Great Adventures: Lost in Mountains
Cute & Fun
I really enjoy interactive adventure games and this one certainly fits the bill. The graphics are sharp and cartoonish, the storyline is unique and interesting, and the music is calming but may get repetitive to which you can turn it off. The basic premise is to find objects that will open new areas to explore. There is a sim element to the game and you will need to keep up with rudimentary needs like hunger, rest, and fun. It isn't over tasking though and simple to maintain. You have two characters in which to play simultaneously with for tasks that are geared towards one or the others strengths. The game controls are somewhat annoying as it is easy to accidentally click on objects you've already clicked on but it isn't major. The map seems to be relatively large but I haven't completed the game as of yet. Over three hours into the game and it seems like I'm still just getting started. Some tasks are not that easy to figure out but the hint button is regenerated by finding doggy treats and there are tons of them just laying around. The crisp graphics makes for easy searching even for small objects. There is no HO scenes in the game as it is all search in world for single objects or ones to combine. All in all this is actually a very fun game despite some of the unfavorable reviews. It is certainly worth the investment of one free hour!

different kind of adventure game
I love adventure games, I loved the sims. This combines into one game. It looks like the original sims but you don't get as much interaction - you can feed them and they need some sleep but they do that mostly on their own. So don't worry if you don't like sims games or TM games this isn't that!
Each character has their own strength and weakness, ( ie one character can't pick anything heavy up while the other has strength so can do so). So make sure you try both characters on things.
There is a dog who gives you hints, and if you find him bones will earn more hints. There are butterflies and extra things to collect as well.
You start with a small area and by doing things, and discovering things you slowly open up more places to explore and so on. It's not hard and someone younger should find this fun.
I enjoyed the take the sims to the next step, laid back easiness type game. I didn't think it was overly short very roughly 4-5hr range maybe an hour shorter if you look at walkthroughs and use a lot of hints. It did end quite abruptly.
For a fun, different cute, laid back easier adventure game I give a B++.

Fun Advanture Game!
It is a small funny game by finding all required items following the track of an interesting story. It is easy, relaxing, and with nice cartoon figures. Very good for spending a little time during weekday evening without consuming too much time.

Better for kids than adults, to short
I buy these games on sale. That makes it worth the money. I am in my late 30s so it wasn't the best for me, better for kids. The game is short and not to challenging.

Well I had some fun playing the free trial and then once i unlocked the whole game it was over fairly quickly. No other levels or challenges, very disappointing.

Bad Knockoff of Artist Colony
When I first downloaded the game, I was expecting something akin to Artist Colony meets Virtual Families, both of which I loved by the way. And in some ways it is. The people you're in charge of have needs ie hunger and sleep. You're supposed to find your way around this resort after you get stuck in a blizzard, but it's so simple a child could do it. It would've only taken me an hour or two to finish if my people hadn't needed to sleep. All in all, don't waste your time or money. It's really not worth it.

great for a third grader
Greatly disappointed, No challange whatsoever. The dog even forced you to use a hint after a certain time limit which made it impossible to use your own skill to play the game. Should of had option to turn off hints which then would of made it more appropiate for adults. The bone hints also were too numerous, laying in plain sight and the objectives gave detailed info on how to solve which destroyed the whole concept of playing a game in which you can't loose. This overall is a kiddie game which then I would recommend for anyone about 9 years old.
