  • 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). As much as I enjoyed the beautiful graphics, I absolutely can't stand playing a game where I have to constantly squint to find items. That was enough for me to uninstall.

  • 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. The scenery is awesome: really fine works of art. The HOG's are among the most difficult I have ever seen. Many objects are extremely small. Don't play this game on a laptop.

  • 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. However, this is where things get baffling to me. While the mini-puzzles are a complete cakewalk, the HO scenes themselves are... overwhelming. Too many items. Too small of items. Too much going on.

  • Summary: It's definitely not one of the big titles, but it's an entertaining game at the discount price ($2.99). You do HO scenes and little mini puzzles to earn money to restore the castle. In each scene, along with the objects, you can find gems for extra money, wands for extra hints, a hidden fairy to reveal one object, plus a bonus for time left and unused hints. I did an upgrade after almost every hidden object scene. The objects are sometimes hard to find.

  • 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 were rather small upon completing each scene.

  • 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. Which means it takes a looooooong time to refurbish your castle. In addition, you keep going back to the same cluttered rooms over and over and over.

  • 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. Its interesting that several games have been released with the Sims like idea, where you have a secondary objective to maintain or decorate the environment you are playing in.

  • 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. It's sort of a shame because the game seems well made otherwise and could be so much more if this one thing was corrected.
