Awakening: The Dreamless Castle
Better Than Most Fantasy Movies
Ok, so there's not a lot of visual action, but I like that this is a continuing story line of significance. For me this is like an interactive movie with puzzle clues. It's an entrancing story.

Best game for preteen girls
This game is beautiful in visuals, but there is little challenge. It is a great game for preteen girls with the princess and fairy theme. It would be great for moms to play with little ones as well.

Pleasant game. Ideal for casual gamers.
It is not a complicated game, the HOS are few but nice, and it is almost linear (there is a bit of backtracking at the end which comes as a surprise). The puzzles are OK (but I could have done with less "Simon says" minigames) The settings are pretty enough, and the storyline is quite simple. No pressure. Just a pleasant time to be had.
If you are an expert game who thrives on challenge, pass it up and get "Green Moon" If you are a casual gamer, it is a nice way to while away spare time.

OK But Not Memorable
I enjoyed this game, but it didn't grab me one way or the other. Pretty average I guess you would say. The graphics were good and there was a variety of games. the extra games at the end were a good addition and something I hadn't seen before.

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.
