Snark Busters: All Revved up
Good, Clean Fun :)
I really enjoyed this game. :)
It's all good, clean fun, nothing dark or grim. The setting is whimsical, and the music fits it nicely. Actually, I love the music in its own right! :D
I got stuck once, and had to go to the walk-through, but generally speaking, the puzzles aren't too hard. Not too easy, either! You get the fun and satisfaction of working things out, but don't end up tearing your hair out! :D
I was surprised that they didn't continue the story of the character from the first game, but I like this character, too. He's a bit full of himself, but amusing with it. :D I have a few mates like him... :D
My only real niggle is that it didn't feel quite as "Steampunk-y" as the first game. But that's a minor point, and probably a matter of personal taste. :)
All in all - well done, guys! More of this, please! :)

LOT OF FUN,GREAT GAME, JUMPED RIGHT INTO THE PURCHASE , hoping continued episode...yeah!!!
I was in a great creative comfort zone with all aspects of the game. Everything is right before your eyes, hints are fast and accurate, and actually tell you what you need to know but does not give away to much and spoil the seek and find fun. Hidden pieces promote seeking abilities to be used, and you do find the pieces without that feeling of crazy frustration, colors are accurate and pretty, story line is there and good, relax, get with the story and go for it. Just don't jump ahead of things to far and you will love this game. One time it would not permit me to go ahead. I thought it froze. But it had not. Just needed to hunt a little harder. I thought this to be a good idea. Keep up the hunt for pieces. In otherwords, it is up to you to play the game and have fun without going nutty.
No blood and guts, thank goodness for a change.. I am waiting for the next episode..Yeah!! The music was boring to me. But not bad. You have to try it and you will play more of the "SNARK BUSTERS" games. This is my second one. Cannot go wrong on this one. And i am! picky. But always willing to give a game a try. 60 minutes is a must for me.

Addicted Snark Buster member
I have to admit to being totally addicted to the Snark Busters Club.
The graphics again are wonderful, the music campy and fun, the storyline as much fun as the first, and the game play entertaining. Unfortunately, no voice overs or modes of play.
This is a FROG game with interactive play in each scene. Most pieces are easy to find, some hidden requiring another piece be placed or an action. There are some puzzles, easy but fun.
Very much like the original but with a new character, Jack Blair, race car driver.
This is a great game for any level of player who just wants a fun play. Great to play after a long day or on a dreary day when you just need something to chase the blahs away.
I highly recommend both Snark Buster games!

Good HOG, if more style than substance
Cheerful music and charming scenes make for a enjoyable hidden object game as you follow young Jack, automobile racer extraordinaire, on a snark hunt on through steampunk inspired scenery. A bit of wit and snarkiness are a nice change from the doom and gloom HOGs.
Not a particularly challenging game (I got over half way through on the demo), but just the thing (with a cup of tea) after a stressful day.

I Want to Go to a Place Like This!
Oh my gosh! What a blast! From the get-go, the visually attractive graphics are superb. The colorful scenes are incomparable and the sound effects are perfect. Such a fantastic world, so rich in beauty; it very much reminds me of the extraordinary artwork found in high-end fantasy calendars.
I have never played a HO like this and I found it thoroughly delightful! The games are varied, fun and leave you smiling - nothing too difficult, nor too easy. The imagination that went into each scene, puzzle, every twist and turn, and the game play's other-worldly ins & outs was eye-popping.
I did not want to leave - this is a place I would LOVE to go to in real life. Some of the interplay was wonderfully engaging - if allowed, I would have stayed and played several of the mini games repeatedly. (Perhaps the makers could add an award, whereas the player may go back and play some of those games to their heart's content, once they complete the game.)
Good, clean fun, of the highest order. What a fine way to escape. The creators have allowed the player to be transported to an exceptionally fantastic world. This was a treat!
I have not played the first game in this series. I have downloaded it and I hope it is as exciting as this one.

Fun steampunk game (but not as good as the 1st one!)
I really love the graphics, storyline, music and ideas of Snark Busters games. However, after playing Snark Busters (the first one) I was disappointed that they developers did not bring Kira (the main character) back in this game. However, it was still a fun storyline and a good game. I only gave it 4/5 bars for fun factor because it wasn't as good (IMO) as the first one. But still 5/5 stars for overall!

Still good fun, but not as challenging as 1
I really enjoyed playing this game through to the end, but it definitely lacked something from the first game. Like the first game it had some really fun environments and the storyline was a series of funny tv news updates about your "disappearance". I was even okay with not being able to turn off the hints. My biggest complaint though was the "errors" or inconsistencies in the mechanics or whatever you want to call them. For example at the part where you have a bit of cheese to find the cheese was in full colour (which means it was findable), however it should have been red as I had to complete something else before the piece became available. (I don't think I'm spoiling anything here, just trying to save other's sanity). Little things like this made it more difficult, but maddening because it wasn't my inability to solve the puzzle that slowed me down.
I highly recommend to the developers to include the opportunity to play an expert level where changes to other areas of a level are not automatically pointed out.
I played this game on my iPad.

Another great game
Like the first Snark Busters, I really like this game though it has a bit different of a feel it's still gorgeous. Screenshots don't do these games justice. You have to play them to really get the feel of them. I did wish it was a bit longer though and can't wait for the next one to come out.

Will you bust the Snark?
Well, this occupied several hours of my day -- I just had to keep playing! The game play is the same as in Snark Busters Welcome to the Club, so of course the novelty is gone. But that said, it's hard not to appreciate the delightful artwork, clever animations, and the sheer fantasy of it all.
And the story is different from the first, you needn't have played it to enjoy this one. You should though -- it was excellent!
It is a FROG (Fragmented Hidden Objects), but most all the parts are quite easy to spot even without looking at the inventory. The real interest comes from finding the hidden items so that you can finally accomplish other tasks. The puzzles are also clever.
So much of the pleasure in this game is the wacky environments you walk into. It takes "through the looking glass" to a whole other dimension.
