Not As Good As I Expected
The visual and sound was tops; however, I simply got tired of dusting and digging my way through the game. I am not the greatest player, but, I felt disappointed.

This is the first installment of the "electric power beetle" series in the Hidden Expedition franchise. Normally, I no longer play hidden object games that feature H.O. puzzles on every screen, and little else. However, this game really surprised me. The hidden object puzzles are just at the right challenge level, made more interesting by the quest to find all of the "hint beetles" (finding 5 camouflaged beetles in a hidden object scene entitles the player to an additional hint), as well as the listed objects. What makes the game even more interesting is the case where one screen requires the player to find an object that is needed to close out another screen. There are brain teasers thrown in between some of the H.O. puzzles that are quite challenging. All of the puzzles, regardless of type, were fun to play. The storyline, documented in journal pages that are acquired in each hidden object scene, is clear, understandable, and actually pretty humorous. Lastly, that background music is terrific, if a bit repetitive. The only cons I have are that some of the hidden object scenes are so dark that it's difficult, if not impossible, to find all of the items - and that there are point penalties for non-target clicks (I never liked that aspect of hidden object games).

Wonderful game, hogs flow nicely with the storyline and the adventure your on.Puzzles are challenging and fun but there are no hints as to how to solve them. Music and graphics are well done and pleasing to the eyes and ears. You need a sharp eye for the hogs and there is a point system ranking you on time, hints used, for an overall score but you can ignore that and enjoy the adventure.

What's not to like???
Classic HO adventure. Well-drawn graphics, HO scenes just the right level of difficulty; not too easy, not too hard. Same with the puzzles.
The music was well done too, and the Professor's wisecracks were the frosting on the cake.
Overall, lots of light-hearted fun and a pleasant way to pass a few hours.

After playing 3 times, found the objects got a bit boring as not many changes. Am I missing something here as the end seems to be so blunt & nowhere showing a list of scores to improve on and no further levels.

Great game for the inner explorer
I loved this game, from the scenery to the music to the story line. I'm definitely a nature girl and an explorer by heart. Also I just love puzzle games so this was the perfect fit.

Excellent graphics and challenging puzzles... This game is great with beautiful HO scenes and the letters you find are funny. I was stuck in one puzzle so I gave up and tried again the next day. Some parts are quite challenging and make you think. I like it a lot.

Great Jungle Adventure
Beautiful graphics make this enticing, the objects are sometimes very difficult to find making this a challenge and the puzzles make you think. This is really a fun game.
