Forbidden Secrets: Alien Town Collector's Edition
Farmer Bill called...and he wants his crops back!
~ Storyline - compelling and suspicious - new to me - want to buy the full version eventually to see how it all turns out.
~ HOS - different puzzles in each one - kept things interesting.
~ Graphics and Music - appropriately creepy with bonus dreary ambiance.
~ Map - very helpful - indicates where tasks can be completed,how much of the map is left to open up and areas where "Beyond Objects" remain.
<> When I have to use the HINT button, I prefer to have a clear text message not an area surrounded and illuminated.
<> I thought that the main character was a dude. :P

I am a fan of Alawar Games and this one is no exception. The concept of deserted city is not the most original but they combine it with alien and science fiction. I don't really keen with the idea since I don't like sci-fi. The atmosphere of the game is creepy until I found some aliens in it and I kind of lost interest. The game story itself minus the alien is very good, very helpful map and hints, and great voice overs although the characters seem to move very awkwardly. Still, I love this game and I love Alawar but I hope no more alien story in near future!

Brilliant! Simply brilliant!
What a fantastic and amazing adventure game! It has everything to keep you on your toes... great storyline, great graphics, great animations, great puzzles, great music. It also has a map which teletransport you wherever you need to go. I loved this game and didn't want it to end! I highly recommend it

I don't very often rate a game. Especially HOGS and adventure games. I have so many of these games and I love them! This game is an especially good one! One of the best games I have ever played!

Great story line, good graphics, edge of my seat don't want it to finish kind of game.

After playing the trial version (SE) I just knew I had to have this game! The elements in the storyline are perfect which keeps your interest held for hours of intrige, suspense and fun. I started out on the 'easy' level as some of the scenes are quite challenging. Hidden Object scenes do not lack. The graphics are, as my son would say, SICK. I was never really into alien conspiriacy stories and sci-fi and at first bypassed this game when it was displayed on the homepage, however, I'm glad I gave this a chance.
So due to the fact that Big Fish was having one of their 30% off specials and you earn 3 punches on your card when you purchase CE games, I was able to earn my freebie sooner than expected, so thanks Big Fish for the good times!

I always swore I would review the first game set on a spaceship with a five.
Liked the game and the creepy children.
Next up: First game to literally make me carry around a kitchen sink.

The Perfect Game!
At last a game that gets a thumbs up right across the board. Loved it. Huge game with loads to do. You need a good memory (or you can cheat a bit with the map). HOS's and scenes where you add items have just the right amount of challenge. Great graphics. Don't play with sound so don't know about that element. No glitches whatsoever. Even bonus game is good. Best game in weeks.

A super production and well designed game in every way, artwork, presentation, VO and music. The story is intriguing and is well presented, except at the very end which left me a little unsure as to what happened - maybe I'm slow? The HOS and puzzles are good, with IA HOS as well as put objects back HOS. There is a lot of back and forth, but the IA map lets you get around that. The in-game HINT also works very well. You don't really need the SG. The map even shows where the "beyond" objects are located, although there doesn't seem to be any real reason to collect them. The bonus chapter is a prolog and isn't required to understand the main story unlike some games. I highly recommend this game, but I think the SE would be a better buy.

very fun game
I really enjoyed this game. The visual and sound quality was excellent. The voice overs were excellent too. I love the extra game play in HO games and the mini games were not overly hard. The story kind of made me laugh a little...moon people, really. I found that funny. A good long game that gave you a map to jump from place to place. I really like that in these games. So I give this game a high score just because it was really fun and interesting. Good job BF....
