This game was terrible. You look for pieces of seals which you place (click in the middle) on a puzzle grid & then solve the puzzle to unlock a piece of a holy relic which you complete to solve (end) the game. You start the game with 9 hints which you need because the grapics are so poor in some areas you can't see what you're looking for. You can get extra hints by clicking on the gold stars but the game doesn't tell you that I found it on accident. I ended up just clicking everywhere at random to complete a couple of sceens. It seems like the creator's came up with a really good idea and got bored half way through and just quit. The only good thing about this game is it took 1 hour to complete.
I have never rated one star for a game. All have redeeming qualities that rate at least a 2 or 3 for me. Nope ... zilch .... nada .... a big ZERO. An untimed mode would have saved this game from the gutter. Unfortunately, there are only 9 hints for the whole game, unless you look for stars (and, when do you have time for that?). Having to repeat scenes over and over again because I couldn't find all the objects within the short amount of time, made me want to throw my keyboard across the room. Fortunately, I need it to play all the other cool games I have. Whomever created this game needs to take it back to the drawing board and do some serious re-designing.
This game is really boring and it takes an hour to end it. Sometimes it's not easy to find out objects because of the bad light-contrast... and I've a high quality pc !!! The end is astonishing because you can't believe you have finished the game yet! Don't buy it never never never.

I needed the Hubble to find some of the objects, and what's this business with 9 clues for the whole game.I'd call it a dog, but that would insult dogs everywhere.

I always like hidden object games, but this one is just too boring to play. not enough hints to use, had to use most of them to find There were no explanations given on what you were supposed to do in certain scenes. I would give this game a pass. I gave this game 1 star because I couldn't figure out how to give it a half star.

I really was excited about this game from reading the description, however the description was the best thing about the game. Some of the objects were so miniscule that I had a hard time finding them even after clicking on a hint. A few of the mini games were boringly simple and others were boringly hard. The "plot" was difficult to follow and sometimes it was hard to figure out what was needed as the directions were non-existent and then the game suddenly ended.
Well, this could have been a good game, but it just didn't work out that way. I usually like hidden object games, but this one not so much. It was very confusing every step of the way. They gave very poor directions on everything if there were really any directions at all. Even the main menu I had to really click around just to figure out how to even start the game. You enter your profile, then mass confusion. The whole game was confusing as well, and the objects some were just about impossible to find. The mini games were a real drag too. And get this, even though the objects were so hard to find I finished in about an hour, as the game was just so short. I mean it just ended abruptly. Lots wrong with this game, however I still gave it 2 stars instead of 1, because I've downloaded games even worse than this one, sad but true. This would've been an OK game if they just gave you actual directions, and made the objects where you could actually find them and don't have the game end abruptly in just an hour.
After 20 minutes I had enough of this game. The music drove me crazy until I turned the sound off. You only get 9 hints and it takes forever for them to recharge. I went and got a coke while I was waiting. A lot of the objects are impossible to find. This is definately not the kind of game I like or would buy

The timed game is virtually impossible, not enough time to find everything. The classic game is far too short. It only took me about an hour and a half in total. Not worth spending your money on - save it for something better!

I did like this game, but I'd like to know why the chose a Catholic site instead of any other religious site. I'm looking forward to see other religious faith to be portrait in games. First of many, I do hope!

Items are at time unfindable. Only 9 hints for the whole game. It says if you run out, you can search for stars. If they're as hard to find as everything else, I say good luck. I played the untimed mode. If you got clicky the screen would darken slightly. Didn't make much diff. , I jusk started clicking all over toward the end, before I quit. It's also very boring. The music is a loop of about 20 notes, I finally turned it down. I tried very hard to like this game, I always do but I could find nothing good about it. The reason I gave it 1 star, is there is no nagative rateing.
I tried this game only because I read the one-star reviews it had gotten and had to see for myself if the game was really as bad as it seemed. It is. This game has nowhere near enough time on the clock to locate the number of items you need to find and it does get irritating to have to keep starting over. It also doesn't show you the whole list at once in some cases, so even if you could locate them all in the time alotted, you have to click them in certain order which slows you down. There was an untimed version of the game which is the way to play the game if you want to enjoy it.
OMG! I am LOL! This is definitely at the top of my "Stop the madness and cut this off already." However I just couldn't help myself to check this game out when I see 10 reviews and they are all a 1 rating. I've played quite a few games and have done a lot of reviews for games and this is the first I've seen a game get such bad ratings. Um... forget the 1 rating as there are some games and this is one of them that deserve NO STARS. I think you need to add a NO STAR catagory. Definitely doesn't allow enough time and the so called stars AT LEAST FOR ME didn't add to my hints and as also mentioned speaking of the hints I was able to smoke a cigarette and drink about half a Diet Coke waiting for the hint to charge up!
this game was very anticlimactic. it had great graphics, and that's about it. the only thing it has going for it is that it only took me an hour and three minutes to play, so I was only frustrated and annoyed for an hour and three minutes.

The timed mode of this game is nearly impossible with the way the items are hidden. I do like HO games to be a little challenging, but this was not a good kind of challenging. I found myself just failing over and over and racing through the ones I could remember, use a hint, and then look, look, look - just to repeat the process until I could locate all the objects. I gave up after a few of the challenges. There are hundreds of HO games, and I would rather spend my time on those vs. struggling through this one.
No untimed option, and things are so well hidden that the time given is nowhere near enough. I got tired of restarting each section over and over while I looked for something. The stars only give a couple of seconds extra, and watching for stars means not looking for objects. Glad I got this free with a ticket, I wouldn't have wanted to waste actual money on it. I agree with the other reviewer - I'd give it a negative score if possible.
Lame, too easy, too short. Don't waste your time like I did.

Fisrt time that I have taken the time to review a game as most games I play I either buy or just play the demo time but this one I just could not be bothered to continue. It was boring and the items were so obscure you had to use all the hints to find them. So I would not recomend this game not even for a demo.

i played the timed game-the items were very difficult to find in the allotted time. some of the items were impossible for me to find without hints-when u run out of hints u're supposed to be able to find stars to accumulate more hints, this didn't work most of the time. just couldn't get into this game. oh, well....
