Summary: Upon the start up of the game, you were nabbed by the idea of magicians gathering at a convention, but once the game actually starts, it's all eye strain from there. Items were way too small for my eyes (even with glasses on and screen brightness all the way up).
Summary: Garden Scapes all over again, but without the fun. This time you get a number of HOG scenes and are being paid for each object not te reconstruct your garden, but your fairy aunt's castle. You have to do without the animation which made Garden Scapes such a funny game.
Summary: A rather baffling casual HOG. I consider a HOG to be "casual" when there's no real storyline and no elements of adventure games mixed in. They're just HO scene after HO scene. This one also has some mini-puzzles... but they're ridiculously simple. Not really worth mentioning.
Summary: Agree with most of the reviews here. Game started well and was quite pleased with the vibrant colourful graphics. However, as I played along, it got repetitious. As I continued through the chapters, I found the price required to restore the castle got higher and higher but the money/treasures earned...
Summary: The graphics are quite beautiful and the music is very soothing. The concept of the game is good (find items, sell them and refurbish a castle), but the items are very hard to see, and once you struggle to find them you don't get much money for them and the items you need are very expensive.
Summary: Took me forever to play this game. I just could not get into it because of the eyestrain. I was going to give it only 2 stars but I will give them credit for the nice scenery that they created, although I didn't think much of their junk pile HOG scenes with the pixel hunt.
Summary: This is a beautiful, lovely game with a sweet air about it. The only problem is that the items are super tiny. I really had a hard time finding probably half of the things on the list each time.
