Not for adults
3 May 2013
Summary: I wouldnt recommend this for adults or kids that are much older than 10. You go down paths entering rooms. Once in the room its hide and seek. Click on the "flowers, tools, misc other things" in the room. Cant believe they make a product like this anymore...
Summary: I was a little disappointed that this one won't run on my laptop but it does work on my old PC so I play it occasionally. It is a little hard to see some of the hidden objects but I managed to get through it anyway.
Summary: I have to give the game kudos for trying. It is a very interesting storyline, with okay graphics and decent sound - but my god, there are no hints except for a vague barely noticeable sparkle (and you'll want hints, trust me) and the mini-puzzles are repetitively and some of them require a video to assist you in solving them. That seems a little too complicated for me, especially when the HO areas themselves are very unclear and have the objects hidden too well, I think.
Summary: This game might be good for a tween without much gaming experience to play on his/her own. The story is o.k. There is nothing offensive. However, everthing is very basic and the game is short. The puzzles and tasks are pretty simple and staightforward. Our family played this together and all of us agreed that it was too easy. We were kind of glad that it was so short, as it didn't hold our interest very long.
Summary: I'm writing this after having played the next one, and playing this one second because I liked the second game and wanted to see how this one was. There is a remarkable difference between the two. Since this was the earlier game, I did not expect the gameplay to be as polished as the second game. The graphics in this game were decent but on the coarse side.
Summary: The beginning of the game was very easy. Then all of a sudden it got to a level where you had to guess a combination which could take thousands of different combo's. This is where I stopped it was just boring and rediculas to play that level.
Summary: HuuuuuuuM ! Why couldn't have the graphics been polished ? They're not bad ! But for a 2008 game, they're not really up to standards ! Glad to find, anyway, that it is more an adventure than a HOG, although I have no idea why the developers included HO scenes as they all fall like a wig on a plate of soup. The story ? WHAT STORY ? Oh, yes !....kind of simple, isn't it ? Oversimplified, even, not to say lame. SO the game is bad, hey ?
Summary: This was a nice gift and has good graphics. However, some of the tasks are difficult and can prevent you from enjoying the hidden object portions of the game. Wish it had more hints & clues built in to each phase. The seller sent it right away and in good shape. However, it's overpriced and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else.
