Very Cool Game!
I try to be careful what I spend money on, but this game got me hooked. I was settled in, ready to relax and enjoy the game, but then it was over! Game sites really need to post an approximate time of game play. "The Fool" is a great game and very funny. I was eager for the fun to continue after the trial period was over. Unfortunately, the rest of the game wasn't much longer than the one free hour. If you're not into long games, this one is for you!

fun but short
Lots of running around for find items. My biggest complaint is that the hint button is worthless. It is a fun game to play but lot of the puzzles are very hard to play. Still a fun game.

Very enjoyable game
This is a lovely Hid Obj game. The difficulty level was perfect for some thoughtful play without being overly frustrating. The puzzles got a bit harder as the game progressed with the final strategy game being the hardest - but do-able. There was a decent mix of hidden object and puzzles throughout. The graphics were good and the storyline interesting. It was fun progressing through completely different worlds/kingdoms to accomplish the game goals. There were very few times that I was at a loss as to what to do next and I never had to use the Hint button. If I found I was stuck with no inventory items I just re-visited the available rooms/areas and something always popped up or it became obvious I missed something I was suppposed to pick up. The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is because I'm not a big fan of hidden object scenes that include objects that are out of time and place for the period the story is set it. For example, this was essentially a medieval period game but I was asked to find things like blow dryers and computers in the hidden object scenes. Not a big fan of that kind of incongruity. I also would have liked an option to go through the talking/story scenes faster by clicking on the screen after I was done reading the text instead of having to wait for the narrator to read the text. I didn't want to skip them all together as I like following the story within a game but I would have liked to be able to read it at my own pace. Other than that, I very much enjoyed this game.

Cute game, nice HO interplay. Storyline is your basic fairy tale. Bought for $2.99 and for that price you can't go wrong. Nice change of pace from all of the dark games out there. Good game to unwind to. ****

Was I the fool to buy this?
Absoultely not! Although it was a very short little game I still found it to be quite entertaining. A great game for someone who is just starting to play HOGs. My son played this game and he really did enjoy it. Perfect for someone who is just looking for a great time without all the suspense or darkness that sometimes comes with these games. There is only one puzzle in this game that was really hard to figure out but the Walkthrough Guide gave a link on you tube and I watched it being done and completed it. Thanks again for a fun loving game to break the monotony of such serious minded ones.

The reason I got this game was actually because another reviewer recommended it from a different game's review page (one of the Love Chronicles games#.
The visual quality for this game was really done well. It was a fun game although it did take me only 2 hours to complete so it was rather a short game #as many other people have already stated). This is why the Level of Challnge was lower out of all the ratings. The storyline was quite amusing and being able to find items to dress up your character was certainly quite different from other games I have played. This was quite the entertaining game and worth the purchase.

Short and sweet - A guy's review
A nice "save the princess" story in wonderful fantasy/steampunk settings. It looks wonderful and is quite lighthearted, which should suit those who doesn't like the creepier games out there (I like all kinds as long as the story is ok).
It gives you two choices of difficulty level: Casual and Expert.
I played it on expert level, but still found it rather easy, though sparkles only appear on the HOG scenes.
There are some nice creative puzzles and some well created interactive HOG scenes. The HOG scenes seems very well thought out, and it seems to me they are not too overcrowded and items are close to true size.
It never gets too frustrating, though at times I feel a bit lack of information on what you are supposed to do, or i.e. how many items you need to collect of a certain type.
The biggest downside to the game is the length. It is rather short, but I was lucky to get it at a Daily Deal, and feel it was well worth that price. I am not sure I would recommend it at full price, but be sure to look out for deals on this little gem.
The casual gaming scene is basically been overrun by the better gender, and one can often see that in the way the games are created too. I don't really mind as I am in it for the puzzles and challenges, but some guys might struggle with some settings in some games. This game though, I think is suited for both genders, and your character is actually male in this one.
Recommended as a Daily Deal or if you are looking for something short and sweet
