i didn't download this game when it 1st came out, b/c i thot it would be childish, and not challenging. i saw it was almost a 5 star game, and then downloaded it. i was surprised. it is challenging, funny. luv the music and the characters. i played the casual mode. i absolutely luv the hint dog. he gets excited when u get close to an item or location u need to go. how cute. i definately had to use hints along the way. i liked the mini games and that they can be skipped if needed/wanted. jst a reminder not to judge a game by it's cover...

This game was one of the best games i've ever played! This game from the original Scruffs game is 10 times better! Better characters, scenes, storyline. graphics! This game was very funny too it will make your kid laugh, but i did see two parts where it did refer to a bad word but did not say it! Totally worth the time to play and buy, i definetly recomend this game! Have fun playing your adventure with The Scruffs!!!!!!!!!!

I loved this game, and I don't usually say that about hidden object games. It was so addictive I couldn't turn it off. I had to finish it in one sitting. It is funny, charming, and cute. Challenging enough for adults, but totally kid-friendly. Lots of fun characters. In addition to finding hidden objects, there are lots of puzzles and mini-games and multiple rooms to search on each level. If you get stuck, the dog will help you find objects or tell you to check a different location. If that still doesn't help, you can click on the help and strategy guide and there you will find walkthroughs for each level. I did have to do this twice toward the end. There is a story unfolding involving a cast of characters and at each level you meet a new one. There is also a villain creeping around watching all the action. This is a very entertaining, well-rounded game.

I had played The Scruffs, so when I saw this game I was happy. Enjoyed the first one, but this one was better. The story was a lot of fun, and the characters are so funny - they really have a lot of personality. The hidden object games were fun and were not too easy, and not too hard. The mini games were sometimes a challenge and you had to keep searching around before you could actually do them. Each of the chapters came with a story to explain that character's role and background, and I found that entertaining.

Great game. Funny characters. Good graphics. Sound effects music with dog hint icon yawning in the background was hysterical, along with his antics. HO's were not too difficult. Minigames could stump you but they had a skip button if needed. A definite reco from me.

I was so glad to see this sequel because I enjoyed the first The Scruffs so much! This one is sure to please as well. This one is a bit different from the first game. It's still got the HO scenes and, yes, Scruffy is still with us but you don't have to collect dog bones in order for him to give you a hint - which recharge very quickly when playing in the Casual mode - but it's also an adventure game. You must collect all the Royal Regalia and to do so you need to solve puzzles and work out solutions to unlock items within the rooms. The puzzles are just the right level of difficulty and there's always a Skip button if you just can't seem to work through any of them. The playing environment is very good. Graphics are crisp and clear and HO scenes are not overly cluttered. Unlike the first game, this one comes with an inventory of items you pick up along the way to be used to solve puzzles or unlock areas needed to retrieve items to pick up puzzles pieces. All of the inventory items you find are used in the chapter in which you find them - no carryover to other chapters. There is a certain amount of travelling back and forth between rooms but not so much that it frustrates you. Some of the rooms are tricky to find so make sure you search each area thoroughly for the footsteps and room names. Your task list will tell you what rooms need to be searched. I enjoyed it enough to purchase it. Absolutely Kid Friendly and enough puzzle fun to keep adults interested as well. Please don't make us wait for the next installment as long as we waited for this one! More of The Scruffs would be a good thing!

This is the first time that I have ever played a scruffs game. The game is really cute and the story line is a fun one. I did have to use the hint button a bunch just because I did not get where I was suppose to go. But all in all it is a cute and very family friendly game. The mini games are pretty good as well.

Although, it's a fun game, this one is not as fun as the first Scruffs game. I enjoyed that game so much, I've played it several times, and have continued to look for sequels. I was so excited when I heard there finally was one, but was let down. I'm more of a hidden object player, and less of an adventure player. This game has too much adventure and not enough hidden object game play

This is an absolutely delightful game. Great graphics, clever comments, challenging puzzles and just a very fun experience. I hope they make a third game.

A great follow up to the Scruffs - you must seek out the Scrufford crown jewels to stop a mysterious stranger from taking the family's rightful place in Scrufford.

This is quite a cute game with several different aspects to the game. It has the seek objects, as well as having to fix things along the way to forward in your quest to help Scruffs. The characters are cute and lovable,

When I saw this game, I thought "noway" . But I quickly learned just how wrong I was. I love Gramps and Scruffy. What a fun, cute and cheery game to play, what pure simple fun for the whole family, as long as the kids have lots of help from mom and dad. The screens are a bit messy so some things can be hard to find. The mini game will also prove to be hard at times. But what a delightful game. trust me you will enjoy this one. By the way the graphics are good but messy, music is ok as well.

Our family from grandparents down to quite young grandchildren have been enjoying this game together. Some puzzles are a bit hard for the youngest but they enjoy helping find the hidden objects and working it all out. The spoken dialogue is engaging for them, too.

It was fun to play another Scruffs' game. It had enough challenge to keep it interesting. It has a fun storyline with lots of variety. The graphics are good and every chapter had a bit of a twist to it.

Sometimes it seems like the seek and find games are all the same. This one was just original enough for me to really enjoy it. The characters were adorable, the story line was cute, and the hint dog was a fun bonus. The scenes were big and bright and easy to see but the puzzles were challenging enough to hold my interest. I would definitely recommend this game to others.

This game was challenging enough to be enjoyable without being too hard to actually solve. I really enjoyed it.

I bought the full version bc I had some difficulty in finding the hog´s in the trial (that is 1 of my criteria to buy or not). Turned out the hog´s are not thát difficult (once you get the ´feel´ for the game), but the storyline and all the things you have to find out, the minigames made this game not regretting me buying the full version. Thinking about buying the 1st one as well know. I don´t know how long it took me to finish, bc I played it over a couple of days... Anyway long enough to still have a good feeling about buying it.

The Scruffs is a great game for kids. The animation type graphics are engaging and interestingly designed. The HO items are surprisingly difficult. The mini-games are short and simple enough to challenge a child without causing loss of interest because the tasks take too many steps to complete. I can see that the creators put much development into the game even though they chose rather simplistic graphics. I find the music a little bit annoying, but I imagine children will find it likable. It is nice that the hints, like the dog theme in this by the way, are generous. This is a nice game.

What a great game, well worth buying. I didn't hesitate buying this game, thoroughly enjoyed playing. It did require some thought sometimes and I got stuck once (thanks for the stratedgy guide). I really can't begin to tell you of the pleasure this game will bring. Suitable for young and old and the game has a real sense of humour to it. Enjoy

Good storyline, too good to skip for once! Very endearing and funny characters. The puzzles are original and a little challenging, with some surprises and twists that are entertaining. A nice change from all the creepy/scary HOGs. A really good game! I'll have to get the first one too.
