Howlville: The Dark Past
Too many HOs
If HO scenes are your thing, you will love this game. There were waaaaay too many for me, though - you'd do one or two things and then immediately be presented with yet another HO scene. As HOs go, these are good - they are interactive, at least; but they are of the junkpile variety and I got really tired of them - enough so that I stopped playing the game.

Howlville is not for me
I was not impressed with this game. My reasons: the graphics were basic, the game progressed slowly, the curser was sluggish, and the story line was very basic. I turned the volume down to eliminate the noise. I suggest playing the demo before purchasing. I wish I had.

Was not a fan of this game
I am sorry to say, but I did not really like this game too much. The opening scene reminded me of a scene from a bad comic book. In all fairness, I did not finish the demo because it was too painful to complete. I basically knew I had enough after the short time I played. It was not interesting to me. I am a fan of Greenhill Sanitarium, MCF, etc....so you can compare my taste to yours.

Howlville: The Dark Past
This game is brilliant for those who enjoy HOS which basically make up the majority of this game, I personally like more adventure.

Story is sort of engaging; several mini games are glitchy (not completing even with the correct result) and must be skipped; game is rather short; and HOS are often needlessly difficult with items colored exactly like the background.

It is not a complicated game. It only moves in one direction, which is forward, and does not go back (which makes a map unnecessary). The story is OK as motivation, the HOGs are competent, and you get to think a bit as you move forward.
There aer better games, but also worse. It is OK

Pointless, boring and stupid HOG
Howlville is aptly named because it is a dog.
What I liked: The art in the scenes
What I disliked: The art in the HOS and the lack of a plot and the lack of any intelligent thought in the play.
This game featured some easy puzzles and some that were too awful to attempt. The awful ones had extremely long waits until I could skip them. The HOS varied between well drawn and absolutely terrible. There were far too many items which were so dark as to be invisible. I spent over a month trying to get interested enough to finish this game and could not force myself to play it. It lacks any semblance of continuity because there is no logic why one would do the next step in the game. Keep the walk through open because you will need it every few seconds. Awful. The plot was stupid and certainly not entertaining. The best thing about this game was finally finishing it. I did not find it entertaining at all.

hidden object game
the game did nothing for me far to many hog and very little story line

DID NOT ENJOY
HO scenes dominated. I got sick of them! Also, some objects were so small - almost impossible to find. Hints were limited, so I ended up randomly clicking to find the last one or two items.
Explanation for some puzzles were not sufficient to figure out what to do.
Kind of stupid story. I got tired of reading, "Lock is closed."
All in all - a disappointment.

Mostly Hidden Object Scenes!!!!!
I love HOG'S as much as the next girl, but periodically, not one every two seconds! This game is seriously pretty much all HOS'S. You still move around and explore..., but the HOS are what your mostly going to find! If your into that, You will adore this game. If not.....its not for you. It was a pity too, because this game had okay graphics, and the storyline was actually interesting. Try the demo and get a feel for it. Trust me the hour is all you'll need to know whether or not you'll want to buy. Happy gaming gamers!!
