Resurrection, New Mexico
Good game overall!
I enjoyed the storyline though it did have some flaws.
- Setting and atmosphere
- Music and sound effects were pretty nice
- Fun to play
- No voice-acting at all. Not a deal breaker, but disappointing.
- Some of the objects in the H0 scenes are a little blurry or not clearly defined so it was hard to find things sometimes, especially in scenes that are more "landscape."
- Story seemed to rush a little and lacked some explanations behind a few of the characters' motivation and the ending was a little abrupt with no epilogue. It would have been nice to see what the main character's feelings were after resolving the situation. (I'd elaborate, but I don't want to spoil anything!)
Despite some of the flaws, I still enjoyed the setting and overall story. I would have liked more story depth and for the game not to feel so rushed toward the end. If you don't like snakes, bats, rats or bugs, I would recommend avoiding this as they pop up often and sometimes abruptly to fill up the screen. Other than that, download the trial and give this a go.. I found it very enjoyable!

Overall fun game
It was different, I do like the ones where you don't get everything in one place.

Resurrection, New Mexico
I really enjoyed this game. The puzzles weren't overly difficult, there wasn' a huge amount of areas you had to keep going back to over and over.

Lots of fun
Much better than I expected. Challenging games, loved the interaction and story line.

Quite addictive but has you running allover the place like so many other games. Didn't spoil my enjoyment too much.

Surprisingly FUN...but short
Played Full game
Review more for expert players
There was no hard mode
Ok, fellow pond dwellers I need to tell you right off the bat that this game is SHORT. I have been playing adventure and HO games for years and I think if you are an expert player you too will find it lacking .... BUT don't let that turn you away just yet!
Lets get the usual stuff out of the way first-
No glitches, ran fine on my PC .
Music was good but, a little repetitious
No voice overs, just text to read from the people you meet
Graphics are clear and textured but could look dated on some scenes
It's the usual Mommy needs to get to kid theme (ho -hum)
Easy to intermediate puzzles
Ok, now that's out of the way...I liked this game!
The game play was fun and I wanted to keep playing for a change and see what happened to my character. You are basically in purgatory and need to help some other souls find redemption and in the process get yourself back to the real world. Don't get me wrong there is no award for writing here as you will pretty much know how the story line would go, but it was interesting to see how it would play out. The puzzles, unfortunately were on the easy side. During game play you do need to stay on your toes, because some actions and hidden objects scenes do not become active until after you find the object you will need. So you will need to travel back a bit at times, but it is with a purpose. Some items you collect in your inventory will need to be combined, BUT the game does not tell you that, you have to figure it out yourself. One drawback for me are the sparkles, you could not turn them off, but they did not sparkle for everything only certain items. It was not consistent.
Expert players should find the game has a few things that are interesting, the plot moves well and you have things to do that make sense. I do not think you are going to find any real challenges here but it is an interesting little game. I did enjoy the game play, even if it was too short. Give the demo a try.

very nice game
enjoyed the story , hos were good , the graphics left a bit to be desired , the back and forth to find items was about right , you didn't have to go back umpteen different times. definitely a keeper

I read the other reviews and tried it. Decided to go ahead and buy it. I was really hooked and finished it. I loved the storyline and this game was jammed packed with twists and turns, the only reasons I didn't give five star is I'm very picky about music and it was alright but didn't grab me, the hos could've been better but they were challenging I just think graphics weren't as good as they could be. All in all I really enjoyed this game and I think I'll buy the ce so I can get the bonus play

A really good game
I would of given 5 stars but the sound in this game is really annoying!
First off if you feeling confused at the start of this game it's because your just hanging on and your not quiet dead yet! Resurrection is a place were lost souls go before you cross over (if you can let go off what your holding on too).Otherwise your in for the fight of your life and theres a sheriff in town who will stop at nothing to make sure you don't go anywhere!
As for the game play the hidden object scenes are hard and i don't like using the hint button but some items are really difficult to find. I had to use the hint button 3 times! However the bright side for all those who like to uses hint button it doesn't take very long to recharge.
The game length was a little short but all in all not a bad game!
