This game is all over the map. I completely agree with another reviewer who said there is no flow or logic to this game. If it hadn't been for the hint button, I would not have had the first idea of where to go next. The story line is not too bad--you have an accident, and when you wake up your daughter is gone, and you must find her. You wander to this abandoned house and piece together a tragedy that directs you toward secret military experiments. The provided map is pretty worthless. It does tell you where there are tasks left to be completed, but you can't go to a scene by clicking on the map, so there is quite a bit of back and forth. Additionally, most of the scenes were in sepia tones; rather dull. I guess because the house and everything else was a wreck the developers decided there shouldn't be any color. I thought the lack of color took away from the game somewhat. Your journal does provide some hints, but not many. The mini games did not have a lot of instruction, but for the most part were not difficult. When you finally slog your way to the end, you're pretty much left unsatisfied by the abrupt ending. This game had a lot of potential that in my opinion was not fulfilled. Certainly not what I've come to expect from Alawar. Very disappointing. And definitely not for younger children.
