Nearwood 4.5 5 84 84
A Different HOG (based on the demo!) You'll like this game if: 1) you're tired of HOGs where you have one unimaginative hidden-object scene after another 2) you like fairy-tale environments and cute characters, but are tired of princesses and witches Good sides: 1) Amazing visuals, with absolutely charming scenes and colourful objects 2) A different story, a bit more complicated, but enjoyable 3) More puzzles than HO scenes, and the HO scenes aren't list-based (at least the ones I've encountered in the demo) 4) Puzzles are imaginative and well made Bad sides: 1) The map has a teleporter which has to recharge, meaning you can't skip from one scene to another whenever you like (I don't see the point of the teleporter, to be honest) 2) As far as I know, there is no way to rush through the dialogues. You can skip them altogether, but you can't click to show the next speech bubble until the character is done speaking Conclusion: I'm a fan of fairy-tale type of games, so I was really thrilled with the graphics and the story. If you feel the same way, you'll really love this one :) September 6, 2013
BLEW ME AWAY!! This is my first review for Big Fish games, though I've been playing them for years. This game was so wonderful that I HAD to finally take the plunge and submit a review. The visual effects are stunning, especially the opening fly-by scenery, which I have sat through several times since getting the game, just because it's so AWESOME! This game is a great mix of HOS (silhouette, items and multiples of 1-2 items# and games like I have not seen much of in the past. The characters, animal and elfin #?) are wonderfully drawn and animated. I never wanted it to end! It's a good length, too. September 7, 2013
Excellent Game a must have This is the second time I have played this game and it is still fantastic fun. The HOG are very good and you have to really look for the items. The game has you thinking all the time. Story is really nice , graphics are better than a lot of the BF games. Nice music and the time goes to quickly when playing the hour game. This is a must have. I didn't buy it the first time but I will this time Great game all round. September 6, 2013
Love Nearwood This game has beautiful and colorful graphics! I love the cute little animals and magical characters. The puzzles are very imaginative and the H0's are not the run of the mill and not hard. Lovely to look at and fun to play! September 6, 2013
Wow, most beautiful casual game I've ever played Based on completed game. This game made full use of recent technology in terms of graphics, visual effects and allround sound and voice overs - and how well at that! Even the initial loading scene is gorgeous. Every location held so much magical beauty it was just a joy looking at and immersing myself in it. The gameplay and challenge level weren't hectic, but also not too simple to be boring. Luckily there were not many HO scenes, as those where FRAGs, which I usually don't like, but they were decently done in this game. The mini games were mostly real fun and very much in keeping with the overall theme. I am amazed that one reviewer down-rated this game just because the interactive aspect of the map needed to re-charge as hints generally do, which I thought brought an extra level of taking it serious, so to speak, because it made me think twice to use the map to jump to scenes and I rather walked were it was close, in that way enjoying the scenery and getting a better grip on what's where. I was sad when the game finished and though these days it's a given that games are only a few hours long, I am from the generation that played Myst, etc or the Quest games for weeks at a time. Haha, well maybe because there was no hint system or an option for a walkthrough or a strategy guide, one had to really dig in and get with it to finish those. ;) Nearwood could have gladly gone on and on as far as I am concerned; it was a thourough pleasure and great fun to play. I didn't buy the CE because it seemed unnecessary as I am not into achievements and all the many "find this, that and the next thing" and most certainly couldn't care less for the obligatory wallpapers et al. For the sheer beauty of it I now wished I had the bonus chapter to play on a little bit longer. Seeing that this is a farily unknown developer all I can say is: Well done, people! More please.

Beautiful The graphics were great and the storyline was good, I like the fantasy games as a rule anyhow and this one was gorgeous fun to play one of those I would definitely play twice. I actually have played several of my games more than once some set on the hard level to make it all through with no help All in all this is a great purchase September 7, 2013
OMG AWESOME I was captivated in the first 15 minutes. LOVE the graphics. Love the ride through the story. Love the game. September 6, 2013
Full of enchantment!!! This game is the epitome of enchanting. Beautiful graphics, relaxing music and mystical creatures. the evil fog's face is a bit creepy but it makes this game more exciting knowing that you have to defeat him. It is perfect for the player who is looking for enchantment and it is full of adventure from the very beginning. Before you click "play", take the time to enjoy the ride that takes you for a tour around this mysterious new world. It's almost as if you are on some kind of hover craft! There are a lot of cut scenes but they are interesting enough to not leave you feeling bored. Wish there were more games like this one. I highly recommend! September 9, 2013
Charming Fairy Tale This review is upon completion of the game. First, I've never lingered over opening credits before beginning the game. The beginning sequence artwork is so lovely, I watched it several times through, just enjoying the 'ride' through the sequence. Not a new storyline by any means, but drawn so charmingly and with memorable characters, it engages one's sympathy and brings involvement into the game. The voices are well done, the music adding rather than distracting from the charm. Fey is a worthy guardian and Jane a dedicated searcher and heroine. The quizzes and puzzles are not very challenging but the entire tone of this game is to relax and de-stress rather than to challenge or invigorate so it's well-worth the time if one is looking to spend some enjoyable time chilling out in a lovely fantasy with a guaranteed happy ending. One could wish there were some accomplishments or rewards to be on the look out for but I won't quibble. The game takes long enough to be fulfilling and enjoyable. I don't know what the CE would add over the SE but I found it enjoyable enough that I'm sure I will play it again. Well done; it's nice to find games that aren't full of vampires and witches and curses but lovely artwork, characters and satisfying storyline. September 11, 2013
