Amazing Adventures Riddle of the Two Knights
Classic HO ? No Surprises
BASED ON COMPLETED GAME
Story: After pieces of an ancient tablet begin appearing around the globe, the museum calls you in to hunt them down and follow the clues to the greatest gem the world has ever known -- the famous "World Diamond".
Developer: PopCap Games
Release Date: May 2012
Extras: High Scores, Times and Collectibles, Unlimited HOs, Click 2 Game
I admit to being disappointed with this latest Amazing Adventure. I thought maybe they might have added a few bells and whistles to compete with all the amazing HOPAs out now.
I assumed they would stick to their formula of course ? HO scenes followed by a simple puzzle, repeat ad nauseum. This is sensible of them. They have a strong niche in the pure HO market. But why not add a little animation, a bit of (optional) back-story, an occasional surprise?
Your mission this time takes you to Switzerland and Morocco, of all places, but there?s no rhyme nor reason in the progression through locations.
As with all Amazing Adventures, they have collectibles that unlock unlimited play, and they are timed and scored.
Personally, I don?t like these games, but I think that they are quite good examples of pure HO games, so if that?s what you like, I?d recommend it.

Knights HO Game
After playing many Pop Cap games, this one came up short compared to the others. Too many objects were to faint to be found, even with the hint. The music was drab and not as upbeat and pleasant as previous games. The puzzles were also not very good. Graphics were sound and the 25 levels kept one going. The ending was quite poor.

Not Much of a Story
Played only the first "mission". This is HOS after HOS after HOS. Mini games are "match 2" and place items back in the scene.
Graphics are good quality with an occasional "dark object on a dark background" thrown in.
This would have been a good game 10 years ago, but I found it tedious and boring today.

Good for beginners, but not much for different puzzles.

Hidden Object Game
Lots of fun just like the other "Amazing" games!

This was described as an adventure game. It was pure HOS. No story line, no adventure Got bored in the first 15 minutes

amazing adventures the tale of the two knights
This game stopped when I got to the puzzle with the truck near the dig site. I have already paid for this game through IWiin. This is very frustrating I even redownloaded it and the same thing happens I like these kind of games because they challenge me but I have never had this problem before

I bought this game as a DOD just to have something to noodle around with when I'm up late at night enjoying the quiet, and also to get a cheap punch on my punch card. After noodling around with it for a while last night, I found out that even though I used to enjoy straight hidden object games, I've apparently become spoiled playing the HOPA games here at BF. Going back to straight HO is now just a big snooze for me.
That said, these games are pure genius as far as hiding objects within the clear, bright scenes goes. If you just want to noodle around on the computer for a while, the Hidden Adventure series is your ticket.

Very Simple. Might be OK for beginners
Another Hidden Object Game from PopCap, Amazing Adventures: The Riddle of the Two Knights is nowhere near as good as others we?ve seen.
While others provided a small story, this game had absolutely no storyline at all, not even an intro. I don?t know about you, but I?d want to know why I?m going on an ?adventure? as this game calls it, before I go. Storylines are designed to draw you in and make you want to keep playing. Because of the absence of a storyline, this game lacks the ability to make you play longer.
The main gameplay of this game is LOTS of HOS with a few scattered puzzles. While the game tries to trick us with riddle clues instead of item clues and the occasional extra step objects, the HOS themselves are pretty simple. The whole game is a points system, with points being added for finding items and points taken away for hints and misclick penalties. The gameplay is relatively simple and would be great for beginners, not so much for me.
The graphics are good, with artwork well done, the HOS and puzzles clear, everything you would expect for a standard game. The graphics are not poor, but are not fascinating either, really just standard.
The game features a quickly recharging hint, but at the cost of losing points, and a quickly recharging skip for the puzzles. Features the occasional journal entry, but as far as stories go, this is it.
This game would be great for beginners, but for advanced or expert players, or for people who love storylines (like me), I would advise to steer clear of this game.

I don't like giving a bad review on a game. This game was boring for me. It would be great for a 1st timer who never played a hidden object game.
The items are easy to locate. The storyline was unmemorable.
As I stated, this game would be great for a first timer.
