Loved this game! This game is really different than any I have played. I loved the concept. The puzzles were challenging and different than other games. The story was a great mystery. You didn't know if you were in a UFO story, spy story, or murder mystery! The only negatives were that I wish the game were a little longer, and for some reason I couldn't turn the alarm off half way through and had to turn the sound off the rest of the game because it got to be too annoying. If it weren't for those two things, I would have given it a 5 star. Whoever came up with this idea did a great job! Please make another game like this, only longer!

Looks like many players didn't like this game, possibly because it was an Adventure / Puzzle offering with cartoonish graphics. But I was taken with it once I got into the pace of the game. The story was intriguing, the puzzles were chalenging, the characters were curious, and there was a lot of game play for a standard edition game.

The plot starts out intriguingly; that's why I bought the game after the try-out had expired. Unfortunately, I then found out that arranging the letters in those formula bits wasn't really necessary for the game to continue and, really annoyingly, the promise that I could get back to them later, was broken when the credits suddenly came up. I played the game again (to make sure this wasn't a technical glitch), and the same happened. Never found out a final score nor, for that matter, what the effect was of skipping puzzles (which I did when I was playing for the second time). Did the developers run out of steam and forgot to provide a decent end, a final score, and maybe replay options for the puzzles?

I got this game on one hour trial and thought it was a good. It mainly consists of a series of puzzles to be solved to get you through to the next scene. I tend to play the more involved HOGs and this was similar but without HO bits. I bought it after the trial, played it for another hour and suddenly the credits came up. I had completed it without realising I was even near the end. A bit disappointing and no replay value.

Here we are again. Another game with promise that fell completely flat. It felt more like a HOG than an action game, as you were always having to find things, even if they weren't on a list. The help would point you in a direction, but if you missed something you needed to do first, it wouldn't tell you. There were many times when I had no idea what I was supposed to do. For instance, when making punch cards: did I have to make them all, or just a couple? When your avatar had weird visions, it didn't seem to matter whether you completed the puzzles or not. The story went on in either case. And the ending? What ending? It stopped in a most peculiar place. My assessment: don't waste your money on this one.

When I started to play I thought, "this is going to be different from anything else I have played", and I was right. The story line was okay and the search for different items was challenging because there is no list of what you need for a particular scenario. There is a lot of 'point and click' to pick up items. (The 'hint' button really got a workout at times when I couldn't figure out the diection of play.) The 'mini-puzzles' were very interesting and required a lot of thought to solve them. This is a classic example of "thinking outside the square". The end of the game left me wondering if I had missed something. It just didn't make any sense at all. I'd sugggest you try the free trial before you buy the full version.
