The Far Kingdoms
fun at first
I like the combination of match 3 and hidden objects but they were of poor quality. The hint button took me in a loop that I couldn't get out of so I gave up! This was the first time I uninstalled a game that I had bought.

Simplistic and Dull
Looks beautiful, Wonderful music, - but boring game play and a simplistic system made this game a drag. One of the few games I quit before the end. Maybe good for beginners.
Pro's: Music is Majestic, Graphics are Pretty.
Cons: Interface is slow, games are easy and dull - 8 out of 10 are match 3 but they click instead of roll so they are slow. Junk Pile hidden object scenes with no interaction (random clicking will clear the objects). Story line is dull and walks you through every step. Childish and repetitive.

not worth the time
While I was playing the demo it was fine, but after I purchased it there was not much more to it. Usually it takes me a while to finish the came - this one did not last the day and I was not playing constantly.

I decided to try this game and it was just awful! I have seen some cheesy games but this one takes the cake. You have the match 3 games at times, you have to get the "special" object to the bottom. Or you have the HO, which I like. The graphics were okay, not great. All in All, I am glad the I only did this as a trial and did not buy it. It would have been a total waste of money..

Too many Match 3's!
I really wanted to like this game, and I was enjoying it as it had lots of good coloring, smooth transitions, and it had a feel of the Awakened games which I loved playing. But after I'd played the fifth Match 3 after five minutes game play, I was bored! Its just Match 3 games one after another after another after another! Sorry, this should be listed under Match 3, not Hidden Object. I only had one HO scene while I was playing. Uninstalled after 10-15 minutes.
Recommended only if you like doing Match 3 games! Not for the higher level players who enjoy adventure games with a bit of a challenge.

Opinion after playing the demo. This is one of the games that looks like made by a very young, just starting team, inspired by some older games. On the graphical level, the game is ok, though far behind such games like Awakening or Dark Parables. Sound is just boring, not to mention that at least for me, changing the options didnt give anything. HOS, although simple, are somewhat annoying. The scenes have too many indistinguishable little items that were meant to look "artistic" and sometimes there is more than one item fitting the description. Also the 3-match games are overly simple; perhaps the authors should have focused on only one type of play. In overall, this is a type of a game that can be saved by its story. Unfortunately it is not the case here, it is as cliche and shallow as can get. Princess came back to see her kingdom under attack, she is the chosen one, go help her - there you go, a frog and a pigeon for the road.

Not for me either
I have a couple of games that combine match 3 with hidden objects which I truly enjoy and return to when time is short. I was hoping this might be another, particularly because the brightness is adjustable. But no. Although the options appear to allow the music to be shut off, when you close the options box it's Ba-a-a-ack! Some people will not buy a game which has no walkthrough; I won't buy one where the music cannot be shut off. Many if not most reviewers liked the music, but I can testify that if it is playing at the same time as Isaac Albeniz on the radio, the combination is horrendous. I barely lasted ten minutes. Too bad because I might have liked it.

Frustrating for a match 3
I like to play these for some mindless entertainment in the evenings and this game is both simplistic and frustrating. The match 3 games where you have to bring down the "special objects" are so frustrating it takes all the fun out of the game. I don't mind a challenge but one game can take an hour just trying to get through. I don't like the game enough to power through. This is a disappointing purchase and I'll be deleting it which I've never done once I've made a purchase.
