Definitely a buy!
Cannot believe this is a Daily Deal! If you like lots of challenging HO games, a creepy amusement park setting & sinister dwarf to pursue, gorgeous immersive environment, and some really good mini-games, this is a no-brainer purchase for $2.99. Other reviewers have compared it to Weird Park; I would agree but must add that I enjoyed Dreamland more. Game length was 3-4 hours and I liked earning the awards; encourages you to play again to better your previous game. Loved the shooting gallery!! I really have no negative comment about the game except that it's better played at one sitting so you can keep track of items you're searching for/needing to use in other HO scenes. The map is a big help in navigating around the game. Enjoy! :)

I love amusement parks
I bought this game because I love anything to do with amusement parks and I was not disappointed!!. The music was soothing and there were plenty of minigames that weren't too challenging but not real easy either. The map came in handy and I loved the fact that you had to buy a ticket to each area. I give this game a big 5 stars.

good game but really very easy
Not a bad game. Very easy game. The HOS are good but the puzzles are very very easy. My main trouble with the game is that it gave you sparkles on where things are. Let me find them myself. There was a flow to the game but still had areas to explore to move on. I could not get the hint button to stop telling me what to do. The Hint button did not work in the HOS. The graphics are great and so is the music. Some voice over.

Some good points, but kind of annoying
This game was just OK. Some of the objects in the HO scenes were way too hard to find...I ended up clicking on some just by chance, and I never really did see what they actually looked like. Some were just too tiny and too thoroughly hidden.
It was hard at times to figure out what I was supposed to do next, so I was glad to have access to a walkthrough, but the walkthrough abruptly stops before the game is actually finished. I also noticed some possible glitches towards the end that could prevent you from achieving the "awards" they mention for finding extra items.
All in all, I finished the game in just slightly over 5 hours, and came out more irritated than entertained. I'd say to look elsewhere, in spite of the nice artwork and decent previous reviews.

SO MUCH FUN I FORGOT IT WAS SO LONG
STORYLINE: You enter a nightmare in an amusement park. You?re met by a character who informs you that you will have to solve his riddles or meet an unsavory fate ? he?s just what you?d expect in a nightmare. (His dialogue could have been written because he was difficult to understand and he is, after all, the culprit.) MISCELLANEOUS STUFF: You have a journal, which will record information not obtained from the game play, a task list, and an interactive map, which sometimes (not always) tells you where there is an activity. There are various awards you can earn ? most you collect automatically at some point. TIP: Find all the starfish and marbles for extra awards. One of my pet peeves is that games don?t give you this type of information until you accidentally click the bonus item. Why the secret?
GAMEPLAY: There are quite a few locations, so the interactive map is so handy. Hint system will also show you where you to go next and tell you to click on it to go there immediately. Since there?s so much to do (sometimes 15 things are pending) and see, it?s a real time saver from backtracking. The interactive HOS are not too crowded and objects are nicely sized. [Tip: watch the cursor change to a red/yellow glow for the interactive objects.] Sometimes the objects are so close to the bottom that you accidentally back out of the HOS ? annoying.
Graphics are nice. Very polished and well developed game. Wide variety of puzzles and mini-games ? some are quite challenging. Mini-games have a long skip feature. [When you get to the rabbit trick, if you move the want the wrong way, you?ll end up with several different items. Try it for a laugh.] Sometimes I forgot what the goal was because the game lasted longer than I thought it would ? even with the map allowing you to hop from place to place and the hint system, it took me about 8 hours to reach the goal. Then there was additional stuff. Usually 5-6 hours is the maximum I can play a game without wondering when will it end. This game kept my interest to the end and the length didn?t bother me. But I did take a break before finishing all the additional stuff.
W/T vs. HINTS: At about halfway through the game, I thought I?d check the walkthrough to see if I skipped anything, but the game isn?t all that well organized (i.e., not linear in the least) to find a walkthrough that helpful unless you are looking for something in particular. The hints are the way to go unless you are using a W/T from the beginning. Well worth the money.

MUST BUY FOR A FUN TIME!
Finally a game that really challenges you. This one gave me a run for my money. Enough scenes to keep you interested. HOS can be tough at times, but not really hard. Many of the puzzles have more than one component to solve them. Wish I had bought this one earlier. I kept passing it up as it looked like a kids game, but don't let it fool you. This one is for us hardcores. I could go on and on. Just buy it!

Really good HOG
This was a rally fun HOG. It had A LOT fog HOGs so be warned if you prefer more adventure. Anticipating the sequel.

Great fun. Great graphics
Challenging enough but won't stress you out or send you to a walkthrough. Mini games are good-a bit different. Love the graphics. A lot of running around but the map keeps it from being frustrating. I started the trial but knew I would purchase soon after.
