Clairvoyant: The Magician Mystery
Really liked this game
For the most part, I have only been buying CE's and finding it hard to find a SE to spend my credits on. But this game was really cool. There was a lot to do and figure out. You have to find 26 Ace of Spade cards throughout the game, there are tons of hidden object scenes that are interactive. And I really liked the puzzles, although some of them I had to skip. The hint button is really helpful by telling you if there is something to do in the area. I really enjoyed this game and was sorry to see it end. I will play it again, maybe I'll even try the Hard mode. I heard the Hard mode gives you absolutely no hints at all. I'm a glutton for punishment. LOL.

I love this game. Awesome characters, graphics and puzzles.
Fun to travel all over a carnival in search of a kidnapping victim. You will uncover a web of mystery in this game as well. Not much of a map but you won't need one. Looking for cards throughout the game is also very cool. The HO's where some objects are really hard to find! Moderate length in play time. Hints recharge quickly, thank goodness, cause the items are hard to find, being so small.

Loved this game!
I'm admittedly addicted to HOGs, and this game has an abundance of HO scenes, so I'm thrilled. The graphics are relatively clear, not a whole lot of dark corners...as for the sound quality, cannot comment because I don't use the sound on most games. The story line is fairly interesting...find the murderer in a circus environment. Did not use the hint option often, but seemed to load at a decent rate. Your inventory can be used fairly quickly....not a whole lot of traveling all over the place trying to remember where you needed what. If you're into HOGs, this is a must have game!

I have actually quite enjoyed this game, i did purchase with a coupon code so not too bothered about wasting money but even if i had paid i'd still have given this little gem 4 stars. The graphics are not the best and i did find the constant HOS quite frustrating because they were on every corner, though they are interactive. The hint button was great if you got stuck on where to go next but the map was next to useless!! don't know why it was there to be honest. All in all it is worth an afternoon of fun.

Great game for adventurer beginners
This is a great game if you are new to adventure and hidden object games. It has great graphics, not overwhelming, clear hidden objects so you don't search endlessly for them.
The storyline is pretty straight forward. I won't give away the end. Overall, it clean cut fun.

An okay game
When I saw this game, I immediately thought 'Oh, I'm glad I have some credits', because I love games set in carnivals, but I was disappointed. I played the game on the Casual level, and there is an Expert level also. I found the game to be just too simple. It could be a good game for somebody just starting out with HOGs and Adventure games, but I really found the HOS (of which there were too many in my opinion) very easy. They were your usual junkpile of objects, and you got an inventory item at the end of each one. When you received an inventory item it was used quite quickly and there was no real challenge as to where to use it. The puzzles were very easy. The music was pleasantly atmospheric and not too obtrusive. There was a LOT of going back and forth, and although you have a map, it wasn't interactive which was quite annoying. I found the graphics to be reasonable, but I have seen a lot better. I won't be purchasing this game with a credit - I'll maybe buy it for a Daily Deal, but really only because I want to find out the ending.

YUP, YUP, YUP
I enjoyed this game except for a few times when I was completely stuped as to where to go next. But with the help of the forums and just plain perseverance I finally made it through. I truly enjoyed the premise of the game as it was a bit different. There is no walkthrough, but if you persevere you can make it through without one. Enjoy this one and take your time. Think outside of the box on occasion.
Give it a try and see what you think.

an enjoyable game !
A very good story : we are a detective, we must solve a mystery : where is the missing magician and what happens to him ? Who is the criminal ? They are all suspects...
We walk into a circus of course : I love this kind of games !
The graphics are very colored, there are a lot of HOS but they are easy and bright, a bit interactive.
There are also many puzzles, they are easy but fun.
A very good game to spend quality time with fun, waiting an excellent CE tomorrow I hope !

Flat HOG scenes detract from experience
My main complaint about this game is that the scenes lack dimension. In the HOG scenes the flatness makes finding objects less enjoyable. In the "story" scenes the dialogue is all text. The music is repetitive and not appropriate to the game. The artwork appears to have been down by artists working in completely different styles.
At two steps above Solitare, the game is okay for a rainy day thumb-twiddle and that's the only reason I recommend it.
