Phenomenon: City of Cyan
phenomenon: city of cyan
Just finished the demo, and I really wanted to like this game. After all, it received 4 out of five stars and lots of glowing and gushing reviews. However, I could not wrap my head around why every mini puzzle told me step by step how to solve it! The dialogue and voice overs were tedious and confusing. I will not purchase this game even on DD.

My Least Fave Game Ever
It's really hard to write a bad review but I'll attempt it. This game is for fantasy buffs who don't care for challenges. There's way too much dialogue and it's not done well. The girl playing the heroine sounds annoyed as if she's whining about having to do her homework or something. Way too much talking and having to click thru endless screens of tiresome explanations for the "cyan" and the pendant and the pieces of pendant. Yawn.
There are way too many locations, most with only one item to click on and add to inventory. You spend half an hour getting into a locked location only to have one thing to click and it could have been organized better. The game doesn't flow well and it's somewhat chaotic.
The ending was so abrupt that I couldn't believe it. One click and it was over without explanation. What happened to whatshernames parents? Who knows but I won't be buying the sequel because I don't care. Someone dropped the ball on this game and I would not recommend buying it because there are way better games out there.
The only redeeming feature is that some of the HOGs are "puzzles within puzzles" and they were enjoyable but few and far between.
To sum it up: to call this game "lame" would be a compliment.

not worth the money
very disappointing. the narrating was bad and way to much talk telling me what to do next...and that was expert mode. the graphic were poor and overall I cannot recommend this.

This game was a true disapointment. The puzzles were simple, the talking was annoying and the expert level still had sparkles. The ending was the worst. OK so it wasn't the collector's addition, but you just stopped. How disappointing. I play a tremendous amount of adventure and Hidden Object games and if I hadn't paid for this I wouldn't have finished it.

Glad I didn't pay for it.
Got this as A free game. There was no rhym or reason to the scenes or the actions. I had to depend on the hints button for every move. There seemed to be scenes thrown in just to have A place for HO. The graphics are great the music is OK. The plot is all over the place and makes no sense, I finished the game just because I can't leave something un-finished but I feel I wasted an afternoon.

Can I give it negative stars?
My first review ever and I own around 900 Big Fish games but I had to this time, just HAD to. I wanted to like this game. You don't get to own almost 1000 BF games by NOT liking almost anything. But I couldn't get past the main character's terrible voice acting. It was so, so, SO bad! It made her sound stupid and uninteresting and as much as I think the game itself was probably great fun, I just couldn't get past her voice. It grated on my skin and made me clench my teeth and made me want to pull out my hair and scratch my nails down a chalkboard! UGGGGHHHH!!!!!

I had high hopes for this games...uninstalled half way through. Storyline did not flow, boring story & lead character voice over was horrible.
IMO...don't waste your time.

Without a doubt the dumbest game I've played in a long time. Do not, repeat, do not waste your time.

Not sure what they were thinking when they came up with this game. It's just to strange for me.
