Twisted Lands: Origin
Thoroughly enjoyed this one!
Just bought this yesterday, and I couldn't stop playing until I finished it up today. Pretty good puzzles (some were easy; others more difficult), good story, and good HOS's. I liked this background story for the other two Twisted Lands that I already have. Kudos to the originators.

One terrific game
Decided to buy it before demo was over, and really glad I did. The game was long, fun, and the ending wrapped EVERYTHING up, for once. The hint button would lead you where you needed to go, and I loved that. I never had to use a walkthrough, although once I was tempted to, but the hint button helped so much. I did skip quite a few puzzles as some repeated, and I never knew how to solve the first one, so never did figure them out, but this was one fun game! Different locations, a great story, nice graphics and perfect HOS--not too hard nor easy.
You will definitely enjoy this one.

A must play!
Great game! Really good length. Lots of playing time with good puzzles. Storyline was interesting and kept you playing. This is one of the best games that I have played. This is the best of the Twisted lands games yet. A definite buy! It is worth it.

I expected more . . .
. . . and got it in the visuals. I loved, loved, loved how the videos were done (don't want to say too much and spoil it for anyone). Would be great to see this in all games. The story, as with other Twisted Lands games, was good but the play factor was a big letdown for me. It was too formulaic and simple-minded. I actually found myself getting bored between cutscenes. I'm still glad I played the game because it does fill out the storyline and you don't want to miss how the videos were done but I say get it on sale if you can.

Good storyline: a detective is searching for a clients daughter, and stumbles into lots of chaos. VOS. HOS not clear. Puzzles not too hard, but long skip button. Hint points in right direction to go. Overall a good game, but not the best graphics. Medium length: 4 hours casual.

Gripping story line
I really enjoyed this game. Even thought the story line revolves around finding a love one, the way the plot evolves and thickens makes you want to finish the game in one go.
Here are a couple of elements I particularly liked:
* Graphics are very well done
* a lot of areas to unlock gradually
* Interesting cut scenes
* Love the plot
A little plus in this game: little Hispanic accent was cute AND accurate for the voice over

Simple & Enjoyable
I did enjoy this game.
Pretty straight forward, HOS not hard, Mini games simple yet fun.
Smooth flowing, good graphics.
Game was enjoyable but not much difficulty.

Pretty good game
This is a well-produced game that is fun to play. The story is not the best, and there is a 3-D map feature that is supposed to get updated as the story proceeds, but to what purpose? Not clear at all. The gameplay map shows where action is needed - sometimes - but it doesn't allow jumping. So, lots of back and forth. The HINT works well pointing where to go. HOS and puzzles are OK, with a slow-charging HINT and SKIP button. Artwork is good, but the music is annoying.

MUST HAVE MISSED SOMETHING
After playing the other 2 Twisted Lands games, I was looking forward to Origin. A little disappointed about the ending. Perhaps I did miss something. The scenes were the usual jumping around but the hint not only refilled quickly but acted as a guide to get from place to place. HOs were the usual, some objects small and harder to find. Loved the animation and VOs. Can't comment on the music because I wasn't paying much attention. The puzzles were good, some harder than others. I didn't get to see what I thought would the results of the experiments. Had to use my imagination but it would have been great to actually SEE it.

Great Backstory of Great Series
I loved the earlier Twisted Lands and this is the best of the series. I found the HO easy to find and the puzzles easy to hard. I played casual. I really enjoyed reading all the diaries and understood the storyline. I hope to see more from this developer
