Amazing Adventures Riddle of the Two Knights
Basic HO Game
This game is primarily HOS with a few mini games thrown in. You are on the trail of a chess set that is tied to two knights. You go to Switzerland and Morocco. There are 25 levels and you visit each HOS location numerous times. They become repetitive after awhile. This is a fairly basic HO game, but most of the objects are well hidden.
I became bored with this game towards the end. Had visited the same locations one too many times. The hint button refills quickly, which is helpful if you hit the boredom stage.
I recommend this game to those that need a change of pace and want a slower moving game or to those that prefer HOS over mini games.

Best of the Amazing Adventure games
This is my favorite of the Amazing Adventures games. A good hidden object game with scenes from England, Switzerland, and Morocco. The art work is very good and the objects are well-hidden but large enough to see. There are 25 levels to work through, which makes it a long game. If you find 50 crowns, two in each new hidden object scene, the unlimited seek and find part of the game opens up. If you miss some of the crowns or forget to look for them, don't worry. The scenes are repeated several times and you will have another chance. You can tell if you've already found the crowns in that scene by seeing if the crown symbols at the top are lit up. You can play this unlimited part of the game after you finish the main game. Basically in the main game you're looking for 10 hidden objects in each scene. Even in the Relaxed Mode there is a speed bonus, so if you look for two or three objects, then click on each of them quickly, you get extra points. There are also point penalties for random clicking and using the Hint button. Unlike the other Amazing Adventure games, after you find the hidden objects in each scene you go straight to another scene and find more hidden objects. Toward the end of each section there is a mini-game to play and a final activity. All the scenes are repeated, but you're looking for different objects in each repetition. I thought this was the best of the Amazing Adventure games because you didn't have to play a mini-game after every single hidden object scene. That kind of thing gets very repetitious and even boring at times, so I was very glad to see that they cut way down on the mini-games. It's a big improvement in the overall game!

Classic HO ? No Surprises
BASED ON COMPLETED GAME
Story: After pieces of an ancient tablet begin appearing around the globe, the museum calls you in to hunt them down and follow the clues to the greatest gem the world has ever known -- the famous "World Diamond".
Developer: PopCap Games
Release Date: May 2012
Extras: High Scores, Times and Collectibles, Unlimited HOs, Click 2 Game
I admit to being disappointed with this latest Amazing Adventure. I thought maybe they might have added a few bells and whistles to compete with all the amazing HOPAs out now.
I assumed they would stick to their formula of course ? HO scenes followed by a simple puzzle, repeat ad nauseum. This is sensible of them. They have a strong niche in the pure HO market. But why not add a little animation, a bit of (optional) back-story, an occasional surprise?
Your mission this time takes you to Switzerland and Morocco, of all places, but there?s no rhyme nor reason in the progression through locations.
As with all Amazing Adventures, they have collectibles that unlock unlimited play, and they are timed and scored.
Personally, I don?t like these games, but I think that they are quite good examples of pure HO games, so if that?s what you like, I?d recommend it.

Knights HO Game
After playing many Pop Cap games, this one came up short compared to the others. Too many objects were to faint to be found, even with the hint. The music was drab and not as upbeat and pleasant as previous games. The puzzles were also not very good. Graphics were sound and the 25 levels kept one going. The ending was quite poor.

Not Much of a Story
Played only the first "mission". This is HOS after HOS after HOS. Mini games are "match 2" and place items back in the scene.
Graphics are good quality with an occasional "dark object on a dark background" thrown in.
This would have been a good game 10 years ago, but I found it tedious and boring today.

Good for beginners, but not much for different puzzles.

amazing adventures the tale of the two knights
This game stopped when I got to the puzzle with the truck near the dig site. I have already paid for this game through IWiin. This is very frustrating I even redownloaded it and the same thing happens I like these kind of games because they challenge me but I have never had this problem before

I bought this game as a DOD just to have something to noodle around with when I'm up late at night enjoying the quiet, and also to get a cheap punch on my punch card. After noodling around with it for a while last night, I found out that even though I used to enjoy straight hidden object games, I've apparently become spoiled playing the HOPA games here at BF. Going back to straight HO is now just a big snooze for me.
That said, these games are pure genius as far as hiding objects within the clear, bright scenes goes. If you just want to noodle around on the computer for a while, the Hidden Adventure series is your ticket.
