100% Hidden Objects
There was ALOT to do in this game. They're not kidding. It's 100% HOS. First you choose a themed box. Then you progress through the scenes in the box. In each scene you have the potential to earn three golden stars. One is for finding a random object: the Star Item. The next is for entering frenzy mode by finding many objects quickly. The last is for completing the scene in expert time. There are coins to uncover that are used to purchase helpful tools. The achievement section boggles the mind, there are so many. You have the option of toggling between finding an object from a word list or finding an object from a picture.
Some of the objects were very hard to distinguish. I also ran into a few words that I didn't recognize. After figuring things out by trial and error, I ended up repeating the scenes a few times to earn my gold stars. You can turn the music WAY down if you're not hip to the smooth jazz.
This game could keep you busy for awhile if you're determined to fill all of the stars in all of the scenes and get all of the trophies. If you're at it for 3 hours straight you get the distinguished HARDCORE GAMER award. That's what I'm talking about. :P

OK Hidden object game
If you don't like HO games, I suggest you steer clear of this one! The graphics were ok, but some of the items in the HO's were hard to make out. The music was pleasant if you like jazz, which I do. I don't know whether I would buy this game; I'd like to play it a while longer & then give my opinion. I wouldn't recommend this game without playing it first.

the title says it all
Straightforward Hidden Object game. If that's what you like, then this is for you. I don't do well with timed games, and having to find things quickly to win points, etc. so I wouldn't buy this game. There are different boxes, scenes, to choose from, and you can buy different items with the points you earn to help you find things more quickly, like a bomb which will knock out 5 things at a time. Happy hunting!

Good intentions not so good execution of a game.
Based on playing part of the demo.
This is straight HO game nothing else. One scene after the other. Graphics are not clear enough and it takes forever to find items due to unclear scenes. In scenes where it lit with a flashlight the whole scene is shaking, what were they thinking? it's annoying. You get to collect stars and coins and can buy hints, nothing exciting, really. The music is OK I guess, I like jazz and this one is soothing. I would suggest you to try it out and decide for yourself, I didn't find it to be worth full price, it is not good enough of a game.

Kitty's Thoughts: Decent time waster that could be more
Alright! I actually purchased this game, I only play it once and a while. Though it doesn't hook me to play it like all the others. However. I will discuss 3 of the factors.
Starting with the Challenge, the game is actually even. All you're doing is finding items. This is purely hidden. So, I suggest having this game as one to take a breather from more hardcore breath taking hidden object games. When I don't feel like playing puzzle hardcore dark hidden object games, I come to here. The game gives you a clock to find all the items, but if you decide you don't care to race the clock, then you don't have to. I had played levels where I got 0 stars and still opened the next scene. So, it is not very strict.
The next on the list is probably the visual. I have no problem with the scenery when it was light. However, it's the dark ones with the spotlight that raise the seeing problems. When you move your mouse, the background tends to jerk or shake. In certain scenes, it was quite difficult. However, if you feel like spending your coins can solve it, but that determines if you are going after stars. Furthermore, the music is too repetiive. I find myself muting it and playing my own music.
Last but not least the fun, It's pretty much strait forward Hidden Object game as it says. So fun will vary. You will get bored of it pretty quickly, so play sparingly to keep it fresh. Other than that, it's an okay game. Not the best, but okay. Actually, I another game is way better.

The odd thing about this game is that I have played all the scenes before in a different game! The object here is to find as many hidden objects in expert time status. You are also shown the name of a special item to find at some point in the game and only have a few seconds to find this item. You will earn hints and special tools to help find items. The problem is that most of the items are tiny and not easily recognized. It's a fun game to waste an hour but that's about it. En joy!

I like HOS and was looking forward to playing this, but I'm finding too many objects are going under different names than I would call them. A huge stein was called a mug. To me those are two different items. And what in the world is a bundle? I will keep playing as I like looking for things, but I doubt I'll ever make the expert level as there's always something I would call by a different name and that takes a lot of extra time to find.

Not for the faint on timed games
I was so excited to see this new game... but no option to have "casual/no timed". I have disability with my hands for doing things quick and this was w-a-y too quick. I do like the choice for picture or words to find HO. Some of the words were not right in what we needed to find... maybe go thru it again and revise. I'd probably buy if had no timer, and could see graphics better... don't do well with "in the dark" ones with my vision. Great try though.

I love HO games, but not this one I found it boring.

Get the bad with the good
While it was a great idea to come up with a hidden object game that is purely hidden objects, the execution of this game seemed lacking. The jazzy music seemed fine at the beginning, but soon grew repetitive and droning on, which made me sleepy and therefore I could not concentrate on the game itself. So, if you try this, make sure you go into the options menu and turn off the background music.
The puzzles were fine, and had an adventure theme to them, Atzec temples, caves, jungles, etc. You have to earn coins to buy tools to ease you along on the puzzles, if you get stuck, which seemed easy at first, but it was really tempting to blast through the tools, and when you were out of coins, you were out of luck. The puzzles that were darkened where you had to look for objects using a flashlight could have been left out, but there was a pay-for tool that would turn the lights on for you, too. There were lots of good things about this game, but there are some not so good things, too. Don't be suckered in by the title, but if you must, you will be pleased to know there are no malevolent spirits, psychotic criminals, or creepy old manor houses filled with logic puzzles lurking around every corner. Hey, but you get the bad with the good, and this most definitely falls with in between.
