Twisted Lands: Insomniac
EXCITING GAME, BUT LOTS OF BACK AND FORTH
RATING IS BASED ON COMPLETED GAME IN EXPERT MODE
REALLY WOULD GIVE 4.5
If you like an exciting story, this game is for you. Full of drama, plot twists and intrigue.
Excellent and original story line
Plot keeps you moving to see what happens next
Good graphics which vary in color and atmosphere
Many different scenes, environments and scenery
Exciting music which adds to the intrigue
HOS are not junk piles
Games are easy to medium, all doable
Cut scenes are sudden, dramatic and surprising
Pretty easy to figure out where to go next so you won't get stuck
Did not need to use the hint button at all
Journal that keeps the details that help you along
Felt like being immersed in a movie
LOTS of backtracking
No map (at least not in expert mode)
This game was an excellent adventure that I would recommend to everyone who wants to have some intelligent fun.

Really enjoyed this game! Loved the graphics, and the interesting puzzles. The game was well done visually, I really enjoyed finding the hidden objects as well.

Almost didn't buy, glad I did.
This is a sequel. I haven't played the first game.
It's a really good game but I almost didn't purchase it. Visual/sound quality is excellent. Great cut-scenes - it's very much an interactive story and draws you in. However I have a lot of unfinished games right now that are also fun. I was playing on casual mode and didn't like the sparkles and thought, if only you could change difficulty part-way through... then I opened the menu to quit and saw the option to change difficulty and bought it right away.
It's little details like that which put this experience above similar high-quality games.
Don't be put off by the escape-the-asylum theme. It's done right for a change and you feel empathy with your protagonist and actually care about the story more than usual.

Good story: dream or reality?
I really liked the storyline. You try to escape from a hospital. In the end, it's hard to know what is dream and what reality. It's really interesting!
I played in expert mode (sparkles only for HOS)
- The sound and music are good.
- The graphics are crisp. The objects from the HOS are easy to find.
- There are 15 photos to find.
- The puzzles are quite easy.
- The journal is very helpful, since you have all the clues you get in it.
- There is no map and a lot of going back and forth, but the locations are easy to find.
It took me 2 hours to finish. Quite short, but worth the money!

Is It Real or Is It a Delusion - Who Knows?
This is the story of a young woman who finds herself in a psychiatric ward, her attempts to escape and to find out what happened to 15 school children who have disappeared. It's hard to know if she is in reality or in a delusional state; over and over she solves part of the mystery only to find herself back in the psych unit. Or is she really back? What is reality and what is delusion and does it even matter?
I haven't played the first game but I still highly recommend this one. The storyline is gripping, the graphics are great, the HOS are fairly simple and the minigames aren't impossible to finish (and can be skipped#. There is a hint button which will guide the player #I used it a lot as sometimes there are several directions one can go#. There is also a journal in which important information #such as secret codes and combinations) is easily accessed. After awhile I found myself wanting so much just to know what was going to happen next. I could identify with Angel; her story is that gripping. Does the ending make sense? I'll leave that decision up to you. In my case I'm not sure if the game is even over.
Others have recommended that the first game be played before this one. I wish I had read the reviews and had done that. I'll be sure to play the first game very soon. I hope there is a sequel to the second game. I'm sorry the game ended. But maybe it hasn't. Who knows?

Twisted Land: Insomniacs
What a great game. You have to play Twisted Land: Shadow Town first to understand the storyline but what a treat.
The graphics are very good, the mini-games are easy to moderate. Nothing to cut your hair in half. There is not a lot of voice over. The hint button is very usefull to direct you and bonus you do not loose a hint by doing so.The hint recharged in about 45 seconds. You have also a notebook who help you with the story and the puzzle.
I really reccommend this game. One of the best for me.

Great logic and game flow. I never used the hint button. HOS were easy, and only to gain objects you needed in the game. The story is a little dark, but I was totally involved for the entire game. Nothing was too hard nor too easy, just an overall relaxing, long game. I can hardly wait for a third Twisted Lands ...

Intriguing hidden object game
It wasn't too hard nor too easy, it kept me on my toes and finally had to go to the walk through to advance. This is the kind of hidden object game I like. Worth paying for.
