  • Summary: I'm usually too impatient for adventure games, but this game kept my attention. I liked the integration of the sound here, usually sound is just a mood-enhancer or giving clues or warnings when near a solution, but now you needed it, you rely on it. I like music and play the piano, so to me it wasn't very difficult. I think I finished the game in 2 - 3 hrs. That's a big negative point for me - it was too short.

  • Summary: I've resorted to playing old stuff due to a lack of new things. Musaic Box is a delight to play, but only if you have an ear for music and some real training. Explore your Grandfather's house, finding pieces of music. As each sheet is completed you are taken to a music box with tiles that have coloured symbols on them. Each set of symbols represents the melody and background music of a mostly well known or classical tune.

  • Summary: Like Mevo and the grooveriders, I like this game because it's different from the same games and because it uses the music for playing

  • Summary: I was appalled by this game. The instructions are misleading, the random search aspect is tedious in the extreme, the musical arrangements are weak and the visual arrangement of the music on the screen makes no sense to me (I am musical). The fundamental idea of putting a piece of music together is original and potentially good fun, but has been hidden behind pixel-hunting and cliched, irritating music.

  • Summary: I liked it until it was over, seemed really short! Big disappointment they could have done so much more with it. I would have had no idea on how to get the last piece of ode to joy, it was in another puzzle found out through the walk through, strange!

  • Summary: Without any hesitation, this deserves a 10 star! I see that the target group for this game is not the usual HOG, puzzle or adventure gamers. Personally I terribly enjoyed solving challenging puzzles and in return felt rewarded by putting together my favorite tunes. Music quality was also very good. I did not find the puzzles too easy or too difficult. I think this will be my favorite game for 2008.

  • Summary: Fun game--while it lasted. Enjoyed the music puzzles a lot. But ACK!! They forgot to put an ending on it. I couldn't even tell whether the game was over or not and had to check online forums to find out. What happened to Grandpa? For all we know he's lying naked in the gutter somewhere, with his head cracked open like a coconut. We don't even get a note from him saying "Sorry I couldn't get back in time. See you next game.

  • Summary: Really enjoyed it. The search is more point and click adventure, like Nancy Drew, than hidden object. You have to click on everything to turn lights on, look behind mirrors, etc. The next part is tangrams that can be solved musically or geometrically--or by combination. Separation into 4 musical parts adds to the audio clue value. Very clever. As pure geometry, not a great game, but if you can play music by ear give this a try for something fun and different.

  • Summary: I really Loved this game. It was fun to focus on something other than hidden objects and match 3 games. Maybe liking music and having an ear to "hear" it is the key to enjoying it.
