Preston Sterling (full name: Preston Sterling and the Legend of Excalibur)is a story-game app by Animated Arts Creative Gmbh.

This beautiful hidden object game transports players “into the world of English myths and legends” and is a must-play game for anyone into King Arthur.

Available for $1.99 through the iTunes Store, this app is designed with anyone who loves puzzle storyline hidden object type games.


Designed to be a puzzle-filled storyline, Preston Sterling sends players out in a world of danger and intrigue as they guide the game’s protagonist to find the mythical sword of King Arthur. Like most games of it type, Preston Sterling takes players a little time to get used to figuring out how and where to control its character; in-app tips keep you informed on how to best navigate levels when you’re just starting out though, so these little guidance-feature definitely makes Preston Sterling a very user-friendly app.

There are no in-app purchases, so you also don’t have to worry about needing to purchase any extra help to assist you through the puzzles. This app is available in English, German, and Russian, giving it a multi-language appeal.

However, while controlling the characters in this app was easy to get the hang of, and the puzzles were fun, I was really disappointed in the length of the game; for most storyline puzzle apps it takes longer to complete all of the challenges than it does in this app.

While this makes it a great option for beginners, anyone looking for a longer storyline challenge will probably be disappointed with their purchase.

The appearance of Preston Sterling and the Legend of Excalibur is really its greatest feature.

Specifically, the graphics of this relatively inexpensive app are very impressive. The characters are obviously all cartoon depictions, but the level of detail put into the graphic design aspect of Preston Sterling is well above that of many other puzzle storyline apps.

Figuring out how to control your character is pretty easy, and the layout of the app also makes general in-app navigation impressively smooth as well.


As mentioned previously, this app costs just under $2. There are no in-app purchases or ads in Preston Sterling and the Legend of Excalibur, a fact that certainly helps add to the value of your initial investment.

The graphics and storyline for this app are impressive and the attention to detail is definitely appreciated we just wish the game took longer to complete. This adventure has a relatively short storyline and so you wind up finishing it fairly quickly.

While this short storyline/gameplay might appeal to anyone with a very short attention span, users looking for a more long term gaming investment will be disappointed with this app.

download (7)Preston Sterling requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.
