Это шикарно! Достаточно просто включить какую-нибудь песню Арии и можно фапать на этот арт вечно *_* Рисунок будто оживает, и сюжет начинает развивать сам себя!

тут много элементов, которые сразу под несколько песен подходят - сложно)) Но вообще клево придумали, что чтобы угадать, надо знать песню - без этого никогда не угадать какой-нибудь "бал у князя тьмы" или "Отшельник"))) Но есть конечно и простые элементы

я и поиграл)) так, без игры я нашел песен 15 всего (хотя являюсь давнишним фанатом Арии)... А пока играл, многое стало понятно... хотя некоторые песни так и не нашел... например "кровь королей" мне игра предлагала раз 10 найти, и я как дурак каждый раз прощелкивал всю кровь, которую находил на картине (по-моему, так и не нашел) :) Еще, допустим, "не хочешь, не верь мне" один раз только задали, но мотоцикл из героя асфальта уже был серым, а больше ничего в голову не пришло, ведь песни-то об одной истории:) Ну и еще пару песен типа "свет былой любви" получилось найти только мультикликом:)

"кровь королей" = текст из песни "девять сестер в темных плащах вдаль увезут короля". нет такого образа на картинке?

"не хочешь не верь мне" нет на картинке

"свет былой любви" = текст "я вернусь к тебе грозой, радугой воскресну над землей". ничего подобного не видно?

MasterTeacher Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2013
да понятно, что все угадать можно, если проанализировать каждое слово в каждой песне :) Просто, допустим, "хрустальный шар" отшельника - это как бы основополагающий момент песни и тут трудно ошибиться. А слова "я вернусь к тебе грозой, радугой воскресну над землей" - это просто кусок из песни... Я не то что кого-то упрекаю.. просто говорю, что есть довольно сложные задания:)
