Howlville: The Dark Past
Howlville a dog? That just denegrates canines.
I am amazed at all the rave reviews for this game and sorry I wasted a free credit on it. What amazed me even more was I played it in EASY mode and still found it difficult. I considered rating it 2 stars for the graphics, story, special effects and beginning of the game but my frustration level with the game held me back to only 1 star for those attributes and minus 4 stars for everything else.
o Way too many frustrating puzzles that had REALLY LONG SKIP times so I spent my game time waiting for the skip to fill rather than playing the game. Simon Says & the last puzzle I think were two of the worst.
o Illogical interactive HOS that caused me to spend a lot of the remaining time in HOS. Thankfully the HINT fills fast so toward the end of the game I just started clicking everything without even reading the list until I had most of the items found. I did fill the MISCLICK meter once doing this but it was worth it!
I came very close to quitting the game even on the last puzzle but I stuck it out until the bitter end. Would I play this game again? NEVER! Buyer beware!

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.

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.

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.
