Amulet of Time Lately, I have found it difficult to get excited or drawn into a game enough to want to purchase it, or redeem a credit for it. The HO games are my favorite, but recent offerings seem repetitive, predictable, and put together hastily...for example, grainy graphics, irritating music or voice overs and not very challenging. This game was worth my credit. It reminded me slightly of a large file game, in a way, the way you are able to move about a space. The graphics and music were very good and the story line was more imaginative than I have seen for a long while. Inventory items were not obvious, and in order to complete a task, you had to work a little for the items you need. The puzzles were easy enough to figure out and the HO scenes provided a few challenges. I enjoyed this game and am glad it is in my collection, however I was disappointed that I was able to complete it in less than 4 hours. Finally, a good game that was not a pricey "collector's edition"! February 14, 2012
Travel To The 16th Century And Save The King! You are given an Amulet that allows you to travel back in time to the 16th Century to stop the conspiracy to poison King Henry II. The only way back however is to find all the pieces lost from this very same Amulet. I like the unusual aspects of this hidden object adventure where you search several rooms in order to find all the objects needed to progress. You can toggle between the objectives and inventories and I must admit that I used the hint button more than once to figure out which room to go to next. There are a lot of HOS and you may have to zoom into one section to do another HOS or even go to a different room to complete the task. Most of the mini games involve turning rings to complete a picture or untangling buttons attached to strings, none are difficult and most are fun. I liked the 16th century surroundings and the way that ghosts popped out of nowhere, enjoy! February 26, 2014
Excellent puzzle/adventure game with some hidden object stuff. Though heavier on the puzzle/adventure end of games than the hidden-object end, this is a really fun game. The visuals are really excellent--some eerie cutscenes that do a good job of setting tone and a sense of urgency, gorgeously painted scenes and objects, and lovely Renaissance artwork. The music is also lovely. This isn't a 100% historical game, obviously, but it's a really nice change of pace and obviously the designers put a lot of work into evoking the feel of 16th-century France. The storyline is a fairly standard one, but with a bit of a twist--instead of being the sister/wife/child/parent of a person in danger, you are a young modern woman who gets teleported back in time to help prevent an assassination. At nearly every turn you are frustrated and taunted by ghosts and mysteriously malevolent clowns. One thing I really liked about this game was the heroine's clearly palpable sense of aggravation that despite all the danger she's in and all the trouble she's going to, she has absolutely no stake whatsoever in what's going on. The storytelling was simply superb and kept me immersed and interested even though I don't normally play games this heavy on puzzle/adventures. The HOGs are beautiful and easy enough, with thematic screens and few anachronisms or out-of-place stuff (for example, stuff in the kitchen is largely stuff I'd expect to find in a Renaissance kitchen). I was quite pleased by one touch that few HOGs bother with: in this game, as opposed to most HOGs, when you do return to a previous screen for more treasure-hunting, the screen is exactly as you left it. Most HOGs will re-load stuff into the screen, and I find that approach frustrating as it feels like my previous efforts were negated. It takes a bit more work to make screens thematic yet non-frustrating, and that this game took that effort speaks well of it. The puzzles tended toward the intermediate to challenging, but the skip button populates pretty quickly so when one proved too frustrating, I could just get past it. I'm sort of an idiot when it comes to puzzle games, but the help button actually was pretty useful to help me navigate around. Overall recommend to those who like puzzle/adventure games and those who like more historical games. Those who are very new to HOGs or prefer straight HOG action might not like this as much, but try the demo! I did and was pleasantly surprised. (A truly cute touch at the end involves the credits--many of the people who worked on the game show up dressed in costumes of the game's era! TOO cute.) October 7, 2012
Excellent graphics Based only on the demo. Graphics excellent. One of the best games recently for this very thing. Loved the people walking about as you were looking for inventory items and HO scenes. Just a little too easy for me in regular mode so may be better in advanced. HO scenes beautifully presented. No interaction though. Good game for someone new to the genre as another reviewer mentioned. February 16, 2012
Heads Up! This is a great game; however, if you are prone to physical reactions when startled (I have heart palpitations) you might venture through the scenes prepared for screen flashes. March 27, 2012
Progressive Fun This game was a lot of fun. Not normally up my alley, I don't usually like a lot of hidden searches and this game has a lot of them, BUT they were well integrated with the story and over playing, it got more and more fun. I enjoyed it. February 19, 2012
Time Travel to a Solve the Mystery It played a little slow on my pc, so I didn't get to enjoy it as much as I would have liked to. However the time I did put into it was well worth it. The graphics are amazingly real. I like the travel back in time concept. The story keeps you wanting more. I thought the the hidden picture scenes were a little easier than what I am used to but are easy on the eyes. In other words they are not to dark and I didn't find myself guessing at what something might be. There are interesting surprises here and there when you click on certain objects in the scenes.

NOT A BAD SE GAME I liked this game,but not as much as a ce game. I wasn't engrossed for an hour, but frustrated. I didn't know where to go or what to do. Luckily, the hint system helped. However, I give it four stars, as it is okay for one credit. February 15, 2012
for pure HOG fans This game has a lot going for it - a great story, beautiful art, good sounds. In a few places, there are some good jump-in-your-seat creepy moments. I love the Steampunk-esque art in the intro and the idea of going through time. I especially liked the 360 degree views of the rooms. Lovely! Unfortunately, I'm not a HOG fan, and this is almost entirely HO scenes. Very well-done, beautifully detailed, generally relevant HO scenes. Usually, I can deal with the HO scenes to get to the adventure parts that I enjoy - especially when they are done as well as these - but in this case, it's just too many of them. This isn't for me, but I'd recommend it to every HOG fan in a heartbeat. February 15, 2012
h.o.g. heaven.. well usually i dont like hog's at every turn, (two in one scene? really?# but this game's graphics made up for that, #loved the ghosts and things popping out at you)..and the hog's were sooo easy, i got around it soon enough and played on. very nice little game :) February 16, 2012
