd stick with it. About the bells:

Once you've placed the missing bell you should get a close up view of the box. There is a diagram below the bells the shows the second one the highest, the first one in the middle, and the third one the lowest so that is the order you need to ring (click) on them.

Hi Jazz -
Thanks for the comment. I've tried every imaginable combination INCLUDING the ones recommended and cannot get the bells to ring.
I've even completely reinstalled the dmg and game and started from scratch in hopes of getting over this hurdle, but can't seem to get any farther. And if you don't have the stone rose, you can't advance.
Think I'll contact BFG.

[Make sure you are not playing from the .dmg file. You should always copy the game over to your hard drive, then dismount the .dmg first before playing. Playing from the .dmg file may cause unexpected behavior (since the game cannot write to the files that reside in the .dmg. -Jay]

TKDLadyV, Listen to what Jay said but because I did the W/T which isn't posted as yet, I always play with several profiles to check stuff and never had a prob anywhere in the game. I know you need the rose but the bells should play as I indicated in my last post if you've placed the third bell.

Lol, sorry Jay but I have no clue what the .dmg file is. :>) I just know when you contact BFG, the first thing tech will ask you is whether your DirectX and video card are the latest possible updates available so you might want to check to make sure they are so you can tell them so and get a faster response.

Good luck and I hope it all works out because it's a really kewl game.

[.dmg files are for Mac users only. :) It's short for disk image. It's like mounting a CDROM disc, because it's READ ONLY, but it's entirely software (a file that you can download from the Web). -Jay]

Hi All - you CANNOT believe how incredibly embarrassed I am! For some unbeknownst reason, I thought that not only did you have to ring the bells in the prescribed order, but that they had to be rung that many times: e.g. Bell 2 ring once, bell 1, ring twice, bell 3 ring three times. Imagine my chagrin when I finally just tried ringing all of them, in order, only once. I am so sorry to have posted such a silly question. Many apologies! : P

Hi TkDLadyV, I'm pleased to hear you are no longer stuck. :)

And there's no need to be embarrassed when one considers all the crazy hoops and loops that game developers and puzzle designers throw at us these days. It's no wonder the crazy things that go through our heads when trying to solve puzzles. I know because I've been there! ;)

I don't know if anyone will be able to help me, but I'm stuck. I'm trying to get the soup and I'm in one of the hidden object scenes [In the Main Hall.] There is one item left for me to find: kiwi. But it seems that it is nowhere to be found. I have used the hint button multiple times thinking that perhaps I'm just missing something. It points to a lid, specifically the spot between the lid and the cherry. I've clicked all around that spot thinking that perhaps I am just missing something, but I cannot seem to figure this one out. I would hate to have to start the game all over again. I would though, if I had to.
