A Great Game ... But A Little Short ... Great Graphics, Sound, Voice & Video Bits ... The Story Is Pretty Good Too ... As This Got Going I Was Hoping To Be Kept Busy For A Long Time ... It's Worth A Deal Or SE Price ... The Extra Story On The End Was A Nice Follow On, But This Does Not Give Enough For The Extra Asking Price .... I Want More Games Like This One ... Just With A Whole Lot More Game Play ... June 9, 2013
A Game That Exceeds All Expectations This game comes from game developer Eipix and I am incredibly impressed with their games; most recently, this wonderful HOPA that I can foresee being a contender for one of the best HOPA games of 2013. Compared against the same old and tired cookie-cutter games that the casual gaming market seems to be flooded with as of late; this game from Eipix stands apart from the rest. I won't go into much detail about the game mechanics as others have already covered that area thoroughly. What I will say is that everything from the opening cut-scene to the final credits (which are hilarious by the way and I recommend reading through them) were done exceptionally well. 5 stars all across the board as far as the game mechanics, voice-overs, storyline, atmosphere and ambiance. The game is bright and colorful while still maintaining a chilling experience and can be enjoyed by a variety of players as it does not delve into the occult; it is a mystery to solve and is extremely well-polished. It is obvious from the start that the developers put a lot of hard work into this game, which, as a player, I really appreciate. There is a perfect balance of adventure, HOS, mini-games and mystery to keep the player entertained and invested. The puzzles were just difficult enough to provide a challenge but not so difficult that players will get frustrated and hit the 'skip' button. All skill levels will most likely find the mini-games and puzzles both fun and solvable. The CE does include 3 different types of collectibles that are very well hidden. I liked the extra challenge of trying to locate all of the collectibles due to the difficulty level of trying to locate some of them. The fact that their locations were not blatantly obvious really increased the fun factor. There are also achievements, an enjoyable bonus game, the usual wallpaper and concept art, a rather enjoyable 'making-of' video and a few other extras that aren't often seen packaged with CE's. Even without the bonus chapter or all of the extras, this game would still be well worth the CE price tag if you are able to afford it. Otherwise, the SE will be just as enjoyable as the game wraps everything up nicely at the end so all players, regardless of game version purchased, can enjoy it which I find admirable on the part of the developers.The length of the game is just right. It's not a short game by any means, nor is it too long to the point where a player may begin to get bored. You will get your money's worth of playing time with this one. I spent at least a solid 6-7 hours on this (roughly 5 hours on just the main game) and consider myself an expert player. I did read the journal, watch all cut-scenes, find all the collectibles, attempted to earn as many achievements as possible, did not skip any dialog, puzzles or HOS, or use the hints or the map. The interactive map that let's you jump from location to location is nice to have, but not really necessary as there is not a lot of backtracking in this game, which means less filler and fluff and more actual game-play, which is also appreciated. I look forward to more games by this developer as they have definitely set the bar high in the HOPA genre. Very well done game. Bravo to those that worked very hard on this enjoyable game; your efforts paid off. I highly recommend this game to players of all skill levels. July 10, 2013
Just Good Fun My benchmark for giving 5 stars is if I want to play it again and this one does it! Fantastic graphics, unobtrusive music, great storyline, fun HOP's and puzzles, plus collectibles make this a great game! It's a little bit too easy at times, but nonetheless, I loved it. June 9, 2013
Highly recommended I will go on the record as recommending this game. The play was fun and the minigames were not as distracting as those of most recent games. Most recent HOGs have lengthy minigames that make one forget where the story was going. These games were mostly short and pretty easy games and I actually played all but two of them. Usually I just skip all minigames as too boring to bother with and then continue with the HOG game. I wish there were more games like this one. July 3, 2013
Nice, nice, nice and fun . fun hidden object game enjoy it. HOPA at the best. Nice paint, good story, enjoyable, good mini games June 12, 2013
Hated for Demo to end - I'm buying now I rarely buy Collector's edition, but I am making an exception for this game. It is so fun to play and has a lot of extra's. Finding number, crayons, toys etc. In the hidden object games you have a little extra game to play. The hint button is good and the game is easy to follow. The game is drawn nicely and the music is lightly in the background and pleasant. It is just a fun game. Hope you enjoy it. I will be having some fun today!! June 8, 2013
HOG at its best I really enjoyed this game. The story is excellent, the visuals are terrific and I totally enjoyed this game. Get it if you can! June 8, 2013
Wow, awesome! This game is full of clues to find and gives you a challenge to think and to solve. I can highly recommend this game! its fun, beautiful and brilliant! June 10, 2013
Off The Record: Linden Shades Collector's Edition Exciting hidden object games. Great graphics, enjoyable puzzles, Music and story line pulled me in! A challenging but not frustrating game! June 8, 2013
The third one by EiPix When I saw the name of the Developers, I didn't want to play the demo but bought the game. :-) As I expected, I was not disappointed. I just loved it. June 11, 2013
