Snark Busters: All Revved up
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.
