The Tiny Bang Story
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.

Loved the game
This is a very creative and unique game. There are two kinds of puzzles - jigsaw puzzle pieces scattered all over the place, and then "thinking" puzzles. Many other reviewers have talked about how much fun it is to solve the "thinking" puzzles. Usually when you solve a puzzle you get an item that you need for the next step. As you're clicking on the screen looking for jigsaw puzzle pieces you also are looking for the locations of the "thinking" puzzles. They are usually hidden in some kind of container, or in a picture on the wall, etc. Then once you find it a bubble moves out on the right side of the screen showing you pieces that you need, how many and what they look like. Once you collect all the pieces you can work to solve the puzzle. Each area of the game has 4 or 5 rooms, which you reach by either solving a puzzle to open a door, or by clicking on a doorway to open it. Items that you need are usually spread out around all the rooms. Several people were frustrated at not being able to solve the puzzles and not having a good hint system. I searched online and found a walkthrough that helped when I got stuck a few times on the puzzles. There is no skip button, so if you can't work your way through a couple of the arcade games, oh well. This is the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. Not everyone is able to play fast enough to solve the arcade games, and it's not really fair to have them buy the game and then not be able to finish it. I did finish the game and loved it, but feel bad for those who wanted to finish and couldn't. I do recommend the game, but be aware that it requires some playing skill. One other glitch I found in the game: be sure to find all the jigsaw puzzle pieces before finishing all the "thinking" puzzles in an area. If you finish all the puzzles without finding all the jigsaw pieces you still move to the next area, but then you can't use the jigsaw pieces correctly.

More than hidden object!
I enjoyed that this game left you alone with its special graphics, and understated musical score. It was much more than just a hidden object game.... It was a very pleasant experience. The puzzles were challenging at times, but mostly modest good fun. The plot was shallow at best, but intriguing enough to keep you coming back for one more try! Lots of different types of challenges at every chapter. The ending which by ending I mean the VERY END, is a bit disappointing. I almost couldn't tell if it was actually done or not.... Wouldn't stop me from recommending it to others though.

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!

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.
