Once Upon a Farm
Quite a quirky quest
This game was quite a challenge, no hints or help, other than during hidden objects and no walk through blog - your'e on your own. To start off with every thing just seems to fit into place but as the game progresses the old grey cells are really tested. A young investigator had ruffled some big-wigs feathers and the mayor was after his blood until his boss sent him way out west to solve a grain stealing case. The dialogue was not overbearing but just enough to let you know what is happening. The music is quite pleasant and the background sounds like the buzzing of flies in the toilet, crows in the fields and squeeking doors all added to the reality. The graphics were precise, clear, clean and colourful which made the hidden objects reasonably easy to locate, only a few needed a hint, and the puzzles were pretty good. With no guide, help or walk through blog the moving to different locations was not so much as a problem as was what to do when you got there. For example a big bull was blocking the path and all you had in the inventory was a bottle of gin so the bull was given the gin, was quite happy, cleared the path and fell asleep. Way to go. I really enjoyed this game as it gave me a bit to think about and things were not as they seemed as one needs to think outside the square. If you like a challenge with not much help, get this game, I did.

What an awful game....
Very easy to play, no challenge.The graphics are good and clear and the music is decent...but the derogatory way the designers portray people who work on farms was too much for me. I was taken back a bit.

I should have read the forum before buying
I never would have bought a racist game but I don't read the forums until I get in trouble. There is no hint or help except during the hidden object parts so I had to go back and forth to a walkthrough from youtube. I bought the game for the fantastic location--a cross between Central or South America, the midwest US, Europe and Arizona. But I wish I hadn't bought it and didn't finish the game.
