not hard and different in play
Graphics are good and has voice over. Not a hard game and has a good flow to it.
The HOS are not all that often but are different. 2 parts of them to solve. Items can be hard to spot but the hint button works really good there and through out the game.
Puzzles are good also and not that many.
The game will give you hints on what to do even if you do not ask which is good.
Give it a try not a bad game.

Complete lack of frustration...
Review of Demo:
I trialed the demo of this game & it seemed pretty good, I don't remember why I thought to wait for the SE, maybe I wasn't interested in the bonus content. Anyhoo..
This game is very linear, in a very good way. It doesn't restrict you from doing anything just to stay on track, which is my usual complaint about linear games. You use your inventory items relatively quickly. You aren't left wondering "Which of the 30 tasks that I have am I able to complete now, if any?" You usually have no more than 4 tasks at a time. When you find a locked gate or door, you get what you need to open it before too long. This set up makes for a very comfortable game. I haven't felt frustrated at all. The puzzles are decent. Most are easy-moderate difficulty, a few hard ones. Not too many HO scenes, and I have yet to get a penalty for rapid clicks. Which for me is a big plus. I became tired of HO scenes awhile back but I still love the adventure parts of the games. So now I'm guilty of just clicking on the objects that stick out until I'v completed the scene. So no click penalty is very nice. Why force those that don't like those scenes to slow down, get frustrated and not enjoy it one bit. Especially in games that have far too many HO scenes, you just get done with one long boring click penalty fest and have to go through another. I am happy to say this game is not like that AT ALL.
The story is interesting. I am rather curious as to what happens at the end. The characters are well drawn, I can't stand the artwork in some games that make the characters look like their skin on their face is melting off, or a bad sculpture.
I highly recommend this game.

Fun Fun Fun
I can't say enough about this game. I just played this one. I have the first one, the city of cyan, and this one just gets better to the tune of ten. Long, lots of puzzles. an added bonus of a hidden object within a hidden object to find the last piece of the initial one. Not boring to me, and I have played many over my year and a day with HOGs in this pond now.
You get help from the hint thingy, but I just used the arrow feature for the most part. So riveting I found myself playing all the way through, for hours of fun on a hot afternoon when I had to be indoors.
I wanted to know more abut the little girl, and how she knew so much about so many things....hope for a sequel. She was gorgeously drawn....all of the characters were very realistic.
I recommend this game. Glad I bought it.

Wonderful game with beautiful scenes
This was a very good game to play. It's a long game, new scenes and worlds keep coming for a long time, filling me with wonder. The storyline is good, the characters too. Challenge enough and logic in the gameplay too.
The HOS's are original: you have to look for objects in two different times. HOS scenes are repeated but not too much.
Only the ending was a bit sudden for me. But I felt very well entertained at the end. More of these, please!

Lots of fun
I love adventure games but almost all games on bigfish are HOGS. This particular game is very colorful and the characters are interesting. Puzzle's aren't to hard and the map feature works so you don't have to go back and forth running all over the place.
