This could have been a great HO game because it's just that, finding hidden objects and playing some very cool mini games, but the items to find were much too difficult to discern without using hints, many, in my case, in one scene. Im so tired of hidden object games where you need tools to find things and have to go from room to room to remember where things need to go. Whatever happened to just plain hidden objects with mini games? Also, does anyone know what's up with all the DARK games that are coming out? Anyway, could have been better.
I did not care at all for the graphics of this game, nor the game itself. Just one old lady's opinion. It was very different though.

This game is just too twee, and too American. I know this might sound a daft statement as most of the games on here and made in the US, but this game seemed to be over cliched and full of 'only in America' phrases (just slightly altered the UK English), all in all made it for a difficult game to follow. The game itself was as others have said not really designed (graphic wise) for anyone but the young, but then on the flip side the items are so obscure (and well hidden if for a HO game), that it will become frustrating for anyone so young. All in all not a good experience and quit way before the end which is unusual for me as having fun-pass tend to complete them all, this one I fear is not going to have the 'me' treatment.
I have to agree with several other reviewers. There were some HO that were impossible to distinguish from the background. The "find the difference" scenes had some items that, even after getting a hint, I couldn't tell what they were trying to show. Lots of clicking. Got tired of being in the same type of scene for so long. Could have broken up the story a little better, I think. The graphics seemed to be more for kids but I believe they would get more frustrated than I was. I did think the Japanese Anime section was pretty cute but more variety of scenes would have been better for me.
Unlike some of the other reviewers, I actually love Muse. The concept of you being a "creative thought" is refreshing and original. The music is simple and doesn't get annoying. The graphics are phenomenal and the design is genius. You have multiple styles for your scenes ranging from fairy tale, to spooky, to anime. I actually didn't find the objects to be that hard to spot. I usually had only one or two items on my list that I couldn't find, and your hint recharges so fast it isn't a problem to use it often if you happen to need it. It is primarily a hidden objects game, but not exclusively. You have scenes where you find objects in the dark using an orb of light. You have one where you need to match up black blobs, another scene you add missing items to parts of your scene. There is quite a bit of dialogue in the game, but it isn't really aggravating. In my opinion it is part of why the game is so fun to play. The dialogue will interrupt parts of your scenes, but again, it isn't intrusive in a bad way. It is cute and makes the game seem more authentic. The actors voicing the characters did a fantastic job as well. I don't feel the game was designed to be in a kiddie style, fans of books like Alice in Wonderland or those who have played Dreamland on Facebook will really enjoy the style. All in all I say it is a game for all ages, but younger children will need help from an older person to find all the objects. Well worth the time and money spent.
This light and breezy HOG is a delightful escape from all the dark and spooky car crash/asylum games that have flooded the game market. The English is proper, the voice overs are crisp, clear, and witty. You play along with Hope who gets sent out of limbo for defeating the evil blob "creative block" and it's your job to find cleverly hidden items in some fantastic scenes. The graphics are gorgeous and you can tell the developers took their time and put effort into this one. Kudos to GH for a fantastic release.
I'm confused. Looks like the game is designed for children, however have fun trying to find an object. I've never used the hint button so many times. I usually play a game through, but after an hour, ENOUGH !!! And what's with trying to find objects in a black screen. I fail to see where this is supposed to be fun. Sorry, no recommendation.

While I appreciate the "lightness" of the story, the items to find were at times miniscule or not well defined. It was nice that the hint recharged rapidly. However, when you have to use it too many times it takes the fun out of "finding". The music tied to the story's upbeat humor. I couldn't finish the game, as the hide and seek became a task rather than fun.

This seems, from the reviews, to be a love it or hate it game. I am in the latter camp. It isn't without good features, but for me it is boring and not even worth playing for free. This game is pure hidden object: no puzzles, no exploring, no inventory, not even interactive hidden objects. Pros: - Wonderful, quirky artwork. Definitely the game's best feature - Challenging HO scenes. (If you like that - I don't.) - Not junkpile style, which is nice. - Hint button recharges quickly - and you will need it a lot. Cons: - Straight HO game, with extremely hard to find objects. - Lots of STD games, which I hate, and no skip button. - Annoying music. - Some of the most horrible VOs I've heard. There is a LOT of commentary by a whiny-voiced girl, and it drove me bonkers in about 5 minutes. - No story to speak of. You may like it, so try it. But if you like IHOGs and AHOGs, you probably won't like this.
This one's very different from most hidden object games. There's a lot of plot, sometimes it even interrupts the scenes. The art is phenomenal. There are three major styles in the game, exemplified by the first three levels. Very different feel that most.

There have been so many dark, sinister, scary HOG games lately that it was so refreshing to see something light and fun. Voice overs were great, witty, good English, humorous. You will need to use the hint as some items are very tiny or very well hidden, but the hint button recharges quickly. The game has a good moral ending. It was a pleasure to play this game. Excellent job GH, more of these please.

I really enjoyed this game. Mostly HOG, but some interesting mini games too. You had these pages of text, but some of the letteres were coded like moon shaped, or symbols and such. You had to find a list of words from these coded text notes. It was fun trying to figure out what the notes said as well. This game also has a good story to it, as well as the music, and very interesting scenes. Also very relaxing you're not forced to play under time stress like a lot of game do. In other words YOU HAVE TIME TO ACTUALLY LOOK. Great quality Hidden Object Game (HOG). THUMBS UP TO THIS ONE. EVERYTHING TO LIKE ABOUT IT.
I'll have to disagree with the other reviews. I'm glad I gave this a chance despite the reviews. This game is relaxing and clicky. It's not a puzzle solving game, it's a pure seek and find. Having played Hidden Object games for many years now, I found this game relaxing and enjoying. The scenery and art is very cool, creative, and fresh. I love the story line, who doesn't want to be a muse? I would recommend this game to all players. Some of the items are hard to spot, but that's the joy of hidden object games. Safe for family play, but younger ones may need a bit of help from an older brother or sister, or mom and dad.
This game has a very different, original story. Yes, you do have to use the hint button quite a bit, but it recharges quickly. Graphics are cartoonish and a bit quirky. Storyline is excellent. Voices were from excellent actors, and a pleasure to listen to. I was thoroughly involved with the story all the way through. I am going to look for more games from this software company.

As someone else remarked, this could have been a good game. The graphics are dark and the objects are almost undistinguishable from the back ground. The objects I located,with out the use of the hint function, were those where I was able to identify subtle differences in the color of the back ground. The hint function, when used, provides a circle 4-6-inches in diameter in which the object is located. In most cases a significant amount of clicking in the circle is still required to pin point the object. In the find the differences game, the differences again are so subtle, that I had to rely on the hint function again. The background music is irritating, it seems to be the same notes played continiously. I truly enjoy challenging games;However, having to find a balloon among a couple of dozen other balloons the same size and shape, while penalizing you for over clicking is more frustrating than challenging to me. Try it, you may like it !
this game is soo boring - fairytale pictures, find a candle, and there is 5 different candles and none are correct...... Made for small children obviously - and not suitable for those over the age of 5 - yet too difficult for the small ones...what have they been thinking of ?
