The Missing: Island of Lost Ships
I love this game.. Herbert is SO CUTE!! kudos to the devs for giving this game a bit of flare. This game has a bit of a different feeling to it while playing, it's hard to pinpoint precisely but it's just not the usual, click it, use it, move back, & repeat. I like the map, too, which is interactive. And you don't have to wait a few months for the skip/hint buttons to recharge. Incidently, i had no probs with waiting for it to load between scenes.

It ran ragged on my computer. May be a to much for my ole computer, but the characters were great. The story line was interesting. Made me want more. I got stuck on the flag puzzle and used up my time. :( The music was good and the graphics were great. Can hardly wait to finish this journey. Can hardly wait to know more of what the Kraken is about.
A bit on the comical side which is endearing me to the characters. Nice smooth HO's with some hidden in the hidden scene. Little surprises here and there.

Fun and engaging
This game was very engaging and pulled me in from the start. The HOS were not simply junk piles but actual scenes. They seemed to progress in difficulty as the later ones were not close up but wide angle views. This led to small things being more difficult to hide. You also returned to some needing to find the object from the silhouette. Overall, very good HOS.
The puzzles weren't difficult but different than any I'd seen before. I was disappointed in the last one as it wasn't at all challenging.
As stated in other reviews the map was interactive so you didn't have to backtrack a lot.
Graphics were clear and well done. Light in the HOS would be varied as they used the ambient light in the room which added to the realism and challenge.
I definitely recommend this game.

not great but good
Not a bad game. Lots of running around to get and do things. HOS are small so makes it hard to find them. Puzzles are ok. Graphics are ok and has good voice over. The music puts you to sleep. Cute game but does not keep you enthused.

Very good HOG
this is a most absorbing HOG starting with the unpromising search for the lost friend. Things soon warm up with interesting HO scenes and mini games, aided by the useful interactive map. Other developers please note that not everybody likes endless torturous tracking back and forth. A likeable game and well worth playing

Oh where oh where did my kraken go now?
I liked the photographic quality of this game, but after 20 minutes I had to turn off the music. The accents kept changing from a strong brogue to a weak one. The most exciting (and funny) part was near the beginning, when the kraken appeared while the ferryman (?) was fishing.
For the most part I did not care for this game, and couldn't wait to exit it.

This game was just okay at best. It wasn't very challenging for one and there were way TOO many HOS. I mean literally you would find something, use it then boom, there's another HOS. No real adventure to it. Someone who doesn't care for more of a challenge might like it or if you don't go cross eyed from looking at a succession of HOS.

It's an OK game, not bad.
It's an OK game, still room for improvement with the graphics. Less repeat HO scenes would be better.

This was a great game. There were a lot of HOs which I liked. I didn't care for some of the types of mini-games and skipped those, although there were some I played. I relied on the Hint to get me to where I needed to go. I had to use a walkthrough a couple of times when I got stuck. The scenery was great. Did not care for the music. I recommend this game for easy enjoyment.
