Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde: The Strange Case
Hmm -- Tried It, BOUGHT IT
I like trying games with bad reviews because they usually end up to be not that bad.
The graphics are not grainy as one reviewer stated. Scenes may be a little dark, but the objects are distinguishable.
You start with 3 hints and collect more by clicking on the gold star in each scene (the stars are out in the open, tough to miss). If you use a hint in a scene, you will have another gold star to click on. Also, for completing mini games, you are awarded 2 hints, but the maximum hints you can have is 6.
The mini games can be challenging, but if you need help, you can click on a puzzle piece that shows you what the end result should look like.
When you need to go back to another scene, there is an arrow to direct you where to go.
The story like is OK, nothing earthshaking.
If you are looking for a challenge, look elsewhere. But if you just want a hidden object game to relax with, give this one a try.

It's a strang case, ocay game, but not very interesting.

Simple but good visuals.
Not bad, but not the greatest. I was able to nearly finish the game in the free trial one hour. I recommend to beginners or for some "light" fun. "light" because as we know the story Dr J and Mr H is nothing but light and fluff. No gore or other things but it does let you use your imaginations. Not recommending to younger audience due to the heavy drug content. Other than that not much of a challenge.
Hint star pops up as you used one hint
Time period items (big plus)
Well balanced HOS (silhouettes and clues) with mini puzzles
Not many going back and forth to the same area (average 2 x as much as I can tell from the free trial)
Not much challenge
Item clues pop up as you go (great minus)
Slow hint recharge
Some items too dark or hidden to find.
Beginners level challenge
Story line text can be only continued by the right lower arrow (instead of click anywhere, big minus)
Over all easy light game.

Not Quite Cutting Edge
The game looked really interesting so I went ahead and purchased it. What a regret!
Graphics were realy grainy
Storyline just didn't make any sense, disjointed
Sorry, none that I could see.

The graphics are terrible. Boring. All the dialog gets really old really fast.
