I enjoyed the graphics on this game. It was a great adventure game. You had to figure out lots of puzzles on your own. Had to really take in the environment to find different items and their useage. I recommend it.

The game is one of those "3D", 360 degree circle around games. That's the first thing I didn't like - that kind of imaging makes me dizzy. The game also has no hint button or skip feature - making it difficult what to know what to do next. No tutorial. The voice acting acting is very good -- much better than most games. And the graphics are very good-- quite lovely. Except for making me dizzy with the circling Bottom line-I did not like this game. And I have uninstalled it -- even though it took about 3 hours to download!.

I tried this game. I liked the graphics and the story line to a point. But, I quickly became frustrated with not being able to figure out what to do next. It would have been nice to have a hint button that really helped, or at least a short tutorial.

The preceding reviews are a bit unfair. This is an adventure game, not a HOG. As such, there are challenging puzzles that require a considerable amount of thinking. This is not a game for children, it is involved and difficult. There is nothing to guide you step-by-step as in HOG games. The user interface allows you to look in any direction with a smooth-rotating display at each positional node, and the pointer icon changes to show where you can go and what you can interact with. You must find clues to guide you along the way. Although there are no help buttons, there are verbal messages to reinforce that you are on the right track or not, along with the pointer icon changes. After completing the game, there are changes you can make that alter game flow for varied replay. All in all, it is an interesting game with easy and tough puzzles to solve to advance to a new aspect of the game.

I found this game to be very frustrating. There is no tutorial to show what to do with object you collect, hard time navigating the menu and no set objectives or hints . I did not complete the first area and uninstalled the game before the trail was over. I have played many HOG and match 3 games, so difficulty is not the problem it is the lack of instruction which is why I was frustrated with this game.
