Namariel Legends: Iron Lord
No Hidden Object Scenes, No Walk Through, No Buy!
Based on the demo in casual of the 2 modes. Too techie for me. Although it started out okay I soon became bored with trying to fix everything. I was surprised there were so many 5-star reviews but to each their own.
So you play the demo and see what you think. For me I didn't like it even though it was a Daily Deal at $2.99 and won't be buying it.

I read some reviews before I downloaded this game and honestly, I felt pretty mislead. From reading the reviews I did know going into this game that it was not a HOV and while I do enjoy those, I thought maybe I'd give this a whirl anyways due to the fact that so many "experts" claimed that the game was still challenging. My 8 year old daughter beat this game on expert with no problem and even she thought this game was pretty pathetic. I guess that makes her an expert too...? This game was WAY TOO easy. Sure, a few of the mini-games took a few minutes to figure out but even on expert level they spell out what you have to do which I completely hate. The background imagery was pleasant to the eye but the animation was lame and out of date. The speech and voice actors they used were 100% wrong and laughable.
Skip this game if you are not a beginner.

Based on Completed Game
I bought this game ages ago after playing the demo and thought it would be really cool. It was forgotten for a while and sat in my Game Manager until I decided to play it this week since I'm on vacation. I started over from the beginning and up to the 1 hour demo it was pretty interesting. But afterwards it just fell apart.
It started to drag and actually got boring. I had to force myself to finish it because I paid good money for it. The storyline was terrible with so many holes and illogical choices in the plot that it was ridiculous. Suspending disbelief did not go that far. Also, this cutesy factor pops up in the middle of the game out of left field and it made NO SENSE at all. The story isn't resolved and leaves the player with a lot of unanswered questions, probably because they want you to get the CE for the answers. IMO it's just not worth it. After all the rave reviews, and the admittedly cool first hour, I expected a lot more out of this game but didn't get it.
This game's been out for a while now, but it was so terrible that I had to leave a review.

Hidden objects? Seems more just puzzles and lame ones at that! Quit the game after I realized that it is not a hidden object game, if there is a another of this type I will not buy it.
