Timeless: The Lost Castle
Good hidden object/puzzle game
Loved the game, it kept me very busy to get the puzzles solved. Finding things with no clue to when to use it. Loved it!

This game for me is challenging almost to frustration! I'm playing in Expert mode so the hint charges very slowly. I find myself going back and forth trying to figure out what to do at times and unfortunately when I've used the Hint, it tells me time to move on - grrrr!!! The graphics are really nice and I like the music, it changes with the scenes at times which is good. The HOS are nice, not a lot of clutter and at times interactive. There is no guide and so far no walk through so I'm stuck but will go back and keep going back and forth until I find something!

I Bought It
I bought this game but haven't finished it yet. Just wanted to say I think it is a nice game, good graphics, cutscenes, interesting puzzles. Not the best but I think it is good. :)

Glad I didn't use a credit.
This game had great potential but didn't live up to it.
From the number of "where's this" and "how do you find that" in the pages and pages of comments on the Forum, one can guess that this game doesn't have much of a logical story or progression.
One would be correct.
It begins with some great graphics but such a specious story premise that I should have been warned. There wasn't enough story given as to why someone would grab a plane to dash across the ocean to save a worthy individual. Oh COME ON, you can do better than that! The artwork and graphics were lovely but not enough to overlook huge gaps in logic and story-telling.
Then the HOGs were hazy and objects too tiny for middle-aged eyes to be anything but annoyed by. And having to run back and forth from room to room doesn't bother me but not having any logical progression did; having to stop play to consult a walk through that I had to Google to find also annoyed me. It was bad enough that my game play was interrupted so frequently that I didn't enjoy it.
I won't be trying any of this series and probably not anything else by this game company.
Certainly glad a had a nearly expired game code to waste on it.

Didn't convince me....
This one is more an adventure hooked game than a traditional HOS game. Yes, there are HOS (list and shapes) but most of the time you keep running around, looking for the ?lost thread?? You?ll also find some new and interesting minigames, some of them quite hard.
Graphics are quite good and detailed, concerning the different settings, not so the several characters you?ll meet?
3 modes to choose from. Hint refills slowly, at least in the 2nd mode, which I played. Outside the HOS it shows you through ?glints? the direction where to go next.
We have a detailed journal, but no map. Interesting was a so-called combination-box, next to the inventory, which allows you to combine found items to get a new one.
Later on you are able to create a special lense, which can be used to find hidden items.
No, this time nothing for me...... :(

I found this game too frustrating and tedious. I didn't enjoy it.

NOT a fan of this one!
I did NOT enjoy this game at all!! Boring boring boring! This was my 4th demo of the day and I didn't find anything enjoyable about this game. Couldn't wait for it to be over. Sorry... I am a huge BigFish fan and luckily they have hundreds of games I do love so I will just pass this one by and wish I could get my hour back.

I found that some of the puzzles where annoying and I had to skip a few. There is no strategy guide or walkthrough available which I found annoying. A CE may be better. I thought the characters where interesting and should have been vocalized. I was not aware that this was a sequel game till later.
I liked the joining two items in the inventory in the box. This is a different twist.
The castle was great and had many areas to explore. At first when I was on the Flying Ship level it seemed to go on a bit & I was thinking that you would get to the castle fight the villain and it would end, but I was wrong it actually went on for a good length for a standard game.
I love games with a Snowy Winter theme so that sold me anyway!

Extremely Difficult Game
What is the point of making a Game so hard that you cannot finish it? The Hint Button is useless and just says "move on nothing to do here ..." but doesn't tell you what to do next. I'm sorry I bought this Game. It was a complete waste of Money!

A "nothing better to do" game.
Morning, fellow pond pals. Not a bad little SE for today. Graphics nothing special, but nice and clear, game play nice. Music not bad, but this game definitely needs a little more FX sound or at least a voice here and there (I did hear the "bad guy" laugh a little at one point). A lot of games (okay, but not difficult), not much in the way of HOGs (needs to be a few more to keep things interesting).
You just sort of start in the middle of something without knowing what is going on and you don't really pick up much info as you go either. The story line is a bit muddy to say the least. Hint button is okay, but you really need to be watching to see where it leads you. It takes way too long to reload.
I have the first Timeless game and liked it, but this one falls short a bit. There is a lot of running back and forth, more than needed, but as I said, it was a nice game. This is a good one for a "nothing better to do" day, and we all have those. I will use a game credit for this one, simply because I need to use it or lose it.
As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games, and you may not care for it at all, or you may think it is the greatest thing since buttered popcorn. Thanks for the reviews.
