this game was fairly easy-the objects were not that difficult to find, but the i liked the story. putting together inventions was cool. finding objects that didn't belong in certain times was easy, but all in all it is an ok game...

I like the Clumsy's. I like how they teach you things as you find hidden objects. Some things are repetitive and the hint isn't the best, but it still is a very good game.

This game combines the fun of hidden object and interactive play with and educational theme. I enjoyed playing and am now on my third time through and am spending a little more time listening to the historical facts about each place I visit.

This game is a solid HOG with quality graphics and good voiceovers. The funny opening sequence drew me in, but the game didn't deliver. The professor (of course with a German accent and mad hair) travels back from prehistoric time and accidentally brings back a butterfly. This changes the entire course of history. Unfortunately the rest of the game has little humor. The game just never took off for me. Quite literally. You travel mostly around the beginning of the industrial era. You even visit Edison twice (albeit two different scenes). If the entire history was changed, I wanted to visit other time periods. You find objects to construct inventions. Putting the invention together is difficult mostly because you have to pick the items together in a certain order, which isn't at all intuitive and you're offered little direction. The mini-games also had the same problem. Then you find objects that are "out of time"- but this is also stuck in a particular time period. The objects are always modern like cell phones, computers, etc. This got to be repetitive. The developers missed a great opportunity to have some fun with this idea. There are also gadgets that you put together and help you find objects. They could be interesting, but they're never properly explained. If you're looking for a better time travel game, try Mushroom Age, where you actually travel to many different time periods, plus great humor, an imaginative story line and engaging mini-games.
You know those HOs where the scenes are too short and the format is identical for each one, so it just gets to be annoyingly repetitive, and you find yourself thinking 'How long is this going on for? Is anything interesting going to happen?', and you know in your heart the answer is no? Well, this is one of those. There was no story or plot progression of any kind; the graphics were so vague and cartoony I ended up finding many objects by clicking on promising-looking shapes (not helped by the fact that the objects are mostly unrecognisable machine parts rather than 'normal' objects). The 'remove the modern objects' thing seems to be just to artificially prolong each scene by making you go over it again for absolutely no reason at all. And the guy with the dreadful mock-Austrian accent (as a European I find it just insulting really) became unbearable to listen to very quickly, and boy does he do a lot of talking! I'm not even sure about it's suitability for children as often the objects are things like knives and scalpels which you sometimes use quite destructively, I'm a bit uncomfortable with that as a message for youngsters. Overall, it seemed poor quality, poorly thought-out and hurriedly-produced.
I have mixed feelings about this game, it is challenging and certainly different from most HOGs. However, I came away still not sure if I liked it or not. The HOs are all shadow finds and you use the finds to construct inventions. Sometimes it’s quite hard to find the objects, but there is no real punishment for lots of clicks (except you lose percentage marks) and the hint button recharges quite fast. The mini games are also challenging - well to me anyway, but this could be due to my ineptitude for these sorts of mini games! Overall the game is interesting and quite fun, the story line makes sense although not interest grabbing. I guess for me I like finding HOs in a variety of ways and the shadow finds are the least interesting to me, but this is my bias so I didn’t mark the game based on my prefernce. I would say try it and see if it appeals to you, as the graphics are lovely and putting together the inventions was certainly fun.
Lately I've been playing quite a few games with not much instruction on what to do and I've pretty much figured it out and enjoyed most of them but this once just SUCKS in MY OPINION as I absolutely can not stand games that keep track of you heaven forbid wrong clicking (insert HUGE eyeroll here) which this does. Just couldn't get into this one AT ALL. Most things pretty hard to find and fit back into the scene. I'd give this a big ole ZERO if I could. Oh and at the beginning the dialog seemed to drag on and on. The little old man's voice was nothing but annoying! You may play this and just love it but definitely not for me.
This is a good game but unfortunately i cant past the second level, but ill keep trying, Good Game though, and the Makers of these games very good!

For once I can say I actually got my money's worth! They advertise 90 scenes and even after hours worth of play, I'm still not through the game. I'm not really fond of finding the objects by their shadows, but this game is decent because the objects are fairly easy to find. Their not hidden so well that you have to resort to using a hint, and most of the objects are the right color... I like that within the scenes are special sparkly areas that have more objects in them to find. Once you find all the pieces, you have to construct the object that was discovered in that time period. Very informative; I learned a lot that I didn't know. I also used a lot of hints when I got tired, and thank goodness they recharge quickly! I didn't notice any penalty for using the hints, but I wasn't looking. Once you completed the invention, you have to remove all the modern objects. This got a little repetitive, but the moderns are pretty easy to spot, and it fills out the game a little. The mini games are really easy, but I enjoy finding the differences without getting frustrated. Refilling your fuel meter got more difficult the farther into the game I got, so that livened it up a little for me. I can't speak for the voices or music as I almost always mute them out. All in all, I'd definitely recommend this game (especially on sale), you have lots of time to play and lots of different scenes to search.
While I'm sure many people will enjoy this game, I didn't make it thru the hour trial. The concept is novel, but I didn't have the patience to find each hidden piece and then assemble the inventions. Although the hints charge quickly, they weren't very helpful. Might be fun for kids, but I was looking for more "instant gratification".
