The Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes
Tried so hard to like it
As other reviewers have said, it has so much potential.
Personally I loved the soothing, classical music, but hated the 'tension-building' themes and 'spooky' noises - so unnecessary!
Graphics were terrible - nearly gave up at the 'bath search' and resorted to some language when a 'mop' turned out to be a rag. When it comes to just clicking on anything 'in case' then something is very wrong.
Puzzles were too easy and I don't count cluttered blurry HOs as a challenge.
I hope developers take note and redo this as it could be a fantastic game.
Even with this weekends offer/a coupon available/a punch card to fill I will not be buying this game.

Seven little dwarfs ??
I managed to stick it out for 20 minutes, then I had to quit. The graphics are terrible, the music was boring, & all in all , the game was rather confusing. I saw a timer, but wasn't sure what it was for; the HO's were dark & blurry & it seemed like every time you turned around there was another one. I for one, will not recommend this game.

A frustrating hidden object game
A decent game if you can get it on sale but also frustrating as needed objects are sometimes hard to spot and I found some of the in game instructions needed to be a little clearer.

My biggest problem with this game was that the graphics in the HOS's were mushy and indistinct, some so blurred that I couldn't tell what they were. I hated the fact that every time I needed an inventory object, I couldn't just mouse over the inventory, I had to actually click to open it. So checking your inventory quickly to see if you needed something in a room wasn't quick. Not having it open on the screen all the time meant that my poor brain kept forgetting what I had. I won't buy this one.

Not very good
This game is cumbersome, with very poor response time, and it quickly became tedious. I couldn't tell much about the plot because I just got tired of trying to make it do what I wanted. There are many other better hidden object games.

The worst game ever
Terrible. I did not see the point. Find the gnomes. but don't take them.
Wish I had not purchased, almost didn't because of tech. issues. no tech issues just bad
very abrupt ending!

Needs more work
This game has the makings of a good game. The graphics are good but it kept crashing. Had to keep restarting the game and that was just the free trial. If the bugs got worked out I would buy it.

went thru at casual level and never used so many hints in any game. even after using hint had hard time figuring out what was required to proceed. usually play games in 1 day took a long time to complete as had to stop for days as to frustrated and no help from forums, which I went to several times. Couldn't get items to work a lot.

Boring, poor graphics, not sure what I'm suppose to be looking for. Didn't even want to finish trial.
