worth buying the game
I enjoyed the entire game, which includes the bonus round. It was entertaining as well as fun.

Elephant Games can do much better
Elephant Games have given us so many excellent games, which maybe have contributed to make us also a little too fussy. As it?s my case for this game.
The idea is very good and original, that is changing the end of two famous works by Shakespeare to free three teenagers trapped inside the plot. Nevertheless I was rather disappointed, maybe because I expected too much from my favourite developers.
Someone wrote in the review that the game might even be considered ?educational?. I have to disagree, at least as for the graphics which show Verona at the time of Romeo and Juliet. The architectonical style is a bizarre mixture of real, even though interpreted in a fancy way, local Renaissance architecture and incongruous Alsace half-timbered house which have nothing to do with Italian ancient architecture. The indoors scene are even more incongruous with pieces of furniture of various historical period, but rarely suitable to Renaissance. I have even seen a kind of Art Deco lamp, which seemed to work with an electric bulb.
Of course it?s simply a game, so none expects a lesson of history from that, but I don?t think it can be considered slightly educational in any way.
The Graphic in general are less pleasant than many other games by the same very talented developers, I got disturbed by the bluish hue too present in every scene inside the book world and the character are not as nicely created , graphically, either.
But the game is accurate and I think it can be entertaining, even though I didn?t find it at the same level of the best production of Elephant games.

Different storyline and fun to play. Bonus play was pretty good too. I had to really think sometimes about the next move and I had to use "hint" a few times.

A good game
A great game!! with a very unique story. Three students go to the library and end up going inside a book : Romeo and Juliet. You need to fix the endings to a happy one. The Ho were alot of fun...... placing objects rather then finding.... not hard at all. The graphics were good not the best at times looking a bit fuzzy or blurry. The puzzles were not hard either. The bad part for me was the length. The main game i beat it so fast! A collectors edition so short :C The bonus added a bit tho so i could smile abit with that extra play.If you love Shakeaspeare like me ... you will enjoy this game simply because it is different and new compared to the same story games we are used to playing. Although not perfect...... or long i still enjoyed myself.
