Concept:

Treasure In The Dark: Remastered is a free-to-play mobile game that requires players to challenge their memory. Players can choose from a variety of avatars (which need to be unlocked with in-game currency) to embark upon their hop block adventure. As shown in the trailer above, the objective is to get the treasure.

The game can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store via this linktree.

Visuals and Sound:

Treasure In The Dark: Remastered has been built in Unity engine and looks very polished and in line with the concept of the game. The menus, tutorial page, and the game itself honestly look and feel like a studio title. The developer’s attention to detail is clearly noticeable throughout.

Each of the characters delivers their own quirky dialogue and has their own catchphrases for every action taken. The developer has infused the game with plenty of tongue-in-cheek humor which makes it a truly fun experience.

My favorites so far are Sally and Karen.

Gameplay:

The first few levels of Treasure In The Dark: Remastered lull players into a false sense of security. It almost plays like an idle game until suddenly the difficulty is cranked up. Ultimately the point of the game is to get to the treasure box in as few steps as possible by jumping onto hidden blocks. Remembering exactly which blocks to jump on gets more and more complicated and sometimes a little frustrating.

The player is given a number of power-ups to help them throughout the game that can be earned by completing levels as efficiently as possible. In the beginning, players will hardly use them but they will quickly become essential.

The levels introduce more and more elements to hinder the player’s path or in some cases make it easier (like the teleport block).

Ads to support the creator do pop up, but it doesn’t break the game’s flow.

At the time of writing, I have not completed all levels. All the above-mentioned game elements are already mentioned in the tutorial.
