I had to use a walk through for a few of the puzzles. It is definitely challenging and fast paced. Not for the weak and NOT for children.

This game was different. Graphics were good and music not all that bad. The problem for me was, there is no instruction on what you are to do next, so I kind of wandered aimlessy back and forth trying my best to figure out what I was supposed to be doing. I guess the problem is this is a game that you must have plenty of grey matter, and mine is not what it use to be. Anyway, it would be fun for the big gamers.

Loved it, loved it, loved it! The length is good - not too short and not too long that you lose interest (making it a good value), involved enough that you're not bored (gaining a star for good replay value even though the HOs remain the same in subsequent run-throughs), and challenging enough without becoming frustrating (I played in casual mode). This is one in which you really should refer back to your journal often because it contains valuable clues for puzzles. The map is an excellent feature and allows you to jump to different locations which is especially nice if you've retrieved a puzzle piece and know exactly where you need to use it. Definitely kid friendly although I'd say it's geared more toward teens rather than younger children. In casual mode the puzzles aren't too tough and you have the option of getting a hint or skipping any that you may not be able to solve. Hints refresh fairly quickly and there is no click penalty in casual mode. I do recommend you take a look at this one!
At first I thought I would like this game. My vision is not the greatest, and the hidden picture scenarios, junkpiles though they are, were far easier for me than a lot HOG's, very sharp and clear. What really lost me here was the lack of logic. I kept wandering from screen to screen trying to figure out where the stuff I needed was hiding, with no decent clues, even from the hints. What pyramid? There are like five of them. Once objects become available, you are so far past that part of the story that you can't remember what you needed them for. I had to keep notes, and still was forced to use the hints extensively. There is no logic to going into a scenario only to find that the knife you just found is not the knife you need. Some scenarios asked you to use process of elimination, often up to six times. (Seriously, folks, learn the map, it will save you a lot of time.) The final scenario was logically way past ridiculous.
Fun, challenging, got my money's worth. Lots of enjoyable puzzles. I'm not giving it a kid friendly rating since it sorta involved female bondage (tied up girl), but would be fine for teens.

This game challenged me with my puzzle working skills. I enjoyed the storyline and also the challenges you have to do that helped you keep on track. A couple times I was all over the map trying to figure out what was next. This was at the empty village at the base of the pyramid. After I found out I thought I am so glad I was not doing this in real life because no one would make it out. :) The mini games were also challenging for me especially the pairs of symbols. I still don't get it so that one I had to skip. Kudos to those who solved that one. I am looking forward to the next one. Great game. It has expanded my gaming.
I enjoyed this game because it made me use my noggin! I like that it mixes HO, with puzzles and mini games to change things up and keep you entertained. The patience comes in when you have to repeatedly click on the map to get places, and also you need to remember where on the map the HO games are located because you have to go back to them at different times through out the game for different objects. You also need to find symbols at different locations and go back and forth to set them correctly, and when you get to the telescope you actually have to click 36 times to log all the constellations into the journal! A little repetitious, don't ya think!? For this reason I gave it 4. All in all it's a fun game, just be sure to relax and have patience while playing it. I downloaded it as the free game of the day.
Great tunnel challenge, great final mini-game. makes one think

This is the kind of game that I like to play. It was definitely challenging. Took me several days, in lieu of hours, to complete. Need more like this!!

I reallly enjoyed this hidden object game. I like that there were different mini puzzles along with the hidden objects and that you had to figure out what to do to solve the game. Plain hidden object to me are boring but coupled with trying to solve what to do next to move forward in the game makes it fun and interesting. Best feature- if you got stuck and couldn't figure out what to do next the Hint button was extremely helpful- never had to leave game to finda walkthrough.
The game was very involved and at certain times it was very helpful that they included a truly useful "hint". The hints give you good info and directions on how to solve the "jam".

I thoroughly enjoyed this game. The timesaving map was ideal for quickly getting around. Spent a lot of back and forth time until I figured out the next step. The in-game strategy hints were great!! I would definitely recommend this game.

I loved this game from beginning to end although I have to admit that I had to rely on the strategy guide (walkthrough) found at Gamezebo.com to complete this game. I played the entire game in one day and hated to stop to eat. My 5-year old granddaughter tried to help me and was able to find some of the hidden objects before I did. This is not a game for children but if they enjoy looking for hidden objects as my granddaughter does, let them help you find them by reading to them what you're looking for. Most of the puzzles were too difficult for me to solve without using the strategy guide that I mentioned above and I couldn't easily remember where certain places were located that are needed to go to in order to perform various tasks. (Old age perhaps???) I was determined not to go to bed until I completed the entire game. I'm going to play this game again tomorrow!
This is a really nice IHOG,but it is a tough one. Lots of things to do and IMO too much back and forth.I almost gave up because of having to set those lights,and would have if Ihadn't found a walkthrough. This game is nice looking,and good length,but still hasn't toppled my favorite 'Midnight Mysteries-The Salem Witch Trials'. I believe IHOG lovers will appreciate this one. :D

I could tell they really put a lot of work in developing this game. I totally enjoyed it. At the very beginning your given a map of all the scenes you're visiting. You're working on a lot of scenes at one time by the end of this game. Some of the puzzles were different and innovative, like where you would slide whole columns and rows to figure out how it went together. There's a fish puzzle toward the end of the game that's really interesting too, the pieces would keep having fish move through them, see for yourself to know what I mean. Other thing were innovative as well. Always so good to move away from boring main stream. The music was good, as well as graphics, all the scenes were real interesting too. Everything about this game was very interesting. Even had great animation. Another huge plus is they don't time you to death like a lot of games do. This means you have all the time in the world to actually think, and look. The only thing I could say bad about this one is especially toward the end it got very confusing at times to know what to do next. Despite this I still think this is a great 5 star game. Great innovative, independent thinking and quality work went into this one. I most definitely would like to see more games like this one out there. I hope there are sequels to this one.
The game, although fairly easy, was just long enough to satisfy the thirst for more! The mini games were fun, sometimes very thought provoking, and I thoroughly enjoyed the story line! There were enough mini games, different boards, and scenes to really keep you going. I didn't find ANY items that were too hard to spot. Lighting was not an issue, and I didn't have to use the hint button too much. When I DID use the hint button, I LOVE the format. There's several objectives at a time, and the hint button tells you how to solve each of them if you play in casual mode. Truly a FUN game. We hooked this one up to the big screen and played with the kids too-- and although it was adult enough for the adults, it was simple enough for the kids too! Sure hope there's another one SOON! Even better than Jewel Quest (Which I LOVE!)
I really enjoyed playing this game. The graphics are quite good and although the HO scenes are junkpiles, the objects are clear and not too hard to find. The story is fairly interesting without being too complicated. Some of the puzzles are a bit difficult but that's better than boring. If you're not sure what to do next, the Hint button explains what your next moves should be and the Journal has useful information too. Overall, a great game and I would recommend it to HOG fans.
I stayed up too late playing this game which is my personal scale for how I rate it. The game is a little "clicky" with having to move from scene to scene and back and forth a lot. This is made a little easier when the tunnel becomes available. I didn't get use of the last two tunnels which I assume are only for the Collectors Edition. Over all, I would recommend this game to friends.

Graphics are clear and well done. Music/sound are nice and appropriate. Not so much story going on. The HO scenes are junk piles (I pretty much mindlessly clicking around in casual mode). Unlimited hint + fast recharge + can be used to generally guide through tasks. Map can be used to jump to scenes (love it, save lots of time, especially on some mini-games). Tasks and mini-games are quite plenty and requires some thinking. Average play time. Lots of back and forth since HO/mini-games/objects won't be available if the story hasn't advanced enough yet. Verdict: It is great, but may not appeal to many people. So, try it first if you think of buying.
Absolutely loved this game. It had so many different facets, that it made playing fun, exciting and interesting. Graphics were good, HO scenes not too difficult, and instead of the run-of-the-mill minigames, it had collective challenges you had to solve in order to advance. Lots of running around, so you'll definitely get your exercise (in a manner of speaking). Thank goodness the game had a map that allowed you to jump from one location to the next. I definitely recommend this game.
