Tales of Lagoona: Orphans of the Ocean
Spoiler Free - Tales of Lagoona: Orphans of...
I really liked this game. It's cute and funny and just plain fun.
This is like the Gardenscape games but Tales of Lagoona has more of a plot which helps to keep it interesting. The characters are drawn in a cartoon style which I thought was really cute and there were bits of dialogue that made me giggle.
The graphics were good. Hidden object scenes are good, no junkpile. I loved it that the characters have a cartoonish style to them. The gameplay was smooth, the loading time was fast, it had a very clean feel to it.
I really liked the music in this game. It's mellow, pretty, and relaxing. However, I made the mistake of leafing through some pics of my kids while leaving the game running - with the soundtrack playing - and it was like having my own personal "Hallmark" commercial. Just try it. See if it doesn't make you sentimental.
If you like the Gardenscape games or are wanting to check out a game with hidden object scenes that's not really a hidden object game, this might be what you're looking for.

My favorite game so far
This is the only BF game that I finished and immediately created another user to play all over again. So. Much. Fun.
At first, the Disney graphics irritated me. Isabella in her form fitting tops made me role my eyes. But after I started to investigate the whole story, and the wildly funny subtexts to the HO parts, I didn't mind a bit.
Though it looks like a game for kids, the puzzles (and the humor) are not at all. I spent a good week enjoying every aspect of this game (except for the Minesweeper game, which has always baffled me.)
I recommend this game highly!

FUN HO, "FIX-IT-UP", GAME, STORY!!!!
I absolutely LOVED this game and hope they come out with more of the same! The running dialogue gives you a great story and plot, the HO scenes are fantastic (you can play in casual mode or timed), there are games within the game, and you get to buy and "fix up" the orphanage so you "outwit" the "bad guys" who want to shut down the orphanage. Two thumbs up and a definite recommendation! As much as I love HOAs, I love great games like this one as well! Please come up with more on the Lagoona story!

EASY GOING, COLORFUL, AND FUN
I REALLY LIKE THIS GAME JUST LIKE EVERY ONE ELSE. COLORFUL SCENES, CONTINUING ADDITIONS OF ROOMS GET UNLOCKED AS YOU PROCEED, IN BETWEEN THE HIDDEN OBJECTS YOU PLAY PUZZLES, AND OTHER GAMES, I UNFORTUNATLY DONT GET OR LIKE SUDOKU SO I SKIP THAT ONE, ALSO THE NUMBERS IN THE BOX, ?????? SO I SKIP THOSE. THEY SHOULD INCLUDE ALTERNATIVES TO GAMES TO MAKE IT MORE ENTERTAINING LIKE SOME OTHER GAMES DO. ALL IN ALL ENJOY PLAYING IT. THINKING ABOUT BUYING IT, WASNT SURE HOW MANY LEVELS THERE WERE, APPEARS TO HAVE QUITE A FEW, I HAVE DONE PERHAPS 20????? TRY IT YOU'LL LIKE IT

If you like the Gardenscapes games, you'll like this one. The scenery and artistry is different - you are underwater at an Orphanage, waiting to be upgraded and beautified so that it isn't demolished.
You can choose time or untimed mode. You gather items to sell at market - not everything you collect will have a value but most will. You can send them to market and they'll sell while you scour for additional items. You get a skill bonus for finding objects shortly after they appear on the list. You begin with 5 items, and additional objects appear as each is find. If you see a rainbow fish swimming across the panaramic screen, catch it an it will find an object for you.
Some of the dialogue, especially with outsiders, is humorous. Each room has hidden gems - find them for extra cash and to unlock additional rooms. Take special requests for items for special deals.
Two drawbacks: the font is a little difficult to read (or perhaps it's the color combination) and the graphic details in the closeup HOGs are not crystal clear. Otherwise, the graphics are pleasant to look at underwater and mundane orphanage scenes.
SUMMARY: The location and story is so different from Gardenscapes, that you don't feel like you are playing the same the same type of game. That's how brilliantly done it is.

Just love these Laguna games. Can't wait for no 3!
Played this one second and Laguna 2 has in my view got the edge in terms of having more to do such as having to actively seek out the quest items as you go along. Nonetheless this is a lovely fun themed game that can be enjoyed by everyone. I love the graphics and the jaunty banter of the storyline
