Esoterica: Hollow Earth
A Waste of time
I thought this game was going to be huge, how disappointed l was when the portal suddenly opened and the game was over. I thought being close to a gigabyte, it was going to give some decent gameplay that would last, had it clocked in one day. Sorry l wasted a credit on this one. Will teach me to read the reviews in the future. Don't bother with this one.

Tedious or Trivial
Every mini-game was either too simple or too simple and too tedious to even care about. The style and story were OK but needed a lot more fleshing out.

NOT for the visually impaired!!!
I am sad to say that this game is a huge disappointment for me and I am writing a negative review. I only made it about 14 minutes before uninstalling.
This game seems to have been done by amateurs and is extremely unpolished and very difficult on the eyes and ears.
1. There were numerous grammatical errors and typos right from the get-go, which I find super annoying.
For example: "I need to go do London" etc.
2. My vision is decent, but the text in this game is ultra teeny and uses probably the smallest font I have ever seen in a HOPA.
If that is not bad enough, the text disappears before you are finished reading it and is cut off on the top of the screen in some areas. There definitely needs to be a continue button in all games like this.
3. Right from the beginning the game is more "clicky" than "thinky". You are presented with an extremely easy puzzle that requires a good length of time to click, click, click, to get it completed. Yawn! I prefer games that have me use my brain to figure things out than just easy time-killers.
4. The voice overs were absolutely awful in my opinion. The characters' voices were unbearably irritating, especially of the young girl. She was really sqeaky.
The only thing that I liked was the art style of this game. The colors were lovely and the art was in a unique style from the usual.
I could not go on with this game. All the factors I mentioned, gave me a headache and I could not get past them. The only redeeming quality was the graphics, which were unique.
I really hope to see improvements in the next game by this developer. Please test and proof read your games before putting them out.
Thanks for your time!

Worst game ever
This is my new candidate for worst game ever. There is absolutely nothing good about this dog. Artwork is very amateurish. VOs are the worst I have ever seen. Puzzles are stupid. At least the HOS are average, well, almost. The story might be OK, but I couldn't stand to even finish the demo to find out. I wonder what garbage pile BF dug this from.
