What A Fun Game - A Definite More Than Meets The Eye This review is for the whole game playing in advanced mode. This is a HOPA (hidden object, puzzle, adventure). The story: You take on the role of Sarah Green who gets her first case in solving the mystery of the missing town doctor Dr. Magnus. 5 chapters and I was in chapter 2 when demo time was up. 2 play modes: Casual/Advanced: and Advanced mode just has sparkles for the HOS (hidden object scenes) only. Gears will appear for placement of inventory items and a magnify glass for other areas of interest like reading stuff that goes into your journal. There are no voice overs as text/dialogue will be in boxes on the screen to read. Map: There isn't one but not really needed in my opinion. While this game does overall have a lot to do and places to go however to move on to the next chapter you must complete everything in the current chapter as it won't let you move forward until you do. Once you move on to the next chapter the previous chapter is closed. Yes there is some traveling back/forth but not a "wandering all over the place" type of game. HOS (hidden object scenes): I counted 23 scenes for the whole game. All found by word list. They're not interactive. Pretty clear for the most part but a couple of scenes a bit on the dark side along with some small items however I only used 1 hint for this part of the game. Hint: Takes 3 minutes. Can be used outside of the HOS. Sometimes I found it helpful. This seemed to be a hit and miss here as at times it would direct me to do something but I didn't have the inventory to do it yet. Puzzles: The usual run of the mill such as rotate the rings, assemble a newspaper (like a jig saw puzzles), arrange the books, just to name a few. Can be skipped and takes about 3 minutes as well. I skipped the rotate the rings as I don't like these. There's also 21 achievements and find the 25 Horus Eyes throughout the game. My overall impression: I must say when I first saw this game I didn't think too much of it but decided to "give it a whirl" anyhow. I'm so glad I did. What a fun game. For starters the graphics/artwork is just beautiful along with the characters. A very well done here. The story line itself was good while yes being done before however I think this could of been worked on just a bit more. As mentioned if you're attentive to the story should be able to figure out the outcome by the half way point. I just found this to be a pretty relaxing fun game as I really enjoyed the game play for the most part with a nice balance of HOS, adventure, and puzzles though I did get hung up a couple of times cause for me a couple of the areas it wasn't so obvious when something had to be picked up as I had to really move my mouse/cursor around the screen to find the areas and the items as they were pretty blended into the scene. As for game length: Took me just a little over 4 hours. Depended on your game play you may get more or less than this. Overall I give this 4 stars. I knocked this down a star as that hint I found annoying how it would direct me to do something but I didn't have the inventory to do it so have to wait for it to charge back up again. The story line while good as I mentioned could of been worked on just a bit more. Also while not a deal breaker for me since this is a SE version of a game I do think voice overs and the HOS being interactive would of really added to this game but a really good game if you are looking for something fun and relaxing. Thank you Big Fish and developer of the game. As always, give it a whirl and decide for yourself. September 9, 2012
Oh what fun! Based on the demo (Advanced difficulty level), I'm sorry I missed the weekend sale. This game definitely made my wish list. Hope I can stay off the buy page 'til the Halloween sale, but the good time I had playing the Dreamatorium demo may overcome my willpower! And yes - it's wonderful to play a HOG Adventure that's not dark and dreary for a change. Love the eerie games, but it's great to have a break and we haven't really had a good fun break since the last Snark Busters. September 10, 2012
A lot of fun once you get into it! What a nice little game. As you can tell, I liked it. Yes, a lot of shoe leather was used, but it was fun. Graphics were nice, game play very nice, music soothing. Good hint system (recharges fairly quickly), but not much help unless there is actually something to do in whatever area you are in. A little different story for a change. At first, I didn't think I would care for it at all, but once you get into the game, it's very different. It sort of drags you into it. Looks to be a fairly long SE (what a shocker!). We've had so many duds lately, that this one was refreshing. Needed a litle voice over here and there to keep the story moving. The only thing I didn't like about it was the fact that you could not switch to the system cursor. I don't care for those big, clunky cursors that so many devs want to use. A magic wand would have worked though. Anyway, I am going to use a game credit on this one. I found it quite enjoyable. Thanks for the reviews. September 9, 2012
More fun than I first thought it might be! A bit slow to grab me, I realized about half way through the trial hour I was liking this alot! The pokey pace of the progress bar did give a lukewarm first impression, but otherwise, the game worked flawlessly. I like the easy-going feel. I think they expected us to explore and find the active areas. I really do enjoy poking around to see what I can see, and if there's a click penalty, my exploration never triggered it. The Hint Button is helpful, even outside of HOS, so that's a plus. I like the hand-drawn graphics. The music I'm not so fond of, but that's what the separate game sliders are for, so can turn that down but still keep other game sounds. There are achievements. To see those, click on the Jewels in the lower left corner. I frequently replay a game to collect those I may have missed on the first round, so that is a plus for me. All in all, it's a smooth, peaceful sort of game -- no tearing my hair around with dark gray gross scenes. I like it and I bought it. September 9, 2012
Over all Not bad I played the demo which hooked me, but then was a little disappointed of the length of the game. Some of the HOG's were a little dark but over all the graphics were good, the music was'nt too annoying and there were no Cutscenes, Yea! ( I hate games that waste my time with cutscenes). You cannot use a Hint for the HOG's, only in the Normal scenes. Not a bad game, just not very long. September 9, 2012
Relaxing bonus punch wreekend game I won't go into detail like sportygal2009 - but I did find it a fun and relaxing game-and the 2forone bonus weekend purchase helped. September 9, 2012
Good The storyline is pretty much predictable but it's still something I enjoyed. As for the game itself, it was pretty laid back and the music helps relax as well. The puzzles were very easy and the hidden picture games were good. September 10, 2012
Fun Game with Nice Story Line As with the other reviews I enjoyed the change of pace with a nice outcome to the story. Plenty of HOS to find. The only thing I didn't like was that it took a long time to download each chapter. It also took the same amount of time to download if you Quit and went back to the game later. If it wasn't for that I would have rated it 5 stars. It was just a fun game to play and I did purchase it. September 10, 2012
Magically Unusual Thouroughly enjoyable, different from most Hidden Object Games. It will hold your attention, the graphics and art are amazing, and beautiful. September 10, 2012
Wonderful I enjoyed this game so much I bought it when the demo ended. This has just about everything. Two game modes to play in, minimal voice-overs, beautiful graphics and wonderful music. The HO scenes are really nice; clear and easy to see with very well hidden objects. Not buried in darkness but truly hidden. The puzzles are good; easy but good. The story follows a novice detective on her investigation of the disappearance of Dr. Magnus. There are subtle hints along the way that make you go "hmm, I wonder". The search becomes more involved as you go along. You collect 20 Eyes of Horus as you travel and you collect achievement trophies right from the beginning. I highly recommend this game.
