Summary: What a GREAT game. Not so much a HOG, but rather an adventure game with hidden object scenes thrown in. I don´t know why I missed this game when it first came out end of December, but I did. I stumbled over it yesterday, and bought it after playing the demo for 40 minutes. (Just an explanation as to why I only now write a review). ;) The graphics are very well done, and the gameplay is just great.
Summary: I loved this game! It did not follow the dark, tortured, intense theme of the majority of games lately. It was light hearted with a nicely written story that was interesting. The artwork was gorgeous and intricately drawn. There could have been a tutorial to get the player started on what to do with the pocket watch; eventually I figured it out. But there are still areas that are confusing and not clear, even with the walkthru.
Summary: Wonderful game. Not the normal "Mystery" novel found on BFG nowadays. Finally something different, but familiar. Loved the artwork, theme, puzzles ( not too hard and not too easy ), story and voiceovers. A very much deserved 5 stars.
