Awakening: Moonfell Wood
I don't usually bother with fairy based games, but i gave this one a go,wish i hadn't, the graphics are very nice, don't know about the sound i didn't have it on. The puzzles are very very easy so no challenge there,tried the demo, couldn't finish it, became really bored.If you like the genre you will love Moonfell Wood,

Good Idea, But here's a suggestion:
This game is a nice game. The graphics are actually lovely and the basic idea of the game is good. But I felt like it could have been a lot better!
I think that there are lots of good games within this site and I don't pretend to have looked at them all - however, the adventure games need some work. You should make a customizable avatar for most games (that's basic knowledge). I believe the adventure games would be much better if you included more adventure :) for example, take a que from the earlier games like Kings Quest, Kyrandia, etc. Those games are magical and take you away from real life for days, even weeks. Or even some of the games on facebook are very good. The hidden object thing has done it's time and now it's time for something new?? Please

Just too much adventure for me! lol

The game is so pretty and the positive reviews are so encouraging. And at the time I wanted to try something different because so many of these games are dark and dealing with death and hauntings and maniacs, etc. It was starting to skew my world view. So I purchased this game and appreciated how bright and pretty it was...and that was about it. It didn't really engage me, I didn't really care much about what I was doing, and I finished it because I didn't want to leave it unfinished, not because I enjoyed playing it. So I didn't personally find much payoff in playing it, but if you can, then good for you! My recommendation is to demo this before purchase (not a bad practice for all games if you have the time).

Sequel to the Awakening
Princess Sophia is now looking for her human people in this sequel to the Dreamless Castle. It is much improved over the last one as we now get grabby hands to pick things up. Still, I had to deduct a star from a four star game because it leaves us hanging for the sequel.
The visuals are a little bit better but not much and the characters still don't speak in this one. Again, recommended as a freebie.

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.
