Awakening: Moonfell Wood
For the fairies and flowers set
If you're looking for a mildly challenging game with fairies, flower, princesses, and non-threatening goblins, this is the one. I got it as a discount add-on to another game; it's not one I would have chosen on my own. The puzzles are repetitive and fairly simple -- lots of drag-and-drop jigsaw puzzles and scrambled tiles, with a few other simple logic puzzles mixed in. And, of course, you can always skip the puzzles. Relatively few hidden object puzzles.

Good for Children and Novices
This is a great game for young children and players new to the HOG genre. The graphics are pretty, the story is pleasent and engaging, and the storybook quality of the game is pretty and nostalgic.
However, this is not a game for skilled HOG gamers. The puzzles are painfully easy, and there's little to no challenge at all for an experienced player. The music can be a tad repatative, especially when you try to play the game in one setting. There were times where it began to wear on my nerves so much that I had to mute the sound. I got this game as a Catch of the Day, and I'm glad I did. It isn't something I would pay full price for personally, though the story and art are charming.
If you're new to this genre or you have small children and you're looking for a family friendly game, this is a great title to keep in mind. If you like a challenge, look elsewhere.

Wore out its welcome
I have to admit I liked this game when it first came out. It was pretty, and it didn't have a lot of HO scenes, which I dislike. And the graphics were a bit different from the darker games.
Well, I tried playing it a second time, this time on my PC rather than the iPhone, and I have to say I'm not sure why I liked it the first time. It now fades into the multitudes of cutsie offerings out there, along with evil witches and magic spells. If you're not as worn out by these as I am, you will find it a perfectly adequate, smooth-running game, without the glitchiness of the iPhone version. But I've had enough of fairies and goblins. Give me real people in the real world for a change. Historical or pre-historical preferred. But real, and definitely not cute.

Storyline, graphics, and sound are all impeccable. The length of game is a around 6-7 hours. Visually, it is much better than the Dreamless Castle and the level of challenge is taken up a notch. I love the whole premise of this series and the fantasy world built around it. That's why I was So Disappointed that such a beautiful game was ruined with repetition of the same puzzles and mini-games Over and Over again. (arranging picture pieces or object pieces or matching pairs) Its DRAINS the joy out of the game. What hidden objects there were, was mostly Fragmented with a handful of regular H.O Scenes. 1/2 way into the game I got so bored with puzzles, that the game just stopped being fun and it became more about just finishing it, to see the ending.

In one word: Redundant
The graphics are pretty and the story is there but as a whole I became bored with the same old puzzle time after time after time. Always the same things. It got to the point where I would just skip them so I could get on to the next place and hopefully find something new or interesting.
If you don't mind gobs of puzzles that are color matching, item matching, reassembling then you will likely enjoy this game. If you're like me and like different challenges then this one is likely to bore you to death.

Became very repetitive
This game was charming for the first hour. It has lovely graphics and a storybook feel that I enjoyed.
Unfortunately the minigames become very simple and very repetitive. I don't play casual games for grueling intellectual challenge, but I'm a little insulted by constant minigames asking me to find the two berries that look alike, the two glyphs that look alike, the two moths that look alike, and so on.
The plot also fades into the background as the game progresses, and between that and the repetitive, simple tasks, I lost any urgency to keep going. I bought the game and played through about half of it, but I probably won't finish it.

Way too difficult to find hidden objects, had to transfer up and down back and forth to find hidden objects , never had very many objects found in an hour , I guess I just don't have enough college to do this.

This game was just so-so. I did not find it that fun. 2 stars

too childish for me
I'm always looking for an escape from the usual horror story games but this one was just too childish. Everything appeared to be straight out of a children's book, even the graphics.

Nothing works. Pick things up and can't use them. Nothing turns or fits even when I follow directions. Cute, but useless fairy.
