Waiting for another Hodgepodge Adventure!
Wonderful game for adults and kids alike but my grandkids love this game and can play it by themselves now that they can read. They've played it so many times I would GLADLY purchase another or a game like this one to give us something new to keep them interested in hidden obj./adventure games. they especially love making the potions and can now read a recipe. C'mon... we need a sequel !!

A delightful game for everyone, including grown-up kids like me. While the more lush, more elaborate, complicated HOPAGs are more my style, I enjoy a fun, pretty, whimsical game like Hodgepodge Hollow once in a while to break up the trip a little. I played this sometime ago on another site. I said to myself, self...one day you'll get this one. I purchased it this morning and have already finished it. The setting is right up my alley. No mouse lag. Seamless play. And the music is perfect. Only had to use a hint in a couple of places, but my eyes are a little older...and that's what the hint button is for! I recommend this game highly. The only thing I find disappointing about Hodgepodge Hollow is that there isn't a sequel yet! I'll wait a week or so, then play it again. Hope everyone enjoys this. It's not a big game, but quite enjoyable!

Absolutely Love This Game!
So much fun! It's almost too cute and may fool you into thinking it's just for children, but not so. The music reminds me of "Charm Tale" and is very pleasant. The gnomes are so darned indefatigable, you really want to help them. It's fun making the potions and then using them throughout the game.

Relaxing enjoyable fun HO game.
I loved it I bought it, and I'm keep on playing it. Graphics are great, different than your usual HO games graphics yet refreshing in concept. The music almost put me to sleep, so relaxing, just like the rhythm of the game, no time pressure, play in your own pace. Very enjoyable game, I liked the potions creating scenes, something else to do beside looking for objects.
The level of the game is suitable for all, kids and adults.
Try it buy it you will be happy you did.

This game is a little bit of everything with a lot of light-heartedness and an overall calming feel. Everything is pretty straight forward, but not to much that you don't need to use your noodle.

Lots of fun
have been sat with my 5 yr old granddaughter and had loads of fun in making the potions. We had to make potions, find bug and the like totally brilliant and great for the family. Younger children will need help with the instructions but this is what made it one for sharing.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous
I have never seen such art in a PC game before, and it completely blew my mind. The hidden-object play is OK - the potion making is very fun, and the logic puzzles make sense (which is more than you can say of many games). I wish I could find the game credits so I could see more of this artist, they are uniquely talented.

Loved it, loved it, loved it. Such good hobbity drawings and lots of fun making the potions. A bit challenging to the memory but that's what makes it good.

Cute game for a little break
It's really a cute game. You have to help gnomes and make 14 potions. You have to look for ingredients in various locations and then make the potion in the right order. It's a relaxing game, not very long. It took me 2 hours at a slow pace. I recommend this game for kids, beginners and for those who need a break from more stressful games.

Different and light fun
A different type of game and a bit of light hearted entertainment. At time the game was clunky when instructions were inadequate. I?ll deduct a point here for being clunky and failing to explain what is desired. The overall game was not dark or mysterious but rather different in a very refreshing way.
