As a 57 yr. old female I did not find the game difficult, somewhat challenging with the puzzles. The graphics were good as was the story line. HO scenes were not difficult.

This was an enjoyable game. Alawar is an excellent dev and usually has more good games than bad. The graphics are nice and crisp and the flow of the gameplay is good. There is no jump map (which I normally will only buy a game if it has one) but with this game it really didn't need one because you are able to use the items in your inventory fairly quickly and don't have to backtrack more than one or two scenes at most. The HOS are fairly challenging as the items can sometimes be very small and hard to find but not impossible. I do wish the game had been longer because it is pretty short compared to most other games in this genre. Overall, it was a decent enough game to pass the time and not bad at all for an SE. Try the demo and decide for yourself of course. Happy Gaming my fellow gamers! :o)
Unlike many other reviewers I found it challenging because there were sometimes 5 scenes to go to from one point. With no map, I often retraced ground. The help button did point the way, but then had to recharge. In other games, the help button often helps several times with directions before it needs to recharge. Lot of interesting graphics, many scenes. HO's are easy enough, but the mini-games I found to be frustrating at times, not because they're hard, but because they were time consuming. I never liked where you move one circle, and another circle moves as well, You could always skip them with no penalty. I would recommend this game to anyone. I enjoyed it a lot.
Game loaded with no problems, but when I started the game the game logos appeared then after Game Cartel appears the screen goes black and nothing else no sound, nothing and I waited patiently and still the game didn't start. I did the usual, cleared my cache and re-downloaded the game and I still got the same results,I was disappointed because I was looking forward to playing this game, looks interesting.

The game started out ok... no voice dialogue, but graphics are good & the story seems to be decent. (Although just ONCE I would like my "tough investigative" main character to be ok with digging something out of dirt without the use of a scoop or shovel!) I always choose expert b/c I can't stand those sparkles. After about 30 min of playing though, suddenly sparkles were appearing. Luckily they kind of stopped not long after. But now I'm stuck in the game & my hint button goes out! Normally it flashes towards the direction or object to interact with - but now it's just flashing. No direction, no object - no help. So I don't really know how to finish this game, or even if I want to now that I've seen the glitches increasing... Good luck to the rest of you!
I have played many HOG's and this one is right in the middle for me. I have a few things I like when I play, I like to be able to skip through dialogue if I want, I like an interactive map, etc. This game did about 50% of my prerequisites. I had no problems with glitching or lagging and was able to complete it in 3-4 hours. I do think it could have been a little more challenging and the story line could have been more interesting but lately I have played some real craptastic games and this one was ok.
Not to sound like a negative Nelly, but this game was pretty unoriginal and didn't have much in the way of redeeming qualities. About half-way through, some, but not all of the HO scenes developed a glitch so that I could not see the list of items to find. I had to just click and hope an item would get crossed off. Other scenes would show most list items, but some would be blank. Annoying. No problems before this, so I don't think this is a computer glitch.
Does not blow your mind like Sacra Terra but it is still your basic Alawar game with a good mix of puzzles and HOGs. Once I got involved in the storyline it was hard to stop.

I had a hard time deciding whether to give this game 3 or 4 stars. I finally settled on 3 because I felt the negatives took away from the enjoyment of the game. First off, the story line is okay, as long as you don't mind evil spirits. A young boy has disappeared from a summer camp, and his parents have asked you to get him back. There are quite a few areas to explore, but there is no interactive map to guide your direction. There is a map of the camp, but you still pretty much have to discover things for yourself. I hate wandering around without a clear direction. The hint button would show you a direction, but you had to wait for it to recharge to get additional directions. Usually the hint button doesn't penalize you for just getting directions, but this one does. There was a good mix of HO and mini games, although I could have wished for clearer graphics. I too had a lot of trouble getting the airplane, even though I could see it and clicked on it multiple times. But that was the only glitch I encountered. The HO scenes were fairly easy, although sharper graphics would have been nice. The mini games were moderately easy, but you did have to spend some time with some of them. But you did have the option to skip if you wanted to. The game actually had a decent ending, which seems to be a rarity these days. There were no voice overs, and the dialogue was clearly not written by someone whose first language is English, but it wasn't bad. Teens might enjoy this game, but I can't recommend it for younger children. The gameplay lasts 3-4 hours, which is a decent length; neither very long or really short. Overall, the game is worth playing. It will not over tax your skills or your brain, but it's a nice diversion.
Too many directions to go at once, and no map. I couldn't keep places straight. HOS surprisingly easy. Mini games were OK but time consuming without being particularly challenging. I kept closing it, being bored, then I'd go back and try again. About the sixth time I did this I admitted the whole game just bored me. I always jump on a game that Alawar does, so this was a disappointment.

This is a very basic hidden object adventure. It had no map (not really necessary, but would have been nice to show where a new hos could be), the hidden object scenes were very basic (nothing interactive), the puzzles were mostly too easy (I did enjoy a few a bit), the game was extremely linear (and I mean extremely, at one point I had to already turn two keys in a scene where there were three for a new hidden object scene where the third key was to become available). One very big annoyance: at one point you had to combine liquid from a barrel with a bottle of methanol, in the barrel was supposed to be alcohol (ethanol), but the chemical formula on the barrel was for methanol also!!! So I combined methanol with methanol, very idiotic!! Also: I had a perfectly good pocketknife, so why did I throw it away and had to find something sharp every time I needed to cut something? (Please developers, stop doing that). The game was a bit unresponsive at times, and a warning: in the first hidden object scene you have to pick up a (wood)plane, I had to click on that one about 20 times before the game let me pick it up, that was the only real glitch I encountered. I still gave the game three stars, because despite all the annoyances, I still enjoyed it. It is definitely rounded up from 2,5 stars though.
It's a nice game, but very easy, everything is explained. For example: I need a ladder here, the king is missing it's crown,... So no need to go searching al over the place for objects, all objects are nearby where you'll need them. The game itself has a nice storyline (somewhat predictable, but ok). If it was more thinky I would have loved the game, now I liked it, it was relaxing and nice. Good game, 3 stars...

Got started just fine, liked the game. But when I got to the dock, I had nothing to break the glass with so couldn't get the axe. The hint button led me back to the treehouse and then to the puzzle inside, but I didn't have all the pieces to play the mini-game. I retraced my steps all the way back to the beginning, multiple times. WIth and without the hints-got stuck in the treehouse every time.

I really liked this game.great graphics.problem was,when I got to the first H O,i couldn't pick up the plane.will retry later.

Nice and relaxing. Not too involved, HOs easy to see. Mini games not too difficult. All in all, nice, relaxing play. If you're looking for a challenge, this isn't it, but good for the beginner or someone just wanting to relax for a few hours. A map would have been nice since there was quite a lot of back and forth. The hint button worked well.

I found this game very relaxing for someone who was looking to take a break from more challenging games that have come out. Graphics were good and puzzles were easy. For someone just looking to have a little diversion on a lazy day this would be a decent game to try.

It is unfortunate that some other reviewers were unable to get the game to work. Perhaps Game House will be able to assist them. The game is pretty standard HO scenes, puzzles, hint button etc. Everything for proceeding through the challenges is playable. I almost quit at the first HO scene as using the hint to find the last object was not working well at all. It showed that the plane was in a particular location. Clicking and clicking along with depressing the hint button several more times took many tries before the plane was eventually located. Proceeding through the game indicated that some objects do need to be clicked just right. I never could see the plane though even when a click finally worked. The hint button will guide you to the next location there is something you need to do. I was impressed that when you went to that location there was a short lag time before you could press the button again if you figure out that you are still not where you need to be. When a the hand guides you to space to pick something up it does close when you have located all items in the space. You are not stuck just clicking and clicking when there is nothing else needed. The puzzles may be of the standard type but most have some unique twists to them. There is a sort of a map on a billboard towards the beginning of the game, There is none as you proceed. There are many areas through the game and once you get to a kind of new section you don't have to go too far to get to where you need to go next for something. Enjoyed the game play with everything working well and just the right amount of challenge going on. The ending was positive.
I usually love Alawar games but this one is definitely not a favorite. The story was original - I wouldn't let kids play this game. They might get scared to go to summer camp. Ha...There were lots of HO scenes - very straightforward. No using objects to get items on the list - you just found the items. The HO scenes were pretty easy except for the rare really small item. Hint button refilled every time even when you were trying to figure out what direction to head - sometimes it wasn't that helpful. The puzzles were pretty easy for the most part and you could skip them if you wanted to. I think it's still worth playing if you have FunPass - I probably wouldn't buy this game.
I started off having trouble in the first HO scene. It took me a dozen tries to get the wood plane, but after that everything has played very smoothly. It didn't take long before I got interested in the story and since it is such a relaxing game I was able to keep playing without getting stuck or backtracking too much. It is not a game if you want to be challenged (even the puzzles were on the easy side). It is a game to play when you want to sit down and just relax. Also, the creepy atmosphere is nicely done.
OKAY, I am tired of giving ALAWAR great reviews.....geesh. This game was just right. However, it was not one of their BEST games. Compared to other games - it was fantastic. But ALAWAR always seems to be the best. I was not avid to do a replay of this game even though I really enjoyed it. I thoroughly recommend it, however.
