No Frills, But Very Well Done BASED ON DEMO I don?t expect the EXPERTS will like this one at all, in fact, I ADVISE them DON?T BOTHER downloading. Not only is this game VERY EASY in EVERY ASPECT of GAMEPLAY, it also has only ONE PLAY MODE, and there are SPARKLES EVERYWHERE. Literally NO HOT SPOT can be missed. Now for the rest of us... This is CLEARLY LOW BUDGET. There is next to NO INTRO, NO VOICEOVERS, BASIC GRAPHICS, SAME for MUSIC, NO AMBIENT SOUND. But, I LIKE it. The GRAPHICS are PHOTO-REALISTIC and EXTREMELY WELL DONE. The HO SCENES are CLEAR as a bell, NOT AT ALL CROWDED, every object easily seen. There is no ANIMATION or INTERACTION, it is just a simple LIST. There is one other HOS not of this style where you must find all the dolls hidden in the scene. There are a LOT of HOS (I counted 7 in 30 minutes of play), but none are repeated. There are almost AN EQUAL number of SIMPLE PUZZLES ( 5 in 30 minutes). These are STRAIGHT FORWARD and WELL KNOWN. But I did skip one. SKIP is reasonably fast. HINT is VERY FAST, and gives actual hints (much as I don?t care for dolls, I should inspect the cabinet, eg.) or sometimes it is DIRECTIONAL. NO MAP, there is a JOURNAL which keeps the STORY up to date. Nothing by way of serious head scratching is needed to play the ADVENTURE side of the game, we are spoon fed on that as well, and inventory items become available just when they?re needed. The STORY is a GHOST STORY, our friend has invited us to a FARM, but is not there when we arrive, our mobile doesn?t work, and when we finally break into the house, we are greeted by a GHOST, who seems friendly and helpful. The PROBLEM this farm has seems to be VENGEFUL SCARECROWS (although I?m not sure what was done to them to get them so riled up). After a rash of FRIENDLY SCARECROWS of late, I?m interested to see what ANGRY ones get up to. This is DEFINITELY a game that BEGINNERS could really ENJOY (or those with poor eyesight ? the HOS really are very clear),and I think it?s not a bad one for a LAZY DAY?S game. Personally, I am very glad after so many duds lately to be able to RECOMMEND a STAND-ALONE STANDARD EDITION unreservedly. But, as I said, EXPERTS, forget it! July 8, 2013
Would Be Great For A Beginner But Not For Me - Based On Demo HOPA: Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure: Heavy on HOS, some puzzles, with light adventure traveling back/forth. 1 PLAY MODE: This is very sparkle heavy. The game filled my screen however not true widescreen as the graphics appeared to be stretched a bit. There is a journal: Holds notes and some puzzle clues. There is no map. There is no voice overs HOS: Found by word list and I did 10 scenes during the demo time. The ones in green color are your inventory. These I found to be well done and not Sanford & Son junkyard pile. No problems here. The inventory is pretty much used right away. Not much traveling back/forth what I played of this. HINT: This is the green lantern down at the bottom and charges up very quick as it's within a few seconds. If you don't do anything at all in a scene, or just click about, you will get nudged into the right direction. Puzzles: The usual run of the mill: Slider puzzle, jig saw, guess the code, and get the stove knobs to all light up etc. Directions for puzzles is the hint button at the bottom. The skip is the green button at top of the screen. Overall impression: This is not a bad game but I think maybe it was designed for someone who is new to hidden object games or someone who just wants to relax without any frustration and will definitely not appeal to anyone looking for a challenging game. The graphics are quite good however old school. Nothing high tech here. No bells and whistles. Overall 3 stars from me. This looked like it might have been a pretty good game however II just couldn't get into this game or the story. I don't mind games that aren't very challenging at times along with a lot of HOS but for me this was overkill on the hand holding sparkles. I do like to try and figure out on my own. This ruined it for me. Sorry Big Fish and developer but this is a no go for me. As always, give it a whirl and decide for yourself. I still recommend the game but only to a beginner or someone who isn't looking for a challenging game and likes a lot of HOS. July 8, 2013
NOT! Great game, a little too easy, but should have read the reviews! I bought it after free time ran out and got to play maybe 10 minutes more! July 31, 2013
Are you weary... ...of engaging, humourous voice overs? ...of challenging, interactive HOSs? ...of beautiful graphics, enchanting, atmospheric music? ...of puzzles which give a real sense of achievement? Do you yearn for the days when... ...the highlighted object in the list means this is the inventory object? ...every character you meet tells you what you need to do next? ...when the gameplay is so linear that you don't need a map? ...when you encounter HOSs at every turn? Then this is the game for you! Sadly, not for me as nostalgia is not a criterion I use when purchasing games. And all the more frustrating on 'Double Punch Monday'. July 8, 2013
Lonely farm, missing boyfriend, mean scarecrows.... Played 20 minutes and it's been a pain.... :S - No mode to choose - No voice overs - A lot of dialogues - A lot of H0, extremely dark for most of them, you can hardly spot the rather big items. Supposed to be interactive, but I couldn't sort out how they were ! - Hint doesn't indicate you where the item is in H0s, it gets rid of it instantly :S , outside H0s just tells you there's nothing to do here - Came across two mini games in a jungle of H0s You end up in a lonely farm, your boyfriend has disappeared, you meet a lot of chatty ghosts and have to beware of alive scarecrows..... It's been a pain to play these 20 minutes (hand held all the time) but I wanted to give the game a fair chance. When I entered the girl's room and saw dolls all over the place, then the boys room with a computer in good place, this became too much for me and I exited as fast as I could. :S July 8, 2013
A HOG, not much more This is a standard HOG, no bells or whistles. There is one level of play and sparkles lead you through the game so there is really no challenge at all. HOS are around every corner and the games were easy to solve. Some scenes are too dark which make it difficult to find what you are looking for and some of the hidden objects are not named correctly so you either click all over or use the hint button which does refill fast. I don't recommend this game unless you like old-school HOGs. July 8, 2013
very simplistic This is a very simple game. No voice overs.. all the story and dialogue are written. You are looking for some guy at a farm that is overrun with scarecrows?? So you do a HO scene, find the key.. then open the car trunk. ...need a rope.. do the HO find a rope.. you get the picture. Very simple. It looks like this was an early attempt by someone and it's okay. The artwork is good and there is a storyline but it just can't compare to the big productions we are used to seeing. Nice but very simple game not for anyone who plays a lot of these games. You'll be bored to tears. July 8, 2013
Yawn...for me anyway The story, as far as I could decipher from the gameplay, revolves around you ( a young woman) who is meeting a person named Zack at a farm. He, however, is not there, when, after enduring a spooky solo drive through the woods, you arrive at your destination, a farmhouse, only to find the gate boarded up.You have a very weak cell phone signal that cuts in and out, but manages to desplay a cryptic message from the unknown Zack that simply says HELP. Hence, the story begins. Unfortunately, I could not bring myself to play the entire free trial, but what I did notice was there were no voices, just subtitles at the bottom of the screen, which is almost as bad as having voiceovers with bad accents. There is an optional tutorial at the beginning of the game which I didn't use since the game is pretty straighforward. Hint button fills quickly on casual mode. There were 6 list style HOS during the first 15 minues of play, far too many for me, and no alternate game option ie match 3, mahjong etc. I know many players LOVE the HOS, personally I think they are repetitive unless extremely interactive, which these were not. Apart from the negatives...the graphics are pretty standard, not stunning, not dreadful either, and if you love list style HOS this might be right up your alley. For me it is a pass, but, as with any game, try the trial for yourself. July 8, 2013
You Can Finish the Game In the Trial! Just like my title says I beat this game with 14 minutes left to spare on my trial. There's no challenge in the game what so ever. Maybe if I was a young child I guess you can consider this a hard game but come on with all the other games out there this isn't worth your time. No voice over's, no real storyline, not scary at all, you don't even care about the main character or why your even looking for your friend, you can barely make out what your journal says if your even interested to look at it, extremely easy hos and puzzle scenes if you even want to call it that and the one cool concept they could have used (the scarecrows# don't even do anything. They are unanimated scarecrows and one of them even has a smile on it's face?!? Really? Come on now! The only reason I gave this game two stars was because I was able to beat the game with out buying it and #and that's without using hints) Although for most people they would not consider that a plus.

Why? why did i still want to play this game after reading the terrible reviews? i simply could not believe a game could b e so bad. well, now i'm a believer. the graphics were simple, the characters too chatty and the hos were very easy. the mini games were not any better. it was so linear that there were not more than 2 or 3 items in inventory before they were was as if you were being led through step by step. i doubt even a beginner would enjoy this game.
