FOR WHEN YOU NEED CHEERING UP
SUMMARY/LENGTH: This is a cheerful and humorous game. It took me a little over 6 hours to play, but it seemed like only 2 or 3 hours because it was SO MUCH FUN that time flew by. When?s the next one coming out? Aren?t they overdue with a new Snark game? The ending certainly leaves room for more adventures. This is a lovely game to play when you?re down in the dumps. It is so whimsical and eccentric that I wouldn?t even care if it didn?t have a storyline.
- Jack Blair is the world?s greatest current car racer. His grandfather was even better, but he disappeared in a tunnel during his last race. And Jack wants to become a certified Snark Buster.
- 6 brilliant and quirky levels with several locations each before Jack can become an official Snark Buster and race the car they have for him to drive.
- Progress forward by playing very colorful and bright Fragmented HOS. Pieces are easy to find. But some will be unobtainable until later. Once you?ve successfully completed a level, you?ll be given a medallion which will gain you entry into the next level.
- Going to a new location and putting together new fragment objects and solving problems will frequently change a prior location, making additional fragments available. The backgrounds are done in a highly-exaggerated style that fits perfect with the game.
- Although you go into a backwards world, it was not mystifying and it was easily adaptable.
- Jessica Marrey is again in pursuit of Jack. She keeps you updated wherever there is a television on the mystery of Jack. She?s a hoot.
- Superb animation and sound effects. Jaunty music (although sometimes there was no music).
NOT SO GOOD:
- I?m sure there?s something someone will complain about, but I certainly have nothing.

Reviews you can believe
I read the reviews and figured "Oh... what the heck"
I generally do not care for fractured object games, unless well carried out. This game hits the mark. Colorful scenes and a riveting storyline. Bright, cheery, smooth, and no
witches, ghosts, demons, spell casting, sorcery, religious (druid, Aztec, black magic etc.) ceremonies. Me want more, more, more!
Not a long game, but that's good; because I will play this many more times. Just plain fun.

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.

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!

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.
