The story line is fair and interesting, the graphics are good, and the HOG screens each have a bit of extra fun. There are puzzles in the HOGs which add a bit of interest and difficulty. The progression through the game is straight-forward so that a map is unnecessary, and at each location there are usually 2, maybe 3 areas to explore. All items required to continue are available in these screens and do not carry over to the next area. Hints must be accumulated by finding 'light bulbs' along the way (incentive to think and search longer), however I played in normal mode without sparkles and did not need any hints to play through to the end. Some of the hot-spots are small, so occasionally thorough exploration is necessary to locate items on the quest. A couple of the puzzles are pretty difficult, and I ended up skipping 2 of them due to the length of time required (rotation of multiple tiles to get all in order). The duration of the game is about 8 hours. All in all, a pretty enjoyable game, and one of the better HOGs. Some of the puzzles are too difficult for children, however the rest of the game is kid-friendly.
