Features of Empress 2 For Windows 8:
When you run the game, you will be shown the game movie as I had already discussed above. The movie has amazing effects and can be skipped at any time via the Esc. button on your keyboard, or simply by clicking on the screen.
The movie has good sound effects and if you are plugged to a sound system, you’ll observe that it actually has surround sound effects. Once the movie has been skipped, you will be presented with main menu of the game. In the main menu, when you click on the Play button, you will be presented with the instructions of playing the game. In the instructions screen, you can click on the Start button to begin the gameplay of the game.
The gameplay starts immediately when you click on the Start button. The gameplay screen is well designed and all the strategic controls are aptly placed at the bottom left and the bottom right, with menu button at bottom left and the Hints button at the bottom right. You can access the inventory at the bottom of the screen via the Inventory button.
The inventory is the storehouse of the items that you pick up along the way. You can click on these to view them and use them as well. The game is full of mini games like hidden object scenes etc. which will put a test to your wits. A hidden object level can be seen below with the things needed to be found listed at the bottom.
Empress 2 is a very well designed game which has gripping background tracks and intense graphics to keep you hooked. My only complaint with the app is that it has a large size and drains a lot of battery while running, but apart from that, the app is phenomenal. I hope the developers optimize it in future updates and hence make it a truly great app in all aspects!
I rate the app a 4.5 out of 5!
