DISCLAIMER: I just played the free trial When I saw the high scores for this game, I couldn't believe it! People actually gave two, three, and FOUR stars to THIS game!? I'll admit the first two minutes of this game were promising, a man wakes up not knowing where he is or how he got there, and he has a strange tattoo that he does not remember getting. Intriguing, right? After solving a couple of puzzles, he is confronted by a man who gives him a pill and tells him that he won't remember what just happened. After that, however, it goes downhill, steeply and fast! This has to be one of the silliest games I have ever seen! It's about about a man being driven to suicide by a tattoo! Yes, that's right, A TATTOO! I know a lot of these games require a suspension of disbelief in order to be enjoyed, but this just goes a bit TOO far. If the storyline wasn't bad enough, the graphics leave a lot to be desired, and the dialogue, if you can call it that, is just awful. There is really NOTHING I can recommend about this game! It's just sad! If it were possible, I'd give it ZERO stars!
I went through the trial and like this game. Then I bought it, and now I love it! The hidden objects are hidden fairly, and often not easy to find (challenging) and the mini-games are wonderful. They are difficult, but figuring out the answer makes you feel you have really accomplished something and can move on -- because you deserve it! I would recommend this game to experienced Hidden Object players and any adult.

Very good challenging game with an original story line. When I play a HOG and get stuck I will usually stop playing for awhile and go back to it with a different mindset to see if I can figure it out. I had to do that several times with this game and have to admit I had to succumb to some help a couple of times. I so enjoy a game that can make new connections in my brain. It indeed was helpful to have the scene identified as complete when there was nothing else remaining there for you to collect or do, because there are a good number of locations you need to visit several times to pick up objects that were not available to you earlier in the game. I'm glad I took the time to play this game.
The game had a decent story plot, as well as some nice graphics, and well drawn HO scenes. I ended up using the hint a lot throughout, because I would need an item that I had no idea where to find. Overall it was a nice game.

Other than that I enjoyed the game. I graphics were well done. The story was OK, nothing really new. The easy version was almost too easy. The harder version was much better for me. Well worth the few hours it took me to play.

wish i'd've been able to enjoy this game as much as the previous reviewers. i got stuck early-as i did with the new Dream Chronicles game. somehow i couldn't get the pencil to rub on the page to see the words that had been written there. except for me being a dork, i think this is a very interesting and challenging game. the graphics are incredible. u can actually see Victor's hair blowing in the breeze. the music is perfect for this game. hopefully your experience will be more like the 1st 3 reviewers...
This game has great graphics, good music and a great story lone, very original. It has somethings you might have to thik about, but more right along and it is fun to play as well. Very well done.

Now this is the kind of game that I like to play. Challenging, but no pressure to finish within a certain time period. The story was good also. Thanks!!

I didn't even finish the game.I don't like games that sparkle to show you where items are,and when you come across items you can't pick them up and store them for later.I found no challenge in this game.

I have to say, I really loved this game! I was absolutely riveted. I especially liked that when you got to the hidden object scenes, you had two different ways you could search for the objects, and you could switch back and forth to your preference. The plot line was highly original, and the characters were interesting. I'm not much a fan of some games in which you have to finish one area before you can move on to another, so this game was very refreshing! You go back and forth between scenes to finish many different goals. I highly recommend this game to people who enjoy adventure games.
It's been some time since I played a game that was just about perfect and this one fits the bill. There is something for everyone in this one and it has some of the most innovative features I've ever seen. There's a new twist in HO hunting. You can choose to find them in the standard list form or you can enter into the puzzle mode. In this mode you are presented with a series of shapes that need to be placed onto the scene (think jigsaw puzzle) after which the HOs can be seen. It's something I've never encountered before in quite this manner and made gameplay that much more interesting. There are some HO scenes where you're given the shape of the HO to find. The graphics are crisp and clear. The puzzles are not your run of the mill "find the differences" , "connect the drain pipes", match 3, etc. They are unique and, in casual mode, not frustratingly hard to solve. Those involving the tattooes are some of the best I've seen in a long time. The story is compelling and very original. The whole game was very well thought out and executed so kudos to the designers! It is a decent length but I can't speak to replay value since I only went through it once but I would rate it a good value. Definately worth taking a look at and I wouldn't be unhappy seeing more of this from these designers. This one is a winner!
This game was very well. It had this option in all hidden objects scenes of these goggles, that give a nice different and unique way of finding the objects. The puzzles were really good too, and had this unique addition as well. You'd put these pieces inside squares and rectangles before you put the puzzle together, so you'd be basically putting your own puzzle pieces together. like a puzzle within a puzzle. When you have both good puzzle and hidden object game play it really adds to the fun and variety of it all. If you don't mind a lot of reading the story line is really good too and if you mist any of the story you can always look back in the little book icon. Over all a really well made game one that was not just thrown together or stupid, but really well done. I hope they come out with another version of this one. On another unrelated note, I even more hope they come out with another version of Totem Tribe, that was the best game I ever played on Gamehouse it was awesome.
I love games that make you think and hunt. This is not one of those games. The only reason I finished this game is because I paid for it. There is alot of back and forth with little or no reward. Things are easy to find and so you find yourself just picking things up and putting things down. I didn't care about the people or the plot, I just kept clicking till it was over. IF you are looking for a challenge, I would NOT recommend this game.
Great graphics, nice music & sound, fascinating story, intriguing twists. I don't know if it's for me but sometimes the characters' voices are muted. Good HOG, the puzzle mode provides an interesting way to find objects w/o using hint. Happy ending, though a little expectable. A little bit short play time. Highly recommended, but not for young kids considering a little bit scary/death scenes.

If you play this on the harder setting, this game is an excellent HOG/puzzle game + mini games with a interesting plot line which had a lot of potential. The graphics are good, the music not annoying and the cut scenes were well done and included a 'skip' button for those who don't need it. I was enjoying the game until... Well it ended. All of a sudden. No end cut scene. Just a screen of text basically saying "You won and live happily ever after". The ending made no real sense in terms of plot either (really contrived), but I am normally OK with that if it is well done. This is not. Also the game is short and took only a few hours to complete. So a 5 star game, 3 star length and a 1 star ending. Averages out to 3 stars for me.
I would give this game 6 stars if I could. Great graphics, good storyline, am not sure I like the puzzle mode so I am sticking to HOs. Plenty of hints, tells you when you have completed a scene. Hints also help in the direction of where to go next. Mini games are fun and you can skip them. This game is not for kids and clearly states so in the description. I hope there is a sequel to this one, or more like it.

The game has an original story line, crystal clear graphics and good sound effects. The dual HO search mode is quite innovative. The puzzles are creative and different from the usual. The text dialogs are short and to the point. And the hint button replenishes rapidly. I also liked the fact that it shows when an area is completed. Overall it is a very enjoyable game. I look forward to similar games in the near future.

If you like searching for lots of hidden objects, this is not your game. It is mostly deciding where to go next. There are very few objects to find in any location and the game, in general, is too easy with too many blinking lights to tell you where the next clue or room is. I got as far as the hidden computer room and deleted it. Just too easy.

This game is pretty challenging. I had to go to a walkthrough twice, but most of the time it just took some thinking to figure out what to do. I would totally recommend this game.

GREAT GAME!!!!! I can honestly say I enjoyed every minute of game play. I only recently started playing HO games, being for the most part a Time Management fan. This game was everything a HO game should be. Gameplay moved along smoothly, the HO scenes were wonderful not too hard or easy, with a unique addition of a second way to play them being able to switch between the two anytime needed for a bit of help.The graphics were very good and easy on the eyes. The entire game was very interactive with lots of items to find and use with other items. Tho there was no map travel between different sites was fairly painless. I can't speak on the music since I always turn it off b/c it distracts and annoys me :) Sorry lol. The story line was interesting, different, and easy to follow. Like I said I am only a short time (about 2 weeks) HOG player and now fan, but i have played several HOG's and have to say that this game is the total package and deffinately a KEEPER.Will recomend!!!
