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!

Twisted Lands: insomniac
Ok, another hospital, patient, story. When can we get fresh new idea here?? But luckily this game is about Angel, the protagonist of the first series of Twisted Lands. I love that the storyline is nice, it flows great, there is backtracking but not as many as the first one. Try playing the Shadow Town before this one as the story connects together.

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.

Fun but Confusing
Great hint system and guide but I still did not know what was going on. I played the first game but it did not make much of an impression and made this one confusing. Loved the HOS and the puzzles. I liked that the journal kept track of necessary info to solve puzzles. The game length seemed short but fun game.

OK but not wonderful
I played the first Twisted Lands game Shadow Town recently and it seems to me that the creators were using up scenes they had already prepared for that game to make an easy sequel. Puzzles were too easy for me. And what sort of education have they had - "you digged the treasure up"?! "Make you loose your breath" instead of "lose"?! If English language and grammar is not their thing, why don't they get someone to cast an expert eye over their texts? Sorry to be the only negative voice. I would buy this game as a Daily Deal but it's not worth the full amount IMO, although I had already bought it based on the other reviews.
