Relics of Fate:
A Penny Macey Mystery


Relics of Fate

JohnBRelics of Fate: A Penny Macey Mystery is a brand new hidden object adventure from Fuzzy Bug Interactive. It ditches the usual string of still scenes packed with items to find and lists to manage in favor of an adventure-style layout, freeing you up to solve interactive puzzles and stock your inventory with useful items. Top it off with a healthy dose of crime investigation and you've got a wholly enjoyable game on your hands!

Relics of FatePrivate investigator Jack Macey seems to have been kidnapped while investigating the robberies of a set of relics. Arriving at his office one day, his daughter, Penny, notices things seem a bit less tidy than they should be. After cleaning things up a bit, she discovers a note in his filing cabinet instructing her to locate the eight relics before anyone else does. Naturally, Penny immediately sets out to investigate!

Relics of Fate: A Penny Macey Mystery follows a more adventure-oriented layout, sticking to inventory puzzles and environmental challenges as opposed to hidden object-laden scenes. Most of your time will be spent exploring still scenes with the mouse, clicking on areas of interest and looking deeper into certain areas that sparkle on the screen. Yes, you'll still find a laundry list of items or two, but these are very much secondary to the main chunk of the game and mainly serve to provide you with key items.

Relics of Fate utilizes container items made popular by the Treasure Seekers series by Artogon. When you click on certain objects, they'll display a round menu with a few grayed-out items displayed to the side. In order to activate that object, you'll need to find a few things from around the scene and place them in the container. It's immediately intuitive and is actually a lot of fun to do.

Relics of FateSolving puzzles is the central focus of Relics of Fate, and they're pretty interesting from beginning to end. The usual battery of crime-related activities make an appearance, from dusting for fingerprints to searching for clues. But you'll also have to figure out more interesting puzzles, like how to put a drowsy cop to sleep. Relics of Fate also encourages you to really look around each room, checking in drawers, behind cabinets, underneath desks, etc. When you complete an area, you'll really feel like you've gutted it for clues!

Analysis: For the most part, Relics of Fate: A Penny Macey Mystery is a standard hidden object/adventure hybrid game. It leans more toward the adventure side of things with its overall design and emphasis on inventory items and puzzle solving, which works very well for the type of story being told. And if you're in the mood for a more challenging experience, you can choose Challenge Mode when you begin the game, offering fewer, more vague hints and penalties for rapid clicking.

One area where Relics of Fate really stands out is visual design. We've been spoiled by modern development studios pouring money into the artistic side of games, so it takes a bit of extra creativity to stand out from the crowd. With Relics of Fate, still scenes are livened up with a number of animated characters and items, all presented in smooth, shaded 3D. From Penny's icon at the bottom of the screen to the librarian

Relics of Fate: A Penny Macey Mystery doesn't leap out from the legions of hidden object adventure games on the market, but that doesn't stop it from providing an interesting story with great visuals and strong puzzles to solve!

Relics of Fate: A Penny Macey Mystery Walkthrough

General Information

  • On the Main Menu you can select or change your profile, choose your options, check the scores, play or exit.

  • Options include music and sound effects volume, as well as a choice of full or windowed screen.

  • As you start the game, you will be given your choice to play Casual or Challenge Mode.

  • Casual Mode is the relaxed version with plenty of hints and no click penalty.

  • Challenge Mode is for experienced Hidden Object fans who prefer the challenge of fewer, more vague hints and don't mind being penalized for rapid clicking.

  • There is one penalty for both mode: If you choose to quit the game in the middle of a location, you will have to begin the location all over again when you next play.

  • In Casual Mode, your tasks will be shown at the upper right of the screen.

  • Hints will begin when you find Hamish in the closet of Dad's Office. Hamish is Dad's dog and will be eager to help when he can with paw prints to the object you seek.

  • In between help, Hamish will fall asleep, as he will during Mini Games and Puzzles, until the Hint or Skip buttons are ready for use.

  • There are no arrows for moving from one location to another, because there will be an automatic blackout as you are taken there.

  • Once you have completed a scene, you cannot go back to the previous location.

  • After your visit to the town Library, you will find a map to help you more easily transfer to different locations.

  • Cursors change into different types of hands to pick up objects; or open doors, drawers, and cabinets; or a magnifying glass addition for taking a closer look.

  • Hidden Object Scenes are the same for all profiles, but the order in which the items are listed will change.

  • Some tasks you need to perform will have a large magnifying glass surrounded by one or more circles of objects you need to collect in order to perform the task.

  • When you need to talk to somebody, a talk bubble will appear, and you may need to click the scene in order to see the next portion of the conversation from the other participant.

  • Once you encounter the Map, you will be able to choose which location you wish to visit in which order.

  • Locations on the Map will be added as the need to investigate different locations is discovered.

  • Since the developer chose to refer to sections of the game as "Acts", I will be treating the various locations as Acts as it plays out, and the in between stops at Penny's Dad's Office will become Intermissions.

  • Because I have arranged the walkthrough as a play with acts, you will be able to more readily find the locations you have chosen by the names of the Acts, which are the various locations.

    I have a question, unrelated to the game itself - why is it that so many great looking HO/Adventure games are only made for PCs? As a Mac user and a huge fan of the genre, it's more than a little frustrating to see all these interesting titles come out (like this one) week after week, only to be disappointed by the phrase "Not Available" stamped beneath the Mac OS X logo.

    Is there some technical reason that developers choose not to open up their games to a wider market? It seems like a missed opportunity to me, but perhaps there's some reason having to do with programming difficulties with Macs vs. PCs... ? I know basically zero about the technical side of games, but I'm curious to know if the reviewer or anyone else can answer my question...

    Twinkie23 -
    I'm sure it must be frustrating to have a Mac and not be able to just download and play what you want. If you have a program like Boot Camp or Parallels or CrossOver Games, you might want to give one of those a try. Many of our reviewers have Macs and most times a conversion program works for them, but there are also times when they can't seem to make everything work.

    I'm sure this probably isn't the answer you wanted to here since it is merely a work-around, but I guess there are trade-offs we all have to make according to the OS we choose to use.

    If you are still super curious, you might try contacting some of the developers and ask that same question. Good luck!

    Relics of Fate: A Penny Macey Mystery Walkthrough

    General Information

    • On the Main Menu you can select or change your profile, choose your options, check the scores, play or exit.

    • Options include music and sound effects volume, as well as a choice of full or windowed screen.

    • As you start the game, you will be given your choice to play Casual or Challenge Mode.

    • Casual Mode is the relaxed version with plenty of hints and no click penalty.

    • Challenge Mode is for experienced Hidden Object fans who prefer the challenge of fewer, more vague hints and don't mind being penalized for rapid clicking.

    • There is one penalty for both mode: If you choose to quit the game in the middle of a location, you will have to begin the location all over again when you next play.

    • In Casual Mode, your tasks will be shown at the upper right of the screen.

    • Hints will begin when you find Hamish in the closet of Dad's Office. Hamish is Dad's dog and will be eager to help when he can with paw prints to the object you seek.

    • In between help, Hamish will fall asleep, as he will during Mini Games and Puzzles, until the Hint or Skip buttons are ready for use.

    • There are no arrows for moving from one location to another, because there will be an automatic blackout as you are taken there.

    • Once you have completed a scene, you cannot go back to the previous location.

    • After your visit to the town Library, you will find a map to help you more easily transfer to different locations.

    • Cursors change into different types of hands to pick up objects; or open doors, drawers, and cabinets; or a magnifying glass addition for taking a closer look.

    • Hidden Object Scenes are the same for all profiles, but the order in which the items are listed will change.

    • Some tasks you need to perform will have a large magnifying glass surrounded by one or more circles of objects you need to collect in order to perform the task.

    • When you need to talk to somebody, a talk bubble will appear, and you may need to click the scene in order to see the next portion of the conversation from the other participant.

    • Once you encounter the Map, you will be able to choose which location you wish to visit in which order.

    • Locations on the Map will be added as the need to investigate different locations is discovered.

    • Since the developer chose to refer to sections of the game as "Acts", I will be treating the various locations as Acts as it plays out, and the in between stops at Penny's Dad's Office will become Intermissions.

    • Because I have arranged the walkthrough as a play with acts, you will be able to more readily find the locations you have chosen by the names of the Acts, which are the various locations.
