Awakening: The Dreamless Castle
The "Awakening" games are for young and old. They are cute, easy and relaxing.
The journal contains the clues you found. There is no map but a lot of to and fro.
Ok, there is no real challenge, but it gave me 2 hours of enchanting time!

HIGH QUALITY GAME
A little less than 4 hours in casual mode. Game tracks playing time. After the game is played, you can play Goblinjong to reveal various secrets of goblins and fairies. Ending sets up the next adventure for Princess Sophia. Very enjoyable game.
Largely an adventure game in a medieval castle. 1st in a series. Beautiful graphics and well-developed, skillfully-told story. A little light on the uncluttered, colorful and very detailed HOS ? and most of the objects look like they really belong there. Experienced players will find the game loaded with a wide variety of interesting but fairly easy (although they do vary in difficulty) puzzles/mini-games. Newer players may have to give the puzzles and mini-games a little more thought, but they aren?t tough enough to cause you to pull your hair out. Hint system (a fairy) is fairly helpful, pointing you in the right direction. Very nice voice overs

This is my second in the the Awakenings series. I really enjoyed Moonfell Wood, but this one just seemed way too short. Took me a full 2 hours less to complete. That said, I have to say I did like the game. I am involved with the Awakenings characters and have purchased the other two games and am looking forward to continuing on with the journey.

I love all the Awakening Games, since I bought all three, I can't really fault them. Visually stunning, sometimes I just sit back and watch the birds and animals play. I love how these hidden Object games have advanced visually. The plot is simple and yet can be challenging, always fun though.

Good story, fun challenges
I enjoyed this game. I liked the storyline and the length of the game was just right. If the puzzles had been a little more challenging, I would have rated it a 5.

A pretty and easy puzzle game
The game has beautiful graphics, and good sound. The storyline is a bit confounded and relativley generic. Most of the puzzle are very easy. Finding objects is pretty easy as well. Not exceptionally challenging. Game is also kind of short. A decent buy.

A gorgeous game
Beautiful graphics, a lovely story & a good challengel level - what more can you ask for?
This game is a moderate challenge level - some puzzles are quite easy, others hard, but overall the game will make you think without crying in frustration.
The graphics are lovely, the music is soothing. All in all it's a lovely experience.
A word of warning: This game is very long, be prepared to take hours to finish and it's addictive - very hard not to try and finish in one sitting! You have been warned! LOL

A fun fantasy adventure with fairy tale overtones.
A different take on the Sleeping Beauty story, however, I feel this game has a lot to offer. Graphics are well done, music is appropriate, puzzles are engaging without being too difficult. I did get a little tired of playing one of the 'puzzles' again and again (don't want to give too much away), however it didn't occur often enough for me to set the game aside. Thankfully there were plenty of adventure type puzzles without all solutions being a hidden object search. Definitely a fun way to pass the time.

an objective 3 out of 5 stars, but for fun and puzzles 4 stars
This is a charming little game from boomzap, what I call a filler game, an easier game to be played between harder games. It is by far the easiest in the series but I found it to be the most enjoyable. If you play the others you can see that this is the first in the series and they have progressed in length, graphics and hardness.
I love the graphics and the fairytale story, it is certainly a game that you could give to your young daughter to play. I love how the puzzles were one after another but they were sadly super easy, but they were a bit different, there wasn?t a pipe or gear puzzle to be found.
If you love hidden object games then this isn?t for you as they are few and far between and a different kind (thankfully!) from the normal junk pile you usually see, but they were really well done.
It was short 3hrs for me and I?m not a fast player, but I didn?t feel cheated. I love at the end in the main menu how there is a mah-jong game you can play and apparently there is a further part of the story upon completing it (non vital). I don?t like the game, but I appreciate the thought of putting it in.
It may appear dated compared with modern HOPAs but for a fun, different lighthearted game with loads of puzzles it?s a very good B- from me. A laid back easier, relaxing Sunday a?noon game or for your kids.
