Pack your bags for the ultimate getaway in Vacation Quest - The Hawaiian Islands Deluxe, your passport to the most beautiful and stunning places in the world. Your first stop on a worldwide trip to the most amazing places on Earth awaits when you visit the Hawaiian Islands. Here, you'll spend the days relaxing under the sun, and the nights listening to calm ocean waves washing ashore.
take the ultimate vacation with this hidden object journey
explore beautiful Hawaiian locations to complete your vacation journal
locate 2300 perfectly hidden objects in 28 stunning locations
play 8 different mini-games including Match 3, Word Search, and Circle Rotation
More of the same from this publisher - nothing but finding hidden objects in the same rooms over and over again and playing a series of mini games in between each vacation day. There is no point to the game, no story to follow, no interaction with other characters because there are none. The graphics are good and I did find the facts about Hawaii interesting and educational. This one might be good for beginners because I was able to finish the game without using any hints. If you're up for a few hours of mindless hunting this one is probably for you.
Yep! As my title says... Second verse same as the first. If you have played any of the Mystery PI games well you've already played this game as it's the same exact thing. Go back and forth to the same locations, the same exact mini games as the Mystery PI games. The only thing I found different and interesting about this game was learning some interesting facts on Hawaii and the one and only reason I finished the game. There wasn't even a puzzle at the end that you have to try and solve like the Mystery PI games, usually you are given puzzle clues at the end of each level but this game here once you do the last hidden object scene that was it. Oh and in this game you have finding sea shells and if you find them all, unlocks a match 3 and more seek and find. You can also play this in timed or untimed mode. So if you've played the Mystery PI games and/or enjoy games where you are basically just finding stuff, going to the same locations over and over as there is no story, character interaction, well this is the game for you.
I really enjoyed playing this game. Graphics are very pretty and pleasant to view. Not one that normally buys games, I play the free hour version, but this one would highly consider purchasing.

Relaxing game to play, can be a little frustrating to find some very small objects that do not appear to resemble the description. Hope they develop more "Vacation" games, with possibly a more varied variety of screens/locations.

No real challenge. Graphics simplistic. Like too many other games out there. Definately game for pre-teens.

This is a straight forward HOG. It is not difficult and it is a nice change from all the really dark games that have come out and have you running back and forth, trying to figure out what you're supposed to do next. It is nice sometimes to have a game that is just relaxing and fun to play. It also gives some very interesting facts on the area. The graphics are clear so you won't need to break out the magnifying glass for this one. It's a refreshing new game.
I love Spintop games and I love the Mystery PI games, but I'm disappointed to hear that there is no grand finale puzzle, I always looked forward to those. Bummer.

Very easy to play, good replay too. Very much like Mystery PI and the DreamDay games(two of my faves). I haven't done the timed one yet, I like the relaxed mode best, but will try it next. All in all well worth the money

I have a few of the "Vacation Quest" games and I'm finding some of the objects are getting smaller. Some I can't see even with a "hint".

This was my second time playing the game and it was as much fun as the first time. Graphics were wonderful each location stunning and hidden objects well placed. Although each day's hunt is timed I felt no pressure. Although some time management is necessary to ensure you have adequate time to complete the puzzles. Puzzles are easy which makes them enjoyable. TIP: There is no reason to weird out regarding finding enough shells to extend your vacation and unlock the bonus matches. Music was relaxing as well. Enjoy I surely did.
I LOVE the HO games from Pop Cap, and this one is no different. I especially love the idea of adding days to your vacation and the wonderfully clear and interactive graphics. I can't wait for the next one!

This is a VERY basic HOG; simple theme song is too repitive, maeks for a boring search; all the screens are the same format; the puzzles are too few - and too easy. On the plus side, it would be good for searching with your keiki (child). Mahalo Gamehouse!

I love all the other hidden object games from pop cap and this one is on the the best next to the Lost in San Fransico. I loved the different graphics and the bright theme was great.

My grandson loved the Australian game so was glad to find this adventure. We have had lots of fun. He is learning to search and learning some words, too. I especially like the 'puns'.

This is just right for a snowy evening of relaxing. My eyesight is not real good so I appreciate the clarity of the pictures and games. The games are fairly easy and provide a nice variety along with the hidden objects.

It is different than other hidden games, instead of finding just the objects, sometimes they spell them out (like a sign or something). It makes you think and look differently at objects.

This game has a lot of repeat places, but not repeat items. The puzzles are not hard. If you are looking for a game to pass the time, this is it especially the nuggets of info about the islands themselves after the puzzles. This is a non-challenging game and fun for the entire family.

I'm now playing this game and enjoy the different scenes and the usual hidden object scenarios. The only thing I have run into so far is the repetition of the scenes. I've only gone through a few days of the quest, but have visited the same scenes several times. :( I like HOG games and this one as well but would prefer a larger variety of scenes and don't understand the reasoning behind not having more. Come on PopCap :D
