Forbidden Secrets: Alien Town Collector's Edition
A good game
Just finished the demo:
-graphics were good, so visually enticing!
-story line not original but still bearable!
-mini puzzles and HO a wee bit on the weak side of challenging and altogether acceptable to keep one's brain functioning!
-didn't bother with the sound so cannot comment!
I will probably wait for the the "non collection" version before purchasing it altogether with a special offer on a sales weekend from BF.
Didn't feel it was really an immediate purchase for me and would suggest it might be a very good game for beginners and intermediate levels.

Not my favorite
Some games are great. This isn't one of them.

It's Ok... In A Good Way
Forbidden Secrets: Alien Town does not live up to the standards the other reviewers have set, but by the end of my free trial it began to get good.
Strategy guide and map
3 different types of HOS. Junkpile. Place the Item, and the HOS where some items needed to be used to do other things in the scene.
Really good voice-overs
Good hint and skip recharge
2 modes, Casual and hard
Storyline. Started off really boring, but towards the end of my trial got really good.
As I've said, the gane started off boring.
Puzzles. Some were alright, but some I didn't like.
A bit of going back and forth.
Sometimes I found it hard to figure out what to do.
Not really worth CE money. Before playing, I checked the extras, and all there was was art and soundtracks! There is a bonus chapter but I wont be sticking around.
For those who are wondering, I would wait for the SE due to limited extras. But overall, this was a nice game. One I'd recommend the trial for.

Didn't Like It.
Ten minutes of the demo was enough for me to decide not to purchase this game. The scenes were small, dull and uninteresting. Nah.

Great story,Voices, Dreary,dull colors used in all graphics
I own all of this Game Developers games and I appreciate their quality game testing, they do not use their customers for beta testing!
I love the storyline it is very interesting.
I love the map and the way we can jump instantly to location.
I love the voice overs they are very well done.
I own every game from this Developer and the majority are beautiful colored graphics with beautiful animation. It is a shame the G.D did not continue to use beautiful colored graphics in this game. This Game could have been so much more interesting to play if they had changed colors in the graphics and used more animation. I hate the bland lifeless colors used in all the graphics. The story could show a deserted town and remained interesting by using beautifully colored graphics. In my opinion the graphics are dull and lifeless not beautifully done like in Game Developers other games.
I hate all the mechanical assembly required, it is not fun for me.
I hate the Game Designer chose to use the most depressing, dark bluish graphics even in the hidden object screens it takes the fun out of the hidden object scenes they are dreary,lifeless, static graphics.
This game has a interesting storyline I buy games for the storyline especially with voices. I will not be buying Collectors Edition for the above reasons. I own every collector Edition thus far, but I will wait for this to go on sale. It is a shame because the voices in the game are very well done. I hope the Game Developer will not make this a habit of using dark, dreary, lifeless, colors and boring mechanical assembly of objects in future games. In my opinion a little of mechanical assembly is tolerated but this game carries it to the extreme.
