Blood and Ruby
Vampires + HO Game = Fun
I very much enjoyed this game. It had a nice little story, very colorful and cartoon-ish style graphics, and great music. This was also a nice break from the usual HO games that revolve around such dark and gloomy things. I didn't find it very challenging and I wish it had been longer but, it was still fun to play. I look forward to finding more games similar to this one.

SKIPPABLE but WOULD NOT SUGGEST DOING SO
The dialogue and cut scenes are skippable but I wouldn't suggest doing so due to the fact that oftimes it provided me with the knowledge of where to go and as to what to do next.
This is my kind of game as I spent a very relaxing afternoon/early evening time playing without once becoming frustrated.
I did not have to look at the walkthrough due to the hint button letting me know (when needed) what I needed to do/go next, I didn't spend alot of time needlessly walking around trying to ascertain what to do/where to go next, was able to figure out the mini-games and not skip any. and the inventory items made sense as to their usage.

short, simple but sweet
This is what I call a filler game. A easy, lighthearted game that you play between large file games, or dark IHOGS when you just want something quick, very easy, light and fun.
Even though this is a fairly recent game, don't expect a modern HOPA it's not or you will be greatly disappointed. It plays and feels like the old type hidden object games, which mostly didn't have junk pile scenes but more cluttered scenes. Although the graphics are nice.
There is an interactive/transporter map although there aren't that many places to visit.
plot was simple but I really enjoyed it.
I love those type of graphics (not the cut scenes) it's just adds to the feeling of lightheartenedness and fun.
Although I don't know if I would recommend it for young chidren even though it is easy, as someone had been murdered (but you don't see anything) and I know some people don't like anything re occult, this does have a few references sprinkled about.
Although saying all that I would put it in the cheery category, it just is.
The hint button replenshies quickly, the sparkles are faint. There is no choice of settings of hardness.
The puzzles are very easy, and you do have to repeat hidden object scenes. But maybe it was the graphics of some of the scenes as although I usually don't like straight hidden object scenes, because they weren't really junk pile and had clear graphics - I enjoyed them.
It is super short - I would say a 2-3hr game. 2hrs or maybe less if you are a really quick gamer (I'm not)
My personal opinion is don't buy this at full price. But if it comes up as a DD and knowing all this information, then it's worth a look or If you have loads of punchcard credits needing to be used up.
Maybe when I played it was the right time, between harder large file games and I wanted a quick brain relaxer, it made me enjoy it. Certainly not a very good game but I did find it enjoyable. (I gave it 4 stars as the 4 stars said 'liked it')
other easy filler games I recommend (more so than this) is 1 penguin 100 cases, and avenue flo adventure games (not the TM)

Big Sis needs to save Little Bro
Vampire stories are not my favorite, however, this game didn't show any blood except on some papers so I could deal with that. I purchased at a sale price and that effects my review...in other words, this was a good value for $2.99 as are many of the older games on BFG (they run fantastic sales btw).
This story was interesting to the point it had me trying to hurry a couple of times to get something done to save a situation from disaster. When a game can draw you in like that....it is doing something right! It also included a map that you could jump from scene to scene instead of backtracking and for an older game this was awesome....some of the newer games need to do the same. I really liked the characters in this story and how well they interacted.
Enjoyable game, especially at a discount price so give it a try!

Fun vampire hidden object adventure game!
This was a fun game! Not sleek or super graphics like other similar games, but no less enjoyable. Sound effects and music good. The puzzles and hidden objects are challenging, storyline lightly scary, engaging.

A Nice Enjoyable Game ...
Average To Good Graphics & Sounds ...
I Went Looking Through The Older Games To Find Something To Play, And Perhaps Use Up Some Of My Free Game Vouchers ... And This Was A Nice Little Find ...
Not A Big Game, With A Very Limited Area Of Play ...
Good For 2 To 3 Hours Of Easy Going Entertainment ...
