Great graphics style. Fantastic atmosphere. Great music but needed much more variety for all the time spent playing the game. Puzzles were neat and I enjoyed them. The platforming was the reason I didn't give 5 stars. It's always the thing that trips up games on line. The control is just not precise or snappy enough for the quick time gaming needed for the puzzles. It just makes it frustrating to play the harder stages. IMO.

Out of all of them., this was my least favorite one. I'm all for a good puzzle game, but I think it's safe to say that this game had the hardest puzzles in the series...so far. The fact that the sealbreakers are time sensitive does not ease the pressure in needing to solve the puzzle correctly. I'm going to assume, though, that would be the point of the game. So, if that's the case, I can't really complain. Overall, it was still a good game and I'm glad I actually decided to attempt doing it. So, until Sunken City comes out on Newgrounds, I can say that I've managed to complete every Cursed Travels game so far.

The two east-most and the northeast-most seals are almost impossible. You should have made them more fun like the one with the walking flames.

There's a secret ending but I can't seem to work out what it is. Any help?

Quite a fun puzzle game, though pretty hard. The puzzles in this one required me to write it down on a piece of paper, but all but one are pretty self-contained.
The only puzzles I can't say I liked were the military ranks one and the roman numerals switch when you jump one.
The first is just me not knowing the specifics of military ranks, I admit, but it made me google how they're ordered, which didn't help when one of the middle ranks doesn't even have a use, but you need them to count correctly.
The jumping one was confusing. I had to draw how the layouts of each state look, and it took a while to even figure out a path. Fortunately, only 1 jump is needed, so it wasn't too bad.
All in all, I'd say it's my second favourite of the series so far, the shattered labyrinth being first, though still really good.
