I'm not much of a hidden object game player, but I downloaded this just to see. It's not as boring as some of the other hide-n-seek ones out there. It was cute but I don't think I would like to replay it once it was finished. Good way to pass the time....for a little while.

Wow. I think this is the most original and cohesive HOG I've ever played. The story, music, items, mini-games and voice acting turn the game into an interactive mini-movie. (The main guy sounds like Redford when he says "old sport".) I was actually in suspense about what was going to happen next in the story. That's a first for me after over 50 HOGs. I WISH HOG developers would use this game as an example of how to build a quality HOG. Items aren't hard to find, and there are 2 extra things to search for in each scene; letters that form a word and a book. I can't recommend this game highly enough. How can we encourage developers to make more like this?!? I'd gladly pay a few bucks more for a game as enjoyable as this.
Beautiful artwork that flowed nicely throughout the game. The music was perfect for the period, as well as the objects and scenes. Some of the objects were difficult to find, but you had ample hints that charged up quickly if you needed them. I liked that the dialogue did not interrupt your gameplay. You can play right through it, but I did find myself stopping to listen, as it was interesting. The mini-games were not necessarily new, but were different enough to make them a refreshing delight. For example, you had to gather items to make a Martini, which included shaking the shaker and pouring the drink into several glasses for your guests. You also had a special word in each scene. You have to find the letters, to which you receive extra points to buy items for your Library room. Here's a hint: If you have two letters or more left to find, and you know the word, you can click on "guess" and get 2500 extra points. There are also blue, red, and gold books you find to line your Library shelf. Those are an extra 1000 points. I found the entire game relaxing and I enjoyed every minute of it.
This game is wonderful! It has roaming narration scenes in-between the HO scenes, where you have to find a certain amount of the same items, for instance 5 clocks, 20 days of the week etc. One scene is in a moving car, where some objects are in the car and others on the street as you are passing them by. The hints are reloaded by finding letters that make up a word that has meaning to the plot. You also need to find a book in each scene. Not using hints and finding these hidden bonus items gives you more points, which you spend in decorating your library with items. The HO scenes are sometimes challenging, but not frustrating and there are characters that move around the scene (you can even see them breathing). The more HO you find the more dialog is spoken during the scene, which you can chose to have in subtitles if you wish. There are interactive parts to some of the HO scenes too, where you have to make martinis or make cups of tea etc – fantastically done too! The mini games are not too challenging, although one game asks you to type quite fast, I’m a touch typist so I found this quite easy ~ but if you are a one-finger typer it may be a challenge. The graphics are lovely and the music is straight from the era ~ lovely little story (although a couple of scenes I wouldn’t recommend for children). I loved this game, really original and the programmers put a lot of work in trying to make this a great game, which IMHO paid off.
I loved this game from start to finish - in fact, I didn't want to finish it! The intermediate games were also excellent, the story was told really well and the graphics very appealing. I wish all games were as well constructed and intriguing as this one.

I REALLY ENJOY THIS GAME. THE OBJECTS ARE NOT AS CLEAR AS SOME OF THE OTHER HIDDEN OBJECT GAMES, BUT FINDABLE. I LOVE THE INTERACTIVE COMMENTS FROM THE CHARACTERS BUT WISH THEY HAD SOME BLACK FOLKS ADDED TO THE GAME. IT WAS TO PRICELY AT YOUR SITE WHEN I FIRST WANTED TO PURCHASE IT, SO I CHOOSE ANOTHER SITE THAT WAS CHEAPER. IT IS A CLASSIC, I DON'T LIKE THE GOURY BLODDY HIDDEN OBJECT GAMES. FUN FOR ALL MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY.
I thought this was interesting and one of the few story lines that I actually wanted to read. It was wasy but the scenes were lovely.

I loved the book, so of course I love the game! It is very original and contains many different elements. Not only do you find hidden object, you also hear the story, interact with the scenes, decorate your library and play mini-games. My favorite mini-game was the typing. Durring hidden object scene, you have to find letters (to answer the riddle) and find the special item (book). I normally don't replay games, but I am to unlock all of the trophies and finish my library!
An elegant and sophisticated presentation. Art work was relevant, crisp and tasteful. Puzzles were challenging. Enjoyed the collection of hidden object books, letters, etc in all chapters. Music was great. Voices used were well chosen. My congratulations to the games developers, artists and testers you should be proud of your production.

Great Graphics;Great story! Very well developed, appears that the developers worked very hard to develop a great game, and in my opinion they have done just that. Objects match the time frame, and appear to be historically accurate. Hints are adequate, if needed. Objects are challenging at times, but all can be identified and selected, with a litle effort. I highly recommend this game!

Two words describe this game: 1) elegance; and 2 ) variety. The visuals are truly stunning and are not static (cars driving through scenes, objects crossing as scenes progress, deliberately blurred graphics that require player searching for clarification). The multiple search elements - at least three in each scene (book, letters and object list) - coupled with puzzles and instructive games take this from a routine object search to a series of tasks that reduce boredom. These factors, coupled with one of the great works of American literature to be enjoyed in a new manner, make this one a must for HOG enthusiasts.
loved the music in this game. was very appropriate for the time period. the graphics were ok-sometimes i had a hard time figuring out where items were b/c i couldn't tell distinctly what they were. i loved finding the letters in each location to figure out the " word ". especially b/c i could guess the word if i didn't find all the letters-and believe me those letters were extreemly well hidden. the story was cool how it just popped up, but didn't disturb your game play. loved the library=decorating it with so many different things-plants, lights, furniture, and even pets!! too, cool. all in all a fun game to play.
Game = a unique treat different from usual standard-fare i-hogs: * intriguing 1920's era story 100% accurate to original classic's text told via professional voice acting, voice-overs occur without player having to click, click - we play, they talk, story unfolds... sweet * lovely, bright period-accurate art rendering like water-colour paintings, varied scenes * story-relevant mini-games/tasks, some quite unique, e.g., find items during 'moving scenes' (while driving); type word lists falling onto screen * during all cut-scenes player still must find objects ! * many trophies to be won & money earned each scene is used to decorate our Library room, giving fantastic value-added for competitive players * hog scenes offer a perfect balance of easy to more challenging * a book search & mystery word quest each scene = other fun gimmicks * excellent hint system & puzzles / mini-tasks skippable * very good length (3 chapters = 40+ scenes) & on replay the search items change * all in all, super entertainment...
Started out ok but as another reviewer mentioned, some of the objects going past in the driving scenes were impossible to click on. Barber pole, I'm lookin' at you! Life is too short. Bail.

I was a little disappointed. Pretty much just another HO with a few little add ons. Like finding books in the scene or letters for a word. I guess I'm spoiled after such a run on great games that have recently been released. I would advise playing the trial first. After an hour if you are still interested then go for it. As always, enjoy.

Boring game, boring story. Might be okay for a first time HOG player, but anyone else would call it a snooze. Graphics are not bad, but...

The graphics seemed a bit flat but that didn't detract from the game The mini-games were innovative and fun. I'm going to play again to get all the trophies

This is pretty easy but the attention to the era was good and so was the music. It's a good basic HOG but a little short and I found it a bit boring. I don't think it was too short because I was ready for it to end.
