Brunhilda and the Dark Crystal is a hidden object game. Players are tasked to visit the Magical Realm and help the creatures there. Players are helped by a small demon who gives the power of wizardry, alchemy, telekinesis, and telepathy. As the player goes through the story, several items must be collected in order to solve dilemmas. Some of the items that must be found include flowers, pipes, sheep, wheels, nails, and just about anything. Each chapter in the game opens different locations where the player must look for items.
Items that must be found are located at the bottom of the screen. They are ticked off once they have been found. Signs are scattered on the game screen to help players know where to look.
Other features of the game include the following:
• different characters to meet and 10 locations to visit
• hand-drawn environments in the Magical Realm
• plenty of quests to complete
• more than six hours of gameplay
• hint system
In addition to the hidden object game, Brunhilda and the Dark Crystal also offers mini games with wizardry and alchemy themes. These mini game puzzles get harder to solve as the game progresses.
