I found this game to be addictive...enough so that I played it to the end in the first sitting. It had taken a few hours. I liked the scenes and the music. The plot was intriguing. Which made the ending all the more dissapointing. The last chapter, ended like the ones before it, leaving you with the impression there was more to come. Cliffhanger? If it is...was not a good one. I would not recommend this to a friend, unless a sequel is forthcomming.
Samantha Swift and the Fountains of Fate is one of the worst game I've ever played in my entire life. (I'm in my late 50s.) The objects are much too hard to find. Players start out with only 1 hint - this belongs buried at the bottom of an enormously large livestock manure pit - certainly not in a game. I play games to relax after spending my day as "Mom & Grandma's Taxi Service". The last thing I want is to strain my eyes trying to find objects that are almost invisible in a hidden object game. This is why Mystery PI games are far superior to Samathat Swift games.
Enjoyed this game very much. Great hidden objects screens with creative placing of objects. Like the puzzles too!

I'm enjoying this one. The graphics may be old-fashioned (as others have commented), but they are very clear which is bliss for this pensioner's eyes. Many recent games have had such muddy graphics that I can't even find the objects after a hint. The various scenes are really attractive. Not challenging, but good to pick up, go about the housework, and return.

The Samantha Swift games are always lots of fun, and this one is no different! There is a good mix of hidden objects and fun minigames, and the hints are always close at hand if you need them (which isn't often, the game is pretty good that way.)

After playing the 1st time found this game to be somewhat difficult and got stuck with no hint how to continue. Will try it again but not pleased so far.

I wasn't very impressed with the graphics, the story or the game play. It just seemed too easy. I also found the screen very dark, making it difficult to see many of the items. As far as seek and find stories go, there are much better ones on the market.

I've played a lot of HOG games and this is one of the most enjoyable. I actually followed the story, which I seldom do. The puzzles were excellent and the game was a little challenging, but not too much. My complaint around the game extends to the sometimes darkly hidden birds and other objects. There were times I had to go to an online walkthrough to figure out where the swifts were located. Even when I knew where they were I sometimes could not see them and just had to click around in the area. I also found the same problem with a number of objects. Even being shown the location by the 'Hint' I still could not make out the object. The above complaints are minor, though, and I highly recommend this game to everybody. It's long, too, so you really get your money's worth.
I was aware when I downloaded it that this was going to e an HO game, but I didn't realise just how much emphasis was going to be placed on this element. I found it under the 'adventure' section and with others there was HO elements but more as an integral part of the game not just a standard find the 'random items' type of thing, there were a slight twist such as had to use a tool to 'unlock' but after around 30 minutes I was left totally frustrated that it was not the game I was lead to believe (good job I had it on funpass and didn't pay for it(though I would have known in the free trial period that I would not want to buy it)). Very disappointed ok if you like 'full-on' HO games but not for me.
This was an adventure for me...I will play it again & again. The story, the scenes, and I love hidden object games.. This one is the best

Samantha Swift games always fun. graphics are good, hints are plentiful, mini games not hard and varied as well. just enough challenge to keep interesting, but lighthearted play for the most part. Loads and changes venues quickly. should be enjoyable for younger players too.

Some of the scenes were interesting and factual in an era long ago. Getting the hidden objects can be ho hum, same ole' thing type but this one had interesting and factual items of indians, cowboys, etc. Made for a new kind of game for me.

This game was easy and not long enough. It needs to be more challenging

This new Sam HOG just appeared on Gamehouse - just in time for back to school! The series is a basic HOG, with good graphics, and a nice tutorial that makes for hours of fun - solo or with the kids. Remember to look for the lightning bolts (add clues) and the 2 "swift symbols -birds) on each screen. The puzzles can take some time but are fun and challenging. When a hand replaces the cursor, just click and you will reveal an object. When you select the correct inventory item to use in a task, a white starburst occurs. Another great addition to the Sam Series. TY, Gamehouse!
Mmmm. . . not quite sure what to make of this game at all. I found at the beginning I was a bit frustrated with it and almost gave up playing it, because the game play, although following the usual formula, seemed a bit clumsy and awkward. I persisted though, and did find I enjoyed the game more the longer I played it. Perhaps it just needed some getting used to. Some of the hidden objects were a bit too hard to find. The good news was that the hint button refills almost instantly. Possibly the designers realised that you might need quite a lot of them! The 'secret' objects that needed some kind of puzzle solved to find them, were reasonably easy in some cases, but in other cases I had some trouble working out what they wanted me to do. Perhaps I as just being a bit dense and not concentrating properly, but some of them seemed very hard to solve. I found myself waving the cursor around the screen desperately trying to locate the puzzle points for quite some time on some occasions. I also found that when you were placing objects together to solve puzzles that you really had to make sure that you got a white 'good to go' sparkle around the object you were placing or it just bounced off again. No problem once you realised that was what you had to do. I did find it a bit frustrating the first time, when I knew I was doing the right thing and it just wouldn't do it, but alright after that. There were extra hints in the form of lightning bolts in every scene, but you honestly don't need them as the hint fills up instantly. I gave up even bothering to look for them in the end. The mini games in the middle are actually pretty good and some of them quite original, which is a plus. I think I enjoyed them more than the main game. It is actually quite a good game for older kids, but I think that there are a few bits in it that might upset younger children. Despite the few frustrations of this game, there were a few neat little surprises along the way, which I really liked. The graphics are very good, and it does have a lot of positive aspects, so certainly worth giving it a go, but I'm afraid I can't rave over it.
It is one of the better games with just enough challenges and ease of play.

I love this series! I like the challenge of finding the extra hidden items! I do think that this last one was a bit easier than the rest, but enjoyable none the less! Please find more of these, but with less magical, or mystical themes!

I like the mix of hidden objects and puzzles. Keeps you thinking.

Another good Samantha Swift. Liked the story line. The HO were a little more difficult to find than the other SS games, but liked the fact that the hidden objects listed in blue gave your brain a work out to find, at times. The minigames were well done & sometimes a little challenging but completable. I would recommend this game- it is also good family fun, tho finding all the swifts & lightening bolts can give you eye stain in some of the darker scenes.
