Fun, but buggy, and a clone of a better game by the same developer

A. Robinson, Amazon

  • Summary: I came to this game having played lots and lots of PopCap's hidden object games on PC. I was concerned the DS's small screen size would hurt the maps and detail, but it tries ti make up for that but showing only about a quarter of each search screen at a time, to be scrolled through with the D-pad.

Disappointing

  • 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.

Repetitive and tedious

Carol M, Amazon

  • 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.

Well programmed but not inspired

John Green, Amazon
1 December 2008
  • Summary: I tried out this game expecting some kind of role playing adventure with puzzles along the way, similar to the Indiana Jones PC games. However, the reality is vastly different. The game consists of many, many, MANY, levels of screens where you have to find a list of objects cleverly hidden in a...

Amazing Adventures: The Forgotten Ruins versus I Spy: Fun House

Shevi "FantasyWeaver", Amazon
30 November 2008
  • Summary: To the most part Amazing Adventures is a hidden images game for the DS, like . But which is better? In my opinion, I Spy is the clear winner for several reasons. Amazing Adventures includes story screens, which means a lot of boring reading or screens I wanted to skip to get to the game; I Spy...

  • 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).

Repetitive and too long.

Meadows, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Tedious game, it goes on and on with the same thing there is no end, find and tap no puzzles, no logic, seek and find, seek & find. Okay for a few hours mindless passing of time.
