Not the best hidden game, no real challenge for the hidden objects and clues. Kind of short much better games available. Jewel Quest Mysteries by far my favorite so far.

If you have played the Agatha Christie games and enjoy them it's exactly the same thing. Searching rooms for the hidden objects and you have your list of suspects. The only difference is there is no time limit and no penalty if you click wrong. So if you are looking for a game that you can go at your leisure without racing against the clock then this is definitely for you if you enjoy this sort of game. Most of the items I found very easy to find and some where pretty well hidden and you also have to click on it just right for some of them. Even though I enjoy doing the timed mode over the leisure mode, I still purchased this after the one hour was up as I love the game as it's just like the Agatha Christie games.
Mostly this is a straight HOG. But what makes it more interesting is the story, trying to find a thief. There are not a lot of difference HO scenes, but the hidden objects in these scenes are quite difficult to find. For the most part, they are finely drawn, but a lot of them are very, very small. I thought I might go blind in the garden scenes (I played on a laptop, not a large screen.). Overall a very good HOG. The twist at the end to determine who is the thief, based on your "investigations," just makes it more fun.
This was the worst game I have ever had the unfortinate wait to play . You second guess yourself because you have to be 2 exact with what you click on, and there are so many items that have nothing to do with the mystery itself... if you are lookin for a juel theif what does a grass hopper a island key and an earrings have to do with it ... dont waste your time downloading this idk what to call it

Far better than Jewel Quest Mysteries or Big City. This hidden object adventure game has a real story based on a classic mystery novel. I loved trying to figure out who stole the moonstone diamond. Instead of looking for giant paperclips and 'hidden object' junk in amazing adventures, all of the objects in this game make sense as part of the scene. One of the best HOGs I've played. I also enjoyed the variety of classical music which played through out.
This game was involved, with nine people to interagate, it is a which one did it storyline. The graphics and art were very well done as the the music choose. The detective is kind of a goof ball, but that is just my opinion. I enjoyed searching the rooms in this old castle and meeting the people that are under investigation. They all are very different and seem to have something to hide, or are scecetive about. I only played the free one hour, so I now must think about just how much I enjoyed it. Should a purchase or not. That is the question.
Just an okay HOG. There were a few items that you had to be exactly 'on' to click on, but no more than other games I've played. Like most hidden object games it was too short. I've played better games & I've played worse games.

Even if this game had well hidden objects and was not as easy as some I've tried, I found it frustrating for two reasons. First, there are objects in some of the scenes which 'look' like the hidden object you are trying to find, such as playing cards, a hook, a necklace amongst others which are not the actual hidden object. The second is you have to be dead on accurate with your arrow when clicking an object for it to register as being found, which is annoying when for the reason above you don't know if that is the actual object. Very difficult when clicking on thin objects such as spears and pencils! Not experienced this with other HOGs.
Hidden objects needed to be clicked on a specific area. Sometimes even clicking on the entire item several times didn't result in it being "recognized" until AFTER using the "hint" thinking you had the wrong location entirely. (Birds in the garden specifically) Some objects are extremely small (get out your magnifying glass tiny). A well-hidden item is a good challenge but some items in this game were just plain frustrating because they couldn't be seen period ! Overall I like the concept of the game - lots of characters to investigate and many rooms to search in. However the game was just too darn frustrating - I probably took a year off my mouse's life clicking a few dozens times on a single item just to collect it.
Rachel's moonstone diamond was stolen. There has been a detective assigned to the case. His job is to investigate 9 suspects and look for clues in 4 key rooms visited by each suspect. *This game is beautiful *The hidden objects are hidden very well *The graphics are clear *The objects are true to the time period and to the scene. *The voice acting is great *The hints replenish rather quickly *The music is lovely *There is very little interaction - find a tool in one room and use it for another. I really like the game.
This game was fun you get to be a detective. The guilty party is not too obvious so pay close attention to the clues.

this is a very relaxing game with nice music, pretty hidden object scenes, & a stupefying mystery that'll keep you guessing till the very end.

This game I found quite challenging, the items can be quite hard to find and very small. You also have to be very accurate with your curser when you click. Saying that it has quite a good story line, the mini games are interesting and make sense to the plot. I quite like classical music so enjoyed that too!

This game took longer than I expected, some of the objects were very hard to find. I did get board with the music. but other than that I found it very fun

First, the love portion: * the storyline kept me at the monitor * game is untimed so you can take your time with it (and you'll need time) * the music was very soothing * no penalties for wrong clicks except for a momentary loss of the cursor for too many wrong clicks in a row Now the hate part: * clicking on an object & getting it "recognized" can be a challenge * there are many "look-alike" items in the different rooms. What you think is the necklace you're looking for isn't the one you need (hence the love part about no penalties for wrong clicks) * either have the dialog at the bottom of the screen or provide it on the profile pages - what's the point of showing a scene with nearly inaudible dialog only to have it appear pn the profile page - seemed redundant to me * the mini games were fairly easy but there's no way to skip any of them. They must all be completed in order to move forward and frankly the games where you needed to use a brush or steaming teapot to expose a fingerprint or unseal an envelope became very frustrating for me. And if you accidentally hit the Back button you have to start all over again. This one seemed to take a long time to get through because of the very small items you had to find when in reality it was fairly short. However, if you don't mind some eye strain and are prepared to click away an afternoon, it's not too bad. I'm tempted to go back through it again just so I can pick another suspect to see if it changes the ending. It's worth a look on a FunPass account.
