Lost Secrets: Ancient Mysteries
Fantastic Game Full of Fun & Relaxation :)
I have not had as much fun w/ a game in a long time. Great Graphics; Very Relaxing to play; Game is "Long" (and we all like that) and I just had such fun playing. Give it a Try.!

Good, Old Fashioned Relaxing Hidden Objects Game
Yes, it is a HIDDEN OBJECTS game.
Scenes are clear and bright. The lists of objects to find are long, but most objects are visible and distinguishable.
I like the hint system. You get one point for each object found, up to 15 points. You can buy hints for up to 5 points depending on the level of hint you want. I just finished 40 minutes of the demo and was able to complete a few scenes without the use of a hint.
If you are looking for a real challenge, or like hopping around from scene to scene and back again, this one is not for you. But if you just want to kick back and relax, this is a winner.

Good old fashioned HOG
This game reminds me of Luxor Adentures. I like the fact that objects are somewhat blurry and somewhat difficult to find. If you get as many items as you can from the object list at the very beginning of your search then you'll gain as many as 15 "points" for hints which is a lot of hints. If you like a basic HOG with no adventure stuff, then this game will be fun for you.

A New Tomb to Explore
There are several things I really liked about this game.
The storyline flowed consistently and continued throughout the game play. You learned more about what archeologists do, how they do it and more as you complete each level.
The music was calming and relaxing and appropriate for the area we were in.
You went hunting hidden objects (itemized lists) in 3 locations, then played a mini game, each time learning more and more.
It was never boring.
Then, there are the things I didn't like.
The areas where you had to search for hidden objects were generally monochromatic in color, making the items difficult to find. They were also miniscule in size and sometimes embedded so deeply in the scene you could never find it without a hint.
Hints - I dislike ANY aspect of this "hint" system. You don't get any hints. You have to purchase them using "intuition" points you earn. From a silhouette costing 1 point to showing where the item is costing 5. And you don't earn that many per level as it is. Also, the points don't seem to carry over. This is a big deal-breaker for me.
Because of those 2 very big issues (for me), this game won't be a purchase but I encourage everyone to give the game a try. It really was fun if you could overlook the issues I personally dislike.

Another junkpile HOG
In half an hour, I completed 2 out of 10 chapters of this game. Basically, you get 3 HO scenes per chapter, plus one very easy minigame. The HO scenes are junkpile, with no connection to the storyline whatsoever. A rubber duckie and a lawnmower in an ancient Egyptian tomb? The hint system was nice - instead of hints, you could use 1 to 5 credits for different hints (silhouette, picture of item, exact location). It would have been nice if one had gotten credit for using no hints at all (I like me a bit of challenge), but being as it is, I would not recommend this game, except for hardcore hidden object fans.

HO, HO, and still more HOs
This game is definitely not for me. It's a succession of overcrowded HO Scenes in which many items are difficult to spot. In addition you start with zero hint. Each object you find increases the amount of "intuition" points, up to 15, which enable you to buy hint credits. But 3 or 4 misclicks decrease that amount. Too many misclicks and you're down to zero.
Hints are of three sorts: show silhouette 1 credit, show what object looks like 3 credits, locate object 5 credits.
Not my idea of fun. I quit after completing the first scene with zero credits.
For HO fans only if they have nothing better to do.

Cleaned my glasses, but still couldn't see the HOs
Well, that's an exaggeration. But the hidden objects are somewhat blurry and don't always look like they should because of the style of artwork. The couple of scenes I did were just a jumble of junk, little of which had anything to do with the storyline. There are credits instead of hints. The maximum number of credits you can have at any one time is 15, so you might as well use them because each object you find adds another credit. I do think you should be able to stockpile more than 15 credits since one hint can cost as much as 5 credits. There are so many fun and visually appealing HO games available; please don't waste your time or eyesight on this one.

Disappointed in this game. Was only 10 chapters long.
Finished the first 2 chapters in 30 minutes. The only was I would buy the other games is if they were under $3.
