The story line started off pretty well, and the graphics are okay. But I, like several others, ran into a fatal glitch early on, so I can't speak to the full game play. I tried every trick I know to get around the glitch, but nothing doing. I'm running on Windows Vista, and the reviewer on Windows 7 didn't have a problem, so who knows? The game play was a little rough; I sometimes had to click on an object several times before I got a response, but my impression was that the game would be worth playing, if possible.
This game is very unique you are at the carnival of the Day of the Dead about to have your fortune told when things go badly. The graphics are great in this game. There aren't any voices just reading, but that's okay. There aren't too many HO games just right and those are mixed up which I like. The other mini games are nice there is a variety of puzzles all of which aren't to hard. You have your hint which recharges really fast. You have a map compass sort of thing. You travel in levels like an elevator and that's how the map is, so it shows you the history of each thing, and then you can also get a close up and go right there. All in all I really enjoyed this game I wish I could of given it more stars, but it was just so darn short. And yes they let us see the end. Way to go Alawar you did a great job.
The game play was difficult to follow. Many scenes and items didn't work on the first pass, everything worked in an order of progression making it difficult to navigate. Also, the game didn't load properly on one of my computers and crashed repeatedly on the other. Extremely disappointing, as I tend to not try the trial on Alawar games and bought this one without testing it first.

well, it was a very interesting game - I will have to play it again because there were so many twists and turns. The story was excellent. however, at first it was confusing getting used to the navigation. The map was not explained well and I just had to use it a few times to get used to it. Also, we were expected to collect secret pages and I don't think we ever had a place to use them. Finally, there was a place that indicated the game was ending. It turned out that it was just where the game was going to the next level. None of these things took away from the game play but it makes me want to do the re-play soon. I highly recommend this game. You won't get bored.
I enjoyed myself with this game, but the annoyances took some of the fun. This is a hidden object adventure with a good balance of puzzles and hidden object scenes and some adventuring. The developers tried some different things, which were clever but too clicky. There was a guide thingy which acted as an interactive map and collectible story at the same time, however: you had too click several times (on different parts of the guide thingy) to get where you wanted to go, which was very unintuitive, so I found myself completely ignoring this feature. I did not encounter any glitches (windows 7 64bit), but I did find the game somewhat unresponsive at times, I had to click some things several times before the game would let me pick things up. I played the game on expert settings (because I dislike all the sparkles while playing), but found it annoying that the cursor would not change when you were able to pick things up (I don't know if that is the same for the casual gameplay), for the most part it was pretty obvious which things you could pick up, but I would have liked a cursor change a lot better. I never time myself when playing games, but I got the impression the game had an okay length, I found a few of the puzzles nice, a few okay and a few very boring (not so much puzzles as click work, those I skipped when half way through, skipping puzzles is usually very rare for me). All in all an enjoyable game, but not one I would replay.
This seems to be another great game from Alawar complete with amazing graphics and unique story line - BUT - there seems to be some glitches causing players big headaches. I suggest waiting until GH has a chance to fix the issues before purchasing. Otherwise it seems to be a good game.

I started playing this game because I've loved playing other Alawar games, but this one has a major glitch. Every time I click on the object that i acquired it kicks me out of the game and I have to restart it. Got fed up and quit playing. From what I did play it seemed like it was a good game.

A young couple exploring the street booths at the festival of the dead when strange things begin to happen...Interesting premise and storyline. Graphics are unusual, but nice enough. Music is of Spanish flavor and relatively pleasant throughout. Hint system is good and quick if needed. You are given the option of playing this game on casual or expert and I opted for casual so I didn't need too many hints. Hidden object scenes are lists of items or shapes and all have interactive elements. There is a plethora of mini games which were for the most part enjoyable and uncomplicated. There is a map which will transport you if you want, but again, I really didn't feel the need to use it much. Played with funpass and will say I enjoyed the few hours it took to play.
