It was a good balance of making you think and just knowing what's next.

I really enjoyed this game. The graphics were great and the game held your interest - I wish it could have lasted longer! But, I am replaying it again! Hope we will have more like it!

Instantly I was drawn into this game by its attractive scenery. There are short movie sequences that provide information and can be accessed at any time.The voice-overs leave much to be desired (especially Monica Dipp our heroine). Sounds and music are subtle not annoying. The HOS are bold and clear yet objects are not obvious. They also contain a little extra. Mini-games are fun,original and rather easy. Although there is a map, it does not allow travel. It shows active areas. There does seem to be a lot of travelling for sometimes little pay-off. And it is a little short. Regardless, I thoroughly enjoyed this game.

This is a good game, with an interesting storyline. It is not terribly difficult, and the hint system is very useful if you do get stuck. There is also a good strategy guide available. The reason I only gave it 3 stars is that it is very short, and the ending is VERY unsatisfying and abrupt. I assume a sequel is planned, but the ending is so abrupt that I really thought something had gone wrong with the game when it ended. Took me a minute to realize I had finished it.

I agree with other reviewers that this game didn't end, it Stopped. After all the traversing around, it was a very disappointing finale. Otherwise, it was beautifully made, and the HOGs were good, a little more interesting with the addition of built-in extra puzzles in the time function. The puzzles themselves were a little funky,but at least they tried something different. The characters didn't make much sense, although I thought the Keeper and the father looked like the same person, only one was ravaged. Never figured out about the mother so maybe they are planning a sequel.

Just finished playing the game and loved it! Although the ending was abrupt, the developers left it open for sequels. Loved the mini games within the mini games. I want more games like this!!!

some different approaches to hidden object games and mini games. Really enjoyed this one.

I enjoyed playing 'City of Cyan' and look forward to more from the same maker :)

This game is a very nice game graphics wise. The scenes are gorgeous and colorful and a delight to wander around in for that reason. Otherwise the game leaves much to be desired. The story line is there and it's interesting enough but the characters are annoying and unlikeable. The tasks are easy enough but they don't really make a lot of sense. The HO scenes are good, not too hard, not too easy, and they each have a HO game within the scene which is different and fun. The problem is that as you go through the story the other tasks you have to complete don't really fit in. It's hard to explain but the game misses the mark in so many ways. I kept having to refer to hints to figure out what to do next because the forward moves just weren't very logical.

love the graphics in this game. the beating heart as the play button was gr8. there is a lot of dialogue and reading in this game, but the story is interesting. i have to admit at time the heroine could have been better acted. i played the casual version of this game, and it was challenging. the minigames were easy, but fun. i actually enjoyed the games where u had to follow specific instructions like flip the red switch/turn the rectangle gage to 300. i thot they'd be silly, but i found them enjoyable. there were not a lot of actual HO scenes in this game. u did have to take items found in one place and use them in another to advance in the game. i do have to say the ending was disappointing.

Unfortunately this game was quite short and the storyline was difficult to follow. HOWEVER, the graphics were the best I've ever seen on a game, and the mini games were original and innovative. I couldn't wait to get back to my pc and continue playing. I enjoyed it so much I may just play it again for the sheer beauty of it.

Finally, a new HO game that did not suck. It had good graphics, okay storyline and nice HO scenes. Not too hard and not too easy. Hope this continues and that the premium games are not the trend.

I did like the game, but there was more of a mystery feel to it than a hidden object game. The few HOG scenes were more interactive with a hidden scene within the scene. I didn't get why all the statues had pointed ears and wings... never saw how that fit into the games as the story is about human people. In fact the people looked right off the streets, not from this City of Cyan. The map was very helpful, the scenes were colorful, and music/background noises were not at all intrusive. The story line is ok, LOTSSS of dialogue, and it does tie the story together. Sadly, the game ended like dropping off a cliff. If there is a sequel, bet it will be platnium and costly! This is once only play for me.

I have purchased many games now. I think I'm not a game addict but this game has captured my interest. This is the first game since Enlightenus that interested me enough to read all the sequences, read all the journal entries and really study the whole game. The graphics are top rate. The game is well written with no glitches. The scenes are rich with detail. Even the music and sound, which I generally turn off immediately, are enjoyable. I'm about 2/3 through the game the first time and I actually want to go slowly to enjoy all the scenes. If you are a hidden object fanatic, you will be disappointed, as the HOS are infrequent. But, when you enter a HOS or any mini-game, the structure is straightforward and it is easy to figure out what the object is. This is a top game in my estimation. Good work, developers. Bring on more.

Very original and unique. I LOVED it. We need more like it. I liked the story, too. I just wish when you replay it would jumble up the mini games or change in someway.

Very enjoyable game. A mixture of HO and puzzles, very much my thing. There was quite a bit of going back and forth but the game map was exceptionally helpful with this. If I have one criticism it is that the ending is a bit unsatisfying even if it is meant to be a teaser for a sequel. Excellent game.

This had a unique story and it was very involved. The hints are very good and the HO were fun to find. This has many places to check out in the game. This has amazing grahics. It was a fun afternoon playing this game.

The game is easy to follow and no help needed with finding things or where to go. I have played lots of games but, can say this is the first one ever, hints were not needed at all. The game play was great. Wish more like this out there like this one.

I play on expert and found this game just challenging enough. Even better, the map told you where to go when you needed some help. The hint gave good hints. the games were different enough to be fun. I recommend it highly. The only little problem was the end. I had to watch it again before I realized they weren't going to tell you more. I needed more!!

Beautiful graphics. Unique games. Interesting story made you wonder who was really trustable. But...I hate "to be continued games". I'd definitely tell others to play!
