Boring gameplay with limited items to find for a hidden object game. Transitions were slow and made gameplay tedious.

The graphic quality is very good, and there is a little information about the history of the era. (How many people have heard of Arsenoe?) The story is rather too straightforward, but works out well. There was a tendency for the game to seize up from time to time, especially when resuming play after a recess.

I am seriously enjoying this game. Although I didn't care for the other Nat. Geo offering, this one has just the things I like. First of all, the story is engaging, moreso for being based on historical people. The story-scenes have arrows so fast or slow readers can absorb it at their own pace, which is extremely nice. The story is centered around a threat to Cleopatra, obviously, and as her prime investigator, you are expected to solve the case. Of course, you can't attend the Queen in improper attire, so first you must find your clothing.... So far, I haven't met any puzzles that were too confusing or difficult to solve, although some of them have been challenging. Unlike some other hidden object games that bring in other elements, this one gives you thorough instruction on what you're expected to do for each puzzle. This makes the challenge one of solving the puzzle, not solving the instructions! The game is also educational, in that there are scrolls scattered around with (so far interesting) information on the people and places in the game-world. The scrolls glow so you know those are the educational ones, but there's no penalty if you don't pick them up. I found the graphics quite good, and at times you really have to look close to find the objects. The objects are historically based, and not in impossible locations. A stone or tile may be balanced on the curtain rod, but it's not incorporated into the window. This probably isn't a game for kids, but adults and teens (particularly those interested in the time period) will probably enjoy the game. I didn't pick good replay on the check section, as I haven't finished the game yet, and don't know how the replay is. This is one of the few games I'd buy if I didn't have the Funpass.
This game is much shorter than the others from Nat Geo. Many of the items to be found are pretty much invisible and not found without using clues. Overall, not a bad game - just short & disappointing when compared to the others from the same folks.

The game needs a wiz to figure it out and that is not this old lady. The music was good, but thats about all I can say in favor of this game. The graphics were poor, at least I thought it would be much better than they were. There is no direction, so it is a hunt/pick game. Sorry just not my kind of HOG.

This was an average game. The graphics weren't amazing, but they weren't horrible either. They were simply average. The gameplay itself wasn't amazing, but it wasn't horrible either. It was simply average. You get the picture. The main thing I give it kudos for being different from the standard paranormal/missing relatives content we usually see. A change of pace every now and then is nice. So was this a must-have game? Unless you're a hardcore history nut, probably not. But it was a solid average one in my opinion and worth demoing at least.
