Amanda Rose: The Game of Time
DIFFERENT FROM THE REST
I really enjoyed this game. It was totally different. The graphics were superb. It seems that everyone wants the easy way out in games these days, this one reminded me of gameplay 10 years ago, where you had to think a little bit. I loved finding the bits and pieces and then working out how to incorporate them into the scene. The story was just OK - Amanda has to find out where her father and Doc have gone, in time. LOVED the puzzles. Well done.

Amanda Rose To The Rescue
Amanda's father left the house in a hurry explaining that he was traveling to Arizona to help a friend. A few days later Amanda receives a package and a letter from her father explaining that she is going to get a call telling her that her fathers plane has crashed and her father hasn't yet been found. All kinds of mystery surrounds this story but she flies to Arizona to follow her dad's requests. This is a really unique kind of game, you find items in each scene, some inventory items need further action such as putting two items together to complete. You will need to toggle between the hidden object list and your inventory list as well. You search each scene for available tasks such as a suitcase that requires a code to open. In order to find the code you may need to find a key, open up a dresser drawer, to find a blank piece of paper. After you find all the pieces to an oil lamp, you assemble the lamp, find the matches and light the lamp. Once the lamp is lit, you take the blank paper, hold it to the light in order to make the code for the suitcase show up. Very time consuming but very interactive and fun, enjoy!

not so hot
seemed disjointed, a lot of slow back and forth. A lot of repetition, and difficult story line...often lacking direction

Gameplay was clunky, but the graphics were nice.

The plot seems interesting; the random comic panels are visually pleasing and I'd love to see what happens to Amanda. Unfortunately, the actual gameplay is pretty awful. The difficult HOG scenes are confusingly intermixed with badly-defined puzzles -- maybe you're supposed to find *different* objects, and then get back to finding hidden objects? Or... something?
The hint system makes it possible to get through the puzzle/glitch/object space, so you can keep playing indefinitely. For me, that meant "through the demo", after which I didn't pay for the full game -- and I still have no idea what's going on.

Not my cup of tea
The storyline makes sense. Mystery surrounding finding her father with a mystical something or other. But that's when it ends. There's a portal at the beginning after you have to find not only HOs but locked items. You're transported to some western town (?) and still HOs and locked items one after the other after the other. After an hour of free trial you have no clue what the game is about and nothing makes sense. Sorry, Glam-ma says no to this one.

too slow paced
Like others have said, this is just a slow paced game.
The challenge is trying to find all the hidden objects, some of which are hard to find.
Plot was unclear.
This is not as well developed as other developers' games.

Dumb, Dumb, Dumb
Graphics and gameplay are equivalent to games that were developed three or four years ago. Played the free trial. Totally disgusted. Would never go further.
