Fantastic Creations: House of Brass Collector's Edition
What can I say?
Great overall game. I didn't have to use the strategy guide because the hint was so helpful. If you love the mini games, you'll love the bonus features in this game

Good game but too short even with the bonus content
This was a very cool game. Nice and original twists on the standard hidden objects portions. A lot of pipe puzzles, circuit puzzles and ring matching puzzles, all of which I enjoy. Excellent music. Great artwork.
So why only 3 stars? It's too short for a $13.99 game. Even with the bonus content included there is probably only about 3-4 hours worth of play in the game. For a game that really doesn't offer any incentive to play it again once you have gone through it the first time, that seems like a poor value. There are $1.99 games in the App Store that have longer play value with the same level of quality.
It's a lot of fun while it lasts. It just doesn't last very long. There are games of equal quality, but much more to do and see. I just can't recommend spending $13.99 on this or $6.99 when the regular version comes out.

Beautiful Puzzle/HOS game
Based on the demo. Although this game was released several months ago for PC's, it was just released today for Mac's. This game has beautiful graphics, Crisp and sharp in most places, but blurry in the HOS. And there are good puzzles, which range from easy to moderately challenging. The audio is good, except for the music, which I didn't like. The voices and ambient sounds are very good. The storyline is an old, familiar one- jealousy- and it's presented as a mix of 1970's science fiction, gothic mystery, and Twilight Zone; in a huge, deep home made out of brass.

This game is pretty awesome. It's very different than most of the ones I have played. The mini games are challenging but possible to figure out. It took me some time on a couple of them but a challenge is good. I liked the graphics and the music went with the scene so it was good. Unique game.

What a game!
I am heartbroken that I have finished this game. It is truly one of the best of this genre that I have played. The artwork is beautiful, the voice-overs are excellent, and the story line is great.
The mini-games are WAY above average. Hard enough to be challenging, but solvable without making yourself crazy. They're also more creative than you typically find. HO games where you find cylinders or squares, and a bigger variety than usual without the heavy dependency on one or two types of puzzle that I frequently skip.
I hope they're working hard on another game like this! I can't wait for the next one.
