Very entertaining family HOPA.
A game that takes you to the entertainment parks through different situations: a fairy tale, a city of the future, and you can see on the map that has more, but I only played the free trial.
Cute game, great and colorful graphics appropriate sound, nice characters. Lovely places like the carousel and candy store!
Typical games parks besides many and varied puzzles, HOS, mini games, things to collect (gumdrops, tickets to play in "games stalls," cups for a mini game, with the task envelopes, etc.)
It has a map and a journal (book).
Not really challenging, excellent to play with children.

Best family game on Big Fish!
So glad I took a chance on this game. The hidden object scenes and puzzles were pretty standard, but the carnival mini games really stood out. The Skee Ball game was a lot of fun.
My kids enjoyed playing them too because they could choose casual mode if things got too difficult for them.
It has a great Disney atmosphere with the themed lands and it really reminded me of my childhood trips to the amusement park.

Great family game
I played this game with my 6 yr old daughter, who absolutely loves hidden object games, and she had a blast! I can't wait for the PC version so she can play it more often because we only have limited access to my husbands macbook.
My daughters favorite land was Whimsy Wonder, because she is a princess through and through...but there are 4 different lands to go through! A pirate land, super hero, and haunted/spooky land. The little mini games are what is really great about it. We've all played a ton of hidden object games, but the shooting gallery, skee ball and balloon popping were some of my daughters favorites.
All in all, it is a great game and one that I find myself playing alone, or with my daughter and we both equally enjoy it!
Bring on the PC version please!

Wonderful Game! Bringing you something new and REPLAYABILITY!
For starters, I work at a game development studio and had a chance to meet the guys at HeadRight Games before. Based on our conversation about the game, I was excited to see the final product, and they did not disappoint.
HRG takes some bold steps with their first commercial release, and that is bound to be met with some skepticism. You have to give them credit for staying the course and delivering. In a HOPA market saturated with dark and ominous settings, Amusement World! instead takes the player on a more lighthearted journey. This game is definitely appropriate for families to play, but don?t let a simple Princess deter you into thinking that you cannot enjoy this game at any age. Games are enjoyable based on so much more than a character or color palette. No one would ever purchase a Mario game if they simply looked at it and wrote it off as childish.
The amount of content in this offering is amazing. Not only do you have standard hidden object scenes, collectibles, and puzzle games, but the player also has access to 6 different mini-games. This is another bold step by HRG as they infuse some arcade style games into the genre. Based on my time playing, they were aware of the HOPA audience potentially having roadblocks with these segments and implemented a Casual mode. To progress in Casual, the player simply needs to attain 1 star on each mini-game, and the goals feel extremely attainable.
The beauty though is being able to return and replay any of these mini-games at any time (even after completing the main mission). Try to get 3 stars on all the Expert modes and attain the highest score possible! If you hate popping balloons, maybe Galaxy Ball will be more your style. I loved Shipwreck?d, Galaxy Ball, and Joker Toss myself.
The story is relatively minimalistic, so if that is what you deeply enjoy in your purchases, this game might not be for you. I?ve played a large number of the bigger games offered here on this site. There are high production values in those games, and they all have their quirks and nuances. What sets Amusement World! apart is its desire to add new features to the genre and give the player something to come back and replay even after the main quest is finished.
Games that try and change the mold are not always popular with everyone. At the same time, I appreciate the dedicated effort put into this game and the hours of enjoyment which I will no doubt get from my continued playing. This may be different from what you?re used to, but you may find yourself enjoying this gem.

Different From the Usual
I bought this game because it's a bit different from usual puzzle & hidden object games. Sort of like playing old time fair or carnival games. Not real hard HOS & mini games but not always easy. The story is silly, the character images funny: looks like the creators dressed their friends & family up. The hints are only good to locate hidden objects and not to tell you where to go or what to do next or to gather the "extras" (i.e. finding certain number of coins, etc throughout map locations. Got stuck a few times and no help to be found.

Hours of fun
I just finished Amusement World! and it was a real blast. The hidden object scenes are challenging and have great artwork. I especially liked the games and puzzles found throughout the four lands. And speaking of the four lands, each one is uniquely different and hard to pick a favorite, but mine would be Haunted Grove.

High-quality, low-cost game that's packed with variety!!
If you like hidden object games and like to challenge your hand-eye coordination skills both in one game then this game is perfect for you. The graphics are flavorful. The theme is an amusement park that has different storylines for each portion of the park which are kind of like levels. There are some classic games within the booths to play and some are very unique. Characters are relevant to each scene and task(game). This is a winner..
