Donna Brave: And the Deathly Tree

Mad Head Games presents the next adventure in their new Donna Brave series! Donna Brave is on the case again, investigating a strange tree that grabs and poisons its victims, but when her childhood friend Kathi becomes the next victim, the case gets personal. Investigate the strange manor house and unlock the secrets behind this deathly tree, before you get ensnared by its deadly roots in this chilling hidden-object puzzle adventure game!

Thank goodness I don't remember coming upon a single tool that needed to be sharpened nor a missing zipper pull. After the game, you can go back and get the morphs and collectibles. Donna is on her way to see her school friend Kathi who has contacted her with an urgent plea for help. And you run thru the house repeatedly, to little purpose. Please try the demo, as the changing time periods and lack of character and skill in anything will convince you too that this was a black day at Mad Head! I can only add that I really enjoyed this game. The devices you use to melt the ice do not necessarily include matches. Whereas Leon and Stefan care for Kathi, the other two seem distant and lack empathy. Take it for a spin, see what you think. I thought the first Donna Brave was really good and bought this one untried - lucky it was during a sale!! So we are left with a slow moving game that has the player running back and forth through a house full of really unlikable people doing some of the dumbest tasks I've seen: After being "greeted" by your friend Kathi's nasty cousin, you heist Kathi's blue necklace to bribe said cousin for her help! The game is long on puzzles, low on HOPs.

Use others reviews as Plants vs Zombies guide, but use your own game play Doonna to decide if you like it or not. Others were easy enough to sail through. Rated 4 out of 5 by hydrogibbon from I don't understand the bad reviews I just bought this as the catch of the week and am enjoying the game play. Also, who wears a full length evening gown when answering the doorbell during the day? The barking dog in chapter 5 was irritating. Bad stuff: The time periods are strangely mixed and the characters look like paper cutouts with little movement or life. This second installment of the new Donna Brave series by Mad Head is not as bad as some reviewers lead Dolphin Dice Slots to believe.

It's a generous hops game that you choose items from the list and it puts more items on the list. Should have read the reviews You will definitely get your money's worth if you enjoy sleuthing, but items to find can be frustrating to find. The bonus chapter was an excellent continuation that didn't feel tacked on and tied up the handful of loose ends from the main game. If you can't present a complete SE game then don't bother. Whereas Leon and Stefan care for Kathi, the other two seem distant and lack empathy. He seemed so sure she would live 24 hours, just a second ago, but now she has less than a day?

I don't know what I did for the Ultimate Hops to appear in the bonus content maybe it's tied to the morphs also.

There aren't a whole lot of HOP's or MG's for that matterand there are no alternate puzzles available. The morphs are generous Secret Trails: Frozen Heart Collectors Edition they have a good indicator. Date published: Rated 3 out of 5 by ninja from Lots of sleuthing, but little action Donna Brave returns, and it's not much better. It's the card game. I had one puzzle that couldn't be completed.


So this was quite a treat to me! The morphs are very slow. I've never given a game one star before. Are the wounds one and the same as the tree? By now it has mutated into a sort of killer plant and there are its leaves: finding one, you know, you are marked for death. And you run thru the house repeatedly, to little purpose. The Mini Games are far too simplistic in my opinion, and there just aren't enough of them, at least not in the demo. I may not like the story, but I loved the bling available in the Collector's Edition version. This Sweet poor little rich girl's friends aren't very fond of her, and could care less that she is in dire need for her life, but wouldn't mind her possessions My only quibble is that the morphing objects in HOPs were extremely difficult to spot, that was only a minor issue. And the victims' names are tacked up on a sign post at the end of the driveway. Perhaps this developer will go back to its roots and put more time and effort into creating the games that are worthy of having the Mad Head name on them. This is not overused as gimmicks are in some games. Once I rescue my bestie from the killer tree, and drag her body inside, her father decides to help, so I heave Kathi's limp body into dads arms.

It was an excellent game and I have enjoyed replaying it. You are going through rooms in Donna's friend's manor looking for clues, solving puzzles, etc. If you enjoy finding collectibles, morphs and doing HO's with a number of difficulty levels to choose from, you might like this game. I haven't played the whole game so if that's in there, sorry. The morphs are very slow. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by nadaze2da from How does your garden grow?

14 thoughts on “Donna Brave: And the Deathly Tree

  1. How about of each? Find a key, find a bucket, find an amulet, etc. The plot doesn't make sense and is not believable. Once I rescue my bestie from the killer tree, and drag her body inside, her father decides to help, so I heave Kathi's limp body into dads arms. Since we all have differing tastes in games I recommend that you try the demo to see if this game might be one you will enjoy.

  2. Both help understanding the current events in the game and come in quite entertaining. The tree roots also cover things in ice. The Graphics are off the charts, I'm a sucker for good Art, quite stunning!! There is a gimmick which is a box in which you can put an item and then see the story about it. This is not overused as gimmicks are in some games.

  3. I also found the voiceovers annoying did not match the characters. Thank goodness I don't remember coming upon a single tool that needed to be sharpened nor a missing zipper pull. I may not like the story, but I loved the bling available in the Collector's Edition version.

  4. I haven't played the whole game so if that's in there, sorry. Use others reviews as a guide, but use your own game play experience to decide if you like it or not. Otherwise, why do we play them?

  5. Voice acting was perhaps a bit lacking but overall pretty good. Whereas Leon and Stefan care for Kathi, the other two seem distant and lack empathy. When Donna arrives, she is greeted by a very nervous Kathi, who explains that she needs Donna's help to solve a deadly mystery.

  6. Date published: Yes the characters are wooden but that's very little of the game. With potions and gene splicing! Then Kathi's dad mentions two different time frames for her death.

  7. Are there magnets involved here, how did it stay attached? By now it has mutated into a sort of killer plant and there are its leaves: finding one, you know, you are marked for death. A beautiful game with 19 hops. Should have read the reviews

  8. Donna rushes to the aid of a childhood friend who received, as a birthday gift, a nasty tree that has roots springing up all over the place. So many games feel like " I have played this before". There is a bit of back and forth but its usually within two or three scenes in the game and the map is a jump map.

  9. A hidden object game is about looking for hidden objects, right? You will definitely get your money's worth if you enjoy sleuthing, but items to find can be frustrating to find. I hadn't played the first Donna Brave game at that time. Good stuff: Madhead put all the usual elements into the game, HOPs, mini-games, and a sort of a story.

  10. If you don't, then don't. Kathi sent you petals of a flower that will save a victim from a tree attack. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Tundei from No red eyed demons! The medaillon uncovers the history of an object, when put into it.

  11. He seemed so sure she would live 24 hours, just a second ago, but now she has less than a day? Good stuff: Madhead put all the usual elements into the game, HOPs, mini-games, and a sort of a story. Nope, its a killer tree!

  12. It is not a five star game but I think it comfortably fits into the 4 star category. I would have preferred that the mouths of the characters moved when they spoke but that is just aesthetics. Finally a game with no red eyed demons or missing relatives to look for. Voice acting was perhaps a bit lacking but overall pretty good. I think too slow if I have to wait and wait to find it.

  13. With that being said though, I Beta tested this game I play Expert level with no help and I enjoyed it. A beautiful game with 19 hops. If you're "Brave" here's a recap of my review to help you decide which version, if either is right for you: Donna Brave could hardly wait to see her friend Kathi, after all she hasn't seen her since they hung out together at school.

  14. Voice acting was perhaps a bit lacking but overall pretty good. The game play is almost as confusing as the story line. I also found the voiceovers annoying did not match the characters. Leon is afraid, he could be to blame, as he did something years ago, which he regrets now and he wants to tell us all about it, but before he can get to the point, he gets caught by the roots, which draw him out of the window. I'm sure it's hard to deal with entrenched camps who hate HOPs or hate puzzles.
