Drawn: Trail of Shadows

JohnBBest of Casual Gameplay 2011Drawn has returned. The third game in the series, Drawn: Trail of Shadows, dares to outdo its predecessors, Drawn: The Painted Tower and Drawn: Dark Flight, in what simply must be the most enchanting hidden object adventure hybrid game to date. The visuals have improved (if you can believe it!), the storytelling is even more intriguing, and the puzzles are as rich as before. Good hidden object games are hard to come by, so when you find a game this great, you'd best dive right in.

Drawn: Trail of ShadowsThere was once a young boy who loved to paint. His drawings were so vivid, they transformed themselves into magical portals that led to other worlds. But one day, he created a door he never should have painted, and out came an evil wizard. The wizard took the boy with the intention of forcing him to paint evil into every corner of existence, removing the sun and stars from the sky itself. Just as he was being pulled into the painting, however, the boy realized he wasn't alone. This is where you, young Iris, enter the story.

Just like Drawn: Dark Flight, Trail of Shadows manages to fill out the story introduced in the previous games without alienating new players. So, if you've never played a Drawn game, you won't feel left out starting with number three. If you're already a Drawn fanatic (which, you really should be), Drawn 3 adds some nice pre-Iris backstory and keeps things moving forward nicely.

Drawn: Trail of ShadowsGameplay falls firmly on the casual adventure side of things, keeping jarring lists of objects out of the picture in favor of organic inventory items and scattered clues. Each small section is composed of several screens, many of which have sparkling areas you can zoom in and interact with. To solve the puzzles and move on to the next area, you'll need to climb around and search everywhere for items. Sometimes they're well-hidden, sometimes they're in pieces, and other times, you'll have to jump through a few hoops in order to make them appear.

Drawn: Trail of Shadows features a number of great mini-games, all of which fit perfectly in the fairytale storybook setting, They aren't revolutionary in terms of content, but they're good diversions and always simple to complete. Besides, you can skip them after a few moments if you aren't in the mini-game sort of mood. And yes, before you get too curious, the wonderful pop-up book sections from before have returned!

Drawn: Trail of ShadowsAnalysis: Drawn: Trail of Shadows is phenomenal. Adjectives don't do the game justice, as it's a marvelous thing to see in action. The visuals, as pretty and lush as before, have been upgraded to produce a shifting effect when you move your cursor. It looks as if you're actually standing in a forest meadow, as the foreground and background move independently. It sounds trivial, but when you see it in motion, you'll wonder how you'll ever play a standard hidden object game again.

The Drawn series has always aimed to do things a little differently than the rest. Adding itself to a crowded genre can be a frightening thing to do, but the series stands out thanks to some excellent artwork, storytelling, and puzzle design. Drawn also skips right over most pitfalls hidden object/adventure games fall victim to, showing remarkable polish that leads to a near perfect gaming experience. Trail of Shadows continues this tradition without feeling too much like its predecessors, removing any fear of copy/paste game design before you even start playing.

Don't be afraid of Drawn: Trail of Shadows because it's the third in a series. Newcomers can play it just as easily as veterans. And don't shrug your shoulders because of the genre label shared with all those other games. Drawn: Trail of Shadows is expertly-crafted to provide an adventure experience unrivaled in the casual gaming world, and it's got something every player can enjoy.

Just played it through - completely outstanding, as I knew it would be. However, despite all of the magnificent artwork, animation and gameplay, the thing that excited me most was

the space for one more portrait in the "World of Drawn" section of the extras. More, please! :D

Another lovely game from the Drawn series, what a great thing to end my day with =D

It did seem a bit shortish and not as difficult as the earlier two games; I only had to resort to hints twice or thrice (while I abused the heck out of the hint system previously, haha).

Nonetheless, very beautiful game, and I love the popup bits, they're so cute.

I normally don't buy the CE, but I couldn't wait... The extra wallpapers are extremely beautiful, though. =)

The game was absolutely beautiful.
I squealed with delight when I saw the third in the series was out, and got it immediately.
The art in the game was stunning, the soundtrack set perfectly to each scene, and each puzzle kept interesting.

I think my absolute two favorite parts were

the little arcade-esque puzzle, where you chose the object, drew it in, and watched to see if it helped you advance to the next part. I just loved the music here! And when I started the adventure, my jaw dropped as the screen moved as I moved my mouse. This really is something I hope to see more of in other games. It gave an astounding feel of really being there in the game!

I do hope to see more in this series, it is by far one of my favorites, right up there with Dream Chronicles. (:

Such a beautiful game! In terms of game play, I think Dark Flight is still my favorite of the series, but Trail of Shadows did not disappoint! I was especially glad to see

the lamplighter return (among other past characters). He was one of my favorite bits of the last game and it made me so happy to see him climb out of my inventory!

A beautifully ... drawn, I suppose ... game. But as a male adult playing it I keep thinking it would be wonderful for a kid aged 10 to 14 getting occasional help from a parent. The puzzles are all pretty easy for an avid puzzle-gamer but it should keep a young teen busy for a few days.

Slightly surprised at one contrast: the game is pretty and beautiful; the underlying plot, if you consider it as if it was a story, is extremely dark and hopeless.

Maybe you can consider that no matter what age we are that the game may have been designed to satisfy the child in all of us. I don't consider that a bad thing because sometimes we need to go relate to it again to remind us how we got to where we are. ;)

Though short, this installment does drop the tedious backtracking it was so fond of in the previous games. A fair trade off as far as I'm concerned. Beautiful visually and one of the few games where I don't want to switch the music off.

This did however feel like a filler episode rather than a full blown game. Perhaps the devs had the 4th installment in mind while making this. Should be something to look forward too.

Still a lovely game and well worth trying out the full version.

It's absolutely gorgeous!

But I don't understand this hidden object kind of game.. I never played one that isn't boring. The puzzles are ridiculously easy! I managed to play 80% of one of these with the demo alone. (time limited)

I think they are missing a higher target. I know for a fact that there is an army of people starving for challenging puzzles, reminiscent from the lucas arts era or today's escape games.

It actually looks like it is taped to him because of the difference in color of the top of the pocket, and it isn't very big.

If it just isn't there at all, you need to contact tech support where you purchased the game. Their usual questions are whether your computer meets the system requirements posted for the game, and if you have the latest driver for your video card.

Also, the game itself does say that if you are experiencing performance issue, try lowering your screen resolution.

What a beautiful game. I would agree with others that these puzzles were easier than those in previous games - there was only one that I ended up randomly clicking while waiting to skip it - but I don't view that as a negative thing. If I want to twist my brain into a pretzel, I can easily find other games for that.

Also, for those interested: note that the collector's edition for this game actually lets you export the soundtrack in .mp3 format! The collector's edition of the previous game didn't have this feature - it only played while you kept the game open.

thanks for the suggestion. i did try lowering the screen res, and the crayon still didnt appear.

if it helps, im running on Windows 7 Ultimate, as Admin and ive tried all the compatibility modes.

after Googling for a bit it seems im not the only one being deprived of crayons :[ it seems in comparison to others though, this is the only bug ive found. and ive had no crashing, data loss, etc. so, im going to stay positive and wait for a bug fix.

im afraid an update will kill my data, so im just going to wait until one comes out that everyone is happy with.

in the meanwhile ive replayed all the previous titles for fun. i really love this franchise and i wish all HO games were like this :P

Hey, i've been having the same problems with the statues' head..it's getting frustrating and i can't seem to find a way to fix it. From some previous games that had bugs i've leard that you can modify the game logg in order to get objects and skip over part with the bug.(i don't think it's cheating, especially when you don't want to start the game over, and there is no other way of getting around that bug). The only problem is i have no clue how to do that when it comes to this particular game. Any ideas???

Glass Shard Puzzle solution.

  • The straight piece goes in the upper right corner.

  • The zigzag piece goes in the lower left corner.

  • The long piece with the left bend goes in the lower right corner.

  • The piece bent to the right with the light spot on top of it goes in the upper left corner.

  • The remaining piece needs to be rotated to fit at the bottom. To rotate it, place it on the edge of the puzzle and click on it so the hand appears and turns it.

    an update fixed the bug i found with the

    crayon in the faun's pocket

    and i was able to move forward with no other problems...

    until i got to

    the part after you get the last(?) page of the book and the dark wizard talks to you. im assuming from the hint that theres supposed to be an archer in the room and i have to give him his bow and arrow, but the room is just dark.

    i still have the inventory bar on the bottom of the screen, but i can do absolutely nothing. clicking where the archer should be, and anywhere else, does nothing. i cant go back into the previous room since the cursor doesnt change into an arrow when i move it to the bottom of the screen.

    i dont know if i need a light source, as the hints dont say anything about it, and all i have is the bow and arrow in my inventory...

    doesnt look like anyones run into this particular situation yet, so i thought id mention it :3

    the room is totally dark. if it werent for the inventory bar on the bottom and menu, i would have thought it froze during loading (last loading screen has no pirate?) so yeah, i clicked 'hint' and it showed how the room is supposed to be, with the archer in the corner as you said. moving the cursor around the room, it doesnt change to indicate that anything is there. rampant clicking accomplishes nothing. music still plays, so otherwise the game works fine?

    Which mushrooms? Have a look at Chapter 3 of the walkthrough above the comments.

    There is a mushroom game where you need to connect them to get light in the cave.
    There are also mushrooms to get rid of the bats so you can collect the Topaz Gem.

    Wonderful game!! I wish it could have been longer, but that just tells you how great the game is. One question: what's with all the

    pigs? I thought there would be something at the end that tallied up how many you found, or maybe unlocked some extras, or something. I did notice a bunch of pigs in the credits; is that what it was?

    Sessie,
    In the Collector's Edition...

    You could unlock achievements. Finding all the hidden pigs was one of them. I haven't played the standard edition, so I don't know if the achievements are still there. But, if the pigs are there, the achievement for finding them all probably is, too!

    Okay, I can't get the wooden boy (the broken one) to stay in place. He stays broken and goes back to my inventory. Help? I clicked the hint box but all it does is tell me a piece of the puzzle is covered in flowers, but I don't see any. I'm so confused...

    I think there is a glitch in the game. I am trying to paint the queen carved out of the log - the purple paint keeps coming out BLUE. Couldn't finish painting her.
    Help please!

    I am replaying the game and have run into an apparent bug. I'm at the little house at the beginning of the game, trying to mix the paints. I've successfully mixed the red, yellow, and orange and am trying to mix the blue but CANNOT pick up the pestle to pulverize the blue rock. Cursor does not change to a hand. I've clicked over every molecule of the pestle and cannot grab it.

    Love the games! Please continue this series. I particularly enjoy the painting the queen puzzle in the 2nd game, where you have to figure out the sequence of placing the colors. Never played any puzzle like this before. More! More! Also like the stencil on the different colors in the Trail of Shadows game.

    Anyway, would appreciate a tip on how to address the bug, and keep up the good work!
