To Devs Everywhere: Help Us Learn!
BASED ON COLLECTOR?S EDITION
Disconcertingly, going through this SG made me realise how little there really was to this game, even though I?d played it several times before and never thought it short. There really isn?t much to review here but what there is, is not all bad.
There are the irritations, like not being able to move through the chapters with the page arrows. At the end of each (small) chapter, I?d have to go back to the contents page to continue.
And there are the omissions, like instructions on how to play match-3 that don?t mention swapping the objects to create groups of three. I know we all know it, but not everyone does ? and there are a variety of match styles.
Then, there?s the good stuff, like a well described and pictured solution to a sliders puzzle.
For my preference, wherever possible at least the guiding principle of a game should be given as a matter of course in every SG.
In short, as I?ve being saying often lately, if you make the puzzle difficult and the SG really really basic, with the solution clearly explained, both amateur and expert puzzlers are happy ? and buy more CEs

The graphics are outstanding! The sound track is good and well suited to the story. The level of difficulty is appropriate for all age groups. The story has a kind of sadness to it that the happy ending could not dispel. The HOGs were fairly easy to find and of a good size. Lots of backtracking and picking up random items. I like the option to play a find three game in place of the HOG. Gives some variety. Overall it was really fun and I recommend it.
