Howlville: The Dark Past
Hidden Objects Mania !!
The visual and sound great and if you love HO games well you are going to be pleased. However it is the same old story again. I probably should not have began this game after coming off of two super adventure games that really had me smiling. Not being a Hidden Objects game fan and especially one with overclick penalty, this game just had me cringing. Fun factor: Ah, I would have to say "painful". Just too, too much Hidden Objects and not enough substance for this fishie. This is a no buy for me.

I only played the trial part of the game, but I was not impressed. Had no clue what I was supposed to do. I wasted most of the time just clicking everywhere trying to figure out what moved and what didn't. Other than the HINTS there was no help at all. I'm glad I didn't go ahead and buy this one.

Not Worth Money
I definitely was not impressed with this game at all. It was not what I thought it would be based on the reviews I read prior to purchase. I love HOGs so loved all of those but most of the puzzles were just too easy. I'll stick to HOG CE in future. Thanks though BF! Love your site & games and will continue to purchase in the future. Best of luck to all!

Howlville is AWFUL
TOO many hidden object games, the storyline was nonexistent. If you love hidden object games, this is it....too boring for my taste.

Well, that was a waste of time
I really don't know why I played this game through to the end. I kept wanting it to just be....over already!
Too many HOS and they were poorly done. Who even knows what some of that stuff was? It was very, very, very linear. You play one area and get through the door or whatever to the next area, and you can never go back. So that made it very boring as well.
The only hints were if you made sure to find these ridiculously hidden little light bulbs. There was about 1 per area (at least that I managed to find).
The puzzles could be challenging but they weren't a FUN kind of challenge. The rest were just boring.
No extras at all.
I got this on the daily deal which is why I played it a year after it came out. Still, I could hardly believe that this was produced only a year ago. The quality was way more dated than that.
Nutsy storyline too.
I recommend you don't even bother paying 2.99 for it.

HIDDEN OBJECT GAME
IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A HIDDEN OBJECT GAME WELL THIS IS THE ONE. YOU HAVE A HOS ABOUT EVERY OTHER STEP YOU TAKE IN THIS GAME.. THE BAD PART IS THAT IS HOW YOU MOVE ON TO THE NEXT FRAME OF GAME. THE ONLY THING THAT I DONE WAS GO FROM ONE HOS TO ANOTHER AND THAT WAS ABOUT ALL I DID.THE MUSIC IS OK. THE FUN FACTOR WELL LETS SAY THIS IT NO FUN FAR AS I AM CONCERN. THE CHALLENGE WELL MY DOG COULD PLAY THIS GAME. THIS GAME WAS PITTIFUL AND I FOUND IT VERY BORING AND ANNOYING JUST GO FROM ONE TO THE OTHER HOG THE PUZZLES WELL THEY WERE BASICLY FOR BEGINNERS.VISUAL WAS BASICLY FAIR TO GOOD NOTHING SPECTACULAR. NOW I AM NOT GOING SAY THIS BUT I WILL THIS IS THE FIRST GAME I EVER BROUGHT THAT WAS NO FUN FROM BIG FISH. THE GAME CREDIT I USED TO PURCHASE THIS GAME WAS IN VAIN. THE FIRST REVIEW I READ ON THIS GAME I SHOULD HAVE LISTEN BECAUSE ANY GAME IS AT THE PLAYER DISCRETION. YET AT THE SAME TIME SHE WAS RIGHT. THIS GAME IS FOR THE FISH FOOD IN THE POND.

Having trouble sleeping?
I found the play in this game to be so slow and the music dragged to the point where I actually found myself falling asleep at the keyboard. I bailed before the trial was done.

Didn't like at all
The least hidden object game I liked. I found quite irritating
