Crossworlds: The Flying City
Crossworlds: The Floating City
Professor Dumbdore (really?) and his daughter Monika have been working on a time travel device and it's finally complete, well almost. Monika warns her father not to use the transporter until they are able to fix the glitch with the cooling panel. Daddy doesn't listen and now he's in trouble so get ready for some time traveling. The biggest problem I have with this game is with the very basic graphics, I think I could have done a better job and I know nothing about programming. The hidden object scenes aren't easy because of the graphic quality, everything is blocky and hard to recognize because of bland colors. The hint button only works on HOS so you're on your own with the rest of the game. The first mini game I came across gave me vague instructions leaving me to guess at what actions to take in order to solve the game, and nothing reacted to my actions, no matter what I clicked on, giving me no choice but to wait for a skip icon to fill. It's a definite no go for me.

based on 30 min of demo (could not take it anymore)
no hint system except in the ho scenes
no real direction you have to hunt and search...
almost like a scavenger hunt
some items so small cannot see them
graphics old school and flat
phantasmagoria is still better than this game
for those who don't remember windows 95 and when 256 was high graphics
this game is not even that good
but that is just my opinion
no pros that i can think of...

frustrating NOT fun
muddled through but have to agree with another reviewer, it was confusing and while hidden objects are to be 'hidden' - I did not like how they were practically invisible blending into the background color not really 'hidden' more just plain not able to see. A lot of pointless clicking. Sorry Big Fish you won't get my $2.99 for this one.

Nope -- Not for Me!
Based on 15 minutes of the demo I was so frustrated I just couldn't go on. I guess I was actually a little angry at some of the senseless things I did.
One scene has a bookcase with lots of books. A little eye shows you need to look -- you look and the page is blank. I must have done this to a dozen books -- all blank. Finally the last book has something but you don't know what it is and there was no dialogue to tell you what should go there.
The next thing that really made me angry was in the same room in the HOS where there was a white candle on a white window sill -- you absolutely couldn't see it. The next that happened was, using the hint again to find a bug, I was pointed to a drawer that I had opened earlier and it was empty -- now it had a bug in it. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, fool me thrice and I won't buy your game!
Play the demo and read some reviews. For me it's a no buy and I certainly don't recommend it.
