Rescue at Raijini Island
I LIKED IT
Length: about 4 hours. I don?t know how people can say they played almost the entire game during the demo because it is rather long (you go around the island). I completed each stage rather quickly (1-3 minutes), with the exception of the puzzles (which have no clues). You might want to read "puzzles" below.
Storyline: explorers are sent to Rajini Island near Thailand and the world has lost touch with them for 3 months. You are sent to rescue them. While searching the island, you also learn about the goddess Rajini (for whom the island is named) and her mortal lover.
Gameplay: You get 5 hints in casual play for each stage. Each scene has about 3 stages of these: spot-the-differences, find 20 of something (food is a popular topic), the normal HOS list and finding silhouettes. The background of all scenes is a lush tropical island with a lot of greyish-whitish and sandy stone ruins. The objects are well blended, so expect to find a lot of green items in trees and shrubbery, white and sandy items in the ruins. You might have a normal HOS list, then silhouettes (with new items suddenly appearing) in the scene, then find 20 clocks which also suddenly appear. That is to say, the background remains the same, but the objects can change up to 3 times before moving on to the next scene.
Puzzles: After completing all the levels associated with a scene, you might wonder what to do because you are still in the same scene with no direction. Do this: First, look to see if you have any hints. If not, you are now at a puzzle. Second, look to see if there is an outline in your inventory which you must then find before you can complete the puzzle. Third, move your cursor around until you find something that has a description; it will be used in the puzzle. Fourth, for the puzzle itself, look in your journal because the clues for solving puzzles are sometimes there. There are no hints for the puzzles, and no walkthrough that I found, so you will have to go to the BF forums for help if you get hopelessly stuck. The puzzles do get tougher.
There is some animation which is good; music is okay. Graphics are good, except the backgrounds are very similar and objects are very well blended into the backgrounds. The ending was rather abrupt. If you play the demo and get to a couple of puzzles, you will know the flavor of the game. Some of you will be bored. Others will look forward to the challenges presented by the puzzles.

its boring and the music its so annoying I had to lower it straight down. graphics are nothing special and it is too repetitive.

waste of money and time
i thought it was another game and got it and it is horribly boring. same thing over and over. no real story and same pictures to find. this is made for a very young person and for amateur player who has not tried other games off this website that are much much better.
