Beautiful Game This is a great game for little "princess" girls, but visually pleasing enough to keep interest. The puzzles are pretty easy and the game itself is really short, but in all, it's a pretty fun game. February 5, 2012
A Wonderfull Tale I loved the Awakening, what a great game, and the graphics are exceptional! November 16, 2011
Loved it! Loved the whole series. Great story, great visuals. November 16, 2011
Geared toward young girls, still fun for adults. The theme of this game is definitely girly. Flowers, fairies and unicorns abound. But the design and illustrations are nicely done and not cloying-cute, so the girly factor isn't a turn off. Most mini-games are simple (such as matching pairs of objects, simple color mixing), as they should be for the younger set, but not boringly simplistic. A few are actually rather challenging. Puzzles and tasks are straight-forward, with ample clues and not much back-and-forth looking for items. Generally, items needed for a task or puzzle are found in the same room as the puzzle. There seems to be no over-click penalty. There is no task list to refer to, but the simplicity of the tasks mean that such a list is not really missed. Gameplay hints are pretty unhelpful, as they are not contextual but simply seem to point out areas of interest (which you've probably already found yourself). November 21, 2011
Mayzy's Review- Awakening: The Dreamless Castle The Dreamless Castle is the first of the Awakening series. Imagine that you wake up and realize that you've been asleep for 100 years and not a single hair is out of place. That's when you realize that you must be a princess in a fantasy kingdom. The fairies and goblins help, too. The game follows Princess Sophia as she attempts to free herself from the castle in which she's been sleeping, with the help of her cute little Tinkerbell-esque fairy, Mira (aka 'The Hint Button') The game is gorgeous. The art is light-hearted, full of fantasy and femininity, without being utterly girly. The Awakening series, in general, is one of the most visually appealing that I've come across. If you play through all of the Awakening series (currently there are three), you will definitely note a progression in the complexity of the plot and puzzles. This first game is fairly straightforward and honestly pretty easy. Good if you just want to relax. There are not a lot of hidden object scenes and you will find a lot of adventure-type quests. Overall, this is a splendid game for a younger audience and might be a great way to introduce a daughter or niece to puzzle games. November 27, 2011
Beautiful, fanciful game One of my favorites in the genre. It's very easy, but sometimes it's fun to play easy games, especially when you feel stressed out and aren't really looking for a challenge, just want to relax and have fun. I'd say it should also be good for children as well. The art is beautiful and it is lighthearted. November 21, 2011
Another game has surprised me I rarely go for this kind of game--from the outside it looks very childish, and the first few puzzles and tasks are very easy. But there is a nice undertone to this game. No one is helping you, even the goblins who are supposedly there to serve you in your long dreamless sleep. Eventually you will realize this is not a game for little girls. Yes, there are fairies and unicorns, but there is also drinking, gambling and other unpleasantness among the goblin ranks. And in spite of the bright and gorgeous palace in which you find yourself, you can't help but feel more and more surely that something is wrong here, something you should remember. You are filled with a sense of loneliness. The story isn't dark, and the graphics are incredible. None of the search or puzzle games are very challenging. But the game is longer than it seems it will be and there is plenty to do as you look for the final escape from your beautiful prison. This was definitely a perfect Sunday afternoon game--didn't require me to think as hard as the games I normally buy, but still gave me a great sense of value at the end. March 18, 2012
relaxing game, especially after a stressful day slaying dragons at the office in this puzzle-filled hidden object adventure story (the first in the "awakening" series), you are a princess who has awakened in a mysterious abandoned castle. you don?t know who you are nor what you are doing in that place. thus, your goals are (1) to find out your identity and of course (2) to escape. to accomplish those tasks, you must solve puzzles and brain-teasers and locate a variety of hidden objects. you are helped along the way by a few friendly goblins and you have a companion fairy, mira, who accompanies you (as your hint button). graphics: simply gorgeous and beautifully rendered! really fun to look at and to interact with. the hidden objects aren't very difficult to find (note that there are few actual hidden object scenes). i appreciated that the hidden objects scenes were not the typical junk piles (always annoying to look through). in this game, there are a lot of puzzles and brain-teasers that are imaginative and varied -- for example, some arithmetic puzzles, simple logic brain teasers, and a goblin version of mahjong -- but all are fairly straightforward to solve. music: kinda nice: not too distracting or annoying. storyline: well-designed and carefully developed. there are no evil wizards or ghosts here, but still i got the feeling that there was something mysteriously wrong, perhaps forgotten or lost, as i played this game. certainly this beautiful castle is the princess's prison, and as such, it almost seems a metaphor for life: do you remain imprisoned in a beautiful cage or strive to escape so you can explore and experience the (possibly dangerous) larger world? weather forecast: unlike so many games i play and own that take place in the middle of a dark and stormy night, the weather in this game is bright and sunny (at least in the demo). my interaction: one hour demo. i'd guess this game was designed for beginning gamers and children (especially girl children), however, even though i am neither a beginning gamer nor a ten-year-old girl, i plan to purchase this game anyway. summary: the artwork is beautiful and the story is engaging. designed for beginners and girls, this game is great for everyone (even adults!) if you want something relaxing and cheerful to do in the evening or whilst traveling.

A good relaxer. I usually go for the darker creepier games. But I found a free game code, so why not? Turns out it was a fun game. The artwork was pretty and the games were fun, not too challenging. It was nice to play this on a gloomy day when I didn't want to get out of bed. Nice to just play and relax without getting worked up or frustrated. The hidden object scenes were clear and bright so I didn't have to crouch over the screen and squint, so no headache.The hint system is the kind I'm not fond of, it doesn't show you where to go, just says there's nothing to do in the current room. I didn't need it more than once, but that one time I had to go from room to room hitting hint to find out what I had missed. Doesn't ruin the game though. :) Overall I do recommend this game for an easy day in bed. Not so much if your looking for a challenge. But It's a good break from the darkness. January 13, 2013
Sooo cute! 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! May 15, 2013
