Vacation Quest: Australia
Fantasic Hidden Object Game
Great game, but need to get the Aussie language right.

A Great Audio and Video Retreat Game!
I so very much enjoyed this game! It is "old school" hidden object, with bonus feature games: Match 3 and Unlimited HOS scenes. The video art is very well done, and the music is relaxing enough to lull you to sleep, if that is what you like at the end of a long day. The "facts" about Australia are pretty neat, as far as info goes. Buy this game, if you have not already!

Yay! Another "Vacation Quest"
When the stress of spooky mansions, missing relatives and creepy asylums gets to me I love to kick back and go on vacation with a lush beautiful "Vacation Quest" game. Simple and satisfying. Sun and fun is a great antidote to the gray winter days!

Pop Cap does it again!
This game is one of the most enjoyable that I've ever played. If you want a game that's a straightforward HO - then this is the game for you. Along the way you'll also pick up interesting titbits about Australia. Even the music gets you in the mood for travelling down under!

I like this trial. Have a few questions. Are there any hints? Is there a full screen mode which shows the menu button and hint button?
I really dislike the HOG's that require you to refer to a blog or strategy guide everytime you make a move. If I ever see a 'check out the blog' or 'integrated strategy guide' in the description, I just bypass the game.

...make this an enjoyable game. I hate, hate tiny objects, dark objects, and poorly drawn objects -- none of which you will find here. A cracker looks like a cracker. Only in the game it's called a wafer. I enjoyed learning other Australian slang as well, including "giving someone a bell" for giving someone a call. Lots of interesting hidden object scenes. While each search list has only 10 items, one is a mini to-do activity. None are hard. And if you choose unlimited hints in Options, you don't even have to wait for the hints to reload. A happy-go-lucky game that fits the scenery. Good for kids and a great first hidden object game for HO newbies. I even thought the mini-games were pretty good.

Straightforward HOG Fun
Bright, sunny, colorful hunt for Aussie related HOs. No searching for bits ands pieces of things in creepy dark dungeons. As with the other VactionQuests find the bonus objects (boomerangs) and extend your game. It is nice to get back to basics with great graphics, sound and no intricate stumbling blocks to forward progression. I recommend this one. . I purchase all the Vacation Quests, Mystery P.I.s, Big City Adventures and Escapes. .they are all about great presentation of HOs.

This is a HO game with mini games but no storyline. It also has 3 hidden boomerangs in each scene and as you find them it unlocks new levels - extended vacation. This game is very simple but soooooo relaxing. The music is great and goes perfect with the "vacation" setting of this game.

Standard Hidden Object Game
When I need a brain rest from the ghost and gore games and just need some relaxing mindless fun,I will choose one like this..The graphics are always good in the series and you won't need a magnifying glass to find anything..I noticed that they now offer round puzzles in their mini-games which is a nice touch for something different.There are no voice overs or scripts to read,just different hidden object scenes with a mini-game in between.You earn extra scenes by finding 50 boomerangs..When done there is a blitz round.

Finally one for the rest of us who don't like complicated or dark!!
Finally one that isn't so hard it needs guide or is too dark and depressing. Just show me the room and the objects. Forget the moving from area to area, move this move that etc. Vacation Quest, Big City Adventures, Mystery PI Rock!!!! Bring more on and also add them to the ipad!!!!!!!!!!
