If you have read my reviews for parts 1 and 2, you know I don’t play this series for the story. I can’t explain it, but when I first start those games, I feel a bit bored. But within an hour, I’m enjoying them and want to complete them. That wasn’t any different for this third part in the series.
I first had a bit of struggle with money; I might have spent it on the wrong things. Gladly the gold guide from “Natteee” already tells you one of the easy ways to make money at the start of the game and I’ve used that a lot. I enjoyed this game a lot and have completed it in 2 sittings.
Getting all the achievements isn’t that hard. None of them is missable. Keep an eye out for pearls when you’re in a screen with water. I can imagine that it might feel like a grind if you did not always pick them up when available. My overall advice would be to just pick up everything you can, which also adds in reaching the skill levels you need for some achievements.
