Laura Jones and the Gates of Good and Evil
Good for a rainy day
Varied and interactive game - HOS (sometimes several of the same object, sometimes different objects), puzzles, tangram, find differences, etc..
Start with 3 Hints, but in all the scenes have question marks to be collected for extra hints.
Many dialogues, but you can skip. Music sounds good, but for being repetitive, tires.
Game is not difficult, and always has sparkles where you have to interact. Tutorial and comments appear all the time.
A good entertainment without requiring reasoning.
Ok to pass the time.

Good free hour of fun - not sure I'd buy it
I've played a lot of adventure games and this one was pretty standard. The problem was that it was standard, nothing special. Nothing bad, just nothing great. Great for a FREE hour, but I don't think I'll buy it unless it happens to be a deal of the day and it's been a while since I've played it. Plus, since there's no walkthrough, I have no idea how much time is left in the game. It seems to me that I've played at least half of it since there are supposed to be 6 artifacts (per the description# and I've finished 3 by the end of the trial. Also on the sidebar between intervals it tells you how many sections you've done, and I'd finished 10 or 11, and it appeared those filled up half of the space available for the section slots #hard to really tell#. I don't buy games that I can complete in another hour or two because it seems like a waste of money to me.
On the good side, the characters were interesting and the hints, though limited, were easy to find more of #look for the question marks hidden in the scenes).
I recommend this game for the free trial fun of it.

Rather basic in concept, Laura's adventure is pretty simple and standard with a fair storyline. The visuals are good and brightly colored, the HO Scenes manageable though at times a bit boring like having to find 30 balls or 15 toys. Some are cluttered other much more tidy. Hints are limited.
The linearity doesn't allow you to travel freely; each new scene is available, and shown on a map, after completeing the previous one
The hunt and use of.important items is easy and very traditional.
The minigames are okay: tangrams, pipeline style, find the differences, etc... One of them is funny: you have to feed a cat affected with bulimia. All minigames are replayable after they have been unlocked and some of them can be skipped.
Interaction with the different characters is done via scripted dialogs. No voice-over.
A game that won't blow your socks off but can be considered as a relaxing filler for rainy days and beginners.

average and easy but booring
Not bad but not great. Something to do. The HOS are ok and the puzzles are good. Old type game.
