Flux Family Secrets: The Ripple Effect
I love this game. The graphics are beautiful, the sound and storyline are good. It is not overly difficult, but great pure fun. Every time I play I enjoy it. If you want to relax and just have fun this is the game.
Check out the sequel, too. The CE has a fun bonus that really ties the 2 together. Can't wait for the next installment.
I recommend this game.

Overall great quality fun
The beauty of the game was in the following well thought out play: Though scenes got visited several times, making it a bit familiar to the player,but one got to see several different viewpoints of the scenes which made it not boring to look at. Some history was interwoven. It made for a good starting point of discussion. Mini games good but a bit similar in set up. Perhaps a bit more variety? Great mild fun without any scary or off putting scenes.

The best part of this game is the style in which you put together the hidden objects, to form another little puzzle. The animation is just great, and the music wasn't bad either. I stumped me in a few spots, but I just had to keep going. :D

Good Game, Partly Historical
Storyline: Very well developed. Although the story is not entirely new, it is creatively presented to remain fresh. As Jesse, you?ll travel through time to find and replace some of the most important discoveries and treasures of some of history?s significant historical figures in 10 subjects such as literature, science, pioneers and music in various time periods. For each subject, 3 historical figures will need your help in recovering some of their important work. As a bonus, you?ll learn some interesting facts about each of the 10 characters.
Artwork is gorgeous, colorful and very detailed. Instead of the traditional HOS, you?ll find parts of objects and place them in their proper places. An object completed for the first character may be used in the third characters location. But since you only get 3 locations per subject, there is very limited backtracking. You?ll also encounter a few circles into which objects must be placed. There is a built-in magnifying glass for the HOS to help find those ?long skinny sticks." About half-way through, you?ll start looking for pieces of a ?Delphi.? Not to spoil it, you?ll use the Delphi at the end.
Each location has several puzzles and mini-games: a few were challenging but most were rather easy. The developers made an effort to try to give them a fresh look. A helpful hint system ? it may hint what to do next or just show you where something is and recharges speedily. The game tracks your time playing. If you choose to skip a mini-game, 20 minutes will be added to your time. Fairly lengthy game - took me about 6 hours (which I think is close to what it took the first time I played it). Replayable since you?ll get different objects the 2nd time playing.
Overall, the Flux family Secrets games are fun to play and this is the game that got me hooked.

The history game of the year
this game is awesome! It helps you learn very much about history. it may be takes you some time to finish it but if you like it you wont stop playing it. i maybe finished the game three times, i always manage to play it again. So if you like HO games and want to learn more about our history this is the perfect game

Excellent game with really well done hidden object scenes. There are some puzzles, mainly easy but mostly HOS so this is a must play for all who enjoys good HOG.
Also, graphics are cute, colorful with clear and sharp images.
GREAT game, I would play it again!

This game presents historical events & facts in a fun and challenging hidden object and puzzle game. There is all sorts of puzzles to tickle the brain & test eye and hand coordination.

The game has a nice approach. There are a few puzzles but its mostly HO. There is 10 levels for which you have different type of History theme. ( Music,Flight,ect.) The levels aren't too hard and you can complete in total 4-5 hours, less if you are really good or use a lot hints. The hints are endless for each level you just have to wait for the bar to be full which makes it less changeling. It nothing extreme special but if your looking for a entreating HO game to sit back and play.

Not a bad game. It is HO and not much for finding clues. Gets a little old for me. Has a good education background.
