Autumn's Treasures: The Jade Coin
OK but not great
When I first started this game, I almost quit because the item pieces were so difficult to find. However, I stuck with it and found it to be a good game EXCEPT for the girl interrupting A LOT with a lot of unnecessary chatter, which slowed things down, and was quite aggravating to me. Some of what she said was just "mickey mouse" garbage. I just wanted to move on and think for myself more. But that's just me. Otherwise it was an enjoyable game.

An interesting game
This is the kind of game that works really well playing one chapter, then putting it away for a while, then getting it out for another chapter, and so on. This is the story of Autumn and how she's looking for her grandfather's jade coin. She travels all over the world, and that's where the chapters come in. Each new country has its own chapter. You have to find pieces of objects and combine them into a tool you can use. The length of the game is good. I spent about an hour on each chapter. Every chapter has 3 or 4 areas to look in, and you have to keep going from area to area to find all the pieces. Autumn meets different characters in her travels, some helpful and very unhelpful. She also finds pages from her grandfather's journal and letters that explain what has happened to the coin. In between game chapters there are fairly simple mini games. I liked playing the game, but could only do it a chapter at a time, just because it was frustrating. In my opinion the pieces of the objects are too well hidden. Some are the exact color of the background, and I had to use the hint button for help for several of these pieces. But I did enjoy playing the game to the finish to see how it all worked out. I recommend the game as long as you take into consideration the pieces that are hard to find and the old-fashioned appearance of the game.

Time Consuming Wasteful
It is truly an OLD game (NO strategy quide), so you are on your own with this one. I Had played it long ago when I first started with BF but completely forgot how "time consuming" it honestly was for me at this time of my HO games. I usually call myself an "Expert" at the HO games, but this game just reminded me of just how "lost" I could get in going this far back in just trying to find older games that I used to love to play.
If you have ALOT of time on your hands, with nothing else to do and just want to waste your time on an "oldie", this one is made for you.
OH........and if you like "pieces, parts, and more pieces and parts"....................you will love this one.
