Otherworld: Spring of Shadows
My first hidden object game on here. Some levels were pretty challenging, others really easy. Found the storyline a bit short though. Still a nice game.

I really enjoyed this game. My only complaint is that it started out great, but kind of went downhill somewhat in the last three levels. If there had been as much thought put into the last three levels as the first couple, this would have been a really outstanding game.

Good but could have been better
I just finished playing otherworld spring of shadows and I was very impressed by the scenes, they were beautiful. I also like the mini games but I would have liked some more HO scenes. Overall the game was a fun way to pass time, however I couldn't get past the narrators voice! It was an awful accent and it ruined the fairytale aspect for me.

I really liked the graphics in this game, very pleasing to the eye. HOS not too challenging, so if you want something more difficult, then this game might not be for you. Overall for myself, I found this game to be at a perfect level - enough of a challenge without being too difficult.

Hours of fun
I wasn't sure I would like this game when I bought it but I'm thrilled I finally played. At the start, I was struck by the soft, bright colour scheme. And although Otherworld is darker it is just as brilliant. You meet several unique characters along the way that really make you feel part of the story. HOS varied a little in style and were quite short and simple. Full of mini-games and puzzles that were fun and not mind-bending. However, some did become a bit repetitive. A map is eventually provided that lets you jump to certain scenes but was minimally helpful with game play. Although, there's not too much walking in each area. The Hint states your next move if needed and even aids with puzzles. I thought this game was creative and entertaining. I enjoyed the variety of locations and characters. And don't forget to collect the Fairies. Nice and long. .

Difficult at first, but got the hang of it!
This game has ok visuals but it lacked at some parts. What I liked about it was the puzzles and storyline. The HO was hard to find, but the puzzles were ok. It wasn't as spooky as I thought it was gonna be, but it was decent. I recommend this game for adults only.

I've played many HOG so it's tough to find one that impresses me as different but this one certainly did. I looked forward to each hidden object scene to see how creative the setup of objects would be. I loved that some were pairing of similar objects, others were matching, some had puzzles that needed solving before finding objects, and many other varieties. The graphics were very pretty and I thought the clarity of objects was good--although there are always a few that need hints but what fun would it be if every object was easy to find?
The other puzzles in the game were enjoyable but there were far too many of them. The "help" feature was no help at all really so I ended up skipping about half. Needless to say, I was quite surprised when I got a message midway through the game that I received an award for completely some 80 puzzles (not sure if that was the exact number but it was up there!) They were fun in the beginning but I eventually just thought, "for crying out loud, please just let me get this needed object without having to solve a puzzle first!"
The hint button was useless as far as I'm concerned outside of the hidden object scenes so I had to consult the walkthrough each time I was confused about what to do. Most of the time the hint button just repeated what I already knew. Yes, I know I am supposed to find wood but I needed you to give me an idea of where the wood was!!
The game did last a long time--I thought it would go on forever. I can't really comment on the story as I didn't keep up with it, losing interest midway as often happens with me. The only other thing that I didn't care for (and is an unfortunate feature of many games ) was the "spanking" you got when you clicked too much on incorrect objects. Exact precision was needed on most of these items which was a bit of a challenge, (if you were picking up a toothpick or similar tiny object you had to point DIRECTLY on the toothpick and sometimes not even the ends of it) so misclicks happened a lot. Even if I deliberately clicked around, if that's how I want to play the game, so be it. I don't need to be punished for it.
Overall, a refreshing change from the usual and well worth the price. Thanks bigfish for thinking outside of the box on this one.

This was a fun cute game. I get so tired of the doom and gloom games and enjoy it when I get to play a game with some color.
