Summary: Nicely designed rooms, no penalty for random clicking. Hints are unlimited. Second game is included - here you will be penalized for random clicking and it's also timed, but still not too hard. This was a good game to just relax and enjoy your time. By the way, the original story is by famous writer Wilkie Collins with same title "The Moonstone". In original book the story (and who really stole the diamond) is a little different.
Summary: I've played a lot of games in my day but this one has got to be right up there as one of the worst I ever played. PROS: Beautifully painted scenes and nice Classical type music. There is a bonus game on this CD but it's more of the same type gameplay but the bonus game has a timer on it plus you are penalized for clicking too fast. Boo! CONS: My main dislike with this game is that is is super boring.
Summary: The gameplay in this game is much like any hidden object game. You'll be looking for objects hidden in rooms of a Victorian mansion. What makes this game special is that it is beautifully atmospheric. The drawings of the mansion are beautiful. The objects are well-hidden, and are appropriate to the atmosphere. The story involves looking for clues in the disappearance of a valuable diamond.
Summary: A fun hidden object game, the designers of this game certainly made the most of the Victorian-era setting. You play a detective charged with finding evidence and interviewing suspects in the theft of the Moonstone, a massive diamond stolen by British troops from a temple in India. The stone is said to be cursed and, indeed, when it's inherited by Rachel Verinder her life gets quite complicated. Your mission: solve the crime by identifying the suspect.
Summary: Based on Wilkie Collins' 1868 classic "The Moonstone" which was the precursor and inspiration for English mystery fiction including the Sherlock Holmes stories, this is an excellent hidden object game. Atmospheric and authentically nineteenth century with Tchaikovsky to help you get immersed, you as Sergeant Cuff will try and nail the thief of the fabulously valuable Moonstone diamond which has been stolen from a house when there are nine guests present.
