Reviewer's comments

"Explore this small village to find the treasure map. No enemies to shoot or secrets to find, no puzzles to solve; the gameplay is not very fluid 'cause the new objects difficult to figure out where to use, sometimes in obvious places though, like the cannonball or the letter. Nice environments, good use of musics and flybys, some cameras to help, and a surprising final cutscene. Even when the fist and last levels are too short, I think you'll enjoy this small adventure. Good work." - Jose (30-Jul-2018)

"I remember well this custom level divided in 3 parts: short-long-short level, all relaxing and setted in the summer season (it's very hot here so I suggest you to play it with an AC)... I enjoyed the whole adventure and it's not challenging, keeping you in a pleasant adventure through the beach, streets and the entire island of Louloudaki (=floret in English, fiorellino in Italian and so on). A big step up for the author that her levels give always more beautiful and delicate emotions." - AlexCroft (29-May-2018)

"A rare case when I enjoy a retextured map because it has a completely different feeling and a lot of extra stuff. There could be some secrets and I would apply less static cameras since they're naturally distracting, but the only really nasty issue is the tile triangle errors. The rest is a relaxing and immersing treasure hunt, and of course I love it everytime I see any NPCs appear. Hot stuff, recommended." - DJ Full (11-May-2018)

"Well, I like Talos’ games, and this one is typical: funny characters that talk to Lara, a few unexpected, charming actions (I enjoyed the Donna Summers touch), creative sequences, nothing very difficult or frustrating, straightforward from beginning to end, with sufficient camera hints. Play it!" - Josey (29-Apr-2018)

"This is another charming and well made level from this prolific builder. It made a nice change to see the Back to Basics Greece assets in a custom level as we so rarely see those and the scenic appointments are a treat to look at. There's no enemies and no real thinking puzzles as such, so the pleasure comes from exploring this exotic seaside town, locating the necessary custom objects and putting them to good use. Recommended for a pleasant change of pace." - Ryan (22-Apr-2018)

"I always enjoy playing levels by Talos, especially since my antivirus program no longer rejects her patched executables out of hand. They're always bright, cheery and easy on the eyes, and they frequently demand out-of-the-box thinking. You get here a main level sandwiched between two brief segments, but all take place in the same general area. There's a little more backtracking than I like, but the game map is so compact that this causes little waste of time. There are no enemies as such, but you do need to shoot a few things as you progress. The quaint village in broad daylight was a delight to explore, and I spent more time than I normally would have because I was writing a walkthrough along the way. A recommended diversion from the more intense and enemy-laden levels." - Phil (14-Apr-2018)

"Lovely environment in this quick adventure but I got kinda confused with all the needed puzzle pieces and where to use them. The three levels were a bit too short but that is okay because the tasks were focused mostly on finding items, not solving hard puzzles - it just gets kinda repetitive at times. The design was kinda weird but original. A few more camera hints here and there could've been useful. Not Talos' best level but still recommended." - misho98 (01-Apr-2018)

"Louloudakis Island 7/8/9/9 A charming and creative level that puts the Back to Basics Greece textures to good use and would indeed have made a worthy entry in that competition. Lara's hanging out with pirates again on a beautiful Greek island, in search of treasure. As befits an Easter Time level, it's peaceful so you can take your time admiring the scenery and stroking some of the many resident cats as you explore everywhere in your search for fascinating objects and interact with colourful characters." - Jay (01-Apr-2018)

"It may be Alzheimer (knock on wood) but I can only remember two parts, not three (or maybe, since I played this level on and off, I just connected the first two and the third in my mind, the Beach being just a short epilogue). The environments were nice, the kind that you'd expect from Talos, pirates, Greece and all and I was glad to see she corrected some animations from her previous game just like she'd already corrected making cut scenes too long, so that's all very well done and shows somebody who listens. All in all, it's basically a peaceful and colourful find- them-all adventure with some interesting touches (the room with the burning sand, for instance) but also quite confusing at times. Yeah, I was lost half of the time. Still, I rather enjoyed Louloudaki Island and recommend it to all." - Jorge22 (01-Apr-2018)

"A sweet level trio that despite of a relatively short length manages to convey a storyline with several flybies and conversations (which are more like monologues, but anyway). A beautiful coastal setting is explored with quite decent texturing and lighting, mainly good usage of objects (some are slightly misplaced) and nice audios and cameras. The gameplay is at least slightly varied with a timed run, a tiny platforming sequence and much exploration for items and levers, but there are no puzzles to solve and the only challenge lies in finding all necessary keys and their receptacles. I was not really a fan of those unmarked ladders either but they were no large deal. Sadly, there are no secrets to find either, which would've added something to the experience, but the final cutscene is rather rewarding. 20 minutes." - manarch2 (29-Mar-2018)

"Another cute themed level done by Talos! The atmosphere was beautiful. There was so much color everywhere! There wasn't really any puzzles or enemies, but there was a part that involved a tricky jump. Some things were tricky to find. I think this level is a good Easter themed one." - Victoria (28-Mar-2018)
