Treasure Seekers: The Time Has Come
This was my first Treasure Seekers game and i enjoyed it. The story line is interesting, and the hero can bounce back and forth in time to solve problems in now or earlier. The graphics are good and the music is good. There are two levels of play. There are just about the right amount of HOS scenes and mini-HOS items. The items are well hidden but can be found. There were a few puzzles that were pretty easy.
You don't have a journal but you do have a "to do" list which helps direct your course of action.
I was a bit put off by the last area. It showed that the developers didn't do their research about Meso America. When a scene contains, Aztec, Olmec, Toltec, Haida, Tligit artifacts, as well as a chac mol from Tula and plummed serpents from Teotihuacan at the same Mayan site - you know something is shoddy.

good game to play
Pretty good HO game. Graphics are good. Not all that hard but is a short game. This is better for 1/2 price.
They are all about the same in game play so nothing new in this one.
Hint button is good

Another good Treasure Seekers game!
This game is part of the Treasure Seekers series, and is one of the better games. Tom is looking for his sister Nelly. She is trying to help keep a world catastrophe from happening. Tom follows clues in various locations in order to find his sister. When playing this game you can choose the level of difficulty. Even with the easiest level it's still challenging. But at this level you have hints about where to locate objects that you need. This is similar to the other games in the series in that when you find an object, rings pop up most of the time and you must find other objects that relate to that one. When you find them all then you get something that you need to continue the game. Sparkles indicate hidden object areas. The list of hidden objects at times has blue letters, which means that you have to do more than one step in order to find it. There is a list of tasks you need to accomplish, with various locations to search in order to accomplish those tasks. There is a good system for hints if you can't decide what to do next. I was impressed with this game and enjoyed playing it very much. The reason I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that if you play the game at the harder levels, many of the objects are impossible to find and you just need to click until you find something. So I played at the easiest level and enjoyed it more.

The game was OK
I play quite a few different HO games, but this one was the only one that I am writing a review in which it wasn't four stars. I found the story to continually get in the way and that there were a lot of going back and forth moments. I can't completely explain what I didn't like about this game, but it seemed to move very slowly and at times I found myself frustrated with the game due to ease of play. I found it very easy and I would not recommend this to anyone who is looking for a smooth playing game.
