Time Relics: Gears of Light
Didn't Even Finish the Demo
I thought the artwork could have been better and the story line less fragmented. The music was ok. I only played the demo and won't buy the game.

an enjoyable game
I thoroughly enjoyed this game. you have to save time, hidden objects were dark and hard at times but you can click as much as you want with out anything getting mad at you which I really like, hint button is really helpful so no map is needed. You save time and defeat evil. I don't use sound so can't rate that but otherwise I found this game time well spent.

Good game but short
This is a rather easy game with an interesting story. There are 3 game modes, with sparkles also in the Advanced mode. The graphics are very clear, even in the HOS. The mini-games are interesting and not too challenging.
But without skipping, it took me less than 2 hours to finish.
I would recommend it with a coupon or as a DD.

not that bad
Has voice over and the graphics are not that bad. Music is ok. The hint button works good and fast. The HOS are good and the puzzles are ok. Some harder than others. You do go back and forth to find items and you do need more than 1 at times to progress. All in all not that bad of a game.

Moves too fast after trial
The game was challenging and interesting during the trial period. Once I bought it, the challenge wasn't as much. It took less than 2 hours to complete.

Nice little time filler...
This is perfect game to play after a long and drawn out hidden object adventure game. This is the light version of that and plays very nicely. It is quite linear, not a lot of back and forth going on. Once you leave a scene, you can go back to it as its not roped off but the tasks you need to do are forward and not in the old scenes. It has beautiful music, one of the best aspects of the game. Because the music is so beautiful, it makes the game a real delight to play.
This took me about 2-3 hours and after the last game I played, I welcomed something sweet, short and to the point. This game is a little strange though as objects from the past and present are combined into one. The hidden object scenes have a neat little feature that adds to the cuteness of this game. Love the sound effects it gives off too.
I would recommend this game to anyone who likes the developer VAST (Im a huge fan), wants a time filler game inbetween a big saga game or just wants a to the point, linear, light game to fill their afternoon. I really enjoyed this one. Cheers!

I think this game could have been better..
The basic story is good..
but its lacking depth or something...
I did not care for the surroundings at any time in the game..
this took away from Enjoyment for me..
I thought the game was just a bit too easy to make up
for what it lacked...
Its okay for a free game credit..
I would not suggest paying for it though...

Not all that impressed
I've got to stop being intrigued by the idea of time-travel based hidden object mystery games. Although some of them are pretty cool, Time Relics: Gears of Light left much to be desired. The concept was sound, and was not unlike the movie, My Science Project, where items from other time periods popped up inside the high school. In this game, objects and architecture from the Middle Ages suddenly pops up from in some town where we are playing as the leader of a time-keeping organization, sort of like the Time Lords and Ladies of Dr. Who.
Our role is not quite as broad as The Doctor's, as we are only to make sure time runs correctly on our own planet, and we keep the gears in check on the big clock of the world. The animations in the break scenes are done well here, giving the game an anime kind of feel to it. In our regular gameplay, that Asian influence is gone, and we are seeing the same old kind of animations, both two-D and attempted three-D we are used to seeing in most hidden object games. I do like the fact that hidden objects came up often, as many of these types of games are seeming to focus too much on the search for an item here and there to fix something and the logic puzzles and weird locks to be called hidden object mysteries any more. Even with the anime flashiness, Time Relics: Gears of Light did a better job of sticking to its root subject. Still, it did not impress me enough to continue on with it. There are lots of time-travel mystery games out there, and you do much better than Time Relics: Gears of Light
