Mystic Legacy: The Great Ring
Rather fun for a silly little game. Game play is easy and nice, hint system good, music nice, HOGs simple, games easy. Graphics are a bit old school, but not bad at all. Didn't run into any voice-overs in the demo, but could have used a few here and there.
This is a nice little game for a no brainer, lazy day like today. I liked it and I will buy it and take advantage of the sale today. Thanks for the reviews.

I longed for more?
I was pleased to find a new developer here. I hoped to see a new stream of fresh ideas, unique features. Maybe I should not have had such high hopes.
I will start with the best parts of the game. And it is, of course, sense of personal participation. Quite a few games here can offer this. I will also praise the devs for the interactivity involved. HOS are much more fun with such an addition. I have seen better graphics in other games, this game can?t boast of extremely good visuals. The music was quite a surprising touch to the overall impression. Luckily, no repetitive compositions that make you sick and tired. On the whole, the game mechanics was satisfactory, no tech problems experienced.
My main complaint is easy HOS. I like the games with a pretty amount of challenge. it sounds weird but I do like to agitate my grey cells, to be busy around solving something entertaining and complicated at the same time. Unfortunately this game could not offer this to me. The storyline also should be better; did not like it, have seen many of this kind
I give the game 3 stars out of 5. May be the devs will be up with something more original.

Another 'Vampire Kidnaps My Friend' Game
I'll admit, the whole 'the vampire took my friend' idea is getting old. But from what I saw in the demo, the creators have made it rather interesting.
There is a lack of voice overs, so you're stuck reading the lines...it's a very quiet game, save for the small bits of music and sound effects. The artwork is decent. The hint button tells you what to do next.
I'm undecided on if I want to purchase the game or not. It wasn't a really exciting game and it was boring to me, but then I did enjoy a few things. But I encourage you to try the demo first! It could save your money!

Maybe a good game?
I was finding the demo interesting. However, then I came to a puzzle which I didn't want to solve with such a short time to do it. Found I couldn't even back out of it and do something else!
Maybe there was a way, but I couldn't see it.
Not a very good demo, making it hard to see if the game was fun or not!

I am not a puzzle player and rarely play HO games but this one "Looked" intriguing so i tried it and finished it in 55 miniutes not really worth the money, Was to easy even for me

NOT WHAT I EXPECTED
I feel I got less than I expected. There was little animation and no VOs. HOs and puzzles galore. The ending lead me to believe there will be a sequel but I sincerely hope the DEV will make much needed improvements. The hint button recharged quickly and tells you what to do next. You will be going from scene to scene but there is a map and, also, a journal. You have to collect lions in each scene but I'm still not clear on why. The storyline is a subject I enjoy but it didn't hold my interest. Perhaps I shouldn't be trying to play two games at the same time, going from one to the other. LOL

Hidden Object plus Adventure
I only played the demo, which for me lasted 57 minutes. As it ends at a particular point in the game, how fast you are able to play it will determine how long the demo is for you.
I thought the story was pretty lame up to the end of the demo, which ended on a mild cliff hanger, but it might get better. I had quite a bit of trouble with two of the HOGs due to small, dark objects. The puzzles were nothing new, but there was an even balance of puzzles and HOGs. .

I enjoyed this game. I would have liked it better if it didn't have a little glitch. If you dipped into the inventory too close to the bottom of the box, it changed the screen size. The task bar came up and one couldn't see the hints or all the items on the list for a search. This was pretty annoying.
The game was pretty classic HOG. I didn't need help on the searches or mini games. I did use help on my goals. It was sometimes hard to know where to go next. A couple of the mini games were new to me, therefore fun. I don't listen to sound so I can't comment on that. There was supposed to be an extra scene if the player found all the hidden lions while playing. It would have been nice to have a counter so players would know where the were in the process.
Graphics were clear and easy to see.
I only graded it as okay because of the glitch of having to restart so many times because I couldn't see the whole screen. Without that problem I would have liked it much better. I conditionally recommend it based on if you are willing to put up with the glitch.

Kind of goofy!
I only played the trial, and I don't think I'll buy it. The storyline and dialog were kind of goofy. Graphics were mushy, and the ho's were very, very quick and easy. I don't know if I'd recommend this for any serious player...nope, I wouldn't!

Short Preview Game 1/2 hour
Can't believe they only give you 1/2 trial game instead of the usuall hour - makes you wonder if they do that because the game is too short? Wish they talked during the game. I may buy this still but wil see.
