Natural Threat:
Ominous Shores


Natural Threat: Ominous Shores

DoraIf you want a hidden-object adventure that offers all the ghoulish, cheesy thrills of a late-night made-for-TV 1980s horror movie, look no further. Natural Threat: Ominous Shores by Alawar Games stars flesh-eating plants, mad scientists, and a gaggle of spring-break teenagers stranded on an island full of mutated monstrosities! Reeeeeeeee!... that, uh... that was a horror movie sound effect? You know, like... the monster is behind you! Reeeeeeeeee!... yeah, don't worry, I'm keeping my day job. With a gorgeous presentation, delightfully campy surprises, and all the genetically manipulated carnivorous creatures your little heart could desire, it's the perfect choice for an evening of monstrous, goofy fun.

Natural Threat: Ominous ShoresAfter a short tenure as an assistant for a creepy Jimmy Buffet-turned-mad scientist, you find yourself stranded on an island with a bunch of teenage stereotypes after your boat turns over in the storm. When you come to on the shore and find yourself alone, it's up to you to track down your helpless friends and avoid being turned into fertilizer. Eeeeeeevil fertilizer! Gameplay is rote for something of this type; whenever you're not busy being attacked by eyeball snake plant beasts, you'll be tracking down items and using complex things to solve simple tasks. Hidden-object scenes are marked with some lovely voluminous purple swirlies, the cursor changes to let you know when you can interact with something, and of course the hint and skip buttons are around if you're stuck or just don't feel like using your brain today.

Analysis: With so many games married to the concept that horror has to be grey and serious and full of intense operatic musical scoring, it's a relief to have one grab you by the hand and go, "Wheeeee!" Natural Threat: Ominous Shores is gloriously campy and just plain fun. Packed full of goofy cut-scenes, monsters, mayhem, and more dun-dun-dun than you can shake a stick at, it feels like a celebration of everything wonderful and weird about low-budget horror films. The game is lovely to look at, with its rich colours and imaginative locales, but also features a disappointingly coy soundtrack that kicks in whenever it feels like it, and then vanishes shyly in a flutter if you glance at it sideways. It doesn't really interfere too much with the game, which has a robust amount of ambient sound at least, but it is distracting.

Natural Threat: Ominous ShoresThe gameplay unfortunately doesn't share the same wild abandon as the concept and presentation, going for your tried-and-true adventuring and hidden-object seeking. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it is sort of like someone giving you a glass of water to go with your peanut cheese bar. Satisfying and sufficient, perhaps, but not nearly as fun and indulgent as the rest. of your dessert. Click detection to pick up or use certain items can be annoyingly fiddly at time, especially when trying to combine things in hidden-object scenes, and it can lead to some confusing moments when you think your solution has failed. In general, however, you'll usually find what you need to get past any given obstacle fairly close by. On the whole, in fact, the game isn't particularly difficult (unless you're bug-phobic), which means it might be less for veterans who're looking for something to stimulate their brains and more for those of us who want a game to unwind with.

Natural Threat: Ominous Shores suffers from a few minor technical flaws and might not be for players who like games with serious drama, but if you're looking for something that doesn't take itself too seriously, this is definitely the game to check out. At around four hours or more, it's a solid length, and is the sort of experience best enjoyed with a big bowl of popcorn on hand. Give the demo a try; while it might not win any awards for gameplay innovation, it's the perfect cure for the "nothing's on TV" blah's, and is just plain fun.

    • In the Expert mode the Hint and Skip buttons have a slower recharge timer, sparkles indicating active areas are disabled, and there is a penalty for too many mis-clicks.

  • Use the cursor to interact with the environment.

    • The cursor will change to a magnifying glass when you can investigate an area or start a puzzle or hidden object scene.

    • The cursor changes to a directional arrow when you can move to a different location.

    • The cursor changes to a hand when you can pick up an item to add it to your Inventory.

    Natural Threat: Ominous Shores Walkthrough
    General Info, Chapters 1-3

    General Information

    • At the start of a new game, you have a choice between two difficulties: Casual Mode and Expert mode.

      • In Casual Mode the Hint and Skip buttons will recharge more quickly, sparkles will indicate active areas, and there is no mis-click penalty.

      • In the Expert mode the Hint and Skip buttons have a slower recharge timer, sparkles indicating active areas are disabled, and there is a penalty for too many mis-clicks.

    • Use the cursor to interact with the environment.

      • The cursor will change to a magnifying glass when you can investigate an area or start a puzzle or hidden object scene.

      • The cursor changes to a directional arrow when you can move to a different location.

      • The cursor changes to a hand when you can pick up an item to add it to your Inventory.

      • The cursor changes to an arrow with a rotating gear when you can interact directly with the environment, or if an inventory item is needed to use on the object.

    • The Inventory is the toolbar located at the bottom of the screen.

      • Your Inventory bar contains all of the items you will need to progress through the game.

      • Click an item in your Inventory to select it, then click on an area in the game to attempt to use the item.

      • Often, once an item is used, it will disappear permanently from your Inventory.

    • To the right of the Inventory bar is the Hint button, shaped like a gargoyle with a jar.

      • The Hint button can be used to reveal an item during a hidden object scene or to show you the next step of your adventure if you're stuck.

    • While solving a puzzle, the Hint button will change into a Skip button.

      • Wait for the jar to fill completely, then press the Skip button once it is fully charged to immediately complete the puzzle.

    • Hidden object scenes are areas indicated by sparkles where you must collect various randomized objects listed at the bottom to receive a new inventory item upon completion.

    • In the screenshots of this guide, the random items are highlighted in green and the inventory item you receive at the end is labeled and highlighted in yellow.

    • Sometimes the item you receive at the end of the hidden object scene may not be any of the items from the list.

  • On the left side of the Inventory bar is the Journal.

    • The Journal contains helpful information and tracks your progress through the game.

    • Access the Journal to find pictures and text that can help you solve puzzles and follow the story.

    • Click the left or right arrows at the sides of the Journal to flip through the pages.

  • To the left of the Journal button is the Menu button.
