Summary: I found this game uninteresting and rather boring. Graphics & artwork were average and a bit blurry. Music, sound, effects and animation were boring too. Gameplay was straight forward hidden objects scenes one after another. As for the story, it was uninteresting - oh I said it already! The anticlimax was the ending when the main character recovered from amnesia and found that he hit his head because he got the head pizza chef job. What the?!
Summary: Hmm. I'm not sure how I feel, overall, about this game. PRO: Objects were clear and looked just like they were supposed to. CON: They were just pasted willy-nilly around the scene with absolutely no regard to logic or sense. PRO: Some unusual and unique mini-games. CON: The mini-games aren't all that fun, actually. All of which brings us to the final PRO: The game has a good sense of humor.
Summary: Great hidden object game with new and different puzzles in betwen. I love the Spin Top games because they are all strictly hidden object - no real story line to go with it and they all have secret things to find to unlock the unlimited games. This game is great for someone who only wants the bring candy of hide and seek.
Summary: A standard HOG with a decent story and some humor. I was looking forward to playing it but nothing about it stands out: the music is pretty good and matches the scenes well enough. Some scenes look much better than others. There are a few almost-impossible-to-find objects, but the hints recharge fairly quickly and the mini-games are somewhat lame and can't be skipped.
Summary: This game is a good basic HOG game. I like this game it has good graphics. Sometimes images may be a little hard to find but the hint button refreshes quickly. I like the clever clues and the relaxing game play. Storyline mysterious enough to keep your attention. Its a good game for when your brain needs a rest or when winding down from a long day.
Summary: I really, really, really enjoyed this game! The story line is vague & uninteresting, but finding the objects is fun for a change (I hate to admit it, but I've gotten bored with HOGs, something I never thought could happen, but...). There are 10 objects to find, altho some have multiples, but the best part is that about half the objects are given in "clue" form: light as a _______; cats like it; croak.
Summary: I really like this; if the demo is any indication of the entire game. The music is perfect for the theme, no dark spaces, very cleverly disguised objects and the setting is different. (We have had plenty of New York City or Hollywood, CA, or even tropical islands, but Chicago is a new venue.) Perhaps I just have a lot of good memories from the ten years I lived there, but I really enjoy the backdrops for the scenes.
