Summary: When I saw the cover, I instantly thought this was going to be a good seek and find game. Once I received it, I was disappointed because it is just like the "Mystery PI" game. I guess next time I will take the time to read the specs before I just buy.
Summary: This game was a lot of fun. The way the hints for the storyline were laid out, the hidden pictures games, and the minigames in between were all very creative and a lot of fun. I loved the related item games, where players match items that are related instead of identical. It really added an additional level of challenge to the games. But even so, the games are far too easy and far too short.
Summary: I found this game is entertaining at first, but it quickly became tedious due to the repetition. There are 20 "missions", each consisting of a few paragraphs of a journal and 5 game "levels". Each level has a search-and-find puzzle, and then a mini-game. The mini-game's picture or background is the basis for the next search and find puzzle. With 20 missions and 5 levels per mission, you are doing the search-and-find 100 times. But there are only 18 different scenes.
Summary: I like hidden object games. Both on a personal and professional level (the latter as most of them are great for expanding the vocabularies of the children attending the after school club I help to run: such games are non-violent, challenging and make children think). But this one annoys me, because it fails to disclose its derivative origins.
