Mysteries of Magic Island
Mysteries of magic Island hidden object game
When I first started this game, I thought that it was a bit childish, but-- as I continued I got drawn into it, and could not leave this game alone!! many puzzles, & clever twists & turns, use your map to help where to go next, plenty of interaction, very well put together, I fully recommend this game, full of entertainment.

I love this one! Fun game - great graphics, medium difficulty HOG
I'm really having fun with this game! I'm a beginner with hidden-object games, but I think I can reasonably say this is of medium difficulty as far as HOGs go. It's not too difficult, but not too easy either. Some of the objects are more difficult than others to find (you can always use a "hint" and it recharges), so there is definitely a level of challenge. However, perhaps not challenging enough for expert HOGgers. I can't really say anything about the length of the game, because I'm not finished yet.
The story line is simple, but fun. You have to leave Magic Island and make it back to the school in order to become a wizard! I really enjoy games with a medieval or magical theme and this has both. I like that you can actually move some of the hidden objects around to find others - that's the first time I've seen that.
Lots of moving back and forth between scenes and the puzzles are fun, not so difficult that you can't solve in a reasonable amount of time to keep game moving ahead at a decent pace. The music and sounds are pleasant, not intrusive and the graphics are very good to excellent IMO.
I tried this game as a daily deal through the game club after reading reviews of it in the forum, but it would have been a definite buy for me even at full price.

Colorful and inviting HOG
Finally a HOG when a car is not crashing in the dark. The graphics were colorful and very pretty. I liked the map to help me find my way when I needed to use it. I really enjoyed the time I spent playing this game!

Awesome graphics & sound, & fabulous game play with clear, untimed hidden object scenes. . . ! A nice hint system charges quickly, & the puzzles are cool, & definitely do-able . . .
The lightning effect rocks . . . !

What an Enjoyable Game
This is a wonderful easy going game with just enough challenges to keep your interest there. The graphics, story and music were very good. I enjoyed this game so much that I bought it after the trial. I was so into it that I stayed up all night playing it.
The walkthrough was useful on several occasions.

Fun Magic Game With A Twist
Not my usual type of game but thoroughly enjoyed this one.
Good graphics and the background music is nicely understated.
HOS items can be a bit small to find but unlimited hints helped (filled reasonably quickly as well).
The puzzles get harder towards the end and some don't have instructions (not a problem for experienced gamers as they are mostly intuitive - journal gives some guidance too).
Tips: keep referring to your map and journal - very helpful.
Don't forget you have spells and potions to use also.

Good Variety of HOGs & Puzzles
I loved the demo so much that I just bought the game. I love the variety of HOGs and puzzles. The hints seem to be plentiful. Even though some items are a little difficult to find, you can take your time without the game trying to force the answer on you. There's a journal to tell you your tasks and a map to show you the layout.
I will warn you that if it is the storyline that you're interested in then my review won't help you. I'm basically into Hogs and puzzles. I mute the sound before I even start the game and I hit skip as soon as it appears during conversations.
