Awakening: The Dreamless Castle
For a good adventure
-I just finished, Awakening: The Dreamless Castle, and while it was a good game, it never really drew me in like the better games do. The graphics, while cartoon-like were clear and easy to see. The HOS games were somewhat easy. The mini games made you think at times but others were just tedious. This lowered the challenge level. The better types of HOS games have mini games that border on frustrating but are solvable, I think. That way when you do solve them you feel a sense of accomplishment. The game seemed to be somewhat short. And while I would recommend this game for beginners or maybe early intermediates, I would not recommend it for experienced players looking for a challenge.

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.
