10 Days To Save the World: The Adventures of Diana Salinger
different hidden object adventure game
This hidden object adventure game is different from many out there. Interesting and exciting storyline, however, there are considerable gaps in the story that make it unclear why a decision was made, how they happened to get from this situation to that. The puzzles are good, some hidden objects are a little difficult to find because dark, but makes it fun - more challenging. Artwork is unique - not the usual super graphics or cartoon-look; these panels were hand drawn, hand colored, and watercolor painted; refreshing.

Dudville, Thy Name is 10 Days...
Sometimes an excellent story, memorable characters and interesting puzzles team up to make a stellar hidden object game. This will NOT be one of those times. It's rather unfortunate, because what starts as an interesting premise about Atlantis devolves into muddling, confusing gameplay.
This is your standard HO game, and there is plenty of finding to do. Most of what you collect makes sense (wood for a campfire# and just as much of it doesn't. If your favorite pastime is finding 15 randomly placed jigsaw pieces and then assembling said jigsaw, generally with no piece rotation and the pieces being right next to where they go, this is your heaven on earth.
As to the story, it's fairly entertaining and developed with decent cutscenes only to end abruptly and with nothing resolved. It's as if you eavesdropped into an interesting conversation and then gave up halfway through. Translation is a problem, as you'll see from the sentence structure and word usage. I don't mind a game not giving you complete fulfillment at the end, but this is not even close.
Visually, the game is okay. The cutscenes have a hand-painted type of quality that I found different and pleasing. No voice acting to be had, and the music is insistent and not that interesting. Lots of special effects, like fire exploding and gates opening and closing. Nothing to writer home about, but I've seen worse.
Challenge level is minimal. The only difficulties you'll encounter are locating impossibly small objects in dimly lit caves #and the hint recharge is sloth-like), wondering how you suddenly had inventory like a fire extinguisher appear when it wasn't there before, and explaining where your money went when you bought this dud.

This is a b-rated, boring hidden object/puzzle game. It's not the worst game in the world, but when there are so many others to choose from I wouldn't recommend this one. I couldn't even finish the one hour trial.

Short Hidden Object Game
The game is okay. It didn't take very long to finish. Standard hidden object game.

game time way to short!
I nearly had the whole game finished in the one hour trial time. I was disappointed to have wasted my money on this one.

This game had an interesting story line. The HO scenes were okay some of the objects were hard to find. I just played the demo, but could tell within ten mins of it this was not the one for me.

Didn't enjoy this hog. The items were difficult to see and find. The watercolor pictures were nice. I got bored very quickly and didn't make it through the first ten minutes of game. Didn't hold my interest very long.

Boring & Short
What a waste of $9.99! Run! Don't walk away from this game.

This was awful. No instructions with the mini games, the hint button took an age to recharge and you needed it to find out what to do. Comic book graphics and easy listening music did nothing to enamour me! BORING!

The story line was awful and the puzzles were extremely simple. The hidden object scenes were slightly more challenging but it took me about 45 minutes to complete the entire game. Apparently there is or will be a sequel to the game but nothing about this game made me want to go out and get the sequel. Save your money.
