Eden's Quest: The Hunt for Akua
Definitely NOT a HOG!! (Thank God!!)
This has to be one of the three or four cleverest games on Big Fish. If you are a HOG fan, though, you probably want to skip it. It's all math, logic, and non-linear puzzles with some sliding and jigsaw thrown in for good measure.
My rating is 4 stars because it was WAY too short for a serious puzzle lover (and most of the puzzles are on the easy side--hints will rarely be needed). That being said, the story line is fun, the characters are quirky, and the artwork is gorgeous.

One of the few I've played over and over.
For originality, one of the best. Puzzles go from simple to very clever, and some were excellent brain teasers. Exciting story line and well organized from beginning to end. One of my best picks.

If you like puzzle variety, you'll love this one!
I LOVE the fact that this game is nothing but puzzles - puzzles - puzzles -- a great variety of different puzzles - some easy, some not so easy -- I wish there were more games with this kind of variety...

WOW Great Puzzle Game.
Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!.
Intriguing story and a good mixture of logic, mathematical, jigsaw and spot the difference puzzles (some easy/some hard).
Kept me enthralled for hours.
Make sure you take advantage of playing YoX whenever you can - the extra hint coins are needed.
Always look for coins in each scene (either a glint or use your torch/metal detector).
You will have to back track alot to find all the totem challenges in each chapter.
This is just a puzzle game so if you are looking for more you might find this game a bit boring.

Another no skip
This is puzzles only. Nothing else to do but puzzles. AND you can't skip, so if you can't solve a puzzle, you can't play any more, even though you've paid for the game.
That's two in a row. I'm not going to read reviews anymore!!!

Good Game but Lots of Typos
The game is good, but the writers clearly have a number of issues with using the wrong words, misstating puzzle/riddles, not understanding how grammar affects language, and giving bad information in the hints. There are also some mathematical and logic problems with the answers they create. (Some of the answers you cannot know without the hints at there's simply not enough information in them to get the answer they want you to have. Like that a cost of potion + cost of bottle = total cost PLUS $5, which you get only in hint 3.)
It's a good game, but they really need a copy editor to clean up the mess.

Great for puzzle fans
I liked the variety and challenge of puzzles in this game - not at all repetitive, although there was a small amount of backtracking to "follow the trail". Would go back and play this one again.

This was not what I thought it was going to be. This is just a bunch of puzzles. And the directions for the puzzles were often not clear so you had to use hints just to figure out what they were talking about. Feel like I kinda wasted my money. And the HOS were not really HOS.

Wits will win!
What a delighful game. You are hunting for the ultimate treasure but to get there you have to use your grey cells - brainpower - and all this combination of adventure and wits makes this unique game totally delightful.
