I have just finished playing this game for the second time in three days. It?s been a while since we?ve had a truly distinctive game, and much as we love our favourite developers, it?s refreshing to see something so original.
Needless to say, graphics are great, and the ambient sounds are extremely well done. I like that there was such a variety of music. A small touch that added enormously to this game?s appeal was a different tone for each item you picked up in the HOs.
Speaking of, the HOs are fun. If you need a wrench, you may get a HOs and collect 12 of them, other items you may get a standard item list, which you must complete before you qualify for the final riddle, which will identify the inventory item.
And a large number of the puzzles were original!!
As a package this game gets an A+ for creativity, sophistication and fun.

I really liked this game
This is not the most challenging game I have played but it sure is fun. There are all kinds of new games and things to do inside of it. The sound/music and voices are pretty good and the game itself is very pretty. I enjoyed at the end of a hidden object game there was a written clue of what you should find next. There are lots of things to do and places to go. The story line is pretty interesting too. When I finish this, I am buying this game. I really enjoyed it that much. Hope you do too!!

IT WAS ABOUT TIME FOR A BIT OF INDIANA JONES!!!
I've seen it all...
The haunted houses, the ghosts, the dead wives, the ravens...
I am very grateful to finally be driven out of the darkness and mysterious graveyards and into the wild!
The game starts in a blimp, which is always a beautiful sight, and continuous on to a world far away through the magical portal.
HOS scenes are beautiful drawn, although the rest of the scenes could maybe be a bit different one from another, but that is just a minor thought.
I liked the cut scenes that showed the back story, I've never skipped a single one.
This game is great for everyone who feels like a true explorer and I certainly recommend it!

I almost didn't play the demo for this game, let alone buy it, because the download took so long for me. I'm so glad I was patient though and got it downloaded in the end as I really enjoyed the game.
The graphics are great and the hidden object scenes are lovely and I liked the riddle at the end of those too.
The map is very useful and the length of the game is just right.
Maybe not the most challenging but very nice to play and it's always nice not to have to cause to use the hint button.
Good puzzles too, a bit different.
Thanks devs and BF :)

GREAT ADVENTURE GAME
Exciting fast-paced adventure game. Scenes flow effortlessly as you seek the Tree of Life, rescue the land from poisoning the land and escape from evil-minded smoke-like spirits. Good blend of HOAs with riddles to solved and puzzles/mini-games. Live actors and voice overs - some good; others not so much. Interesting villians. Great music and cutscenes. Expert and regular modes ? helpful map (not interactive) includes objectives (and actions if playing regular mode). Graphics and overall production values are top notch. Gameplay is straightforward and usually contained within a few scenes at a time. Achievements and collectibles.

As with the CE of this game, I have to say that I find it different to most other games. It might not be everybody's cup of tee, but If you want to explore a different, fantasy, world I would recommend this game.
All of the extras are gone from this standard release, but still the epic world is present.

I didn't know acorns grew on maple trees!
Well put and strong story line. I don't ever recall playing an Eipix game before, but I'll be looking out for another one. The HOS were varied, so for me that counted in the developer's favor. I also got a kick out of their sense of humor especially when I read the credits. Walking dead, indeed! And acorns, on a MAPLE tree? Funny.

I thought this game looked interesting months ago when it was introduced as a "new game." It was introduced again by Big Fish as a "new game" again and so I decided to buy it. It was fun, the graphics above most as well as the sound. The actors saying their lines had much to be desired, but overall, it was a fun and relaxing game. Another reviewer gave it two stars and I thought that was kind of harsh, especially when I compare the two star games I have played with this one. I enjoyed it and so will you.

Another highly recommended HOG game to play. It makes me feel like an adventurer.

This is a well done game. I found the actor/character interaction different & entertaining. I think this game would be a good HO game for those starting out. The scenes are colorful & bright, the riddles after the HO's are fun. All in all a great game.....the trial times on Big Fish Games feel rather short, you get to play for an hour, but it seems like 10 minutes.
