Spirits of Mystery: Amber Maiden
It's in my No pile
OK, I'm clueless. I just never got where this game wanted to take me. There were lots of things to like but way too many more that were frustrating. Some HOS that were straightforward and some that defied English comprehension and/or had objects completely obscured.
Hints are completely useless in the game and take way too long to refresh in the HOS.
If ever a game needed a map, this is it.
Lots to like in this game. It's a testament to all the good things that it took me so long to finally send it to my NO locker.

Worthwhile for 2.99
Haven't been very far into the game but took advantage of the "spirits" sale...nice story, old fashioned costuming add to the game appeal. Well worth buying the package being offered.

Good storyline and fun game.
The game overall was fun to play.
There are both hidden object scenes and mini games to play. The hidden object scenes were often the same scene with different objects to find. On some objects you had to perform an extra task (such as opening a drawer) in order to find the object.
The mini games were good and ranged from fairly easy to just a little challenging! All the games had very good directions on how to play.
The voice acting was very appropriate and the storyline was good.
The bonus chapter added an extra hour of game playing and it tied in very well with the main story.

Good story and fun
Actually a fun story. Great graphics, colors, etc.
What I do not like is that just when I feel like I am getting somewhere and finding things here and there on my journey - I complete a HO group, go to another room and there is another HO group. Sometimes there are just too many HO groups. Gets boring when I feel like that is all I'm doing - finding HO in a group....
Just not as adventurous as I had first thought.
- I did give it a 5start because I know there are many who do not mind all the HO groupings.

Nice game, rather easy
Detailed, crisp, imaginative graphics make this game enjoyable to play. It's all about wandering around searching for various objects in order to open doors/pick locks/fix mechanisms etc. I am not an expert player, but I found the puzzles easy, ridiculously easy in some cases, and most of the objects were easy to find, so, although there are lots of scenes in the game, I finished it quite quickly. There were rather too many HOG scenes, especially towards the end, as if the developers had run out of ideas. And the music got monotonous after a while: there should be more variety.
Overall, not a bad game at all if you want something undemanding to while away a few hours, but there are better: Spirits of Mystery: Eclipse Mountain is more satisfying.

This is such a pleasant game, no over the top spookiness or outlandish HO scenes. I didn't have to use the hint button outside of HO scenes, and even then only once or twice. The perfect mix of fun and challenge, and the story line is intriguing as well!

Wanted 2 play it again!
Great game. Downloaded it immediately after playing trial. What fun! I played in casual level and will go back and play in expert. I ignored storyline as usual, so can not comment on it. I also play with no sound so again I can not comment on it. The HO's were usually done without hints; some puzzles created more of a challenge.

Fun Game, Cohesive Story Line
This was a really nice game to play. The story kept moving forward without a huge amount of guess work. Graphics and narrative very good. Lots of good HO scenes.
