Nemo's Secret: Vulcania
FUN AND ENTERTAINING!!!
I was cut short on my demo time - my fault only - but the parts that I did get to play were entertaining. The graphics were good except that some of the hidden object scenes were a little grainy, but the HOs tested your abilities. The music was fine and the voice overs were good. Where you had to go was easy to follow making going back and forth pleasant and not a chore as in other games. This is a definite buy for me.

What a great game!!
Puzzles and HO scenes and things to find in between, it's just endless!!
HO scenes are challenging, not because they're dark or tiny, but because you need to LOOK! Also interactive with some items hidden, but these are shown in green, which I like because I find all the other things first then "open a draw" or pull a curtain" to find the rest. Also, not all objects to be found are shown at once, so a good memory speeds the finding.
Music is nice and varied and unobtrusive, so have been able to leave it on, always a bonus.
Helpful hint system too when used outside of HO scenes.
Not too much running back and forth, and new locations open up just at the right time to prevent "scene boredom".
Haven't finished yet, will be quite a long time before I reach that goal and am enjoying the challenge. A LONG game.

This has to be one of the most beautiful games ever. The graphics are simply stunning. The mini games are very simple, but who cares it is well worth the money for the graphics alone - especially on a Bonus Weekend.

Great Game - Lots of movement
This game was exceptional. I enjoyed playing it and the storyline was better than others.
The graphics were above average and sound as well.
The HOSs and puzzles were challenging.
I would definitely encourage you to try this one!

Found this to be a challange to play and it didn't just take one hour to finish.

One of Those Games That Keep You Coming Back Until You Win!
Played on the most difficult level, it was challenging, with difficult puzzles. The hidden object puzzles weren't the typical 'find everything immediately'. This is a good one.

Trickyy, twisty fun!
Really enjoyed this, in fact I want to buy it, but I have about 15 games I have bought and haven't played yet, gosh I need to stop buying for a while.
Anyway, I love the way the hidden objects are, when you finish finding the things on the list, you then have to do something to find what you are getting for solving the hidden object scene. I like those things a lot. Not the same old find all the stuff and here is what you got.
Don't use sound, but thought the graphics were good. There were some dark areas, but I find that if you just move your cursor up, down, and sideways, you will find what ever you were supposed to find.
The story seems alright to me, I enjoyed reading the journal. And the little spider robots, I wish we were able to bop them with a club each time they come around. Be proactive in the war! All in all ya'll, I really liked the game and if you are a true hidden object player, I think you will like it too!

I've played so many games in, the last couple of years. So I keep up with the new ones for sure. After so long done a lot. I always see any I missed. Like this one. Visual and sound great. Ho's beautiful clear and you get one another in it's place. I love that. So you have more to find. More developers, should do that. Just a great game.

This review is on the finished game. I wasn't sure at first how I would feel about playing this game but once I got into it I fell in love with it. I found it to be a lot of fun with many challenges and a fair amount of HOS. Visually I wish it had been less grainy but it never takes away from the game play or the storyline which flows. It took me several hours to finish due to some of the challenges. A great game that I highly recommend.
