Summary: There is not much I can add to what has been said by others. I simply adored this game. It was made with love, graphically well done and even had a good story. The music was not very good though. This game comes close to Snark Busters, but it lacked the humour found in that game (and the over the top, but appropriate music). It also came close to Hodge Podge, but it lacked the magic of that game. That is why I don't rate it 5 stars.
Summary: I do not understand at all, why such a lovely looking game does not take notice of adequate music. The music is so terrible, that it even prevents me from going on with the game. Absolutely awful!!! Compare "Robin" against it - also playing in an middleage surroundings...
Summary: A fun little game but nothing special. The story was actually quite cute, I always like FROGs so I did enjoy that, the mini-games were so easy that they almost didn't exist (and a few times they solved when they shouldn't have...but that happened on games I didn't really care for anyway so no complaints there). There were some creative solutions in the adventure part of the game and I liked that you sometimes had to use more than one object to arrive at the solution.
Summary: This is a beautiful game. The colors are bright and pleasing and the art work is very imaginative and fits the theme of the game. It was a delight to play. The HO scenes were all silhouette, which I liked a lot..it was different than the same old 'hunt for stuff'. The puzzles were good and just the right challenge. Some could have used a little more in depth explanation, but there is a skip button if you get stuck.
Summary: Let me say first that my review is from downloading the trial and then removing it after a half hour of play so I really don't have a very deep experience level on this game. However; like many of the other reviewers here I too felt that the game looked great, but wasn't challenging in the manner I've come to expect. I only give the review because if you basically want challenge in your games then you'll probably do as I did.
Summary: Pied Piper is a nice adventure FROG that has pleasant music and is funny in it's own cartoonish way. I rather enjoyed it, but it does seem somewhat short compared to some of the other Alawar releases. The graphics are well done, nice, and colorful. I suggest this game if you want a break from a lot of thinking. Other than that, there is little I can add to what the other reviewers have already said. I did buy this one!
Summary: I agree pretty much with the reviewers below, who’ve covered off the important points of the game. If you don’t take Oddly Enough: Pied Piper too seriously, or too critically, you’ll have a good time. There were a few things that could have used some polish. It’s true the puzzles were generally very easy, but a few were almost unsolvable due to fundamental steps being left out of the instructions.
