Natural Threat: Ominous Shores
This one builds up...
I love the way this game starts easy, and really builds to a cool climax! I loved it. Graphics are awesome without being overdone, nice and quiet and so relaxing, then exciting! Good story, no voice overs, but with this one I didn't mind, it fit the game. It has lots of levels. It does not have the 3 levels of difficulty, but it does allow you to skip the hints that it offers. I loved it....

Great game for beginners
This is a fun game. It is definitely a beginner to intermediate level. It has lots of onscreen hints. Interesting story line but it gets rather bizarre near the end. It does a good job of combining the decrepit old building setting with a lush tropical forest. HOS are large enough to see and puzzles are fun but not overly challenging. I would recommend this game.

no, i don't want to be spanked
one thing I didn't see in every game I plaid for a long time was the "make a child in the corner"
so, they still do this thing, when you make a mistake because you click randomly, they punish you!
no, not for me!

Now that it's fixed, a great game.
After being frustrated in not being able to complete the game, it was a joy to see it fixed and able to finish. The visual/sound was great. Good challenge but not overly so. Storyline was great and left it with a possible sequel in the works. What happened to the girl??? All in all, a good game to play on a rainy week-end or a sunny week-end or because it is one that you can't stop playing until you get to the end.

Interesting and Intriguing
I actually enjoyed playing this game; the only downfall was sometimes you had to travel back and forth a fair bit to meet the goals; otherwise darned good. Thx!

An unexpected change.
I started playing the demo with the delight of the wonderfrul graphics, the story line and the nice music. Everything was going great until there was an unexpected change right in the middle of the game. It switched the story. For me it was too jarring to continue and lost interest in the game. Maybe for you it will be different, try the demo out.

Engaging, Creepy, and Great Value
This is a dark, creepy little number with plenty of various, not-too-difficult mini games. Decent length of game play for the money; better than most. Engaging story. Good art work and sound. Two things kept me from awarding this game 5 stars: 1) I always turn off the music. In this game there isn't much music and the music control actually controls the ambient sound, which I didn't figure out until I'd played the entire game. So I unknowingly turned off the ambient sounds, which would have made the game play much better. 2) There's way too much back-and-forth, especially at the end of the game. An interactive map would have been very beneficial!

Fun and Different
I wanted more bugs! Seriously, this one is a nice change of pace. The story was unique, the mini-games were fun, the length was about right, and it kept me interested. Hints are very helpful.

Excellent mystical HOG game
It was so much fun to play this game, not just because the great little puzzle thing that you must do just to advance in the game, but it has an excellent "spooky" story line. I really appreciate the hot spots light effect which appear when you point at them, it a really nice futurism thing. The game doesn't have so many hidden object searching scene so the story can fluently flow. The only, not that positive thing is that the cut-scenes level of quality is not the best one but if you are focusing on the whole game, than that can't be a decisive element.

Value for money
Got a good few hours of gameplay from this one - pretty easy yes. Bit annoying at the end when you had to keep going back & forth getting the rescue bits. Saw at the end the girl looking at her arm which was turning green??? Presume there may be a 2 sometime. However I did wonder at the lock on the title screen. Came back to the website to see if there has been a collectors one which there hasn't so how do I unlock it?
