Halloween: The Pirate's Curse
Fun and Colourful
This is a great game for halloween.
The colors, drawings and graphics are superb.
Lots of Hidden Objects scenes, a good variety of puzzles and a few little extras thrown in.
The junk pile HOs are very well done due to the drawings and bright and bold colors. Beautiful.
The game is timed, but not to worry, when the time if up, you can still finish the HO scene or puzzle. You don't have to start over. So take your time. This is a buy for me. !!

What a fun ride!
Being as I love anything concerning creepy carnivals or circuses, this was a definite must-see for me. Although it's obviously aimed towards the younger crowd or those who just prefer a lighter feel to their spooky games instead of the usual dread, this was just a good time all around even though it's based only on the one hour trial. I've played a lot of HO games and didn't find the HO scenes here to be junkpiles at all. In fact, you could see quite clearly the background, and the objects were just scattered about in a challenging but not cluttered way. I liked looking for the hidden item with the magnifying glass as it was a different approach from the usual one of finding the one item written in a different color from the rest of the list. I enjoyed the bright colors throughout, the cute animations and especially the background sounds of the people, music and monsters that were there. It reminded me of the carnival sounds in Madame Fate where you hear the barker's shouts and the noise of the crowd, and in this game you hear similar sounds that put you right there in the middle of it all. Absolutely delightful!
I ignored the timer as I relished just taking in all the details of each scene and looking for that impish vampire that I frequently forgot about. :) Including real people in the HO scenes was another positive and it was fun seeing them dressed in their Halloween costumes. The puzzles were the usual standard fare that we've all seen before...jigsaws, concentration, gear switching, find the differences, but they were mixed up in such a creative way that you never got bored and could always skip if you wanted to. Both the hint button and skip line filled quickly so you move along at a fast pace. I don't know how far along I got in the game, but I loved it enough to put it on my "to buy" list and will wait for the next sale. It's definitely not challenging enough for the serious gamer, but for the casual gamer like myself who likes to take the time to savor all the sights and sounds that this game provides, I think you'll enjoy it very much. As always, demo it first. I found it to be more than a little delightful.

Fun Hidden Object game
This is another great halloween games. It is a hidden object game. It is hard to find the hidden object, but still fun. The graphics and sound are great. I would recommend this game.

As Fun As Last Years!
I love games like this when I want to just have an easy and fun time on a HOG.
Bright and colorful, a smack to the senses, this game is for the whole family but still have a bit of a challenge. Some of the items are fairly well hidden.
Again, as I said about the last one you don't purchase this because its an elaborate MCF type of HOG, you buy it for the the fun.
Makes you feel like a kid again. I am beyond trick or treating for years but this brings the joy back.

Gets me in the mood!
I'm heading to Tucson tomorrow to help take my grandson trick-or-treating for the first time, and this is getting me in the mood! It's very similar in style to the one this developer put out last year, and I enjoyed that one, too. Both have great spooky music, colorful fun graphics, and lots of variety in puzzles. While this may be considered a kids' game, I, along with many other adults, am enjoying it as well. While there is a timer, one can completely ignore it and enjoy the scenery. I recommend!

Fun HO game for Halloween
Graphics great as well for audio. The puzzles had enough difficulty to have fun. Probably not a great challenge for the "expert" players. It was just a lot of fun for the Holiday.
Liked the hidden objects hidden in another object.

Under rated HO Game
I did the trial, then I purchased the game. This is a true hidden object game. You get the HO page, then you get a mini-game. No flipping back and forth through 15 locations finding things you have no clue what to do with. It takes you time to find some of the items, but that is what makes a good game. Hints are liberal, and this is a game that makes you keep going just to see what the next one will be.
This was my kind of HO game. I am having so much fun with it and glad that I didn't let the 3 star rating keep me from doing the trial on it.

Great Halloween Fun!
Totally loved this game! Have to really concentrate to find a lot of the hidden objects with extras to find as well for extra points. Lots of different types of puzzles to solve. Graphics are great with lots of spooky halloween sounds and music. Cursor was a bit wonky at times. A game you can leave then go back to. Would love to visit a fair like that!

This is one of my favorite games. This might just be my thought, but this game was... Really good! I have already played the first game, and I am looking forward to finishing this game. And when I say it's good, I mean it's really good. I would recommend this game to anyone who likes the following: Beautiful animation, impressive cast, and hidden objects, along with puzzles. This game is a great pick around Halloween. But if you don't like my review, then here's a tip....Enjoy!!!
