Not worth the money
First of all, I am not a fan of HO's where you have to find pieces of items.
The hint button recharges quickly, which is good.
I found it confusing as to where to go next. You have to drag an inventory item to the hint button and it will show you where it is to be used. However, I found that I had yet to go to a location where the inventory item was to be used, so that was worthless.
Another worthless thing is the map. Usually maps will tell you where there is a room that has something in it you need to do. This doesn't (that I could find). Many of the mini games are confusing.
Thankfully I bought this game on a half price special.
Don't waste your money on this one.

Played ~Better Games!
To be honest i couldn't wait for this story to end! i'm not too keen on fragment HOS to begin with but the hint button was of no use at all when i got a bit lost, the map didn't help much either and i found myself going round in circles a lot. Didn't enjoy the storyline much but the graphics were ok and the game was very short.

It simply wasn't enjoyable to me.

Boring and Uninteresting
I didn't like this game at all and I explained why in my review that can be found in the CE section. So please refer to it if you wish to know the reasons for the low rating I have awarded this game, as posting the same review twice seems unecessary to me
But to sum up: the only one thing I really liked were the graphics. There are too many Fragmented Object Scenes, no exciting or novel task to perform and the puzzles I saw in the demo, although not devoid of originality, were far too simple for me. The rest doesn't justify a higher rating either. Well, at least in my opinion.

Another excellent game from Blue Tea,Loved everything about it, superb graphics, very sharp, voice overs, HOS, mini games really really good. Great story line and a very good ending, especially for a SE. Too many games end abruptly but with this one everything is explained. Well done to the developers and BF,a game to be played over and over again. Congrats all round.

Did not purchase
I am glad i tried the free download. This is my favorite type of game and I own plenty of them. The hints and map on this game are terrible. Restarted game three times trying to get shover to dig up the knife, thinking I was doing something wrong. Hint said to use shovel to get knife; when I tried, it said it did not work here. Don't waste your money. There are too many really good games.

To many hidden objects. Could use more puzzles.
Otherwise great game.

A Visual Feast
Another absolutely beautiful game by Blue Tea. The graphics are intricate and colorful, the music is unobtrusive and often quite lovely. The characters in the story--and there is a pretty good story--become more complex and interesting as the game progresses.
This is largely an adventure game with fragmented object scenes that construct lavishly beautiful items. There are a few hidden object scenes as well.
I loved the morphing objects, but be warned, they don't always appear the first time you visit a scene. You may have to return to a location later in the game to find them.
Although the game world is limited to one old theater, it's a big complex with lots of hallways, rooms, different levels, etc. so feels like a pretty big world.
I'm very experienced but not necessarily an expert and it took me four and a half hours of solid play, and it felt like I really got my money's worth and then some.
Kudos to the folks at Blue Tea Games. I can't wait for more games like this one, perhaps even a true adventure type?
