Summary: This was such a big surprise for me, and a good one at that. Got this for BFGs daily deal, and I was not disappointed. Although not featuring a horrid thriller, or flash-style graphics, this causal HOG was just as enjoyable as any of those more dramatic adventure/HOGs. For starters, the storyline was engrossing - find the secrets of your grandfather's past... that alone intrigued me. And then it's discovered he used to be a pirate - awesome.
Summary: Grandfather has been arrested and it is up to you to find out why. Now that may seem to be a true adventure, it actually is not. It is just a hidden object game with a story. But a very good one. The main plus is the great graphics, which certainly put you in the right mood. They are beautifully made and there are lots of them. Only few scenes are being revisitid, most are brand new, each time! The quality of the HOG games themselves is also very good.
Summary: This is a solidly entertaining iHOG with good graphics, beautiful scenery, multiple locations, long playtime, lots of puzzles, and is mostly HO scenes. The music is subtle and fits the theme. The HO scenes consist of showing you the object which you locate in the scene. Sometimes extra steps are necessary to reveal objects, which can be used in tasks or the many puzzles.
Summary: A good follow up to an enjoyable original. Like in the first the Hidden object scenes are good as are the puzzles. The part that threw me was the storyline. It was nice not to have it set in the West, but partway through when you're talking about (spoiler!) your grandfather being killed, and maybe I missed it but I hadn't known he was dead. The main character goes from calling him Grandpa to Kidd so I was unsure who he was talking about part of the time.
Summary: Review based on demo: This game is a "skill" based HO game, that is based around figuring out why you uncle was sent to prision and the mystery behind clues that you locate in each scene. They game play is simple and relatively easy. Objects are pictured at the bottom of the screen and are assigned point values, presumably based on how dificult the items are to find.
Summary: Not the best but worth a play. Good solid HOG with a few extra things to do in different scenes. Nothing very novel but enjoyable anyway. The only thing I found frustrating is I finished the main game, but when I tried to load the bonus game it told me to finish the game game first - but trying to reload the main game just said I had finished it. So I gave up.
Summary: When I played the CE a month or so ago, I thought: hmmm, my eyes are killing me in the HO scenes and I used the Hint button frequently. As BFGs tomorrow's game today release this morning I played again and thought the same thing. Also I didn't care for the mini-games, easy or not, I just skipped them because of the crummy mechanics as others have mentioned.
Summary: DISCLAIMER: I only played the one hour demo, so I cannot testify to how long it will take to finish the game. Also, since I never had to look at the strategy guide, I don't know how helpful/unhelpful it is. I loved this game. In my opinion, it did what few sequels do, fix what didn't work and not mess up the elements that did work. The story starts with a baron being arrested on suspicion of being Captain Kidd.
Summary: A good game ruined by awful mechanics in 2 puzzles and forced marches to locations. Some improvements (shooting gallery less cluttered and distracting, logical trophies to achieve) from the first game, but glaring failures with the mechanics for otherwise decent puzzles (2, later in the game). Fun and challenging was turned into torture (got a headache) by forcing 8 clicks where others would have click and drag, once.
Rädda farfar från fängelset i "hitta saker i en bild"-spel
25 October 2013
Excerpt: Äventyrs och pussel / hitta objekt i en bild Spelidé I detta spelet så befinner du dig på 1700-talet och din farfar har blivit arresterad anklagad för att vara en pirat. Det är nu upp till dig att lösa detta problemet och det gör man via att hitta saker i en bild och lösa enklare pussel. Spelet är uppdelat i två delar kan man säga för dels ser man en översiktlig bild där man kan välja var man vill söka efter saker. Sökandet går efter hur sakerna ser ut mer än ord.
Pros: Ok grafik
Cons: Ganska upprepande spelidé och saknar stämning
