The Flux Family games are a nice change of pace. This one is a long game and toward the end I was beginning to wonder when it would end.

Fun Hidden Object Game
I love hidden object games, need more of them to come out.

THIRD IN THE SERIES
This game is about time travel and mixes facts with fiction as you travel through time and visit different world locations and time periods in an attempt to save the Flux family from world destruction. Various famous people throughout history are highlighted in the game.
The graphics are bright and sharp. Although there are the normal hidden object list scenes, every scene has objects that must be found, either to add to inventory, or to be combined and then added to inventory.
The puzzles are varied but not that hard. The game is fairly easy to figure out what to do next and how to do it. At no time did I need to refer to the strategy guide, although I did use the hint button at times to figure out the next step.
Kept me interested and involved the whole time.

Don't start with this one of the series!
I did start with this game which is one of a series. It threw me off until I let go and just played. You can get confused enough with the time and place jumps.
The story line is that you are trying to rectify a time mess you've created in the past. You run in to relatives who have been out to get you in the past but are helping you now but they've been warped by the need to get everything aligned to "save the family". Bad family dynamics!
There are time portals and again you help famous people from the past.
The art work it good but the characters are cartoony and conflict with the scenes. You have to find HOs everywhere you go - some are hidden inside things. You can also click on them and the "hint" button shows you the shape you should be looking for. Then you put things together and gain a tool to use in another scene. The animation is negligible and the dialogue isn't terrible inspired but does add minimally to the game.
All in all a good game.

a good game in the series
i am getting tired of the flux games but they are good games. they aren't overly hard but make you think. hints recharge fairly quickly, but i find myself getting tired of playing them. it is NOT the game, but my preferences. all the games are good. this one and the one before it in the series were typical flux family.

OOPS! They didn't do it again
First let me say that I really like(d) this series.
One of my favorite things is the right-click magnifying glass in the HO scenes ... even though I still had to refer to Hints in several of them.
I like the "cartoonish" art work.
Unfortunately, the cut scenes and shifts between chapters were as slow as molasses in winter ... and this is in a pretty high-spec machine.
What tore it for me is that (what I believe is one of the final scenes) all of a sudden, the screen resolution changed to where I could no longer see everything on-screen. Never did get ot finish the game.
Regrettably, I can't recommend the game.

Is anyone else tired of HO scenes every 2 minutes? Or this trend of making you wear a tool belt? I'm so sick of always looking for a wrench or a screwdriver. And HOs should be left to those who know how to do them in a creative way (the MCF guys).
The original Flux was great--beautiful historical scenes with a zoom button, no less! One of my all-time faves. And NO HO lists--I loved it.

Not the Best Flux Family
The story relied too heavily on knowing the first 2 games. I played them so I sort of knew what was going on but not really. Plot was really hard to follow. Puzzles were uneven. Thank Goodness for the skip button. The game started to become tedious and the puzzles not fun to do. Graphics were good. HOS were standard fair. A lot of traveling to do so it became tedious as well. It was OK to play. Glad I used a credit.
