9 Clues: The Secret of Serpent Creek
The Art work was fine , the story was somewhat unpredictable, and wanted me to carry on to find out what was next. The mayor was really creepy.

Good but not great.
This game was fun, the graphics were ok, but nothing about it screamed for more. I knew pretty much the plot and the main enemy within the first few scenes and that kind of bored me to know who the bad guy really was. It was still a good game, and I do recommend it for anyone who wants an easy and fast game. I played it all in one day, and normally the really good ones last me several days to finish. HOS are easy, but still good, and like I said, the story line is predictable early on, but it does have a couple of surprises. It is one of those games for when you want to play, but don't want a huge challenge...just an easy going paced game.

Very fun SE
Enjoyed playing this game. Very fun SE. There are charming comic-like graphics. Character VO's are well done to match the atmosphere. HOS are come in two types. One is quite standard but clear and easy (the way I like my HOS). The other is referred to as Detective mode where you have to fill in the list by locating evidence in the scene. Puzzles are pretty easy, very do-able. There is a travel map indicating active tasks, depending on which mode you choose. However, it directs you to an area rather than an exact scene. Not overly challenging but an entertaining game. It's a keeper.

Great storyline and voice overs!
This review is based on the demo. This game, set in the 1950s has the player, as the detective, looking into the happenings at a Serpent Festival! It has a nice look, cartoon more than realism, and goes nicely from normal to scary to comical. The HOs are interesting and well drawn, but a bit easy, and the same could be said for the mini games and puzzles. The best part for me was the storyline and the voiceovers...both well above average!! Also interesting is the detective mode where you hunt for clues by following light trails rather than word clues.

This was a different and unusual game and definitely not for snake haters. I liked it but since I never finish demos before the hour, it was a lot easier than I expected (and I did not skip any games). You are out to find out what happened to your friend Helen Hunter and her collegue Joe Trask. The town seems empty, you have the creepy hotel manager, the mayor is obviously a snake creature (hisses his sss), you find Joe dead and the sheriff is missing his arm but is supposed to be getting a new one. There are snakes that have to be distracted.
There are 3 levels of play: casual, advanced and expert. There is an interactive map and not sure about hint button because I did not use it. The hos are fairly simple and do have some interactive, but nothing is hidden in shadows and are readily visible. There was a new twist called Detective Mode which you have to find items that you don't know what you are looking for and at the end it gives you the summary of the chain of events. Music fit and was not overly annoying and the voiceovers were not bad. Very cartoon like, but didn't detract from the story. Items in inventory are not complicated.
Not a bad game, storyline flowed nicely. Not sure if I will buy or not (if I do it will be with free credit). Also not sure if I recommend or not.

Great game! A little short...
This is a very unique little gem of a game. It was a tremendous amount of fun, but it ended a bit soon -- not so soon to where I felt like I'd been ripped off, but I felt it could have been slightly longer. Should this stop anyone from trying/buying the game? Nope. Even knowing what I know now about the length, I'd still pay to own it.

I thought oh a cheap so so game and then I got caught up into it. The characters were great. It moved along smoothly. Good hint button. Great map. I will put it on the buy list.
Warning slight language in the game. I do not like that.

Very enjoyable. Bright and clear graphics, good story line, and map feature enables you to jump locations.
