Youda Survivor 2 Review


Youda Survivor 2 is a time management title where the player has to save the world. It's a sequel to Youda Survivor. In the original, we only had to save a primitive civilization, but all that has changed, thanks to those nasty pirates. They've stolen something important that puts everyone in danger. This is a long experience with plenty of gameplay that never really gets old. In addition, there is an extra mode that adds even more to the game, something that wasn't in the first release.

In Youda Survivor, the player is shipwrecked on an island occupied by a primitive tribe. The player is hailed as the stranger who has come to save them and has to go through several trials to, first, prove he's the chosen one from the prophecy, and second, to defeat the pirates. There was only one choice for a character, a male. In this second title, that savior of a civilization has moved back to society, met a woman, gotten married and had an adorable baby. All of a sudden, a nasty storm hits and the stranger is contacted again by the island dwellers. This time, though, it's not just the island that's in danger from the pirates. They've stolen an important artifact that keeps balance in the world and the player has to get it back. Unlike the first game, we get to choose whether we want a male or female avatar, but it makes no difference in the story or the gameplay what we choose.

Youda Legend - The Curse of the Amsterdam Diamond Review


The Curse of the Amsterdam Diamond leaves me with mixed feelings. On the one hand, I was never bored. On the other, it was very short and not challenging. There were no penalties for misclicks and no time limits. The variety of puzzles and hidden object sections were very well done. Hence, mixed feelings.

The story was irrelevant, as so often happens with these games, so that was a bit disappointing. Basically, you are a treasure hunter on the search for the hidden treasure of the Flying Dutchman. The story is completely relayed in text. The music is throwaway and no voices were added to this title. It was a pretty barebones game with little in the way of bells and whistles.

Where it really shines is with the puzzles, making this more a puzzle adventure than a pure hidden object game. All the puzzle types are recognizable to any puzzle afficianados and none are repeated, so it stays fresh throughout. The hidden object aspect of the game was well done, although at times, I found myself ignoring the list and just clicking around at anything that looked like it might be on the list. That worked more often than not, but the last few items on the list were usually a bit of a challenge and I did end up using hints with a few of the objects. Disappointingly, when I did finally find the object, it was nearly invisible to the screen, so no matter how well I looked at the image, I would have never found them.
