This was a great HO game! The story, the puzzles and the scenery. I wished it had been a little longer because I really enjoyed it. Thanks!!

I found this game engaging. The HO scenes were very easy, but I really had to THINK about what to do next and how to use objects to move ahead. It was great fun; a nice change from the mindless HOGs. It was shorter than I expected, but the story line was fairly complete. Perhaps a sequel?

I thought all together it wasn't that bad of a game. The story was what pulled my attention the most. I kept on playing cause i wanted to know what was going to come out of the story. If i have any complaints i felt that the game was kind short, i felt that i ripped right through it. I did how ever play the highest mode with no hints or cheats, and it made it bit more exciting for me cause i had to really do the games and think lol. Over all i think it was worth the fun ticket i used on it:)
I played the insomniac mode - no help at all and you cannot change that mode once you pick it. i really had to think about how i used the objects to move on wit the game - oh, not that many hidden objects scenes, but the fun really came with figuring out the next move and how to use the objects. be sure to be specific about where you click, that makes a difference... it was really a short play and what I thought was an abrupt ending. guess there could be a sequel?? it was more addictive than most games cause you had to solve everything (pretty eash puzzles though) before you could move on. fun game
I enjoy this type of interactive game but unfortunately it just wasn't long enough. I finished this in well under a day and other similar games have taken me days to finish. The puzzles were challenging, the HOD scenes were quite easy but the story line was a bit all over the place. I enjoyed it - just wasn't long enough.

I found this game pretty easy, and way too short. The story was a bit different from the usual, though. OK game to pass a couple of relaxing hours, but not going to stretch you.

I squealed in frustration as the trial ended! The one hour trial seemed to fly by! It took two sessions to get to the trial end and I didn't want to quit. I had just rescued the young child, and had the magic elixir, when this evil dude gets me and the girl. Bummer! He leaves me in the dungeons - in a dark, dank cell and takes the girl for his evil purposes. That's where it ended, of course. Now the game goes into my cart and I pay the piper. It's worth the pitance that GH asks for a HOG that was very enjoyable. Unless, of course, you dislike good graphics, storyline and adventure. There are two level choices and the skip option for the puzzles. Enjoy!
A good, fun game with lots of everything good. I was surprised to find I had reached the end after only about 3 hours. It definitely left me wanting more. Bring on the sequel.

This game has made it to my top ten! It was fun, colorful, and not too hard. My kids loved joining in on the HO parts, and helping me figure out the puzzles. Of course I have only played on "sleepy head" (easy) so far. But, I defenitely recommend this game.

I can't believe I actually paid for this game. Teach me to buy one before anyone reviews it. It was over quick and I was left wanting more. More game, more challenge, more of everything.

Usually I don't leave reviews but I was very unhappy with this game. I have played a lot of hidden object games from gamehouse and I have never had this much trouble with the overall game load of a game. I was playing the game just fine and actually really enjoying the game when all of a sudden it kicked me off the game. When I went to continue playing, it didn't load where it was supposed to and so I was then stuck playing the game any further. I am very disappointed with this game :(
I really enjoy these types of HO games. Very few HO but plenty of back and forth through scenes. I would've liked a map (which there is none) instead of going back and forth scene by scene. However, there is a good amount of thinking and searching for items. Very little storyline which I liked. Biggest complaint is that it is very short. I wouldn't buy this game. It took me about 3 hours to finish it. If it had been longer, it would be worth the price. The hint button recharges almost immediately but there are no hints in the journal and sometimes you don't know what to do for a certain puzzle unless you hit the hint button.
Once tech support got the game up and running for me, I had a blast. Lots of things to do in this game and loads of stuff to find so that you can move on. Take your time playing this game. The only complaint I have is that it isn't long enough. Now I have to wait for the sequel. BUMMER! Hope Intenium is working on the sequel.

Great game. Enjoyed the graphics. Not too many portals. Somewhat short. A definite reco.

This game dragged along a story of a mean man. Think of Pinocchio. Similar theme. The guys that take the carriage of boys on the boat. Then turn them to slaves. Only this man steals their soul.

Although I'm a fan of HOG, I prefer games like this, which requires some thought and contain interactive scenes; not big on strictly HO. HINT button recharges quickly, scenes are bright with clearly depicted objects to locate, mini-games (SKIP available) are fairly typical, a bit challenging, but not frustratingly impossible. Initially, I had to rely on HINT button to direct me to next location; became easier once the story evolved. The story line held my interest, not lots of dialogue through which to scroll, I play with sound muted. My only complaint was the length--too short, completed game in under 3 hours. Looking forward to a sequel!
