Sarah Maribu and the Lost World
It looks like a kiddie game, but is far from it. You find hidden objects,collect tools to finish each level. No need for a map. Before you know it, your hooked,,

Simple, easy, brainless fun
And that's just what the doctor orders sometimes. Sarah and her boyfriend are visiting her Grandfather's uncharted island, minding their own business when her boyfriend disappears - or was he taken by the island's inhabitants? The free trial was full of great visuals, not too difficult to find items/tools in the HOGs and everywhere you went there was an HOG that led you to another HOG and another and another while gathering tools and then once you finished your hunting and gathering of items and tools you completed whatever the goal was in the level and moved on. My granddaughter could probably play this. I can't believe a strategy guide is available separately because I didn't see the need but, who knows, maybe further into the game you do. I played this at a time when the "doc" definitely was ordering mindless simplicity and my reaction when the free trial was over was "NO! and ARGH!". Obviously, I am purchasing it now so I can finish it. Glam-ma says go for it.

Simplistic, But So What?
Normally, I stay away from games that are 100% hidden object and nothing else, but for some reason, I like this one. Maybe it was the colors or the landscapes, or the tons of different objects it presented. Maybe it was the dinosaurs. It certainly wasn't the story or the plot, but it just felt good playing it. The background music was kind of catchy and upbeat. I got off on the ending credits where the couple was supposed to be relaxing far away from the lost world and its denizens, and then a small dinosaur starts sneaking across the screen behind them. Sequel in 20 years?

Fun hidden object game
I found this game very boring, with little conections with the title. The to find objects, are silly and poorley hidden. Overall the game is not worth playing.

Fun to play but too easy
Not a bad game just a little easy HOG.

It was ok
The colors were very bold and pretty, they game was just ok, I played the free hour but did not download it. It is a good game for something that doesnt take alot of thought, you just play thru.

A very poor game.
I just don't understand that there are people who liked this game.
This game has only HOS and a view puzzles.
The puzzles where so easy; my 8 year old soon had no problems with it.
The HOS where easy to find.
This is only nice for children around 5/6 years old.
I like games with a challange like The Agon or Art of Murder.

couldn't get into it
I tried it while it was $2.99 and didn't buy it. The graphics are terrible, cartoonish and grainy. The sparkles were inaccurate and kept pointing me to things i couldn't do yet. I'm always looking for games that are fun without being creepy but this was boring and frustrating, not up to par with some of the newer HO games!
