Resurrection, New Mexico
This is a nice, but average HO game. The story line is somewhat novel and intriguing, and it is nice to have a game that does not take place in a creepy old mansion, or have lots of blood and gore. HO scenes lead to finding necessary objects that move the game forward, which I always like, but they are straight forward, and I like when some objects must be altered by other objects first, such as finding the knife to slice open the apple, to get apple seeds. Also, the playing environment is rather small. Because there is a lot of returning to places, sometimes that is a plus, but I prefer moving on to fresh new places with fresh new graphics. There are a few mini puzzles of average difficulty, but most are familiar ones like picking locks or placing gears, There is a simple logic puzzle that I have not seen before, but it could have been a bit more challenging. The graphics are a bit grainy and more like drawings than crisp, lifelike images. This makes the HO scenes more difficult, but in a frustrating way, rather than in a challenging way. Overall, I liked the game because the story line and setting were refreshing to me, but I think they made a good game when they could have made a great one.

Decent, But Not One I'd Spend Money On!
Pretty good graphics, clear, well designed and modern.
A great storyline; very unique, interesting and hooks you in. Would've been better with voice-overs.
Hint recharges fast
Like I mentioned before. I would've liked to have had some voiceovers in the game.
There should've been a few puzzles at least.
The game really needs a strategy guide. I spent ages figuring out what to do next and always needed to use the hint.
I didn't like the Hidden Object Scenes that much. The objects were too hard to find and I'd always use the hint.
Overall, a decent game, but not one that's going to have me rushing to get out the credit card. Download the trial and see what you think.

Everything was just average. No puzzles to speak of. Mostly HOS. They were straight forward and OK. Nothing really to say except it was OK.

Not as good as I expected
This game was just ok for me. The hidden object games were done well, but the story line and fun factor were lacking for me. It was one of those back-and-forth, go-here-go-there and go back there again games that gets tiresome.

Hidden Objects a nightmare
HOS scenes are poorly drawn with translation problems at times. Unsatisfactory ending.
One of the most disappointing I have played

After reading the reviews, I was set for a great game. However, this game just didn't appeal to me. I loved the creepiness, but that was about all. HO scenes were easy. Puzzles were straightforward. I just couldn't get into the whole story. The scenery did nothing for me. Do trial the game. You may just love it :)

definitely play the trial first
I gave this a try, I'm not a fan of things jumping out at me so that dissuaded me right away. I played some more to see if it was worthy of a daily deal but the HO scenes were what finally turned me away.
The music is nice, reminded me of Santana, and the storyline seemed interesting. The graphics weren't horrible but the HO scenes were grainy and there were so many of them! The interesting storyline came to a standstill because I was stuck doing one HO scene after another with very little in between.

Made A Mistake Again!!!
I surly hope, to get my money back. Nothing and I mean nothing going for it. Story line none. It's creepy and I don't mean in, a good way. Music awful as well. I got a headache staring on the ho's. Anyone who bought this game, is not in tune with, the gem of games on Big Fish. I have been playing for years. Played them all. Just ran out, and took a chance. Sorry me.

I didn't even play through the trial. The HOG's are too frequent and too time consuming. Music is awful and the graphics are fair at best. I don't like these types of games where you feel like your playing in a garbage dump.
I tried this game because the reviews seemed good. So my review is my personal preference. Since the game is at regular price it's worth a try.
