Twisted Lands: Insomniac Collector's Edition
Another great Twisted Lands!
This chapter in the series is very enjoyable. The story line kept me moving thru quickly. Graphics are great and puzzles a challenge, worth the CE price

Thumbs Up! This is one game I will play again, and maybe again, LOL. Superb graphics. HOs were easy although some puzzles had me scratching my head.Never went over board with one thing. Game seem to draw you in and was never boring, to the point you couldnt wait for the ending. EXCELLENT, good job to the creators. Keep em comin.

I enjoyed this game for the most part. The graphics are excellent and the HOS/mini games are fun. As you work through the game you find medical records, journals and newspaper clippings that expand the story, which is fun. You really need to play the first game (Shadow Town) before this game or you'll be really lost. You are the wife/girlfriend of the main character in the first game. You're in a mental hospital... maybe...or you're still on the island....maybe....or you're both places.
I really enjoyed the game until the very end. i thought they were going one direction, but they went a totally different way. It was also a confusing and somewhat unsatisfying ending, although it was quite shocking. I imagine they are planning a third game and maybe they'll explain things more fully.
The bonus chapter was not worth the price of the CE. It was okay and filled in more back story, but it was short and not that much fun,
I recommend this game, but only if you've played Shadow Town and don't mind confusing endings. Also, I would purchase the SE not the CE.

Not what I expected
I'm writing this weeks after playing since it is on sale for others today.
I wanted this because I LOVED the first one, which I had played on my android. This was full of twists and turns and kept me entertained, interested and intrigued. Enough so, that it made my girlfriend jealous of my time- that's the danger of these kinds of games.
If I had any complaints while playing them, they weren't enough for me to remember. I just wish I could play it again from the beginning WITHOUT having played it before (in other words, can't wait to see another one).
This is a must play, must have game that rivals the original.

Hidden Objects with a Twist
I?ll start with the basics here; the graphics were pretty good, the music wasn?t to annoying and did give you breaks during the game. Of course you always have the option to turn off or down the music if one so desires. The hint button charges at a pretty good rate most of the time which, and doesn?t take away your hint if you need to while trying to navigate the rather lengthy maze of hidden object scenes that are in this game. Unlike some games with hidden object scenes, this one actually gets all the objects names right. And while the story plot was pretty much apparent from the start, there was a twist at the end.
The big drawback for me concerning this game was the fact that it really did need a map, and the skip buttons on the puzzles need to charge a lot faster. I found myself going and doing other things while the skip button was charging because it took so long. At one point, I made the mistake of clicking on the instruction sheet after the button had started loading and when I went back to the puzzle, the skip button had disappeared. I backed out of the puzzle and went back in, and the button reappeared.
I recommend this game based on the fact that some people might really love all the wonderful hidden object games that are in this puzzle. While I do enjoy them too, it would have been more fun had there been a map I think to help direct my way between the puzzles and solving the games.

Not up to snuff
The game play is just awkward to me. That the "Angel" in the story wore CFMPs and a dress likely to be seen in a red light district in the fishing boat was an insult to women and then she smoked...? I find it strange these days to find cigars, cigarettes, ashtrays, etc in HOSs but super sexy Angel with a nicotine addiction... just bad taste and insulting to women (I'm a man BTW)
Aside from that, the game was poorly conceived and believe me, you can find better.
