Forbidden Secrets: Alien Town
Really, good HOG/adventure game
This is a game that has a well thought out story line that keeps you interested throughout the whole game. Not like a lot of other games where the story line is just an afterthought to bring you in for the first 10 min. then 100 HOG scenes, and finally a cut-off ending. By then I usually can't remember if I'm playing an "orphanage," "mad scientist", "witch" or "collection of souls" game and I usually don't even care anymore. This game on the other hand had an interesting story line the whole way through. Gives me back hope..

Better Than Most
I think this game is better than about 3/4 of the games on Big Fish. It's a solid game (unfortunately for the SE crowd, the bonus story was good) and quite playable.
The NPCs are good and the storyline is different than most. I get tired of the gruesome and familiar (skulls, skeletons, witches, etc.) and enjoy it when someone departs from that.
The game, while having HOS, has a lot of adventure aspects as well.

A superb game to spend a coupon on!
This is such a great game, although one has to play it quite awhile before you get into the "meat of the story" and care enough to keep going.Little guessing about going back and forth. It's a great SE. Graphics are a bit computer appearing but not bad. Best part is the map will jump you anywhere.There is no need for an SG and it's great because the map tells you if there's a morphing object in a location that you might have missed. Objects obtained from HOGS are used fairly soon although the journal helps a lot with some later needed clues. . The music is not great but not obnoxious. Nice HOG mixes of search as well as put the object in the right place. Also has achievements such as find 40 morphing objects which the map tells you there's one in that location if you've missed one. Not a lot of puzzles but they're decent. Tend to be on the "arcade side" which is not my preference but not too tough. The later stages of the game are the most fun so don't get put off by the early stuff. A great buy for an SE and well worth the value of those coupons! Has nice longevity for those who want to play a bit after work to "decompress." Very enjoyable.

lots of puzzles & very looooong!
I really loved this game! There were many many areas to explore. It is a very long game, so well worth your money. I thought the graphics were amazing, and the storyline was a little different. There were lots of puzzles and some hidden object scenes. Most of the puzzles were fairly easy. The only negative would be that it has a map that tells you where to go next. I would rather investigate and figure things out myself. But even with this map, it still took me several hours to finish. I loved it!

WOW!! ANOTHER GREAT GAME!
WOW! A great game with many pluses. Has everything you would want in a game of this kind. Great story line with no cartoonish feel to it. Has journal, map,skip, hint, all of the things that help make a good game. I especially liked the way the hint would take you where you needed to go and recharged really fast. Games are not too hard,but I really liked the story so much could not stop playing so sometimes I would skip so I could find out what was next. lol Don't let bad reviews stop you from getting this game. I don't usually write reviews, but I had to on this one. Wonderful game. Well worth a buy. I definately recommend this game.

I chose this game because I play all of the ones that involve creepy children. I wasn't expecting anything very different from what the normal games on the site are, but I was pleasantly surprised. I can usually figure out the plot of games, but I didn't really this time until the last second. I was entertained throughout. It was kind of easy if you've done a lot of HO games before. I played on casual. This game is amazing!!!

Want More Like This
I really, really liked this game. There was actually a plot that made sense. The atmosphere was great. The puzzles were pretty good. I liked the fact that once an area was finished it was finished - no having to go back later to look for more HOS. Hope to see more of this caliber in the future.

I had a great time playing this game. The storyline was awesome. It was like a good book with an interesting twist at the end. It reminded me of a movie Gary Sinise starred in a long while back. Anyway, the hidden object scenes were fun. I always liked the HOG that gives you objects to match up with the correct "counterpart", so to speak. I also like games that have the "hidden beyond" objects. And for the first time, I found them all. Of course it helped a lot with the map that was provided. Not only did the map allow you to go directly to a scene you already visited, but it also let you know which scenes you had tasks to fulfill & which ones had "hidden beyond objects". SO SO grateful for the map in this one! Not only for the former mentioned reasons. But also because there were so may scenes, it would have taken forever to travel back to certain areas! All in all, a great game to purchase! Go get it!

Surprisingly well done game
Wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. Spent a coupon because I really needed to before it expired and was surprised at how much I enjoyed the game. Morphing objects; interactive map and a decent plot you could follow. Better than a few games I've regrettably paid for lately. I'm not a sci fi fan but that didn't matter. It's good game play; good diary, etc. Definitely one to try. You'll be surprised.
