Rather amateurish for today's players
The graphics are very basic; more like something I would have expected to see perhaps 10 years ago. The interactive controls are a bit sluggish and clumsy. The storyline is okay; but certainly not brilliant. The hidden object scenes leave something to be desired; because many of the objects are really tiny. The mini-games are acceptable, but not imaginative. (At least the mini-games do have clear instructions.) The dialogue needs polish - it is obvious that it was not originally written in English. For a real beginner at HOGs this might do. Based on the demo, it would be appropriate for a family game; because there is nothing scary, so kids could play. At the end of the 60 minute demo, I had finished chapter 6. I did not skip mini-games, or dialogue; so I believe it would be a very short game, since it only has 11 chapters.

Silly game, can not arouse curiosity or desire to keep playing ...
Story is not bad, but without VO, without motion or animation... discourages!
Excess of HOS, and are not well made . Some objects are too small ... is boring.
Tools on the way can only be caught after appearing where it will be used.
Tutorial appears all the time, even in hard mode.
I gave up after 20 minutes

Oh dear God above Big Fish, what were you thinking?? Absolute garbage!! The graphics alone give it zero stars not to mention the frustrating game itself! The HOS were BORING!! even in the easy mode the hint button took forever to fill up, sorry but i deleted after 15 mins. Don't waste your money fellow fishies :-(

I love sci-fi, and I love time travel themes and I really wanted to like this game, but I can't. It is slow, painful work to try and play this game. The cursor doesn't always work when you click on an item and some items appear to me to be mislabled. The hint button was more absent than present and my goodness what I wouldn't have given for a skip button in some of the puzzles! If you want to play a time travel sci-fi story, stick to the Flux Family games; they do it right.

This one is a buy....
What's with the low 1 and 2 star scores just because it's "difficult", there is a walkthrough.
I enjoyed this game even though simple maneuvers and graphics; in fact, I found it even more enjoyable than many of the newer whoopee doopee graphics games. ;)
Check it out... you may be surprised as I was to enjoy this one. (crush)

I am very wary of those who give 5 star glowing reviews to a 2 star game that is difficult to play, and it is their one and only review. At least do another review so that it is not suspect.... also play some of the other 4-5 star games and see what is missing in this one...maybe you'll be able to develop a better game in the future.
This game is difficult to find areas of interest, I clicked everywhere to find hidden object scenes and other areas or where to go. It drove me crazy, trying to find out how to keep my wine-soaked map from continuing to blow into the wine everytime I picked it up. If it were not for the walkthrough, I would have given up and deleted the game. The storyline intrigued me enough to want to see where the game was going. It focuses on your first trip to France in 1626 where you meet a musketeer and save his life, and bandage his bleeding arm. I had to use several hints just to make a bandage, and the walkthrough to complete this task. As the musketeer heads off to save the queen, you find a diamond necklace on the ground, which you should have left there... You won't make it this far without lots of help, you'll be using hint assists to find other areas, that clicking doesn't. The hidden object searches are boring, items are hidden behind other objects and this makes it frustrating. No real directions are given. The minigames are same-o same-o, nothing unique, nothing that stands out to make this a great game. The game is short, not much game play as you try to return the necklace to avoid a temporal breach in time. You take a few trips to India and a Mayan pyramid, and it's not clear how that fits with a necklace from France. I would say to avoid wasting time and play the demo before you waste your money.

Frustrating Hidden Object Game
I got frustrated with this game, usually when you click on things you get a bit more information, I gave up on it after about 5 mins.

15 minutes was all I could stand before uninstalling.
Not only was it boring, the curser was very touchy when attempting to click on the "eye" in order to perform some type of function. Got tired of moving the curser around and around in order to be able to get the "eye" to stabalize so I could click on it.
As you play, there is writing near the top of the screen with information, however, I found the font to small to read easily.

This was not fun to play. There's too much looking around and trying to find something to do, even in the easy mode. It's not worth my time. Other games are much more interesting.

Because of the storyline (time travel, parodoxes), I thought this could be an interesting game. I played in advanced mode. The graphics are ok, the music also. The objects in the HOS are easy to find. The puzzles are sometimes easy, sometimes challenging. I thought "ok, well, nevermind, the story is interesting", but I finished in 1 1/2 hours! That's definitely too short. So not worth the money.
