Myths of the World: Stolen Spring
Okay, but their first one is better
The second game in the Myths of the World series by Eipix
Their first Myths of the World Game: The Chinese Healer was so good that I bought this game trusting it will be as good as it was,, however I was slightly disappointed that the game quality goes downhill after the first one.
There are 3 levels of difficulties and 1 custom. The game progresses slowly, giving you tasks to do in between objectives, maybe just to prolong the game?? The storyline itself is not the most original, kind of like snow queen who loves winter so much she didn't want spring to come, or something like that.
VO is good but characters animation is still a bit stiff. Movement of mouths and voice don't coordinate well, but this is not a big issue.
HOG and puzzles are relatively easy. The HOG can be switched to Match-3 game if you like to take a break finding objects. Be warned though that there's almost one HOG in every scene so this can get pretty annoying quickly.
One thing I really dislike about this game is their portraying cruelty to animals, very early in the game. This is one issue that I don't tolerate and disappoint me.
I am not sure if I will ever buy another game in the series unless they are as good as their first one, which I doubt but some people may still like this story so I will recommend this game for them.

Way too easy
Whilst the graphics and cutscenes are pretty good, the game is pretty boring and too easy. Most of the scenes have very few things to interact with, and there's no difficulty in working out where to use objects. It generally seems to go, walk into a scene, pick up a couple of objects, do a HOS, use most of the objects in the scene you're in (you will often find the objects before you find the 'puzzle' that you're supposed to be using them on, so there's no challenge in working out how you'd go about something, no wondering, hmm, where could I find a ladder, oh look, I already happen to have this ladder I picked up in the last scene, well that was difficult), go to the next scene, rinse and repeat. HOS had nothing special about them and were also pretty easy, mini-games were ridiculously easy. Pretty disappointing, and I can't even be bothered to finish this one. Not sure why such positive reviews from others.

Short and Easy
As an expert gamer, I played in super hard mode. The game was so simple, the puzzles didn't need any explanation and the overall play time was just a couple of hours and I took my time looking at all the graphics and listened to every dialog. I would suggest this game to a beginner only. 2013
