Sprill: The Mystery of the Bermuda Triangle
I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game. It has levels of curiosity and suspense. Also you become anxious to find out about the Bermuda Triangle. Some of the levels are a bit challenging, but it's also fun.. There are levels where items are hard to discover but there is possibly some help.

Sprill needs to find the Greal Pearl for the Aliens!
The story line is kind of "hokey", but this IS Sprill, after all. Sprill was relaxing on his boat when, suddenly, he became dizzy and woke up at the bottom of the ocean, able to breathe. Aliens informed him, among the miasma of planes, boats and ships, that they have been looking forever and a day for the Great Pearl. THEY were the ones responsible for all the Bermuda Triangle disappearances. If someone helped them, they were sent back to the top. If not, well, they were stuck at the bottom of the ocean forever. OH NO!
The graphics are ok. There are a LOT of items in each location which are somewhat tiny. The music was fine. The sound effects ok. The noise made each time you found something or clicked on the wrong item was annoying.
There were no bonus levels that I could tell. If you found a ? in the location, you got an extra hint. You could have anywhere from 1 - 5 hints in each location. I hadn't figured out how that was calculated when the demo ended.
This is an HOG game (hidden object game) and nothing more. You go to locations (repeatedly and even more repeatedly) and look for a list of 10 items. Can't find something? Use one of those elusive hints. I kept going among 3 locations for the entire hour of the demo and there were plenty of other places to go.
I've played one other Sprill game on BFG (in fact, I own it) and it was entertaining, delightful and extremely LONG. I would venture to guess this also has some length but is not as much fun. I like a good HOG, but I want mine to be broken up with a mini game or something periodically.
The story line never went anywhere.
This would be good for any level of expertise. Be patient. The items can be difficult to find. And, if you're not about strictly finding objects, this game won't be fun for you.
So, do your best and find that great pearl so Sprill can get back to the surface!

My game had a glitch in one of the minigames.
I started out thinking this was a good game. But it has a glitch, at least the one does that I downloaded, on one of the minigames. In scene number two, the one in the middle, above, one of the minigames, it will not get past it. I have uninstalled it and downloaded it again, and it does the same thing, so I have quit playing it because of that. Other than that, the objects were not too hard to find, and I was enjoying myself. If you can continue on, and play the game, I would think you would like it, I am sorry I couldn't.
