Description

Brunhilda is a student of Linguistics in New York. When her aunt is going on a holiday, she asks Brunhilda to go find a bag she left at her apartment. When Brunhilda arrives at the apartment, she finds out that her aunt's obsession with the occult is not just an innocent hobby The bag contains a demon that tells her the Magical Realm is in danger. A prophecy has foretold that magic will weaken and disappear over time. The King has decided to store all available magic in a Dark Crystal, which diminishes the amount of magic. The prophecy also tells about someone from another world who can save the Magical Realm.

Brunhilda and the Dark Crystal is a blend of the hidden object and adventure genres. It consists of several worlds in which the player has to find certain objects to progress, for instance ingredients for potions or pages from a book. These objects are relevant to the story and are sometimes used to solve puzzles and remove obstacles. 'Magic' (Alchemy, Wizardry and Telepathy) is performed in mini-games such as catching the correct falling drops and clicking runes shown on a scrolling bar. If a player does well, mini-games are unlocked for replaying from the main menu.

There are two difficulty settings to choose from. This setting influences the time it takes before a player can ask the demon for a clue on where to find an object, and whether or not objects are highlighted. There is a square magnifying glass that can be used at all times to zoom in on a scene. There is no penalty for clicking on a 'wrong' object and you cannot die. The game is fully voiced.
