Age of Enigma: The Secret of the Sixth Ghost
It is an interesting game, but some parts are quite boring. I bought thinking it would be better than it was. Recommend for kids and teens.

ADVENTURE GAME NO HOS
I Enjoyed playing an Adventure Game without HOS
I Enjoyed the Graphics
The mini games are math oriented and visually oriented...
This was an okay game and worth the purchase price
But not a game that i will play more than once

I'll preface this review by saying that I'm not entirely sure how I ended up buying this game. Maybe my children did it accidentally. I'm not sure. I just all of a sudden had it purchased, and I definitely don't remember playing a demo of it. But since it was now paid for, I went ahead and played it. So, my first suggestion would be to try a demo.
It's not an awful game, but it's not exactly a good game either. It's really short, and frankly I think it would be pretty easy to complete half of the game during the hour of demo time alone. It started out as intriguing and looking as though it had potential, but quickly got repetitive. Many of the puzzles are way too easy. A few of them are easy to figure out, but hard to get it clicked/positioned in the spot you know something needs to be in, occasionally forcing you to start it over. And there are one or two that are a huge pain.
It has cartoon-style graphics which are okay, though not necessarily the best out there. I don't remember much about the sound, so most likely it wasn't annoying, but wasn't fabulous either.
There are better adventure games on this site. My personal recommendation would be to pass on this one, but again, try the demo first. It's definitely not a buy it before trying it game.

Didn't hold my interest [spoilers]
Trying to remember why I bought this game, I think I was influenced by other players' positive reviews and the unusual demo, which featured anime-style graphics, unique characters, and a different overall "feel" from the basic hidden object games to be found on Big Fish. But the game play of "Age of Enigma" didn't sustain that initial enjoyment for me. I didn't get far into the story before becoming bored with repeating the same actions. Also, the first chapter's Kapangya idol was a different kind of tool for these games, but with too much power: "Got a problem - get Kapangya!"
The idea of rescuing distressed and trapped souls isn't new, though I haven't seen many adventure games with that primary goal. Though the moral theme is healthy, I was surprised by the number of reviewers who recommended this game for kids. The overall look of every scene was essentially just filth and destruction. The bits and pieces needed to solve individual puzzles were often nearly indistinguishable from their backgrounds. I also can't imagine kids wanting to find where to put the jagged bits of background images; after the first one, I found the others to be dull and/or frustrating. The final straw for me was the disturbing sacrificial altar scene. Are parents really okay with their kids seeing rivulets of blood coating an altar and pouring across the floor, a deranged-looking man standing over a primary character's wife with a lethal blade and no way for the character to rescue her, and the woman's ultimate cutting remarks? I doubt it.
This game probably suits players who loathe hidden object games (no such scenes in this game); want something unusual; and enjoy Native American, Incan, or Mayan histories. Not for me.
One last comment: It may have been just my rather old equipment, but the game cursor jumped around crazily in scenes, and I usually couldn't get it within the focal point to select things. Many clicks were necessary just to choose an item from the inventory and apply it. Finally I turned off the game cursor, which stopped its jerky behavior, but also removed some of the pleasure from playing the game.

Quick Adventure mainly for children
This adventure story line or plot seemed to jump from one place to another. Your goal was to free souls and I was confused as to why many were trapped, where they were trapped and exactly how not changing the past helped you get free. How exactly does one escape hades anyway? Predictable ending and very short on play time. The graphics were good but the sound was on one minute and off the next.
While I said this game was mainly for children be advised that the story might frighten younger children. I think anyone over the age of 15 might find this game a bit dull. Maybe I just expect more from a game sold by BF.
