Unless you have supervision this game is terrible. The items to find are so small after 2 screens i just uninstalled the game.

This game was a waist of time. The hidden objects are so small and dark it is almost impossible to find them. I finally uninstalled it after thirty minutes.

the scenes were repetitive. Very few were easy to see in that the environment was too light or too dark. It was also hard to tell if you were ever really finished with a character. I just did not like it at all.

The story in the book is both a "must read" and fun! It adds to the hidden object of the game greatly. While many of the hidden object scenes are full of small bits of stuff there is also a "flashlight" object (don't recall if it's a right click or left) that makes all the stuff easy to see and find. While this game is not up to the Enlightenus games, few are. This is right behind them though. The story in the book is so intrieguiing that replay is a "must" to get all the characters and places sorted out. I found it a delight.
The things to find were often the same and the graphics were the same. The graphics are hidden in the dark. Story is good but the rest is horrid.

I played using FunPass. It has good graphic and is nothing but HOS which is kind of nice to not have inventory, BUT...some of the items are so small they are hard to see and even after using a hint to "see" it, still had to stare and then it wouldn't look like anything but possibly a flea or something. Also some of the items are things I had to get a dictionary to find out just What the item was I was trying to find and again a lot of times it was very tiny or barely visible. Otherwise an Okay game to waste a day holding down the sofa. :-)
I was very disappointed in what was supposed to be a platinum game. Other than having a story to read, I didn't see anything platinum about it. There were no voice overs--you had to read all the dialogue. The scenes just kept repeating themselves over and over. The graphics were no where near clear enough to be able to see small things clear across a room or way down a street. I struggled with this game for about three hours and threw in the towel. There certainly wasn't enough story line to keep me engaged. Just one HO scene after another with mediocre graphics doesn't do it for me.
Interaction with the characters was reading what was on a screen. That's something that would have been allowed five years ago but not today. We need to watch the character walk down the hall.

I played this game for 10 minutes in the free trial before I uninstalled it. Evan changing the mouse speed, the cursor is hard to control and not much story line.

I am a big HO game player but this game was boring. It was very hard to find the objects as they were very small. The music would put you to sleep as well as having to read the story line. I like games with actual interaction, story, and conversation. This really had none of it. I played about half of the game and could not stand to do any more. I had the picture on full view and still had to ask for hints which were not real good at pointing out. It you did not see exactly where it pointed to you were out of luck until you asked again. Hope you do not have many games like this one. I am glad I am a funpass player and did not have to purchase this game. I would have had to be asking for a refund!
Maybe I'm getting old, but the objects to find seemed really small to me. I kept wanting a magnifying glass!

Another gamehouse exclusive, and another bomb. No one else want it. It just hidden objects, some so small hard to find, I gave up after 10 minutes

I usually like hidden object with a story line but this one was a little boring for me. There was no transition between scenes, it just went from hidden object to hidden object and then a little except from the main character, which was a little boring too. The graphics were good but the items were miniscule and a little too dark (but when you lighten the scene up from the option menu it is faded and still hard to see. I did like that they integrated a word search into the mix of levels but still was boring.
So repetitive! Dependent on tiny size of scenes. Too much talking between scenes!

this was a game that was easy to quickly move through. however, the HO scenes were too muddled and a few of the items were impossible to see without a hint. also, the story made no sense at all. I think that it will be re-released with more detail added at a later time. having said all this, I enjoyed playing it because the replay was still fun and I liked the puzzles.

The game is very boring. No real story to follow, you just keep going to the same scenes and try to find VERY small objects.

The game only uses 2/3 of screen and most scenes are extremely packed with objects. Hidden objects are a lot of times too small to see and if you don't follow 'hint stream' and miss highlight you'll not see it and use hint again! The dialog is READ only no voice so I hit [next] and skipped since you can't skip it in one click. Only played 5 of the 21 chapters because of eye strain. Had to sit within a foot or less of screen to try and make out the objects searching for. Glad I used my FUNPASS Freeplay and didn't buy it!
Same screens over and over again. Same objects over and over again. I finished it just because I got the full version. Don't waste your time with this game. Boring.

In my opinion nothing about this game is worth a Platinum rating nor worth the cost to play for reasons others have already mentioned.

The good: beautiful scenes, pretty music, new games The bad: items are so small the hint button couldn't recharge fast enough, after finding the microscopic items, I had to read the story, couldn't a voice over be done? Total disappointment. Go back and make it better.
