Strange Discoveries: Aurora Peak
I remember this game. Must have the CE. Hint button to slow. Other wise no complaints.

Fun game, but short
This is one of those games I liked, but it was rather short. I don't think it is a five star game because of this.
The object of the game is for the heroine to save her brother and figure out what is going on with the mystery crystals. The answer is obvious, but the HOG and mini games make up for it.
This game might be a bit too easy for some, but if you just like to enjoy games it is a good get. I just wish it was a bit longer.

i had to cheat a few times. it is not that hard but i just couldn't figure out a few things. hint/skip take a minute to a minute to charge. there is a diary and map that shows objectives and places you need to go and will let you jump there.
it is about a detective called in to find a woman and he has to discover all kinds of things. it is about crystals. i played casual, low sound. sequel, oh i think so.

Enjoyable but not original, 2 small glitches
BASED ON COMPLETED GAME PLAY ON HARD MODE
This game is fun for an afternoon. It's nothing new story-wise, the graphics are so-so and the music is adequate. The HOS had some of what I call "shadow" scenes where you have the outline of an object and have to find what it is. I'm not crazy about shadow scenes, but they were pretty easy. There was nothing "wow!" about this game, but nothing bad about it either. I would say it's suitable for a beginner because I was able to breeze through it without hints. There is a jump map, always a good thing.
I do have to point out that both the flint for the fire and the boards for the ladder were invisible ONCE THEY WERE ADDED to my inventory. The were still there, just invisible. In order to use them, I had to click on them and estimate where they were on the screen because I couldn't see them. I didn't find this glitch enough to make me dislike the game, but thought I'd tell you all how to get around the problem.
Bottom line, it's a fun game, but no masterpiece.

Too many BUGS!
It may just be my system, but I don't have ANY problems with ANY other games. This one siezed up about three times and I had to shut down to make it move again. Then the HINT button quit working for awhile. If it had worked better, I would have liked it a lot better.
