Graphics are excellent. Storyline is simple to the point of nonexistence. HO scenes are ultra simplistic. Boring, boring, boring............

The HO scenes are too repetitive and look for same objects mostly in all scenes. Not enough variety - same 6 or 7 HO scenes to repeat. The recharge is so slow you wait 20 minutes with nothing to do until you can do them again. No way to earn more diamonds in order to play without spending money to go on.....not really a play for free unless you only play for 10 minutes each day till energy is recharged and HO's are recharged. VERY disappointed!

Another game of buying>why?
This game is NOT free. If you want to continue you have to pay for gems. WHAT? Plus it was not fun.

Boring and confusing
First off, this is very different from a lot of the games I usually play that have a more tightly-bound storyline. This has a lot of back-and-forth between sites with little logic to it. It took me a while to figure out how I was supposed to interact with and provide items to different characters and then it seemed very cumbersome and unsatisfactory. I only played for about an hour before I became quite bored at finding the same hidden objects in the same sites over and over again.
On the positive side, the graphics and music are beautiful. I truly wish I could get into this game but I just become impatient with it and have no desire to continue further. Maybe it gets better, as some reviews have stated, but I'm just not willing to invest the time in it based on what I have experienced so far. I regret spending the money on it.

just could not get into this one
I really wanted to like this game and found it interesting but confusing and ultimately frustrating. there is no hint button, I kept getting stuck and it wanted me to sign in to get coins which made no sense to me. I had a key but it wouldn't let me use it to open a box. maybe it is me but I simply do not understand this game or how to play it. unfortunately I can't recommend this game. way too confusing.

didn't like it
There wasn't much to the game except searches. It didn't seem to go anywhere. Not my type of game.

I much prefer games with a strong story line and not just finding items and counting points. "Siberia 1 and 2 are examples of Excellent games and the Raven brook stories too.

VERY repetitive. Although not a big fay of HO games, I should have known better. About 4 hours into it, and you just keep doing the same things over and over again. good graphics though

Midnight Castle - feels like it takes all night!
Story line had a lot of possibilities, but the interface is clunky and distracts from the story. Blue Tea games are much smoother and let you get into the story. This is too much like going back to D&D - having to worry about gold to get to the next level. .
