Snark Busters: All Revved up
back to the snark hunt
I enjoyed the first one so much that I was happy to find this. There is a new lead character, but this game seemed shorter and less challenging than the first. Still enjoyable although I thought it had a little less humor.

Every now and then, I need a break from the dark games and these are great fun! Lots of different puzzles and games along with interesting story lines. Definite must buy every time!

Fun to play!
This was so fun to play with my first-grader while he was sick. It was funny and beautiful and he loved exploring the scenes. Good clean fun your kids can enjoy, too!

GOOD CHANGE OF PACE
This game is a lighthearted fantasy with lots of action to keep your interest. This is the second game in this series that I have played and I will definitely get all of them.
I know there is a special word for the kind of HO game this is, but I can't remember it. It is the kind of game where you find pieces of items to complete the picture, and then use the item in the game.
The hint button was excellent and I used it a lot to navigate between active areas of the game, and occasionally to find that last piece of the HO. I only had to refer to the walk through once, which is a further indication of how good the hint button worked.
Very nice change of pace from the darker, more sinister games.

GOOD CLEAN FUN ---- NICE
It is good clean fun. Looks like it might be a little too short of a game, but it's a nice change/different.

A mediocre HOG with a SteamPunk connection
Snark Busters is a SteamPunk hidden object game that has a certain charm and is extremely interesting in that you play in fanciful environments both in the real world and in the backward world. Objects are ?broken? and must be found and assembled to be used and the entire scene is the hidden object field. No junk piles here. As far as that goes, it is a fun play but it also has puzzles. Where the hint recharges quickly in normal play, it takes forever to get to skip, and that is bad because almost all of the puzzles need to be skipped. The puzzles are awful. There is little idea given of how to play and some will not play at all. Worse, a couple are part of the action and have NO skip. You either play them or erase the game. Add the good and subtract the bad and you end up with a mediocre game. If you like SteamPunk, get the game, otherwise, you probably will regret buying it.

Fun and Relaxing
Fun game, very different than typical HO games. There aren't specific HO scenes, instead pieced of objects are scattered throughout the rooms and some puzzles are mixed in. The game is split into stages so there's a sense of completion once you get to the next door. Graphics aren't detailed or pretty but they're colorful, and get the job done. The sparkles accurately lead you to the next step so there's minimal frustration, and the hint button is helpful and accurate.
I mostly enjoyed this because it's a change from the eery ghost stories, it's fun and relaxing. I highly recommend!
