as well as to be expected
This is a well put together hidden object game. Add finding the 3 gems in each screen.

Good time passer
This is the second on in the Amazing Adventures series I've played. This is a standard HOG with mini puzzles to help chose the next location. The only issue I had with it was that it dragged out, but I combated that by playing other games in between.

Older HOP good for the whole family
This is an older game and the graphics are just a bit grainy on my newer machine. The quality is still good enough for the game to be enjoyable though. The music is appropriate and unobtrusive. There is no other soundtrack.
You are searching for the pieces of a valuable diamond and your search takes you to wonderful, scenic places all over the world. In each location you perform a few timed HOS and a mini-puzzle. The HOS occur in scenes appropriate for the location you're visiting and they are nice to look at. They are not difficult at all even with a timer. I was able to complete about half the game during the hour demo.
The puzzles are also pretty easy but fun. As you leave each location you will learn a little bit about the location and its historic significance.
Overall, this is a very easy older HOP game that's good to while away a little time when you don't want to stress your brain too much. The locations are fun to visit and learning a little bit about them was interesting.
The game would be perfect for a person just beginning to play HOP games and even more so for someone who wanted to play a game with their kids. There's nothing in it inappropriate for children and they can learn something while they play.

I did not like when it showed I used hint when I did not use. It took points off which should not have happen

No storyline, but good hidden object game
The graphics are fine and the objects are neither too hard nor too easy to find (for me anyway). However, "Amazing Adventure" may be a little misleading, as it makes me think of exciting storylines. There isn't any story, it is only hidden objects and mini games. Still, for those who don't like to bother with story lines, this would be great. I'm about halfway through the game, and while it does get a bit repetitive revisiting the same scenes over and over, I enjoy relaxing with this game and intend to keep it.

Another Classic HO Game
GAME COMPLETED SEVERAL TIMES
Story: After pieces of an ancient tablet begin appearing around the globe, the museum calls you in to hunt them down and follow the clues to the greatest gem the world has ever known -- the famous "World Diamond".
Developer: PopCap Games
Release Date: Sep 2008
Extras: High Scores, Times and Collectibles, Unlimited HOs
Your mission in this sequel to The Lost Tomb is travel around the world to recover the World Diamond. The scenes are all over the place, and therefore give the game more variety than its predecessor. Other than that, slightly better graphics, and a couple of different puzzles, this game is identical to the first.
The formula is still strictly one static noninteractive HO scene followed by a puzzle: multiply by 25. You return to each location randomly and often. As before, they do have collectibles that unlock unlimited play, and they are timed and scored.
Personally, I don?t like these games, but I think that are quite good examples of pure HO games, so if that?s what you like, I?d recommend it.
