Good Seek & Find Game
Denise Whitlow-Holder, Amazon
14 February 2011
Summary: For those of us who enjoy the seek & find games, this is a good one. Unlike most of the others I've played, this one allows saving anytime without having to start a segment from the beginning. It's long enough to keep one occupied to the point of neglecting necessary chores! I gave the overall score 4 stars because the storyline is kind of cheesy.
Summary: Very cool story (mystery). I learned not to play this game if my eyes were tired - THAT'S how hard it is. For instance, you're looking for an object right? Can't find it and eventually ask for a clue. EVEN WITH THE CLUE YOU STILL CAN'T SEE THE OBJECT. But I want to know where it is for the next time around so I do the random tapping that gets you the time penalty. There was a sparkle so I know I hit it but STILL couldn't see it! Come on now, that's TOO hard, OK?
Summary: I enjoy Seek and Find games. I received this one for my birthday a few months ago and have really enjoyed it. This game has neat chapters which I really think are a neat part of a game like this. The characters are good and well drawn. Each chapter goes from Seek and Finds, to find the differences then to harder put these items back where they belong and then you peg different suspects, so the game is not monotonous, and it's interesting.
Summary: This is a combination of a small variety of games, including 2 hidden object games, 2 picture matching games, and a brief mystery based on given evidence. This sequence is repeated (as mini-mysteries) over a dozen times with a thin, but interesting back story and overall mystery. There is a minimum of character development.
Summary: I found many of the pictures very grainy, probably due to the size of the DS. I enjoyed it because unlike most games, it was quite a lot longer I love games with many chapters. That's why it merits a four overall in my book.
