Secrets of Great Art
Great game - beautiful art
I have played this game countless times and I love it. I find it very relaxing. The differences are not impossible to find, you just have to spend the time looking. The artwork is beautiful. I guess it wont appeal to those wanting excitement but not all of us do - all the time.

This plain and simply is a relaxing game. If you want something fast paced and mind boggling, this will not be your cup of tea. This is a hidden object and match the differences with beautiful art work and nice music. There are times when some of the HO's are difficult to find because they blend into the background. If you wait long enough the HO's become more defined. You have three hints everytime. But if it is action, forget it. If you just want to play something relaxing--this is it. Oh, and I gave this a 5 star on the storyline because there is none, it is just relaxing and nothing challenging to blow your mind. Therefore it does meet the qualification for the storyline of this type of game.

A Quality Game
I really enjoyed this lovely game. It has beautiful paintings with hidden objects on them, and good music.
The objects were not hard to find.

So what's not to like?
True, it's only a "Find- the- Differences" game but I love the graphics, the subjects, the relaxation it provides. Beautiful artwork! Puzzles range from easy to challenging.
Please, Big Fish Powers-That-Be: More games for art lovers! How about a Guess-The-Artist game that features masterpieces through the ages, from early to modern?
A lot of members look for diversity in BF games, including some that tap the brain and provide educational visionary appeal.

Great Masterpieces & Gameplay All in One!
The game involves finding secret items hidden in great works of art and then finding the ten differences in another painting. Great music and an engaging storyline.

I thought it was just ok
The art is great but some of the hidden objects are hard to see. There's not much to this hidden object game other than finding the differences. I guess I like more of a story line to keep my interest up. I did the free demo but won't be buying the game.

I tried the demo version of this game on casual mode and found it rather unsatisfying. The HO scenes and (LOTS of) find the difference scenes were hard to figure out and I found myself using the hint more than I would usually do in a game of this sort, The story is thin, it's a series of HO and FTD games.

Too difficult for me
I played the demo for about 30 minutes. The story was really enticing and I wanted to find out more. But I found the HOs too hard to find. The paintings are very beautiful and the music relaxing. But I just got more and more stressed as I tried to find the HOs without success. I didn't find out what happens when you run out of hints, because I quit before I did.

Cliffhanger with no sequel
The graphics are sharp, clear, and colorful. The music is classic sounding and relaxing. It fits the theme of the game.
The game involves finding objects hidden in a great work of art. Most of the paintings are lesser known works from the mid to late 19th century. Once you've done a couple scenes like this you do a FTD with two versions of another great work. In between rounds of this you receive short chapters of a story. The HOS are timed and at the end of each you receive a score card that tells you how many misclicks you made and how long it took you. None of the scenes are repeated.
The story is about a man who wakens in unfamiliar surroundings and unfolds as he slowly begins to remember who is is and how he got there. I found the story interesting but it ends abruptly with a screen that says "To be continued". Unfortunately, there is no sequel that I can find so you never get to find out what happens next. This is somewhat annoying.
The HOS were moderately challenging at times but I also felt that the list of clues was sometimes misleading or unfair. For example, you're told to find an umbrella but there are two in the scene and only one is correct. The other is considered a parasol. This happens frequently enough to become a little irritating especially since clicking the wrong one adds to your misclick count.
Overall, I liked the game well enough to recommend it but the fact that it has no sequel following its cliffhanger ending lowered my rating to 3.
