The Far Kingdoms
Don't waste a credit on this one...
Can't believe how awful this game turned out to be. Such a waste of time and money. Not only was it poorly done, but had no flow, or challenge to it. The game developers pulled a fast one with this one. Absolutely no replay value as the initial game had nothing to recommend it.
Finished this game in record time, only a few hours of boring play, that I couldn't wait to be done with... Can't see what the others saw in it, and wished I'd researched it better. Makes me wonder if the reviews are generated by the developers.

Should have tried it first.
I NEVER buy a game without doing the trial first. Until now. My bad. First off, there is no voice over and I do not like reading conversation(s). Second, I hate playing music in a game because I find it distracting. I attempted 3 times to mute the music and it would not stay muted. I didn't make it 10 minutes before I got completely frustrated and angry. Never again. I will say this, the graphics are nice.

If only I'd known.
I played the 1 hour trial and decided to purchase. Big mistake. Once I figured out that the hint button didn't actually give you any hints it actually took me 2 hours to complete the game - including the 1 hour trial. Way too many match 3 games to be included in the HOS list of games. If I wanted match 3 I would have checked that list of games to buy. Out of all the games I own I think I have about 1% match 3. Characters are very static - just stand there, no action. All dialogue is written, no actual talking. The owl doesn't do anything, just sits with the amulet, and the frog looks soooooo bored guarding the hint button. Doesn't even close his eyes when waiting for the hint to refill.
If your playing expertise is even a fraction above beginner I would not recommend this game.

This is one of the worst games I have ever downloaded. No instructions. Guess what you have to do. Poor story line and too many match 3 (no instructions and not the usual play) and HOS for the quest. I left after 30 min

Around and Around I go
I loved the game until I got stuck in the same place as the others. The hint arrow says go to the tree but when you get there the hint arrow points back to where you just came from. After doing this over and over looking for something I missed, I'm fed up and uninstalling the game.
