Jane Angel 2: Fallen Heaven
Fun Game, great voice overs, non boring hidden objects
I almost missed this gem of a game. I enjoyed this game played for 5 hours taking my time. The mini games I basically skipped. The hidden object screens are more than just a list you move when the list becomes dim meaning it is found in another screen. The graphics are clear, hidden object screens beautifully done.
Voice overs and characters you meet are just as good as top rated developers. Storyline is interesting and I will be doing some research after game. Highly recommend to try this free game. There were no glitches like the well known devs lately. I like more adventure than hidden object lists and this game satisfied my desire to solve mysteries. I don't know if this is a new Game Developer but I am interested in seeing more from them. In my opinion Game very well done.

Really great game!
Only short review, this is a great game having interesting story, graphics and music are good and I'm really amazed at gamers giving this game a one/two stars just because they are expecting one more similar HOPA.
The game is really big ? many screens and places to explore. Several HO scenes are clear. Personally I was hooked by Biblical background and consistent game world.
And most important thing! This game is original. If you want to have new game experience you gotta buy it.

Overall this is an excellent game

Usually I don't write reviews but this game is really original so I 've decided to write one.
This is an unusual game with great graphics, deeply involving storyline and interesting characters.
Don't want to stop playing.

Fallen Heaven is a clever mystery and challenging!!!
I have to give thanks to Eugene_Duranin for this awesome adventure. I think if folks get past "freeing yourself from the ship" they will see the adventure really take off. I enjoyed the difficulty of the game. No maps, no walk thru's, just have to discover solutions. I loved the basement with the indian , the hospital section of the game, and the evil you encounter as you reach the ending. The ending is very surprising. Reviewers have under-rated this HOPA. I do not recommend for beginners.

Travel Back In Time To Save Your Sister Accused Of Witchcraft
Well first of all, if you're able to accomplish time travel, maybe the accusations are true! Jane Angel contacted her sister Nancy begging for help but when Nancy arrives at Jane's house she is met by a stranger in a mask. The stranger throws a book at her and suddenly they are both on a ship in the 1500's, Jane in shackles, Nancy a ghostly figure who fades in and out! You play the part of Jane who meets a fellow prisoner by the name of Lionel de Lozada who claims that his wife has been accused of witchcraft and is being held captive as well! As the two of you work together to escape, the pieces of the puzzle start to fall in place because the woman accused of witchcraft is Nancy!
I'm not going to claim that this is an over the top exciting adventure because at times I found the tasks and the re-visitations to the same rooms to be mundane. The graphics are clear but simplistic and void of details. With that being said, strangely this game in my opinion did have some entertainment value and would be a good choice for using that lingering credit. The compass will show directions available, and there are only two modes of difficulty. Each scene has several direction choices not just a back arrow to the previous location, and the name of the room or area will be shown as well. The mini games are entertaining but fairly easy such as "blocks" where you have to move blocks of different sizes up and down or sideways in order to unblock the main tile. Another puzzle involved 3 discs that turned when clicked on as well as a center disc that turned with the goal of manipulating colored sections of the 3 discs by using the center disc to distribute the sections to the 3 smaller discs until the 3 smaller discs were each a solid color, red, blue and green. I actually liked the concept of the Hidden Object scenes, which often covered more than one area, the items to find were still the same they just weren't always crammed into one scene. Another feature I haven't seen before was the fact that as you re-visited the previous HOS, there were inventory items to be found, not in the form of a HOS, it was just there to pick up such as a fan that was on a shelf in the HOS. Again, you probably (ya never know) aren't going to consider this the most exciting game you've ever played, but it has a good story, some good puzzles and an "out of the box" concept for hidden objects. Some of the tasks might surprise you because you have to stop and figure out a logical solution, others are quite simple solutions, enjoy!

Interesting sequel to Jane Angel: Templar Mystery
Templar Mystery was one of the first games I bought (which seems like ages ago now) and I thoroughly enjoyed it as an introduction to HO/Adventure games.
This sequel, though a little dated in comparison to some of the games we have today, is intriguing. I don't remember the game that well but I cannot see the connection to today's offering. Will maybe have to play it again first.
I found it a pleasant, reasonably challenging game, though the navigation is sometimes a bit tricky.
It is definitely worth a try especially if you do not do this genre too often and want a gentler start to more demanding adventure games. Worth a credit/coupon for sure.
Give it a try!

Sort of a Mixed Bag Here
I liked this game. I think it could have been improved by making it either a HOG or an adventure game. Trying to combine the two in this particular game didn't work too well. However, I do like these little gems that pop up as stand alone SE games. There is a lot of traveling to do to find what you are looking for. It is a fairly easy game as far as adventure games go, but combining it into a HOPA makes it a good challenge. There are dark places in some areas and some items are small. However, I found the game to be very creepy with perfect ambient sounds and music. I only played the demo thus far, but enjoyed it. I love when something different than the usual "find the screwdriver", "unscrew the screws" is offered. I suggest you try the demo and see if it is a game you like. It took a bit into the demo for the game to start to flow and pick up speed (for me at least).
