Engaging and mysterious storyline
Multiple replays with all new hidden objects
Two quick-swap difficulty modes for different skill levels
Storyline premise good though ending seemed to hint a sequel. Graphics were nice. However having to go back and forth to find things to complete quest did not appeal to me. It does offer two options for play. I think kids will enjoy the aspect of trying to find the objects and fairies.

I was addicted at the first screen. The options let you play different modes. Some of the objects were very well hidden and took thought. I like the interactive of having to move between scenes to complete tasks. I played this one 3 times in quick succession and plan on doing so much more. Each time you play it gets harder.

I usually don't play this type of game. However, this one was lots of fun. It was just long enough and challenging enough to keep you interested and not get you frustrated. Can't wait for their next one.

Beautiful graphics. The games were interesting and somewhat challenging. Some of the music was really gorgeous! My major frustration was in that by the time my one hour trial was expired and I purchased the game I was already more than halfway through. I don't know if I'm a faster-than-average player, but if I buy the game I do want more than a few hours of play, and the replay is pretty redundant. I loved it while I played it, I was just sort of stunned that it ended too soon!
I played this thru and loved it. Great graphics, storyline and you truly need to put your thinking cap on for some puzzles. The grandkids arrived and dove right into it. They play as a team, so the younger ones are also involved. Their screams and cheers are telling me they are having a blast. I checked Kid Friendly for this, but they should be older kids. Two thumbs up!

It was a good game but the best like Campfire Legends. It could have done better with the storyline. I couldn't really figure out how to scroll up the narration from characters. The sizing of the window made it difficult to find items so I ended up using the fairies more often to help find items. The ending (which I am not going to tell here) could've been better and more statifiying after going through all buildings to find items. One thing I will give high praises is how realistic the ghosts look, and they were fun to look at, especially some of the scenery which looked real! Good game for kids, but not fun enough for me.
There is a good storyline, but the endings are too abrupt. There needs to be a better ending. It provides some reasonable thinking and it is fun searching for items. Overall, the game is a good adventure.

It took me 2 hrs to do this game. While I was playing it, i was addicated. There were way to many hints given, objects were to easy to find

This game can be so frustrating. Sometimes I feel like I am just going in circles--back to where I was again. Some of the items are hard to find, and they don't let you use a hint. In some scenes it takes so long to follow the arrow to an area, only to find that there is nothing you can do there yet. Then you have to follow the area back again. Like--behind the stage in the theater. This is not the quality of game I would expect. Glad I am playing the free version and not paying for it. I even deleted it before I finished!!!
Although there were times I didn't know what the game wanted, it was relatively easy to find out once I stopped and thought about it. Some aspects were too easy, followed by moments when it seemed too hard. All in all, worth the money and I am beginning a replay.

What a shame this potentially wonderful HOG is too clicky without enough searching content. There is way too much time spent meandering the faire to various locations - a great number of which don't involve object searches but just need a puzzle piece placed to advance the story. I wish the developers had built in more combined search-and-puzzle scenes to make this a truly robust HOG. As a daily free game, it's barely adequate. Don't waste any money on this!
This was a very fun quest game where finding the artfully hidden objects seemed secondary to solving the clever puzzles. The art is top notch, and the story is engaging and very well told. I downloaded this as a free game of the day, but was so engrossed I bought it so I wouldn't have to wait through the ads. Maybe it was because I couldn't tear myself away, but it seemed to end too soon.

Lovely graphics, good puzzles and great storyline go together to make this game worth playing. Although it was very short I would recommend it for a pleasant afternoon's diversion. Not just a HOG but an adventure story as well.

Had a great time playing it and I loved how the characters interacted with each other. Great for kids or adults and good replay. Different when you play again!

I like the way how the game ends then you restart again with a new task.

A pleasant surprise. It was challenging without being impossible. One tip: find the fairies before you finish a level; some of the levels let you go back but others don't. The fairies can be a big help finding some items but are no use in figuring out the puzzles. I was going to only play for a few minutes and ended up continuing on until the finish.

I played this game twice and it was as little different each time. The objects to find and some of the characters were changed This was both fun and entertaining to play and I will play again just to find out how it will end next time. I really thought the way the characters interacted with me was very interesting, because they responded to whatever I clicked on in the area. In one place I tried to pick up a gear and the gentlemen yelled at me 'not to touch that' -then when I tried again he said something about rotton eggs- then something else, until I left. (so funny) So, don't let the name scare you away, these ghosts are only around for our amusement. It was also nice to wander about and decide on my own where I wanted to go next. (which also changes the game each time you play) The graphics and sound effects added to the whole park experience.This was worth the trip...
With some vacation time at home between bursts of spring cleaning I have been looking through older games and found this one. The story is interesting, the graphics are nice and for those who like to go to such events it may spark nice memories as it did for me. Gameplay is a nice mix of HO's and point and click adventuring. HO's change each time you play and the little fairy side hunt makes you look closely, everywhere! You have a magnifying glass (helpful) and a "6th sense" tool to find hidden items. Hints are only a nudge in the right direction when not in an ho scene but that is why it is called a hint, just enough info to make you go ok, now I know what to do. Story and game are not difficult or complex, but it certainly worth spending a little down time at the Renaissance Faire!
I really enjoyed this game on many levels. Firstly, I love anything to do with the Renaissance and they pretty much captured the feel with this game. I love that you can pan across the scenes to view the different stores. The graphics were great and the HOG portion was good too as items were neither blurry nor hidden in some dark corner. The puzzles were really cute and I loved finding the fairies. Lastly, the lady dancing at the end was a stitch - I laughed out loud. I just wished the game was just a bit longer as I was bummed when it ended hence the 4 stars.
I didn't like this game at all. The Hidden Object was easy for the most part - except some of the objects weren't even there! I would ask for a hint and it wouldn't allow it. Overall, this game was a huge disappointment. It was just frustrating - the hints didn't make sense at all. I would not buy this game or pay money for it. The Hidden Object parts were lacking and the puzzles were simple, but frustrating because of the annoying "Hidden Vision" which I guess let you see into a hidden world? And then there was also a magnifying glass which also confused me. There is very little direction as to what you're supposed to do at the beginning of the game which also irritated me. I did not play any of the other G.H.O.S.T. Games, and after this - I never will.
