Not too bad! Exceptional graphics and game play. Monkey's constant chatter got very annoying very quickly. Music got very old very quickly as well. Easy games and HOGs. Story line was no different, so far, but it wasn't bad. Can't add anything more than what everyone else has said, except that the game didn't grab me, but was interesting enough to make me want to purchase and see what happens. Short and to the point for a change. As always, try it for yourself and decide if it's a game for you. We all have different tastes in games. Thanks for the reviews. October 11, 2012
Nicely different My only negative on this game was the lip sync being off. My pluses were many. This was an SE, but had a final, separate chapter anyway, which gave it as much length as many CEs. The ambient music was perfect. The graphics were nice, nothing too dark or obscure. The storyline was different and interesting. It didn't leave you wondering the point of the plot. The puzzles were just difficult enough to not make you want to pull your hair out. I enjoyed it enough to write a review. Games have to be either really good or really bad for that. April 24, 2013
Get Your MONEYS WORTH!! Wonderful Creative Story that had me Entertained all the way to the end of the Bonus Chapter Another SE that is Really a CE from Artifex Mundi!! I dont agree with those who say this game is short.. it was not at all short in my book i didn't time my gameplay but it kept me Engaged for a full day while i was simultaneously spring cleaning my house.. and the Bonus Chapter is Very Generous... This game is Loaded with HO scenes which is Not to my liking However it is an AweSome Fun Adventure Game and i can live with the HO Scenes since i did not pay CE price And to their credit the HO scenes are well done.. Rarely is anything too small in their HOS or hidden in pitch black darkness I doubt many will regret buying this game You def get your moneys worth!! March 29, 2013
VERY NICE GAME I wouldn't buy the full version, but it was pretty amazing--the graphics and overall game design was awesome--twists and turns--scenes you thought you knew morphed into other more evil, wicked scenes. Unlike anything I've ever played. But, as I said, I wouldn't buy it. I just don't like run around games to solve puzzles in other locations. There is no reason to play these games more than once.

Very Good Creepy Game You are a detective at a creepy carnival searching for a missing mother who was swept away into the hall of mirrors. Very good SE game. There are 3 game modes. No penalties for rapid clicking that I noticed. Story line is fairly simple. Mini games are not too difficult, which I like with me being new to this genre. Bright hidden object scenes with no difficulty finding the objects. You get a little helper monkey who can climb into areas that are inaccessible to you. Cute little guy :) There are also achievements to earn. Game play was smooth, no problems. I enjoyed the game. Definite buy for me. March 21, 2013
Decent but Short My kid and I got into the storyline quickly, and we enjoyed the novelty of the monkey helper. We'd never played a game with an animal helper before this one, so my kid thought it was great. I think the game could have been a bit longer and could have done more with the storyline, as the ending was kind of boring and predictable. Overall, good game, though. March 18, 2013
Too much back and forth I did enjoy this game. good story line Great graphics I found that I was using the hint button a lot just to know where to go next. There is a lot of back and forth which is why it didn't get a 5 rating the HO's were challenging enough without being too difficult I was able to finish this in one day playing it between kids and dinner It isn't always obvious what you are supposed to do next which is frustrating. All in all though I'm glad I bought the game and would recommend it February 26, 2013
Good game, although some HOS's are repeated? Me and my younger sister played this together, and we LOVED it, it's one of the best story lines we've seen in a while, and having an adorable monkey companion is a great bonus! :D Only complaint I have with this game is that it seems that some of the hidden object scenes were repeated - we'd have a second hidden object scene at the same scene as the last one, and instead of shuffling it, 80% of the items would be the same and in the same spot, this probably happened 2/3 times when we went back to a spot we'd had a HOS before. Just thought this was a weird little quirk, and wanted to mention it. February 13, 2013
Biggest Bang for the Buck These days when it seems that SE's are becoming extinct it was great to play this SE. Maybe a bit short, or it could have just been that I was enjoying myself. Good storyline and plenty of HO's. What really made me recommend it was that there was a 'Last Chapter' and it was a decent length, but I didn't have to pay for a CE. When you pay for this game you get all that it's worth. February 9, 2013
