The Agency of Anomalies: Cinderstone Orphanage Collector's Edition
Good Plain Fun
This is a fantastic game. All the things you look for, great graphics, story, sound. That being said, I was a bit disappointed in the challenge level. Puzzles were way too easy (I played advanced mode), & HOGS were typical. I enjoyed the varied scenes, but expected more of them for it being a CE.

Over all this is a very good game, love the bright colors, and the challenging mini games. But....I have tried to play this game 4 times through out. I sign in on my name play game. When i exit and come back..it starts the game all over. It has never saved my progress. Very annoying. Has anyone had this experience? I would love to finish the game.

Predictable but fun!
Had a fun time with this game, nice twist at the end. Story line was a little predictable but who doesn't want to save little orphan children? Graphic were nice and minigames were fun.

A "cinder"ella story!
Overall I thought the game was challenging. Loved the HOS, different. The powers were a definite new twist & added to the game. The story line, although novel, was a little sketchy at the end. I will play it again, if only to see if I missed something there in the end.

The Agency Of Anomalies.Cinderstone
The game was way to short. I did however play on easy mode but didnt need hints. If the game was longer I would have given 5 stars,but when you are paying the collectors price I think the game should be longer

Fun way to spend a snowed-in weekend
The game was interesting, most of the mini games were easy enough to do without hints. The graphics were great as well as the audio. The story was pretty basic, "save the children, be a hero". There was a little too much running back and forth for me, but overall it was worth buying.

Sequel falls short
I'm not quite sure how to rate this one. I have the first game and enjoyed it, so I was expecting something similar but better. It is quite different. Somehow light rather than dark storywise. You are sent to a paranormal school to see what has happened to the teacher and her young students.
The graphics are nice, clear and bright, for a place that was destroyed by fire. I thought the cutscenes were really good, grainy and dark. The voice overs are pretty good as well. The music was awful (seemed cheerful to me), I finally turned it off. It has 2 modes of play, and there are 5 chapters plus the bonus.
The HOs were the standard junkpile with some interaction, but they were bright and crisp for the most part. In some HOs you replace the items. The puzzles were rather easy but not bad. There are 33 postcards to collect. You also get the abilities of those you save and you collect achievements. The devs seemed to want to appeal to everyone with a little of this and a little of that. Even with all that I would consider this game an HO with some adventure.
The play was good, although it seemed a little...incomplete. There were a lot of scenes visited at least 10 which seems like a lot, but maybe that's because there wasn't a lot to do in each.
I did finish the demo in about 35 minutes so for me the length isn't worth the CE price. I may buy the SE when it is available.
I am recommending the game because it was fairly interesting play, but this is only based on the demo.
