The story was okay. I didn't like the fact that once you found an item, it did not disappear from the screen so you were left wondering which items you already found.

This is your average HO adventure. The graphics are decent and the puzzles not that difficult to solve (if you get stuck there is a Skip option). I rated this somewhat challenging because, whether by design or due to a glitch, the objects in the lists never disappear or get checked off after you've found them which cost this game a star. You either have to try and remember what you've found or make your own list. I was compelled to keep playing this one because of the story of the pharaoh's son and the slave girl. It's not a bad game so give it a whirl but make sure you make your own list of items to keep track of what you've found.
I like this game because you are able to move across the screen and get close some items.

I liked the game, though it was just OK. The story moved a little too slow. The graphics were good, however, the details including hidden objects were too small. Also it was hard to keep track of hidden objects found from the alpha list, since the words do not disappear when you find a hidden object.

Pretty standard HO game. Graphics are really nice. Objects are well hidden. The challenge was the object list. When you find an object, it doesn't disappear from the list or "grey out" so it's difficult to keep track of what you've found. You have to remember what you've found and what you're still looking for. That aggravated me so I deleted the game before I finished. If you don't mind that aspect, it's an okay game.
ok, so the graphics at 1st glance on this game were great. but, once i was trying to find items, they became less great-difficult to see, too small. the 3d element was cool, but not really helpful. the fact that the found items were not crossed off the list was just crazy. i found that the graphics, the items not being crossed off annoying enuf to take the fun out of this game...

This looks like it could have been an interesting game. Unfortunately, it is just frustrating. The list of items to be found appears, but none of the items are checked off or removed (except during silhouette searches) after locating the items. You have to keep at least a mental list yourself. There is a hint button, but all it does it tell you that you need to find items - it doesn't help you locate them. I quit after the third scene since I was having no fun at all!
This is a pretty standard HOG. The finds are fairly easy BUT I had a big problem with the fact the list of items remains unchanged as you find the object. It became frustrating unless you went in order of the list, which I HATE doing. I gave it 3 stars for content rather than play. I would not replay or recommend until the list problem gets fixed.

Very annoying when items didn't come off list when found, but I liked the game enough to buy it! Not the best game I've bought from Gamehouse, bu they can't all be 5 star!

I don't have much to add to the other reviews. The word list problem, the click-on-object problem. I thought the graphics were poor. Everything looked a little fuzzy. Also each scene was dimly lit. The silouette list had objects that did not quite match exactly. So many bad things, but still worthy of a 2 star rating.

Agree with the other reviewers that the lack of a method to track the objects found is frustrating. Its loses a star for such an oversight. Also had an issue with lack of alignment of a few objects with the designated click point. If you click directly on the object, nothing happens, click slightly away from it and it disappears. I did like the story line, it motivated me to continue with the game, but otherwise, its just an OK HO game. Its not hard to break away from.
This HOG has great features - HO, silhouettes, puzzles... The 3D graphics are cool and objects are sometimes hideen behind items and they move when you use your cursor to scroll. Recommend starting with relaxed mode; the tutorial is helpful. The storyline really kept me in the game.

This HOG has lots of great features - HOs, silhouettes, puzzles, lockboxes, etc. The only time the discovered objects are not erased from your list is during classic HO searches (clue: make your own checklist -duh!). The 3D graphics are cool and objects are sometimes hideen behind items (they move when you use your cursor to scroll L or R). Recommend starting with relaxed mode; the tutorial is helpful. Most of all, the storyline really kept me in the game - murder, arranged marriage, enchanting slave girl, all set in ancient Egypt!
The game has potential. But when you are solving a HO puzzle the items you find stay on the list so you will be unclear as to what you've already found and what needs finding! The story kept me yawning and I kept playing just to make it worth my time, but after a few hours of playing, I had to find anther more interesting game. Some may like this game but it wasn't for me.

The game was fun and interesting. Great story line.

There really isnt anything that makes this stand out from the rest of the hidden object games. My problem is that when you do have to find the items, you find one and it doesn't check it off. You have to make your own list or remember what you found and what you didnt find. Not very exciting to play.
