Great Game Good story,lot's of HOS, quick fun mini games, easy navigation with no map necessary. Visuals were excellant. Really enjoyed this game. Will look forward to the sequel. January 17, 2013
Suspenseful This game makes you want to continue until the end. December 3, 2012
Worth the CE price? (Based on Demo) I enjoyed the demo. But I'm wondering if the game is worth the CE price. I'd say **only** if the game lasts longer than most. Because... No map. No achievements. No hidden extras to find while navigating through the game. No extra anything except SG and Bonus Chapter. That being said, if I don't buy the CE I will get the SE because this is a well done game. The story line is presented in a way that keeps you interested. The HOS are not cluttered. No click penalty. Many objects are hidden in plain sight. You'll spend a few minutes looking for something only to find it right in front of your eyes. I really, really like the graphics. I found myself 'mousing' all over the screen just because the scene was that intriguing. I wanted to see if something was hidden in every corner. By the way, you should mouse all over the screen, because you might miss something. ;) I also like the voice-overs. They are believable. And I enjoyed the environment sounds. Custom difficulty menu!!!! Choice of Short - Medium - Off for Hint/Skip. Tutorial on/off. Visuals on/off - I assume that means sparkles. Speaking of sparkles: HOS are indicated with sparkles, but nothing else. (I left the Visuals off.) OK, back to the length: The SG shows 4 chapters + Bonus. It follows you as you play, but I wasn't able to scroll beyond my point in the game. I was trying to see how many pages were in the guide to give me an idea of length. Because I really really like this game. I just don't want to plunk down CE price for the usual 3 or 4 hours of play. I could care less about wallpapers, screen savers and concept art. I will be checking back to look for reviews from players who have bought and completed the game. Because if I find out the game has good length I probably will get the CE. December 2, 2012
Puppet master stealing children' souls........... Played 30 minutes, Casual - 2 modes, casual, advanced - Integrated SG which shows 4 chapter + bonus play - You can only access the extras after completing the game - Notebook, you collect pages with information throughout the game, they go straight into your notebook. - No map - Voice overs - Hint refill in 12 seconds, casual and is useful outside H0 - Skip button - H0, you don't interact, clear but items are sometimes really small and not too easy to find - Usual mini games, nothing very new - Good graphics A puppet master is stealing the souls of your children. Will you be able to solve the case ? Shame this game appears after Nutcracker, it looks like a good game and I've liked it enough to buy. December 2, 2012
Overloaded with hogs By the time I was half way through this game I was fed up with to many hogs. I know the items have to be hidden but some of the items were to small, others were very pale and very difficult to see. The strategy guide could not be enlarged so that was difficult to look at.If you like hogs this is for you. I like puzzles rather than hogs now and the puzzles were not to difficult.This could have been better. December 8, 2012
Pretty OK Fairly easy, but still not without its merits. Too many HOS, and the HOS are not crisp enough visually. December 2, 2012
A Grimm Tale I played the full Demo and really enjoyed it I had no problem with the HO's they were done in a slightly different way you had to be sure to check reflections in a mirror or water in a fountain but it wasn't too dark yes sometimes a lipstick seems odd but if it is too for the time would we be able to recognise it . I have more problem when the items are translated and make no sense ! The storyline was straight out of a Grimm fairy tale and thats the point you have to solve the mystery behind the fairy tale. Acting as A detective every so often you are sent or find telegrams that point you in the right direction to defeat the puppet master and undo the magic . Overall I really enjoyed what I played the graphics were crisp and clear I played in the easier mode because I am not a big fan of the HO's and they can waste time on the demo I think I will probably buy now and use my game credits I enjoyed it enough to want to finish it .Give it a try you may just enjoy it December 2, 2012
Diverting HOG The storyline is a variation on the Pied Piper of Hamelin - freeing lost souls who were abducted as children. The graphics are clear, the HO scenes extremely straightforward with no two stage HO's to find. Mini games are again straightforward. There are no achievements or collectable items. The bonus chapter ties up some loose ends. Not an enormous challenge but will provide distraction for a few hours December 6, 2012
Wait for the SE version, then grab it! I've just finished playing the demo and, since you have the game outlined for you in previous posts, I would like to comment on aspects other than story line. The graphics are not breathtaking, they are good - perhaps very good would be a better description. The HO games are wonderfully bright! The are uncluttered and the items are fairly, cleverly hidden. Voiceovers are easy to listen to but, if you are a fast reader, there isn't any way to fast-forward the dialog - your only option is to skip the scene altogether. Puzzles are, for the most part, not difficult and inventory use is clear. I enjoyed the demo but will wait for the SE version. Lately, few games merit the CE cost. I wish players such as myself who collect HOGs as a way to relax and enjoy some quiet time would collectively tell the creators of these games that they are losing focus. The games seem to be morphing into another genre and I can only say that such a move will never work. Stick with the customer base you have and continue to bring back the light into the dark and gloomy games! Oh how I wish for another Royal Trouble! December 2, 2012
A quiet game for a quiet morning I read some of the reviews before I down loaded the demo. I agree that there are no bells and whistles on this game, no achievements, no morphing or hidden items to find, and no map, but I found this game enjoyable. The storyline of the evil puppeteer is being used again, but with enough twist so that it is not the same as others. I also liked the fact that the "Grimm Brothers" were involved. There were a number of good things about this game that made up for the lack of "sophistication" that is now expected of Gogii and the other collector's editions. The hint button filled quickly and can be used for where to go if you get lost. There are two levels, casual and advanced. Since I played casual, there were sparkles for what to do and where to go. The strategy guide was fairly well done, but not as complex or complete as some of the others I have encountered. The art was beautiful, but a little dark as it should be since this is happening at night and the town has been enshrouded with magic. The hos were not overly junked up, and some of the items were on the small side, but did not need to use the hint button (used it intentionally to find out how fast it filled), The mini games were not difficult, even simplistic, but they may get harder as the game progresses. The music was not annoying and just kind of drifted in the background and did not notice it even though it was playing. The storyline progressed nicely and made me want to continue to find out what happens. All in all, this game is not for everyone but a nice interlude of quiet game playing. December 2, 2012
