Fantastic Creations: House of Brass Collector's Edition
Although visually and sonorously polished, this game is average. HO scenes are a bit different, e.g. Find objects that are round, etc. It didn't run well on my computer while other applications were running.
This is a short game. The lack of particular challenge did not help this. I finished this game in about 2&1/2 hours.
One of the things I liked was how the game is laid out. You will be thinking vertically as oppose to a sprawling collection of rooms. To me this allowed easy navigation and remembering where rooms were, though there aren't that many rooms. You will probably enjoy this game. I was never bored but I wasn't wowed either.

Good game but too short even with the bonus content
This was a very cool game. Nice and original twists on the standard hidden objects portions. A lot of pipe puzzles, circuit puzzles and ring matching puzzles, all of which I enjoy. Excellent music. Great artwork.
So why only 3 stars? It's too short for a $13.99 game. Even with the bonus content included there is probably only about 3-4 hours worth of play in the game. For a game that really doesn't offer any incentive to play it again once you have gone through it the first time, that seems like a poor value. There are $1.99 games in the App Store that have longer play value with the same level of quality.
It's a lot of fun while it lasts. It just doesn't last very long. There are games of equal quality, but much more to do and see. I just can't recommend spending $13.99 on this or $6.99 when the regular version comes out.

I bought the game. The graphics were excellent as were the voice acting. The mini game are very original and rather unique. And i gave Fun Factor a 4 because of the mini games. But i found the story rather poorly done. I don't know about you, but i find that stories make the game and always has been an important factor for me. I found the game to be rather short even with the Bonus Game Play. I can't really advise you to buy the game that is up to you, but for me i wished i hadn't...

I was not offered to play trial before the game was released. I bought Collectorsa Addition.
Nice graphics and story line, but games are mostly the same and I did not care for them at all. Game was toooooo short and bonus content was a let down. I do not thinlk this game is worthy of being called a collectors edition and will not purchase another like it.

Based on the extremely short demo version offered it doesn't appear to be worth the money.
HOS too easy, , graphics were ok but again, only getting 20 minutes of play time did not reveal a game that was worth the Collectors edition cost.

Was really looking forward to this but was really disappointed especially after just completing the game Nightmares From The Deep, The Cursed Heart CE, which was PERFECT!!, this game just back and forth, up and down in the lift every 5 minutes with not much of a storyline. I couldn't wait for it to end.

To me this was one of the worst games?
it was the same games on every level only may be a little harder is all. I am disabled so I play a lot of games and this one was one of the worst. I just do not know how to put it in words. It was boring. Even the storyline was boring. The game that they offered for buying this one was more fun. If you like only engineering you may like it, but remember on each level the games are the same. If you buy this game. Good luck and I hope you enjoy it. Because I did not!

This is one of those games that makes the "free trial" worth it!
This game looked really cool, but I was severely disappointed in it. The hidden object scenes were constructed with a very old school feel, and it was very obvious where you had to go and what you had to do. I am glad that I did not waste my money on it.

I only got 40 minutes of a free trial, and it wanted me to buy. I couldn't stand that guy's voice, maybe this is for young people.

Pretty awful game -- and nothing to collect!
This game is too difficult for very yong players, too boring for older kids and teenagers and too easy for adults. I cannot find anything to like except maybe the sound, but that is not exactly the main reason to like a game. Some of the hidden object scenes are pretty silly, and that is typical for the game all over. I cannot find any reason for Big Fish Games to put a double prize on this game as a "Collector's Edition" -- if I ever came upon a game there's no reason to collect, this is it! I hope game creators could spend their time making other games than those filled with hidden objects scenes -- they are repeatedly depressing.
