Small Town Terrors: Pilgrim's Hook Collector's Edition
With the market of HOGs flooded with the same game different artwork, I found this is one of the pack. This game just didn't hook me. Portals, evil spirits, searching to free a loved one has gotten old for this player. The game is the product of a dev that worked hard to make this game so I won't say it isn't a buy. I am hoping for something fresh in story line and challenge. For new HOG players I am sure they will enjoy yet for me this game is sadly more of the same old.

If you are new to Hidden Object games then this is a good pick.
Simple really this game is for the person who is just starting to play Hidden object games. Yes there are Three difficulty modes, but I just played "Try B4 U Buy" in expert mode(which is the mid level mode) and just it was way to simple for me. Yes there was a jump map that highlights where to go next if you have found an item, but I did not need it. My feeling is, if you and an advanced player there are much better games available. I am not going to comment on the Vis/sound qual and so on there is no need just look at my grading marks above for that info. I am usually a fairly lenient grader when it comes to Visual/sound qual and storyline. Most important for me is the challenge and fun.

This game was interesting. But the trial version ended with 13 minutes left. With the message thanks for playing!

Nothing Like The Reviews Said...
Given that the first to Small Town Terrors weren't very good, I wasn't expecting much from the third. I was right not to, because this didn?t excite me at all.
The storyline has good potential, but wasn't executed well. It wasn't gripping or exciting, like a story of this type of game would be. It?s the typical ?find your missing sibling? story, which has been done a lot, so if you?re going to do it, it better be good. This was not. There were some good voice-overs, but that?s about it in my opinion. I was pretty much bored throughout the entire demo (which only lasted about 30 minutes anyway.)
The HOS though were great. They were a good challenge for me, and I really enjoyed. The HOS contained interactive objects, and some contained many different objects, while others contained groups of only a few objects. At the end of each scene, you had to find one more object which you would take with you in your inventory.
The puzzles I extremely disliked. They were too hard for me, and I ended up having to skip all of them. Some I didn?t even attempt to finish, others I had a go at. Overall though, they were disappointing.
The graphics were the average ones you?d find in a game, not bad, but not stand-out either. They certainly didn?t jump out at me, and there were a couple of scenes that were hazy and unclear, but otherwise they were okay.
- A Diary to keep track of all events
- A map which is interactive and saves a lot of time backtracking
- Hint and skip, both of which charge quickly. (I played this on casual mode)
- Built-in Strategy Guide (CE Exclusive)
- 15 achievements (CE Exclusive)
- 25 Collectibles known as ?Castor?s Creatures? (CE exclusive)
Looking at all the CE Exclusives, I don?t believe this to be good value for money and considering I finished the demo in half an hour, I don?t think the game will be long either.
Even if you enjoyed this game (which I didn't), I would strongly consider waiting for the Standard Edition, considering it would be better value

Pilgrim's Hook is sinking!
This game was visually entertaining. The graphics were great, the puzzles and HO scenes were great too. The storyline was terrible!!! It was choppy, weird and made no sense at all and did not enthrall me. I would not recommend this game at all unless you are bored and want to look for things! BOO!

I hated it!!!!!
Not my cup of tea at all. Not one of the worst, but so so close.

I was very prepared to throughly enjoy this game, and the immediate introduction seemed intriguing.
Howeber, I found the artwork to be so primitive and awful, especially when compared to so many excellently illustrated games available.
Got nowhere near even finishing the demo. Sorry but my time is too valuable to waste on such poor quality.
