Mystery of Unicorn Castle
The Hidden Object scenes are challenging, especially if one is new to these types of games - be prepared to grope around in the dark on some of them . . . The story is OK, & the ending is somewhat rushed . . .
The game grew on me as I played it, & actually had fun with the hidden object scenes . . . Be careful of over-clicking or wrong clicks - there's a penalty to pay - Booooooo . . . !
Overall, a fun game . . .

I just love the game.Ofcourse I love any game that has a unicorn in it. My favorite part of the game would have to be the ending it made me tear up a little. I would like to see more games with unicorns in it. But this game is the best.

NEED TO READ THE DIALOGUE TO GET STORY
4 hours long. STORYLINE: Jane and others are summoned to a castle in England to settle an inheritance. Whoever finds the secret heart earns the castle. Find out the origin of an insanity curse on Jane?s family where most go insane and can never leave the castle. People start disappearing; there are secret rooms to explore; a unicorn to free. Satisfactory ending for most but not all characters. But I wasn?t satisfied with the finding and freeing of the unicorn ? there could have been more gameplay involved.
GAMEPLAY: Straightforward ? you select a highlighted room to explore in the castle. Several types of HOS: list of objects, silhouettes, objects that don?t belong and find pairs of objects. Scenes are generally not too crowded and not too dark. There are also a couple of rooms in which each half should be an exact replica of the other half, but you have to find the differences to expose levers to secret rooms. Puzzles vary, with gears and match 3 being quite common to unlock hidden areas. None of the puzzles are very difficult. There are a lot of background noises, particularly knocking and loud walking sounds, that are sort of spooky.
SUMMARY: Nice solid game, good graphics, well defined characters, and quite a bit of dialogue that is necessary for the story (but you can go as fast as you can read).

I'm not a big fan of of voice overs and hate live actors but WOW!!! This game has absolutely no animation!!! A drawing of the person speaking with printed dialogue. No actual movement through the game, just clicking on a room to enter. HOGs, HOGs and more HOGs and the mini games were the same 3 over and over and over again...put the gears in the right spot to get them all moving; spot the differences and match 3. Half the HOGs were silhouette and so many were absolutely impossible to even know what they were supposed to be, and frequently were hidden behind each other!!! This would be a good game for either an absolute beginner or a 13 year old girl who loves unicorns. But if you want adventure, a challenge and/or an interesting storyline, then definitely skip this one.

So SO game
This game has all the HOG scenes arranged on one page, you just have to click on the one or two that are open for you to choose. One thing I didn't like about this game is the puzzles....it was a variety of the same two puzzles. The HOGs were mostly rooms filled with junk that you had to clear the junk away in order to see the room. Too many silhouette games. The mis-click penalty was funny in that you had a newspaper and had to swat a ghost out of the room before you could continue the game. The hint button only refilled if you could catch 4 faeries that would appear flying around the scene. Some language and objects may be inappropriate for young players.

Maybe for Beginners only
if you like HOs from one room to the next you might like to try this. Some got 12 of this and 12 of that; most of the time list is given and almost all objects in the room you click on to get rid of junk. Some rooms are dark and you need to light up room slowly. Click on fairies to recharge hint. Penalty click releases ghosts. Mini games are very easy and repetitive. this is just too easy perhaps best for beginners to HO.

Another cool time passer
Can't believe I haven't left a review yet.
I replayed this one last year after getting my new computer so I can't comment much about the different aspects of the game. I do know that it is not overly challenging if you are intermediate or expert but it is a nice way to pass time if you don't want to work too hard.
Beginners might find this a little challenging but the game is enjoyable.
Even if I could remember, I wouldn't be able to comment about the sounds as I usually have them turned off so I don't annoy the others in my house.

Would not recommend this game at all!!
This game was very boring there is no animation what so ever, you have to read all the dialogue which makes it very long and drawn out. I would not recommend this game to anyone.
