The Tiny Bang Story
Charming Puzzle Game
This is a very charming hidden object/puzzle game. Unlike so many other of the hidden object type games out there today, there's no dark, sinister atmosphere. (Not that dark and sinister don't have their place, but some variety is nice.) The games has some lovely, brightly colored hand-drawn art, and nice music. There is very little by way of storyline, but somehow that doesn't seem to matter. The beauty of this little miniature world is enough to be engaging. Unlike most hidden object/puzzle games, there are no tutorials, no hints, no way to skip puzzles. You've got to just feel your way around until you figure it out. I found this to be part of the game's charm, but some could find that frustrating. The one aspect I did find frustrating was that a couple of the mini-games were arcade style games that require fairly fast reflexes - not super-challenging, but enough to be annoying. You can't skip over these mini-games, and the games don't save your progress. If you mess up, you have to start over from the beginning of the mini-game, rather than starting from where you last "died". Other than a couple of these annoying arcade style mini-games, however, I found the puzzles fun and challenging, and the game thoroughly enjoyable.

I found this game to be very intriguing and fun until I beat it, which ubfortunately didn't take very long. Also, there were a few puzzles that I wish had a skip option. Overall though, this game was a fun challenge.

Lots to like about this game - very original graphics, lovely sound and game play.
A couple of faults 1/ The compass game! Annoying+++, far too difficult and pointless. 2/ Lack of storyline.

Strange but interesting game...
This is not the kind of game you usually get. The graphics are funny. There are many objects to find - which can be hard - and mini-games to solve - sometimes also hard. The problem is that there are no real hints, and no possibility of skipping the mini-games, which can be really frustrating. All in all, an entertaining game - but be patient!

This was a fun one for me. I do remember that having to click on the bugs to gain a hint got kind of annoying (some of the items I just could not find). A couple of the adventure parts got confusing but figured them out. Definitely a buy if you like these games.

I really loved the idea behind this game...the artwork, the music, and the challenges. There were a few spots in the minigames where the gameplay was a bit clunky, so I took off a star for that, but all in all...lots of fun!

A controversial game..
Well this game was so controversial . Sometimes I hated it and wondered why I bought it and when I turned it off my mind was there trying to find the solution to the puzzle. Up to this moment I cannot say for sure whether I liked it or not. Surely it is not a classic hidden object game but that is the main reason why someone will love it or hate it. I cannot recommend this game or not recommend it because I am still puzzled , but I recommend you give it a try in the one hour trial. After 10 minutes of playing it you will know if you are a lover or a hater of this game.

The art style and quality were wonderful and really set a nice tone. The main problem for me was that there was no story to go with that. The tasks to be completed seemed pretty random, and there was no explanation as to how things fit together. Then, the game just abruptly ends, with no resolution. (But I guess, with no story, there's nothing to resolve.) It was almost atmospheric enough to pull it off, but it just didn't quite do it for me.
The puzzles were varied in style and ranged from reasonably easy to reasonably difficult. And for me, they also ranged from mostly fun to mostly frustrating.
All in all, the game was enjoyable, but if I had it to do over again, I wouldn't have purchased it. It just didn't deliver enough, in my opinion, and I was left wanting something more.
