Snark Busters: All Revved up
Looking for a Simple and Enjoyable Game To Play Over The Weekend? THIS IS IT!!
I stumbled across this while I was bored, and despite not liking another game in the Snark Busters series, I have to say I really enjoyed this one!
There wasn?t really much of a storyline which I found disappointing, however, I was pleased with the fact that it wasn?t a dark and gloomy game like we?re so used to seeing nowadays.
I?ll admit I wasn?t too delighted of the idea of every location being a HOS, but as I progressed through the game, I really enjoyed it! There are a lot of items to find, with some requiring you to go to different locations to get the last piece. Each item has its use, and some allow you to get the last piece of the item to complete it. This is a very different HOS, and I believe it will be enjoyed by many people.
While I was impressed with the graphics, which were very well done and up to date with the standard of todays? games, the music and sounds drove me insane. After about 5 minutes of playing with the music, I turned it off. The sounds were okay for the majority of the locations, except for one, which had repetitive, annoying sounds that annoyed the living daylights out of me.
The gameplay is relatively simple; Mostly HOS with the occasional puzzle hidden somewhere. I would recommend playing with the tutorial if you haven?t come across this type of game before, as I did. The game isn?t complicated at all, and would be a great start for beginners.
- Hint & Skip both recharged fast, and the hint was extremely helpful.
- Diary to keep track of events.
Don?t let the minimal features put you off, this is a very decent game. It would be perfect for a Sunday afternoon, and as I mentioned before, would be a great place to start if you were a beginner.

Love the time period and steampunk style!
I started with this game as a trial and was completely sucked in because of the visual effects! It seemed like a combo of Hidden Object and a little bit of Adventure (you have to find the certain objects and then it automatically happens or you can figure out what its use is.
The story line is very curious and inventive, which of course... my curiosity got the best of me and bought it!
I was so grateful to find it's not dark or gruesome like many new games right now.
Because of the graphics and uniqueness, I've replayed it a few times even though it always ends the same! ;)

Tons of fun!!
Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I was a little disappointed the main character changed. I hope there's a 3rd though and we can go Snark hunting again!!!!

Not as good as the first one but worth a go!

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.

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.

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.

Only for fragmented items fans
This is the first game from Snark Busters series I played and only lasted about half an hour. Each scene is full of fragmented items and some fragments are impossible to find without hint. There are also few puzzles but in my oppinion the game just lacks variety. Music is very annoying, I turned it off after 5 minutes and there's no voiceover.
What I liked about the game was interesting and original story, steampunk theme and nice colorful artwork.
If you really really like fragmented items games you'll like this one but it's not for me.
