Samantha Swift and the Golden Touch
Fun characters, great atmosphere
Sam Swift is the female Indiana Jones. All the Swift games are pretty easy in regards to the HO scenes, but the characters are fun and the plots are well thought-out (though not perfect). Definitely worth the 7 bucks on Big Fish. These games might not be hard, but you never get tired of playing them over and over. this games has some of the best graphics of the series. Also, you should play them in order; this one is second. Roses of Athena is the first game.

Hidden Object Game Review
SSmith and the Golden Touch is so exciting that you do not want to stop playing because of the excellent story and hidden object searches.

LOTS OF HOS
Almost 6 hours. Join Samantha on archeological digs to find items for her Museum of Lost Secrets and find the treasures of Midas. The story is nice, although I lost in interest in parts of it (since this is the 3rd or 4th time I?ve played it). Of course, our protagonist has an enemy after her goodies. In the first scene, you will find a scanner which you can use for hints and a PDA which will provide information about the museum, Sam?s contacts, and a travel log. You can also customize your settings here, including the color of the PDA.
Plenty of HOS. You must finish the HOS and puzzles in each room before you gain passage to another. There is no back and forth. Many HOS ? each scene has two HOS lists. Items in blue are hidden and require you to use a tool in your inventory to find. You can click on an item and see its silhouette in the scanner. If you then click on hint, you will be shown its exact location. You must have hints available, though. Scour each scene when you first arrive for a lightning bolt to get additional hints. There is no limit to the number of hints you hold.
Relaxing piano music ? track changes periodically. Replayable ? a new list of objects is generated each time you play and the location of the lightning bolts and items may move. Items in the HOS are fairly displayed and the items in the scenes have a fair approximation to the time period portrayed. Colorful artwork ? very few dark spots. Puzzles are varied and not too difficult. Nicely put together.

Great for the younger players or laid back types like me!
This is a nice solid, long game, good for younger players because you can view images & also locate where they are, unfortunatley the special hidden items are not as easy, so some assistance will probably be needed. I have grands and wish there were hidden object games for the "not yet reading", or "learning to read" levels. This is one of the few I've found that is 1/2 way there.

Samatha Swift and the Golden Touch
Chess Geber hires Samantha Swift to find Alexander's Scroll of Wealth. Unfortunately, Chess isn't as innocent as she seems. Can Samantha stop her former employer from acquiring the Midas touch?
The plot is similar to the last one with a different target in mind. This time, Samantha Swift has to reassemble the heart of Midas and find each one of his desires. The same characters from the last game help her out along with a few new ones. One of the new characters comes with a scene that references the movie Casablanca.
The game play is just like the last one. You go from scene to scene collecting objects. The game will add some objects to your inventory so you have an easier time completing the list. You can also collect hints in the form of lightning bolts. Oh, and advancing through the game will require you to complete some mini-games.
This game is not deep and yet fun. I give it 6 out of 10; a good way to spend your time.
