Elena’s Journal – Unfinished Expedition has a very mysterious and intriguing story that gets quite dark, so is not recommended for young children, but it kept me wondering where the story was going and how it will end.
I love this type of time management game in which you complete orders. I don’t know what it is, but I just enjoy it so much and Gamehouse/SQRT3 is a pro in making this type of game. and in my book they did it again, this is a lovely game. I prefer the newer titles from GameHouse a lot because they don’t have crazy mini-games that are hard to do with a mouse.
The achievements in “Elena’s Journal – Unfinished Expedition” are typical of what you expect in this type of time management game. Completing all levels with 3 stars, find the lizard, and level up all the items, that last one will be the longest one as you might need to replay some levels in order to be able to do that. There is also an achievement for watching every cutscene, so I would strongly recommend not skipping them. If you did by accident, you can go into the menu and watch the ones you didn’t watch, you can see which ones you missed. Elena’s Journal – Unfinished Expedition has no missable achievements and can be played on the easiest difficulty while still unlocking all the achievements.
