I have to give this one five stars because it kept me entertained the whole time. This is a series of thinking puzzles which require a brain. Collect the right pieces to activate the machines, figure out how to open doors, light the fire to activate the trap doors. Some of the steps were jigsaw puzzles and code puzzles to get to the next room. This will partly remind you of Crimson Room, but more fun and creative. I've never seen anything like it on GameHouse before. Please, can we have some more?

This was one of the best games I have played at GameHouse. It assumes that you are an intelligent person with an inquiring mind, hence the phrase "puzzle game." I felt challenged and I could figure out for myself how to go about solving each scenerio instead of being led to each answer. If it is too challenging you can all always find the walk-through to help you along. Well worth the price being asked and unbelivable that it is being offered for FREE in "Today's Free Game!" If you missed the free day, give it a chance on the FunPass or free trial, but I would recommend you buy this one. You won't be disappointed!

Please, Gamehouse, bring us more of these puzzle games. I'm tired of HOGs where you go from screen to screen searching for stuff over and over again. This one is perfect. There's lots of different types of puzzles to solve...not too hard but not so easy that it's boring. And not too many ads that it gets frustrating. Love it!

Good HOG game with nice puzzles. It's not very complicated, but still challenging.

Loved the game but I didn't like that you always needed to go to the walkthrough on the internet to figure out what to do next - there was no prompt on the actual game.

This game really makes you think. You get to a location without any hints. Now start clicking about until something glows or you pick it up. Than you need to figure out where you have to use those items in order to advance to the next area. Interesting how at one point of the game it tauts you with "It's amazing you got this far". The only disappointment was the ending.

I DECIDED NOT TO BUY THIS GAME BECAUSE IT TOOK WAY TOO MUCH THINKING EFFORT TO FIGURE OUT SOME OF THE CLUES. (I REALLY WANTED TO LIKE THIS GAME TOO) BUT IT'S JUST NOT WORTH THE EYE STRAIN TO FIND OUT THAT THE *SPARKLES* SOMETIMES DON'T MEAN A THING! SO I DELETED THE TRIAL VERSION AND MOVED ON.

I finished this game pretty quickly - it's somewhat challenging but nothing you won't be able to complete. I'd say it would even be a good game for older kids. The puzzles were simple which is good because there are no hints or skip options. The graphics were not that great but I think it's my computer. :) The story was kind of lame but I wasn't expecting much. I'm glad that I got this as the free game of the day and didn't pay for it! :)

I'm not going to sit here and pick it apart. It really was a great game overall

I love games like this! It was challenging but still easy enough for you not to be stuck for an age. Once you get into the mode of thought it's lots of fun, very enjoyable and addictive. But if you have other things to do there are obvious enough places that you can save the game and come back to it. Great.

For me it was challanging because I'm not one for these kind of puzzles but I thought the jigsaw puzzles were a waste of time-not every colorful, quite boring, just not fun. I liked the slider puzzles. I only did the hour demo so didn't get every far in the game.

I can't tell you the last time a game tested my brain power like this one did. It's taken me a month to get to where I am and I still have 2 levels to complete. This is puzzle gaming at its absolute best! There are NO HINTS. You must rely on your observation skills and logically think through what steps need to be taken to get through each level. Admittedly I did use a walkthrough on several occasions but I was still able to solve most of the puzzles through sheer determination and trial and error. I would say this is Kid Friendly but not for younger children. I believe this is a Good Value game and if you come back to it after not having played it for a while I believe it does have some Good Replay value. If you're not afraid to be challenged and have the wherewithal to stick with this one you will not be disappointed.

Was really fun, but one annoying thing was...things sparkly when you can use them however somethings sparkle for no reason. You click them and it just says something like "a tree" or "half buried rock" they are misleading and annoying, I can see its a tree lol. Other then that was fun, doesn't take long to complete either.

This is by far the most challenging game of this type I have completed to date. About half way through the game I had to download the strategy guide and even then I was occasionally lost. This is a good game for adults who want a challenge. Not for kids at all. Enjoyed all the mini games-puzzles, matching, slider blocks,etc...

I was doing okay until I got to the very first puzzle and no matter how I arranged it nothing would happen plus I didn't understand what was with the sparkles as I thought that was supposed to direct you to something after moving your mouse around and coming across the sparkles? Click on it for example and all it says is "that's just an old tree, rock, etc." So why sparkle? (Insert eye roll here.) LOL! I got bored with this REAL QUICK

I'm really glad that I downloaded this game. Haven't encountered any bugs yet or crashes like we sometimes find. It's involved and thinky, but after coming home from a busy days work; this game has a tendency to help wind down. I wouldn't call it addictive, but the calm pace is a big draw for me. I highly recommend downloading the game cheats, if you want to call them that. Unless your kids are a wiz, then they may be able to get through the directions. There are no hint buttons to click on in this game. Thus the game cheats.

This game was pretty good when you try the free trial but when further played it became pretty easy. The content was fun, but it was really short game i think they could have added alot more content for the price advertised. All i can say is have fun!!!

Probably one of the best games that I have ever played. It is a little too involved for children, but definitely entertaining and makes you think!

this was an enjoyable little brain teaser. on occasion i had to think for a minute or two before getting on the right track for a particular puzzle, but that's the point. it doesn't have much replay appeal as once you know how to defeat a puzzle why play again, yet i would recommend this to those who like a trickier game.
