Forgotten Riddles: The Moonlight Sonatas
Different hidden object game
I bought this game back in 08, it was very colorful with sharp graphics, I find it interesting with the riddles, it was my first game of this type and I truly enjoyed very much.
The challenge level was good, no frustrating or hard but it did challenge me enough.

Hard to see some of the Hidden items
Plus = This is a different style game, where you have to solve the riddles to advance to the next scene. The best part of the game (for me) was the music, if you like beautiful classical music you will enjoy the soundtrack for this game.
Minus = I was not able to finish the game because many of the items in later scenes are hidden in detailed settings. Even with my 21" wide screen monitor I could not see them, so I have never finished the entire game. However, I have gone back under different profiles just to enjoy the musical background.

I absolutely loved this game but I had one major downfall!
I literally finished this game within the demo and it took less than a hour playing the full version to complete it.
I think this is because I'm experienced in HO games and I didn't find the riddles too complicated, but I was disappointed as I really liked how unique this game was.

Riddlers will love it!
I am really enjoying this combination of riddles and HO. AND - a biographical story line to boot! Not too hard, but a few stumpers in the riddles.

Out of the Ordinary
Intriguing story about a fictional composer (Francis von Amadeus), and his patron?s (Johann) household in the 19th century. The house later became an abandoned opera house. Neighbors talk about a ghostly figure making appearances and mysterious music playing from the opera house and you are investigating.
Visual effects are beautiful, very detailed and most are true to the period. Music is relaxing, accompanied by good sound effects of thunder and lightning for atmosphere. 10 chapters, each with a varying number of locations to investigate. There are two endings for the story, depending on whether you play the Apprentice or Archaeologist mode (a reason to play at least twice).
A refreshing and unique play on HOS. Instead of a list, you must solve riddles in order to determine what you must find. You also encounter secret room puzzles, in which you must put items back into the picture, causing a change in the scenery. The next time you are investigating the secret room, you will have to switch back and forth between the initial scene and the new scenery to solve the riddles. I found this quite fun. Caveat: If you leave the game without having placed all the items back in the secret room puzzles, you will need to restart that puzzle.

not for me
I wasted my money. If you like riddles then you get this one. Not a HO game at all. I did not play it long at all. Better play the trial first.

Hidden Object and Puzzles
Good story line.
-Great Graphics and Sounds (No voice overs)
-High End Puzzles
-Riddles you Have to solve
Not an Adventure game Just Hidden Objects, Puzzles and Riddles (Lots of Riddles)
Different twist on getting more Hints as well. But they are Limited if A Lot of Hints is your thing This might be a Con for you/

Strictly Hidden Object, barely an adventure.
I didnt like this game too much. The story started off good, but the gameplay got very repetitive and somewhat boring the second half of the game. It is strictly hidden object themed, and barely any adventure. If you like just looking for items in a roomful of stuff, then you might really enjoy this, because that is mostly what you do. You dont walk through levels and find hidden doors or use objects to open new pathways. You click on a room and find items. Thats it. If you like adventure, you might be disappointed, so play a trial before purchasing.

I opened the game, and really liked the music that was playing, and I seldom listen to the music on games. From what little I saw, the graphics were outstanding. Then I quit before the first riddle was finished. Why? I really really don't like games that are timed. I play games to kick back and relax and the last thing I want is for the games to be timed. Too bad, I was really looking forward to playing this game. I downloaded it today, along with the other riddle game 'The Mayan Princess'. After seeing the first one I decided to go ahead and check out the princess one in the hopes that maybe it wouldn't be timed. Alas, it was. Why can't game creators give us the option to play timed, or not?? Almost all of the new games these days DO give us that option; in fact it's not even considered in most of them, it's a given that they're not timed. From what little I saw of both these games I believe I would have enjoyed playing them. I wish they had not been timed.
