Dream Chronicles 2: The Eternal Maze
Not just a maze game
I bought the other games in this series but was put off this one by the title as I do not like mazes.However, I bought it as a Daily Deal after trialing it and not encountering any mazes. It turns out that there are only two, one about a third of the way through the game and one at the end. Both are fairly small and you can get a map for the second one whilst going through the game.
As others have said, the items you need to find to complete various tasks are often tiny and well hidden. Also, I think that they are not always in the same place so although this adds to the replay value of the game, it can be frustrating and several times I had to resort to randomly clicking all over the screen. Fortunately there is no penalty for this.
When you comnplete the game you are given a score and title but this does not mean much unless you play again.

Strange but interesting game
This game is quite unique. The graphics are good but the objects you need to find are either tiny or hidden behind other objects. The puzzles are quite easy, except for the last maze... This game is all about patience, good eyes, no stress and enjoying the strange atmosphere. It took me about 2 1/2 hours.

Not as good as first one, but ok.
I liked, not LOVED, this game. It was definitely more challenging than many. The HOs were often difficult to find, but I kinda' liked that for a change since soooo many are too easy. I did have to look at the walkthru a couple times just to get a hint as to where a REALLY hidden object was! I liked collecting the dream jewels and solving the secret riddle that gave you a clue you might be able to use in this quest or later in the game. The puzzles weren't too hard and mostly entailed finding all the objects to solve them. There is NO skip or hint button so, if you're stuck, it's definitely a trip to the walkthru! Rather short game and abrupt ending which always leaves me cold. But as a whole, I liked the game and recommend it.

Fun Simple Adventure Game
Like the first in the series, this is a fairly simple game with not a lot of challenge. It also is a point click adventure were you need to find objects & resolve problems. The storyline from the first continues in this sequel, & like the first, the graphics are nice. However, there has been no improvement to the size of the things you need to spot, they are still quite minute. There are some hints in this game, but only if you collect the dream pieces, which like the other items are quite small & hard to spot.
Again, not a long game, would recommend for a bit of light afternoon fun only.

Good series of games, a little frustrating
There are no hints for this game so the puzzles can take a very long time to complete. The hidden objects are also tiny. I think it is a good game, and it is not too long, but I gut stuck on scenes quite a few times which was really frustrating. I still liked it though, though not as much as the dark parables or mystery case file games.

Continuing of a Story
Part 2 of the series so I got it and found it just as difficult in sections as the first game. Good storyline, great graphics, sounds and animations and yes difficult in parts. In my opinion the dream Child series is for intermediate to expert players. Some may disagree but this is just my opinion after all -smiles-

Only ok game
Objects to find are very small. No real hints to help you keep going. At times things sparkle, but since there aren't any hints...you don't know what you are supposed to do. I'm constantly pointing and clicking, in order to figure out what to do next which makes the game boring and/or frustrating at times. Have tried to play it several times over the past year but its not holding my interest, so I never finish it. I turned off the music so I can't comment on this. I can't really recommend this game. as there are a lot more interesting and fun games from Big Fish to play.

Kitty's Thoughts: Eternal Maze of Frustration is More Like it.
If you played the first game, by all means it has not improved. The highest I would like to discuss is the graphics. Even though it's very nice... I kinda get bored when I feel like I am looking at the same backgrounds too much. However, looking nice doesn't make up for the terrible level of challenge or fun. As far as you see, things are very hard to see in this game. I didn't mind it in the first game because atleast your scenery changes from one place to the next. However, there are some things that have blended all too well. I don't even wear glasses and I feel like I need them to see in this game. However, this drags the fun factor down a lot. If you are looking for a game with more fun, you might as well look the other way. I strongly suggest the orignal first 1 over the second one. Regardless, that it has similar problems... atleast it's not down right boring. The story on the other foot is interesting, but I really don't care to play anymore to even finish the strory, I really just don't have the time and I work a lot.
