Facebook's Vampire Diaries: Get Sucked In Game Part II
An Update to the Past Review
After I did a review on the game
and right after I did it, they updated the game with a few of the issues I complained about. And I'm like, great timing, Kathryn. So I decided to update my review.
The new changes are the fog regenerates really fast. A little too fast for my liking. After your stamina runs out you don't have enough time to wait for it build up again to completely clear the fog before the fog you cleared is already back. If you want to get the bonus for clearing the fog you'll have to buy vervain tea or something like that. Maybe the fog could regenerate six hours after you've cleared it. That way you can clear it and get the bonus without having to use gold coins [which cost money] to buy vervain tea to rebuild your stamina to clear it before it comes back. Yeah, I know, you just can't please me.
The game also has found a use for those worthless Mystic coins. You can use them to purchase power-ups in the trivia or the Mystic Pix games. But they can go pretty fast and because you can't clear the fog and because the Mystic Pix games are so hard to win, you can't earn as many as you once did.
Speaking of the Mystic Pix games, some of them are nearly impossible to tell the difference on, especially within 10 seconds. It's getting that I dread when they come up. I've had to just memorize the spots I found stuff missing if the same pic comes up. I actually prefer the Mystic Trivia to them. I haven't played the game much since I'm waiting for Chapter 2 to come out, so I don't know if some of the errors in the trivia game have been caught and corrected.
One new addition I like; yes, I actually like something. It's if you hold your mouse pointer over a particular part of the map they tell you what collections you can find where, which I think is nice. That way you don't go over old territory looking for an item you need in the wrong place. [Update: this is something that they've removed, as I just played the game and it no longer shows what area you can find a particular collection when you put your pointer over it on the map of the Cemetery for instance.]
Another fun addition is that each consecutive day you play the game you get rewarded a prize. You get Damon's heart or his kiss which gives you some stamina. You also can get Mystic coins as a results.
I don't know if it's because I've completed most of my collections, but sometimes the Mystic Pix games come up more than the Mystic Trivia and I think it's only the trivia that gives you items you need to complete a collection.
Anyway, anxiously awaiting for Chapter 2 to play. I keep checking in every day, but so far it hasn't been added. Just you watch. Because I said something about it not being added, it'll be added as I'm typing this.
