A Delightful Fantasy Game
This game is another of the very entertaining fantasy games in Big Fish's repertoire. Beautiful graphics, great sound and background music, and mildly challenging mini-games. The storyline was a little disjointed, but still interesting. And the message of peace promoted by the game is especially notable in these times.

Great game but fell at the last fence when I got stuck, I presume it was because I did not play it in the order expected, I have been days trying to find my last dagger, in chapter 7, it is most frustrating, but I cannot let it go.....

Love this game
This game was fun to play. Different from a lot of the hidden object games. You don't go back and forth to the same place over and over. Once you find what it is you need, you move on. The story was great too. I hope they make a second game. Enjoy!

Fantastic game, fun story, great locations

There are 8 chapters in the game. Each chapter has an average of 5 scenes, but each chapter is self-contained. You will not need to go back to completed chapters to find any objects. The first 6 chapters were quite easy, but I found I actually needed the walkthrough a couple of times for the last 2 chapters (which surprised me since I had no problem with the first 6 chapters figuring out what was needed). The only reasons I'm not giving it 5 stars are that (1) there are other games which had more challenge and (2) the screen blacked out between chapters for quite a few seconds that I thought there was a problem with my computer (although I was expecting this by the end of chapter 4).
All in all, a very enjoyable game.

Nice variety of gameplay, fun fantasy setting
The basic gameplay is a bit different. Your inventory displays every item you need to find per chapter starting as greyed out, then coloured after you find the object. You can combine inventory items to create other items that you need ,which is a fun little game mechanic. You still have a few hidden object scenes, but much fewer than average for the genre.
I enjoy fantasy settings, and I really loved the location art. The style was really unique and the scenes looked a bit like watercolours. I liked the music a lot too as a nice accompaniment to the game.
A lot of the puzzles involved remembering sequences or finding codes of various types, but you usually had to apply some logic to figure out how to use the codes. The other puzzles were of average difficulty. Some of the items were a little tricky to find and I ended up using more hints than I usually do.
Overall I thought this was a beautiful game with fun characters, and a refreshing change from the standard HOG.

A delightfully different diversion
To start off with I made a couple attemps to fathom out what to do, where to go and why. It seemed way out of my league. Why? Surely one little game is not going to get the better of me - so I game back to it and perservered. Gradually it all came to me, although I did have to use the walk through blog in a couple of sticky places but by the time I had reached the end I was somewhat disappointed that it was finished. You had to explore various locations and meet interesting people, help them with some problems whilst trying to locate and help the professor with a mysterious discovery. The dialogue, various books and the diary all added to the progress of the game but did become a little tiresome at times but not overbearing. Graphics were quite clear and well defined in most cases but some scenes were a little dark. The puzzles were different, ingenious, intriguing and challenging.
The hidden objects were of the pictorial variety with each set pertaining to that particular chapter alone. These objects were located over several scenes and some needed extra work to be located. Because of all this they were quite difficult to find in most cases as some tended to blend into the surrounding backgrounds. I found this game to be decidedly different and quite challenging and well worth sticking with if at first you are not impressed.
