Escape the Emerald Star
For HOG addicts only.
To escape from the ship Emerald Star, you will play several interactive HOS, in many locations inside the ship.
The most interesting is that objects are not just described, sometimes what appears is its function, (such as "Preceded CDs" to cassette tapes), or you have to interact (such as "Put spider in Jar").
Each level finished, has a mini game like Mahjong, match 3, etc., and you will earning tools to help you to escape from the ship, as crowbar, pieces of a map, etc..
Enjoyable and relaxing game. Not challenging.
Do not forget to collect anchors to unlock the bonus. Two anchors in each HOS !

"Best Pure Hidden Object Game I've Played"
Most of the time is spent in hidden object searches. The story line does not intrude on the game. Their are awards for various things but the average player will be able to collect them all. There are puzzles between each level (25) of the jigsaw, match 3 and Shanghai (Majong) variety. They are not timed and do not dead end so just keep plugging until you finish them. In the end you must put your escape gear together and this may be the most difficult for some but again no penalties so relax. I enjoyed the game.

A winner - with 25 levels of cool hidden object scenes & awesome trophies for accuracy & speed . . . In addition, if you find all 50 anchors, you get to play bonus rounds of mahjong, which are similar to some of the puzzles that close out a few of the levels . . . Lastly, you get to solve the ultimate problem of escaping the ghost ship . . . !

Lots of Hidden Object Fun
Great game. Lots of hidden object game play. Fun minigames. Although the game is timed, there is plenty of time to find all the objects. Boat is reminiscent of Titanic, especially the staircase. I especially like the free play if you find 50 anchors.

Bare-bones HOG, no characters or story. Good if you like that.
This may be a bit skewed, because I don't care for bare-bones HOGs. There aren't cutscenes, no characters, no storyline to speak of. Just hidden object scenes. There are achievements you can be awarded, which give slightly more interest to the game. For me, though, this kind of game seems like drudgery.
On the plus side, the graphics and sound are decent.

Great Way To Practice Your Skills
I first got started with HOGs when I tried Spin Tops 'Little Shop' games. I was hooked. Then I moved onto the wonderful of IHOGS and AHOGS. This Spin Top game was fun, and had the trophies and mini-games that made it even better.
I think of it as a way to hone my skills in seeking out all those hidden objects in the games I love.

HOG, no adventure here
If you like HOS games, this is a good game. Graphics are clear, music is pleasant, but repeats a lot. Objects are not proportionate in size: one penny is 2 feet wide, while another in the same scene is 7-8 inches wide.
The storyline is over-used, but you rarely see any reference to the story, because all you're doing is finding hidden objects.

You have to just love HOS
If you just want to play HOS this is for you. No story just HO. I started out with this kind of game but now like the adventure of the new games.
