Depths of Betrayal
not impressed at all, hated the pop up circles to find things, i bought "treasure seekers" editions, with this kind of search and find, and i rarely play them.

Wow What a Game kept me thinging all the time

I am about half way through. Although the game is fairly short, it is really fun to play. It has some differences that make it fresh and entertaining. Not too hard. Just about perfect for me. Quality is far more important to me than quantity. Give it a try, bet you'll be hooked.

Fun and entertaining
As adventure fan that enjoys a great Adventure based HOG, I enjoyed this spin on a traditional Hidden Object. While the level of challenge was just OK. The game was genuinely fun and thoroughly enjoyable.

I really enjoyed this game
I love this type of hidden object game, and this was more challenging than ones I have played in the past. Good story line. I have played it twice already!

a really fun game
i really, really liked this game. it wasn't as much HO as finding various objects to get the one that you need. haven't done one of those in a while so it was a nice change. played casual, no sound. hint/skip charge fast. journal. hints tell you where to go. you are responding to a letter received and it is to help your uncle???. anyway, there is a man wanting to build robots with artificial intelligence. sequel, hard to say.

To be honest, I have never enjoyed playing games when those circles appear and I have to find the items to fit in them. I would not have even tried the demo if this game had not been a DD. I'm happy I tried the demo and I'm happy I purchased the game and I'm especially happy that I played the game and completed it.
This is not a difficult game. The Hint Button refills very quickly and when one is prompted to go to another area it does not count as a Hint. Hints are good; not just "there is nothing to be done here" - a practice some other devs seem to rely on. Items found for the circles sometimes show up in that area and fit right in and other times interact with an item in a different area or show up in a different area. So it is often interactive and I like that. One thing that impresses me is that it is so easy to place items in those circles. In some other games I have struggled to get them in in just the right way so they will be accepted. Not so in this game; they go right in with an audible "click." Picking up items is also easy; there is no "I've got to put the cursor on exactly the right spot or it won't be picked up." Game play is smooth.
The town in trouble is a fascinating place; not a normal town. I won't give away anything more than that except that thinking outside of the box is a good skill to have in this game. There is also humor. I especially liked interacting with the guards.
There is a journal which is quite helpful. A map would have helped simply because most of the areas started to look the same to me #probably because this is not a normal town# and I started getting confused about how to get back to an area I had just left a few minutes ago. That's just me; I don't know if others have that problem. The Hint Button led me back and so I did tend to rely on it more than I wanted.
I used the WT only once and then could have smacked myself. It was so OBVIOUS!!
Graphics are quite nice, clear and well-drawn. Somebody is very creative!
As for length, I would have liked it to be longer simply because I enjoyed it so much. If I had known it would be this good I would have considered the CE and I recommend checking the reviews for the CE and playing that demo.
Puzzles can be skipped and the wait is not too long although longer than the Hint Button refilling. I had to skip a couple of puzzles because I have problems with them due to some brain damage. Playing them helps even if I cannot complete them. I know I can go back and play the game again, concentrating on the puzzles. That is exactly what I am doing now.
Good Hint system,
Hint Button refills quickly,
Puzzles can be skipped,
Interactive items to fill circles,
Smooth game play,
Walkthrough is available.
Overall - it is fun. And what is more important than that? I certainly got my money's worth for this game. :)
