Escape the Emerald Star
"Best Pure Hidden Object Game I've Played"
Most of the time is spent in hidden object searches. The story line does not intrude on the game. Their are awards for various things but the average player will be able to collect them all. There are puzzles between each level (25) of the jigsaw, match 3 and Shanghai (Majong) variety. They are not timed and do not dead end so just keep plugging until you finish them. In the end you must put your escape gear together and this may be the most difficult for some but again no penalties so relax. I enjoyed the game.

A winner - with 25 levels of cool hidden object scenes & awesome trophies for accuracy & speed . . . In addition, if you find all 50 anchors, you get to play bonus rounds of mahjong, which are similar to some of the puzzles that close out a few of the levels . . . Lastly, you get to solve the ultimate problem of escaping the ghost ship . . . !

Lots of Hidden Object Fun
Great game. Lots of hidden object game play. Fun minigames. Although the game is timed, there is plenty of time to find all the objects. Boat is reminiscent of Titanic, especially the staircase. I especially like the free play if you find 50 anchors.

Great Way To Practice Your Skills
I first got started with HOGs when I tried Spin Tops 'Little Shop' games. I was hooked. Then I moved onto the wonderful of IHOGS and AHOGS. This Spin Top game was fun, and had the trophies and mini-games that made it even better.
I think of it as a way to hone my skills in seeking out all those hidden objects in the games I love.

HOG Lover--5 Star Hidden Object Game
Always looking for the really good game that, for whatever reason, either I missed or fell through the BFG "high-rating review" cracks.
"Escape the Emerald Star", is a QUALITY HOG with a decent story, clear, fun and creative hidden objects--quite simply a genuine, straightforward hidden object game--not so much an interactive movie, The quality is also in the details-- which kept my interest and makes this game super fun--good graphics, challenging, yet simplified objects, timed or untimed mode, choice of difficulty levels, cut-scenes, bonus content, ability to replay hidden object scenes, achievements and replay to improve scores.
Hidden object goals include higher scoring for fast finds as well as locating 2 anchors in each of the 25 scenes (50 in all) that unlocks the Special Bonus Mystery Game and attaining specific Achievements!
In all, a very fun--and challenging game for me to play without worrying that I've lost my place and must back track to refresh my memory. Enjoy! -Mama Mia-

One game that you'll like if you like a challenge and lots of hidden object levels!
If you're into hidden object games then you'll be hooked on this game, especially with the vast amount of "HOG" levels and the numerous "anchors" you have to find throughout each level.
I thoroughly enjoyed this game, as it actually made you think "outside the square" at times for the locatin of some of the hidden objects or the hidden "anchors".
Furthermore, this game for me did definitely offer a challenge and I was able to complete it to the end and in the process I'm currently holding the top score for this game.

Enjoy all the POPCAP games. . . especially the Mystery PI series. Just started the "Escapte" series and I am pleased to see the same format. Perfect change of pace that doesn't require refering to a stragey guide or a blog walk thru. The graphics are good and although my eyes aren't so good, I have no trouble making out the HOs which gives me many hours of enjoyment.

Good for Short Breaks
I get bored if I play one of the games for very long, but they are perfect for those short five-minute breaks when you want to give your brain a different sort of task to do. The games are beautifully drawn.
