Timeless: The Forgotten Town
The production of this game is barely OK. Poor artwork. Poor character representations. Some technical problems where the game quits working. Game play is mostly OK, with some dumb items that have to be collected with a ball and hourglass, and these are spread around. Some items needed are in plain sight, but you can't pick them up until later - dumb. HOS are, again, mostly OK as are the puzzles. The story is poor and poorly told. I don't recommmend this game unless at a bargain price.

I just did not care for the game

Too Many Poorly Drawn Hidden Object Scenes
I'm not sure why this game got such rave reviews, but I couldn't force myself to finish the 60 minute trial period.
The storyline seemed intriguing, but it gets lost in all the hidden object scenes. There's one everytime you turn around. And a lot of the objects are not well drawn, which made it doubly frustrating for me.
Another downer was the fact that you cannot skip the puzzles -- you have to suffer through them or consult a walkthrough. Sorry, but if "lock-picking" puzzles are not my favorite, I should have the option of skipping them.
And the fact that most of the reviewers here complained about the lousy ending, was the final reason I quit playing. There's nothing worse than getting all involved in a story and investing hours of gameplay, only to find the ending abrupt or ill-fitting.
I don't recommend this game unless all you care about is the hidden object aspect.

hate having to wait.......
to pick up objects!!! backtracking to pick up an object until i find i need to use it....... no, not for me. there's no reason i shouldn't be able to pick it up when i find it! that really gets on my nerves. just saying.
