Death Under Tuscan Skies: A Dana Knightstone Novel
I just got boored
I tried to like this but it is slow and the music puts you to sleep. No voice over and the hint button is really not much good to me. Tell you where to go but you have to remember where that place is. Most of the puzzles are easy and the HOS are also not hard and different. Just better games out there.

A little too easy but beautiful to look at
Another lovely game from Boomzap & there are achievements to collect to add interest. There are no voiceovers except in the cut scenes but the dialogue is clickable & the piano score is not very memorable.
The graphics are clear & the artwork nicely drawn, a lovely hint at how beautiful Tuscany is. There are two modes, casual with a 60 second hint recharge & advances with a 2 min hint and joy of joys no sparkles at all. I advise playing on advanced mode as this is a very easy game, I even managed to complete all the mini puzzles without using the skip button which is very unusual. These are pretty varied & I enjoyed playing them, there were not many hidden object scenes.
You get a journal with the story & clues, a character list & you can replay the cut scenes. There is a task list if you lose track of what you are doing & the hint button is very helpful.
Took me about 3-1/2 hours; I did not rush as the scenes were well worth exploring, the ending was definitely happy & satisfying.

Beautiful Game for Romance Novel Lovers
Bright and beautiful scenes--finally! Music very soothing and matches environment. Puzzles to do and clues to find then follow in order to progress. Played demo. Did not purchase as I prefer more challenge and faster pace.Romance novel readers would enjoy this game!!!

I could not sustain any interest
I know alot of people really liked this game but I've bought it and tried to finish it 3 times but just could not sustain any interest in the gameplay or story line.
Plus the graphics, in parts of the game, have an unfinished line drawing quality that is distracting.
Just not my cuppa and I'm sorry I bought it.

Not Entertaining Enough
I found this game boring and irritating. I couldn't the book twinkling every time I completed something. The story line was boring to me. I enjoyed have a goal tracker to remind me what I was looking for. The graphics are nice and the actual hidden object games were nice but not enough of them. I didn't care having to go to one destination, turn around and go all the back to another destination just to find 1 or 2 things, then have to go all the way back to the destination I had just come from. I did like the mini games. To me, those were the most entertaining parts of the game. I liked the unlimited hint button. That will be nice for newbie HOG players. I'd recommend this game because it has a lot of things HOG players like but it didn't satisfy my tastes. Deleted after playing it.

Not so good
This game just did not flow smooth for me and was not exciting in any sense.

Death Under Tuscan Skies
I was really disappointed in this game. While the graphics were adequate, the music would put me to sleep. Music plays a huge part in my enjoyment of any game. Nothing new to see here, no excitement. I plodded through it and was glad to see it end, even though you knew what would happen from the beginning. Romance novel enthusiasts might enjoy this game.

Nice enough graphics but where are the HOS? This is an easy game with one puzzle following after another. I wouldn't play this game if it was free.

This is not a hidden object game it is a puzzle game and should be put under that catergory. Very disappointed in the game.
