I agree 100% with Daunya's review of this game. Not too challenging, fun to play. I "sailed" through the game but didn't feel it was too short. One of the better HO games out there. Cudos to the Publisher!

I really like this game. I had to use the strategy guide only twice. It held my interest and kept me, the player on edge. I think gamehouse has the best games available for the money you spend. and they also keep them coming I have counted more games being put on their website than any other gamesite. You are the number one site for me. Keep em coming.

This game has much to recommend it. The story line, the graphics, the music, all fit very nicely together. And the fanciful statue and oddities certainly kept you from being bored. I played this game using HO scenes; I didn't try using any match 3. Next time around I will try it that way. It's different (and nice) to be given a choice. It's also nice to be able to go back and replay a scene if you didn't receive a top score. Having the strategy guide available is always a plus. Sometimes it's difficult to know where to go next, so it's helpful to have it so handy. And what a treat to have bonus material that acts more like a game than a perfunctory add-on. This game is an all-around winner. Definitely one of the 5 best this year so far.
When played on the hard setting this game was quite difficult. Required objects were not intuitive and I found myself trying everything in my inventory on more than one occasion only to go searching again. It was necessary to back track quite a bit. Hidden object scenes were well done and there were only a few puzzles which were not too difficult. The obstacle for me was determining what I needed to complete the tasks and where to go look for them. Frustration was eased when I reset the difficulty level half-way through the game. Not bad on fun pass
What a superb game, I just wanted it never to end!

This game was the best HOG I've played this year. What I especially liked about this game is the way the programmers had built-in levels of every one of the puzzles, so if you aren't happy with finishing one of the many puzzles at Level 1, you can go to your Achievements and select whatever puzzle you want to replay and simply select replay. It is very satisfying to be able to replay any or all of the puzzles to improve my level of play. AND, every HOG scene is the same way. Experienced HOG lovers will simply adore this game. There is also a bonus game that is equally fun. I am going to look for other games made by this producer.
Enjoyable game but not a lot of excitement. Fairly easy, hints recharge quickly, not too many portals to spin you in circles. Hope you enjoy this one.

You do have to think about what to use to make items work but then it's usually an - ah that makes sense. There are several HO scenes and they are not totally overloaded with stuff. Items were viewable to find yet present a challenge sometimes to locate them. The hint button does work quickly and even works well for locating what to do next if truly stumped. Thoroughly enjoyed the game and bonus game - not too short or too long.
This was a good game overall. Different puzzles which you could skip if they became too tedious, which some did. Lots of great animation and lovely scenes. Downsides were the scenes were slow to come up which slowed down play and in the HO scenes, I would click on an object but couldn't get it to move. I would click several times, then resport to a "help" and it would be the very object I would click on. You also had to place objects in a scene just so or they wouldn't work. Should have been a little more latitude there. Hints were ample in the "relaxed mode" and I thought it lasted a long time. A game worth playing.
I really loved this game. It was so well set out & the graphics were good. I loved the way you thought you had explored an area only to find thatt when you returned there then somewhere else had opened up to explore. Also great to have a choice of doing the hidden objects as a normal find or you could do as a match 3 game. It was handy was having the book to help you if you were stuck. You could check through what you had already done..
I LOVED,LOVED,LOVED this game...The graphics were so awesome, very professional, game play was great (refer to the strategy guide built in if necessary...I know I had to a few times..The story and concept were awesome too although I would not recommend it for children.. There is not one bad thing I could possibly say about this game except that I wish it could have lasted for weeks.. I'm not that big on HO games but I have to honestly say this game was the BEST I've EVER played and look forward to a second part ASAP.. It's just too good to explain...Try it, buy it, I promise you will NOT be dissatisfied..
This game really made u wear ur thinking cap :0) The graphics and story were excellent. Also, the HOs varied in how u needed to find the objects. The bonus section at the end of the game was a real surprise. Definitely worth every minute spent playing.

I liked the graphics, but the HOG's are way too easy. Besides that, I think the changing from one scene to another takes very long. The strategy guide is more a exact walkthrough. I played the hour, but am so not going to buy the full version!

This one is one of my favorites, right in every corner. If you try it you won't be dissapointed!

This is the best HOG I have played in a while. The story was well paced and interesting (I love the fantasy theme) even though the ending wasn't a surprise. I loved the HOG scenes, the items were not overly difficult to find. I played the hardest setting and it took me a few hours to complete. I loved the bonus content, very well done. Great Game!!! :D

This was a great game I loved all aspects of it. The graphics were beautiful. The story line engaging. The help system was easy to use, but sometimes it did not really help. It just pointed to the area you needed to work on next. The saving grace for this was the attached walk through. This game is a great lenght. It just kept going and going. It was longer than most HO games I've played lately. It would have been nicer to have better achievment awards. You earn/find coins to buy items, but they are just sketches of game scenes and sound clips (that did not work for me). The casual setting was easy enough for kids. I was able the get the maximum score on all the side game but one. I would recommed to those that buy the games that this one is worth buying.
I like the fact that you get to choose between a hidden object and match 3 for every area of interest. You also get a strategy guide to help you. So you're never truly lost in the game. I like that there's a bonus game section.

the graphics/story/music in this HOG grabbed me from the beginning. i played the casual version, and it was challenging. i really like that the strategy guide is included in the game. i haven't had to use it, yet, but jst having it there when i do need it is very helpful. there is quiet a bit of dialogue, but i found it to enhance the game. i like that you can either find items in the HO portion of the game or play M3. the hint button is very helpful. it recharges quickly in the casual version, and actually gives u valid hints on what to do/where to go to progress in the game. some of the language in this game prohibits it from being kid friendly, but we adults need some games all to ourselves. good job, guys...
