Loved it from the first screen. Gorgeous graphics, relaxing music for once, great fun to play. Lots of different engaging puzzles that grow in difficulty thro' game progression with skip option. Forget the walkthro' - not necessary - you just need to sell the stuff you find in the HO rooms on the market and the cash goes towards improving the orphanage and gardens. Thoroughly enjoyed this game and its a must for replaying over and over. Highly recommended.
Since purchase, I've played an average of three hours a day. Very addictive. Objects in rooms occasionally change, making it interesting. The only thing I would have liked added to this game is a tally board of scores, trophies, etc., so players could compare how they did. This is truly a fun game for all ages.

This is a juvenile HO Game that is cute and is very long. The puzzles get more difficult as the game goes on, but they are the same handful of puzzles. Multiple visits to the rooms happen a lot because of the length of the game. So playing the game for a longer period of time, it does feel redundant.The graphics are great and the music is easy to listen to. If you have a young person who likes HO I think they would very much like this game.
This game has it all...beautiful graphics, fun storyline, varied puzzles that become more challenging as the game goes on, great HOG rooms (that you can actually see in!)... I could go on and on about how rewarding it is to repair the orphanage. Colors are stunning! I would recommend this game to anyone who loves HOG and puzzles. You can even replay the puzzles at your leisure. There are a couple that are really difficult (for me) like the crab "minesweeper" one and the spider web. But then you can skip through them if they're too difficult. So many mini-games...so little time. :-) Just play it and enjoy! This is my third day playing. Lots to do still. It's not one of those "I-finished-in-three-hours" games (which I have done plenty of). I can't wait to get back in there and see what else I can "upgrade" on the property.
This game is very reminiscent of "Gardenscapes", except that there is waaay less pressure when finding the objects in the various rooms. Instead of impatient individual customers requesting items, you just have to find the items on a list. There are a handful of cute mini-games thrown in - a few that are personal favorites of mine - but you can skip them right away if you choose. The point to the game is to use the items to re-decorate an under-water orphanage so that it doesn't get closed down. Very cute story -- very kid-friendly. They also include your name into the story throughout, which is a nice touch. Overall I was really surprised how entertained I was by this game -- I usually go for the "darker" adventure/ H-O games, so this was a nice breath of fresh air.
This is a great game. H/O are realistic, not just a cartoon rendering. The game is well timed, with a nice mix of H/O and mini-games. The mini-games were a nice surprise, loved the sudoko. While there wasn't the "solve the mystery, travel here and there" that I have seen so much of lately, this game was great. Old fashioned H/O and a very long game. I wish there were more like it. The only reason I gave it 4 stars, not 5, was because the scoring wasn't always accurate (didn't add it the gold won on the mini games, didn't add the gems found during the H/O part).
One of the best games I've gotten in a long while.

If you like hidden object games then you will probably enjoy this one. I did feel some of the graphics during the game were disappointing, and there didn't seem to be that many levels. However, the story is original and I enjoyed decorating the house. There is also a good number of extra mini-games that provide some variety.

This has been a very fun and relaxing game. Though it has its challenges for sure, you dont wind up pulling your hair out over them. The variety of things to find, and never the same stuff twice (but for a few of course), has made this one most appealing for a change. Unfortunately there is only one problem with it. The dang thing is addicitive. I find that I must play it every night before bed. When I remember to go there lol.
I'm almost 60 years old, the mother of 17 children with 12 grandchildren, our youngest 3 teenage sons still live at home. My husband is retired and I'm a full time homemaker because I honestly do not have time to work outside of my home. There aren't enough hours in a day now for me to get done everything that I need to get done. I play computer games to relax for a few minutes before I return to cleaning the house, caring for our pets (5 dogs, 4 puppies, 2 cats, 6 kittens, 20 ducks, 3 geese, and 20+ guineas), grocery shopping, running errands, picking up the boys from school after their sports practices are over, etc.. . I was too impatient for this game to become available at Gamehouse.com so I purchased this game several weeks ago from another online game site. I also wanted to be able to play this game if, for some reason, we lose our internet connectivity (thunderstorm for example). This game is so extremely addictive that I had to buy it right then and there so I could continue to play this game to its entirely, then replay this game whenever I want. Thus far I've played this game to its entirety 6 times and am working on my 7th time. I have an extremely difficult time turning off this game once I get going on it because I have an appointment I have to go to or it's my bedtime, or when we get unexpected visitors who don't have the courtesy of calling us before they stop by, etc. The puzzles are challenging (I skip the majority of them because I have more than enough stress in my life without trying to solve these puzzles) but unlike some other hidden object games, the hidden objects are not impossible to find, and you have unlimited hints with a button that recharges faster than in some other hidden object games. I despise playing hidden object games that offer a limited number of hints or make you "earn" more hints by trying to find objects that are almost impossible to find. I delete those games soon after trying them with my Fun Pass. Our children and grandchildren enjoy playing this game, too. Our 5-year old granddaughter spent the entire summer with us ... she spent a lot of time helping me find the objects when I read to her what I was looking for. (She found many of the hidden objects faster than I did. Smile!) If you enjoy hidden object games with unlimited hints and challenging puzzles, you're going to love Tales of Lagoona - Orphans of the Ocean.
Lots of goals to reach, long play to get them all, can get a little repetitive near the end.

Congratulations to the game developers; this is the best and probably the longest game I have ever played, ever better than The Tiny Bang. It lasted me for quite afew days - it just kept going on and on ....and on.... and on ... The puzzles are quite tricky - i never did work out the logic of the jellyfish game, or a strategy for winning at the restaurant game with the pizza slices and hot dogs ??? and i hated the spider webs - but still overall I still loved the game and kept looking forward to playing more of it. i was really disapponted when it suddenly finished and i realised I had saved the orphanage from closure; but then I was thrilled to discover that it wasn't necessarily all over; i could continue the HO side of it and re-visit all the puzzles again. A brilliant game and highly recommended - btw I'm not a kid, I'm an over 60 male in full-time employment !! Jasper
This is an addictive game and you will be hard pressed to stop playing!

The graphics as well as the objects are well done. Building your castle under the sea adds to the game's charm. The mini games/puzzles range from super easy to hard (Did anyone get the Squid ones? LOL) The game is very, very long which should please those who want to get their monies worth. I guess the length necessitated "repeat" rooms. However, that makes me not want to finish. The story seemed to go on forever, so if you like a lot of dialogue you will like this one. Overall an enjoyable game.
If you Injoyed Dream Inn Driftwood! Then you will for sure Injoy this Game. (Just like it) The games are easy & you can skip!

After the hour trial, I bought the game. It was fantastic! I have been playing a couple of days now and am about halfway through. Not to say it's an easy game, I just can't stop playing. A few of the items have been difficult to find but not enough of them to disrupt the game. The puzzles between levels are different and interesting. The characters and story line are really great. In all I'd say this is a wonderful way to escape the day with.
I'm enjoying my time under water looking for waterlogged tea sets, gems and golf clubs. Tales of Lagoona is a neat little hidden object game with a wide variety of puzzles, card games and such to keep things interesting, and quite a bit of gameplay for your dollar. Trophies for the competitive folks, no timer for those who enjoy a relaxed pace, bright graphics and an old house to fix up, some funny dialogue that can be skipped if you're not into reading a storyline. This one has lots of the same elements of hundreds of other games out there, but it does it with a bit of style and flair, keeping it fun until you're done.
This game is a buyer for sure in my book. The graphics were great, music good and it was so much fun to play, along with lasting a long time. That in its self would make it a great replay. If you want to have fun, laugh and make something new, you have got to try this one.

Wow, was this a long game! I love when they mix two styles of games. This one in particular was both HO and renovation. The characters were child oriented, but I didn't care because the colors were just fabulous and so cheery. I definitely recommend this game for all.

The graphics in this game are very well done. It's fun building your own orphanage. This game takes a long time to complete. There are lots of HOs and several mini-games. I can't speak to the music as I always turn that off. Well worth the money and definitely can be replayed over and over again if for nothing else, to change the appearance of your buildings. Not too difficult that you should get frustrated but not so easy that you give up. Enjoy this one, folks!
