Forbidden Secrets: Alien Town Collector's Edition
Great! Great! Great!
Another excellent HOG from my favourite developer!
This is the fresh take on the usual supernatural and fantasy themes set on Victorian era,here we have an adventure on alien town. The story was very well-written,great artwork and voice overs plus the mini games which I loved very much. This is what I'm looking for in HOG. There's quite amount of backtracking but it was rewarding and provided good length of gameplay you'll never be bored. Highly recommended!

Would like more Games from this developer
Great game many different puzzles - and they were not so difficult I had to skip. There is a hidden object in almost each scene and I really enjoyed hunting for it. Hopefully we will have more games from this developer.

Loved this game
I don't write reviews here, usually, but had to on this game. I judge books by their covers (I know that is bad) I was unsure about this game because of the title and general look of "cover." But it was a wonderful surprise, I enjoyed this game tremendously! Definitly worth buying and it was longer than I expected!

I just finished the game and as far as I'm concerned, it was near perfect. The puzzles were a bit too easy but other than that, this is by far the best game I've purchased. Great story line and I loved the fact that people looked wonderful and the VOs were spot on. The HOs were different and I really liked that. It makes for a nice change and a few of them you really have to look hard to spot. Graphics were clear and done to perfection to make the story line even better. There is a map which is great because it allows u to teleport from place to place and gives you locations where there is something for you to do. Without the map, you would spend a lot of time walking and less time playing. If you're looking for a game, don't pass this one up!

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!

I am amazed at how designers produce these games. The puzzles were unusual, but not impossible; the HOS were fun and didn't give me a headache. The producers and programmers of this game deserve a standing ovation.Even the sound effects were perfect. Moreover, I did not have to resort to the strategy guide. which is included.

It Just Doesn?t Get Any Better
It?s very rare that I come across a game that is as enjoyable, challenging, well put together and is customizable for those that may want it a little harder. I played on easy mode, because I usually like to enjoy the complete picture and environment of a game.
This game had wonderful hints, an interactive map, extra objects that you could find and puzzles that were well developed and thought out, along with beautiful scenery and music.
The skip button charged almost immediately for any puzzles that you may choose to skip, and the game play was long.
No glitches in the game or the graphics and everything seemed to be named exactly as it was in the hidden object scenes of which there were many, but not to the level of annoyance, more to the level of adding to the enjoyment of this game.
I can?t imagine any game being made better, more enjoyable or well scripted. The bonus play in the collector?s edition was equally as wonderful as the main game play.
