I downloaded and installed and began to play it until I found out it was a "Match 3" game also mixed in all through-out the game.. Still gave it a try but just detest MATCH 3 games.. Uninstalled immediately.. I don't reccommend unless you of course also enjoy Match 3 games

Really enjoy M3 & Ho in the same game so having fun with this one. I gave it 4 stars because of the lag in-between scenes & not being able to use the music you earned once you went back to game....what was the point? I love opera and it would have added to the enjoyment.

If you enjoy playing Match 3 games and HOG games, you will probably really enjoy this game as I do. This game is both combined into one and you do not play one without the other. This game is unusual in this sense. I first played an hour free trial several months ago then enjoyed this game so much that I bought it and have never regretted it. I've played it all the way through several times. I only gave this game 4 stars however because it's a game that I need to take a break from occasionally, I get tired of playing it after about an hour, then several hours later I return to it. I only give 5 stars to games that I cannot stop playing without using what I call super willpower. This is not one of those games. I'm in my late 50's, married, the mother of seventeen children and in January 2013 our seventeenth grandchild is due to be born. I'm a full time housewife by choice and enjoy playing Match 3 and HOG games to relax after spending another hectic day cooking, baking, doing laundry, cleaning our large home, yardwork, caring for our 6 dogs and 2 cats, grocery shopping, etc. The graphics are very good and the sound is the same ol' thing that I get tired of listening to quickly so I keep the sound turned off while I'm playing this game. There are hints that recharge rather quickly compaired to some other HOG games that I like because I'm a rather impatient person, I do not have time to search forever for whatever I'm expected to find in the HOG parts of this game. I have cooking and baking to do, laundry to get caught up on, bathrooms to clean, and much more. I want to find the items soon then get on with the rest of the game. If you haven't tried the free trial of this game yet and you enjoy both Match 3 and HOG games, you definitely owe it to yourself to try this game.

I am very pleased with this game. It is a combination of hidden objects and match 3. The match 3 part was not automatically easy. There was a challenge to it. I highly recommend this game.

from the very beginning of this game i was stuck. i usually like the combo of HO and M3Gs. but this game jst didn't have enuf direction. i was blindly clicking and nothing was happening. the hint button was useless. i did like the music.

sI played this game to the end, which must mean that I liked it. However, we are not accustomed to waiting for each new page to load from a black screen, taking up to 30 seconds. So many opportunities were missed in this design, which could have been the next Jewel Quest. There are records gained during gameplay, to which you may listen in the music room, however you can't keep the classical music playing during your game! It's an opera story - the music is important. The hidden Object scenes were not really necessary, but OK for this kind of game. But, and this is the real pity, the match three screens were new and clever, with fun powerups and just difficult enough to challenge. I hope these game makers will try again, or even work on this game a bit more. The idea is good, the execution, unfortunately, not good enough.

i played this game as long as I could; However, I found the delay times between sceens just to frustrating to stay until the end of the game. I believe I spent more time watching a black screen than playing. Alsi I am not a fan of combining match 3 and HOG features into the same game as I believe it make a generally poor game overall.

I bought this game when I realized how fast the free trial went by! I like this type of hybrid game; it combines Match 3, Hidden Object, puzzles, and plot! Good graphics helps to overcome some weak English as a second language. Intricate plot keeps your attention. The background music tends to be very repetitive. Very basic tutorial. Hint: the question mark in the upper left is a very good reference in terms of your bonus options, obstacles, and features. The timed mode is very challenging; I actually preferred relaxed mode. The bonuses are purchased uising money you win in each round. Some bonuses are extremely useful (Scissors for eaxample), and some can be expensive (the Bomb is a great tool). There are many rooms to investigate, but two of them are irrelevant: one singer is "away" so his 2nd flr room is locked; the other is the music conservatory which houses albumns you win as you play. Hint: a very valuable feature shows the glittering areas to explore - you can just keep playing th M-3 game; the computer will tell you when it's time to investigate. Also the there is no penalty for using the hint if there there is nothing to do in a room; there is a hint delay on the HO games. Finally, you can skip any puzzle (some of them are quite difficult). Very enjoyable game!

This game is, for me, a fun blend of Match 3 and Hidden Object adventure. Good graphics and music. First time through I am playing in relaxed mode without timer.

I have never experienced a game that was so slow loading between segments. It totally put me off. The game itself had some different puzzles; hidden object for example, but didn't keep me interested in following the story.

There is no real flow or pace to this game. More time was spent on graphics then flow or thought. You play 3 match it games which are boring just to get one clue, then you play a HOG to get help in your Match game. The crime scene is not your typical where you get a bunch of clues and play a few games in between. It left me feeling bored, confused and dumbfounded. Not worth your time you are not missing out on anything. If you are looking for something fast paced and fun this is not your game. If you prefer to play a game while sleeping with your head in your hand this then would be for you.

I thought this game would be good: After all, it's a combination of both Match 3 and Hidden Object, so what's not to like? The answer is just about everything. You must play Match 3 levels in order to be allowed to find another clue or go to another hidden object scene. I was playing in timed mode, and after about the first 20 or so levels I found myself having to replay the match 3s over and over in order to beat the timer. Then I would be taken back to the opera scene with mediocre graphics and perhaps allowed to do one thing before having to go back to more match 3 play. And the time between screens seemed interminable. This is not a well constructed game. After the first couple of hours and a lot of eye strain trying to play the match 3 levels, I didn't care whether I finished it or not.

Simple game that I finished in 4 hours. Graphics are authentic but some silly spelling & grammar mistakes. Suitable for older kids. Lacks any need to think as each clue is discovered systematically, Had potential to be much better produced.

It was very frustrating to sit and stare at a blackcreen at every change. The story game and the match 3 do not go along well at all. It made me quite confused. Most of the time, I wasn't too sure of what I was supposed to be doing.

I liked this game because it was a combination of matching and hidden objects and interactive. You get to interact with characters. One and only one thing I did not like is the waiting for the pages to load.
