I really enjoyed this game. Right up until the "To Be Continued" because I had a sinking feeling it WASN'T continued. And it appears I am right. And that's why it didn't get 5 stars. What a tease! So, what happens with Paige? Does she get home? Does she stay and become Theodore's love toy? What??? Well, I'm glad I didn't know that would happen because I probably wouldn't have got it and I would have missed out on a clever game.
I liked this game very much. I just wish it didn't have a "To be continued" at the end. The searches were quite inventive and the whole story takes places in what looks like a pop up book. Again, liked it very much. Lots of fun to play.

I absolutely love this game, it has several original and unique features. I fell in love with this game when it was offered in the Evaluations and have been watching for it to become available to buy. The 3-D feature can/are tricky to get use to but it really adds to the game.

It's a good game just not long enough. I go thru a lot of games. My desktop is so full I almost don't have enough room to put my games as well as my programs.

My 8 yr old son and I enjoy playing HOGs. We loved the pop-up book aspect and the varying viewpoints. The search wasn't particularly challenging and clues were available. Interesting storyline.

Cleverly done! Very unusual "pop-up" style. I got so involved in looking for objects that I sometimes forgot that I could change the view in order to find them! It is such an interesting setup that I tried not to use the hints unless absolutely necessary. The map and picture mini-games are well done. One of my favorite hidden object games!

Original, is the word. I have never seen pop-up books ever before, and the way I can swivel around the scenery and angle in on what I am searching for. Very clever. I cannot wait to finish the entire story mode so that I can replay these tricky mini-games. This is pure pleasure and joy....I'm feel a little kid, not an adult playing a H.O. game

I only got to play for 15 min, but all the signs are there for a great game. The graphics aren't the best so you'll have to use hints to recognize things in the beginning. But as the game goes on and you get used to it, it gets easier to spot things. The ability to change perspective is rather inventive and takes some getting used to. Maybe not for newbies though. I can't wait to get back to playing.

This game was fun to play and move the scenes in a 3D effect. It hepled alot being that you have to look for things that are hiiden nehind other objects and under thing. I really liked the way the designers did the detail and graphics. Lots of mini games to play and lots of action in the story line.

Love the magnifying glass and how you move through the scenes with it. Very original.

OMG!!!!!!!! i loved it all-zooming down the hallway in the 1st scene-the way the scenes were revealed by the burning pages-the way the characters from the pges of the book floated off the page-the way the scenes exploded from the flat page into a 3 dimentional scene!!!!-the way u had to rotate the scenes to find different objects-the way u had to go from chapter to chapter to finish helping restore a story to it's original concept-the way the items were challenging to find, with enuf hints to help when u get stuck-the way u have to find items from 1 scene to finish another scene-the ease with navigating b/t scenes-the variety of the minigames and the fact u could easily skip them if u wanted-the music...as u can see i love everything about this game. gotta buy it-u have to try this one-TODAY!!!
I have been a Real Arcade/Gamehouse member for several years and this is my first review. I like the HOGs at lot, but when I started playing them with a storyline, and hunting through different levels, I really got addicted. This was fun, and like walking into a pop-up book. It was a little short, but I think many HOGs are. I recently changed to the Fun Pass membership, and it fits me so much better. I can play a game to the end without feeling I wasted my money, and then go to the next game! And I will be ready to play the next chapter.
What I liked about this game, was it was a hunt and search type, but you didn't have to run in circles like so many other hunt and search types. It had logic, short sequences and cripe, the story lines were interesting and brought back memories of some of the classics of literature. I really enjoyed. I bought this and am sure I will play again and again. Good Job Thunderstorm Games!

This game starts in a 3D book display of classic stories and at first I thought this is way too small for a hidden oject game, but once I got into the game I didn't find the size of the 3D game a problem. I loved the story line of Paige having to actually become a participant in the storyline of the novels. The hints were not needed too often but refresh quckly, and it was fun rotating the books into different 3D views. The mini games were great, I often don't like "connect the pipes" type of mini games, but because this one highlights when you make a correct connection, you dont have to restart and try another route. You can skip the mini games, but I like them. All in all a great game which I enjoyed very much. It would be kid friendly probably from around 8-10 up in age.
I was surprised and delighted with the layout of this game. I liked the different angles we had to search in order to find the hidden objects. The only objection I have is that some objects were a little too small and difficult to see. Otherwise, it was a fun game.

An original experience and a great game. When I opened the game for the first time, I did not know what to expect, but it proved to be a great choice. I recommend this game highly. The use of 6 different views of each scene, make finding the objects much easier so, I never had to use the hint option. This seems like a good game for people to play with their children. HAVE FUN !!!

Headline states it all..... game graphics are ok but dont like the idea of having to use the magnifing glass. This game is not what it is up to be

Graphics are great as well as the concept. Just a lot of different moves and tools to use.

The graphics were hokey as the scenes came up from the 'book'. The game itself was nice but the graphics detracted from the game.

I did not like the "pop up" aspect of the scenes. The having to frequent change the angle took the enjoyment out of the game. I didn't play it long before I knew this wasn't the game for me.
