Girls with Secrets
Girls With Secrets
1) Poor graphics, static and repetitive scenes and even objects to find!
2) Nonsense and illogical objects, eg, finding a squirrel! Why? It would tell u what happened, made a nice pet, kept your lawn clean?
3) Every scene is permeated with lots of objects much like a rubbish dump, do people, museums (Forbid), just dump their things that way? Objects are just simply flung all over the scenes and given to this HOS game, just for the sake of making it HOS
4) Static characters and instead of voice over was just text
5) Last but not least, the game requires u to install .Net 4, (which I had already installed, so it skipped, but the install was for an earlier version), Direct X (which it skipped, coz I got Direct X 11). The game CANNOT work with higher version of these applications installed and will return HOG...exe not working error!
Girls with Secrets could be renamed Developers without Design Ideas.
Those who love straight HOS may find it ok, since it had lots of HOS (repetitive in natures, eg, museum, bar entrance was repeated at least 2-3x during my 1 hr trial). And try not to play or install this game on a machine with the latest updates to software. Remember its a very very old version of HOS (possibly frozen since dinosaur age), that developers had released, thus a dinosaur age PC will work better

This is a terrible game
This game was the most boring and poorly put together piece of junk I have ever seen. I can't count the number of misspellings and misidentified items in this game. I spent a long time looking for a "cake jar", I even tried clicking on the cookie jar thinking they had made a mistake..they had but when I clicked on the cookie jar it didn't go away so I kept looking until I used the hint and lo and behold, cookie jar!
Something I had never seen before were puzzles without any instructions, nada, none. What? Did they forget to put them in? Was it too much trouble?
I know they will never publish it but I wrote the company about how terrible this game was and I hope they take heed because for myself, I will avoid playing any games by them.
Save your self the money and the aggravation. DON"T buy it.

Poor Example of a Game
This game is horrible. When you click on an object it doesn't work. It is bad when the objects are not even spelled correctly. It was suppose to be a mystery solver but the dialog doesn't match the screens.

This is 98% hidden object and 2% weak story. In general the game was ok to play once you get past the numerous spelling errors. It seems obvious the game either was translated from another language other than English or the creators did not write English well and no one did a word edit. Some of the objects actually were written in another language and luckily I can speak multiple languages so I knew what was being asked. (ananas = pineapple) Among the numerous spelling errors were also the confusing words in the list. a T-square was a ruler, Oxyfen cylinder was an oxygen tank, a hard cap was a hard hat, napkins were tissues (kleenex), Each hidden object had to be clicked in one exact spot. I spent much time clicking an object in various places before it would be picked up. Sometimes I thought I could not find it and after hitting hint, low and behold it was an item I had already clicked on but apparently not in the exact spot needed. In spite of all the errors I actually did not mind playing the game. If you are looking for a story then this game is not for you. If you like un-ending hidden object scenes, then this is for you. I give it one star.

5 yr game
this is the worst game i have ever played if i would have played the trial i would have never ever bought it, but the description makes it interesting, but boy is that not so true
it truly stinks for a hidden object game my 5 yr granddaughter could play this with ease. and that my friends is a very bad omen for a game for adults, hidden object games are my passion, if you want to be nice big fish you could give my game credit back for this one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a basic HOG, but it is full of spelling mistakes, typos and bad grammar. Apparently no one proofed it before it went live.

Not only was this game boring and non-challenging, there were grammar and spelling errors. Racke=rake? Really?
Don't waste your time.

Play online games...not this!
If you want to just click box after box of hidden object scenes, it would be easier and cheaper to just play a game online. You get told at the beginning, in an odd manor, that you are trying to figure out who killed Amy. In the hour trial, that is all of the story I got. I never actually clicked on the map because when you finished one scene, you are shown approx 8 boxes (scenes) to choose from and only one is unlocked. I figured with such a simple game, that would be all the map showed. I may be wrong, and from an earlier review it sounds like I couldn't have done it anyway. You will lose your progress if you leave any scene. So if you have one or 2 items that you can't find, and you go to the map or anything else, you will have to restart the scene. I often like to play straight HOS but this was the most boring game ever. There was no reasoning behind what you were looking for in the scenes, no connection to the 'crime' or the 'investigation' and the actual objects found. No going into a house then a room, just a box you click that tells you that you are in the shed. Scenes are very clear, but item names are not. And some items were so far off the screen you couldn't see them. Will not be buying this game!
