A lot of fun
This game starts off in the Middle ages but it doesn't stay there. The puzzles varied. I thought the very last part was silly but I oh well. It was a fun game to play anyway.

Goofy, but fun game
--Both my hubby and I enjoyed playing this game. Some new quirky, not run of the mill puzzles.
Some of them challenge your eye, so look hard for clues.
We cut our teeth playing Myst many years ago, and were hooked on PC games since then.

It's a strange game, the grafic is funny and also the story

A Couple Really Hilarious Short Scenes
Based on complete game, casual mode.
Storyline: Typical fairy tale. The hero has to save the kingdom to gain the princess. He flubs the first attempt and has a lot of adventures trying to fix the problem. The poor dragon with a sore mouth got my emphathy.
Special Effects: Good. I had to especially laugh at the cute adorable furry little monster near the end who burst out of the wall, shimmied about, ate some locks and disappeared out a locked door. He should have a game of his own or at least be a sidekick to a hero. Did I say he was cute and adorable? The earphones for the dog in the cemetary and sheet costume were also worth a laugh.
Graphics: Crisp, clear and vibrant colors; fairly well detailed. Even the horses looked much more natural than in most other games.
Voice-overs and music: okay, non-intrusive. Narrator was a bit cheesy sounding at times.
HOS: Nicely detailed and fairly sized. Some interaction, such as baking bread, breaking a light bulb for cracked bulb.
Puzzles: Variety, easy to intermediate difficulty.
Ending: A little abrupt.
CONS: It was a little odd that our hero is in a thoroughly modern elevator in the last chapter when the story is set in the middle ages.
Hints are available only for the HOS. Otherwise, you're on your own in determining where to go and what to do.

This game was OK. Too short. Some of the puzzles are pretty hard, though. I don't know where they get off saying this game is hilarious. Just another game.

The game was okay. I play A LOT of HOG games. I thought this one would be more fun than it was. I didn't think any of it was funny like some of the reviewers said. The hidden object scenes and puzzels were okay. Nothing outstanding but I got it at $2.99 so I'm not complaining. But I will say this was one that when it ended I was relieved. Like I said it was okay but there are certainly a lot better games.

Quirky but cute.
I didn't find this game to be nearly as hilarious as some others have, but the guards and especially the pumpkin in the cemetery warranted a few giggles from me. It was an easy game with the puzzles and minigames being of the standard fare you normally come across. The games I most enjoyed were the astronomy ones, as I've never come across this type in any game I've played thus far. The scenes in the beginning seemed too stark and could have used more decorative items in them, but they got better as the story progressed. The dragon is the best thing about this game, and it's cute when it makes it wuffling sound when it looks at what it thinks is its baby! I kinda feel sorry for it at the end. Beginners are likely to benefit most from this game as it's easy, but more experienced gamers can play this to pass the time on a lazy afternoon. This game is short so don't spend a lot on it. Use a game coupon or wait for one of those half off deals. I was lucky enough to pick it up for $2.99 on one of those weekly sales and I'm glad because I wouldn't have wanted to pay more for it. As always, try before you buy so you won't be too disappointed.

OK Game - no challenge!
This game is best for children or teens. The HO scenes are easy. Puzzles are easy to average. You have to keep dressing a guy to go to a new place. It is not very long. Will not play it again as I do other games.

Pretty but boring
This game was too straightforward. The best thing about it was the beautiful cutscenes. Some interesting puzzles, but overall too easy. Not challenging enough.

looks great but hard to play
apperently you have to play the game elements in the proper order (as per the strategy guide), or you cannot advance. For example, if you do the wrong thing first you will waste plenty of time--you can't get the ale for the sawman or the pipe for the prisoner if you go out of sequence. And if you read the strategy guide (sold separately), then each move is spelled out in too much detail and there's no challenge. This gets 2 stars only because it looks pretty good. IMHO, there's many better games here. I like the Buckingham Palace and the Elvis Graceland games.
