Vacation Adventures: Park Ranger
A relaxing HO game.
And sometimes all I want is to play a game that is not gloomy, that has no storyline of misfortune happening to people and you got to save the world, no pressure of completing missions because there are none, and no going back and forth on a map to look for items. Sometimes all I want is a game that has bazillions of HO scenes that are well made, that the music is relaxing and you get easy bonus points, hint that is helpful and puzzles...ok, maybe not that easy...puzzles are way too easy. The graphics are clear, objects are well defined. I got what I want with this easy going pace of a game. "casual arts" is making really great games and I enjoy this current one as well.

Relaxing HO game
I like straight HO games occasionlly. You can relax and take your time. Graphics are very nice, objects are not too hard to find, and finding extra "tourist" objects is fun, I would recommend this as an "end of day" game to wind down from HOAs tha require lots o concentration.

This is a FUN adventure, a MUST try, it will surprise you :-)
I think these developers really made improvements on this game, and THANKS a bunch for making it LONGER also.
It is their best game so far IMHO, had a nice long length, which I complained about, in previous games, so happy to see they listen to their customers.
This one is NOT just for children, so don't miss out on a great game, try it and see for yourself, I am 50 yrs old, and enjoyed every minute playing this gem.
Not only do you find items listed in each scene, but you also need to find, lost and found items, and recycled items that go in the trash. It is so much FUN, and very entertaining, LOVED the mini's inbetween, and collecting extra stuff in each scene, really was a bonus and made the game play a lot more fun.
Also there are cute touches throughout, like when you click on a chainsaw, and you can actually hear it start up..to cute!!
I always like the puzzles and mini's these developers put into these games, and let me tell you it has some challenge to it also. Some of the items are hard to spot, but I loved that about it, they did a good job at hiding them, not just making them so small you can't see them, job well done.
I played this one all day, it was relaxing and just what I needed today, was totally satisfied using one of my coupons, so money well spent.
Please don't go by the screen shots, its much better than it looks, and IMHO it is not just a kids game either, give it a try and you might be surprised like I was and really have FUN!!

Great story for children
I loved this game. It is on the same basis as the Easter egg & Halloween games .The hog scenes are not to difficult. Great for the younger kids and grandparents that do not enjoy the blood and guts story line. You travel through the park helping the rangers fix up the park. The mini games are fairly simple to do. Nice relaxing game.

Good fun,,,screens are large, colorful and 'clean;' that means that screens are clearly defined, not smoky, faded and bleended...so much easier to play, the mini-games are fun! Just like the old Big City Adventures who have now gone smoky!!! Hope they come out with more in the series!

L-O-V-E this game!!!
Great job developers!!!! THANK YOU!! I prefer games like this, don't like the yukky, dark, scary types. This one is so enjoyable, relaxing, nice graphics, music ok too.
Love the 3 categories of HO: 1) finding recycle items even if they don't tell you how many to find, cool challenge; 2) HO images; 3) and of course, the HO's. The mini games are a little different and I liked them all.
Only downside, if any, and maybe it is because I am a great-grandma :) but some HO's are too small to find.
Again THANK YOU!!! Start developing more of these!!!

A Perfect HO game for Summer and Relaxing!!
Beautiful park scenes. Fun game to relax with when you have a few minutes or a day off. Bright and clear...You can let your imagination go...and almost pretend to be there as a park ranger. Travel through a park, enjoy natural beauty performing your tasks, cleaning up the park and getting it ready for park activities. Nice music. This game is not timed so sit back and enjoy the beautiful outdoor scenes in this lovely hidden object game. This is not just for children, anyone can enjoy this type of game if you want something different from all the HOPA games. You don't have to think so much! Some of the objects are challenging to find - makes it more fun!! I hope there will be more HO games like this in the future. GREAT FUN!!

Great Game for relaxing
From the makers of Christmas Wonderland, Halloween Treat and Treat, and Easter Eggs comes Vacation Adventures Park Ranger. You can pick either male or female to become a ranger. This is a very relaxing game for kids of all ages. The graphics is so realistic that I wished I was there. Music is smoothing. This HOG is great for kids to learn the great outdoors and for adults (who loves the outdoors) wished to be there.

Fun and Versatile
This is really a FUN game...the music is not obnoxious...the scenes are very cute...great added feature of having to pick up garbage and throw it away, which is super training for little kids. Several things going on at once and then the mini games are challenging and a good variety. I was delighted with the promo and bought the game and am STILL playing it. I keep thinking it will end, but yet there's MORE! Good Job!

I can smell the pines!
I love the games from this developer. I find them relaxing and, in the case of the holiday-themed games (Hallowe'en and Christmas), they put me in the mood for the season. I'm fortunate to be living in the Pacific Northwest, and the park seems like it could be here, though I suppose folks from Maine and even parts of Europe could argue the same. I think it's an all-ages game, and I'm enjoying it as much as a grandma as my grandson will probably enjoy it when he reaches the grand old age of five. The graphics are sharp and clear, make me feel like I'm there at the scene. I'm not a fan of the re-used music background, but I've found that if I turn the music off and leave the background noises, I hear water running, birds chirping, and other realistic lovely sounds of being in nature. I'll echo the reviews of others: try it and see if you like it; you might just surprise yourself by purchasing and enjoying it.

P.S. I'm really hoping that the devs will create a game celebrating St. Patrick's Day!
