I tried to play this game but, I could not find any positive reason to play much past the first 30 minutes. I was waiting for the game to improve, but it seemed to me like it was getting worse. The HOG scenes are a pile of little items , none of which are related to the flow of the game. The quizzes make little or no sense, or fail to work when completed. The cut scenes are long and consist of very hard to read test, that beg for skipping. After 30 minutes, I had the choice to watch paint dry or continue this game, i went for the paint and found it more enjoyable. +
i like that this game has a LOT of old fashioned HO scenes. nice change. i like in the HO scenes the masks that surround the items u find-but the sound that accompanies the masks becomes annoying fairly quickly. there is quiet a bit of dialogue in this game, but u read it as quickly or slowly as u wish-it did not detract from the game for me. the story was interesting. there were a lot of minigames-they went from being easy to being very difficult. i became frustrated with them because there was no reset button-u jst had to skip the puzzle. thank goodness for the skip button. all in all a nice game. satisfying ending...
The graphics are probably the best part of this game, and that isn't saying much. There is no option for widescreen and no spoken dialogue. There is a lot of text dialog that you have to click through. And the text is tiny and in an odd font that makes it a little hard to read. The HO scenes are cluttered with tiny objects. If I didn't have a 21" monitor, I don't think I would have been able to play at all due to the eye-straining text and the small objects. And then there were 2 puzzles that I had to skip. The first one, matching symbols to a wheel with letters was not only confusing, but the letters never really lined up. I followed the directions, but couldn't make it work. The other puzzle I had to skip was the wiring one. I got all the wires to their destinations, but it didn't trigger the end of the puzzle. I fiddled with it for several minutes after I had it complete, but had to skip it in the end out of frustration. All in all, the game lacks polish and appears to have some performance bugs. I wanted to like it, as it's set in Seattle (near my home). You might want to try it to see if you like it better than I did.
I gave this game about 20 minutes of my time and then deleted. The graphics were not that great, it was just HOs over and over. No real plot, no puzzles, etc. I played games like this 6 or 7 years ago. This needs to evolve more.

This game had a lot of hidden object screens but there was way too much dialogue. I ended up skipping it all because it was just too much.

This was a very boring game. Come on Gamehouse people, you usually have some really fast paced, extremely exciting, easy to see, not a strain on the eyes games.......but this game was the complete opposite. I really can't recommend this game at all.

Fun as an old fashion hidden object game. Not for kids due to subject matter of the story. Doesn't require much thought process. Turn off the sound effects for a more relaxing game. Would have been very disappointed if I had paid for this game. Not worth the price.

Very repetitious with the hidden object screens. Certainly not fast-paced and I found the chief detective very pompous and annoying. Certainly not one of the better games I have played.

I like to find something good to say about a game, but this one makes it tough. The graphics were okay, but not great; there was far more dialogue than necessary, and it just seemed to be a way to get you from one HO scene to another; and the sound produced by violin strings when you found an object was strident and extremely irritating. I wound up turning the sound off to avoid the noise. Additionally, most of the puzzles were absurdly easy. The couple that did provide a challenge did not have a reset button, so you were forced to skip it if you didn't get it right. This looks like a game from a new company with designers having little or no experience. I know everyone has to start somewhere, but shouldn't we be past these amateurish attempts at the publishing stage?
Just hidden objects and no story or thinking involved. You get a few things in inventory, but its a no-brainier what to do with them.

First, let me say that I only played the one hour free trial version. It is a standard, so far, HO game and I loved it. Finding the objects were pretty easy. The hint button was amazing. When you clicked on the hint button the scene grayed and the HO turned a bright orange. WOW was that a nice change. And the hint button refilled quickly when playing the casual version. The mini games were different which is a good thing. Also, they could be quickly skipped. So far, it's definitely worth the money.
Fairly good game. Not to difficult, not to easy. If you like HOGs, this one is fun!

I had to give this game a 1. I like games that have a good story line and are challenging. This game was extremely repetitive with absolutely no gameplay whatsoever. The plot was minimal and extremely boring. I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone.

This is not the best hidden object game, like I said, but it's not the worst. The games are pretty simple. I didn't find anything to annoy me but,in the same time, the game is not very intriguing.

Honestly there wasn't anything I liked about it and I only played it for like a few minutes. Graphics were the worst and there was nothing hidden or difficult to find. Not much of a challenge.
